Video of this event just posted.
The Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act (ACA) remains unpopular. A continuing exodus of insurers has left consumers with fewer choices and higher prices, while fueling speculation about the collapse of the dwindling number of health insurance exchanges. Reports indicate one third of counties, one sixth of enrollees, and seven entire states will have only one carrier in the Exchange. At the same time, critics hav...

The quality of care in America’s health care sector is as bad as the customer service. Stossel may think he’s getting “excellent medical care.” But he doesn’t know it, and neither do his doctors, because there is no market system to show how much better it could be.

"This long-overdue admission that Congress is not a small business shines a klieg light on the fact that members of Congress and their staffs are receiving health insurance and a subsidy of up to $12,000 each through a program from which federal law categorically bars them.

And don't forget to register for the Cato Institute's event on the ‪#‎MillennialMandate‬ this Wednesday, featuring Jay Bhattacharya, and Asako Moriya. (Click here to register: http://www.cato.org/events/obamacares-millennial-mandate-what-does-it-cost-what-it-buying-us.)
ObamaCare’s Millennial mandate may be the perfect crime. Politicians hand out benefits, but no one can tell who’s paying.

This is why opponents fight ObamaCare. The law makes it harder, not easier, for sick people to find secure, high-quality health coverage.

I blogged.
The best we can hope for is to minimize the potential for conflicts that impede the growth of medical knowledge. Kudos to Dr. Steven E. Nissen for taking a confidence-inspiring step in that direction.

Senate leaders can all but guarantee that full repeal can pass the Senate with just 51 votes.

Two recent Supreme Court rulings -- one Justice Kagan, the other by Justice Scalia -- have dealt with issues of statutory interpretation so similar that we can insert the facts from Halbig and create our own Supreme Court opinions.
