Every tax season is unique and 2016 is shaping up to be one for the record books. We dodged a bullet with the new tax law legislation that passed "ea...
Democrats are down to a head-to-head contest, which was on full display last night. Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders made their respective cases fairly well, and the jostling between them for position was notable.
Act affirmatively. Change the nation's therapeutic order in pain care. What a fine legacy -- for people in pain and for health care in the United States.
The President's 2017 budget will recommend improvements in the "Cadillac tax" -- the excise tax on high-cost health insurance plans. While some suggest repealing the tax, reforming it to preserve most of its revenues and its ability to slow health care cost growth makes far more sense.
With these taxes now postponed or suspended, policymakers could well start to treat them like other temporary tax provisions that they routinely extend -- effectively making the delays permanent.
Despite pop culture opinions, and even if you've filed your own tax return in the past, this year, the smart move is talking to a tax professional before you file your tax return.
Some critics cite the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimates of enrollment in health reform's marketplaces to argue that health reform is losing ...
Yeah, he said that last night at a rally in Des Moines, specifically addressing "the school-aged kids" in the audience. Cute, right?
Sanders proposes a health care system like Canada's, where health care for everyone is just as good at half the price because the middleman, Big Insurance, has been cut out of the picture.

There's no getting around it. The content of certain blog posts just naturally turns all of us otherwise placid people into vitriol-spewing troglodytes, so I imagine this one is really going to set the comment-o-sphere ablaze.
If we end up in gridlock while discussing single payer, the Affordable Care Act remains in place. Surely Secretary Clinton knows this. Surely anyone who has even the slightest clue about how laws work in this country knows this. Yet she seems to be telling voters something different.
Bring up healthcare to a business owner and watch her eyes begin to mist over. That's usually because talking about the Affordable Care Act is like discussing Shakespeare.
Yes the Affordable Care Act passed, as did Dodd-Frank, the stimulus bill, and a host of other important measures he described in his speech. But somewhere along the line the Obama realignment collapsed, dead by 2010. Why?
Naturally, my bill was an outrageous amount in the hundreds of dollars. Hundreds of dollars for under ten minutes of total examination/procedure time. Again, insurance covered the majority of the charge, but when will enough be enough?
In just two years, health reform's Medicaid expansion has helped states make big gains in health coverage, increase access to health care services amo...
