10 ways the GOP sabotaged Obamacare

10 ways the GOP sabotaged Obamacare

May. 17, 2017 — The story of Obamacare's problems is not complete unless we take a look back at all the ways Republican lawmakers took steps to deliberately weaken the Affordable Care Act.

Thank you, Justice Roberts, for saving our butts

Thank you, Justice Roberts, for saving our butts

Jun. 28, 2015 — John Boehner would never say it publicly, but he has to envy Roberts. Here's what I think Boehner would say in a letter to Roberts if he knew no one else would ever see it.

Obamacare’s ‘victims’

Obamacare’s ‘victims’

Jan. 2, 2014 — When ‘victims’ step forward, reporters need to investigate these claims. If newspaper editors and television producers are willing to put them in the media spotlight – in front of a huge local or even national audience – they also have a duty to give their readers and viewers the facts they need so that they can judge the validity of the allegations. – Maggie Mahar

The dismal politics of Obamacare

Oct. 10, 2013 — I think different Republicans hold a full range of motivations with respect to the health care law. Some oppose the Affordable Care Act out of high principle, a genuine belief on the part of some opponents that ACA is taking health policy in a wrong direction, that it's undesirable and is going to foreclose reforms that they see as better and more promising.

House Speaker Boehner and President Obama may be our modern day Thelma and Louise, playing a little chicken with us all, with Obama proposing some pretty dramatic solutions and Boehner and the Republicans offering little except "no" to tax rate increases and raising the Medicare eligibility age.

Why there is no “Next Big Idea” for reform

Nov. 19, 2012 — Bottom line: The President doesn't need to come up with new ideas. He just has to stand firm on implementing what we have.

GOP turns a deaf ear to women … again

Apr. 26, 2012 — After the recent hoopla over contraception, you'd think the GOP leader might think twice about short changing millions of women who have already been given the short end of the stick on health coverage.

Health reform is being hated less ;)

Jun. 24, 2010 — If you listen to John Boehner, health reform is not only completely abhorrent to the critics who pummeled it for months on end, but it’s now also uniformly despised by everyone, everywhere. In reality, health reform is probably viewed negatively (ranging from “completely loathed” to “not really certain what it will do”) by about half […]
