Health Care

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.

All of the warnings regarding the harsh reality of ObamaCare were proven true on January 1, when it became clear that promises to offer healthcare for the masses were highly inflated. On the debut of ObamaCare, more health insurance plans were cancelled than there were new enrollments.

ObamaCare enrollment is far short of what was expected so far, and one reason for this is likely the up-front and "hidden" costs of the new healthcare program.

The free market in health care services which is already in place awaits the pending collapse of ObamaCare, ready to provide those services at lower costs without the mandates.

According to an article published this month in Consumer Reports, the number of children taking antipsychotic drugs is rising at alarming rates. Research shows that those numbers have nearly tripled over the last decade, not simply because there is a sudden increase in the number of children with schizophrenia or any other serious mental illness, but because more doctors are prescribing drugs to treat behavioral problems.
