Tom Purcell: Open season on healthcare consumers
Open enrollment is making me miserable. Like millions of self-employed Americans who have been buying their own health insurance for years, my policy, which I had liked and wanted to keep, has nearly doubled in cost since Obamacare became law. What a fine policy mine was. I purchased...

Supreme Court upholds key Obamacare insurance subsidies

Bryon York: Dem’s path after Obamacare: Down, down, down
There were 60 Democrats in the Senate on Christmas Eve 2009, when they voted in lockstep to pass the Affordable Care Act. Soon there will be 46 Democrats in the Senate, or perhaps 47, if Sen. Mary Landrieu manages to eke out a win in Louisiana. In plain numbers, the post-Obamacare...

Donna Brazile: Victory for middle America
One year ago, the health care exchanges established by the Affordable Care Act, or ACA, opened access to quality, affordable health care for millions of Americans. Today, despite years of unremitting partisan opposition and continual legal challenges, it’s unassailable that the...

Byron York: The more people know about ACA, the less they like it
Democrats have long believed Obamacare would become more popular once it was fully in place and Americans got a chance to see it up close. So why is Obamacare less popular now than a few months ago? Because it is fully in place and Americans have had a chance to see it up close. According...

Donna Brazile: Obamacare is doing well
Please keep this quiet. I’m all for a more civil society, especially in Washington, and I don’t want to anger people. (Whisper) “Obamacare has succeeded.” In April, we learned there were 8 million sign-ups on the online health care exchanges during open enrollment, far surpassing...

Byron York: Not so fast on the Obamacare ‘good news’
To hear administration officials and their supporters in the press tell it, this is a great time for Obamacare. People who signed up for coverage are actually paying for it; more insurance companies are joining exchanges; some consumers have more choices than originally envisioned....

Bryon York: Will Obamacare’s losers outvote its winners this November?
When it comes to the politics of Obamacare, there’s really only one question that matters: How many Americans are benefiting from the new health care system, and how many are hurting? Problem is, we know more about the first part of the question than the second. Obamacare’s advocates...

Bryon York: Ammo for anti-Obamacare ads is plentiful
Some conservative political groups have run into trouble making ads that criticize Obamacare. The ads were intended to showcase “horror stories” from the Democrats’ national health care overhaul, but instead attracted zealous fact-checking and ferocious pushback from media...

Michael Reagan: The Obamamedia high-fives Obamacare
Watching the president doing his Obamacare victory lap in the Rose Garden the other day made me feel so sick to my stomach I had to call my doctor. But seeing the mainstream media join the celebration like a pack of liberal lapdogs made me wonder if I was watching a channel from...

Dick Polman: Obamacare haters can’t handle the truth
If there’s one thing Republicans hate even more than health insurance for a growing number of Americans, it’s empirical evidence that Obamacare is insuring a growing number of Americans. As we hit the first enrollment deadline, the raw stats demonstrate that the health reform...

As the chaotic healthcare enrollment period grinds to a halt, it is clear that Obamacare has changed America. Oh, what a tangled web liberals weaved when they practiced to deceive Americans — about why it was “necessary” to dismantle America’s healthcare system, when all...

Michael Reagan: Deception 1342 of the Affordable Care Act
Talk about March Madness. The 31st is the deadline for signing up for Obamacare, which has made the buying and selling of health insurance one of the most complicated, deceptive disasters in the history of Big Government. The president could always whip out his Hugo Chavez pen again...

Byron York: A GOP plan to repair Obamacare, not repeal it
There’s no doubt the vast majority of Republicans in Congress would repeal Obamacare if they could. Most GOP “alternative” bills begin with a clause to repeal the Affordable Care Act before proceeding to outline new policies to put in its place. Of course, GOP lawmakers don’t...
