Obama Administration Renames Obamacare Exchances "Health Insurance Marketplace"

With states, including North Dakota, resisting the implementation of Obamacare health insurance exchanges the Obama administration has decided to engage in a little re-branding. They now want to call the exchanges “health insurance marketplaces.” Health Insurance Marketplace, or just Marketplace, has replaced “exchanges” in how HHS now refers to a key and soon-to-go-into-effect provision of

Obamacare Might Price Smokers Out Of Health Insurance

The so-called “Affordable Care Act” isn’t really making health insurance more affordable for anyone. Thanks to clouds of new regulations and mandates, health insurance is going to get more expensive for everyone in the country. But smokers, especially, are going to be hard hit: WASHINGTON (AP) — Millions of smokers could be priced out of

City Cuts Hours For Municipal Workers Due To Obamacare

Just another moment of “hope and change” brought to you by the Affordable Care Act. Due to the health insurance requirement of “Obamacare,” Milford Township’s part-time employees have new limits on how many hours they can work each week. The township Board of Trustees voted unanimously Jan. 16 to restrict township part-timers to a maximum

Colleges Slashing Professor Hours Because Of Obamacare

What’s ironic is that I’m guessing most of the people now getting their hours slashed were big proponents of the Affordable Care Act: Many colleges are cutting back on the number of hours worked by adjunct professors, in order to avoid new requirements that they provide healthcare to anyone working over 30 hours per week.

How Jack Dalrymple Is Helping To Implement Obamacare

The fight against Obamacare has become a war of attrition and, as George Will notes in his column today, those who would implement that awful policy are caught between a rock and a hard place because of the manner in which Supreme Court upheld the law. Obamacare requires that insurance companies accept all new customers,

Why Can't We Call It Fascism When It Is Fascism?

The CEO of Whole Foods – yes, you read that right, Whole Foods – recently referred to Obamacare as fascism. It was an appropriate application of the term. “Traditionally socialism means that the means of production are run by the government and in fascism the means of production are still owned by private individuals but

Dalrymple: Funding For Obamacare Medicaid Expansion Is "Free Money"

“North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple makes four Republican governors who’ve decided to back an expansion of Medicaid to their poor residents under President Barack Obama’s health care law,” reports the Huffington Post. “Dalrymple submitted a bill to the state legislature last week proposing the state broaden Medicaid.” I wrote about Dalrymple slipping the implementation of

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

Dorso Column: What Was Blue Cross Thinking?

What are they thinking? BCBS of ND hires a Democrat, Paul von Ebers as their CEO.  That wouldn’t bother most but then he hires Denise Kolpack a known Democrat operative, and former campaign manager for North Dakota’s junior Senator Heidi Heitkamp, as Chief of Staff.   Even that might be passed over as a legitimate move

Brilliant New Solution To Health Care Costs: Government Price Controls

Pricing is paramount in a free market. Price signals are what regulates the market. They’re set by supply and demand, and in turn control supply and demand. When supplies are short, and demand is high, prices go up to protect supply and discourage demand. Price also encourages expansion of supply to meet demand by being
