Medicare for all will cripple doctors and hospitals

Americans have health on their minds. Nearly four in 10 voters think health care is the most important policy issue our country faces.
Some lawmakers -- including several Democratic presidential candidates -- think a government takeover of the nation’s health insurance system is the answer.
But Medicare for All isn’t what voters are looking for. It would drive doctors from the profession and cripple hospitals. Fewer of America’s brightest students will pursue medicine. Ultimately, Medicare for All would make it harder for patients to gain access to care.

Democrats in Disarray

During the eight years Barack Obama served as President of the United States, the Democratic Party was united. He was the coalescing force that held the party together. By bringing in Hillary Clinton as his Secretary of State at the start of his administration, Obama healed the wounds from the bruising 2008 presidential race. During his re-election campaign of 2012, Obama was not challenged for the Democratic presidential nomination and he won another term as President.

Happy (In)dependence Day

July 4th is always the time of year for red-blooded, patriotic Americans to fire up the grill, throw the kids around in the pool, wave a few flags and shoot off some fireworks… all in the name of celebrating the fact that we live in the greatest nation the world has ever seen.
Yes, without question, America is the greatest nation. There are no asterisks on that statement. Don’t let anyone tell you any different.
