Why Can’t North Carolina Residents Get Covered Under the ACA?

North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan has been noticeably quiet these days. Perhaps, if you were the person to cast a deciding vote for Obamacare and were facing a critical election, you might be too.

Good news about the Affordable Health Care Act doesn't seem to be coming anytime soon. In a CNBC interview last Wednesday, Aetna Chairman and CEO Mark Bertonlini said in reference to the ACA, “Getting everybody insured should probably be our goal, but you have to have a more affordable system.”

The Giver: A Movie Review

Imagine living in a world where everyone is equal and there are no differences. A world where every day you receive an injection that removes your ability to see color and suppresses any and all emotion. A world where every individual is given a specific task, and family units are assigned -- all because, “when people are given the freedom of choice, they choose wrong.”

I was told that the movie had strong Libertarian and Conservative messages and that it was pro-life. Given what I know about the producer, Jeff Bridges, I was skeptical but decided to go.

Dr. Ben Carson’s “One Nation” Provides Blueprint for America’s Future

Entrenched career politicians continue to seek reelection by appealing to their partisan base instead of focusing on fixing the nation’s problems. Congress’ approval rating continues to languish at low levels of 15 percent with the majority of American’s calling for drastic changes or a complete overhaul. It is time to take a hard look at our country and find a way to work together and put America back on top.
