Health care-A right not a privelege

Congress passes hotly contested bill

Congressional Democrats preBT]cX]T[FaXcTa vailed in passing sweeping legislation in provide greater health care coverage for Americans. The battle was primarily divided along party lines with all Republicans voting against the bill and a majority of Democrats voting for it. On Tuesday, the president was set to sign the bill into the law of the land. Still to come this week is further legislation to change some of the provisions of the bill making it more agreeable among senate and house Democrats. Senate Republicans have announced their intention to do everything in their power to block what is know as a reconciliation measure that has been used 22 times previously, although Republicans say never on a piece of legislation of this magnitude. While the U.S. Senate had passed the bill earlier, again along party lines with 60 Democrat and Independent senators voting in favor and all Republican senators voting against the measure, it had to be approved by the U.S. House of Representatives, which it was Sunday night by a narrow margin. 219 representatives voted in favor with 212 against. Some of those against were Democrats, including Heath Shuler, who represents our 11th Congressional District. While it is difficult to determine just how much support the bill had in this district, it had wide-spread support among the district’s Democrats. A few days prior to the vote, Democratic county chairmen across the district sent a letter to Shuler urging him to support the bill’s passage. In a press release on Monday, Shuler said he had K]]@=9DL@HY_]09

Fresh out of college and freshly unemployed. The current job void takes it’s toll on everyone, but the greatest repercussions are being felt by the eighteen to twenty somethings who are trying to establish themselves in a new career. The current US unemployment rate for people ages 16-24 is 18.4%. In North Carolina that rate hovers around 9%. Cherokee County is estimated at 8.7%, Clay County is estimated at 6.9%, and Graham County is estimated 8.5%. Over the course of a year the unemployment figures have become progressively worse, and young people are being forced to seek employment in Jobs that are well beneath their qualifications. This in itself is not necessarily a bad thing, because at this particular juncture in our society - any job is a good job. However,

the effects of being “stuck� in a lower job can be detrimental to future career opportunities. Employers often view these individuals as damaged goods with squashed ambitions, and when jobs do open up they tend to hire workers with more experience. With a high percentage of youth unable to grab on to the first rung of the ladder, we are potentially creating what researchers have called a “lost generation.� Young people bring a certain zest to the workplace, and sadly, it’s disappearing

?

at an alarming rate. With youth comes creativity, imagination, and aspiration. Young people are a key ingredient to the progression of a business - if a company had employees all retiring at the same time, who would carry the torch? Taking that a step further - who would help fund that retirement? Baby boomers on the verge of exiting the workplace are depending on young people with good careers to help fund their retirement.

NC has county on tight string County candidates briefed on budget and tax matters

In a briefing for Cherokee County BT]cX]T[FaXcTa candidates for seats on the board of commissioners last week, County Manager David Badger provided an overview of the county’s fiscal situation as well as the extent of financial authority granted to local government by the state legislature. Candidates were provided with a detailed breakdown of the current county’s budget by departments as well as an assessment of how the budget is playing out. Regarding revenues the only significant drop from what was projected in the budget comes from sales tax. In that category, the county took in $228,000 fewer dollars than projected for the last six months, according to finance officer Bill Block. He said that drop in revenues was made up somewhat by a higher than anticipated collection of property taxes, which has allowed the county’s budget to remain pretty much on track. Block said the county’s reserve balance is not quite up there to where it ought to be, but it is still very much ahead of the state’s requirement. North Carolina requires counties to maintain a minimum of 8 percent of its budget in the fund balance to offset irregular collection periods and unusual emergencies. Cherokee County’s fund balance is currently at 16.35 percent; however, it would ideally be at around 20 percent, according to Block. Cherokee County’s tax milage rate remains at 38.5 mils per hundred dollars of property assessment for the current fiscal year, the same as last year.That means that for property assessed at $100,000, an owner would be taxed $385. Cherokee County’s rate is at 60.6 percent of the average rate of all North Carolina counties. The rate is also below that of Clay County (43 mills) and Graham County (58 mills). Regarding taxing authority of the county board, Block said there is little leeway allowed by North Carolina legislature to the counties. The state gives them limited powers, he said. Commissioners do not have many revenue options.

