How changing the definition of "affordable" would leave employees--and employers--in a lurch Hillary Clinton has made fixing the "family glitch" part of her presidential healthcare platform , but she doesn't outline a plan for solving the Affordable Care Act quirk that leaves millions of people unable to access health insurance subsidies. There are only a few conceivable ways that the issue could be resolved, and each comes with its own consequences. Before digging into solving the "family glitch," let's cover exactly what it is.

All such laws are un-American and despotic" -- Attributed to Benjamin Rush, MD, A Founding Father and Signer of the Declaration of Independence (New World Encyclopedia) On May 5, 1976, I was arrested for practicing medicine without a license, making this date in 2016 my 40th anniversary of this arrest.
