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.

Something odd has been happening with the Supreme Court battle over the legality of subsidies for Obamacare’s federally-organized health insurance exchange. The Obama administration has been claiming—beyond credulity—that it has no “Plan B” should the Court side with the administration’s challengers. “We don’t have an administrative action that we believe can undo the damage,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell at a recent Co...

On March 9, the Congressional Budget Office unveiled its updated budget projections for the years 2015 to 2025, including significant changes to its outlook for Obamacare’s spending and coverage estimates. The CBO now thinks that 8 million fewer U.S. residents will gain coverage from the health law, compared to its original estimates.

As we await a decision in the big Obamacare Supreme Court case, King v. Burwell, progressive pundits have continued to predict a health care apocalypse if the Court sides with challengers to the Obama administration. That’s a wild exaggeration.
