Last we reported, eight non-profit co-ops created by the Affordable Care Act announced they were closing. Two weeks later, that number is now eleven.

State and federal regulators have suspended Arizona’s Meritus Health Partners and Meritus Health Mutual Partners. Like the ten non-profit tax-payer funded co-op closures before, regulators cited financial troubles...

Consumers living in the country’s fourth largest city will no longer be able to purchase an individual PPO.

I started writing this post before I checked the mail today.

Needing a break from the computer screen, I wandered out to the mailbox to find an “OPEN IMMEDIATELY, THE APOCALYPSE IS NIGH” envelope from my health insurance provider, tucked between the junk mail and a cooking magazine. Sure enough, it...

Seems like only yesterday we were reporting the fifth state level health insurance co-op closing in Kentucky. Since Thursday, the co-op closure toll has jumped to eight.

Twenty-three tax-payer funded co-ops were created under Obamacare.

Kentucky’s nonprofit health insurer cooperative established under Obamacare announced it will be shutting down due to financial troubles. As a result, 51,000 individuals will lose their health insurance plans at the end of the year.

I should be experiencing some amount of schadenfreude, as the fight against Obamacare was one of the major action items of my local Tea Party...

The financial benefits and savings touted by Obama and his allies on the road to Obamacare’s passage are still failing to live up to their promise.

In fact, the largest non-profit co-op created under the law is about to fold.

When President Obama was pushing Obamacare, he stated  before a joint session of Congress in September 2009 that it would not be opened up to illegal immigrants.

Remember what happened next? Representative Joe Wilson yelled, “You lie!” and it caused quite a stir.
