I attended the Oro Valley Town Council meeting last night and was dismayed that Mayor Hiremath seems to think he is King. He and he alone negotiated an agreement to adhere to “confidentiality” commitments so that the public could not know the “real” amounts from “secret deals”. I have not heard so much hubris from a politician since Gruber admitted that Obamacare had to be kept “secret” in order to pass it. Otherwise, the stupid (yes Gruber called the voters stupid) voters would never allow it to pass.
(NAPSM)—No hay mejor regalo que le podamos dar a nuestras familias que el de la buena salud. Desafortunadamente, los hispanos son el grupo con menos seguro médico en el país. Las cifras muestran que alrededor de 13.2 millones de Latinos carecen de cobertura médica. A la vez, somos el grupo más propensos a desarrollar condiciones y enfermedades crónicas como la diabetes, el alto colesterol; y la obesidad—todos factores de riesgo para ataques de corazón y derrames cerebrales. Es por estas razones que se hace aún más importante que los hispanos tengamos acceso a un cuidado de salud médico de alta calidad que nos permita detectar y mejor manejar nuestra salud y cualquier enfermedad que nos toque enfrentar.
(NAPSM)—Si usted o algún ser querido está entre las 7.3 millones de personas inscritas en un plan de cobertura médica, ahora es el momento de ver si necesita hacer cambios para el año que viene.
Open enrollment for health plans under the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, began Nov. 15 and runs through Feb. 15. Dozens of plans at various cost and benefit levels are being offered by many companies, and enrollment can be confusing.
(NAPSI)—If you or someone you care about is among the 7.3 million people enrolled in a marketplace health plan, now is the time to review the plan to see if you need to make any changes for next year.
(NAPSI)—As the 2014 election made clear to many pundits, Americans are as discontented with the president’s leadership as they are with the dysfunction provided by a divided Congress.
Health care “navigators” in Arizona said they learned a lot during last year’s bumpy rollout of Obamacare and are ready to apply lessons learned to the second round of open enrollment that kicks off Saturday.
Ann Kirkpatrick voted the Obama agenda 89 percent of the time during the last Congress. She is on record as not second-guessing Obama and supporting Obamacare (which she is exempt from). Ann does not care what the district wants. She only cares what Obama and the Democrat elites want. Anne is the consummate Obot.
It is time residents of Southern Arizona has a representative, who is more concerned of her position, than all of her constituent’s.
After retiring from a job heading up a homebuilding company for about a decade, Scott Smith spent six years as mayor of Mesa, where he developed a reputation as a problem solver and networked well enough to be elected the president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors.
Republican Martha McSally thought she had won a seat in Congress two years ago. Before all the votes were counted in her race against Democratic incumbent Ron Barber, McSally jetted off to Washington, D.C., for freshman orientation.
Three Republican candidates—House Speaker Andy Tobin, state Rep. Adam Kwasman and rancher/businessman Gary Kiehne—are vying for the chance to take on Democratic Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick in Arizona’s Congressional District 1, a sprawling district that includes most of rural Eastern Arizona and stretches from Oro Valley, Marana, SaddleBrooke to Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon and Northern Arizona Native American reservations.

Please, please save us from the so-called analysis of Richard Brinkley. “Obamacare was intended to deprive people of quality healthcare?” Really? For those of us who have long supported universal health care so that all Americans will have “quality healthcare”, I found this comment totally insulting.
Just as the purpose of Obamacare was not to provide quality healthcare to more people (indeed, it achieved just the opposite), the strategy of climate change has nothing to do with the climate, hot or cold.
