In 2009, the FDA looked the other way on a menthol ban. Now, they’re reconsidering it. Here’s a primer on two potential policy issues at play.
Obamacare uprooted the entire market to address a comparatively small universe of truly uninsurable patients. A better reform would use a more specialized approach.
Moderates assumed that ‘replacing’ Obamacare meant Republican lawmakers had embraced the mantra of universal health coverage, and would maintain most of the benefits.
The left and media assume if you don’t support Obamacare, then you cannot want to protect individuals with pre-existing conditions. False.
The Trump administration is finally making headway on something that should have happened years ago: defined-contribution health insurance.
Trump doesn’t understand that his recent comments do a disservice to retirees and anyone else with savings––like the ones who voted for him.
If the ‘purpose of this regulation’ is to affect pharmaceutical pricing, then confining disclosures only to television advertisements would by definition have a limited impact.
Unfortunately, hordes of reporters don’t much cover the person who saves well and makes a fortune bit-by-bit, as opposed to the lottery winner who wins big through sheer luck.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should be reminded that two wrongs don’t make a right.
The most vulnerable Medicare beneficiaries—those enrolled because they receive disability benefits—often cannot obtain Medigap coverage due to pre-existing conditions.
If Republicans are going to start delivering on their promises, why don’t they deliver on one from the last four election cycles, by eliminating the law that has raised premiums for millions?
As with Alex Trebek the quiz show host, Trebek the moderator should seek to blend himself into the background, rather than seeking even more power to make a spectacle of himself:
Since Democrats have attempted to hype Obamacare’s pre-existing condition provisions, premium increases would remind voters those supposed ‘protections’ come with a very real cost.
Obamacare’s crony capitalism—allowing hospitals to grow their operations in exchange for political endorsements—continues to contribute to higher premiums.
A reporter from Politico attempted to add ‘context’ to health-care-related comments the president made at a political rally in Las Vegas. Like Trump, he omitted plenty of key information.
Louisiana’s group of citizen-sailors banded together on their own initiative to help their neighbors, without any official government involvement. And they’re doing it again.
‘Gag clauses,’ inserted by pharmaceutical benefit managers, prohibit pharmacies from telling people that they might benefit from paying in cash rather than using their insurance card.
An analysis found that 63 percent of health care-related tweets from a Russian-backed agitprop organization opposed Obamacare efforts last year.
Suffice it to say that had Serena Williams been playing at her usual level—the level she expected herself to play—events would not have escalated on Saturday.
Gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum supports Bernie Sanders’ health plan. That bill would end Medicare for seniors, which will fly like an anvil in senior-dominated Florida.