Commissioner Candidates Get Bearings Shuler’s statement ,c$ ,\cKX 2_QRO] 4SXc^a

For Commissioner Candidates, getting to know how Cherokee County operates can be a very arduous task. There is no standard organization structure for county governments, and every county in the United States has it’s own way of operating. No doubt Cherokee County officials had this in mind when they called the 2010 Cherokee County Commissioner candidates together for an orientation session last Thursday evening. Candidates from all three districts were in attendance for the meeting, including: Steve Gerstman, Johnathan Dickey, Curtis Brown, Barry Clark Curtis, W. David Sumpter III, Lawrence E. McNabb, Lorraine M. Meltz, and David Wood. County Manager David Badger conducted the orientation. Badger, remarking on the importance of the orientation said: “It’s a good opportunity for Candidates to get ac-

quainted with how our government operates. We want to make sure that they are completely aware of all parameters and guidelines for County Commissioners.� He went on to say, “The goal is to provide consistent information pertaining to budgets, taxes, and legislation.� The candidates were each given a binder full of Cherokee County information which covered a variety of topics including: General Statutes for Local Governing Boards, Legislative Goals, The Budget and Fiscal Control Act, Cherokee County Budget, Cherokee County Revenue and Expenditures, Property Tax Laws and Tax Rate Survey, and the Cherokee County Financial Statements. Although the orientation is not mandatory, it is advantageous for the candidates to familiarize themselves with the processes and protocols of county government. In doing this, the candidates can be well educated on the day to day functions of the job. In the business world, job orientation is crucial to an

Lectins, naturally occurring chemicals in plants, are proving to be an area of intense study by scientists because of their ability to halt the chain of reaction that leads to a variety of infections. In laboratory tests, BanLec, the lectin found in bananas, was as potent as two current anti-HIV drugs. Researchers say its health implications are great because it may become a less expensive new component of applied vaginal microbicides. “HIV is still rampant in the U.S. and the explosion in poorer countries continues to be a bad problem because of tremendous human suffering and the cost of treating it,� says study senior author David Marvovitz, M.D., professor of internal medicine at the U-M Medical School.

On Friday the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as receiver taking action to protect depositors. The FDIC entered into a purchase and assumption agreement with Community & Southern Bank. The bank reopened on Monday under its new ownership. Depositors continue to be insured by the FDIC. Customers should continue

to use their existing branch until they receive notice from Community & Southern Bank that it has completed systems changes. As of December 31, 2009, Appalachian Community Bank had approximately $1.01 billion in total assets and $917.6 million in total deposits. Community & Southern Bank is to pay the FDIC a premium of one percent to assume al of the deposits of Appalachian Community Bank. In addition to assuming al of the deposits of the failed bank, Community & Southern Bank agreed to purchase essentially all of the bank’s assets. FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) will be $419.3 million. Community & Southern Bank’s acquisition of all the deposits was the “least costly� resolution for

the FDIC’s DIF compared to all alternatives, according to its press release. Appalachian Community Bank is the 34th FDIC-insured institution

Elena Vergaro, from the University of Genoa, Italy, worked with a team of researchers from the Italian Institute of Technology, Genoa, to develop the robotic aid. When asked about the early findings of the ‘Braccio di Ferro’ (Iron arm) she says, “Our preliminary results from this small group of patients suggest that the scheme is robust and promotes a statistically significant improvement in performance. Future large-scale controlled clinical trials should confirm that robot-assisted physiotherapy can allow functional achievements in activities of daily life.� As patients work to guide the robotic arm into a figure-of-eight motion using the device’s controls they would assist patients in re-learning how to use their arms. Vergaro says, “Stroke survivors perform arm movements in abnormal ways, for example by elevating the shoulder in order to lift the arm, or leaning forward with the torso instead of extending the elbow.� Researchers and therapists believe employing incorrect patterns may limit a patient’s ability to achieve higher levels of movement ability, and can also lead to repetitive use injuries. Vergaro says, “By demonstrating the correct movements, a robot can help the motor system of the subject learn to replicate the desired trajectory by experience.�

The agency researched incident reports from the past 20 years and found at least 14 deaths related to the products, in which babies are carried in a sling draped across a parent or caregiver.Twelve of the deaths involved babies younger than 4 months. Three of these deaths happened in 2009, the CPSC said in a statement. The agency identified two suffocation hazards associated with the slings. First, it said babies can't control their heads because of weak neck muscles. The sling's fabric can press against the baby's nose and mouth, blocking his or her breathing and suffocation can happen within one or two minutes. The slings can also keep babies curled in a position with their chin toward the chest. This can restrict breathing, and the baby will not be able to cry for help. The CPSC warned in particular about babies who were either low-birth weight twins, were born premature or who had breathing issues.

