Last fall, videos emerged showing MIT economist Jonathan Gruber—the architect of Obamacare—mocking “the stupidity of the American voter” for not perceiving the ways in which the controversial health law concealed its true costs. At the time, President Obama and others went through great lengths to deny Gruber’s centrality to Obamacare. But 20,000 pages of new emails, obtained from MIT by the House Oversight Committee, appear to prove Gruber’s cri...

On Monday evening, in front of a cheering crowd, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio (R.) announced his candidacy for President of the United States. At times stirring, at times nervous, Rubio declared that one of the core planks of his policy platform would be to “repeal and replace Obamacare.” Unlike some of his companions in the race, Rubio has outlined what his Obamacare replacement might look like.

Yesterday, the Supreme Court sided with the Obama administration in the King v. Burwell Obamacare case. In a statement after the decision, President Obama declared that his signature health law is “here to stay.” But in his remarks, the President knowingly ignored the key concept in the case: that if the challengers had won, not one word of the law called the “Affordable Care Act” would have been changed. On the other hand, if voters elect a Repu...

In march two freshman Republican senators—Mike Lee (Utah) and Marco Rubio (Fla.)—released an ambitious plan for tax reform. Nonpartisan experts believe the plan would turbocharge U.S. economic growth. But the plan is marred by a multitrillion-dollar effort at social engineering, one that would increase the deficit without expanding the economy.

Today, with bipartisan support, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a significant Medicare reform bill, by a vote of 392 to 37. The bill would repeal Medicare's "Sustainable Growth Rate," or SGR, and spend hundreds of billions of dollars increasing payments to doctors under Medicare, while modestly increasing Medicare premiums for upper-income retirees. President Obama has indicated that he will sign the legislation. But the bill appears to ...
