The accusation that Republicans really want to shove the inhabitants of pediatric cancer wards onto the streets to die is obscuring the health-care debate we need to have.
Coverage is the big problem with U.S. health care. People with coverage have little or no incentive to economize, so costs balloon out of control.
The left has been freaking out so long they can’t tell true from false. Take the headlines that the AHCA makes sexual assault a ‘pre-existing condition.’
Despite what you may have heard, ‘uninsurable’ people with pre-existing conditions are comparatively few, and it’s very hard to insure them no matter what mechanism Americans use.
Over the past 50 years, health policy has failed disastrously, making conditions worse only after spending billions of taxpayer dollars without adding anything to patient care.
For this healthy couple over 60 years old, there is no substantive difference between Obamacare and the AHCA. In many respects, we may be worse off financially.
Direct primary care offers in reality what our political class has thus far offered us only in theory: sane, reasonable, and affordable health care.
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.
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.
Universal health care could happen for every American in any number of ways that do not involve universal health insurance and all of the problems that it entails.
Republicans plan to cancel aspects of Obamacare that affect the federal budget, but if they leave the regulatory scheme intact, the result will be disaster.
Are conservatives willing to forego ‘victories’ from using power in a way that violates critical philosophical principles rooted in a belief in limited government?
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?
Politicians are more concerned with cutting health-care costs than they are with providing quality end-of-life care, says DC activist Leona Redmond: ‘’It’s really aimed at old black people. It really is.’
Bad habits, low exercise, poor hygiene, genetics—those are your largest risks, and health care has proven to be very ineffective at dealing with those risks.
Once again, we have another Obamacare success!
We cannot hope to have cheap, accessible health care unless we stop using health insurance as an automatic co-pay for every medical procedure possible.
The big health insurance companies who wrote, lobbied, and advertised for Obamacare are now holding insurance premiums hostage for more government bailouts.
Are Obamacare premiums going to go up? Don’t worry, it’s no big deal.
