(UPDATED 022112 WITH REPLY FROM CONGRESSWOMAN JAMIE HERERRA-BUETLER – UPDATED 121911 WITH REPLY FROM SENATOR PATTY MURRAY) (UPDATED WITH VIDEO) WASHINGTON REPRESENTATIVE JAIME HERRERA-BEUTLER AND SENATORS CANTWELL AND MURRAY VOTES AWAY OUR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS / CONGRESSIONAL VOTING RECORD ON THE NATIONAL DEFENSE AUTHORIZATION ACT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2012

OUR FUTURE HOMES? MAYBE............

As this article outlines, this bill is so draconian you might as well tear up the Bill of Rights.  I am appalled that Congress would do such a thing.  It is now legal to use the might of the United States military against its own citizens in the USA.  All the government needs to do is use the laws and guidelines, the very same ones I have been highlighting on this web site, determine that whatever you are doing falls within the “you might be a terrorist if” guidelines published by the DHA, and the next thing you know, you have the DOD breaking down your door at 3am and hauling you off to jail because simply, they can….  That IS where we are now thanks to the very people who we sent to DC to protect our rights and I am so very disappointed in my Rep.  She is a Freshman and was specifically sent to NOT do what she just did.  Check the list below to see how your Rep voted.  It is truly a bleak and black day in and for America………………

MY LETTER TO MY REPS;

I am writing you to express my dismay at your vote concerning The National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal 2012.  Your main purpose in Congress, as stated by your Oath of Office was to protect the Constitution and the rights of the citizens of this nation.  Your AYE vote on this Bill is blatantly just the exact opposite.  While the poorly crafted language is seemingly aimed at persons inside the United States who are aiding identified terrorist organizations, the language is purposely vague so that it could be interpreted in very broad terms and conditions which can be “cherry picked” and used against the citizenry in most draconian ways.  This Bill effectively tears up the intent of The Bill of Rights as written by our Founding Fathers.  You know this and you still voted in favor of passage of this Constitution crushing legislation.  In my opinion, you are unfit to serve because you willingly violated your oath of office and violated the rights of the citizens of Washington State.  I will not in any way shape or form, support you in your upcoming election.  In fact I think you should be recalled immediately.  I anticipate that your response to this letter will include your rational for this betrayal to your oath and to the citizens you were supposed to represent.  In that light, it will be shallow and not acceptable as usual.

REPLY FROM SENATOR PATTY MURRAY:

Thank you for contacting me with your concerns regarding military detention.  It is good to hear from you.  As you know, in the aftermath of the attacks of September 11, 2001, the Bush administration devised a new detention system outside of established legal structures of the U.S. criminal justice system and military courts-martial. Through legislation and a series of high-profile Supreme Court rulings, both Congress and the federal judiciary took action to clarify and limit parts of the Bush administration’s detention programs.  Although President Obama has taken some important steps toward the fair and humane treatment of detainees, I believe much more work has yet to be done. I continue to support closing the detention center at Guantanamo Bay and the ability of the Administration to try terror suspects in the U.S. federal court system.  The federal courts are well-equipped to handle these complex and difficult cases—since 2006, federal courts have successfully tried over 300 terrorism suspects while military commissions have tried only three.  I strongly support giving our military and intelligence agencies the tools they need to protect our nation and our service members. I understand some evidence against detainees may be too sensitive to national security to be presented in civilian court or may be tainted due to harsh interrogation techniques.  Right now, the Secretary of Defense and the Attorney General can decide whether to use a military tribunal or a federal court.  I believe the Obama administration should continue to have the flexibility to decide on a case-by-case basis, and I opposed Republican amendments during consideration of the National Defense Authorization Act that would strip the President of this authority.

Please be assured that I will keep your views on this important topic in mind during the 112th Congress. If you would like to know more about my work in the United States Senate, please feel free to sign up for my weekly updates at http://murray.senate.gov/updates/. Thank you again for contacting me and please keep in touch.
Sincerely,

Patty Murray
United States Senator

Lawmaker obtains commitment to revisit detainee language

UPDATED 022112 REPLY FROM CONGRESSWOMAN JAIME HERRARA BEUTLER

February 14, 2012

Thank you for contacting me about Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).  It is an honor to represent the people of Southwest Washington, and it is important for me to hear from folks in our region.

