    TN state senator compares Obamacare signees to Holocaust victims
    Posted: May 05, 2014 1:27 PM EDT
    Reported by Jennifer Johnson

    Reaction has been swift and bipartisan against comments made by an outspoken Tennessee state senator who compared Affordable Care Act signees to Jewish people being sent to Nazi death camps. “Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory signups for Obamacare is like Germans bragging about the number of mandatory signups for ‘train rides’ for Jews in the 40s,” said Campfield in a blog post on Monday morning.

    Columbus Dispatch Misleads On New IRS Obamacare Rule
    Blog ››› 3 hours and 13 minutes ago ››› SALVATORE COLLELUORI

    A Columbus Dispatch editorial claimed the IRS was attempting to punish employers for sending their employees to Affordable Care Act (ACA) exchanges instead of providing employer-based insurance. However, the rule would ensure that employers don’t get a special benefit for sending their employees to the exchanges, which they are still allowed to do, while preserving the employer-based health care system.

    As few as six percent of Columbus residents could be without health insurance by 2016. That’s according to a new study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Urban Institute. The report says the Affordable Care Act will help reduce the number of uninsured in Columbus by about two-thirds over the next two years, down to about 35,000 people.

    Staff reporter – Columbus Business First

    About 11 percent of Ohio adults remain uninsured in the first year of full implementation of Obamacare – a dramatic drop from a steady 17 percent to 19 percent rate over the past eight years, according to the Ohio Health Issues Poll released Tuesday. The rate is the lowest since the survey began before the Great Recession in 2006 when 12 percent of respondents were uninsured.

    Boehner Says Rolling Back Obamacare Is GOP Priority
    November 06, 2014 2:10 PM ET
    SCOTT NEUMAN

    House Speaker John Boehner said approval of the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline and the repeal of key parts of Obamacare are among Republicans’ top priorities now that the GOP has won control of both houses of Congress.

    “Obamacare is hurting our economy, it’s hurting middle-class workers, and it’s hurting the ability to create more jobs,” Boehner said, adding that Republicans want to replace it with “common-sense reforms.”

    More like removing the medical device tax, redefining full time work to 40 hours for insurance purposes, possibly eliminating the employer mandate.

    Obamacare Repeal Would Add Billions to Deficit
    JUNE 19, 2015 6:29 PM ET
    BRIAN NAYLOR

    Congress’ official scorekeeper says repealing Obamacare would increase the federal budget deficit and the number of uninsured Americans by 24 million. The report from the Congressional Budget Office comes as Washington awaits a ruling by the Supreme Court that could end insurance subsidies for some six million people in 30 states.

    By Ariane de Vogue, CNN Supreme Court Reporter
    Updated 10:43 AM ET, Thu June 25, 2015

    Washington (CNN)Obamacare has survived — again. In a major win for the Obama administration, the Supreme Court held in a 6-3 decision that the Affordable Care Act authorized federal tax credits for eligible Americans living not only in states with their own exchanges but also in the 34 states with federal exchanges.
