Editorial: Health care primer 101

Posted on March 23, 2017 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



As Republicans hope to end ObamaCare and begin the launch of TrumpCare, here’s a basic primer that explains one over-arching problem Republicans face: As crafted, the GOP plan does two things that have Republicans up for re-election in 2018 and 2020 running for cover: it could make roughly 24 million Americans now on Obamacare either lose their insurance or see the premiums increase so much they wouldn’t be able to afford coverage; and premiums for older and sicker Americans will skyrocket.

Community Forum: Haviland Smith, Probe Russian embassy calls

By Haviland Smith



Editor’s note: This commentary is by Haviland Smith, of Williston, a retired CIA station chief whose focus was the Soviet Union. He was also the CIA’s first chief of counterterrorism.

That was probably an unnecessary revelation, but it will have few negative ramifications for the United States.
