Contrary to the claim of Obamacare’s supporters, patients have too much access to healthcare. When insurers cover most of our bills, we’re encouraged to take every test and procedure our doctors recommend, regardless of their value. Obamacare has made this problem even worse by banning out-of-pocket fees for many services. The push to overuse medical care is not only wasteful, it’s dangerous to our health.
When we walk into a hospital, we have access to a cornucopia of different tests, procedures, and specialists. What we will hardly ever see is how much all of this costs. When insurers pay most of the bill, patients have no incentive to find the best deal, and hospitals are more than happy to keep their cost hidden. Now a revolution is underway to pull back the veil on what hospitals are charging.

Following the Supreme Court’s creative reading of Obamacare in its King v. Burwell decision, politicians rejoiced, including those in Wyoming. Governor Matt Mead said in a Press Release:
“This decision allows 17,000 people in Wyoming to continue to receive a tax credit for health insurance and avoids many potential complications of those individuals losing that credit. Simply stated, this ruling maintains the status quo.”
After months of anticipation, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Obama Administration in King v. Burwell and upheld the IRS’s authority to issue insurance subsidies on the federal insurance exchange as part of Obamacare. This decision gives cover to the abuses of an out-of-control agency and allows it to continue punishing Wyoming through the individual and employer mandate.
