  • ObamaCare Benefits from Scarcity Heuristic

    Reading Time: 2 minutesThe Concorde was a supersonic passenger plane. It shuttled people between New York and Paris very quickly. When commercial Concorde flights began in 1976, the novelty and excitement of flying at twice the speed of sound led people to line up to take the flights. But after 27 years and several safety mishaps, the Concorde’s […]

    Subject:   How to Repeal All of Obamacare by Inauguration

    Republicans have promised voters a full repeal of Obamacare since 2010, when the health care law was first passed. In fact, since Republicans took control of the House in 2011, Congress voted over 60 times to repeal parts or all of the law.

  • Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri must work to fix a broken system

    The stunning results of the election show that voters are demanding change. People across the country feel like Washington has rigged the system against them — and they are right.

  • Memo: How Congress Can Stop the Impending Obamacare Bailouts

    Subject:     How Congress Can Stop the Impending Obamacare Bailouts

    There is widespread agreement that Obamacare is on the verge of collapse, and while that should prompt calls for full repeal, the reality is that many in Washington are instead contemplating how the law can be propped up.  Much of this will play out in 2017 and beyond with a new administration and a new Congress,

  • Heritage Action Supports Sasse-Walker Taxpayers Before Insurers Act (S. 2803 / H.R. 5904)

    When setting up the Obamacare exchanges, three “risk mitigation” (read: bailout) provisions were written into the law to incentivize large health insurance companies to participate in the government takeover of our healthcare industry. The three bailouts are known as the risk corridors, reinsurance, and cost-sharing subsidies. Despite these cronyist “risk mitigations” for big business, Obamacare has been an unmitigated disaster for the average citizen’s health plans and tax dollars. In fact, due to these bailout options,

  • St. Louis Meeting to Determine Cancer Patients’ Fate

    The heated national debate over drug pricing headed to St. Louis this week, where a hearing was held Thursday over the value of new drugs designed to treat a deadly form of blood cancer.

  • Conservatives to Ryan and McConnell: No Obamacare Bailout

  • Gruber is as Obama does.

    Courtesy of the Gateway Pundit, here’s ObamaCare co-architect Jonathan Gruber taking a stab at putting on a ‘humble and contrite’ face, after being called to testify to the House today, in regards to the multiple videos (6? or is it 7 now?) gloating a…

  • ObamaCare: So awesome, we keep exempting people from it.

    Today the White House announced another, Constitutionally illegal (the fourteenth to be exact), executive policy change to the ObamaCare Law. They will allow folks with cancelled plans to purchase those crappy bare-bones “catastrophic” plans that weren’t good enough when the law was first passed, but now that it is a complete disaster, those plans are fine.

    Hundreds of thousands of people whose health plans are being canceled because their coverage doesn’t meet Obamacare rules will be exempt next year from the U.S. mandate that all Americans carry medical insurance.

    People losing coverage will now be allowed to buy bare-bones “catastrophic” insurance that the law usually limits to those younger than age 30, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said yesterday. Others can opt out completely without the threat of the fines being imposed next year on the uninsured as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

    So yesterday this type of plan wasn’t good enough for any American, any where. Today, they are perfectly acceptable. And, they are only acceptable because your government says they are acceptable.
