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.
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.
DOJ’s action represented the right policy outcome, but in the wrong venue. Congress and not the courts has proper jurisdiction to strike down the structure of the law.
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.
Using repeal of the individual mandate to pass tax reform represents a game of Russian roulette that Congress should not even contemplate.
Sen. Ted Cruz’s proposal to allow insurers to sell non-Obamacare plans would turn the exchanges into high-risk pools for the old and sick. That might not be such a bad thing.
Throwing taxpayer money at skyrocketing premiums won’t solve the problem, and will instead just create another entitlement that health insurers will want to make permanent.
