Advocate Jared Published in the Washington Examiner on Obamacare

Advocate Jared Meyer was published in The Washington Examiner on Obamacare in the aftermath of the Hobby Lobby decision.

In terms of economics, the Supreme Court’s ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby gives opponents of Obamacare little to celebrate.

The case is narrow in its application. It is specifically applicable to “closely held businesses,” and does not affect all organizations. Additionally, only two types of birth control are exempted (morning-after pills and IUDs). This means the Affordable Care Act still retains many of its negative economic consequences.

Advocate PierreGuy Published in TheBlaze on Hobby Lobby and Government Regulation on Health Insurance

Advocate PierreGuy Veer was published in TheBlaze on the recent wave of court ruling striking down gay marriage bans.

The Hobby Lobby decision has stirred up quite a debate. While conservatives rejoice at this apparent respect of First Amendment rights (freedom of religion), liberals get all worked up about the violation of reproductive rights, the misogyny of the Supreme Court, and a plot to establish atheocracy.

However, no one seems to be asking a fundamental question: Why is government regulating health insurance in the first place?

Editor Casey Published in TheBlaze on Medicaid

Editor Casey Given was published in TheBlaze on Medicaid’s coverage gap under the Affordable Care Act.

As Obamacare cheerleaders continue their victory lap after last month’s exchange deadline, many are now turning their attention to states that have not yet expanded Medicaid.

The Orlando Weekly published an article this week tracing the ordeal of Charlene Dill, a Florida woman who died without health insurance because she fell into Obamacare’s so-called “coverage gap” — earning too little to enroll in Medicaid but too much to qualify for exchange subsidies.

The article condemned Florida Republicans for failing to expand Medicaid as offered under Obamacare. However, a closer look at the broken program surprisingly suggests that the Sunshine State — and the 24 others that haven’t expanded the program so far — may have made the more humane decision.

Advocate Rebecca Published at Red Alert Politics

Young Voices Advocate Rebecca Furdek was published in Red Alert Politics about Nancy Pelosi’s claims about the Affordable Care Act.

The Affordable Care Act is this: a mechanism by which government sloppily attempts to spread fiscal responsibilities, further crippling the millennial generation already straddled with unprecedented amounts of individual student debt, a broken entitlement system, an anemic economy and an ever-skyrocketing national debt. It’s a taxpayer-subsidized logistical nightmare month after month, one in which the administration and national leaders have resorted to ridiculous peer pressure campaigns to sway young people.

One thing it is certainly not, Pelosi, is “affordable, affordable, affordable, affordable, affordable.” Nice try.
