    This marks the 12th anniversary to the ... End of American Exceptionalism.

    All heads bowed, all eyes closed and we say a prayer to the god that has abandoned us.

    The Ruble Rouser Moves to Fix a 'Glitch' in the Affordable Care Act



    Biden's move would fix what is known as the “family glitch,” a loophole that has prohibited more than 5 million people from accessing
    subsidized health plans on the ACA marketplaces even if they don’t actually have other affordable options.

    “It’s a huge deal,” says Katie Keith, director of the Health Policy and the Law Initiative at Georgetown Law’s O’Neill Institute.
    “It’s one of the biggest things the Biden Administration can do on its own to expand coverage.”

    The fix, which the Administration can make on its own without relying on the Democrats’ slim majorities in Congress,
    represents Biden’s latest effort to use the ACA as a vehicle to lower costs and improve coverage for Americans.​

    not surprisingly,


    Number of uninsured Americans drops to an all-time low
    , as announced by the Dept of Health and Human Services.

    The findings come days after Democrats hammered out a 725-page climate, health care and tax deal that would extend generous federal subsidies for people who buy private health insurance that are credited with driving down the uninsured rates.

    Every Repug in the US Senate voted against this deal, which will extend the tax subsidy on health care insurance for another 3 years​

    Healthcare is not my industry, so I appreciate your perspective. This one observation resonates because I see the same thing in my own industry -- building a hybrid system doesn't give you the best of both worlds, it lands you between two stools. Whether its capitalism or socialism, it's probably more important to pick a single philosophy with everything about the market in harmony with that philosophy.
