Analysis: Only modest premium hikes, and some cuts, seen as ‘Obamacare’ stabilizes

By MEGHAN HOYER and RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Millions of people covered under the Affordable Care Act will see only modest premium increases next year, and some will get price cuts. That’s the conclusion from an exclusive analysis of the besieged but resilient program, which still sparks deep divisions heading into this year’s midterm elections.

The psychology of Trumpism: scientific assessment versus relentless antagonism

2017 has been open season on the psyche of the 45th president of the United States. Psychiatrists and psychologists have gone public to express their concerns about his perceived state of mind despite the established Goldwater rule that it is unethical for them to diagnose mental illness in a living public figure they haven’t examined and whose consent they have not obtained. The consensus seems to be the Donald J. Trump has a narcissistic personality although some have gone as far as to suggest...

Doctors make big money testing urine for drugs, then ignore abnormal results

By Fred Schulte, California Healthline In April 2014, state and federal drug agents raided Jeffrey Campbell’s medical clinic in Jeffersonville, Ind. Police cars blocked the parking lot as bewildered patients scattered and the agents carted off boxes of records from the doctor’s office. Some of the seized records would show that Campbell endangered patients by prescribing opiates without any medical need, according to federal prosecutors.

Donald Trump triggers deep-seated human instincts

My dad is a locally famed and sincere career politician.

After that service, he came back to West Virginia where he has been elected to numerous West Virginia constitutional offices. He taught me, and has been quoted as saying, “Without protection for...
