Loophole For Young People In Affordable Care Act (Obamacare)

Texas News Blog: There seems to be a gaping loophole in the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) that has yet to be filled. The way I understand the law, it must have healthy young people enrolled in order to make it possible to cover older and sicker people. That said, what would stop a young (20 something) from paying the small fine and only buy health insurance if they get sick or even worse dying? Since there are no longer any restriction on preexisting conditions, wouldn't an insurance company be forced to sell them a policy? If this is the case, Obamacare will fail in short order. A clear understanding of human nature should inform anyone that most young people who do not have health insurance now will be looking for any and all ways to beat the system and this new law.

Off Duty Police Officers - Guns At Dallas Cowboys Games?

Texas News Blog: Starting today, it will be against NFL rules for off-duty law enforcement officers to carry a gun inside a stadium. I'm afraid political correctness is going to ruin the National Football League. The good news for Dallas Cowboys fans is that Texas law overrides this new NFL rule. So during the game tonight between the the Redskins and Cowboys, off-duty police officers will continue to bring their guns to the game and as a result provide the public with an additional layer of protection.
