NRCC - Higher Premiums, Limited Access: What Other Surprises Are In Store?

As Grim Consequences Emerge from Healthcare Takeover, New Hampshire Voters Wonder: Does Carol Shea-Porter Even Know What’s In the Bill? 


Washington- Democrats like Carol Shea-Porter have been working furiously to convince voters that their healthcare takeover was not the disaster it appeared to be, but a mounting body of evidence is proving what the American people have known all along. To make matters worse, it looks like Shea-Porter didn’t even read the bill at all – unless she meant to strip herself and her staff of their existing healthcare coverage.


That’s right, a provision uncovered weeks after the bill passed reveals that Shea-Porter may have forced her own staff to lose their healthcare coverage. The New York Times raises an important question: If Shea-Porter didn’t know about this, did she have any idea what she was forcing upon the American people when she signed off on her party’s trillion-dollar healthcare takeover?

“In a new report, the Congressional Research Service says the law may have significant unintended consequences for the ‘personal health insurance coverage’ of senators, representatives and their staff members.

“For example, it says, the law may ‘remove members of Congress and Congressional staff’ from their current coverage, in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, before any alternatives are available.

“The confusion raises the inevitable question: If they did not know exactly what they were doing to themselves, did lawmakers who wrote and passed the bill fully grasp the details of how it would influence the lives of other Americans?” (Robert Pear, “Baffled by Health Plan? So Are Some Lawmakers,” New York Times, 4/12/10) 

Unfortunately for New Hampshire taxpayers, that’s the easy answer. The alternative is much more disturbing: Shea-Porter rubber-stamped her party’s healthcare agenda even though she knew it would fall woefully short of its promises:

“Public outrage over double-digit rate hikes for health insurance may have helped push President Obama's healthcare overhaul across the finish line, but the new law does not give regulators the power to block similar increases in the future.

“And now, with some major companies already moving to boost premiums and others poised to follow suit, millions of Americans may feel an unexpected jolt in the pocketbook.” (Noam Levey, “Healthcare Overhaul Won’t Stop Premium Increases,” Los Angeles Times, 4/13/10)


And the broken promises don’t end at higher costs. With new pressures on the country’s healthcare system, a growing doctor shortage means that Americans will have a tougher time getting the care they need:


“Experts warn there won't be enough doctors to treat the millions of people newly insured under the law. At current graduation and training rates, the nation could face a shortage of as many as 150,000 doctors in the next 15 years, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges.”


“A shortage of primary-care and other physicians could mean more-limited access to health care and longer wait times for patients.” (Suzanne Sataline and Shirley S. Wang, “Medical Schools Can’t Keep Up,” Wall Street Journal, 4/12/10)


“The evidence is piling up and none of it looks good for Carol Shea-Porter,” said NRCC Communications Director Ken Spain. “New Hampshire families were looking for lower healthcare costs and better access, but Democrats gave them the exact opposite. Did Shea-Porter knowingly rubber-stamp a bill that drives up premiums and limits access to doctors, or did she simply not bother to read legislation that could affect every American and cost taxpayers a trillion dollars? Either way, it’s yet another sign that New Hampshire families need a real representative in Washington rather than someone who blindly signs off on the radical Obama-Pelosi agenda without being honest about the consequences.”


ALG Letter to Senate Foreign Relations Committee Urges Rejection of Aponte for Ambassador

"It is critical to the security of the United States that potential loyalty risks do not escape scrutiny by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee when they are nominated, especially for high posts such as ambassador."—ALG President Bill Wilson

April 13th, 2010, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today urged the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to reject the nomination of Mari Del Carmen Aponte for the post of Ambassador to El Salvador.

The committee will be considering Aponte's nomination in a hearing at 2:15PM.

In Wilson's letter to the committee, he wrote, "Aponte's nomination is permanently tainted by her 1990's close, personal relationship with a man whom U.S. counterintelligence considered a Cuban DGI agent, according to a confidential intelligence memo that was obtained by Insight magazine." 

The letter continues, "Aponte's failure to cooperate with a 1994 FBI investigation into the allegations, and her refusal to participate in a polygraph test after some of the answers to FBI questions showed minor inconsistencies serve as automatic disqualifiers for this nominee."    

An Insight on the News story detailed Aponte's alleged recruitment by the Cuban spy agency, including receiving a loan which was never paid back that originated from Cuban sources.  According to the a confidential intelligence memo delivered to Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Jesse Helms and obtained by Insight, "When the FBI questioned her about her involvement with Cuban intelligence, she reportedly refused to cooperate, saying that since she was not seeking a permanent White House position she was not subject to a background check."

After she failed to take a lie detector test in 1994, Aponte withdrew herself from consideration of Ambassador to the Dominican Republic after committee questions about her suitability continued.

Yesterday Wilson had said Aponte is "unsuitable to represent the United States in El Salvador or anywhere else in the world.  Aponte's subsequent resume also casts considerable questions about where her loyalties lie, and she should be rejected by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee," said Wilson.

From 2001 to 2004, Aponte served as the Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Federal Affairs Administration. In this cabinet-level role, she represented the governor of Puerto Rico in the United States, where she, on at least one occasion, referred to Puerto Rico as a "country," and her office issued at least one press release calling her office in D.C. an "embassy."

In his letter Wilson stated, "While [Aponte's] allegiance toward an independent Puerto Rico is part of the legitimate political discussion on the island, this allegiance combined with her previous unresolved ties to the Cuban spy agency show that she cannot be trusted to serve the interests of the United States." 

In a statement, Wilson concluded, "It is critical to the security of the United States that potential loyalty risks do not escape scrutiny by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee when they are nominated, especially for high posts such as ambassador."
