The Consequence The Supreme Court Obamacare Challenge

The Supreme Court hears the latest challenge to Obamacare this week.  The consequences of a decision (which won’t come until June) are stark: As a result, the elimination of the subsidies would destabilize the individual insurance markets in states not running their own marketplaces. Under the ACA, insurers would still be required to guarantee access […]

Republicans in these states realize that if the Supreme Court rules against the Affordable Care Act, their citizens will be in very bad shape, with no subsidies for health care coverage. The justices hear arguments about the matter next week. If the court sides with the plaintiffs, who argue that subsidies are not allowed in […]

Hello, chickens coming home to roost! Long-time readers of C&L should be pretty familiar with Richard Mack, crazy Arizona sheriff who was last seen in public visiting the White House, while supporters outside called for President Obama’s lynching. Mack ought to be shaking the President’s hand and thanking him for the Affordable Care Act, but […]

Anomaly at FreakOutNation details the effort to undermine what is already working. Marco Rubio set up Florida Health Choices, which is totally putting President Obama to shame. Taxpayers had to initially fork over $900,000, and Rubio’s brainiac health care alternative garnered an entire 30 sign ups. That’s in contrast to the 1.6 million sign ups […]

But talk to any conservative and they’ll tell you what a failure it is.  The nation’s controversial health care exchange has enrolled 11.4 million Americans in its second year of existence, according to figures released by the White House on Feb. 17. The Obama administration’s initial figure target was 9 million, but significantly less than […]

It is, of course, to avoid providing health care. Last year Alice*, 19, typically clocked anywhere from 25 hours to 40 hours a week at the Staples store where she works as a part-time staffer. The hours were great, she says, because she loves her co-workers and uses the job to help support her family. […]

Who was it who said, “The fifth-sixth time is the charm.” Oh, that’s right, no one. The vote was largely symbolic, because the measure is unlikely to pass the Senate and would face a certain veto from President Barack Obama if it did. But Republicans insisted on the vote, casting it as a chance to […]

Okay, so I exaggerate, but only slightly. Republican Rep. Charlie Dent, who is in a Pennsylvania district Mitt Romney won in 2012 just 51 to 48 percent, last weeklamented the kinds of issues House Republicans have been taking up so far in this new 114th Congress. In his words: “Week one, we had a Speaker […]
