ObamaCare Forces Kids Into Medicaid

Under ObamaCare, children eligible for government healthcare programs must be covered under those programs and not on family insurance plans bought on an exchange, or families will forfeit their insurance subsidies.

Hundreds of thousands of Swedes are opting to buy private health insurance to escape the slow, poor-quality care they receive in their government's healthcare system.

 

 

 

Low enrollment by young, healthy people, among other things, suggests that ObamaCare will precipitate a "death spiral" of skyrocketing insurance premiums.

Healthcare.gov is no more secure today than it was when it launched and may actually be getting worse, information-security experts told a House committee.

Last year, federal regulations imposed an additional $112 billion in regulatory costs and 157.9 million paperwork burden hours on Americans, according to a study by the American Action Forum.

 

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) filed suit in federal court Monday to overturn the Obama administration’s finding that Congress, despite clear statutory language to the contrary, is exempt from a significant portion of ObamaCare.

A new study finds that expanding Medicaid, the primary means by which ObamaCare insures more Americans, increases the use of emergency rooms and the concomitant cost to taxpayers.

The Obama administration recently exempted from ObamaCare's individual mandate all Americans whose health insurance policies have been cancelled under the law.

Beginning January 1, the manufacture and importation of Thomas Edison's incandescent light bulb will essentially be banned in the United States under a 2007 law.
