  • UPDATED | Where You Can Buy Health Insurance After Today

    UPDATE (April 2): We wrote on March 31 (below) that Americans would still be able to buy health insurance in the individual market—outside Obamacare’s exchanges—after the Obamacare deadline.

    Russia’s Vladimir Putin took part of a country. So what kind of world does that mean we’re living in? It’s a world where we can’t act like we did yesterday. Here are three things that simply don’t make sense for America to keep doing. 1. Leaving Europe high and dry … More

    How Obama Is Strangling the Economy in Red Tape

    Regulation: It’s a mostly hidden drain on the economy—and a favorite of the Obama administration. It affects all of our lives—and wallets—yet rarely makes headlines. Why? It’s complex; it’s constant; and the sheer volume of regulations is stunning. Heritage experts James Gattuso and Diane Katz have just updated their one-of-a-kind … More

    Obama Administration: We Never Mean a Word We Say

    No, it cannot happen. It will not happen. The Obama administration absolutely, positively will NOT extend the deadline to sign up for Obamacare. This isn’t even a laugh line anymore. It’s just an eye roller. And how silly these guys look now: “We have no plans to extend the open … More

    Bill Clinton, The Washington Post, and The Heritage Foundation Agree on This

    The Obama administration is beginning to transition control of the Internet away from the United States—and that has us worried.

    A Timeline of Obamacare Delays in Pictures

    Obamacare is now four years old. But unlike most 4-year-olds, it still can’t walk on its own. It’s been tripping and falling over itself for years. Just in the last year, the Obama administration has delayed or changed so many parts of the law—not to mention the technical “glitches”—it’s tough … More

    Giving the Internet Over to the U.N. -- or Worse

    How has the Internet worked so well—and stayed as free as it is—for so long? One big reason is U.S. oversight, and the Obama administration has now said it’s giving that up. Absent oversight of the Department of Commerce, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will likely … More

    Have You Saved $2,500 Lately?

    President Obama recently admitted that Obamacare will cause some Americans to lose their doctors. Some have suggested that his promise “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” should be 2014’s “Lie of the Year.” But what about his promise that Obamacare would lower premiums by $2,500 per … More

    Taking a Stand Against Obamacare

    Obamacare has caused seemingly endless problems, and one of the big—and very personal—ones will be on display at the Supreme Court next week. Often called the HHS (Health and Human Services) mandate, one of Obamacare’s stipulations is that employers who are providing health coverage to their employees must pay for … More

    One Problem We Still Haven't Fixed

    You may not have heard much about the housing market lately…but that isn’t because it’s safe. Leaders in Washington were in denial about Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s finances before the last housing crisis. We know how that turned out. And taxpayers are still on the hook for the loans … More
