The following is a guest post by Tammy Cali, a senior advisor to the National Draft Ben Carson for President Committee.
America’s future has been put in jeopardy by increasing divisiveness across the country. Whether it is our political affiliations, religious beliefs, ideologies or socio-economic backgrounds, our nation is being weakened. We continue to focus on our differences and not what we have in common. Our leaders only exacerbate the problem. 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.
Dr. Ben Carson, in his latest book, “One Nation: What We Can All Do to Save America’s Future,” takes a hard look at these problems and provides a blue print for saving America.
It’s time to move beyond our differences and focus on pragmatic solutions to our problems. We need to learn how to treat each other with dignity. We can’t allow bigotry and closed-mindedness to poison our relationships with each other. Bigotry comes in many forms, from racism to sexism to ageism, and it is not exclusive to one group of people. Politically correct ideology fuels the fire by protecting certain groups and ideologies at the expense of others, all in the name of “sensitivity.” This is not respect but tyranny.Read more

On July 22, a Federal Appeals Court sided with Halbig, in the Halbig vs. Burwell case, which challenged the subsidies provided by the federal government to individuals who received insurance through the federal exchange. According to Politico, the ruling says that "millions of Americans cannot get subsidies to help pay for their health insurance through HealthCare.gov, the federal exchange serving most of the country. The court said those subsidies can only be given through the state-run exchanges".
This is just another blow for the Affordable Care Act following the Hobby Lobby vs. Burwell case that the Supreme Court ruled on last month. However, as controversial as the Hobby Lobby ruling was, it only pertained to a very small part of the ACA, this ruling strikes to the very heart of the legislation and could possibly make it null and void for the 34 states that opted out of creating their own exchange.Read more
