C. Steven Tucker on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care
(Obamacare) on the Joe Walsh radio show 4/25/2013
"I've known Steve for almost four years, through two political
campaigns and my two years in the United States Congress. Over
that time I have probably heard Steve speak on Obamacare
hundreds of times, in front of audiences big and small, on
television and on the radio. His knowledge of the law is superb
and his ability to communicate aspects and implications of the
laws to any audience is unmatched. He has written extensively on
Obamacare and I have personally used much of his writing in my
work. He has also served as my informal health care Policy
Advisor while I was running for and serving as a member of
Congress. He and I have had more conversation than I can count
on Obamacare, Medicare, the health insurance industry, etc.
Quite simply I don't know of anyone who can analyze, critique,
and explain Obamacare as effectively as Steve Tucker. He would
be a valuable resource and commentator on the law in any setting
- TV, radio, or live public appearances. He is able to describe
the law to an academic and a man on the street. That's quite a
gift." - U.S. Congressman Joe Walsh
"After three years and thousands of
pages of legislation, very few of us truly understand the full
implications of ObamaCare for our families, our businesses, and
our country. The astonishing complexity and length of the law
makes it almost impossible to speak about without drifting off
into arcane medical and legal gibberish. Since the passage of
ObamaCare, I have had the extraordinary experience of knowing
and listening to C. Stephen Tucker as we've traveled together
and spoken at seemingly innumerable venues both political and
otherwise. With unequaled wit, a captivating speaking style and
a razor-sharp intelligence, Stephen translates what has become a
legal and economic Tower of Babel into straightforward language.
In doing so Stephen gives his audience the tolls to prepare for
what is in reality the greatest shift in American health care
since the days of Benjamin Rush. As a physician and health care
policy devotee, I cannot be more enthusiastic in recommending C.
Stephen Tucker as a speaker to anyone who desires an energetic,
immensely enjoyable, and truly informative experience. As the
weight of this massive law bears down upon us all, Stephen's
ability to provide guidance and insight will become increasingly
more important. There is no doubt in my mind that C. Steven
Tucker will play an increasingly pivotal role in the political
discourse yet to come and I for one couldn't be more excited!"
- Arie Friedman M.D.
"I have known Steve for
almost a year and have served on several healthcare panels with
him. To date I have not met anyone who possessed the same level
of knowledge regarding PPACA as Steve. He has the ability to
express himself in a manner that results in most people in the
audience fully understanding the issues at hand. The trait of
an outstanding teacher is one who can make the most difficult
topic understandable to ones audience. Steve possesses that
trait. If ever I need someone to speak on the topic of PPACA I
immediately think of him. The public is fortunate to have such
a qualified speaker as Steve to educate them regarding this most
important topic." - Bruce M. Bell, M.D.
"Steve Tucker is very knowledgeable and well versed regarding
the PPACA (Obamacare). I have heard him speak multiple times
and continue to be impressed with his knowledge base as well as
insights into effects of the law as well as alternative
solutions." - Mark Neerhof, M.D.
"I was thoroughly impressed with Steve's knowledge of the
effects/impact of the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act.
Steve spoke to the constituents of Illinois' 8th district
providing education at a level that made the program
understandable. I was impressed with his ability to breakdown
the program and present the facts as it pertains to the public.
It was a pleasure to listen and dialogue with someone who
understands the program. I doubt you will find someone anymore
knowledgeable on the PPACA then Steve." - Rich Ferollo,
"Steve is the most
integral, helpful, and aware Insurance
Agent you will ever meet. He will be
there to serve your needs and solve your
problems. You will be blown away ...
really. Steve is the model that all
professionals, in any service field,
should strive to emulate.”

"It's a pleasure to recommend the services of Steve Tucker. I am a practicing physician (general internal medicine) and was taking the medical insurance offered by my group (large, multi-specialty) since I joined them in 1985. It was good coverage and very convenient. It turns out the costs were relatively high even with the pre-tax payments. Last year my wife and I were directed to Steve Tucker by an old (more long-time and trusted than "old") friend of my wife. Steve was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning. We both found him congenial, patient, intelligent, very informative and responsive. We did find the medical insurance that suited our needs and did save money".