I certainly understand your concerns about Sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA and how these sections impact our civil liberties and Constitutional rights.  I am a firm believer that your federal representative should take a proactive role in preserving your Constitutional rights.

I have not and will not support any legislation that would limit your Constitutional rights or allow American citizens to be detained under military authority and held without due process.  Please let me share with you why I believe the NDAA takes the proper steps to preserve your Constitutional rights and provide the President and our military with the tools they need to combat terrorism.

The NDAA reaffirms that the President may use “all necessary and appropriate force pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF)” against al Qaeda and the Taliban.  The AUMF was authorized following the September 11th terrorist attacks and had not been updated since it was originally sanctioned in 2001.  It is important to provide the President and our military with the resources they need to combat al Qaeda and the Taliban, and this bill accomplishes this goal by reaffirming current laws and without expanding presidential authority.

People had very valid and legitimate concerns about Section 1021 of the NDAA as it relates to the use of force.  Before voting for the NDAA I checked to make sure this legislation will not take away from or infringe upon your Constitutional rights.  The use of force does not apply to U.S. Citizens, in fact Section 1021, Subsection E which explicitly exempts U.S. citizens reads: (e) AUTHORITIES.—Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect existing law or authorities relating to the detention of United States citizens, lawful resident aliens of the United States, or any other persons who are captured or arrested in the United States.

Section 1022 of the NDAA clarifies procedures for how non-U.S. citizens linked to al Qaeda or the Taliban are to be detained.  Evidence must be presented that demonstrates a foreign national’s link to al Qaeda or the Taliban in order for the detainment to be legal. This section clarifies that terrorists apprehended by law enforcement agencies must be held under military custody.  However, Section 1022, Subsection B explicitly exempts U.S. citizens and legal residents.  It reads:(b) APPLICABILITY TO UNITED STATES CITIZENS AND LAWFUL RESIDENT       ALIENS.—

(1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS.—The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States. 

(2) LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS.—The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to a lawful resident alien of the United States on the basis of conduct taking place within the United States, except to the extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States.

Our country continues to be under the very real threat of terrorism, and it is important to make sure our military is proper equipped to protect our citizens.  It is equally important for us to take steps to preserve and uphold our Constitutional rights.  The NDAA accomplish both of these goals.

Thank you again for contacting me on this important issue. I invite you to visit my website at www.HerrreraBeutler.house.gov for additional information or to sign up to be kept up to date on this important issue. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance.

THE GOP ATTACKS FREE SPEECH - CLICK THE PIC FOR THE STORY

HOT HOT HOT

In Section 295 of  HR 3011, there is language that make it against the law to basically criticize the Federal Government which in-turn is a flagrant violation of the 1st Amendment under the Bill of Rights.  At a minimum, this section should be stricken from this legislation.  Until then, I urge all to vote “no” on this HR.  I am shocked that this legislation is sponsored by the GOP.  What part of “Constitution” and Bill of Rights”, don’t they get?  This Congressman Rogers is in his 5th term and it is obvious he has forgotten what his duties are in DC.  I think I can say with a certain amount of certainty that it not to violate his constituents rights.  This is the type of conduct we routinely see coming from the Leftist Democrats but I guess we have to keep a keen eye out for the Right doing the same.  I am further shocked that Rep King is listed as a Co-Sponsor, given his pro-Constitution and Bill of Rights rhetoric.  The complete list of Co-Sponsors of this HR is ;

Rep. Mo Brooks [R, AL-5]..   Rep. Chip Cravaack [R, MN-8]….Rep. Peter King [R, NY-3]

Rep. Daniel Lungren [R, CA-3]Rep. Timothy Walberg [R, MI-7]   Republicans all .

