A Tiny, Petty Victory

By | Commentaries/Opinions, Dr. Julianne Malveaux

After months of “repeal and replace” rhetoric, Congress has finally passed a pitiful little bill designed to eliminate the Affordable Care Act.   To watch Republicans gather in the Rose Garden to “celebrate” the narrow passage of their paltry bill, you would have thought that 45 was about to sign ground-breaking legislation.  Instead, changes to the Affordable Care Act must be ironed out between the House of Representatives and the Senate. …

Lessons from Fox and O’REILLY

By | Commentaries/Opinions, Dr. Julianne Malveaux

Alexander Acosta – Bad News in a Slick Package

By | Commentaries/Opinions, Dr. Julianne Malveaux

By the time you read this, Alexander Acosta, the 45th President’s nominee for Secretary of Labor, is likely to have been confirmed by the full Senate. He got narrow approval from the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions by a 12-11 party line vote. I don’t blame the Democrats for opposing the Acosta nomination. In his televised hearing, he was as slippery as Supreme Court nominee, Neil…
