The repeal of Obamacare and West Virginia

Effects and possible solutions

How would repealing Obamacare affect West Virginia?

Here are the key findings from the West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy report released earlier this week:

– At least 184,000 West Virginians could lose health insurance coverage, many of whom are working in low-wage jobs such as food services.

The Intelligencer weighs in on the miner health and pension bill

We can't blame McConnell, he's a Republican!

From the conclusion of this morning's Intelligencer editorial:

That is politics at its worst. It appears the only way the mine retirees will get the immediate assistance is for lawmakers to go along with the McConnell plan or something like it. That being the situation, those resisting the idea will deserve all the blame if . . .

Be careful what you wish and vote for, Shelley (with update)

Suddenly Senator Capito cares about what might happen if Republicans end Obamacare

Here is what I about wrote about Capito's position on Obamacare in 2014 when she was running for the U.S. Senate:

House Republicans, including Capito, have voted to end Obamacare at least 54 times. Earlier this year at her West Liberty University-sponsored political rally, she asserted that "everybody is unhappy" . . .

Documenting the locals' anti-Clinton agenda 16

More hypocrisy from the Wheeling "newspapers"

Yesterday, I documented how local Ohio Congressman Bill Johnson has changed his mind on the Trans-Pacific Partnership and yet the locals' front-page article about his views on trade said nothing about it. Today, both local "newspapers" featured a similar front-page story, "West Virginia Lawmakers Oppose Trade Deal," . . .

Covering Monday's energy innovation conference

It's a good day for local favorites McKinley and Capito (even if she wasn't there)

Covering the conference -- the Intelligencer and the Associated Press saw it differently

Casey Junkins, local reporter and energy propagandist, covered the conference for the local "newspapers." Jonathan Matisse, who reports on West Virginia for the Associated Press, wrote the AP story.

New West Virginia poll results

The political results of the latest Metro News poll of likely West Virginia voters were released yesterday and today. In the race for president: Trump got 49% to Clinton's 31% with Libertarian Johnson getting 10% and Green Stein receiving 4%. (West Virginians, according to the poll's director, are enthusiastic for Trump.)

More on Capito, in-the-know West Virginians, and "the war on affordable electricity"

That didn't take long -- one day to be precise (see the last paragraph of the previous post). This morning's Intelligencer editorial is back to praising West Virginians for being smarter than everyone else and for fighting the good fight on the use of coal:

West Virginians were reminded Tuesday night of why, when it . . .
