SCOTUS Punts On Obamacare; Trump Will Lie Again For 2020 21.1.2020 Crooks Liars
Rather than fast-track the latest challenge to Obamacare, the Supreme Court punted past the 2020 election. And while that appears to be a win for the so-called Trump administration, it puts Trump's 2016 lies about "terrific healthcare at a fraction of the cost and it's going to be so easy" on the front burner for 2020. [clmediameta nid=127951] Politico gets this wrong: The outcome means Trump will face less pressure to articulate an Obamacare replacement plan during the campaign. Republicans failed to agree on an Obamacare replacement when they had complete control of the federal government in the first two years of Trump's presidency, and they haven’t come up with a new plan since then. A health care proposal developed by Trump's Medicare chief Seema Verma was nixed last summer over her colleagues' concerns it would have actually strengthened Obamacare rather than replace it. Protect Our Care Chair Leslie Dach gets this ...

Undoing 'Obamacare' Harms More Than Americans' Health 24.12.2019 Crooks Liars
Simon F. Haeder , Pennsylvania State University The Affordable Care Act remains on life support after a panel of federal judges ruled on Dec. 18, 2019 that the law’s individual mandate requiring people to buy health insurance is unconstitutional. The decision hobbles the law in ways that are hard to predict politically, particularly in the upcoming election year. It also raises questions for the 20 million people who gained coverage in the marketplaces and all Americans who gained protections through the ACA. The ACA’s individual mandate is a foundation of the law. Experts argued that the mandate was the only way to bring healthy people into an insurance pool . That is important to allow insurers to spread the costs among a broad mix of people, not just the sick. It served as a crucial bargaining chip for the Obama administration in bringing insurers on board to support health care reform a decade ...
