As health care remains one of the major election topics, politicians continue to rally voters in their favor. Gathered at Independence First, U.S. House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, and a panel of health professionals addressed a crowd that has cause for concern. "The Affordable Care Act provides critical access to health insurance for Americans with disabilities. The law prohibits discrimination in health care coverage against people with preexisting conditions and people with disabilities fall into this category," said Deb... [Read More]

Most insurance companies selling individual and small group health plans in Connecticut have requested significant rate increases for next year, attributing the proposed hikes to growing health care costs and uncertainty in Washington D.C. about the erosion of the Affordable Care Act. [Read More]

Sarah Palin burnished her reputation as a supremely ignorant commentator on public issues with her false assertion that the Affordable Care Act would create "death panels."

Days after saying he would continue Medicaid expansion in Ohio if elected governor, Ohio Attorney General and Republican candidate Mike DeWine supported another Obamacare provision -- coverage of pre-existing conditions, according to WOSU. DeWine's running mate, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, made the announcement that the DeWine campaign would join current Gov. John Kasich and Democratic candidate Richard Cordray in support of pre-existing condition coverage. "Mike DeWine and Jon Husted support coverage for pre-existing medical conditions," Husted said. "Health insurance needs to be there when patients need it most." Significance to... [Read More]

The National Federation of Independent Businesses, supposedly a trade association for small business but really just one more arm of the Republican party, got what it wanted from the Trump administration. It got all the Affordable Care Act sabotage it could ask for, short of repeal, and also got something it has been clamoring for for decades: association health plans, a mechanism for small businesses to band together to provide health insurance to employees.

When the same party controls both the U.S. presidency and Congress, ambitious legislation can happen. Look at the Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, passed under Democrats in 2010, or the bill that cut $1.5 trillion in taxes that was passed by Republicans at the end of 2017. The congressional elections coming on Nov. 6 could bring one-party government to a halt -- and potentially spell all sorts of problems for President Donald Trump, a Republican -- if it's a "wave election" that breaks i...

Despite multiple attempts by the GOP-led Congress to repeal it, the Affordable Care Act has survived. A large part of the reason it survived was because regular citizens who had benefited from Obamacare's provisions flooded their representatives' phone lines and town hall meetings with demands to retain it. So it's all the more galling that the Trump administration — with assistance from Congress — is making a concerted effort to undermine the act's viability and effectiveness. The Trump administration announced last week that it was cutting grants to nonprofit organizations that help people get health insurance under the Affordable... [Read More]