MY LETTER TO MY REPRESENTATIVE ON THIS ISSUE, MINUS THE INCLUDED SECTION 295;

This is a direct assault on the 1st Amendment and this section should be stricken from this Bill.  As an American Citizen, I have the RIGHT to be critical of and criticize the Federal Government in any way I see fit, short of slander, which must be proven by those slandered by said remarks.  I am shocked that it is the GOP sponsoring this Bill and I will be advising everybody I can on this latest assault on our God given rights as outlined by the Bill of Rights.  You can be assured that if you vote Aye on this Bill, you will not in any way shape or form, have any support for you in your next election cycle and I will work tirelessly to make sure you are primaried.

GOP REPUBLICANS WHO SUPPORTED THE FLAWED “START” TREATY

WAY TO GO OBAMA!! YOU JUST SCREWED US AGAIN (WITH THE HELP OF THE TURN COAT REPUBLICANS)

I thought the November elections was supposed to send an unmistakable message to all in Congress that “business as usual” was not acceptable.  Apperantly, some major players did not get the memo…..  They are the following Republicans who backed the treaty;

Sens. Alexander, Cochran, Corker, Lugar, Bob Bennett (Utah), Scott Brown (Mass.), Susan Collins (Maine), Judd Gregg (N.H.), Johnny Isakson (Ga.), Mike Johanns (Neb.), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Olympia Snowe (Maine) and George Voinovich (Ohio).  Lugar, Corker and Isakson backed the treaty in committee.

These Senators are nothing short of a :Benedict Arnold, Brutus, Judas, Judas Iscariot, Quisling, agitator, apostate, archtraitor, backslider, betrayer, bolter, brawler, cockatrice, collaborationist, collaborator, conniver, conspirator, conspirer, convert, convict, criminal, crook, deceiver, defector, deserter, desperado, desperate criminal, double-crosser, double-dealer, double agent, extremist, felon, fifth columnist, frondeur, fugitive, gallows bird, gangster, gaolbird, informer, insubordinate, insurgent, insurrectionary, insurrectionist, insurrecto, intrigant, intriguer, jailbird, lawbreaker, machinator, malcontent, maverick, mobster, mugwump, mutineer, nonconformist, outlaw, plotter, proselyte, public enemy, quisling, racketeer, rat, rebel, recidivist, recreant, renegade, renegado, renegate, reversionist, revolter, revolutionary, revolutionist, rioter, runagate, schemer, schismatic, scofflaw, scoundrel, seceder, secessionist, separatist, serpent, snake, strikebreaker, subversive, swindler, tergiversant, tergiversator, thief, thug, timeserver, treasonist, trimmer, turnabout, turncoat, turntail, two-timer or “Traitor” by any definition.

These people must be primaried in 2012. If any of these Senators are yours, call them, write them, e-mail them, burn the phone lines down and tell them how upset you are with them.  They need to know how bad they just screwed up.

This article in the NY Times is a pack of lies.  They are filling the public with lies and getting them all stirred up against the military.  This is unconscionable.   You keep messing with the military people and pretty soon your going to have to re institute that draft because no one will be enlisting anymore because the benefits are gone and oh yea, the pay is going to take a hit too. Then, all you young people are going to have YOUR lives up-heaved and get paid a pittance and have to like it.  Click  the pic for the article…..

(UPDATED 111910) WAS IT A BIRD? WAS IT A PLANE? OR WAS IT A MISSILE? CHINA DID IT!!!

I have purposely waited a few days to weigh in on this subject simply to see what explanations have been tossed out in an effort to understand what this object was, seemingly coming out of the ocean west of LA.  I have heard everything from commercial jet to private citizen experiment to an actual unknown missile launch.  Being an Air Force Vet and knowing what I know about the federal/military systems that we have in place for this very purpose, to detect and analyze any unknowns entering our airspace, when you consider NORAD with all its capabilities, coupled with the FAA system, I can deduce that the military knows exactly what “it” was and is not saying…..  If they don’t know, they are incompetent and the system doesn’t work.  If this is the case, we have a serious problem with our national defenses.  One way or the other, we’re not being told the truth….

