ON-Lion Letter

In January, the Galen Institute in Alexandria, Va., released an updated version of its list of significant changes made to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or "Obamacare," by either the Obama administration, the U.S. Congress, or the U.S. Supreme Court.

The list includes four additional changes made by the administration, most of them contrary to statutory language.  By Galen's count, more than 46 significant changes already have been made to Obamacare -- at least 28 that President Barack Obama has made unilaterally, 16 that Congress has passed and the President has signed, and two by the Supreme Court.

Among the latest additions:

•    More than 300,000 people in Massachusetts gained temporary Medicaid coverage in 2014 without any verification of their eligibility, with the Obama and Patrick administrations using a taxpayer-funded bailout to mask the failure of the Commonwealth’s disastrously malfunctioning website.
 
•    A U.S. General Accounting Office report found that many exchange insurance plans don't separate charges for abortion services as required by the ACA, showing that the administration is not enforcing the law.  In 2014, abortions were being financed with taxpayer funds in more than 1,000 exchange plans.

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports the Galen Institute.
