Health Care

House Republicans seeking to "defund" ObamaCare may find more ammunition for that battle in reports that the lower premiums expected from the insurance exchanges created under the Affordable Care Act will be accompanied by fewer choices of doctors and hospitals.

The Home Depot announced that it will be dropping health coverage for its roughly 20,000 part-time employees, leaving them to buy subsidized coverage on ObamaCare's insurance exchanges.

Despite attack ads by an Obama front group blasting Republican lawmakers for refusing to fund ObamaCare in the upcoming budget, a new poll released this week shows most Americans actually support partially shutting down the federal government until funding for the administration’s controversial healthcare takeover is cut. Other recent surveys, meanwhile, revealed that public opposition to the so-called “Affordable Care Act” has reached record levels — and as time goes by, it is only becoming more unpopular.

 

Today House conservatives introduced the first detailed alternative to ObamaCare — legislation to increase the tax breaks for those who buy their own insurance.

The latest controversy to haunt ObamaCare is a requirement that physicians ask intimate questions about patients’ sexual history.
