Democrats’ Budget Plan Hides a Slow-Moving Healthcare Takeover

Progressives just got one step closer to their dream of socialized health care. In a party-line vote this week, the Democratic House majority ratified a $3.5 trillion budget plan that includes the largest expansion of government-run health care in recent memory. Among other things, the proposal would lower Medicare’s eligibility …

Obamacare subsidies offer welfare to the wealthy

This week, the House of Representatives will consider the $3.5 trillion budget resolution that passed the Senate earlier this month. The proposal includes a host of liberal goals, including permanently extending certain Obamacare subsidies that Congress had previously made more generous only through 2022. These subsidies are already enormously expensive. …

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.

Medicare And Medicaid Turn 56 Today. That’s Not Exactly Cause For Celebration.

Today, Medicare and Medicaid mark their 56th birthday. They were signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson to ensure that seniors and the poor had access to quality, affordable health coverage as part of his Great Society.

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 …
