Democrat: "It's Not Fair" For Congress To Be Subjected To Obamacare

Obamacare is ok for the average American, but not for Congress, at least according to one Democrat: Dozens of lawmakers and aides are so afraid that their health insurance premiums will skyrocket next year thanks to Obamacare that they are thinking about retiring early or just quitting. The fear: Government-subsidized premiums will disappear at the

Affordable Care Act: "Some Americans could see their insurance bills double next year"

Remember when Obamacare was all about “bending the cost curve” and making health insurance cheaper and easier to get? Yeah, about that: Some Americans could see their insurance bills double next year as the health care overhaul law expands coverage to millions of people. The nation’s big health insurers say they expect premiums — or

Expanding Medicaid In North Dakota Would Be Short Sighted

Governor Jack Dalrymple has broken ranks with Republican opponents of Obamacare nationally and slipped the expansion of Medicaid, called for in the Obamacare law, into his budget.

Government health care is so great that people

Obamcare Would Increased North Dakota Medicaid Enrollment By 46%

Nothing says “solving the health care crisis” like hearing more people onto government health care. North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple has begun to cave on Obamacare. In addition to hinting that North Dakota might be willing to deploy one of the law’s health care exchanges through a state/federal partnership, Dalrymple has also put the law’s

In Great Britain 60,000 Patients Die Per Year Thanks To Government Cost Saving Measures

Earlier this week I wrote about a study which concluded that the government could make health care, and health insurance, cheaper for Americans by instituting price controls. I noted that this would give us something akin to the “death panels” Sarah Palin talked about, and was ridiculed for bringing up. But what other term but
