The GOP’s American Health Care Act, like Obamacare, does nothing to address the core drivers of health-care hyperinflation. Unless those issues are addressed, costs will continue to escalate.
Instead of passing legislation that some may vote for, but few truly support, House leadership would be wiser to focus on enacting a bill that members can both vote for and support.
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.
House staff are re-writing their legislation to correct a major flaw in its structure: giving people a new entitlement for health insurance will cause millions to drop employer insurance.
Republicans in Congress shouldn’t tie themselves in knots trying to ‘replace’ Obamacare. If some states want to keep it, they can pay for it themselves.
This interplay among the base of new insureds, the spending and tax baselines, and the beliefs of the conservative base will define the House Republican alternative to Obamacare.
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.
This morning, the Department of Health and Human Services released a rule proposing several changes to Obamacare insurance offerings.

Why is conventional opinion so quick to assume that the American people lack the imagination and initiative to get creative if insurance schemes get scrambled overnight?
To succeed in their attempts to repeal and replace Obamacare—and avoid a midterm drubbing—Republicans must correct the terms of the debate, soon and without wonkiness.
I’m paying for an insurance plan that doesn’t cover the doctors I need to see—and I end up paying for most costs out of pocket anyway. And there’s no way out.
Apparently Harry Reid forgot to heed Hillary Clinton’s warning about fake news, because the idea that thousands of people die from lack of health insurance is preposterous.
There are many reasons conservatives should not remain fixated on the number of people with health insurance when designing an Obamacare alternative.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the media has thus far viewed the debate on an Obamacare replacement entirely through one liberal policy frame: How many people have health insurance cards.
There is a little-noticed flaw in seeking to vindicate Obamacare by focusing on those with pre-existing conditions. It’s called ‘health insurance does not equal health care.’
If the Obamacare exchange plans are so good, why haven’t liberal elites purchased one?
My 96-percent increase in premiums is a useful, unvarnished look at Obamacare’s effects.
