Obamacare has resulted in an increase in the use of emergency rooms in California, the study found — not a decrease, as promised.
One would never know this from reading The New York Times, but Gov. Paul LePage’s refusal to expand Medicaid in Maine is firmly correlated with at least 500 fewer deaths in that state.
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.
For all critics’ carping about how short-term coverage epitomizes ‘junk insurance,’ these plans will provide another option for individuals who find Obamacare-compliant policies unattractive.
