Latta Statement on Obamacare Premium Hikes

Federal regulators announced substantial premium increases for people purchasing health insurance on Healthcare.gov. …………….

WASHINGTON, D.C.  – Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) issued the following statement after Federal regulators announced substantial premium increases for people purchasing health insurance on Healthcare.gov.

 

“It’s very evident that promise after promise made by Obamacare proponents have not been kept. However, it’s hard to find as damaging a falsehood as what the public was told about the cost of their health care. While many said that premiums for the typical American family would decrease — some said by as much $2,500 a year — we’ve instead seen premiums skyrocket year after year. Even worse, the recent announcement that premiums will increase by 25% on Healthcare.gov show that the problem is getting exponentially worse.

 

“While many of these problems were predicted by opponents of the law, it’s still no solace to Ohio families that are being harmed. Problems like premium hikes, higher deductibles, and the loss of health care plans are putting people in financial binds. It’s crystal clear that this law is unworkable and needs to be replaced with patient-centered health care, as outlined by the Better Way plan put forward by House Republicans.”

House Republican’s Better Way Health Care Plan is available here.

We Can Do Better

Pastor Ralph J. Mineo
When we’re full of ourselves, we’re unable to see the needs in others.

Pastor Ralph J. Mineo

I recently saw a story on the evening news. A young school student asked his mother to pack two lunches for him because there was a classmate who didn’t have his own lunch. Several parents talked about the situation, took up a collection, paying off all the student cafeteria debts and made sure that, from then on, no child would go hungry at lunch.

The story is heart-warming because the student saw a need and decided to be generous. But, to me, it’s deeper than that. The student saw someone different, even of a different social status, and became a servant rather than what seems to be more common attitudes in today’s world: finger-pointing, bullying, even ridicule.

St. Paul not only preached the word of God, he lived it. He became a servant of others (after being converted from being a bully and an executioner). In his new role, he invited the church to imitate him. He didn’t say that to get praise. Though it might sound like it, Paul wasn’t being “full of himself.” He said it to convert people to the ways of Christ.

In fact, in his letter to the Philippians (Chapter 2), he said it even better: “Your attitude should be that of Christ.” Christ Jesus, who was equal to God, “emptied himself” to become a human being, an obedient servant, emptying his life for us in death, death on the cross.

When we’re full of ourselves, we’re unable to see the needs in others. We don’t have a desire to tend to the needs of others. We deny the truth that we can do better.

The truth is, we CAN do better! It’s a lot of trouble to take the message and teachings of Jesus. It’s a burden to “take up our cross” and follow Jesus. But there’s nothing more fulfilling and satisfying than living this faith!

The parents in the news story were inspired by the action of the young man. They were so inspired that they were moved to action. We need more of such actions and imitations. Truth is, God provides daily opportunities for us to imitate Christ. The choice we have is to embrace those opportunities, or turn our backs on God.

Imagine what would happen if everyone would begin the day with a simple prayer “Lord Jesus, let your attitude become my attitude.” Our world would be turned upside down (in a divine way!) if everyone would give daily time and energy to live that prayer.

Let’s avoid being full of ourselves. Let’s be full of divine grace, divine love, Christ himself!

Toni Lynn Brian, 57, B. G.

After a challenging journey through this world, on Monday, October 24, 2016 at 5:55 p.m. what would have been her father’s 87th birthday, Toni Brian, 57, of Bowling Green, went home to be with the Lord and her loved ones who have gone before her.

After a challenging journey through this world, on Monday, October 24, 2016 at 5:55 p.m. what would have been her father’s 87th birthday, Toni Brian, 57, of Bowling Green, went home to be with the Lord and her loved ones who have gone before her.

She was born on March 2, 1959, to the late Robert and Marilyn (Siferd) Brian. She married Larry Jablonski and they were divorced. She is the precious sister of: David (Judy) Herrmann of Marysville, Julie (Jim) Arnold of Reynoldsburg, Bobbi Payne of Findlay, Tina (Bill) Combs of North Baltimore, Deb (Carlos) Alva of North Baltimore, Rob (Shelley) Brian of North Baltimore and Mike (Jen) Brian of Bowling Green. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews whom she adored and loved dearly.

Toni was a kind and compassionate person who as her last gift of selflessness gave of herself one last time to be an organ and tissue donor. Toni enjoyed a simple life filled with family, friends and pets too numerous to name. She enjoyed playing board games with anyone who would sit still and her absolute favorite was Yahtzee. She would often unwind by watching some of her old family favorites on TV like The Waltons or Little House on the Prairie or simply by sitting down to color some of her favorite pictures. Her passing will leave another immense void in this family tree.

A funeral service will be held at 1:00 p.m., Thursday, October 27, 2016, at SMITH-CRATES FUNERAL HOME, North Baltimore. Burial will be in New Maplewood Cemetery, North Baltimore. Visitation will be held 2 hours (11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.) prior to the service Thursday at SMITH-CRATES FUNERAL HOME.

Memorial contributions may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and/or Wood County Humane Society. Online condolences may be made at www.smithcrates.com.
