Topic - Obamacare
Promises, promises. Once upon a time, Barack Obama said he would put an end to monkey business as usual in Washington.
Obamacare has taken center stage in the nationwide battle to win control of the Senate. But when it comes to a key pillar of the law — expanding Medicaid — the trail of political drama still leads to state capitals, not Washington.
Normally, the Bully of the Week Award is reserved for an individual person or a distinct group of people. I guess you could say Obamacare is a group of people.
The Obamacare monster is just getting warmed up.
Republican lawmakers filed a bill Wednesday requiring states that abandon their faulty Obamacare markets to repay the federal government for grant funds they received to plan and build the portals.
Sen. Mary Landrieu cried foul Tuesday over a Louisiana state Senate panel's decision last week to reject a measure that would have allowed state voters to say whether they want to expand Medicaid coverage under the health care law.
President Obama's victory lap as his signature health care law goes into effect reminds me of former President George W. Bush's similarly foolish "Mission accomplished" proclamation during the Iraq war.
"Too many Americans have substandard health plans." That was just one of many arguments made by President Obama and his allies to justify why America needed the heavy government regulation included in Obamacare.
It is common knowledge that Barack Obama's presidency is becoming increasingly unpopular. Did you know, though, that much of the criticism is now starting to come from his own supporters?
A provision of the Affordable Care Act of 2010 requires members of Congress and their official staff to obtain health insurance from state-based exchanges tied to the law, although some have found a way around the provision.
The Obama administration said Tuesday that 8 in 10 Hispanic Americans may qualify for government-funded health insurance or financial assistance to pay for private plans on Obamacare markets.
Kentucky Democratic Gov. Steven Beshear on Friday unabashedly lauded his state's success in rolling out Obamacare in the face of state voters who never warmed to President Obama and a pair of Republican senators who bash the new health law at every turn.
Looking back, 2013 was a year filled with high drama in American politics.
Nearly 365,000 people selected a private health plan on state Obamacare markets through the end of November — a sign that people are flocking to the patched-up federal website, HealthCare.gov — although the new pace falls short of long-range projections for an inaugural sign-up period that ends in March.
The Obama administration promised to have the Obamacare website working smoothly by Saturday, but even President Obama knows this latest deadline is another target that his team is likely to miss.
"But, Senator Landrieu is not content with the damage she's already inflicted on our healthcare system," he added. "Senator Landrieu now wants to force Louisiana to implement Obamacare's Medicaid expansion, which will cost taxpayers billions and move up to 248,000 individuals off private insurance and into a government program."
"It's not going to happen," he said.