UPDATED 111910 GLEN BECK HAS THIS RIGHT

In my career, I was stationed at a base that was just south of the Kennedy Space Center/Cape Canaveral.  Over the years there, I witnessed many missile launches, both day and night, and I have also observed all manner of jets at high, medium and low altitudes as they traverse through the TCA’s.  In my opinion, from what video and pictures I have seen, this anomaly is nothing like what I have observed from commercial jets, even coming from over the horizon.  The contrail emitted from even 4 engine jets is much less dense, smaller, and dissipates very differently from what is demonstrated in the pictures.  The contrail from the mystery object is exactly what I have witnessed from all the missile launches I have seen.  I have seen Delta and Titan launches and I think that this object was in fact a missile of some sort.  I’m just sayin’………….

Wayne Madsen: China Fired Missile Seen In Southern California

If this is true, this is an unprecedented, IN YOUR FACE provocation, a shot across the bow of the USA and cannot be allowed to stand.  Our Government MUST file an immediate complaint and take all necessary actions to include sanctions against China.  China thinks they own us.  I guess we’ll find out now if they do.   This is going to get ugly. …………

(UPDATED 102110- CONGRESSMAN CALLING FOR INVESTIGATION)(UPDATED 101910 – CHINA WITHHOLDING SHIPMENTS OF RARE EARTH MINERALS – It has begun…….(Updated 101510 WITH LETTER TO BOEHNER AND CANTWELL)CHINA TO OWN 33% OF GAS AND OIL RESERVES IN TEXAS – SOVEREIGN US TERRITORY/RESOURCES OWNED BY A COMMUNIST NATION!!!

 

HEY!! THIS IS IMPORTANT FOLKS! GET ON THIS NOW!!!

 

COMMUNIST CHINA TO OWN US RESOURCES

THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!!!  COMMUNIST CHINA IS GOING TO BE ALLOWED TO OWN, TO OWN, SOVEREIGN US PROPERTY ON US SOIL!!!  YES, THAT IS ALL IN CAP FOR A REASON!!!

 

This cannot be allowed to stand by any measure.  The thought of this “deal” should chill every Red Blooded American to the bone.  I urge all to write, call, e-mail your Reps and tell them that this deal cannot stand.

Lets see, let’s think this out a little bit.

1. We have a company in the US whose greed is such that it thinks that it is a really good thing to sell gas and oil holdings that we need to develop for our own use.

2.  Not only is it a good idea to sell it, lets sell it to a Communist nation who’s long-term goal is to bring the USA to its knees.

3.  Does this not give Red China a legal foothold on US soil?

4.  What would China do if it thought its “interests” we being threatened in Texas?  Would it bring in its own “workers” (troops) in to oversee the operations?  And if so, what legal recourse do we have to stop these foreign troops from being deployed into the fields?

Am I the only one here who sees this as a HUGE mistake and this deal should not be permitted?  How in the hell can our government justify this sale when we here in the USA are struggling under the weight of foreign dependence on fossil fuels when we have the reserves here to sell to a foreign, potentially HOSTILE nation?  Has everybody forgotten the fact that we are supposed to be fighting against Communism, not propping it up?!? Dear God, have we as a nation jumped over the cliff on this??  Maybe so……

MY LETTER TO JOHN BOEHNER AND MARIA CANTWELL ON THIS MATTER. I didn’t write to Patty Murray because I feel she is a lost cause because she 1. couldn’t care less, and 2. Dino Rossi is going to defeat her this election.

