Point: Pro-business stance is ‘shortsighted’

The desired end doesn’t justify the means here.


Commentary

Chris Smith
In May 2009, Sen. Glenn Coffee and fellow legislators announced the passing of a comprehensive lawsuit reform package. Everyone lauded its passage. Why then are Republicans back again with more legislation on the same issue?

What a boob


CFN

Gazette staff
CFN is as much a fan of an ample bosom as anyone, but evidently, a recently resigned employee in the press office of state Insurance Commissioner John Doak is a serious boob on the subject — at least judging by an otherwise-innocuous missive issued last week about a tornado preparedness summit.

Road hazards

Would stiffer penalties result in more insured motorists?


News

C.G. Niebank
The next time you drive to work, the supermarket, or the nearest mall, look at the cars, trucks and minivans around you, and consider this: There’s a good chance that in an accident with one of those vehicles, you’ll get stuck paying the entire bill for damages to your own car or truck.

Oklahoma and Medicaid expansion


Commentary


For the nearly 700,000 Oklahomans currently without health insurance coverage, the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent landmark ruling upholding the bulk of the Affordable Care Act offers hope. The court did, however, strike down one key component of the law by making the expansion of Medicaid, the shared federal-state health insurance program for the poor, optional rather than mandatory.

Oklahoma needs the Affordable Care Act


Commentary

Craig W. Jones
Many people know that Medicaid was passed alongside Medicare as part of the 1965 Social Security Act. But I would wager that very few Oklahomans know that Oklahoma was one of only six states to be the first to participate in Medicaid when it launched in 1966. Oklahoma was the only Southern state among those six. Another 27 states signed on later that year, 11 more in 1967, and another eight states (all Southern) in 1970. Seems the new social program at the time was a bit controversial.
