Conservative Group ‘2017 Project’ Unveils Obamacare Alternative

Last month, a group of Republican senators unveiled a health care plan that grappled with how to create an alternative to President Obama's health care law as part of a strategy to repeal it. A conservative group known as the 2017 Project, headed by Jeffrey Anderson, has released another proposal rooted in the following premise: The common formulation is that we need to 'repeal and replace' Obamacare.

Obama: Waxman One of the Best Lawmakers Ever

President Obama today lauded retiring 20-term Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) as one of the most accomplished legislators of all time.

“Early in the 20th Century, Henry Waxman’s grandparents came to America, the land of opportunity, and found a place where they could build a better life for themselves and their families.  Over the course of 40 years in Congress, their grandson has fought to give every American family that same chance,” Obama said in a statement. “Thanks to Henry’s leadership, Americans breath cleaner air, drink cleaner water, eat safer food, purchase safer products, and, finally, have access to quality, affordable healthcare.”...

As Thomas Jefferson noted, education gives “to every citizen the information he needs for the transaction of his own business.” In this case, such education would help citizens to understand that their business — their personal needs — cannot rightly be  advanced at the expense of some other citizen’s life, liberty or property...

Government Takeover: White House Forces Obamacare Insurers To Cover Unpaid Patients At A Loss

Of all of the last-minute delays, website bungles, and Presidential whims that have marred the roll-out of Obamacare’s subsidized insurance exchanges, what happened on Thursday, December 12 will stand as one of the most lawless acts yet committed by this administration. The White House—having canceled Americans’ old health plans, and having botched the system for enrolling people in new ones—knows that millions of Americans will enter the new year without health coverage. So instead of actually fixing the problem, the administration is retroactively attempting to force insurers to hand out free health care—at a loss—to those whom the White House has rendered uninsured. If Obamacare wasn’t a government takeover of the health insurance industry, then what is it now?...
