Expanding Obamacare is a Costly Prescription

Last month, President Biden proposed fixing the so-called “family glitch,” a quirk in Obamacare’s text that has prevented millions of people from purchasing subsidized coverage through the exchanges.

A bankrupt argument for single-payer health care

Are Americans going bankrupt because of medical debt? Leading progressives seem to think so. Sen.

Biden must not kill off short-term health plans

Democratic lawmakers are looking to limit patient choice in the health insurance market.

Pay No Attention to the Healthcare Catastrophe Behind the Curtain

A new report from the Biden administration purports to be a clear-eyed assessment of where the Affordable Care Act stands after 12 years on the books. In fact, it’s a piece of pro-Obamacare propaganda — and an especially dishonest one at that. Titled “The State of the ACA,” the study opens with the …

Put Patients in Charge to Keep Healthcare Spending in Check

New research suggests health insurers could take some negotiating tips from people who pay for health care out of pocket.

Obamacare Enrollment Blitz a Bad Sign for Future of US Healthcare

Open enrollment on most of Obamacare’s insurance exchanges ended this past Saturday. Sign-ups have hit all-time highs across the country.

Democrats Stumble Over Their Shady BBB Gimmicks

Last week, on Dec. 19 specifically, Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., announced that he would not support the current iteration of the Build Back Better Act. His decision calls the future of the $1.75 trillion spending package into serious question. For this, Democrats have only themselves to blame. After all, Manchin’s demands …
