Hart Versus Miller-Meeks

Nov 2, 2020

One of the key races in Iowa, and perhaps the nation, will be decided in southeastern Iowa. Republican Mariannette Miller-Meeks and Democrat Rita Hart are fighting for the open Second District seat in the US House now held by Democrat Dave Loebsack who's retiring after 14 years.

Joe Biden and Donald Trump may be the names on the election ballot this fall, but the real question for voters to decide is health care. That's according to former Iowa US Senator Tom Harkin, during a conference call with reporters Thursday afternoon. 

Time is running out for anyone who wants to enroll in Obama-care - the marketplace exhange for health insurance. Enrollment for next year began on November lst, and ends on Saturday (12/15).

For the fourth year in a row, November lst is the beginning of a very busy time for Jennifer Busch. She's a "navigator" for Genesis Health System, based in Davenport, who helps people sign up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.

Each Sunday, the Quad-City Times publishes "The Big Story," an in-depth report in the Sunday paper.

This week, Ed Tibbetts writes about the local impact of the Affordable Care Act.

Don't repeal the Affordable Care Act until you have a good replacement. That was the plea Thursday to Congress from members and supporters of an Iowa-based group, Families USA,  during a stop in Davenport.

Some local retirees will soon have to spend more for their health insurance. Monday night, the Moline School Board approved a 25 per cent increase in premiums.

Chief Financial Officer, Dave McDermott, says about 330 district retirees will be affected, starting July lst. And one of the major reasons for the increase is the Affordable Care Act. 

McDermott says the district is self-insured, and its insurance consultant has recommended the premium hike for retirees for the long-term health of the plan. Rates went up 15 per cent a year ago. 

The Project of the Quad Cities

It's the last chance to sign up for coverage through the health insurance Marketplace. Sunday is the deadline to receive insurance under the Affordable Care Act, and the Project of the Quad Cities is offering in-person counseling.
