The Warren Rotary Club’s Student of the Month for February is Austin Brenner. Austin was a 3 year Letterman and the Captain on the Warren High School Football team. He loves the outdoors and hunts and fishes. He is a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and has participated on volunteer opportunities including The Pittsburgh Project where volunteers help needy families with home repairs. After High School he is planning on attending Penn State, majoring in Pre-Med Biology. He then hopes to continue his studies and become an Orthodontist.
February 8, was our strategic planning session. We went through seven issues that we feel are critical to the long-term success of our club.
We put together a game plan to address each of the critical issues and Bill Wagner will be putting together a recap for the club to review,
President and CEO Richard Seager of Journey Health System was our speaker. He gave his unbiased talk about the healthcare priorities of the new administration.
Here is what they want to change:
- Complete repeal of Obamacare
- Modify laws that inhibit the sale of health insurance against state lines
- Individual deductions for health insurance premiums
- Create HSA’s, Tax-free contributions and inheritable and transferrable asset
It is looking like there will be a “transition” period as not to create hardship or disruption. Repeal without replacement would leave 20 million Americans without health insurance coverage.
Some other things they hope to accomplish:
- Medicaid block grant to state
- Liability reform
- Public transparency on prices
