Premiums rose an average of 25 percent this year for patients on the healthcare exchanges. Deductibles will average more than $6,000 in 2017 for those in the ACA's lowest-priced plans. A total of 4.7 million Americans have been kicked... Read more

This shows how out of line New York is in this regard. Mr. Cuomo has also forgotten that Governor Mario Cuomo made... Read more
