Kansas premiums lower than expected under new health insurance marketplaces, report says

Having trouble getting the link to load, but I fail to see how this would work.

THe purchae of insurance generates a tax credit. No mandate to purchase.

If the credit is not claimed it goes to providers in their area.

It would stand to reason, if you are purchasing insurance, you are employed. If you are employed, you -should- be a taxpayer.

I have never seen a taxpayer leave a credit knowingly on the table. I've known people that have amended previous year's taxes when they discover a credit they previously were not aware of.

All this system does is subsidize existing policy holders. How is that moving the ball downfield?

State decides not to apply for Race to Top funds

Ask all the clarification questions you want. Doesn't mean you will get clarifying answers.

The simply answer is that the powers that be do not feel federal funds are worth pursuing. Kansas taxpayers will pay into it, but won't get anything out of it.

Opinion: Just think about Ted Cruz for a minute

What part of "Opinion" in the headline led you to believe this might be investigative journalism.

To borrow your own words...if you are connecting the dots to a picture of an opinion piece, you are really just drawing an opinion piece.

Missouri Tiger bar plans to celebrate anniversary of Quantrill's Raid

Bad unit of measure.

Maryland was union but had confederate units.

Georgia, Alabama, Virginia, and both Carolinas all had Union units.

People fought for a variety of reasons, none of which will put this bar and thier idiotic promotion into a good light.
