Jason Hart of Watchdog.org keeps up his important coverage of Obamacare Medicaid expansion. He reports Ohio Medicaid’s September case load report shows that expansion enrollment has reached 401,307 – far outpacing the Kasich administration’s low-ball projections of 366,000 by July 2015. What does that mean in dollars in cents? Ohio’s Joint Medicaid Oversight Committee, which has been charged with the task of “bending the cost curve down” on Medicaid, put out estimates of costs per […]

Kasich told the AP that he did not think repeal was going to happen because “political or ideological” opposition does not “hold water” against “real improvements in peoples’ lives.” The AP thought Kasich meant opposition to Obamacare would not “hold water,” but Kasich’s staff claims the Governor meant opposition to Obamacare Medicaid expansion. The […]
The numbers aren’t looking good for Obamacare.

The election is coming up on November 4, and early voting in person at Board of Elections (824 Broadway) or by mail has begun. Please join Cincinnati East Tea Party, Women For Liberty and Anderson Tea Party in this “Meet The Candidate” event!
CINCINNATI EAST TEA PARTY MEET THE CANDIDATE NIGHT
When: October 21, 2014, 6:30pm social, 7:00 meeting
Where: Oakley Community Center,
3882 Paxton Avenue (In Hyde Park Plaza)
You will have an opportunity to meet four (4) of the eight (8) Republican-endorsed judges who are involved in competitive races in the November 4 election. I think you will be impressed at the high quality of this group of candidates. They will each speak and answer questions. It is critical to know the judges, because there is no party affiliation shown by their names on the ballot.
Our featured speaker is a familiar face, Tom Brinkman, Republican Candidate in the Ohio House 27th Legislative District. Tom will give us an overview of the major priorities likely to be addressed by the House in 2015. We are fortunate to have a man of Tom’s high integrity, strong conservative views and outstanding character on the ballot to represent us over the next two years. This meeting will give you an opportunity to get to know Tom better and to ask questions.
See you Tuesday night at 7 pm. Bring your friends and family!!
