Singer: ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion limits medical choices

By Jeffrey A. Singer The national debate over the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion is nowhere close to being finished. Just ask my patients, who were forced off their private insurance and into the failing, government-run health care program. This was one of the ACA’s (or ObamaCare’s) many unintended consequences. In the 27 states that […]

Pruden: ‘A new kind of hell to pay’

By Wesley Pruden “Muddling through” is not an inspiring strategy for any president. Barack Obama’s administration is a muddle, as anyone can see, and everyone can see that he’s through as a leader, just when a leader is needed to reassure a frightened nation.

By Andree McLeod It’s been said that it’s wiser to deal with an undesirable but familiar situation than to risk a change that might lead to an even worse situation. The Unity Ticket held great promise until Bill Walker’s foolhardy decision to drive all the way from Anchorage to Sarah Palin’s lakeside home in Wasilla […]

Jenkins: Begich’s defense of Anchorage legacy falls short

By Paul Jenkins Attack ads bolstering Mark Begich’s quest to retain his Senate seat are enough to make any self-respecting snake blush. To endure them day-in and day-out without developing spiritual callouses, a person needs, as Hunter S. Thompson once put it, the soul of a lizard. At least one of the ads — vicious […]
