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.

Obama and Univision – Sophistry and Missed Questions

Democracy and Power 108: ObfuscationPoliticians know their constituents are generally inattentive to their political actions.  Thus, a politician’s speech is seldom precise or logically reasoned.  Seeking a favorable image, politicians talk in generalities, exaggerations and obfuscation.

Every Legislator Must Oppose the IRS Power Grab

The Obama Administration is trying to raise taxes without Congressional approval, and they really don't care what you think about it.  Every legislator, whether state or federal, must oppose the usurpation of legislative prerogative. Citizens should oppose the move, which will raise their taxes without even a vote in Congress.At National Review Online,  Michael Cannon and Jonathan Adler write:

Obama Lies, Taxes Rise

Last night during an interview for 60 Minutes, President Obama made the false declaration that "I haven't raised taxes."  But recent news coming out of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) begs to differ, and a majority of proof that the President's statement is patently false comes from his signature legislation - Obamacare.During his interview, Obama blamed rhetoric and lies for the notion that he has raised taxes.

Replacing ObamaCare: Insurance Across State Lines (Part 2)

Let’s take a closer look at how interstate insurance sales would impact another important element of consumer-driven health care reform: true insurance. If you’ve forgotten, true insurance is individual insurance. Most people receive their health insurance as the result of a group insurance plan provided by their employer.

Meet the New HMO -- Same as the Old HMO

Dean Clancy is right that health reform debate is about only two basic alternatives -- the HMO or the HSA. Reform either comes with top down, authoritarian price controls and foolish attempts to control the market with bureaucratic systems like Health Maintenance Organizations, or with a thin layer of structure to allow free people to make their own decisions, as happens with Health Savings Accounts.

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.
