Yet Another Problem with Healthcare.gov

It's now working too well, at least in one respect: The government's health insurance website is quietly sending consumers' personal data to private companies that specialize in advertising and analyzing Internet data for performance and marketing, The Associated Press has learned. The scope of what is disclosed or how it might be used was not …

Paul Krugman and the Truth Just Don’t Seem to Get Along

I won't hold my breath waiting for the New York Times to correct Paul Krugman's latest op-ed piece. But the New York Times really ought to correct Paul Krugman's latest op-ed piece. And perhaps it ought to discipline Krugman for being so cavalier with the facts, which in his op-ed, he pretends are "awkward" for the …

The Never Ending Trainwreck

If you want some reassuring news about Obamacare, you have come to the wrong blog: The president of the United States informs us that under Obamacare, we "might end up having to switch doctors."

Roughly 22,000 Americans have filed appeals with the government to try to get mistakes …

It’s Time for a Big, Giant Health Care Reform Roundup

I have been neglectful in posting about the continuing travails of Obamacare; real life demands mean less time for blogging. There is a lot of news to cover, and the news does remain bad for Obamacare fans. Let's start with what might be the next big problem for Obamacare: Obamacare’s rollout dented the Department of …
