Liberals have suddenly discovered the benefits of federalism to ‘resist’ a Trump initiative, even as Republicans want to dictate to states how their insurance markets should function.
Repealing Obamacare’s insurance mandate alone focuses solely on pruning back the fruit of the poisonous tree, rather than attacking that poisonous tree’s roots.
When health insurers filed their rates for 2017, not a single state commissioner contemplated that the incoming presidential administration might cancel federal cost-sharing subsidies.
Six state attorneys general seek to force the Little Sisters to violate their consciences or pay millions in fines, all without having to face these religious caregivers in a court of law.
A new study suggests Medicaid provides inferior outcomes in the nation’s largest state, raising more questions about the program that represents the bulk of Obamacare’s coverage expansion.
Four Republican senators have blocked Obamacare repeal. These same senators’ low-income constituents are among those most hurt by Obamacare’s individual mandate tax.
Defenders of Roy Moore should reflect that in an era of crisis we’re going to have to fall back on the strength of our values, norms, and institutions.
Federal funding for abortions, higher insurance premiums for Americans, massive bailouts for fat-cat insurance companies—what’s not to love?

In the Center for American Progress’ view, any decline in exchange enrollment lies entirely at President Trump’s feet, but any increase in enrollment comes despite Trump.
Overall, insurers could receive a windfall of $4 to $5 billion from the Alexander-Murray subsidies spigot. That’s plenty more than the ‘specific benefit’ to taxpayers.
Conservatives should reject the premise that Congress must immediately open the federal piggy bank to replenish the unconstitutional subsidies the Trump administration cut off.
The process for handing health insurers billions of taxpayer dollars to backfill a sinking Obamacare rather than replace it is looking a lot like passing Obamacare itself.
