Get ready for another showdown on NSA spying

The National Security Agency's vast spying apparatus has been a tremendous hurdle for the United States' still-burgeoning tech industry. Many lawmakers on Capitol Hill are, however, unconcerned with the economic impact of these surveillance programs, making it difficult for meaningful reforms to work their way through Congress.

Millennials make up only 24 percent of ObamaCare sign ups, still far below expectations

Before the initial ObamaCare open enrollment period, the Obama administration emphasized the need for millennials -- young people between the ages of 18 and 34 -- to sign up for health plans available on the exchanges. Health insurance companies need diversity in their risk pools to offset costs, because older and sicker people tend to utilize their coverage more often than the young and healthy.

Jonathan Gruber, in 2009, said it's "good" that ObamaCare doesn't control costs

One of the big arguments for ObamaCare is that the law has mechanisms in place that control healthcare costs, or at least that's what Americans have been told countless times by President Barack Obama and others. They've seized on recent reports of the slowdown in healthcare spending, frequently asserting that the 2010 law is responsible. In reality, the looming effects of the Great Recession is the main reason why healthcare spending has risen at a slower pace.

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.

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.