Brown said in a podcast released Friday that the government wants to make banks and credit car firms to be more responsible and to be fair to their customers. Among the provisions of the new rules would be to change how repayments are allocated to card debt, a right to reject interest rate hikes and a prohibition on automatic credit limit increase. Brown said the new regulations aim to discourage Britons from borrowing beyond the capacity to pay. He said companies that would break the new law would be penalized heavily, including revocation of their license. Brown said in a statement, “We want not only to empower and protect you as consumers, but also to make banks and credit card companies behave responsibly and act fairly. And so we will re-write the rules on lending to end the sharp practices which sting so many credit card holders.�

Unemployment rises across NC Statewide unemployment insurance claims total $4,945,424,072.00

Unemployment rates increased in 99 of North Carolina’s 100 counties in January, according to statistics released by the state’s Employment Security Commission. Lee County remained the same at 14.6 percent. Cherokee County increased from 15.5 percent to a staggering 17 percent. The ESC began to pay on the Tier IV extension of benefits to over 40,000 claimants this week. This tier of benefits will help provide up to six more weeks of unemployment insurance benefits. “The current economy continues to influence nearly every major job sector, mainly in Manufacturing

and Construction,� said ESC Chairman Lynn Holmes. “In our local employment offices, we see, as well, the impact on our citizens. The action by Congress to extend the Emergency Unemployment Compensation Program and the latest implementation of benefits will assist thousands more as they continue to look for work.� North Carolina had 41 counties which were at or below the state’s unadjusted unemployment rate of 11.8 percent. Rates increased in all 14 of the state’s Metropolitan Statistical Areas. Total county employment (not-sea-

sonally adjusted) decreased in January by 7,077 workers, to 3,990,829. Notseasonally adjusted unemployment increased, by 41,831 workers. The unemployment total in January was 532,279 workers, compared with 490,448 in December.

Somewhere in the Middle Tough Questions

,c$ :K_VK -KX_Z

2^[d\]Xbc Think only poor people worry about the lack of health insurance? Think again. I once had a student who suffered from a congenital heart defect that required major surgery. Her mom had the same defect and was operated on the year before. The family’s insurance company covered both surgeries – and then cancelled their policy. How would you like to look for insurance with preexisting conditions like that? For several months, this family with four children had NO insurance at all. They were not poor. He is a lawyer, and they were able to provide their children with private schooling. However, another major operation would have been devastating to their finances. After much searching, they were finally able to find a policy; I’m sure they paid and arm and a leg for it. Now I don’t often find myself feeling sorry for lawyers, but this was a very nice family who found themselves in a bad situation through no fault of their own. They had not made poor choices nor practiced an unhealthy lifestyle. The heart defects were just plain bad luck, something that could happen to any of us. Knowing someone in this situation caused me to ask myself some very difficult questions, questions I think we all need to ask. What if this family had not been able to find insurance? Or what if they were not able to afford the high premiums? If they continued to have these heart problems, how would they pay for it? Should they be forced to drain all their accounts and sell off their assets, perhaps declaring bankruptcy at some point, in an effort to pay the hospital and doctor bills? It doesn’t seem fair, but the only other alternative is for you and I to pay. Are we willing to do that? Is that fair? This real-life situation seems to indicate the need for healthcare reform

