Every Congress has a job to do for citizens of America. What does congress do? Nothing! What does 113th congress need to do for Americans? Pass veterans bills. Pass President's jobs bills. Expand medicaid. pass universal back ground checks. Renew unemployment benefits. raise minimum wages. Moratorium on H1B Visas. Do not increase immigration numbers. Pass immigration reform. Pass infrastructure bill. It this seems like a lot, it is. Because GOP has been a do nothing congress!
Congress' job is to pass bills into laws to improve America for the greater good. What does the leader in 112th and 113th congress do? Nothing!
111th Congress passed the Affordable Care Act bill into law. What did 112th Congress do? Voted 50 times to repeal Affordable Care Act law!
113th congress resides over Border crisis. The resolve is not to neglect children of American citizens while exhibiting charity, compassion under the guise of humanitarian act to children of world citizens.
113th Congress job is to resolve homeland crisis before adding to homeland crisis. The bills many bills blocked by this 113th congress, once passed will put America on footage to the greatest society ever. And here is where we have a problem. The GOP met Jan 20, 2009 with a plan to sabotage the presidency of Barack Obama. The only way to create even an image of failure on the part of President Obama is to destroy Americans. The destruction of America's economy is the result of GOP 1) blocking bills; 2) outsouring US jobs; 3)continuing the importing of H1B visas when qualified Americans need those jobs; 4) locking our American workers.
There are bills to be passed that will fix our economy, but we cannot fall prey as a society to increase immigration numbers over the next decade. We have to 1) penalize employers who are hiring illegal immigrants 2)

Host Richard Yadon is joined by Jon Keeley, Vice President of Pharmacy Services at Principled Dynamics with responsibility for ProSourceRx a turnkey solution for physician dispensing.
Today’s discussion will revolve around the goals of decreasing the cost of Healthcare through Impacting Physician Prescribing patterns. With the HealthCare Reform, the creation of Accountable Care Organizations and many other factors we all know healthcare payers have to continue to evolve to survive. We must either be reactive or determine ways to be proactive in today’s market place. Sadly, the Medicaid payers often have a dilemma contracting physician’s to maintain the minimum panel requirements due to fee schedules that are lower than their commercial counterparts and prescribing requirements around pharmaceuticals that is generally brought with many demanding rules. The confusion of a Physician dealing with many Medicaid payers in their area each with a different set of rules can be frustrating.
Should Idaho make a law to allow law abiding citizens and law enforcement officers to carry concealed weapons on college campuses? Should we also adopt a new amendment to our state constitution allowing for the legislature to approve or deny state agencies from future actions on the people of Idaho? All this and more, coming up in this February 16th edition of Idaho Politics Radio.
Senator Steven Thayn joins us for the second half of the show. He is introducing new legislation to improve healthcare in Idaho, giving the power back to the people. He is working on solutions to block the federal government from overstepping their bounds with the NDAA, and he has recently launched legislation to help high school students with college costs.
Hear interview with Grace Marie Turner, Pres. of the Galen Institute (premiere health care policy think-tank). Listen to her warnings about what states will experience when they take the big step. In an article on Galen are these warnings:Expanding Medicaid would cost states an additional $118 billion through 2023, according to a recent congressional report. The additional spending surely would crowd out funds for education, transportation, parks, public safety, and other vital state needs.Charles Blahous, senior research fellow at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, and Public Trustee for Social Security and Medicare, writes: “The latest CMS Medicaid report projects state Medicaid costs to grow by 158% cumulatively over the next decade, assuming all states opt for expansion.“Even relative to Medicaid’s troubled history of rapid cost growth, these projections point to a coming cost explosion. They embody substantially higher future growth rates than states faced during the last decade. Yet Medicaid already absorbs 24% of state budgets and is described by the bipartisan State Budget Crisis Task Force as ‘crowding out other needs.’”
Texas Continues to Refuse the Medicaid Expansion
Last June, the Supreme Court struck down a requirement of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, that would have forced states to expand Medicaid coverage to cover a greater amount of their uninsured. States, states have a choice whether or not to implement the Medicaid expansion, which the federal government will fund fully for the first three years, and cover all but up to 10 percent in those years following. The expansion will include those 138 percent below the poverty line who are between the ages of 18 and 64. A number of states have since vowed opt out of the expansion... the largest being Texas.
Texas has the highest amount of uninsured residents in the U.S. at 24 percent. Yet, Gov. Rick Perry, the state legislature, and their congressional delegations, have all taken firm stands against this expansion. We talk to John Davidson, Health Care Policy Analyst at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. President Obama Announced New Budget Plan The White House today released the outline of the annual budget proposal they will announce next week. More conservative than the president’s last budget proposal and the Senate budget passed recently, analysts are seeing a lot of compromise. Some of the compromise is likely to garner criticism such as cuts to Social Security. However, such efforts to get House Republicans to pass such proposals don’t seem to be working as House Speaker John Boehner has already said the president is holding real reform to entitlements – quote – hostage. We talk to Bernie Becker, Staff Writer for The Hill.
Join Richard Yadon, Medicaid Matters show host will discuss the year in Medicaid with experts from around the country. 2012 was a big year for Medicaid, how will the years events set the course for change in 2013?

Do you ever think of yourselves as alchemists??? Is that an ingredient of LivingEden??? What do you think??? What is an alchemist??? Walking the pilgrimage of the rainforests brought up the essence of alchemy for me along the way. I also remembered the movie "The Way" which is a pilgrimage of the El Camino. I highly recommend you watch either for the first time or again. Watch it as if YOU are the one walking it with the actors/actresses. Feel what happens to them, be there, taste what they eat, experience what they experience, smell what they are smelling and hear what they are hearing. Then again take a walk through the rainforest the same way and meet the people who live there in peace, abundance, non-competition, wise, in communion with nature and the animals. Then think of alchemy, what is it and how does it pertain to LivingEden. Please send in needs to email@example.com and we will be alchemists for each other and discover what happens. We will also pick a card for someone who calls in live while we are on the show. (We will not do the card on the show but will need your information to get in touch with you afterwards.)

Well here we are for another week of information and entertainment. Hope your week has been great so far.
This week we are talking about moving into expansion. For some reason I feel we are being asked to move into being more of who we are and what we want, so I am looking forward to seeing what clarification we get today. Yay!
So sit back, it is a short one today but we always get tons of information flowing through today and just go with the flow.
Most important, lets have some fun.
Love, laughter and light,
