Obamacare Repeal vs. Reality

March 22, 2017 - 6:00am

The attempt by House Speaker Paul Ryan and other powerful Republicans to “repeal and replace” the Affordable Care Act (ACA or “Obamacare”) has run into a buzz saw of opposition from both sides. Most proponents of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) concede that the Act is “not perfect.” But there is “political reality” to consider—what can make it through the congressional sausage-making machine?

How ‘Ceremonial’ Mayor Gillum Shot Himself in Both Feet

March 20, 2017 - 12:00pm

An ironic thing happened on the way to the Democratic nomination for governor for Tallahassee’s “ceremonial” Mayor Andrew Gillum.

As a result, a complaint has been filed with 2nd Judicial Circuit State Attorney Jack Campbell, who has asked that new Leon County Sheriff Walt McNeil investigate the charge.

Thank you, President Trump, for Acting on Flawed WOTUS Rule

March 6, 2017 - 6:00am

The President issued an executive order last week calling for the Environmental Protection Agency to review and revise the indefensible U.S. Army Corps if Engineers and EPA rule redefining “waters of the United States” (WOTUS) subject to federal control under the Clean Water Act. I can think of a no more qualified candidate for regulatory rollback than this infamous rule.
