Medicaid for All Would ‘Bankrupt the Nation,’ Warns Bernie Sanders—In 1987

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) introduced new legislation yesterday to expand Medicare to everyone in the United States.

Obamacare Repeal Is Dead. Here Come the Bailouts.

After nine months of legislative drama, the GOP effort to overhaul Obamacare is dead. Last week President Trump seemed to say as much, tweeting that Republicans should accept defeat on health care and move on to reworking the tax code.

The Trump Administration Is Cutting Obamacare’s Advertising Budget by 90 Percent. Good.

Last week, the Trump administration announced that it would reduce the advertising budget for Obamacare by 90 percent. For this, the Trump administration has been accused of intentionally sabotaging the health care law. There is little evidence that the promotional funds were cost-effective, however. And even if the Trump administration is undermining the law, that […]

The Single Payer Threat Is Real

Two years ago, if you had asked me about the prospects for a single payer health care system to be adopted in the United States, I would have said that there was essentially no chance in the foreseeable future. Single payer would be too expensive and too disruptive to both patients and providers. Even if […]

President Trump is Still Making Illegal Payments to Insurers Under Obamacare

Gage Skidmore / FoterFor months, President Trump has threatened to cut off a series of payments being made to insurers participating in Obamacare’s exchanges. These payments are known cost-sharing reduction subsidies (CSRs), and they are paid directly to insurers in order to offset deductibles and other out of pocket costs for lower income individuals enrolled […]

Why Republicans Didn’t Repeal and Replace Obamacare

The GOP’s intra-party war continues, with Donald Trump blaming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for the failure of the Obamacare repeal effort. On Twitter, Trump wrote, “Senator Mitch McConnell said I had ‘excessive expectations,’ but I don’t think so. After 7 years of hearing Repeal & Replace, why not done?” It’s a fair question. Part […]

By Propping Up Obamacare With Illegal Payments, Trump Is Eroding the Rule of Law

PAT BENIC/UPI/NewscomFor a prime example of how the poorly conceived policy of Obamacare interacts with the Trump administration’s disregard for the rule of law, look no further than the debate over the health law’s subsidy payments to health insurance companies. Over the last several months, as Republicans have struggled with legislation to repeal and replace […]

Asked today by The Hill‘s Rachel Roubein whether the new legislation is “worse than Obamacare,” Paul said “yes.” “Do you think this is worse than ObamaCare?” Sen Paul: “yes” — Rachel Roubein […]
