Six Ways to Make Health Care Affordable

 

As Congress looks to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare, many are asking how to make health care affordable for Americans. Across the nation, Obamacare increased the number of people holding insurance cards but failed to increase access to quality and affordable health services. For many, the cost of health care […]

How and Why Obamacare Repeal Will Succeed

 

The tsunami of criticism that greeted last week’s introduction of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) was probably inevitable, considering the questionable character of some career politicians, the liberal inclination of the legacy media, and the hopelessly convoluted maze of mandates, taxes, and regulations that is Obamacare. Even honest observers got important details of AHCA […]

Transgenderism and the Power of a Parent

 

The latest leftist “it” accessory these days is not a choker for women or man-bun for (kinda) men. It’s not even designer embryos with pruned-to-perfection DNA being carried by a sturdy middle class woman with financial troubles. If a leftist wants to be gasp-out-loud edgy and in, she and she or she and he simply must […]

About the Transgendered Wrestler Competing Against Girls

 

A Texas girl enhanced with the hormones that build muscle mass, strength, and quickness won her state’s wrestling title, and people cheered. Some booed. Some girls forfeited, rather than wrestle in an unfair match, because testosterone and other steroids give an unfair advantage to athletes — which is why they’re banned in all sports. They’re […]

Death Panels: Obamacare IPAB Repeal Can’t Wait Three Years

 

For some reason, Republicans want to delay Obamacare repeal for three years. The Manhattan Project detonated the world’s first nuclear bomb in less time, but the U.S. healthcare industry supposedly needs 36 months to go back to how things were six years ago. The real issue seems to be that Republicans can’t agree with each […]

Surgeon General Gets It Wrong on E-Cigarettes

 

Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy got it wrong. Contrary to the claims in this week’s highly publicized report, e-cigarettes and other vapor devices are not a threat to the health of youth, young adults, pregnant women or anyone else. The evidence — but not the narrative — presented in the surgeon general’s e-cigarette report supports […]

Good News for Chubby Men

 

While being a spornosexual (metrosexuals are so last year) may be the “it” thing, if men want to live longer, they’ll proudly carry around a belly: Pudgy older fathers live longer, are more attractive to the opposite sex and are better at passing on their genes than their leaner counterparts, scientists have claimed. Becoming fatter after […]

War Over Contact Lenses Tricks Consumers, Treats Optometrists

 

It’s Halloween season, which means it’s that time every year when the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) tries to spook consumers out of wearing costume or decorative contact lenses. According to the FTC’s annual guidance, noncorrective cosmetic lenses can be pretty scary, especially when purchased illegally from an unauthorized retailer or without a prescription from an […]

Obamacare Fails, Again

 

Pennsylvanians shopping on the health care exchange are in for a rude awakening. This week, the state Insurance Department announced premiums for individual plans will increase by an average of 32 percent. The largest hike is for Highmark customers, who will see a 55 percent jump in premiums. Nine companies requested rate increases of more […]

Why the Medical Profession Ignores Negative Pill Research

 

New research confirms that The Pill, and other female hormonal contraceptives, increases a woman’s chance of becoming depressed (and suffer other mood disorders). Women know this obvious fact. It is a source of great consternation because married women, especially, seek a birth control method that isn’t permanent, but isn’t annoying or has harmful side effects. After […]
