Health Care

Midnight December 23 marks the deadline for Americans to sign up for health insurance and pay in full in order to have their coverage begin on January 1. This deadline will serve as a major test of how much public interest in ObamaCare still remains after the disastrous launch of its website on October 1.

 

 

Republican stalwarts claim to want smaller government, including less involvement in healthcare, but their occasional constitutional rhetoric seldom is followed by proper action.

The Obama administration recently announced that it would essentially be forcing insurance companies to give free coverage to people who have signed up for coverage on an exchange but not yet paid.
