Expect crony health insurers to lobby Congress to extend the costly Medicaid payment increase

ObamaCare's individual mandate and bailouts aren't enough for the health insurance industry. The looming expiration of the two-year Medicaid payment increase has, once again, put health insurers on the same side as President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats, who want to extend the payments to doctors.

Jonathan Gruber: "If you like single-payer, then ObamaCare has to succeed"

Roughly a month before videos surfaced in which he disparaged American voters and bragged about deceptive tactics used to ram ObamaCare through Congress, Jonathan Gruber, the controversial MIT economist paid nearly $400,000 to help craft the law, appeared on a panel with several other healthcare policy experts to talk about its progress and the continuing debate on healthcare reform.

Congress should let ObamaCare's Medicaid payment increase expire

The Obama administration continues boast of the rise in Medicaid enrollees. Just before Christmas, for instance, Cindy Mann, deputy administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, hailed as a "milestone achievement" the addition of 9.7 million Americans to Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) since October 2013.

Vermont nixes single-payer healthcare, because socialism is ridiculously expensive

The outrageous tax increases that would have been required to make Vermont's proposed single-payer healthcare program a reality forced Gov. Peter Shumlin to pull the plug after years of planning.

Oversight Committee hits Jonathan Gruber with a subpoena for ObamaCare documents

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee isn't done with the Jonathan Gruber. Just days after the MIT economist appeared at a marathon hearing before the committee, Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) issued a subpoena for Gruber, demanding that he turn over all documents and communications with federal, state, and local officials related to the work he's done on ObamaCare.

Yes, minimum wage increases reduce employment and hurt low-skilled workers

Earlier this year, the Congressional Budget Office released an analysis on effects of raising the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, a proposal supported by President Barack Obama and many Democrats on Capitol Hill. The nonpartisan fiscal research arm of Congress estimated that this artificial increase would result in as many as 1 million workers losing their jobs, a finding that was disputed by the White House and economists more interested in advocacy for a cause than the consequences of bad policy.

Spending deal blocks the Obama administration from using taxpayer funds to bail out health insurers

There are plenty of provisions in the newly released $1.014 trillion hybrid spending bill, dubbed the "CROmnibus," that are unwise, wasteful, and bad public policy. There are, however, some policy victories tucked away in the more than 1,600-page document, among them a provision that blocks the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services from using taxpayer funds to bailout health insurance companies that participate in ObamaCare.

Jonathan Gruber contradicted himself on the availability of ObamaCare subsidies in a big way

In addition to his stunning arrogance and the insincerity of the so-called "apology" he offered to American public on Tuesday, Jonathan Gruber gave a new, albeit completely misleading defense of remarks he's made about the availability of ObamaCare subsidies to states that don't set up their own exchanges.

Jonathan Gruber's arrogance and hostility completely undermines his already insincere apology

Jonathan Gruber apologized for his "insulting and mean comments" about the intelligence of voters during his opening statement before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The manner in which he conducted himself throughout the hearing, however, brings into question his sincerity. Even his apology came across with a strong degree of arrogance and contempt for the general public.
