Medicaid expansion credited for getting record number of kids insurance in Ohio (This is Obamacare at Work)

Medicaid expansion credited for getting record number of kids insurance in Ohio (This is Obamacare at Work)

More than 95 percent of Ohio children have health coverage as the uninsured rate fell to historic lows in the wake of Obamacare.

A new report from the Georgetown University Center for Children and Families credits Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act for the decline in uninsured children.

In Ohio, 26,000 children gained coverage between 2013 and 2015, the analysis showed, leaving an estimated 115,000 under the age of 19 without health insurance.

The state’s rate of uninsured children during that time fell to 4.4 percent, down …

Rob Portman Disqualifies Himself From Senate Race – Local Commentary

Rob Portman Disqualifies Himself From Senate Race – Local Commentary

You probably saw this headline and thought this is just typical partisan rhetoric, that each political party says their opponents are not qualified for office. But in the case of Republican Rob Portman, who is in a tight race with former Ohio governor Ted Strickland for the U.S. Senate race, his response to the release of the audio tape where Donald Trump brags about sexually assaulting women (which, by the way, is a crime, not locker-room talk) was simultaneously so pathetic and illegitimate, that he …

Columbus Dispatch Endorses Clinton; First Time Endorsing Dem in 100 Years

Columbus Dispatch Endorses Clinton; First Time Endorsing Dem in 100 Years

Like millions of Americans, The Dispatch editorial board has asked this question more than once: How, in a nation of more than 300 million people, did we end up with two such disliked and distrusted presidential candidates?

At the same time, we worry that this dismaying choice will cause some voters to throw up their hands and pass on this election. We urge voters to do their homework, cut through the half-truths and lies, and go to the polls with facts.

For us, the choice between Hillary …

The Atlantic Endorses Presidential Candidate for Just 3rd Time in 159 Years – Clinton

The Atlantic Endorses Presidential Candidate for Just 3rd Time in 159 Years – Clinton

Today, our position is similar to the one in which The Atlantic’s editors found themselves in 1964 (when they endorsed Lyndon B. Johnson). We are impressed by many of the qualities of the Democratic Party’s nominee for president, even as we are exasperated by others, but we are mainly concerned with the Republican Party’s nominee, Donald J. Trump, who might be the most ostentatiously unqualified major-party candidate in the 227-year history of the American presidency.

These concerns compel us, for the third time since the magazine’s …
