Endangered Species: Obamacare Drives Private-Practice Doctors Out

“I cannot keep the doctor my whole family loves and trusts,” lamented Gretchen. Through coughs, colds and the occasional check-ups, Gretchen’s family physician has been there for her and her family since 2003. She became acquainted with him when her daughter needed to be rushed to the emergency room for an uncontrollable stomach ailment. Over those 11 years, their beloved doctor watched her kids grow into adulthood. The history and level of trust developed during that time are the reasons Gretchen is mourning.

Editor: IRS ‘clearly run amok during the Obama administration’

U.S. News & World Report Contributing Editor Peter Roff this week criticizes the heavy-handed officials at President Obama’s IRS, including Commissioner John Koskinen who effectively looked the other way as documents ordered preserved for investigation into the agency’s slow-rolling of tax-exempt-status applications for conservative groups were destroyed.

U.S. News & World Report has ...

Read a portion of Mr. Goodwin’s column below: Color me skeptical that she will face criminal charges, especially after President Obama’s kind words for her. His praise of Clinton’s experience in an interview, twinned with his comparison of Bernie Sanders as a “bright, shiny object,” were widely interpreted as a Clinton endorsement.
