Direct Primary Care’s Promise

Progressives constantly frame the debate over healthcare reform as a false choice: should healthcare be financed through insurance companies or the government?  Both options leave patients at the mercy of third parties.

Now an alternative known as Direct Primary Care promises to put the patient back in the driver’s seat.  The patient pays a flat monthly fee or retainer, and in exchange, physicians provide primary care services.  These services include checkups, urgent care, and chronic care management.

Medicaid Expansion Is An Empty Promise

When progressives make the case for Medicaid Expansion, without fail they remind their listeners that the federal government has pledged to cover 90 percent of the cost of expansion. But a report from the Foundation for Government Accountability sheds light on just how empty the federal government’s promises really are. On multiple occasions, the federal government has reneged on its commitments to cover the cost of programs it collaborates with states to fund, leaving them with billions of dollars in additional obligations. And while the Obama Administration has continued to market Medicaid Expansion as “free money” to the state legislatures, the White House has proposed changes to Medicaid’s cost-sharing formula that would substantially increase the proportion of the program’s expenses that states will be stuck paying.

The Urgent Case for School Choice in Wyoming

In writing a piece about why school choice is the right choice for parents in Wyoming I could start by reciting a whole slew of numbers regarding graduation rates, college enrollment, academic achievement and taxpayer savings. These figures are readily available everywhere and have been discussed for years by those in the education world.

For instance, I could tell you that according to the US Department of Education Report, Evaluation of the DC Opportunity Scholarship Program, students who used the voucher program graduated at a rate of 91%, which is 30% higher than the graduation rate of students in the D.C. Public Schools.
