A new Harvard University poll indicates
that young people ages 18 – 29 believe Obamacare will result in higher costs and lower quality of care. Forty percent of young adults think the quality of care will get worse under Obamacare, and 37 percent believe it will remain the same, while a mere 17 percent think it may get better. Fifty-one percent say it will increase costs for them, and 34 percent say they will remain the same, while a mere 11 percent think it will decrease costs for them.
Here are five facts that show young people are paying attention to reality, not just Mr. Obama’s rhetoric.
The Employee Rights Act (S.1712) would protect workers from union pressure by putting power in the hands of employees and making union leaders more accountable to their members.
The Heritage Foundation explains that this bill would guarantee employees the right to vote privately in a secret ballot election before forming a union, opt out of having their personal contact information provided to a union during an organizing drive, vote in a secret ballot election before accepting a contract or going on strike, vote regularly on re-electing their union, decide whether their union can spend their dues on matters unrelated to collective bargaining, and be free from union interference or extortion in exercising their legal rights.
The Employee Rights Act would solve problems workers face today – including problems enshrined in current labor law. The bill would help restore a balance of power in the workplace from unions to workers.

States are refusing to sign enrollees for Medicaid due to incomplete information from HealthCare.gov (sub. req’d
States are warning that they may not process Medicaid enrollments from people who have signed up for the health program through the troubled HealthCare.gov site, raising the prospect that several hundred thousand low-income people who thought they had obtained insurance actually may not have it.
The federal health-insurance site, which serves residents in 36 states, is designed to sell policies from private insurers. But some people who apply for coverage through the site discover they are eligible instead for Medicaid, the joint federal-state health-insurance program for the poor and disabled.
President Obama made remarks on the economy Wednesday, lamenting inequality in America. Of course, he blames everyone but himself and the big government he promotes for the state of things.
