Catholic university drops student health insurance, cites ObamaCare

May 16, 2012 in Uncategorized

 We simply cannot allow another 4-years of of dictatorial obamanations like ObamaCare. Do you remember how this legislation came about?  There was the “Cornhusker kickback”, the “Louisiana purchase”, and the “Florida flim-flam”. Then  $500B was stolen from the senior Medicare program. It has already resulted in a large number of  our MA  Medicare Advantage plans being canceled.  Then there are the inside deals like the Obama Administration’s buying off AARP’;s Medigap plans  because they   campaigned for Obamacare. This exemption is estimated to provide AARP with over $1B in profit over 10 years. 

Then there are the other perpetrators  like Nancy Pelosi who retorted when  asked what is in the ObamaCare legislation,  “We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.”

The saga continues with the Obama Administration’s  trampling of our 1st Amendment right of Freedom of Religion with Administrative Law. This has resulted in the Franciscan University in Steubensville, Ohio’s cancellation of  health Insurance.

We can’t simply talk to the choir. We must explain these issues to our Liberal and Independent friends and family.

A university official told Fox News Radio the students’ basic $600 policy was going to double in cost in the fall and triple next year and that the school’s insurance provider said the increases were the result of the federal Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The school cited the contraception mandate, but also a requirement that the maximum coverage amount be increased to $100,000 for policyholders
