When Donald Trump was running for president, one of his most prominent campaign promises declared that he would “repeal and replace Obamacare.” That may not be happening now. In fact, it seems very likely that while there may be some modifications to the Affordable Care Act, the law itself will remain intact. Trump has actually been saying for some time now that he has every intention of hanging on to two of Obamacare’s most notable provisions – the ability of adult children to remain on their parents’ plans, and the mandate that insurance companies must make coverage available to those...

By Robert G. Yetman, Jr. Editor At Large UnitedHealth Group CEO Stephen Hemsley has declared that the company made a poor decision when it ventured further this year into the various, state-based, public insurance exchanges that exist largely to serve the Affordable Care Act. UnitedHealth sold coverage on just four exchanges in 2014, but upped that to 24 exchanges for 2015. The larger embrace of the ACA, overall, has caused the company to suffer substantial financial losses this year, significant enough that it has had to adjust its earnings forecast downward. At this point, Hemsley is undecided about whether UnitedHealth... Read more →

Jon E Mica, author of The Autistic Holocaust and father of an autistic son, speaks out on the connection between autism and vaccines. Also discussed, the protection from lawsuits that pharmaceutical companies enjoy, special 'vaccine courts' that have paid damage awards in the billions of dollars, and California's new law making vaccines mandatory. Stressing that autism is a major public health crisis of unequaled proportions, this book accuses the federal government of refusing to acknowledge it as such and having a corrupt and morally unsound relationship with “Big Pharma.” Read more →

As regular readers know, I have been recommending Christian Medical Sharing as an excellent alternative to Obamacare. I made the switch out of traditional health insurance in August of 2012 and have no regrets. I have suggested, however, that it still makes sense to consider other options and to re-shop annually to stay in touch with other options and prices. My son and daughter will now be dropping off my medical sharing plan as of February (my wife has employer provided health insurance). So, with the Obamacare open enrollment window I thought I should go to the website and see... Read more →

I don't know if you remember the old TV show The Equalizer. I absolutely loved this show. Edward Woodward was perfectly cast as the main character, Robert McCall. The Equalizer was a retired spy that used his background and special skills to help ordinary people get justice (when the authorities were of no help). By the way, if you missed it, the movie version starring Denzel Washington came out just a few weeks ago. The movie version was a bit more violent than the TV show (see trailer below). You have to love The Equalizer because he was ready, willing,... Read more →

Jennifer purchased travel insurance from Blue Cross of Canada, and the couple went on their way; however, her water broke while in Hawaii, resulting in an extended hospital stay during which their baby was delivered prematurely. Blue Cross of Canada cited as a... Read more →


Tom Sightings has written a great piece for the online version of U.S. News & World Report that details both retirees’ typically most substantial expenses, as well as some ways to limit each. There’s actually a lot of good information inside of what is a relatively brief piece; to what is surely no one’s surprise, expenses like housing, health care, and taxes make the list. It is, of course, a great idea to limit one’s expenses in retirement whenever possible, but the reality is that many people will find it to be extremely helpful to double their financial power in...
