Dallas Health Insurance stays intact for millions of Americans after court rules

Rick Thornton, a health insurance agent in Dallas, says decision not to act eliminates threat of lost coverage for millions of Americans had the Affordable Care Act been wiped out.

Dallas, United States - February 15, 2020 /PressCable/ —

Dallas health insurance and the future of the Affordable Care Act earned a huge victory recently when the appeals court in New Orleans recently decided not to review its previous ruling that found a key piece of the ACA unconstitutional. The vote was 8-6 in favor of doing nothing, which means — at least for the time being — everything remains the same and millions of Americans won’t have to worry about loss of critical healthcare coverage. The fight could still end up in the hands of the nation’s highest court, though that might not happen before the 2020 election.

The reason the appeals court had to say something was based on backlash over a previous ruling that eliminated the penalty for individuals who did not buy health insurance Dallas. Blue state lawmakers are pressing to not only lift the appeal but have all legal battles ended in favor of the ACA. Conversely, red states have long said that eliminating the mandate is not the issue and that the entire Affordable Care Act is not good for America and should be dismantled.

Rick Thornton, a health insurance agent in Dallas, was quick to point out that five of the six judges who favored a review of the previous ruling were appointed by blue states. All eight who voted against the review were appointed by red state presidents. He added that the reason why so many government officials want to spring into action with a ruling is twofold. Annual national spending is on pace to hit $6 trillion because of the costs for Medicare and private insurance — even as American use less care. On top of that, millions more Americans don’t have health insurance compared to several years ago, and millions more who do have it can’t afford basic medication and services. There is also the fact that the average life expectancy has decreased sharply over the last three years.

Xi meets Lam in 'vote of confidence' over Hong Kong protests

Feb 28, 2020

HONG KONG — Chinese President Xi Jinping's surprise meeting with Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam was a "vote of confidence" in her government's ability to tackle five months of anti-government protests that have rocked the semi-autonomous Chinese territory, a senior official said Tuesday. Xi met Lam on the sidelines of a trade event in Shanghai on Monday night amid signals from China's central government that it may tighten its grip on Hong Kong to quell the unrest that has at times challenged Chinese rule. When asked if the meeting reflected Xi's worry about Lam's handling of the unrest, Hong Kong...
