Trump admin encourages states to use federal subsidies to promote purchase of Obamacare-noncompliant plans, employer plans, etc. Good! Drive a stake through the heart of Dracula.
Nebraska Farm Bureau predicted in 2009 that Obamacare premiums would skyrocket for farm and ranch families. Then it happened. Then the Bureau started a group association plan to do something about it.
The Obamacare individual mandate is dead and short-term plans are flying off the shelf. None dare call it catastrophic insurance. Take THAT, ACA Genius Masterminds!
Short-term plans can now last 3 years, affording a reasonable alternative to cockamamie Obamacare.
Illinois retrogrades impose limits on short-term health plans. Nothing says ‘we care’ like hanging on to the failed policies of the past.
Florida Obamacare rates to go up an average of 5%, more than inflation. This is NOT what we were promised. #ItsNotWorking #WheresMy2500
650 ACA plans to pay for abortion on demand in 2019 in clear violation of the statute, up from this year. (new rules address this by requiring separate payment for abortion coverage)
California SEIU-led union – fresh off 3 victories – feels its oats, mobilizes to pass Medicaid expansion in remaining states
Musical chairs underway to pay for Nebraska Medicaid expansion. Which programs will be cut – education? transportation?
Virginia Medicaid expansion enrollment to exceed projections. GOSH, whodathunkit! It’s blown up everywhere else it’s been tried. Were Virginia politicians dishonest, stupid, or both?
Virginia’s doctors can take 14,000 new patients. Where are the 400,000 new Medicaid patients supposed to go? The situation can’t get any better and everybody knew it 2 years ago.
Hooray for Maine’s outgoing Governor LePage for staying true to his principles – requests a stay of Medicaid expansion because expansion would cause a fiscal crisis in the state
Idaho Medicaid expansion challenged in court as unconstitutional delegation of legislative power; voters left too many blanks for bureaucrats to fill in
GOP legislature in Kansas could refuse to send Medicaid expansion to desk of new Dem Governor who wants it
WaPo is totally warped. No, the disaster in Arkansas is not work requirements kicking people off Medicaid expansion. It’s the expansion itself and the expensive way Arkansas did it. THAT was epic. The state is trying to clean up the mess it made.
Illinois Gov. Rauner rips presumptive Medicaid eligibility – sign them up now, determine their eligibility later is “fundamentally terrible policy” (another reason why Medicaid is a runaway train) #Unsustainable
Cost-shifting from the uninsured to private payers is WORSE, not better, after Medicaid expansion. #TheyWereWrongAboutEverything
By all means, let’s take an #Unsustainable program and get it to pay for even more stuff. ‘Social determinants of health’ #SDOH is a recipe for fiscal chaos
Deconstructing the Single Payer Narrative (tweets & analysis) –

END THE OBAMACARE CONGRESSIONAL EXEMPTION!
