South Carolina exercising the Tenth Amendment

On April 25, the South Carolina House passed a partial nullification of Obamacare that, according to State Representative Mike Burns, would be the first such legislation “passed by any state in modern American history AFTER the Supreme Court gave its opinion on the constitutionality of a federal act.” Burns, who opposes Obamacare, said “H.3101 would require the state to refuse the creation of an ObamaCare exchange, Medicaid expansion, and much more. This covers a big portion of the steps needed to fully nullify Obamacare.” If passed by the Senate, signed by the governor, and implemented by the state’s Attorney General, the bill would ...

Oklahoma Obamacare premiums to skyrocket

Oklahoma (the Sooner State) residents who purchased Obamacare will soon face, on average, a more than 75 percent increase to their health-insurance premiums — a reality that’s unlikely to drive any more brave souls to stake their claim in the state-run healthcare exchanges. The Washington Examiner has the details: Oklahoma's Insurance Department said on Tuesday that increases in individual marketplace plans will range from 58 percent to 96 percent. "These jaw-dropping increases make it clear that Oklahoma's exchange is on life support," said Insurance Commissioner John Doak, in a statement. "Health insurers are losing massive amounts of ...

As Obamacare co-ops crumble, residents in five states have no choice in their Obamacare exchange

Lawmakers nationwide gave speeches touting the Obamacare exchanges, saying the exchanges will create “competition” (though how this works when the exchanges are all hewn from the same rock and under the auspices of Obamacare apparently never occurred to these legislators) and thereby drive down health-insurance prices. They couldn’t have more wrong as the exchanges are crumbling. A total of five states now only have a single Obamacare-exchange option. The Daily Signal has the details: Five states will be down to just one health insurer on the Obamacare marketplace next year, and consumers in 664 counties are projected to face that same ...
