The Affordable Care Act is doing plenty of good for older Americans, but one thing it is not doing is convincing them to retire early.
Hillary Clinton: “I encourage Congress to repeal the so-called Cadillac Tax, which applies to some employer-based health plans, and to fully pay for the cost of repeal.”
Obamacare now seems safe. Its imperfections well-documented, it remains a work in progress. But whoever is the next president should be grateful to have a universal health care program on which to build
In case you missed them during three hours of pessimism, lies, and awkward posturing, here are five imaginary crises Republican candidates will fix by repeating all of the mistakes we’ve already made.
Why is Trump so successful in drawing his opponents into battles they can’t win? He riffs on a Republican Party that is ripe for contemptible comedy, ridiculous rhetoric, and daring demagoguery.
Some truly historic things have unfolded this summer, and been only glanced at by a media transfixed on conflict and personality.
The Republican Party, after eight years of plotting Obama’s demise, is in far worse shape than it was the last time it lost the presidency. Here’s why.
Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz on Wednesday stepped up his criticisms of the U.S. Supreme Court over its recent decisions on gay marriage and Obamacare.

At the same time, the Kaiser poll also found that those who disapprove of the decision largely remain set in their views even if it is explained that the decision will help people.
It’s clear that Republicans consider the high court’s 6-3 decision a bitter defeat. In the hours after it was announced, Republican frustration was palpable.
Sometimes history speeds up. Rarely in our nation’s 239 years of life has a single week brought such a surge of social change and such a sweeping set of challenges to past assumptions.
Right wingers are going into apoplexy over the Supreme Court’s decisive 6-3 ruling upholding federal health insurance subsidies under Obamacare — and a lot of it is pretty entertaining.
Justice Antonin Scalia did not simply lose today’s key ruling on the federal health insurance subsidies for the Affordable Care Act — he had his own previous arguments turned against him.
“Today, after more than 50 votes in Congress to repeal or weaken this law; after a presidential election based in part on preserving or repealing this law; after multiple challenges to this law before the Supreme Court — the Affordable Care Act is here to stay.”
Twenty-one years ago, Bill Clinton reminded listeners of all the previous presidents who had tried and failed to create a universal health care system for Americans.
