Some people think aiming to lose 175 pounds is insane. For me, it is the only way to get there. When I've set "impossible" goals in a business setting, I've always made them. I get excited and motivated. Small goals don't interest me at all.
Millennials are openly defying the government mandate and thumbing their noses at legislators who continue to ignore the issues critical to young Americans. They're fed up with government forcing them to pay for the poor financial decisions of previous generations.
This isn't what Democrats are saying Republicans are going to do. This is what Republicans are saying Republicans are going to do.
If you prefer fiction to fact, think a collapsing economy is preferable to an improving economy, and that the superrich should keep getting more of the nation's income and wealth, vote Republican.
Two campaign claims are being made in Colorado's U.S. senate race about the Affordable Care Act and seniors. Political ads are often designed to scare or anger people rather than inform them, and that sure seems to be the case here.
As we head into the final stretch before next week's midterm elections, Americans continue to have wide-ranging views of Obamacare, but even many who have an unfavorable view of it say they would rather see Congress improve it than get rid of it.
Despicable. That's the only word for it. I refer to the recent official email "Responding to the Ebola Crisis" of October 17 from my congressional representative, Bob Goodlatte, of Virginia's 6th District.
Michael Carvin, the lead attorney in this round of attacks on the ACA, apparently expects the Supreme Court to play along with him. But he might have trouble convincing the justices to join his game.
Misconceptions about the Ebola problem have spread more rapidly than a tropical fever. In the interest of clarifying the situation, here are a number of points that need to be made.
The small business community, including self-employed and micro-businesses, welcomed a major benefit this tax year: a new, streamlined IRS home office standardized deduction.
Without Medicaid, millions of Americans must delay getting care because they are afraid of incurring costs they cannot afford. In states that rejected expansion, low-income people often rely on hospitals for emergency and other needed care.
Regardless of where you live, you should check out those rankings before selecting your insurance carrier for 2015. You'll find that, just as in California, the nonprofits lead the pack and the for-profits are eating their dust.
Income inequality is killing the economy. Retailers, bankers and Democrats agree on that. Really. It's only Republicans who continue to insist that income inequality is great.
Our health care system is in crisis, and believe it or not, the worst is yet to come. The same policies that devastated the individual insurance market last year will begin to hit the employer-provided market in January as large companies are forced into Obamacare
We appear now to be in a period of perpetually slender majorities.The American Congress is more or less split and will still be after this November's mid-terms, regardless of the technical outcome. Maybe it's not about victory... or policy... Maybe we need the "great innovation" that works regardless of division.
The medical pundits are wagging fingers and lecturing everyone about how best to manage this crisis. (Lecturing, that is, from the relative calm and safety of television studios, rather than the in the mind-numbing chaos of the ER.)
