  HEALTHCARE: The dire ObamaCare threat to New York’s hospitals “City Comptroller Scott Stringer laid out the grim facts last week on how the most progressive law in decades means disaster for New York City. The bottom line of Stringer’s report: Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, Uncle Sam will cut more than $800 million in payments to the city’s Health and Hospitals Corp, by Fiscal Year 2019.

This, coupled by an improving economy, is boosting revenues for hospital companies like Community Health Systems (CYH), Tenet Healthc...

Q&A with National Grassroots Coordinator Keli Carender

Today marks the sixth anniversary of the first wave of protests that grew into the Tea Party movement. We asked National Grassroots Coordinator Keli Carender to reflect on her involvement, and the strength of the movement today. Keli, you don’t necessarily fit the stereotypical conservative activist.

A few months before the first protest in 2009, I joined the Young Republicans in Seattle in order to meet some other young conservatives, but other than that I hadn't really ever been involved in ...
