Readers of Right Michigan are probably keenly aware of George Heartwell’s flagrant disregard for state law and the 2nd Amendment.
The city of Grand Rapids (and now the City of Jackson as well) is getting taken to task in the Western District (the Jackson case is being handled in the Eastern District) for promoting policies, customs, and ordinances that are illegal under state statute (MCL 123.1101 – 123.1105).
The unfortunate thing about this is that unlike TCAPS, the taxpayers are probably going to be on the hook.
There seems to be an unending stream of hospital budget shortfalls lately.
The ACA, Medicaid expansion, and the changes in insurance status has messed up the way hospitals are getting paid. What seemed to be the promise of getting paid more regularly from the indigent, has resulted in fewer dollars for medical facilities from all classes as the ACA kicks in more fully.
Lansing’s legislators who sold their souls during the Medicaid expansion trick are already learning of the failure (job losses, hospital staff reductions, false savings) that they enacted in Michigan by embracing the Obamacare mandate. Unheeded warnings by activists, REAL economists, and a history of failure by government resulted in a number of Representatives, and Senators expanding welfare through healthcare, and accepting a few shekels from the most tyrannical US federal bureaucracy ever.
And now its time for them to pay the piper, and AFP has started its reminder campaign.
