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.
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.
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.
Parents Magazine’s article on the AHCA misinforms readers about the potential effects of the legislation and the state of health care today.

Instead of passing legislation that some may vote for, but few truly support, House leadership would be wiser to focus on enacting a bill that members can both vote for and support.
Obamacare defenders think insurance is just ‘sharing,’ as if all they need to know they learned in kindergarten and the field of economics didn’t exist.
