Monterey, CA Senator Ryan To Revive Plans To Repeal Health Care Reform (the Affordable Care Act) and Change

Medi-Cal and Social Security : View From A Private Duty Caregiver Serving Carmel, Carmel Valley, Gilroy, Gonzalez, Greenfield, Hollister, King City, Marina, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Pebble Beach, Salinas, San Juan Bautista, Seaside And Soledad California Congress is back in session but, unfortunately, there are few signs that a budget compromise is on the way. The players have changed, but the ideology has not. Senator Patty Murray (Democrat, Washington) and Representative Paul Ryan (Republican, Wisconsin) are the heads of the two budget committees which will be charged with getting one set of legislation together than can pass both the House and the Senate. Rep. Ryan's budget contains no new tax increases, no Pentagon cuts and would make dramatic changes to Medicare and Medicaid which would wipe out the Federal deficit in 10 years. The GOP plan would reduce future spending by $5 trillion over 10 years without raising taxes, and slow growth in spending by 3.4% to 4.9%. Senator Murrays' plan would increase taxes on upper-income households and corporations and make modest spending cuts to domestic programs. One of the biggest battles will likely be fought over Ryan's Medicare and Medicaid proposals. The latter entails giving a block grant to the states, which could place more of the financial burden of Medicaid (Medi-Cal in California), back on the states. Many Governors have already vigorously opposed this plan. As far as Medicare goes, many baby boomers will be opposed to the plan that they be given a subsidy rather than have their medical bills paid by the government. In such a system, there would be no guarantee that the subsidy would keep up with the escalating medical bills, which could leave seniors in a financial pickle after their working days are over. Another hot issue will be Ryan's proposal to repeal President Barack Obama's health care reform (the Affordable Care Act). Although this is unlikely to get any traction, it will certainly make the headlines and cause a lot more bickering in Washington D.C. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324096404578352283403877270.html About Richard Kuehn & Family inHome Caregiving: After more than a decade of caregiving, both in a professional environment and for a 97 year old family member I was dissatisfied with service from local caregiving agencies. I became convinced of the need for a service which provides very personal assistance to elderly and founded Family inHome Caregiving serving the Monterey Peninsula.
