    When the Affordable Care Act's fourth open enrollment period starts next week, many Lehigh Valley participants will notice a sharp spike in premiums. In Pennsylvania, the average price for the benchmark second-lowest-cost silver plan for a 27-year-old is going up 53 percent, according to a report issued Monday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. That's nearly four times the rate of increase nationally.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the architects of Obamacare, stated that “There’s a million people” for whom Obamacare premium increases are “going to be severe — or uncomfortable.” Emanuel said that “most” Americans are not seeing 25% premium increases, because they get subsidies. He added, “[T]here are some relatively simple fixes. One is better social marketing to get young people in. Another is these risk corridors for the insurance companies, so that they can keep premiums lower. Another is to change…how much older people pay versus younger people, to decrease the cost for...

    The Hagia Sophia is one of the most beautiful and well-known buildings in the world -- and Islamists have detested that fact for years. After all, it is a Christian church, and therefore a Christian symbol. That's why the Ottoman Turks wasted little time transforming the church into a mosque when they invaded and conquered Constantinople (Istanbul) centuries ago. Christian symbols and works of art were destroyed or covered, and a dominating tower was built from which the Islamic call to prayer could be sung. The Ottomans did that because they wanted to show Christians that, from then onwards, Islam...

Just two weeks before Election Day, the New York businessman addressed the health care development during an appearance at one of his Florida golf resorts that highlighted the extraordinary intersection of his business and political interests. His message was somewhat scattershot, leaving questions of how well he and his party can capitalize on a revived emphasis on “Obamacare.” …

Donald Trump has also repeatedly insisted that if he is elected, he will appoint a special prosecutor to look into Hillary Clinton’s alleged criminal acts, both while as secretary of state and beyond.
