According to the Obama administration, 86 percent of ObamaCare enrollees receive financial assistance to help pay premiums. Of that amount, approximately three-fourths live in the 37 states that are currently served by the federal insurance exchange.
A bipartisan trio of United States senators is sponsoring a bill to block the federal government from prosecuting medical marijuana use in states where it is legal.
The Supreme Court appeared to be divided during opening arguments in the King v. Burwell case over the legality of the ObamaCare subsidies. A decision in the case is expected by the end of June, and would potentially impact eight million people.
Apparently not content with medicating more than one out of every five Americans with mind-altering and potentially dangerous psychiatric drugs, the Big Psychiatry and Big Pharmaceutical industries are working to promote their latest invented “mental disorder” supposedly requiring their benevolent and costly assistance: being too concerned about eating healthy. Calling the proposed new “disorder” orthorexia nervosa, the increasingly discredited establishment press has so far been more than happy to unquestioningly parrot the notion that people deeply concerned with eating healthy and nutritious food are somehow “ill” and in need of expensive “treatment.”
The Obama administration has conveniently decided to re-open the ObamaCare enrollment period for those Americans who are hoping to avoid bigger fines next year for being without health insurance. The administration is ultimately capitalizing on the fact that many people were surprised to learn as they did their taxes this year that they were being fined for not having coverage in 2014. At the same time a new special enrollment period has been announced, the Obama administration also admits that 800,000 Healthcare.gov customers have received incorrect tax forms.
The deadline for enrolling in ObamaCare exchange coverage was extended a week, and congressional Democrats want another enrollment period in April for those who were fined for being uninsured last year.
Over the last decade in the United States, the deaths of over 100 children — at the very least — have been linked to receiving a measles vaccine, compared with zero children dying from the disease itself, according to the U.S. government’s own compiled data. Put another way, an American child would have been infinitely more likely to die after receiving a measles shot, percentage-wise, than from getting the actual measles in the last 10 years. Thousands have suffered from adverse reactions. The explosive numbers have massive implications for public health efforts, analysts said.
California's measles outbreak raises the question of whether governments have the right to force parents to have their children vaccinated.
On Wednesday, Republicans unveiled their work-in-progress alternative to ObamaCare, but the “blueprint,” as they call it, mirrors much of what is found in the Affordable Care Act.
