Health Care

The U.S. government is using its payment system to control the types of medical treatment Americans get, leading to high medical costs and high mortality.

Facing increased health insurance costs under ObamaCare and its employer mandate, the Wegmans supermarket chain announced that it will no longer offer health coverage to many of its part-time employees.

 

 

Last week, the Obama administration announced that it would delay a key component of the healthcare law. The delay has prompted House Republicans to scrutinize the decision and question whether the administration possesses the authority to do so.

Two health insurers have announced that they are abandoning California's individual insurance market next year, forcing 58,000 people to find coverage elsewhere.

Tuesday's announcement by the Treasury Department delaying implementation of part of ObamaCare may turn out to be a brilliant political maneuver: defanging latent Republican resistance until after the 2014 elections.
