Instead of promoting better policies, House Republican leaders would like to cave to socialized medicine in the most efficient manner possible.
Middle Class Capitalism isn’t anti-business. It isn’t even anti-big-business. The simple aim is greater competition, fair markets, and higher wages for the American people.
Why did people ‘wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half?’ Because of the pre-existing condition provisions in Obamacare.
A new Gallup poll confirms that Americans care more about rising health insurance premiums than coverage of pre-existing condition protections.
We don’t need to adopt socialist ‘health care is a human right’ talking points in order to have a better, more efficient, free market system.
Liberals who claim to support Obamacare’s pre-existing condition ‘protections’ don’t want to pay those higher premiums themselves. Imagine that.
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.
The most vulnerable Medicare beneficiaries—those enrolled because they receive disability benefits—often cannot obtain Medigap coverage due to pre-existing conditions.
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.
The sharp contrast between most Republicans’ Obamacare rhetoric and legislative actions show that they either do not understand federalism, or discard it when politically inconvenient.
Voters do like the idea of ‘protections for people with pre-existing conditions’ in the abstract. But when pressed, they express significant qualms about the trade-offs.
The plan would give states the flexibility to do what Bill Cassidy wants them to do, and only what Bill Cassidy wants them to do. That isn’t flexibility at all.
Despite our ridiculous current debate, you can save hundreds, even thousands, of dollars tomorrow, doing the same things you do with every other product you shop for.
Moderates want other senators to respect their states’ decisions on Medicaid expansion, but want to dictate to other senators how those senators’ states should regulate health insurance.
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.
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.