of some kind. In fact, polls show that most Americans believe the healthcare system is broken and needs some type of reform. There is even bipartisan agreement that preexisting conditions should be covered by insurance. That sounds good, and maybe it is good, but let’s be sure we think this through and realize all the ramifications up front. Insurance companies are for-profit businesses. They work by letting us pool our money and share the risk of any one of us having a major medical expense in a given year. If most of us are young and healthy, the risk of that is low, and the insurance companies get to keep more of the money. If a higher percentage of the policy holders are old and/or sick, however, the risk of any one of them having a major expense increases substantially. The insurance company will have to pay out more to doctors and hospitals. Now we all know what any business does when its costs go up – they pass that cost on to their customers by raising the price of the goods and services they provide. We can safely conclude that if insurance companies are required by law to cover preexisting conditions, our insurance premiums will go up – as sure as the sun will come up in the morning. Somewhere in the Middle By: Paula Canup Guest Columnist Obama claims to have solved that problem by requiring ALL Americans to buy healthcare insurance. Supposedly, that would bring millions of healthy young people into the pool, diluting the risk and spreading it among more people. Hopefully, that would balance out the higher cost of covering those with preexisting conditions, and it would not be necessary for insurance companies to raise their rates. It should be noted, however, that the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) estimates that under the current healthcare legislation, insurance premiums would still increase from 10 – 13% for individuals

buying policies. Without mandatory insurance, we can safely assume the increase would be much higher. As for my student and others in her situation – are we willing to pay higher insurance premiums so they can get coverage? Then there is the difficulty of forcing people with low incomes to buy insurance – they can’t. Obama has solved this problem by offering government supplements to cover what they can’t afford. Nice.There is just one problem the government HAS NO MONEY! What it does have is a 12 1⠄2 trillion dollar debt and a projected, recordhigh 1.5 trillion dollar deficit for 2010. So it seems reasonable to ask before we pass any type of costly healthcare reform, just how are we going to pay for it? Obviously, there are only two ways – cut spending somewhere else or raise taxes. Neither of these alternatives is popular with the people who elect the politicians who make these decisions. Generally speaking, Democrats say “raise taxes� while the Republicans say “cut spending.� Then the Republicans attack the “tax-and-spend� Democrats, and the Democrats attack the “heartless� Republicans, and nothing ever gets done. We just sink deeper into debt. So back to my student, who is hypothetically uninsured and facing more operations. Who pays? One option is to let the family spend down all its assets until they become eligible for Medicaid, which means we, the taxpayers, will end up paying part of the cost at some point. Another alternative is to force the insurance company to cover her which means they will raise the cost of premiums on everyone else. Again, we will end up paying for it. Finally, we can just have the government cover her and everyone else in a singlepayer system like they have in Canada. Yes, we will pay for that in the form of higher taxes. Hmmm.... I think I see a pattern here.

From the desk of Heath Shuler Boosting Charitable Contributions for Earthquake Relief in Haiti and Chile

Last week, the House voted help earthquake victims in Haiti and Chile by approving legislation that provides immediate tax benefits to Americans who make charitable contributions.  When we see the effects of tremendous tragedies like those that took place in Chile and Haiti, most of us are compelled to help.  This legislation helps Americans in their efforts to help others.  The bill, which I voted in support of and which passed with overwhelming bipartisan support in the House, allows Americans to take deductions on their 2009 tax return for donations made to relief efforts in 2010.   Since the earthquakes in Haiti on January 12th and on February 27th in Chile, American families have poured support toward charities and organizations working on recovery and assistance to those two countries.  While donations from Americans for Haiti have exceeded $1 billion, donations for Chile have been more sluggish.  The quake experienced in Chile was one of the largest in recorded history (gauged at 8.8 on the Richter scale).  As a result, roughly 500 lives have been lost, 2 million have been displaced or wounded, and more than 500,000 homes have been destroyed.  The earthquake in Haiti led to the deaths of approximately 230,000 people, and displaced 1.3 million people from their homes.    Americans are probably the most giving and charitable people on earth, even during these tough economic times.  The timing of the earthquakes in Haiti and Chile occurred in such close proximity that it has been hard for families to give as much as they would like.  This bill makes it easier for people to give and will hopefully lead to more life-saving aid getting to those affected by these natural tragedies. Helping Organizations like Habitat for Humanity In December, I introduced a bill to ensure that reputable nonprofits such as Habitat for Humanity are protected

