Gun Control Might Not Have Stopped The WDBJ Shooter. That's Not The Point.

huffingtonpost.com — Would stricter gun laws have saved the lives of many other people? Probably.

Scott Walker And The Trouble With Obamacare 'Replacement' Plans

huffingtonpost.com — Very near the beginning of Scott Walker's new proposal to "repeal and replace" the Affordable Care Act, he bemoans that Obamacare forced so many people to give up the insurance they once had.
