There's Still Time to Block ObamaCare Exchanges in Idaho!

Idaho is among the reddest of red states, and would seem to be an obvious frontrunner among the states resisting ObamaCare's health care exchanges.  Indeed, Idaho Governor C.L. "Butch" Otter has long been a vocal opponent of ObamaCare, and even signed an executive order banning his state's employees from enforcing ObamaCare.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Obamacare Individual Mandate

On Wednesday, The Hill reported that the Obama administration had begun to implement the individual mandate at the heart of Obamacare. Noting its unpopularity, rules have been written by the IRS and Department of Health and Human Services that "downplay the scope" of the mandate and emphasize the exemptions. As a curious blogger, I wanted to see for myself the fact sheet that was disseminated.

More On The Horrors Of State Run Medicine

In a previous post, I've discussed the horrifying effects on patients in Great Britain's National Health Service (NHS) when government bureaucrats make medical decisions based on a formula that measures the expected quality of life if a patient is allowed to survive.

Journalists Instructed to Report on Benefits of Obamacare: "There's Only Upside"

Earlier this month, we covered a suspect symposium being sponsored by a pro-Obamacare organization, designed to provide journalists with "specialized education in health care reporting”.  The anticipation of media bias was palpable.  Previous revelations of this relationship prompted one reporter to write, "this sounds like a program to teach reporters to write supportive stories about the health care reform law.”

State Exchanges and the Cost of ObamaCare

In his second inaugural address on January 21, 2013, President Barack Obama stated that “we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit.” With regard to health care, all indications are that the price of health insurance will increase as a result of ObamaCare, with the federal government attempting to pass along these costs to the states by asking them to implement state-run health insurance exchanges.

There’s No Such Thing as a Free Launch

"If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there'd be a shortage of sand." — Milton FriedmanAs President Obama took office in 2009, I sold electronic health records, which track a patient’s medical history by computer instead of by hand. For a couple of decades, companies like mine had helped medical providers save money while they improved their patients’ quality of care. Once we installed and launched EHR software at a doctor’s office or hospital, it was a win for everyone.

Youth Hit Hard By Obamacare Law

In 2008, the under thirty crowd overwhelmingly voted for Barack Obama and in 2012 they doubled down on their allegiance to him, with over 60% of young voters choosing the incumbent president.

Health Care Exchanges, Round 2

As I wrote in December, the fight over ObamaCare is far from over, and Round 1 went to the states.  So far, 27 states have resisted ObamaCare by refusing to participate in setting up a health care exchange, the bureaucratic mechanism for implementing the health care law.  See below:
