Republicans have fought against Obamacare from the beginning, but now Democrats have started to pile on. President Bill Clinton recently lashed out at the system at a rally in Michigan:

“You’ve got this crazy system where all the sudden 25 million more people have healthcare and then the people are out there...

During the so-called “national debate” over Obamacare, countless people warned that this could happen but no one wanted to hear it. Now it’s a reality. How many of these students do you think voted for Obama?

It’s been seven years since the passage of the Affordable Care Act and the White House is still having trouble selling it to Americans, especially Millennials.

The problem is that Obamacare needs the money of healthy young people to survive, so the White House is trying a new push.

I recently noted that President Obama’s climate change edict for our national security strategists shows that he does not take warfare against American opponents seriously.

However, the President takes citizen opposition very seriously. For example, he is unleashing one of his most potent tools against Americans opting out of purchasing Obamacare.

Early predictions of ObamaCare’s failure were ignored, yet a new government report shows that American families are—as predicted—having trouble affording and accessing health care.

While he was running for Senate in the 2012, Ted Cruz spoke extensively on the virtues of portable health insurance — insurance not associated with any particular employer, but insurance that works more like vehicle insurance or homeowner’s insurance.

Obamacare as gateway drug to single-payer is working just fine

Single-payer healthcare is the Democrats’ holy grail, because it put the government completely in charge of one-fifth of the economy and every single person’s healthcare.

It’s total control, but at least as of 2008, it wasn’t a platform on which Obama could run. But as this early video shows, single-payer was always...

The more than 800,000 Americans who purchase their insurance from one of Aetna’s exchange plans will be out of luck once this year is over. Health insurance giant Aetna announced late Monday evening that they would be scaling back their Obamacare exchange offerings to a paltry four states.

The reason? Losses amounting...

Now that Obamacare co-ops are collapsing and Bernie Sanders has spent months revving up Democratic Primary voters on the idea of “free” healthcare, Obama is suddenly open to the idea of a public option in Obamacare.

Some might think this was the goal all along.

House Republicans are proposing five changes to ObamaCare while still asserting that they are interested in and working for full repeal.  Still wildly unpopular, ObamaCare highlights the divide between Republican and conservative voters who want it repealed and their representatives on the hill who, while having (show) voted for repeal many...

Non-profit Obamacare exchanges are a bit fat failure, premiums and deductible continue to soar while benefits diminish, and now, Health Savings Accounts may get the ax.

For health insurance consumers with high deductibles, HSAs are a lifesaver. Contributing pre-tax cash to the HSA helps offset out-of-pocket costs.
