This week Obamacare passed an unflattering milestone. As of today, the Obama administration has spent longer botching the implementation of Obamacare than the Roosevelt and Truman administrations spent fighting and winning the Second World War.
America’s involvement in World War II began on December 7, 1941, with the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It ended 1,365 days…
The plight of Hobby Lobby, the arts-and-crafts business whose owners are being forced to compromise their faith, instantly draws the sympathy of religious conservatives. But why should anyone else care?
Recall first that the Department of Health and Human Services issued under the Affordable Care Act a “preventive services” mandate requiring employers to provide, through…
By now, young adults have heard that they are key to making Obamacare work, and the Obama administration has spent ample resources trying to convince them that the law is a good deal for them.
But they don't seem to be buying in. A new Harvard poll shows that 57 percent of young adults polled disapprove of the health care law. And with good reason: The law will impact…
The Obama administration is urging its supporters to make the most of the holidays by turning family dinners and other social gatherings into platforms for boosting enrollment in Obamacare.
Supporters can even log on to a working website for talking points that can help them push loved ones including those who, due to Obamacare regulations, have lost "the insurance they…
The problems with Affordable Care Act seem endless. Now the unpopular health-care law is headed back to the Supreme Court, this time over one of the law’s many onerous mandates restricting choice and trampling fundamental freedoms.
The court recently agreed to review the requirement that forces employers to provide coverage of abortion-inducing drugs and devices or…
The national media have paid a great deal of attention to the deeply troubled rollout of Obamacare. Enrollment and insurance coverage problems—aggravated by the bumps and glitches at the Healthcare.gov website—have dominated headlines for weeks. But another front in the national healthcare war is opening up with little media fanfare: Disruption of care in the financially…
Corporate advertising often reflects the evolving zeitgeist. Three new ads that poke fun at the Obamacare rollout fiasco do just that. But what makes them particularly noteworthy is that they are from a health insurer.
Both the source and the message are significant on several counts.
First off, the insurer, Wellmark, is the parent company of the Iowa and South Dakota…
Everything is “on track.” Over the course of three and a half years, that’s what Obama administration officials repeatedly told Congress.
On October 1, the day the administration opened its website, only six living, breathing human beings enrolled in Obamacare. It turned out that the predictable little “bumps and glitches” were instead wholesale information-system…
Hundreds of thousands -- perhaps millions -- of people have lost their health care coverage under ObamaCare. And it’s not the botched website or even bureaucratic incompetence (although there’s plenty of the latter to go around) that accounts for the failings of the new health program.
Rather it’s the misguided idea that government should replace the individual and…
In response to the wave of insurance cancellations hitting millions of Americans, and the admission by some that President Obama’s “if you like your plan” promise was false, Obamacare’s defenders are now taking a different tack.
While the law’s supporters finally admit that some people will be worse off under the law, they now claim that those “losers” will be few and…
With a disastrous ObamaCare website rollout and millions of Americans being kicked off their health-insurance plans, it's clear things aren't going well for the president's signature legislation. This week saw fresh evidence of how worried ObamaCare supporters are: news of an effort to use Hollywood story lines to send a message to Hispanics that they should sign up. It's…
It’s not a secret that Obamacare is wreaking havoc on the health-care sector, and this is prompting many Americans to ask for an escape. However, we wouldn’t want to go back to the health system as it existed before the Affordable Care Act.
Recognizing this, the Heritage Foundation last week released a definitive compilation of health-care solutions that make patients…
“’Tis but a scratch!”
So insists the knight after King Arthur cuts off his left arm in the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. When Arthur severs his right arm and begs him to surrender, the obstreperous knight again refuses: “Just a flesh wound,” he claims.
Given the disastrous rollout of Obamacare, one could easily conflate Health and Human Services Secretary…
Beyond the disastrous rollout of the Obamacare website, many Hispanic business owners see other problems ahead. These include hiring freezes, lower employee hours and increased insurance premiums.
Editor’s Note: From time to time, Latin Business Today will present views from across the political spectrum on issues of vital interest to business people. These views are…
So how much more is your health insurance going to cost you?
That’s the question, really, as Obamacare begins taking effect, and the stories pour in from around the country: how much your premiums are going up, not if they are going up.
Rising costs are a fact of life, but the changes Americans are seeing as a result of the president’s signature law are putting the…
