Trump Admin Has a Plan to Bolster Private Insurance While Helping Small Businesses: 5 Things to Know About HRAs

President Donald Trump has a plan to bolster the private insurance market while helping small businesses provide coverage to their employees. Since the botched repeal of the Affordable Care Act, Republicans have been struggling to come up with a coherent policy on health care, prompting the Trump Administration to make changes of their own. The Trump administration took steps to expand Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRAs) as a health care option for employers. Here are five things to know about HRAs and Trump's plan to improve private health care in the United States. What are HR

Hoo boy: Two-thirds of Dems think they’d be able to keep their current insurance after Medicare For All passes

You would think the term "Medicare For All" would be a clue, but no. Next time a progressive shows you a poll "proving" that Americans want single-payer, inform him or her that Americans quite literally don"t know what they"re talking about . Which is another way of saying that we may have to enact socialism in order to find out what"s in it: The same poll found that Americans do understand that taxes will go up after Medicare For All passes and that private insurance would no longer be the "primary" way Americans get coverage. But they seem to have convinced themselves that private ins

The 2020 Twenty — Bill Weld

This is IJR's third segment of The 2020 Twenty. We're asking every 2020 presidential candidate 20 questions on their plans, policies, outlook, and background as well as some lighter ones to help our readers get to know the people and their personalities as they compete to run the country. There are several Republicans who have criticized President Donald Trump's rhetoric, but former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld is the only candidate trying to stop the president from the same side of the aisle. The 2020 election will not be the first time Weld's name will appear on a ballot against T

Florida’s summer of slime turned its politics upside down

It was a sweltering late summer day in southern Florida when Becky Harris took her dogs to run along the bank of the St. Lucie River. Her white Pomeranian, Pandora, was off leash while Kylie, her Rottweiler mix, trotted alongside her. Suddenly, Pandora took off down the grassy hill toward the beach and was soon tearing into a dead fish. Harris tried to yank it out of her mouth, but Pandora bolted under the sea grapes to polish it off. Within hours, the normally bouncy Pandora was so lethargic that her head fell into her water bowl. Harris took Pandora to the closest veterinary ER, where the l

Biden: If you think you can’t work with the other side, you might as well start a physical revolution

Literally every liberal and conservative activist watching this clip is thinking, "Time for a revolution then, I guess." Biden has given variations of this answer repeatedly over the last month, insisting that bipartisanship in Washington is still possible, all conventional wisdom to the contrary notwithstanding. I - ; kind of think he believes it. It"s the sort of thing he would say even if he didn"t believe it since he"s counting on centrists to be his base and centrists love hearing well-meaning claptrap about reaching across the aisle. But after decades of writing legislation in the

Biden: Obama ‘Had No Time to Explain the Affordable Care Act’

Joe Biden claimed Monday that former President Barack Obama had "no time to explain the Affordable Care Act" because of the volume of problems he encountered in his presidency. The former vice president's comments were off the cuff, but they still belied the fact that Obama campaigned for re-election in 2012 on his signature health care law, also known as Obamacare, and held countless town halls and speeches about it before and after its passage in 2010. Those remarks included constant promises that no one would lose their preferred doctor or insurance under the law. Biden was one of 10 Demo

Biden Proposes Universal Medicaid Coverage

2020 Democratic presidential candidate and former vice president Joe Biden said Monday that as president he would expand access to Medicaid to the entire country. Speaking at the Poor People’s Campaign Presidential Forum in Washington, D.C., Biden offered up a sweeping but unspecific proposal for health-care reform. "I think everyone’s entitled to have total health care," Biden said. "And what I would do is make sure that every single person — as I propose — every single person in the United States has access to Medicaid right off the bat." Medicaid is a means-tested federal and state pro

SCOTUS Punts on Gay Wedding Cake, Nun Cases

The United States Supreme Court on Monday avoided taking action on two potentially inflammatory cases that touched on issues of religious liberty. The first case, Klein v. Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries , concerned a pair of Oregon bakers who cited religious objections in declining to bake a cake for a lesbian couple's wedding in 2013, PBS reports . The baker couple, Melissa and Aaron Klein, were obliged to pay Rachel Bowman-Cryer $135,000 in restitution after refusing to provide a cake for her wedding, a finding that an Oregon appellate court upheld.

High court, chief justice face upcoming tests

Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. began the Supreme Court"s term last fall seeking to assure the American public that his court does not "serve one party or one interest." He will end it playing a pivotal role in two of the most politically consequential decisions the court has made in years. One initiative is to include a citizenship question in the 2020 Census, which has fueled a partisan showdown on Capitol Hill. The other could outlaw the partisan gerrymandering techniques that were essential to Republican dominance at the state and congressional level over the past decade. The politically

Who can afford California?

It"s always trite to complain about taxes and the intrusion of government into private lives, but if you are one of the now-unfortunates who lives in California, you have every right to complain. The reality of it all is that it will only get worse, especially now that the state has a new liberal-to-the core Democrat governor, Gavin Newsom, and that every single state office is inhabited by a Democrat. To say that Republicans are out-numbered in the Senate and Assembly is the understatement of the year. To assume it will only get worse over the next years is probably a sure bet. The headli

Capitalism Versus Democracy

It was always just a matter of time before the reemergence of establishment Democrats reminded people why they were booted from power in 2016. As ugly as Donald Trump is and as not constructive as his tenure in the White House has been, the Democratic establishment would rather lose with establishment candidates and retrograde policies than loosen its grip on its service to the oligarchs. Phrased differently, if Democrats cared about ‘defeating Trump,’ they would offer programs that people want. But they are so firmly in the grip of corporate interests and the oligarchs that they won’t do so.

Hey, Biden! Here are some scandals you forgot

"Know what I was most proud of?" presidential candidate Joe Biden told a crowd on Wednesday. "For eight years, there wasn"t one single hint of a scandal or a lie." In an era where every presidential tweet is an existential threat to democracy, there are probably plenty of people who believe this myth. Off the bat, though, it should be mentioned that even liberal fact-checking outfit PolitiFact once awarded Barack Obama the "Lie of Year" for misleading the American people about his technocratic health care plan. Obama"s most famous lie, of course, upturned millions of lives. Without it, it"s
