Obamacare Insurer Lost $57.6 Million in First Half of 2017

Oscar Insurance Corp. is hemorrhaging money on the Obamacare state exchanges, posting a $57.6 million loss in the first half of 2017. Oscar is a health insurance startup that primarily sells Obamacare insurance plans, but the company has consistently had trouble making its business profitable. The company lost $57.6 million thus far in 2017 in Texas, New York, and California, down from an $83 million loss in the first half of 2016. To mitigate some of its 2016 losses, Oscar, like many other health insurance providers, reduced its exposure to the Obamacare state exchanges in 2017. The company raised premiums and lowered the number of doctors and hospitals within its network. Oscar does plan to expand offerings in more states in 2018, citing plans to enter the Ohio, New Jersey, and Tennessee marketplaces. Major health … Read entire article »

Some Bad Ideas, Like Zombies, Never Seem to Die. A ‘No First Use’ Nuclear Policy Is One of Them.

Some argue that the United States should declare a “no first use” nuclear weapons policy. This would mean that the United States would only use a nuclear weapon in response to another country’s nuclear attack. Proponents of this idea generally argue that an adoption of this policy would get us closer to a world without nuclear weapons. Such optimism couldn’t be further away from the truth. A no-first-use nuclear weapons policy would make the United States and allies less safe from devastating attacks. To assume that the only utility of nuclear weapons is to retaliate after a nuclear attack is to ignore historical experience. The United States used nuclear weapons in 1945 to bring an end to the most devastating conflict in the modern history of mankind. That conflict, World War II, was fought predominantly with … Read entire article »

Where Is the Corporate Disavowal of Black Lives Matter?

Liberal business executives are leaping like lemmings from President Donald Trump’s manufacturing advisory council. Good riddance. These silly string-spined CEOs have sided with social justice agitators, Beltway media enablers, and Democratic resistance knuckleheads who believe Trump was wrong to condemn violence and hatred on all sides of the political spectrum. Never mind that of the four people arrested after the violent outbreak in Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend, two were identified with the white nationalist movement and the other two were left-wing “Antifa” counterprotesters. One of those radical leftists is the man identified as having reportedly punched a female reporter for the D.C.-based newspaper The Hill. But since that doesn’t fit the national media narrative of journalists allegedly being victimized by right-wing incitements to violence, mum’s the word from corporate media executives and the rest … Read entire article »

America Is Heading Straight Into Its Most Avoidable Crisis Ever

America Is Heading Straight Into Its Most Avoidable Crisis Ever

In the looming shadow of another debt limit debate, Congress should stand firm and demand spending controls before increasing the debt limit again. Most people are familiar with the tragic story of the Titanic. Like the iceberg that sank the grand ship, the United States is facing what is perhaps the largest and most avoidable crisis in its history—the U.S. federal debt. The crew of the Titanic chose to ignore warnings of the danger ahead. Congress must … Read entire article »
