The cabal is still in total control.

H/t reader squodgy:

“Obamacare thrown to the wolves as competition allowed in.

Strange how those in Congress didn’t sign up to what they advocated for the masses.

Crass hypocrisy”

Even The Cheapest Obamacare Plans Are “Unaffordable” In 94% Of American Cities, New Study Finds

Even The Cheapest Obamacare Plans Are “Unaffordable” In 94% Of American Cities, New Study Finds:

We’ve frequently warned that Obamacare is locked in an inescapable death spiral that will result in its inevitable failure.  The problem is that the folks who make too much to qualify for subsidies (currently defined as roughly $80,000 for a family of 3) are increasingly being priced out of the market for individual insurance by Obamacare’s 30%+ price hikes that consistently come year after year.  Meanwhile, those “rich” families making $80,000 a year are the ones expected to overpay for their health insurance so that a portion of their premiums can be “spread around a little bit” (as Obama likes to say) to subsidize the premiums of others.  Of course, it’s easy to see the circularity here as higher premiums equals less “full-paying” customers and less subsidies equals higher premiums…until the whole system collapses.  

Luckily you no longer have to take our word for it as eHealth.com has just published a new study that finds that, even by Obamacare’s own definition of “affordability”, residents in 47 out of 50 cities surveyed can’t afford the cheapest Obamacare plan.

Mission accomplished!

Senate Republicans Reveal New “Obamacare-Lite” Healthcare Bill:

In what could very well end up being just another exercise in futility, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has just released a new version of a healthcare plan which, among other things, incorporates demands from Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) to allow insurers to sell low-cost, skimpier plans all in an effort to draw conservative support for the new bill.

New Healthcare Bill Will Include Cruz-Lee Amendment And $45 Billion To Fight Opioid Epidemic:

While no one has seen the Senate’s revised healthcare bill as of yet, early indications suggest that it will include a version of a controversial amendment from Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT) that has become a sticking point in the negotiations.  Among other things, the amendment would allow insurers to sell plans that do not meet ObamaCare regulations if they also sell a plan that does meet those rules.

Called the “Consumer Freedom Amendment,” we highlighted the main points of the Cruz/Lee proposal last month:
