Sen. Lamar Alexander’s article includes several omissions and outright false statements about his bailout legislation. Here are the facts Alexander wouldn’t dare admit about his bill.
A new study suggests Medicaid provides inferior outcomes in the nation’s largest state, raising more questions about the program that represents the bulk of Obamacare’s coverage expansion.
The idea that allowing people to keep more of their money represents the ‘worst bill in… history’ tells people all they need to know about the current Democratic Party.
