This was not in the fine print of the Affordable Care Act (that no one read), and there was nothing in it that changed the existing law from 1993.

The ACA however, did expand the number of people who are eligible for Medicaid, so now there are more people from the ages of 55 to 65 whose estates could be on the hook for Medicaid expenses after the beneficiary dies.

This Golden Globes fave has a famous theme built around the 1970s Abscam Hustle, and its trio of stars provide a trilogy of how rotten American financial brainiacs hurt us every day. I guess. But what about all of the American Hustles happening every day in every home and extended family? One of the biggest hustles of which I am acutely aware is the way in which adult children hustle their sick, old parents.

Charleston Voice: Why Christians Should Not Recite the Pledge of Allegiance

May 14, 2013 1 comment

by Laurence M. Vance

“I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty, and justice for all.”

There are three holidays that cause otherwise sound-in-the-faith evangelical, conservative, and fundamentalist Christians to lose their religion.
