St. John's operates 10 clinics
U.S. Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, holding the mic, recently helped celebrate the second anniversary of the Obama administration’s affordable healthcare act in South Los Angeles at the St. John’s Well Child and Family Center. The facility was renovated with a $9.4 million federal grant.
St. John’s currently serves residents through 10 federally-qualified community- and school-based clinics. Solis noted that in the last two years, the expansion of the network of community clinics like St. John’s has created 19,000 new jobs.
In September, 2011, I wrote an Ourweekly article about Justice Clarence Thomas and his refusal to recuse (aka, excuse) himself from participating in the Supreme Court’s review of President Obama’s signature piece of legislation, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka, ObamaCare. It is a very major piece of legislation that previous presidents all the way back to Jimmy Carter have tried to get passed, but to no avail. It is also the centerpiece of Republican opposition to Mr. Obama’s re-election.
OK, it is official now—the United States Supreme Court is going to hear oral arguments in March on the continuing controversy and mixed federal court rulings regarding the Affordable Care law, aka, ObamaCare.
At least 26 states with Republican state attorneys general have filed suits against the legality of the law passed by Congress in March 2010. There have been rulings that have said the law is unconstitutional in whole or in part, and the majority of rulings saying the law is constitutional as is.
Virtually every sensible American who has paid attention knows it’s coming: the Supreme Court will have to take up the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the country’s new healthcare law, aka, ObamaCare, and it will probably do so sooner rather than later.
LOS ANGELES, Calif. — A group that wants the city of Los Angeles to form its own public health department submitted a petition today with 69,640 signatures in a bid to qualify a ballot measure asking voters if such a department should be formed.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health handles health services for 85 cities, including Los Angeles. Proponents of the ballot initiative said the county is too stretched to adequately respond to public health risks.
“Oh what a tangled web we weave ….”
The Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, is starting to rear its ugly head. Many of us think the concept is dangerous and costly. What is evolving is that it is the worst thing to ever happen to the U.S. economy. Right now this is clear: the federal government has taken over our healthcare industry. It has taken it over without any expertise or clear strategy. Almost daily new horrors are popping up. My brothers and sisters we are about to emulate Sweden and Canada. Socialized medicine is coming to America.