from federal licensing requirements that threaten to impact the ability of needy families to get affordable homes.  North Carolina is fortunate and blessed to have 85 local Habitat for Humanity affiliates which built or repaired 427 houses in 2009 alone.   Last week, our North Carolina Senators Kay Hagan and Richard Burr introduced companion legislation in the Senate.     Organizations like Habitat for Humanity partner with struggling Americans to provide them with an opportunity to become responsible homeowners.   Because of this unique partnership, foreclosure and default rates on Habitat for Humanity loans are currently and consistently well below national rates.   I am encouraged by the strong bipartisan support for this bill that this legislation has received on the House side, and am glad to see that the entire North Carolina delegation in the House and Senate are working together to ensure that qualified organizations like Habitat for Humanity can continue their important work. My bill, the Nonprofit Mortgage Licensing Clarification Act, has strong bipartisan support in the House.  It currently has the support of more than 85 co-sponsors from both sides of the aisle including the entire North Carolina delegation: Representatives G.K. Butterfield, Howard Coble, Bob Etheridge, Virginia Foxx, Walter Jones, Larry Kissell, Mike McIntyre, Sue Myrick, Mel Watt, Brad Miller, Patrick McHenry, and David Price.   Health Care at Home  I also had an opportunity this past week to speak to the American Association for Homecare (AA Homecare) legislative conference taking place in Washington, DC.  The North Carolina Society for Respiratory Care gave me a Certificate of Appreciation for “excellence and leadership in health care and for championing better care for pulmonary patients and their Respiratory Therapist caregivers.�  

From authoring a letter to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to chairing hearings in his Subcommittee on Rural Development, Entrepreneurship and Trade, I have helped advocate For the past several years on behalf of durable medical equipment suppliers and those who work to improve the care of millions of Americans who require medical care in their homes.  The supplies distributed by the durable medical equipment industry ensure that thousands of seniors throughout North Carolina and the country are able to continue living in their homes instead of residential healthcare facilities away from their families.   Coming up  This week, the House is almost certainly going to launch into even more intense healthcare debate.  As you know, I voted against the first health care bill because I was concerned that the legislation did not do enough to promote prevention and wellness and did not bend the cost curve, as well as other concerns.  I remain committed to making sure those issues are resolved.  In the legislation currently being discussed, a number of important provisions, such as the issues of abortion funding and cost, are still up in the air and I want to see those resolved.  I do not support the reconciliation process of pushing health care through.  I will always prefer and advocate for bipartisan methods of creating and enacting legislation.  I thank everyone who has called and written my office with your thoughts on healthcare.   Please continue to stay in touch about this matter and any other issues that are important to you. Additionally, this week, my Asheville office is moving to a new location.  Hopefully, the new space will allow us to better serve and communicate with you.  The new address is 205 College Street, St. 100, Asheville, 28801.  The phone number and fax will remain the same.

2^[d\]Xbc So much for President Obama and the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Liberalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Democratsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;promise to read over and analyze bills before they are voted on. The Obama administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief actuary (Richard S. Foster) at the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare services (CMS) notified Congressional leaders Saturday that theâ&#x20AC;? very tight time frameâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;complexityâ&#x20AC;? of the Democrats health spending bill would prevent them from fully analyzing the costs and efficacy of the bill before the House votes on the legislation. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Liberalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Democrats do not care. This is about the naked takeover of power over the lives of American citizens. The federal takeover of health care will consume approximately 1/6 of our national economy. Combined with spending at all levels, government will now control close to 50% of total national production. Federal bureaucrats will tell us which services you are allowed to receive.

There is nothing compassionate about placing the control of health care in the hands of government bureaucrats. Our current health care system, despite its flaws, is still the best in the world. As most of us know, it continues to draw patients from other advanced countries that have suffered by adopting the government run model. President Obama brazenly lied when he said that the Republicans had not presented a health care plan. They had given him a plan with these four basic principles. 1) Equalize the tax treatment of people paying for health care by ending the current discrimination against those who do not get health insurance from their jobs. In other words, everyone paying for health care should receive the same tax benefits. 2) High-risk insurance pools should be established so that people with preexisting conditions can obtain coverage that is not prohibitively expensive. 3) Allow people to purchase health

insurance across state lines just as they do for car insurance and other goods and services. In other words allow competition. 4) Establish transparency in terms of costs and quality of health care. ByPass surgery can cost from $4,700 to $100,000. Unless we can compare prices and quality of service, the costs of health care will continue to skyrocket. Only competition can drive down health care costs. Only by voting out of office the elected representatives who voted for this government takeover of our private lives will we be able to start to unravel the severe damage done by reckless government spending over the past six years. And just for the record, for the last three years the Democrats have had control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate, when the majority of the deficit spending bills have taken place.

