Where the Rubber Meets the Road in Healthcare

The Senate will vote today on proceeding to decide if they will vote on repealing Obamacare or repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Down and Dirty Look at the Senate Healthcare Bill

Not Perfect but a Good Start What’s staying the same is the government-managed individual insurance market exchanges will continue, as will the subsidies for people based on income, age, and where they live.

Idaho is a state of great beauty that has huge natural resources and plenty of clean air and water (except during our fire season.)

Rebuilding our Healthcare System: A Better Solution – Part I

Idaho’s problem with its healthcare system didn’t start with Obamacare; it started long before that. The insurance companies and medical groups — or as we call them, the medical mafia — have been sucking the life out of Idahoans for years, and no one has said much about it until the decision to institute a […]

Why Healthcare Sharing Companies Thrive with Obamacare’s Demise

Most Health Sharing Ministries have been around for a few decades and there are only six that we know of in the U.S. They must have existed and been in practice continually since December 31, 1999.

‘Trojan House’ Speaker Paul Ryan Presents ObamaCare Lite

President Trump is so eager to make a deal on the American Health Care Act (AHCA) that he can be too easily cajoled into believing what he wishes for is what we are getting without the advantage of closer inspection by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) or weighing the damage it will inflict on citizens […]

AHCA Failure: One Too Many ‘Lying’ Ryans & Way Too Many ‘Establishment’ RINOs

If pictures are worth a thousand words, this one truly is. Our well-intentioned new President has a lot to discover about trustworthiness in Washington DC. He must learn that many poker face leaders, advisors, and appointees whom he wants to believe in as swearing to their allegiance and patriotism are actually either naive, deluded or […]
