  • Healthcare debate lacks factual arguments against Obamacare

    Healthcare debate lacks factual arguments against Obamacare
    Americans have always been a politically contentious lot. But one topic seems to produce more pure vitriol than any other: the Affordable Care Act. I posted an item on my Times blog, the Economy Hub, citing new statistics indicating that the act has...
  • I doubted Heritage could run a 'straight' news site. I was right.

    I doubted Heritage could run a 'straight' news site. I was right.
    Back in May, the right-wing Heritage Foundation launched the Daily Signal, which it said would be a paragon of nonpartisan "just true, straight-down-the-middle journalism." I placed this in theyou-gotta-be-kidding-mecategory. And this week, the...
  • Reader feedback June 29: Hampton, Medicaid, Times-Herald

    All-America City •Susan: Hampton was named an All-America City, one of 10 in the nation, and that's the best you can do? A tiny piece at the bottom of Page 6 in the June 17 edition? Editor: Did we underplay it? Probably so. The award, handed out...
  • June 30 Letters: Medicaid, Newport News marathon, IRS emails, Hampton schools

    Selfish resistance I have to take issue with your June 24 editorial, "Stay within the law." Saying "the ends do not justify the means" in the governor's push for Medicaid expansion is a puerile defense of "a rule is a rule, no matter who it hurts."...

  • Where do we stand on a Medicaid special session?

    Is the special General Assembly session (you know, the one that's still going on) going to tackle the issue of health insurance coverage for the poor? Don't bet on it. Gov. Terry McAuliffe wanted it to -- that's why he proposed a two year pilot for...
  • Federal Auditors Question Access Health CT's Internal Controls

    Federal auditors reported Tuesday that they had found deficiencies in the internal controls used by the health insurance exchanges run by Connecticut, California and the federal government. The problems could have limited the marketplaces' ability to...
  • Supreme Court abortion clinic decision could help labor organizers

    There is no way to look at the Supreme Court’s decision Monday in the Illinois home health care workers case other than as a defeat for labor. Yeah, it was limited and could have been worse, but you just know from Judge Samuel A. Alito Jr.’s...
  • Florida fails those who need long-term care

    Florida fails those who need long-term care
    When it comes to helping seniors live independently and out of nursing homes, Florida ranks among the nation's worst. AARP recently released its 2014 state-by-state scorecard on long-term care services, and Florida's retiree-friendly reputation earned...
  • A special General Assembly Medicaid expansion session in the fall?

    Look for the General Assembly to gather again in September to resume debating on Medicaid expansion. Speaker Bill Howell seems likely to call a session in the later part of the month, hoping to listen to any new ideas about a policy that he, and most of...

    House, Senate: Virginia Medicaid debate in September
    RICHMOND — The Virginia General Assembly will go back into session this September to debate Medicaid expansion, legislative leaders said Wednesday. The reconvened session would fulfill a longstanding promise from House Republican leaders, who...
