Trump Watch —

A Donald Trump Rally is scheduled at the Charlotte Convention Center for Thursday, August 18 at 7:30 PM in Charlotte, NC.  Doors open at 4:30 PM.  For tickets go to his official website:  www.DonaldJTrump.com which also has details.

Governor Mike Pence has a Rally scheduled for Atlanta on August 29.  Details will be forthcoming.

One leaked DCCC memo (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) issued this threat:  “If you are too Blue, you’ll pay the price.”  Newly leaked memos show that party bosses are criticizing Democratic candidates who are too pro-Police and not strong enough for Black Lives Matter.  History has shown that the only way Democrats get into office is by winning minority votes, so they are pushing a racially divisive message at the expense of law enforcement.  At a time when cops are being targeted across the nation, that is despicable.

Obamacare (aka The Affordable Care Act) is in turmoil because insurance companies are dropping out of the exchanges.  For 2017, Aetna will abandon more than two thirds of the counties where they currently sell coverage. Why?  Because they suffered a pre-tax loss of more than $200,000,000 during the second quarter of this year.   United Health Care is dropping out of 31 states next year and only going to offer policies in Nevada, Virginia, and New York.  Humana has also announced they will cut their plans.  Insurers have struggled to enroll enough healthy people to balance the claims they pay for high-cost individuals.  Hardest hit may be rural counties where only one insurance company offers a plan.  Stories are surfacing where people take their ACA card to a doctor or a clinic, and the Obamacare insurance is not accepted.
