Gov. Perry: federal health care law has failed

Sunday, 29 September 2013 08:38 Published in Local News

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) — Texas Governor Rick Perry says President Barack Obama's health care law is a failure and should be defunded, but he doesn't think shutting down the federal government is a good option.

Perry spoke Saturday to hundreds of people gathered for the Conservative Political Action Conference in suburban St. Louis.

He told the crowd that "the culture in Washington is broken" and touted efforts in Republican-led states to cut taxes and spur job creation.

Perry said the federal health care law has failed before enrollment even begins Tuesday in new online insurance marketplaces.

This past week, Texas Senator Ted Cruz led an unsuccessful filibuster to block funding for the health care law in the federal budget year that starts Tuesday.

Perry says he supports defunding the law but not closing government.

Advocates advise patience with Mo. health exchange

Sunday, 29 September 2013 08:36 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri residents can begin enrolling Tuesday for health coverage offered through a new online insurance marketplace. But some supporters of the initiative are advising people to wait a while.

The health insurance exchanges are a key part of the 2010 Affordable Care Act signed by President Barack Obama. Though enrollment starts Tuesday, people can wait until December 15th to sign up and still be included when the insurance coverage starts January 1st.

The Missouri Foundation for Health is one of the many nonprofit groups spreading the word about the new insurance options. Foundation vice president Ryan Barker says there likely will be glitches when the website launches. He encourages people to check out the site, do some research and take some time to think about it before enrolling.

Thousands head to Nebraska for vintage Chevy auction

Saturday, 28 September 2013 10:29 Published in National News

PIERCE, Neb. (AP) — Car buffs from across the world have converged on a small northeast Nebraska town for the first day of a vintage Chevrolet auction, which includes about 50 with fewer than 20 miles on their odometers.

Bidding for the highest-profile vehicles was expected to begin around 11:30 a.m. Saturday in a field just west of Pierce. An estimated 10,000 people were expected to attend the weekend event.

The collection belonged to Ray Lambrecht and his wife, who ran the Lambrecht Chevrolet dealership from 1946 until their retirement in 1996.

Lambrecht rarely sold cars or pickups that were more than a year old.

While most dealers lowered prices to move inventory, Lambrecht assumed the older cars would appreciate over time, so he stashed them in warehouses, at his farm and other spots