0]SaTfbEP[[Th8]XcXPcXeT a\PRRaTP/eTaXi^]]Tc CLIMATEGATE -A huge controversy about the questionable methods used by some to prove global warming. Added to this the coldest winter in many years, and there is an underwater tremor that is threatening the climate change movement with a tsunami. Is global warming a fact? Honestly, most of us don't really know. Have we scientifically examined the evidence to be able to answer that question? Do we have access to the data in order to verify it? Are we really different from the scientists on both sides who twisted the data to prove their beliefs? It is human nature to remember the facts that support our beliefs while we ignore evidence that proves otherwise. We jump to conclusions. But we cannot afford to leave this

to human nature. The fact is there are many other reasons to be green. Fact: We are damaging our planet. Fact: We cannot keep building energy hog buildings because of rising energy costs. Our economy cannot afford this. Fact: We need sources of energy and materials that cost less, are closer to us, and cause less damage to the planet. Honestly, that is what the green movement is about. Are you spending a lot of money to heat and cool your building(s)? Then fix that, not because you want to prevent global warming, but because you want to save money, and help our community keep the power company from raising its rates as fast, and reduce the amount of coal smoke that pollutes our mountains. Fix it to get a tax credit and because you are using the tax credit to give your local contractor a needed job. Are you selling a green product or service? Don't sell it based on global warming. Use reasons that appeal to many more people. Show your customers how your product can save them money, help them be healthier, or preserve our beautiful mountains. Yes, some of the leaders in the global warming movement are guilty of operating it like a corrupt religion, lying, bullying, even threatening to burn opposers at the stake of public opinion. So have some of the opposers. Shame. As

with the banking industry meltdown, the innocent will all pay for this -this time with much higher energy costs. But we have many good reasons to change the way we live. We can leave climategate to the media while we make green changes in our own lives that save us money, improve our standard of living, and preserve our beautiful mountains. Where to start: Local states are using the stimulus money to offer rebates on Energy Star appliances. Georgia is offering rebates while funds last. (They estimate until June 1). North Carolina is offering 15% rebates during Earthweek, April 22-25. You might also qualify for tax credits and other rebates. Go to energystar.gov and click on â&#x20AC;&#x153;rebate finder.â&#x20AC;? Fill in your zip code and check which type of appliance you are considering. Click the button to locate rebates. You will see a list of government and manufacturer rebates offered to your area. Why not go down to your local appliance dealer and spend some of this stimulus and corporate money? Keep your neighborhood business going and reduce your electric bill. Now that's green! Richard C. MacCrea is the director of The Greening of Andrews Valley, a program of Andrews Valley Initiative. He works in the field of energy efficient, green building.

â&#x20AC;˘ Continued from page 1A received thousands of letters, phone calls and e-mails from his constituents. He said it had become clear to him that a majority in the district were in support of health care reform but did not think this bill was the right solution. He said he voted against the bill because he thought congress could do better. On Monday, I talked with Clay Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Health Department Director, Janice Patterson to get her take on the new bill as she understood it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it is a wonderful thing,â&#x20AC;? Patterson said. Saying she had been in nursing for more than 30 years, she said the provision which would forbid insurance companies from denying coverage of people with pre-existing conditions is very much needed.

BWd[Ta) â&#x20AC;˘ Continued from page 1A do not think that this bill is the right solution.   I voted against the bill because I felt that we could do better. Now that it has passed and will become law, I look forward to working with my colleagues to address specific areas that need improvement.  I assure you that I will continue to work as hard as I can to fix our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care system in a fiscally responsible and compassionate way.  Certain aspects of this bill are beneficial and necessary.  I support eliminating the authority insurance companies currently have to cancel coverage when an individual falls ill or to exclude altogether those with preexisting conditions.  I also support the measure that allows young adults to remain on their parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; insurance until the age of 26.   While I support some provisions, I am concerned about how other parts of this bill will affect families, small businesses and our economy.  One of the most significant cost savings of this legislation is a colossal $500 billion in cuts to Medicare, which millions of seniors across the country and 147,000 seniors in Western North Carolina rely upon for their health care coverage. If there is a half-a-trillion dollars worth of savings to be found in Medicare, we should utilize it to stabilize this already insolvent program rather than to create a new entitlement that will certainly

