Wednesday was maybe the most embarrassing day in history for all of us as Americans.

A republic or a monarchy?”Franklin responded: “A republic, if you can keep it.”We kept it. Within hours of the mob's debacle ..read more

I've been doing health policy for thirty years. I arguably know something about health insurance.For the life of me, I can't figure out what Kelly Loeffler is proposing under her health plan––particularly when it comes to current protections for preexisting conditions.   In 2017, Republicans proposed a plan that would have arguably given states the ability to reverse Obamacare's protections for ..read more

Biden has won. Presuming the North Carolina and Alaska Senate seats remain in Republican hands,  the Senate will come out no better for Democrats than a 50-50 tie with Vice President-elect Harris being the tiebreaker. And, if Republicans win at least one of the two Georgia run-off Senate races, the Republicans will maintain control and the Democrats will not have the votes to move any partisan ..read more

For more than twenty years we debated ways to protect people from preexisting conditions limitations in health insurance.

Now that it appears certain that the Republicans will approve a new Supreme Court justice in the coming weeks, there is great concern among Obamacare supporters that this could well mean the end of Obamacare.That concern is being amplified in the hyper partisan environment in the ramp-up to the election––it makes for good scare tactics.The Obamacare case currently before the court deals with the ..read more
