New Lawsuit Places Obamacare in Peril

Obamacare is in serious danger. After weathering a Supreme Court challenge that threatened to gut the law by striking down the individual mandate, major pillars — the business penalty, the individual penalty, and the generous health-care subsidies that make the exchange plans affordable — are being challenged in court, with at least two lawsuits potentially dealing mortal wounds before New Year’s Day. The chink in the armor is that Obamacare subsidizes plans for people “enrolled in through Read more […]

Obama Blames “Bad Apple Insurers” for Canceled Insurance Plans

President Obama tried a new tack Wednesday as he fought back against criticism of his Obamacare claims.

CNN: Obama Pressuring Insurance Companies to Keep Quiet About Obamacare Problems

Last night, CNN’s Anderson Cooper spoke with investigative reporter Drew Griffin about an increasing number of reports suggesting that the Obama administration is putting pressure on insurance companies who might speak out against Obamacare.

Hundreds of Thousands of Floridians Lose Their Health Insurance Because of Obamacare

Health plans are sending hundreds of thousands of cancellation letters to people who buy their own coverage, frustrating some consumers who want to keep what they have and forcing others to buy more costly policies.

Some Insurance Rates to Quadruple with Obama’s “Good Deal” on Healthcare

When you live in a fancy house paid for by taxpayers, go on dozens of luxury vacations per year paid for by taxpayers, and have armies of servants cooking for you, cleaning for you, and protecting you (also paid for by…you guessed it – the taxpayers), I think it’s fair to say your perception on a “good deal” might be a little bit skewed. President Obama feels that the new premiums based on the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare to the masses) are quite reasonable. A positive benefit. An Read more […]