â&#x20AC;&#x153;None of us choose to be sick or unhealthy,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a shame when children are born with a medical condition, and their parents canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get insurance for them unless they are wealthy.â&#x20AC;? Patterson said she is also in favor of the prevention portion of the bill, which encourages testing and screening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is important to catch things early,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So they can be treated early. Now the portal of entry form many people who do not have insurance is the emergency room, which throws a heavy burden on hospitals.â&#x20AC;? Patterson said she thinks it will be important to provide education to train more doctors and mid- level medical providers: nurses, physician assistants, so people will have improved access for medical help. She said as she understood the bill that it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the perfect solution and will have to be improved upon as time goes by. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At least, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a start,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think we need to think what is good for everybody, not just for those of us who have the means to provide for our own health care.â&#x20AC;?

face the same sustainability challenges.  I cannot in good conscience vote to expand current entitlements or create new ones without ensuring that the proper mechanisms are in place to meet our current obligations of $38 trillion in Medicare benefits over the next 75 years.   This legislation also places a sizable burden on our small businesses through mandates that will require small businesses to purchase health insurance for their employees or face fines of up to $2,000 per employee.    Furthermore, much of the $500 billion in new taxes created to pay for this bill will be put on the backs of our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already-struggling small business owners.  This bill should have done more to rein in the insurance industry.  It does not do enough to prevent rate hikes and permits insurance companies to evade competition through the same anti-trust exemptions that they enjoy today.  Additionally, because the legislation guarantees that millions more consumers will have to buy insurance, we are literally pumping money into the very companies that have helped create the problems we are trying to solve, while getting little in return.   To truly reduce our spending on health care we must target reform toward the root cause of the skyrocketing costs.  This legislation fails to address the reality of what creates cost â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sickness.  This legislation does not do enough to promote accountable care, the idea that health care providers should be rewarded for keeping patients healthy and out of the doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office.    This bill fails to address the way that we provide health care in this

Tri-County Area Gains New Family Practice Physician

She said really when you think about it most of us are just a day away from finding ourselves in a catastrophic situation if we discover a medical condition that requires expensive medical treatment. Among other provisions of the bill, there is a provision to extend insurance coverage of children on their parents policy until they reach the age of 26. The bill will require all persons to have insurance so as to provide a larger pool of people including healthy ones to support the cost of those who require medical care. However, that provision of the bill will no come into effect until 2014, when there is expected to be a greater number of doctors and medical personnel trained to proved for increased services. Medical payroll tax on wages will also be increased for those individual taxpayers with earnings of more than $200,000 and for married couples filing jointly whose earnings are greater than $250,000. country; it merely adds more people to a broken, inefficient, and wasteful system.   In Washington, this debate has become more about winning or losing a political battle than promoting sound and effective policy.  Last year, a number of Republican lawmakers made their intentions clear with the statement, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to stop Obama on this, it will be his Waterloo. It will break him.â&#x20AC;?  I find this politically motivated, obstructionist position offensive and detrimental to Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future.  I also believe that the Democrats would have been better served by enacting common-sense incremental change rather than pushing through a huge bill that mushroomed into something flawed and unwieldy.  The belief that we have a moral obligation to help those who are less fortunate encapsulates why I am a Democrat, however itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time that we start working together and put America above our political party affiliations.    This was a very difficult decision, but in the end I could not support this legislation as it currently is written. I evaluated all available information, listened to the people of Western North Carolina, and prayed about this vote.  I know that many of you disagree with my decision, but I did what I believe was right for Western North Carolina and our country.  As your Congressman, you can always be confident in my unwavering commitment to our community and this great nation.  I remain committed to finding solutions to our broken system and will continue to do so for as long as I represent you in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Dr. Glendon Rougeou Joins Murphy Group Practice

Area residents now have more options in choosing locally based health care with the recent addition of Glendon P. Rougeou, MD, to the staff of Murphy Group Practice. Dr. Rougeou, a Board Certified Family Medicine Practitioner, has extensive experience

