This Crosstalk is an update concerning news surrounding the continued unveiling of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
Vic began by playing audio cuts from a discussion between Kathleen Sebelius and Republican Representative John Shimkus from Illinois over her repeated claims that mandated health services don’t raise the cost for consumers in the form of higher insurance premiums.
In other cuts from the discussion, the abortion coverage factor is covered along with the current enrollment/payment/coverage situation and why payment seems impossible to execute on the Obamacare website.
Vic also made listeners aware of other Obamacare related stories in the news including:
–South Carolina aims to nullify Obamacare.
–Doctors orders: If you like your medicine, you can keep it?
–The Affordable Care Act forces companies with more than 50 workers to purchase
health insurance for them or pay large fines. The IRS is saying that includes
volunteer fire fighters as they are considered employees.
