When push comes to shove, few liberals can justify their support for per capita caps on Medicare, but opposition to similar caps in Medicaid.
Because Michael Hiltzik had ‘never heard anything about’ Ohio dumping disabled people from Medicaid thanks to Obamacare’s expansion, he concluded it must be bogus. It’s not.
The overhaul being contemplated in Washington could give states flexibility to modernize Medicaid and provide better care to patients, which could end up saving taxpayers money.
Throwing taxpayer money at skyrocketing premiums won’t solve the problem, and will instead just create another entitlement that health insurers will want to make permanent.
If an outright repeal of the ‘Cadillac tax’ receives more than 60 votes in the Senate the legislation likely would increase the federal deficit in the long term.

Obamacare defenders think insurance is just ‘sharing,’ as if all they need to know they learned in kindergarten and the field of economics didn’t exist.

This is a detailed summary of the bill, along with a number of possible conservative concerns where applicable.
Going down the same failed Obamacare approach of more taxes and more spending will not lower health costs. And lower costs is what Republicans should prioritize.
