Guest: Twila Brase
Twila Brase is the President of the Citizens Council for Health Freedom and is a certified public health nurse. She provides commentary for the one-of-a-kind Health Freedom Minute, provides testimony at the state legislature, meets with members of Congress and speaks around the nation.
Jim began by noting that in April, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was brought in to testify before the Senate Finance Committee chaired by one of the writers of Obamacare, Senator Max Baucus. In the exchange between them, Senator Baucas stated that he feared a coming train wreck.
Fast forward to this morning where on Capitol Hill the contractors behind the botched rollout pointed fingers at the government for failing to test the system before the launch. Even some Democratic lawmakers are calling for a delay to Obamacare as public outrage is occurring.
Now Kathleen Sebelius is refusing to testify before the House Budget Committee chaired by Congressman Paul Ryan.
In various conferences regarding the Obamacare exchanges, Twila heard that the government was working on contingency plans back in March. That’s interesting news when you consider that Twila described how she heard testimony that Obamacare was a 6 year project and they’re trying to do it in 2 years. Now they’re saying it’s really a 10 year project that they’re trying to do in 3.
This is frightening information when you realize that Obamacare is the largest information technology system on a nationwide scale that’s ever been tried. So it comes as no surprise that people are having trouble getting on to the site, having lock-up problems if they do get on, and if they manage to be able to register for coverage, the payment mechanism doesn’t always work.
What’s the new health fee for employees? Will the mandate be delayed? Is there any reasonable aspect of privacy to the system? Are millions of Americans losing their health plans due to Obamacare? These and other questions are covered during this important Obamcare update.
