Will Obamacare Really Solve The "Uninsured" Problem?

Last week, I wrote about The New Republic claiming that Obamacare was already a success because the number of uninsured people in the United States had slightly dropped. Of course, the purported goal of the Affordable Care Act is to make sure that everyone has insurance. That was the intent behind the mandate that's now a tax or penalty or whatever. Is it going to work?Probably not.

Replacing ObamaCare: Insurance Across State Lines (Part 1)

Perhaps the most prominent conservative health care reform idea is to allow Americans to buy health insurance across state lines. It’s undoubtedly the GOP’s favorite talking point when it comes to replacing ObamaCare. Not only is it well-known, it’s also pretty popular. The benefits to such a reform are obvious, as any economist will tell you that more competition in a market typically leads to lower prices and higher product quality. It makes intuitive sense to most Americans, and there aren’t any exceedingly obvious reasons to object to the idea.

Health premiums are now $5,000 a year higher than Mr. Obama promised

Remember when candidate Obama promised to REDUCE health insurance premiums by $2,500 per family, per year?

DE Legislature Attempts Disasterous Healthcare Overhaul in Wake of ObamaCare Ruling

A new bill recently proposed in the Delaware legislature is threatening to implement a single-payer healthcare system that will destroy private health insurance, raise taxes, and drive away jobs and businesses in the First State.  In the midst of a potential ObamaCare failure in the Supreme Court, this bill would essentially work towards effectively socializing medicine in Delaware.

Replacing ObamaCare: True Insurance

Consider this: Why does your job offer health insurance, but not auto insurance? Certainly, you need to be healthy to come into work, but most Americans also need a car to get to work. For that matter, why doesn’t your job offer home or life insurance? What makes health insurance a common, nearly-ubiquitous benefit of employment in the United States?

Letter to House: Cosponsor H.R. 371 Health Care Choice Act

Dear Representative, FreedomWorks is a leading grassroots organization with over one million members fighting for lower taxes, less government and more freedom. I am writing today to urge you to cosponsor H.R. 371, the Health Care Choice Act. Introduced by Rep. Blackburn (R-TN), this bill would repeal title 1 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and amend the Public Health Service Act to permit consumers to purchase health insurance across state lines. These changes would allow consumers to purchase health insurance that best meets their needs in any state.