I am writing you over concern over the State-owned Chinese energy giant CNOOC, which is buying a multibillion-dollar stake in 600,000 acres of South Texas oil and gas fields.  I do not feel that this deal is in the best, long term interests of the Nation simply because this deal will give Communist China a legal foothold on sovereign US soil, plus I am appalled at the fact that Communist China is being given rights to fossil fuel deposits that were not going to be developed for our own use in the USA when we here in the US need them most acutely.  This is especially egregious keeping in mind the fact that the USA is overly dependent on foreign oil to the point where the United States has taken military action in order to safeguard these resources.  How do you think China is going to react if it is felt that “their” foreign oil resources are at risk?  This whole scenario is unacceptable on many levels.  The Congress should be doing everything in its power to ensure that the jobs that would be created in this field are being produced by American companies, with the fruits of these fields going to the USA in order to reduce our dependence on the foreign supplies we currently import.  By reports, “The deal represents China’s second try at making a big move into the U.S. oil and gas market, following a failed bid five years ago to buy California-based Unocal Corp”.  It is felt that the political climate is now more favorable now, thus the renewed attempt to gain inroads.  Is this sentiment predicated on the fact that China has loaned the US trillions of dollars, thus they feel they have the good ol’ USA literally over a barrel of oil?  I think this may be so.  I predict that this issue is going to become a major problem and a political “hot potato” for any Politician who turned or IS turning, a blind eye to this development.  This deal should not be allowed to come to fruition because this “compact” is not in the best interests of our nation.  I urge you to look into this matter post haste, and stop it immediately.

(UPDATED 050911) GE FAILS TO KEEP U.S. JOBS IN AMERICA WHILE PUSHING ITS “HEALTHYMAGINATION” AGENDA – THE REALITIES OF THE CFLs AND THE GREEN AGENDA See update

THE USA SURRENDERS MORE TO THE CHICOMMS

Here is one for all you out there who believe the GE “Healthymagination” hype being pushed at us via their copious TV ads as of late is a good thing….  If you are familiar with this web site, you will recall the posts detailing the GE/Liberal-Socialist Democrat unholy alliance they set up in order to push their socialized healthcare agenda on us.

As I was reading this story that describes the closing of the last incandescent light bulb factory in the USA, I was disheartened to learn that after this plant closes, the venerable ol’ light bulb will literally burn out, fading forever from the American landscape as we knew it.  This timeless link to Thomas A. Edison will be nothing more than a fond, warmly lit memory, now thanks to the “Greenies” and their schemes.  Because of their agenda, (getting the government to sign off on a ban incandescent bulbs by 2014) we as a society and a nation, are being forced to use the more “eco-friendly” methods of illuminating our life, such as using “Compact Fluorescent Lights” more commonly known as CFL’s.  These bulbs are touted as typically using less electricity and subsequently, producing an equivalent of light output normally associated with a higher wattage incandescent bulb.  It all sounds like a good deal all around right?  We use less electricity, get more light, get more bang for our buck, and life is good, right? Right??……Or is it?

