Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee appeared on Hannity Monday to discuss the Democrat’s voting bill with host Sean Hannity and Fox coanchor Kayleigh McEnany. This came after former representative Stacey Abrams changed her own opinion on the bill by 180 degrees.

Even though Abram’s change of opinion was dramatic, Hannity pointed out that there’s been very little media coverage on it. Huckabee claimed journalists’ bias is to blame.

“The simple answer to that, Sean, is that journalists today no longer consider themselves the referees of the game calling balls and strikes and trying to really make sure the game is played fairly,” the former governor said. “They put on a team Jersey and their own team, Biden, their own team left. They go to the field not to report the news, but create the news. And to shield the average American from the news.”

“The stuff that’s going on right now about Stacey Abrams and finding out she will support Joe Manchin’s bill and voter ID,” Huckabee went on. “She’s got more flip-flops than a Jimmy Buffett concert, for heaven sakes. There is no credibility and that’s why people have so little respect or even confidence whatsoever in the media anymore.”

Elizabeth Warren Acknowledges Unintended Consequences of Obamacare



Elizabeth Warren

Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a longtime supporter of the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, is now acknowledging the unintended consequences of the healthcare legislation, particularly its impact on industry consolidation and rising healthcare prices.

Warren, who has been a vocal proponent of Obamacare, has recently had what the Wall Street Journal reported as an “epiphany” regarding the consequences of the healthcare law. In a letter addressed to the Health and Human Services Department inspector general, Warren, along with Senator Mike Braun of Indiana, expressed concerns about vertically-integrated healthcare companies potentially increasing prescription drug costs and evading federal regulations.

According to reports from Fox News, the bipartisan letter highlighted issues with the nation’s largest health insurers allegedly bypassing Obamacare’s medical loss ratio (MLR). According to Warren, these insurers, through vertical integration, have manipulated the system, leading to “sky-high prescription drug costs and excessive corporate profits.”

The senators detailed how conglomerates, like UnitedHealth Group, with ownership across various healthcare sectors, could inflate medical payments to pharmacies and, by realizing those payments on the pharmacy side, appear to comply with MLR requirements while retaining more profits.

Moreover, despite the Democrats’ argument that the MLR would benefit patients, it has incentivized insurers to merge with or acquire pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), retail and specialty pharmacies, and healthcare providers. This, in turn, has made healthcare spending less transparent, as insurers can allegedly shift profits to their affiliates by increasing reimbursements.

Warren, who has consistently voted against Obamacare repeal efforts, notably advocated for a “Medicare for All” proposal during her 2020 presidential campaign. Despite her prior support for the healthcare law, Warren’s recent concerns about its unintended consequences have raised questions about the long-term effects of Obamacare and its impact on the healthcare industry.
