My RedState post on California blaming UnitedHealth Group.

Found here. Short version: nothing is ever Obamacare’s fault. Or California’s. Never ever ever.

My RedState post on Obamacare deadlines.

Found here. Short version: I dunno.  “I told you so?”  Yeah, that works.  I told you so.

My RedState post on Obamacare signup estimates.

Found here. Short version: they’re sharply reducing estimated 2016 signups.  And why not? Obama’s out of office in less than a year anyway.

My RedState post on the NYT catching up to RS on Obamacare.

Found here. Short version: the NYT finally deigned to let their readers know that the individual mandate enforcement process was broken. Took ’em long enough…

My RedState post on Obamacare spam is now up.

Found here.  Short version: yeah, they’re sending out spam emails now trying to get people to sign up. Because it’s never been a better time to buy a healthcare policy that you don’t need at a price you can’t afford.

Interesting set of survey results here on Kentucky, Obamacare, and Kynect.

Very short version?  Kentuckians hate Obamacare, want to keep Kynect, don’t want to cut back Medicaid… and yet, they just decisively elected a guy who only agrees with them on the first point.  If not-going-to-be-Governor Jack Conway is reading this article, it’s probably with a bottle of bourbon in his fist.

Meanwhile, Matt Bevin? He’s probably reading it and shrugging.  The people of Kentucky did elect him, after all. And it’s not like they didn’t know what he was going to be doing, right?

My RedState piece on a looming Obamacare co-op disaster is up.

Found here. Short version: hospitals may end taking a bath on Obamacare in some states. Blame the Democrats, of course.

Obamacare’s Cadillac Tax will probably be the first thing to go.

This test vote is pretty glaring: “The Senate voted overwhelmingly on Thursday to repeal ObamaCare’s “Cadillac tax” on high-cost health plans, a rare area of bipartisan agreement around the healthcare law.” By overwhelmingly the Hill means… well, overwhelmingly: 90-10, to be precise. It’s an amendment to the Senate bill repealing Obamacare, which means that it’s probably not going to actually take place just yet. After all, the general assumption is that Barack Obama will veto the repeal, and 55 Senators does not equal 67. Nonetheless; it’s a big signal that the current crop of Democrats aren’t quite as eager to die for Obamacare as the last few crops were. To quote Larry Niven: think of it as evolution in action.

Also, I love the picture that the Hill chose.

They’re getting tired of this guy, too.

My RedState post on UnitedHealthCare and Obamacare is up.

Found here. Short version… well, I’m in a bad mood tonight, so at least I got to take it out on somebody that deserved it. And God knows health care insurers deserve to be yelled at.

My other RedState post on UHC maybe dropping out of Obamacare is up.

Found here.  Short version: United Healthcare is publicly considering getting out of the Obamacare exchanges. Even that much was enough to have health insurers’ stocks freak out.

Democrats desperately trying to quietly kill their inane ‘Cadillac tax.’

This is a tough call to make: “Congressional Democrats led by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi are quietly working to repeal the “Cadillac tax,” a 40 percent excise on certain expensive health-insurance policies enacted as part of the so-called Affordable Care Act, which grows less affordable by the minute.” (more…)

My RedState post on Obamacare and the War on Nuns.

Found here. Short version: it’s a bad idea to go after nuns.  But apparently since the geniuses over at the White House absolutely had to give it the old college try – and over abortion, no less! – the Supreme Court is going to have to straighten this whole mess out.  Huzzah.