In order to understand my argument, you must first understand how fluorescent lights are made and work.  The principal is pretty straight forward.  You make a glass tube of some sort or shape, fill the tube with a gas that will produce a plasma when electrified, affix electrodes at each end, sealing the ends closed. Apply a DC current and voilà, a fluorescent light.   Well,…. not so fast…..  I left out one very important component; Mercury.  A drop of mercury is added just before the tube is sealed, and its purpose is to enhance and facilitate a much more efficient flow of electrons/current through the gas-filled tube.  As the first charge of current passes through the tube at the end of its production cycle, the drop of mercury vaporizes, filling the tube with mercury vapor.  With all this being said, now that we are all on the same page now, here is the rub.  I remember when these CFL first hit the markets.  Everyone thought that they were kinda cool and would save us a ton of money and hey, life would be good.  Well, shortly there after, the environmentalist groups all stood up and said that the wide spread use of these bulbs would result in mercury being dumped into the landfills and would end up leaching into the ground water.  So the message here was, these bulbs are bad for the environment, don’t use them.  So here we are now, more than a decade down the road, and now the “Greenies” are pushing these CFL so hard, it eventually and purposely, lead to the demise of the incandescent light bulb industry, to which GE is, or should I say “was”, a huge player, AND as it happens, the last remaining US manufacturer of these “antiquated” light bulbs.  So evidently, GE saw no benefit what so ever in saving the industry, and felt no sense of obligation to its employees who occupy the hundreds of jobs that goes along in making these bulbs.  Evidently GE has bought in completely, for reasons, known only to themselves (money), into the “Green” agenda, and apparently, not giving a hoot about its employees.  Kinda brings a new meaning to their motto, “GE, We Bring Good Things To Life” doesn’t it?  GE has without a doubt, failed to do the right thing again by America and develop a US manufacturing base for the CFL industry.  Why would GE just throw in the towel and call it quits?  Could it be that they too want China to have the monopoly on this niche of the lighting industry, or is this just part of the larger government scheme to empower China?  Either or, I find it repugnant that GE or the Feds would turn their back on Americans, favoring a Communist nation over the hard working and at this point, needy, American Work Force.  Granted, this “redistribution of wealth” to China was hatched, I believe during the Clinton era, but, for GE to let this happen to hundreds of their loyal, and I am sure, long time employees, especially in these tough economic times (recession) that we’re now in, is unconscionable and beyond the pale of decency AND patriotism.  I’m sure money, and power, is at the root of all of this.  God knows, they must do everything possible to protect and grow the “bottom line’.  Just look for yourself and see how many “bottom lines” GE has.  My God, this company is a giant, and in times past when companies got this big, powerful and influential, they got busted up by the Feds.  This company is so big, us consumers cannot even hurt it by not patronizing them because they have tentacles all throughout our lives.  And unfortunately, we live in an age now where the government is not benevolent.  It has moved squarely into the malevolent category because these huge behemoth companies pour so much money into Congress and where ever else they can, they have the power to not only sway the governments’ actions, but sway the publics’ perception and opinions as well, thus furthering their un-American, anti-republic agenda as the corrupt politicians take their money, and advise.  And especially in this case, since GE owns such a large number of broadcasting companies, they can engage in all manner of media blitz’s, unchecked, and just bombard the viewers with propaganda that favors GE’s agenda and public persona.

As I mentioned in my earlier post, GE is joined at the hip with the corrupt Feds, trying to push the health care agenda, pushing the notion that digitizing/computerize all your health records will “help” you get better health care in the coming bright, new future of the American health care industry, now that we have all been saved by the Socialist Dems imposition of “ObamaCare”, right?  Well, I don’t see it that way.  As far as the “Healthymagination” campaign is concerned, it is nothing more than a money making scheme for GE.  GE will make an unbelievable amount of money because the Feds are modeling the new healthcare computer system after the GE “Healthymagination” system GE already has in place for its employees.  How convenient!!  How do you feel about unknown types of people’s or entities in the form of various government or commercial enterprises having access to all your medical data at the touch of a button without your permission or knowledge?  This will never happen you say?  Bet me!  You will not only have no knowledge of any of this happening because of the back door approvals having been made authorizing the access, you will then be denied a service of some type or be discriminated against in some way, simply because of your medical background and/or history.  And believe me when I say, you will not benefit from this.  The government or some corporation will, not you.  GE stands to make a ton of money from this.

So, to sum up, the demise of this little innocuous little light bulb plant really is a big deal. GE, China, and the Socialist/Liberal/Marxists benefit while some 200 or more Americans are out of a job, AND an indispensable tool, the incandescent light bulb, is gone, most likely forever……….It is such a crying shame and a sad state of affairs we find ourselves in………But hey!!  We have “Healthymagination” and “ObamaCare”.  All is well with the world….right??

I include here, the text of the letter U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius wrote America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), the national association of health insurers.  In it there is a direct threat from her to the insurers stating, and I paraphrase, that if the insurance companies tell the truth as to the fact that the premiums are increasing due to the government, they well be punished by being excluded from participating in 2014 Health Insurance Exchanges.  Wow!!  Read it for yourself… We have a member of the Presidents Cabinet threatening a private corporation/s if they tell the truth.  Kathleen Sebelius needs to be brought up before Congress after the November elections to explain her conduct.  This must happen!!

Dear Ms. Ignagni:

It has come to my attention that several health insurer carriers are sending letters to their enrollees falsely blaming premium increases for 2011 on the patient protections in the Affordable Care Act.  I urge you to inform your members that there will be zero tolerance for this type of misinformation and unjustified rate increases.

