Jackie Gingrich Cushman:
Are We Sick of Him Yet?
We were sitting in a sunroom, swapping stories, news and updates when the question was asked, "Why did they get divorced?"

Healthcare.gov Works Great! (For a Government Website)

Obama Uses IRS to Eliminate His Enemies
“The power to tax involves the power to destroy,” the Supreme Court wrote in 1819, shortly after America began. Now in 2013, President Barack Obama is launching a frightening attack on free speech, using one of the most feared agencies in all the federal government: the Internal Revenue Service.

Obamacare's Next Problem: Doc Shock
"The bottom line is this law is working and will work into the future," President Barack Obama said of his signature Affordable Care Act on Tuesday.

How CNN Lost its Way
Let's be honest, no matter how one paints it or spins it, CNN is a news network in trouble. I can talk about this because I have known far too many former CNN leaders, anchors, and alumni to not know a little bit about the history of the company.
The Liars Club
It is now apparent that our president has lied to us. He lied when he crooned soothingly about improving the healthcare of millions of Americans through vast changes in health policy that would actually lower their costs. Those costs are now going up, and they are going up for almost everyone.

To Strike or Not to Strike? That is the Question
