The Supreme Court granted insurers nearly $12 billion in Obamacare bailout funds. It also allowed the executive to stick Congress with the bill for unconstitutional actions lawmakers never authorized.
This is not a government agency sharing risk, it’s a government agency assuming virtually all of the risk associated with the higher premium costs due to the rebate rule. In other words, a bailout.
To call the inclusion of a $11.5 billion proposal in the president’s budget that no one wants to take credit for a prime example of managerial incompetence would put it mildly.
The budget proposal means the Trump administration is now actively working to codify not one but two Obamacare bailouts that a Republican Congress denied to the Obama administration.
Did a Republican president who pledged to repeal Obamacare get elected to office in November—or not?
The incoming Trump administration will face a choice: Will it side with taxpayers, and prevent sending Obamacare bailout funds to insurers, or will it side with Donald Trump’s in-laws?
Because President Obama used executive overreach to implement so much of Obamacare, Donald Trump can begin dismantling it immediately upon taking office.
To say that Congress should have to write bailout checks to insurers as a result of President Obama’s lawbreaking quite literally adds injury to insult.
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.
It is much too soon for Obamacare proponents to say that the death spiral prediction is wrong. In fact, some states are signaling it’s started already.
RNC Chairman Reince Priebus says Republicans can’t “give lip service to the base” then ignore their priorities should the Senate go the GOP’s way.
A dark cloud looms behind the silver linings Obamacare’s remaining supporters continue to tout.
When you look at the math underlying Obamacare’s risk corridor program, it becomes clear that CBO’s $8 billion cost projection makes no sense at all.
