The New Year has ushered in ObamaCare’s insurance mandate on employers, marking the end of the unilateral delays that were passed one year ago by the White House. The delays provided ammunition to Republicans who argued that Obama was improperly providing administrative fixes where legislative ones were required.
It has been revealed that ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber admitted in 2009 that the bill lacked cost controls and that, inevitably, certain individuals would have to be denied care — all while Barack Obama was telling voters just the opposite.
Increases in Medicaid enrollment reportedly will coincide with a decrease in payments made to doctors, in turn reducing access to medical care for Medicaid enrollees.
ObamaCare's insurance exchanges, intended to increase competition in insurance markets, are actually far less competitive than the pre-ObamaCare markets, according to a Heritage Foundation report.
Under a proposed federal regulation, insurance exchanges would have the option of reassigning some exchange enrollees to cheaper health plans than the ones they selected in the past.
