Democrats’ Budget Plan Hides a Slow-Moving Healthcare Takeover

Progressives just got one step closer to their dream of socialized health care.

High-Priced California is About to Get Even More Expensive

I’ve been back in the office full-time for nearly three months now, but I still can’t get over how pricey everything has become. The chicken salad at the burger stand in our office building is $12.75.  Add a Diet Pepsi ($2.75) and the tab becomes $15.50, add tax ($1.55) and ...

Hold the Applause, Biden Shouldn’t Take an Obamacare Victory Lap

President Joe Biden has finally figured out how to get Americans onto the Obamacare exchanges — by paying them. The administration recently congratulated itself after 2.5 million Americans signed up for plans through the government-run marketplaces during a newly created Special Enrollment Period that closed August 15.

Democrats $3.5 Trillion Budget Leaves the Health Care Sector as Broken as Ever

One of the most striking aspects of the $3.5 trillion budget resolution proposed last week by Senate Democrats is how little it does to improve America’s ailing healthcare system. The plan funnels massive sums of money into everything from Medicare and Medicaid to Obamacare’s premium tax credits. But it utterly fails to ...

Biden Takes Obamacare From Bad to Worse

The Biden administration just announced a set of new proposals aimed at expanding access to coverage through Obamacare’s health insurance exchanges. The actual effects of these reforms will be inconsequential at best — and at worst, harmful. The main problem with the online marketplaces is that the plans on offer ...

Stop The Bid To Expand Medicare

Progressives in Congress are laying the groundwork to expand Medicare by the slimmest of margins later this year. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., the head of the Senate Budget Committee, is teeing up a $6 trillion legislative package that would, among other things, lower the age at which older adults become ...

Basic Income: High Praise but Poor Results

Handing out taxpayer dollars in the form of basic incomes is the latest policy rage. The Los Angeles Times reports there’s “a growing enthusiasm for basic income programs.” Vox says “guaranteed income is graduating from charity to public policy.” At KQED, they’re giving Oaklanders tips on how they can apply for the city’s ...
