  • Obamacare Undermines American Values

    We wrote earlier this week about the ways Obamacare discourages marriage and work. These aren’t the only traditional values it undermines.

    How Obamacare Discourages Work and Marriage

    How Obamacare Will Affect All Americans

    Is the Administration Offering Insurers an Obamacare Bailout?

    Security Violation Just the Tip of the Obamacare Iceberg

    Over the weekend, Heritage brought you the exclusive story of Justin Hadley, a North Carolina man who, after learning his insurance policy was being canceled due to Obamacare, logged on to HealthCare.gov and found a big surprise—the eligibility information of another family in a different state. It’s just the latest … More

    How the Administration Knew Americans Would Lose Their Current Health Plans

    There has been much chatter about an NBC News report last night highlighting one clear fact: The Obama Administration knew millions of Americans would lose their current health plans due to Obamacare. That the Administration knew about the impact of Obamacare on Americans’ health plans is clear, not least because … More

    Obamacare Website Calculator Doesn't Show Real Cost of Many Plans

    CBS News reports this morning on another problem with the flawed Obamacare exchanges: In many cases, the new online calculator available at healthcare.gov underestimates premium costs for health insurance: Industry analysts, such as Jonathan Wu, point to how the website lumps people only into two broad categories: “49 or under” … More
