Last night the U.S. Senate passed a reconciliation bill that dismantles Obamacare and defunds Planned Parenthood and reallocates their taxpayer dollars to comprehensive health care centers.
Medical providers will tell you that about 75 percent of health care can be provided in a primary care setting. Yet rising health insurance premiums and narrower networks are making it a burden for patients to access basic health care.
Republican U.S. Sen. Thom Tillis talked Obamacare, energy policy, the federal budget, and the Export-Import Bank during a meeting with Americans for Prosperity activists during a luncheon Monday at the Langtree Plantation in Mooresville
Obamacare's failing co-ops (consumer-operated and oriented health plans) simply reinforce the fact that government intervention in health care creates all sorts of problems.
After the Obama administration issued overreaching EPA rules and regulations which could cause electricity costs to rise and hurt families across North Carolina, Governor McCrory announced he would sue the federal government to stop the rules.
Crafting a politically feasible health care reform that steers away from Obamacare's massive redistribution of health is more than a desirable component for any serious Republican presidential contender's platform. It is a necessity.
Flaws built into the Affordable Care Act are leading to an older, sicker mix of insurance policyholders in North Carolina.
Health policy doesn't exactly rank high on the summer reading bucket list. Let's be real - for most people, it's not all that fitting for the beach, and it surely doesn't pair well with red wine during a gossipy book-club meeting.
I have never been a fan of the Fair Tax, a proposal to abolish the income tax and substitute a national sales tax. My opposition has nothing to do with the merits of a national sales tax as opposed to an income tax per se. Clearly, as an economist, I agree that the proper and most efficient tax...
As part of his remarks while visiting the White House on his first day in the United States, Pope Francis made a strong plea on behalf of religious liberty, which he specifically directed at President Obama. This came shortly before he made an unscheduled visit with the Little Sisters of the Poor...
Since the World War II era, workers have benefited from a rather large implicit tax subsidy on health coverage provided by their employers. Every dollar an employee spends from earned income is taxed, but every dollar spent on health care is not. Those who purchase health plans on their own lose...
The crisp air signals the end of the summer weather for most of us especially in the North East because we are starting to see the color of the leaves change to brilliant hues of red, yellow and orange.
The Senate on Tuesday rejected a last-minute amendment that would expand Medicaid eligibility, and with 34-10 bipartisan support passed a bill making sweeping changes to the government insurance program for the poor, elderly, and disabled.
Renee Ellmers is running to and fro trying to convince low-information voters across the Second District that she has been a valiant warrior princess against ObamaCare. Chamber of Commerce
THAT is the spin being circulated by the establishment in the wake of John Boehner's resignation from Congress.
Well, this ad popped up during the most recent televised GOP presidential debate -- making it clear that North Carolina's Second Congressional District GOP primary will be just as much of a media circus.
I have never been a fan of the Fair Tax, a proposal to abolish the income tax and substitute a national sales tax. My opposition has nothing to do with the merits of a national sales tax as opposed to an income tax per se. Clearly, as an economist, I agree that the proper and most efficient tax...

Progressives everywhere are calling for an increase in the minimum wage. (For a look at the progressive movement's historical support for the minimum wage see this article.) The amount of the increase depends on who is calling for it. President Obama wants a 40 percent hike from the current...
With this week's vote and debate on whether or not to proceed with building the Keystone XL pipeline, most of the arguments have centered around economic claims, in particular the pipeline's impact on oil prices and jobs. Personally, my support for the pipeline has nothing to do with either of...
Last year, Jonathan Gruber was "one of the most respected economists in the world," in the words of U.S. Senate majority leader Harry Reid on the Senate floor. He was cited favorably by then-U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. He was praised by NPR and others for producing a comic book featuring...
In previous newsletters, I've discussed how both ends of the political spectrum strive to reform our nation's health care delivery system by following through with the "triple aim" concept of former CMS administrator Dr. Donald Berwick - increase access to care, reduce health care costs, and...
This Halloween, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (BCBSNC) customers were spooked by skyrocketing premiums when opening their 2015 rate notification letters for their non-group health plans. While it turns out that the mailings provided incorrect information for an estimated 38,000...
Lovers of socialized medicine are quick to point out that the United States is the only country in the developed world that doesn't have some form of universal government run, i.e., single payer, health care system. While this may be true, the US system of health care payment and delivery does...
Obamacare's original second enrollment period to #GetCovered has just about come to a close. (It was supposed to end on Sunday, but the administration announced this week that they will be opening a new special enrollment period during tax season.) The Obama Administration has been chirping...
While Obamacare continues to flood the health care sector with more taxes and mandates, it's simultaneously driving insurers and health care providers to increase price transparency. Because the law's pricey regulations are either driving employers to push more benefit cost sharing onto employees...
The 2015 legislative session has commenced, which means that the House and Senate will be hashing out their differences about how best to reform our state's Medicaid program. The Senate favors a privatization approach, where multiple managed care companies (MCOs) compete for state contracts to...
