Frankly, it's not so much nuance as it is putting a priority on getting the facts right. At the outset I asked why didn't CNN get the facts right. Given that their ratings remain in the tank despite new leadership, that question may not matter much longer.
As for the Obama-hugging Christie, who continues to thumb his nose at the crazies in his purview, I can hardly wait to see him at the 2016 debates squaring off against what is sure to be a crop of deranged opponents.
As the week began, another "Obamacare" horror story hit the press, instigating a fleet of outrage-pornographers to continue self-flagellating and screeching about the disastrous Affordable Care Act -- selectively forgetting about actual healthcare horror stories that existed before the law was implemented.
I love Jon Stewart, but sometimes he is too soft on Obama. This past week he has been critical of the Affordable Care Act rollout, but he chides as if...
There's a difference between government allowing certain actions with which we might disagree on moral grounds... as opposed to compelling them. That is the fine line that is religious liberty.
If I hadn't had superior health insurance, I would have died many years ago--a life cut short by a lack of access to health care. It makes me angry that millions of Americans cannot not share my good fortune.
Obamacare is not going to be repealed -- not now and not in the future. However, there is real risk it could collapse under its own weight. Whether or not you support this president, this could seriously harm the health of our citizens and America's fiscal stability.
Welcome back! Where were we? Oh, yes. You were trying to decide between all those plans which, on the surface, sound identical but, on closer inspection, are radically different. Are seeing and chewing important to you?
Okay, I get it. The Healthcare.gov website is still glitchy; there are evidently people who are losing their current health insurance plans; premiums continue to rise; and the Republicans along with irresponsible members of the press are blowing it entirely out proportion. Enough!
Tax rates fell on the wealthy after 1980, while their incomes skyrocketed. But how strong is the correlation between falling tax rates on the wealthiest among us and economic inequality?
When your mission statement aligns with Obamacare, and you get to make your patients feel empowered to manage their own health care coverage, that's a nice little love story on the health care playground.
Because all Medicare prescription drug plans can change their coverage and costs each calendar year, the only way to ensure you're getting the best coverage at the lowest cost is to compare your Part D plan against the competition during Medicare's open enrollment period.
The truth these politicians want to obscure is that Obamacare is protecting their constituents from buying coverage that provides little to no shield against financial ruin. And that protection is something the insurance industry wants to get rid of.
While our government may be open again, the doors to the robust economic recovery our country seeks remain welded shut.
As Republican members of Congress demand apologies and administration officials dutifully offer up mea culpas for the botched Obamacare rollout, wouldn't it be fair to expect just a morsel of apology from the right as well?
How about the top 1 percent overall, people with AGI's over $344,000? They paid an average of just over 24 percent. And the top 0.1 percent? Those with AGI's over $1.4 million? They paid 24 percent. Fascinating. The rate dropped the higher you went into the top 1 percent.
