Having sustained truly historic losses over the course of Obama’s presidency and into President Trump’s first term, the Democrats need a winning platform plank, and they think they’ve found it in single-payer health care.

With surprising Democrat base support for socialist Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) in the 2016 Democrat primaries and with...

One of the frustrations of the GOP ObamaCare repeal and replace effort is that their offering neither repeals nor replaces ObamaCare.  While there are a range of reasons provided for the GOP’s inability to pass a wholesale repeal, one of the more alarming is that Americans have apparently decided that the...

Senate Bill 562, the Healthy California Act, promises to create universal health care in the state. It easily passed its first major legislative hurdle last week, clearing the state...

Heat Street reports:

It’s “ethically inappropriate” for government and medical organizations to describe breastfeeding as “natural” because the term enforces...

In honor of the recent “March for Science“, I have decided to review a scientific assertion that is completely settled.

Back in 2012, when being a good Democrat meant defending Obamacare at all costs, she abandoned her prior support for a single payer plan. She got caught in an interview...
