Ethanol For Our Own Good?
There are a number of similarities between Obamacare and an energy mandate known as the "renewable fuel standard."
Four Reasons Why Obamacare Will Fail No Matter What Its Website Does
A closer look at the uninsured numbers raises real questions about just how many people will participate.
Physician Plots Escape From 'Obamacare Noose'
IPI's Matthews noted Obamacare's expected 24 percent cut in Medicaid reimbursements coming Jan. 1. That issue has reared its head repeatedly, and each time Congress has stepped in to fix it by spending more money, but that can’t continue forever, he said.
Doctors Face A 24% Pay Cut In Both Medicare And Medicaid Reimbursements
It’s yet another unforeseen consequence of Obamacare. And unless Congress acts, we’re likely to see a huge exodus of doctors who will not accept either Medicare or Medicaid patients.

Why JFK was kind of a crappy President
Polls regularly put Kennedy in the top 10 U.S. presidents and a recent Politico poll ranking the best presidents since 1950 has him in first place.
