Dr. Marilyn Singleton: April 16th begins a week of National Healthcare Decisions Days. Hopefully, this week will encourage honest discussions not only about a so-called “good death” but the value of an individual’s life.
Dr. Marilyn Singleton: Congress, please act on a few simple reforms that will help everyone and hurt no one—except the drug lobbies and middlemen.
Jason Schultz: The (Un)Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as Obamacare, has wreaked havoc on our health care and health insurance industries. Policies disappeared, carriers pulled out of Iowa, and government meddling has caused policies to be much more expensive and yet, provide less coverage.
Dr. G. Kevin Smith: Not only is “coverage” not equivalent to “care,” “coverage” can and many times does create a barrier to care.
Dr. Marilyn Singleton: ObamaCare’s individual mandate is dead. It’s time to use our healthcare dollars wisely and pay for the medical care, not the middlemen.
Shane Vander Hart: Depending on who you ask the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (H.R. 1) that Congress passed this week will usher in the apocalypse or it is the best thing since sliced bread.
A group of 67 national and state pro-life groups in a letter to Congress warned them to not pass an Obamacare prop-up bill without Hyde Amendment language.
Dr. Marilyn Singleton: The Affordable Care Act produced an unrecognizable version of insurance. The ACA and its health care reform progeny must go.

Shane Vander Hart and Chris Jacobs discuss President Donald Trump’s healthcare executive order and the Alexander-Murray deal to address healthcare subsidies.
Kelvey Vander Hart: Conservatives getting their feathers ruffled by NFL protests during the National Anthem is an absolute waste of their time.
Former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum discusses the Graham-Cassidy Bill with Shane Vander Hart. He says it will effectively repeal and replace Obamacare.
A new GOP bill repeals the structure of Obamacare and replaces it with an annual block grant given to states to help individuals pay for health care.
G. Keith Smith, M.D.: Americans perceive the contempt that elites have for those on whom they would inflict medical care they would never stand for themselves.
