President Obama’s perspective on healthcare is far removed from reality, it seems. He recently declared regarding his healthcare law, “this thing is working,” while Americans across the country are bearing the burdens that the law has created. Just ask the widows in an Alabama county who have been dropped from their health insurance because of the healthcare law.

A report released April 9 by the Office of Inspector General for the Department of Health and Human Services urged greater scrutiny of doctors who are the highest billers for Medicare payments.

According to former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the timeline for the ObamaCare rollout was "flat-out wrong." Clearly more comfortable speaking honestly about the healthcare program now that she has resigned her position, Sebelius admits that the federal exchanges would have benefited from "more time and testing" before officially going online.

 

 

Kathleen Sebelius' resignation as the head of Health and Human Services, and her replacement, is likely to have little impact on the rolling disaster of ObamaCare. 

The implementation of the new healthcare law has produced a number of unpleasant surprises for those who ignored warnings by ObamaCare critics, including increased costs, less choice, and in many cases, the loss of their current health plans and physicians. Adding to this list is the latest development: Consumers will be unable to purchase health insurance from now until the next enrollment period, which begins January 1, 2015.

Health-insurance premiums are rising at their fastest rates in three years thanks to ObamaCare, a new survey of insurance brokers finds.

According to a new Gallup survey released April 7, the number of ObamaCare sign-ups is not as high as the White House has been claiming. The survey shows that the number of uninsured Americans has decreased by just three million, not the 7.1 million the White House is alleging.

As the Obama administration continues to field criticisms over the disastrous last day for healthcare enrollment on the government website, a new survey relays details that are sure to cause further trouble for ObamaCare advocates.

The Obama administration announced that the March 31 deadline for enrolling in coverage on the federal insurance exchange will be extended for anyone claiming to have already started the process.

Internet news pioneer Matt Drudge announced that he'd begun paying his ObamaCare individual mandate penalty, drawing sharp retorts from ObamaCare supporters, including the Obama administration.
