Harry R. Jackson, Jr. Harry R. Jackson, Jr.: ACA Does Not Help the Nation’s Poor!

Now that the ACA has been in effect for a few months, the unintended consequences of the law are becoming clearer. Initially, the obvious problem was that far more insurance plans were being canceled under the ACA’s regulations than were being selected in the exchanges. This seemed to defeat the ACA’s goal of expanding healthcare coverage. The higher premiums that younger healthier adults were being charged to subsidize the care of those who were older or who had preexisting health conditions also attracted a lot of attention. But not much has been made of the ACA’s effect on the segment of population it was supposed to help the most: the poor.

Donald Lambro Donald Lambro: The Bystander Presidency Still Running On Empty

President Obama has been trying to look busy in recent weeks, giving speeches to rally his dispirited party as he voices new fears that Democrats will not turn out to vote in the midterm congressional elections in November. Apparently, many of them won't.

Larry Provost Larry Provost: NY Times Veteran’s Discrimination

A recent NY Times editorial, authored by an academic student, says that Vietnam Veterans are behind white supremacist groups, ostensibly due to their military training. Such an editorial was a poorly disguised, and poorly researched, attempt at hiding a political agenda behind academia.

Dave Ramsey Dave Ramsey: Dave Says: Forget the Kid’s College Fund; Save for Retirement First

Having a college fund set aside by your parents is really nice, if they can afford that kind of thing. But you can go to school by getting good grades, applying for scholarships, working your tail off and choosing a school you can afford. In short, college funding is not a necessity.

Joanne  Moudy Joanne Moudy: The HHS Mandate: It’s All or Nothing
