Six years after its passage on a party-line vote, the Affordable Care Act remains controversial. However, six months before the Nov. 8 presidential election, expansion of Medicaid could become a pivotal issue among an important and growing voting bloc: Latinos.
Since the shift in U.S.-Cuban relations, recreational boaters from Florida have been literally racing to Havana.
Donald Trump is so reckless and unpredictable that he just might decide to select as his running mate Sheriff Joe Arpaio, the most dangerous law enforcement official in America. Indeed, Trump and Arpaio are soul-mates with much in common.