CWT]bT]SXcc^ RWTa^ZTT/f]RbT]cX]T[]Tc

in outpatient family medicine, having spent the last two years of his residency in Urgent Care in addition to his post- residency experience in a private practice affiliated with Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in North Wilkesboro, NC. Dr. Rougeou received his undergraduate and Doctor of Medicine degrees from Louisiana State University in Shreveport, Louisiana. He completed both his internship and residency at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Lincoln, Nebraska. Following his residency, he joined Wilkes Family Medicine in North Wilkesboro, NC. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dr. Rougeou is a tremendous asset to both Murphy Medical Center and the community as a whole,â&#x20AC;? stated

Mike Stevenson, CEO of Murphy Medical Center, which owns Murphy Group Practice. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This area needs more physicians, and we are very excited to have him join our facility.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very pleased to be here,â&#x20AC;&#x153; Dr. Rougeou said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have heard so many good things about the area, and look forward to meeting the members of my new community.â&#x20AC;? Dr. Rougeouâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office is located in the new Urgent Care Center / Murphy Group Practice facility located at 183 Ledford Street in the big log cabin on the corner of Highway 74 and Ledford Street, east of the intersection of Highways 74 and 64. Dr. Rougeou is currently accepting new patients of all ages, and may be reached at 828-8374712.

As it turns out, Dr, Brianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father had owned a pub in Boston, and, somewhat to be expected, he tended bar during medical school. Newly transplanted and missing the celebration he had known back in Boston, he, George, and ten others decided to give Boston a run for its money. In the beginning, the celebration took place at what was then the Oak Barrel, moving later to a real estate office, then on to the Cherokee Hills Golf Course.  For the past few years the L&N train station has been the site for this friend and family celebration. In all, its been thirty years of a fun for the two friends--and their friends. How many  Murphy residents re-

member the parade of a few years ago? Well, no parade this year. However, this past March 17th's celebration was perfectly complete with Clogging, jigging, singing, joke-telling and a Pot Luck Dinner.  In addition to these acts, the audience was treated to a bit of sppon playing and one of the wee folk (who must have been seven feet tall!) found his way out of a huge paper bag!   What Irish celebration would be complete without food? On the long tables down the center of the depot sat hefty amounts of corned beef, cabbage, potatoes and brown bread (as well as typical American fare) provided by the folks who came to help Brian and George turn the L&N train depot into

Up with the Irish in Murphy

In a town with a name like Murphy full of those descended from the Irish who immigrated and settled in these Appalachian mountain, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d expect to find a heck of a celebration on March 17th.  And youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d not be disappointed if you were friends with Dr. Brian Mitchell and his friend, George Heilner a local resident and Psychologist with Meridian. The whole thing started when Dr. Brian, who hails from Boston, came to Murphy in the mid-seventies to open a medical practice.  Dr, Brian missed the wearing of the green on March seventeen and wanted to continue his celebration of St. Pactrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day in his new hometown of Murphy.

a little bit of Ireland. Inspired by the Irish tradition of Ceilidh, (Gaelic for a family celebration), the growing group of friends have created the same atmosphere youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d find in a pub in Ireland. Young and old alike danced, ate, drank and sang.  Not necessarily in that order! And, just like in Ireland, every shade of green could be found on the party goersâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;as well as whimsical head gear and  Irish plaid. I even thought I saw spied a man in a kilt. A delightful group of young people on break from N. C. State line danced to an Alan Jackson song; the Morris dancers from Brasstown again amazed the folks with their sticks, raggedy costumes and choreographed routine; Julie Schreibner and The Garland Dancers, beautifully  dressed  in their costumes, delighted the audience of friends seated against the walls of the old depot. "Take Me back To Muhlenberg County," sung by Bob Lekites, had the audience singing along. LeKites wife, Sue had just done a hilarious bit of a tongue twister taught to her as a child by a favorite uncle.  In addition, Ben Kennedy, handsomely attired in a fisherman sweater and Irish cap, treated the audience to Irish humor and a traditional Irish song, "The Mountains of Mourne,"  Later, Jo Kilmer clogged to the clapping audience and Dekota and Brian thrilled everyone by dancing a jig. In short, it was an amazing celebration, one guaranteed to give Dr. Brian a de je vu of the good old days in Boston, and the others with Irish names--as well as those who are Irish for one day-- a feeling that they were on the Emerald Isle.
