My family needs health insurance!

My husband is self employed and I work part-time so do not qualify for health insurance. We pay outrageous premiums for awful health insurance and can not continue to do so for much longer. I thought the "American dream" was to start your own business ...

How the ACA will help us

My letter to Brian Williams at NBC News

To Brian Williams: You are a heck of a guy and I love your wit, but soon I will not be watching any mainstream media. Your reporting about the outrageous costs of Obamacare is just plain ridiculous. I just signed up. Sure it took awhile and the website ...

Shhh. Don’t Tell Anyone That I’m A Stay-At-Home Mom

As a native New Yorker, I am the type of woman that says what she thinks. In fact, sometimes my filter needs adjusting when I hear my thoughts slip right out of my mouth. I never thought that I would want to conceal that I chose to leave my career to ...
