Sadly, the American middle-class has recently suffered some major setbacks in its attempt to regain economic stability. Still struggling in today's e...
The Affordable Care Act is likely to dominate the political debate leading up to the national midterm elections. The Republican message will concentrate on popular dissatisfaction with the law, but it appears there will be little talk about a practical alternative.
Astonishingly, the Republicans have simply taken the provisions of Obamacare and made them temporary -- and called it "reform"! We'll give you fair prices, but only for a little while. We'll require you to sign up for insurance, but only until you back out.
Peter Hart, chairman of Peter D. Hart Research and Bill McInturff, CEO of Public Opinion Strategies, held court at the Ritz-Carlton in Washington on w...
To put treatment within reach to all pregnant women and newborns, we need to fix our broken healthcare system, and we need reproductive justice.
While it is true that the dominant provisions of the ACA (particularly, the Employer Mandate) apply only to "large" employers with more than 50 employees, there are still several provisions that affect all employers, including small businesses with 50 employees or fewer.
Even if a person doesn't qualify for an ACA health plan, you -- and by "you" I mean everyone -- still get the benefits of the new law. And much of this has very real, and very substantive financial savings -- just not the financial savings you read about in the news about monthly bills.
The GOPers in the House are going for the gold -- voting for the 50th time to repeal Obamacare! There are so many pending issues that need attention ...

Addiction is everywhere, help is more available, and you have friends and/or family who care about you. Take the first steps today to know your risks and find solutions for a better tomorrow.
Although the name "Obamacare" focuses attention on the President, his administration, and the federal bureaucracy, state actions will also be determinants of the success of the ACA.
While it is true that the dominant provisions of the Affordable Care Act apply only to so-called "medium" and "large" employers, there are still several provisions that affect all employers, including small businesses with 50 employees or fewer.
It's no wonder that Republicans have pinned all of their hopes for the mid-terms on the proposition that the botched Obamacare roll-out would sour the public on the signal accomplishment of President Obama's first term. But once again, the Republicans are on the wrong side of history.
I hate to think what may happen if the GOP take over the Senate in 2014. The economy may still recover but it will take much longer to come back because there will be unending nothingness happening and the working poor will suffer even further.
There is no doubt that ACA was a well-intentioned act meant to improve care and lower costs, but the provisions above could prevent some of the most seriously mentally ill from geting care.
