Why has Medicare’s Innovation Center failed?

The House Energy and Commerce Committee recently convened a hearing on the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.

Although the center “was created over a decade ago and provided billions in funding and broad authority to find ways to save taxpayer dollars and improve health outcomes for patients,” Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) and Rep. Brett Guthrie (R-Ky.) noted, “it has little to show in demonstrated successful outcomes.” Why is this so?

7 states sue to block new Biden transgender nondiscrimination rule

Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey (R) and six other states are suing to prevent the implementation of a federal rule that expands nondiscrimination rules to include transgender people. This lawsuit comes on the heels of a federal judge issuing a preliminary injunction last week against the rule in a separate federal case.

Hold off the death squads: Highly misleading coverage of SCOTUS immunity decision

On MSNBC, Rachel Maddow warned that the Supreme Court had just unleashed death squads to roam our streets. CNN legal analyst Norm Eisen announced that murder was now legal (at least for presidents), while others predicted that the ruling on presidential immunity would invite "tyranny." 

Anyone reading the coverage would conclude that James Madison has been replaced by John Wick in a new "Baba Yaga" Republic.

President Biden fueled the se...

ALICE is on the rise in the US

Following last week’s Poor People’s Low-Wage Workers’ Assembly Morale March on Washington D.C., attention has further turned to ALICE.

No, it’s not a she, rather it’s an acronym coined by United Way, which stands for: Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed.

This term represents hard-working Americans who are employed but still unable to afford basic necessities such as food, housing, healthcare, childcare, and transportation.

Judge blocks Biden administration’s new transgender health protections

A federal judge on Wednesday temporarily blocked enforcement of a new Biden administration rule bolstering health care protections for LGBTQ people, handing a preliminary legal victory to more than a dozen Republican-led states that challenged it in court. 

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in May unveiled a final set of sweeping changes to Section 1557, the nondiscrimination provision of the Affordable Care Act. The changes, which had been slate...

Trumpcare could be the gamechanger America is looking for 

In last week’s debate, President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump both whiffed on a critical issue sliding under the radar in the race for the White House: the rising costs of healthcare. 

It’s not the first such missed opportunity.  

Early in his first term, Trump in good faith expressed confidence that a GOP Congress would deliver a “terrific,” “phenomenal,” and “fantastic” alternative to Obamacare. But former House Speaker Paul Ryan a...
