Medical Device Tax: Stifling Innovation and Hurting Veterans

It should surprise no one that Obamacare contains numerous time bombs of illogical and destructive policy. One such policy, which has recently gained national attention, is the implementation of a 2.3% medical device tax. This tax applies to any and all medical devices, from crutches to high tech surgical equipment.

Yet Again, HHS Secretary Sebelius Extends ObamaCare State "Exchanges" Deadline

The more forgiving amongst us may feel some genuine pity for Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. On one hand, President Barack Obama loaded her department with the mammoth task of writing up the thousands of rules and regulations that will constitute the real weight of ObamaCare. On the other, he charged Secretary Sebelius with the even more onerous duty of convincing a (rightfully) skeptical American public that the new 2,801 page health care reform law represented a landmark achievement that would benefit all citizens. So far, this hasn't gone so well.

Journalists Being Trained by Pro-Obamacare Group on How to Report on Obamacare?

Back in 2010, an agreement between a pro-Obamacare foundation and a society of business journalists had been questioned as a ‘cozy propaganda arrangement’. This arrangement has recently continued through sponsorship funding and training efforts that will provide journalists with "specialized education in health care reporting".

Conflicting Rulings on Obamacare

When Nancy Pelosi announced that the Obamacare bill would have to be passed in order to see what was in it, the American people knew (or should have known) that this was not a piece of legislation which had been fully considered. Now that it is law, this is becoming increasingly evident on at least one front; the response to litigation against it. A look at decisions made regarding lawsuits filed against Obamacare show that the judicial system was not prepared for such arguments. Take, for example, the cases of Hobby Lobby and Domino’s Farms.

Hobby Lobby - Stuck Between Rights and Government

Nationwide arts and crafts store Hobby Lobby is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Or, as the case may be, between fundamental rights and the government enforcement of law. A first amendment battle is brewing on the grounds of religious freedom and, as the battle is heating up, neither side looks ready to budge.

No Office Calls

Very soon, only 1 in 3 physicians will be independent. The rest will work for hospitals, insurance companies, and increasingly, Accountable Care Organizations. The trend is a result of perverse incentives in the medical market that make it difficult or impossible for doctors to operate outside of a corporate practice.Rather than alleviating this trend, so that doctors can focus on treating their patients, Obamacare exacerbates the problem.

First Round of the ObamaCare Exchange Battle Goes to the States

Today is an important day - we're one giant step closer to reversing the government takeover of our health care.The deadline for states to begin setting up their own, state-run health care exchange under ObamaCare was today, December 14th. This deadline was a crucial trial for ObamaCare, and the verdict is in -- 26 states, a majority of the union, are currently declining to set up an exchange.Below is a map of how each state stands on the exchanges:

Better Late Than Never? Democrats Realizing Obamacare Taxes Will Kill Jobs

In one of the more infamous statements regarding the process in which Democrats sought to force-feed health care reform to the American people, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi quipped, "We have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it".

Why States Should Run From PPACA

States should not implement health insurance exchanges as defined by Obamacare. There is no fiscal advantage to doing so. An exchange will not improve life for a state's citizens, and there is great risk of political liability for officials responsible for an exchange.
