In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, editor and author of the Consumer Power Report, Justin Haskins joins New Media Specialist Donny Kendal to discuss the upcoming troubles for Obamacare and the proposed plan to create a single-payer healthcare system in the state of Colorado.
In the latest edition of the Consumer Power Report – a weekly report which offers a brief analysis of the top health care stories for the week, Haskins explains how many returning to the insurance exchanges are in for a rude awakening. insurance premiums are expected to raise significantly. On top of this, hundreds of thousands are likely to lose their federal subsidies that help pay for their mandated insurance because they failed to file last years tax return.
Haskins and Kendal also discuss a proposed statewide universal healthcare plan that will appear on the ballot in the elections of November. This plan would be the first of its kind. While a similar plan was started in Vermont, this fell apart quickly when the costs were calculated.
