Health Exchanges - Imposing Obamacare
"The ACA cannot be implemented without an insurance exchange in each state. It's a go or it's a no-go. It's that simple." - As Robert Laszewski, president of Health Policy and Strategy Associates, Sept 2012, HealthDay.
"The exchange is the foundation of health care...Without these exchanges we're really not going to reform anything." - Terry Gardiner, national policy director for the Small Business Majority in 2010.
** Although exchange supporters encourage insured individuals and families to try to find lower-cost taxpayer-subsidized coverage on the government exchange, there is no reason to change coverage if an individual or family currently has private health insurance that meets federal requirements.

ST. PAUL, Minn.—Twila Brase, president and co-founder of Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom (CCHF, www.cchfreedom.org), is in Washington, D.C., this week, awaiting the historic announcement of the Supreme Court’s decision on King v. Burwell. The landmark case will decide if federal Affordable Care Act (ACA) subsidies for health care coverage for residents in states without a state-based exchange are indeed lawful.
Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is correct. What matters in the pending ruling on the Obamacare premium subsidies lawsuit is “not what Congress would have wanted, but what Congress enacted.”
Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom Says One of 9 Exemptions Will Protect Americans from Tax Penalties
ST. PAUL, Minn.—Now well into the month of April, many Americans are scrambling to finish up the dreaded task of preparing their taxes. But there’s a special consideration for many—the Affordable Care Act and the tax penalties associated with going uninsured.
Obamacare is more than the subsidies and exchanges. At stake in the King v. Burwell Supreme Court case is whether the entire health care delivery and insurance system will be taken over by the federal government. THE HILL in Washington, D.C. published the op-ed by CCHF president Twila Brase on the Congress Blog: "Nine Obamacare takeover elements at stake in King v. Burwell."
ST. PAUL, Minn.—When the U.S. Supreme Court announces its ruling in the landmark Obamacare case King v. Burwell, millions of people could see their health freedom restored if the Court rules in favor of the plaintiffs.
