House Republican staff want to resurrect this spring’s failed Obamacare bailout, and see the health savings account provisions as a way to do so.
Some conservatives are unwilling to accept the status quo. They are pushing back against congressional inertia and conservative fatalism as they urge Congress to roll back the Obamacare regime.
The plan includes parameters for a state-based block grant that would combine funds from Obamacare’s insurance subsidies and its Medicaid expansion into one pot of money.
Despite these organizations’ own statements opposing these costly requirements, the plan from Heritage and others would leave them in place, hamstringing states.
These requirements would undermine the bill’s supposed goal of ‘state flexibility,’ and could lead to a regime more onerous and expensive than Obamacare itself.
Striking down the law through legal fiat would represent judicial activism at its worst—asking unelected judges to do what elected members of Congress took great pains to avoid.
A relatively small provision included in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, passed in December 2017, gives President Trump the ability to achieve what his party has failed to accomplish.
Rather than criticizing Tom Price for his candid comments, Republicans would do better to go back and pass legislation repealing the Obamacare regulations.
At the end of 2016, I thought Paul Ryan had a plan, and that achieving consensus on a plan would prove the tough part. But Ryan didn’t even have a plan.
If the only state-based insurance reform plan proposed to date violates Graham-Cassidy, then how much ‘flexibility’ does the legislation really provide?
Republicans seem insistent on doing anything but solving the ultimate problem with Obamacare: strangling states’ and individuals’ power to manage their own health care.
Congress has more tools at its disposal to repeal Obamacare’s regulatory morass than commonly believed.
Senators Susan Collins and Lamar Alexander are apparently engaging in a bidding war over how many billions of taxpayer dollars to spend on corporate welfare to insurance companies.
Senate Republicans should not worsen the spectacle of rationalizing bad policy by attempting to render seven years of arguments they made to the pro-life community meaningless.
Four Republican senators have blocked Obamacare repeal. These same senators’ low-income constituents are among those most hurt by Obamacare’s individual mandate tax.
With Republicans in charge of Congress and the White House, will they allow a massive Obamacare tax on health insurance plans to hit Americans next year?
Press reports suggest the administration is preparing to revoke Obama administration regulations sharply limiting the sale of short-term health insurance plans.
Jindal has the health policy chops to undermine and roll back much of Obamacare—using the vast administrative powers the law gives HHS.
If Republicans truly believe Obamacare has harmed America, there is no upside in fake bipartisanship. Not for the GOP. And not for the America people.
