Absent additional action, Washington DC residents may face sizable tax penalties due to a website mess caused entirely by District officials.
If the plan, which would hike federal spending $100-120 billion over the next decade, overcomes a ‘furious’ internal debate, it may face an even tougher reception outside the White House.
President Trump can talk all he wants about Obamacare imploding, but so long as the federal government props tens of billions of dollars into the exchanges, it probably won’t happen.
The only thing that keeps Obamacare from collapsing completely is that taxpayers are paying most or all of the premiums for the vast majority of people in the exchanges.
The idea pushed by the Center for American Progress, that the Trumpcare high-risk pools will be crushed by demand far outstripping their supply, is not based on fact.
While insurers claim ‘uncertainty’ compels them to threaten pulling from exchanges or higher premiums, in reality the cause is their gross incompetence and crass politics.
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.
Could Obamacare be behind the strange, unexplained increase in American mortality rates? It’s hard to know for sure, but some evidence suggests it.
Wealthy Obamacare supporters won’t give up a few thousand dollars to enroll on the exchanges they tout. Aren’t liberals the ones who believe in social solidarity and ‘paying your fair share’?
There is a little-noticed flaw in seeking to vindicate Obamacare by focusing on those with pre-existing conditions. It’s called ‘health insurance does not equal health care.’
Is there any accountability in American politics for being completely wrong? Certainly not for the liberal defenders of Obamacare.
After the election, the Republicans will have a chance to effectively finish off Obamacare. They should take it.
Whether government runs all of health care is less material than whether government pays for all of health care. The latter will lead to the former.
UnitedHealthcare’s exit from Obamacare exchanges is not just a sign of the system’s economic problems, it may also force more Americans to pay for elective abortions or be fined.
The Obama administration is spending taxpayer dollars Congress never approved on cost-sharing subsidies to insurance companies.
Poorer people don’t just get subsidies to help buy insurance on the Obamacare exchanges. They actually get better insurance.
Unlike private insurance company Anthem, federal health-care exchanges won’t even notify customers if hackers get their sensitive information.
New reports suggest many people gaining coverage on Obamacare exchanges are not actually eligible.
The White House has every reason to hide the percentage of people who’ve paid for Obamacare if it’s bad. They’d trumpet the figure if it was good.