The Affordable Care Act includes a number of provisions to provide Americans with access to health coverage that will be there when they need it.  These provisions were fully supported by AHIP and its member companies.  Many of the legislation’s key protections take effect for plan or policy years beginning on or after September 23, 2010.  All plans must comply with provisions such as no lifetime limits, no rescissions except in cases of fraud or intentional misrepresentation of material fact, and coverage of most adult children up to age 26.  New plans must comply with additional provisions, such as coverage of preventive services with no cost sharing, access to OB / GYNs without referrals, restrictions on annual limits on coverage, a prohibition on pre-existing condition exclusions of children (which applies to all group health plans), access to out-of-network emergency room services, and a strengthened appeals process.  And health plans that cover early retirees could qualify for reinsurance to sustain that coverage for businesses, workers, and retirees alike.

According to our analysis and those of some industry and academic experts, any potential premium impact from the new consumer protections and increased quality provisions under the Affordable Care Act will be minimal.  We estimate that that the effect will be no more than one to two percent.  This is consistent with estimates from the Urban Institute (1 to 2 percent) and Mercer consultants (2.3 percent) as well as some insurers’ estimates.  Pennsylvania’s Highmark, for example, estimates the effect of the legislation on premiums from 1.14 to 2 percent.  Moreover, the trends in health costs, independent of the legislation, have slowed.  Employers’ premiums for family coverage increased by only 3 percent in 2010 – a significant drop from previous years.

Any premium increases will be moderated by out-of-pocket savings resulting from the law.  These savings include a reduction in the “hidden tax” on insured Americans that subsidizes care for the uninsured.  By making sure insurance covers people who are most at risk, there will be less uncompensated care, and, as a result, the amount of cost shifting to those who have coverage today will be reduced by up to $1 billion in 2013.  By making sure that high-risk individuals have insurance and emphasizing health care that prevents illnesses from becoming serious, long-term health problems, the law will also reduce the cost of avoidable hospitalizations.  Prioritizing prevention without cost sharing could also result in significant savings: from lowering people’s out-of-pocket spending to lowering costs due to conditions like obesity, and to increasing worker productivity – today, increased sickness and lack of coverage security reduce economic output by $260 billion per year.

Given the importance of the new protections and the facts about their impact on costs, I ask for your help in stopping misinformation and scare tactics about the Affordable Care Act.  Moreover, I want AHIP’s members to be put on notice: the Administration, in partnership with states, will not tolerate unjustified rate hikes in the name of consumer protections.

Already, my Department has provided 46 states with resources to strengthen the review and transparency of proposed premiums.  Later this fall, we will issue a regulation that will require state or federal review of all potentially unreasonable rate increases filed by health insurers, with the justification for increases posted publicly for consumers and employers.  We will also keep track of insurers with a record of unjustified rate increases: those plans may be excluded from health insurance Exchanges in 2014.  Simply stated, we will not stand idly by as insurers blame their premium hikes and increased profits on the requirement that they provide consumers with basic protections.

Americans want affordable and reliable health insurance, and it is our job to make it happen.  We worked hard to change the system to help consumers.  It is my hope we can work together to stop misinformation and misleading marketing from the start.

Sincerely,

Kathleen Sebelius

TURN PLASTIC BACK INTO OIL AND REDUCE DEPENDENCE OF FOREIGN OIL

TURN PLASTIC BACK INTO OIL... WHAT A NOVEL CONCEPT...

As everyone who knows me will tell you, I am not a tree-hugger or a “greeny”.  However I do believe in the responsible use of resources.  I found this video of a machine invented in Japan that takes waste plastic and turns it back into usable oil.  Sounds incredible huh?  I was under the impression that the only recycling option available was to remelt the plastic and use it to make clothing, carpet and other such things.  But, as demonstrated in this video, the oil is reconstituted back out of the plastic in a very simple process.  I have not heard of this here in the States.  I wonder why?  It sounds like this has been around for some time as the narrator indicates that he has traveled the world with this device showing others how this works and thus helping them rid themselves of this garbage mess, and thus providing themselves with a very usable resource.  Click the pic for the story.
