Consumers will be hit by increases in health insurance premiums averaging 10 percent or more in all but one of 14 states where regulators have approved higher rates.

In Vermont, insurance rates will rise by an average of 5.5 percent.

Insurance companies submitted their rate proposals for 2017 over the past few months. In the lead-up to Obamacare’s open enrollment period beginning Nov. 1, regulators have begun to approve or alter the requests.

The Obama administration said insurance premiums will rise by double-digit percentages in 2017, a statement that will likely bring the debate surrounding Obamacare to the forefront in the final days of the 2016 election.

Premiums will increase at an average of 25 percent across the 39 states serviced by the online marketplace HealthCare.gov, according to the Obama administration. Even worse, around 20 percent of consumers, or 1 in 5, will have only one insurer to choose from in the marketplace.

This year’s expected increase is triple the size of 2016, and will have a direct

Obama administration regulations are 167 times longer than the Bible

The number of pages of regulations issued by the federal government during the Obama presidency has hit a record high, according to a count from the Federal Register.

President Obama’s administration has issued 28,239 new final rules encompassing 201,046 pages in the Federal Register.

The over 200,000 pages of Obama regulations are 167 times longer than the Bible, which averages about 1,200 pages.

President Barack Obama’s speech Thursday will likely highlight the “successes” of Obamacare, but this complex health law—with interlocking parts—is really becoming more like a patient suffering from multi-organ failure.

This year’s feverish health insurance premiums are unlikely to abate. For 2017, the premiums on Obamacare’s individual market are projected to increase by 25 percent on average.

Central planning is the disease.

It starts with the costly health

Senate approves Argall’s efforts to crack down on welfare fraud

 

HARRISBURG – By a vote of 29 – 18, the Senate of Pennsylvania approved a measure authored by Senator David G. Argall (R-Schuylkill/Berks) to increase the number of investigators tasked with finding welfare waste, fraud, abuse and misuse.

 

Under Argall’s amendment, the Office of Inspector General (OIG) would hire at least 50 percent additional staff with a single purpose: investigate fraud, waste, misconduct and abuse claims from the Department of Human Services and Department of Health.

 

“For every dollar spent on welfare investigative and collective activities in the OIG, the state realizes an estimated benefit of $12,” Argall said. “This program would pay for itself again and again. More

Hillary Clinton’s tax proposals would increase taxes by $1.4 trillion over the next decade and would reduce the growth of the economy by 2.6 percent, according to ananalysis from the Tax Foundation.

Since January when the Tax Foundation first scored Clinton’s tax plan, Clinton has introduced a number of new taxes on individuals and businesses. At that time, the Foundation estimated that her plan would raise

$5.6 trillion.

That’s how much a recent report from the American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, estimates state and local governments across the U.S. have promised to their employees, but can’t afford to pay.

Normally, if an employer promises its workers more than it can pay, its workers lose out, but that’s unlikely to be the case here.

Since most state and local pension promises represent legal obligations, it will be state and local taxpayers who bear the burden of

Final Stretch

Share

Monday, October 24, 2016

Dear CF Friend,

Today begins the final three-day stretch of session before the election.

But a lot can happen in three days.

Pension reform remains a possibility. The Independent Fiscal Office is preparing to release its cost analysis of the latest proposal, which includes a side-by-side hybrid plan for new state employees. Once this happens, a conference committee can take up the legislation immediately.Meanwhile, a recent poll showed 54 percent of Pennsylvania voters favor placing new state employees in a 401(k)-style retirement plan. While the legislation under consideration doesn’t fully move new employees into a 401(k)-style plan, it’s a step toward improving the status quo. Legislation to save vape shops stalled in the House last week, but lawmakers could
