The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is failing. Without regard for consequences, the law expanded government insurance programs and imposed considerable federal authority over US health care via new mandates, regulations and taxes. Insurance premiums skyrocketed even as deductibles rose; consumer choices of insurance on state marketplaces have rapidly vanished; and for those with ACA coverage, doctor and hospital choices have narrowed dramatically. Meanwhile, consolidation across the health care sector has accelerated at a record pace, portending further harm to consumers, including higher prices of medical care.

It was supposed to look effortless, German Chancellor Angela Merkel gliding to victory in this year's federal election. But the roughly 33.5% of seats that she won -- according to exit polls -- was less than anticipated, even though she secured her conservative party, the Christian Democrats (CDU), a fourth term in office.
'Battle of the Sexes' is an easy movie to like, but with apologies to its tennis backdrop, not quite love. Deftly recreating the Billie Jean King-Bobby Riggs match with Emma Stone and Steve Carell perfectly inhabiting the key roles, the power of the story carries the day, overcoming places where this slight film exhibits as much finesse as an overhead smash.
'Kingsman: The Golden Circle' comes down with a bad case of sequel-itis -- a condition that dictates everything must be bigger, brasher and louder -- and thus provides more sporadic fun.
