The GOP has a chance to begin reforming health care by undoing Obamacare. Can they really afford to pass up this opportunity?
On June 22, Senate leadership released a discussion draft of their Obamacare ‘repeal-and-replace’ bill, the Better Care Reconciliation Act. Here’s a detailed summary.
Senators have floated a lengthy phase-out of the enhanced federal match associated with Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion. That likely dooms any real Medicaid restraint.
Obamacare provides states with a greater incentive to expand Medicaid to able-bodied adults than to cover services for individuals with disabilities.
The CBO’s report on Republicans’ Obamacare revamp revealed its inherent bias towards liberal cost-saving solutions rather than conservative ones.
The Consortium of Citizens with Disabilities not only did not object to the way Obamacare discriminates against individuals with disabilities, it wanted to expand that discrimination.
While there are major reasons to doubt the CBO estimate, it assures the House-passed version of the American Health Care Act will never become law.
Only free-market reforms are likely to simultaneously offer Americans improved health, affordable coverage, accessible health care, and fiscal responsibility.
Twenty percent of the working-age public is now on government health insurance, the highest percentage for that age group since Medicaid began.
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.
Breaking down what happened with these two Trump legislative successes—Obamacare revision and the budget omnibus—illustrates what we should expect from the coming years.
Could Obamacare be behind the strange, unexplained increase in American mortality rates? It’s hard to know for sure, but some evidence suggests it.
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.
If we insist on spending this staggering amount of money, we could spend it in a way that actually provides health care for the many Americans who supposedly desperately need it.
