SORT BY Relevancy
Five years ago, the Affordable Care Act was signed into law. And today, we have Navigant’s Paul Keckley looking at the goals of the law and discussing what’s working and what’s ahead for the ACA.
So Is It Working?
Has it increased access to coverage? Yes, at least for some, and at least for now.
Has it reduced costs? It’s too soon to know.
Has it improved the public’s understanding of the U.S. health system? Regrettably no.
The stakes in the states are higher
The winners and losers are shaking out
Innovators with value-driven solutions are disrupting the status quo
The ACA will be a spotlight issue in Campaign 2016
Tune in to listen to more of what Paul Keckley has to say with our host Patricia Salber (@docweighsin).
Showtime 8AM-10AM EST: It's Anything Goes Monday! Today is your day so bring your topics or questions to conversations. Can't think of anything to talk about or questions to asks, never fear...I have plenty to say. Just a few examples on the table: Has the GOP given up on stopping ACA/Obamacare? Should POTUS have military experience? Is the FDA (Federal Drug Administration) approving drugs at the request of politicians and medical societies? Is inequality a ficticious and just an excuse?
Join me "In the Pickle Barrel" as we take a look at whatever comes up on Anything Goes Monday. ake part in the conversations in the online Chat Room or call and share your thoughts live on ar at 855-236-2486.

On the April 23, 2015 episode of Liberal Dan Radio:
Yesterday was Earth Day. To celebrate it I had shared a picture on my facebook wall saying "Happy Libertarian Earth Day" with a picture of a sunken ship and pollution everywhere. This caused a big debate. On many issues I do believe Libertarians have it right (mostly because they agree with liberals). However, in some areas their line of reasoning is flawed and even damaging. Can the invisible hand effectively stop pollution? Does the non aggression principal allow for government regulation?
In the second half I will be discussing King V Burwell. Arguments were made in March to the Supreme Court. I will have on as a guest Todd Haley who was able to get affordable health coverage under the ACA and whose case was brought up by Harvard Law School Center for Health Law and Public Policy. Mr. Haley would lose affordable coverage and would be adversely effected by a ruling against subsidies on exchanges that are federally run.
Those topics, headlines, tweet of the week, and more on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That's Right at 8pm Central on Blog Talk Radio.

With a hurricane of negativity & false ACA horror stories flying from the right, the truth is out there. The truth is negative (at the hands of Red State legislatures & Red State Governors), with denial of Medicaid Expansion money (already paid for by Red State taxpayers) costing lives. The truth is also positive, with hundreds of thousands of citizens getting more comprehensive coverage, as well as lower monthly premiums and lower deductibles.
Our first guest is Lindsey Benage, of Kansas, who has seen the negativity of Red State pushback, as manifested by ultra-conservative Gov. Sam Brownback and the Kansas legislature. People are most certainly dying, as evidenced by Mayor O'Neal walking to DC to raise awareness that citizens of his town Belhaven, NC are dying without the services at Pungo Hospital. Lindsey is passionate about speaking up for the lives of those that will certainly die without Medicaid or insurance. That is why she is organizing, with the help of others (including you), a nationally coordinated series of vigils to acknowledge the hurt that comes without the help of Medicaid Expansion or good health insurance coverage. Please tune in just after 7pm Eastern to hear Lindsey's story and to get more details about the effort to raise awareness through these vigils. She will have most of the first hour.
Our second guest is already a friend of the show. Pamela John has appeared once before (back in May), sharing many stories submitted by real folks who shared their ACA success stories. Please tune in after 8pm Eastern to hear more about her story and, more importantly, the ACA Success Stories!
With so many lives on the line, this will be an important show. Don't miss it! Let's get the conversation going...
What a nice Jobs Report. Not perfect, but nice. It has a lot of what I look for. Besides job growth, we had signs of less discouragement as 350,000+ people began looking for work again. This led to an uptick in the unemployment rate, but for all the right reasons. That being said, there still reason to raise an eyebrow (or two), but overall, it was a third month in a row of encouraging news.
Obamacare is under attack. We will look at this upcoming Supreme Court Case, King v Burwell. What will happen this time? Will Roberts jump ship again? Will it be Kennedy this time. I'll tell you why Obamacare opponents should not get their hopes up. The intent of congress will rule this ruling.
And back to Netanyahu .... As the Grinch said about Christmas, maybe this speech isn't just a speech. Maybe this speech is a little bit more. I wonder which story will have more staying power .... Brian Williams foggy memory or the Netanyahu uproar. In any case, there is now backlash to the backlash and we will talk about it.
And in that same region, John Kerry says we are 'on the road' to defeating ISIS. I think the Allstate Mayhem dude keeps re-calculating Kerry's GPS. What road is Kerry talking about? Has that road even been built yet? I wonder.
All this and more Monday night at 8pm EST ..... Come jump into my pond.

The so called "GOP controlled Senate" took another 'whup'n' with it's failure to override Obama's veto of legislation approving the Keystone XL pipeline. How did this failure happen? Is the pipeline plugged or is there still a chance to move this project forward?
The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has definitely left the ACA (aka Obamacare) "In the Pickle Barrel". Do not expect a quick answer on this very important ruling. When and how will SCOTUS finally address this issue?
It started with a woman anxiously awaiting the healthcare.gov site going live. (As she said) It was like Christmas morning logging on to the healthcare.gov site for the first time. Pamela Johns was able to sign up on the site, get health insurance through the exchange and saved more than $100 a month in health insurance premiums. She took to Facebook to share the good news in a status update. Many friends congratulated her and one friend suggested the idea of creating a page for success stories like hers.
Pamela, along with said friend Bruce Bacon approached Rob Miller about his "ACA Signup Success Stories" page on Facebook. They agreed to work together to promote his page and get the truth of the "Obamacare" success stories out there amidst the government shutdown and the nasty talk about the troubled launch of healthcare.gov.
Within weeks, the site jumped from 12 likes to 700 likes to now over 10,000 likes on Facebook.
Pamela John, one of the purveyors of the ACA Success Stories truth will be joining us on The Social Spitball Show to talk about some of those stories. She will also share more about what she, Rob and Bruce are up to with so many others who have jumped in to make this page a success as well.
With the sharing of truth, comes the healing of our nation...quite literally.
Won't you call (646) 478-3349 and press 1 to share your ACA Success Story with Pamela, Barbara Dee, Bram Sarkowski and the listening audience?
This is most certainly a needed conversation. Let's get this most important conversation going...

Any elected official who feels minimum wage is irrelevant and Obamacare is irrelevant, surely has chosen the wrong job. Elected officials who blocks Veterans bills surely has chosen the wrong job. Does elected officials understand the role of government employees? Government employees by all accounts should have the best interest of their constitutents up front in their every effort. There are issues individuals can and should do on their own. There are issues government must do because people can't. When an official's state has 17% poverty and 11% unemployment and he says minimum wage is irrevelant, and Obamacare is irrevelant, exactly who is it that benefits by repealing Obamacare and from not raising wages? Exactly what does Obamacare, minimum wages and Veterans mean to your elected officials?

Our destiny is largely in our own hands. If we find, we shall have to seek. If we succeed in the race for life must be by our own energies, and our own exertions. Others may clear the road, but we must go forward or be left behind in the race for life. If we remain poor and dependent the wealth of others will not avail us. If we are ignorant the intelligence of others will do but little for us. If we are foolish, the wisdom of others will not guide us. If we are wasteful of our time and money, the economy of others will only make our destination the more disgraceful. ~ Frederick Douglas
