In the last five years, the number of workers with health insurance deductibles, as well as the size of those deductibles, have increased at a much faster rate than increases in workers' wages and general inflation, according to a new study released by the Kaiser Family Foundation on Tuesday.
Since the Affordable Care Act or "Obamacare" was signed into law in 2010, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation/Health Research & Educational Trust 2015 Employer Health Benefits Survey, both the growing number of workers with deductibles and the size of those deductibles have resulted in an overall 67 percent increase in health insurance deductibles for workers.
Meanwhile, the increase in single premiums has also been high but less than the deductibles spike, at a 24 percent growth rate. more >>
Presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., slammed Planned Parenthood Monday, accusing the nation's largest abortion provider of pushing women into abortions for the purpose of harvesting their babies' tissue for profit.
Rubio, who appeared on KCCI 8 in Des Moines, Iowa, spoke on a host of issues that included religious liberty, Iran, Kim Davis, immigration, and the current political landscape.
"Planned Parenthood has been exposed for the trafficking of human fetal tissue," declared Rubio, who asserted that Planned Parenthood needed a "thorough investigation" by the U.S. Justice Department and the Internal Revenue Service, something he said "is not happening now." more >>
Former Hewlett Packard CEO and Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina received an ovation during Thursday night's GOP presidential debate after she strongly denounced Planned Parenthood and implied that the Republicans in Congress should risk a government shutdown to force a presidential veto to spending legislation that wouldn't fund the abortion giant.
As the topic of whether or not Republicans in Congress should risk a government shutdown to defund Planned Parenthood was raised at the CNN debate at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California, Ohio Gov. John Kasich argued that it is pointless to attempt defunding Planned Parenthood through the continuing resolution, if President Barack Obama is just going to veto such legislation.
With the GOP in control of both the House and Senate, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Fiorina responded to Kasich's veto argument stating that conservatives should not back down from their opposition to Planned Parenthood's $500 million in annual federal funding just because Obama is sure to veto. more >>
An appeals court has ruled against the Department of Health and Human Services' accomodation to the birth control mandate for religious groups, arguing that it does not sufficiently protect religious liberty. The decision could mean that the case will go to the Supreme Court.
In a decision released Thursday, a three judge panel of the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that faith-based groups should not be required to sign a waiver for being exempted from providing assorted birth control methods in their insurance coverage.
Plaintiffs in the case included CNS Corporation, CNS international Ministries, Heartland Christian College, and Ozark National Life Insurance Company. more >>
