patient protection and affordable care act

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

[VIDEO]: Watch how Bill Clinton criticizes an ally’s Obamacare – but Trump’s strategy, not the solution either; according to an observer.

It’s supposed to be patient protection and affordable care act

“You’ve got this crazy system where all of a sudden 25 million more people have healthcare and then the people are out there busting it sometimes 60 hours a week wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half,” he said in Flint, Mich. “It’s the craziest thing in the world.”

Still, Clinton said repealing the Affordable Care Act—as Republican nominee Donald Trump wants to do—isn’t the answer.

Did not Work for All

The system works for people who are eligible for Medicaid or for other insurance subsidies, Clinton added, but not for middle-class families who make too much to get government assistance but still have trouble affording high premiums.“

Clarification from Hillary Clinton’s Camp

Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said the former president was referring to the way the health care system used to work.

Just an Observation – showing that there’s a room for further improve

“Well, what he was referring to was the health care system [touches earpiece] both as it used to be and then sometimes what happens in some of these markets, you know, where basically the marketplace skews the cost,” Mook said. “This is exactly why we’ve got to do something about premium increases”.

Presidential Debate: Trump defensive even with Clinton’s use of personal email for top secrets

Presidential Debate

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Hillary Clinton forces Donald Trump onto defense over his temperament, refusal to release his taxes and his past comments about race and women during their first presidential debate. Clinton would do it differently if given the chance to correct her mistake in dealing with highly confidential matters through her personal email but Trump thinks, she’s a disgrace.

[VIDEO]: Hillary admits that using personal emails on the country’s highly confidential documents was a mistake – but Trump insists she did that on purpose.

Clinton’s Dominance

Clinton, delivers a strong performance in which she demonstrates a command of policy and a sense of humor. She’s just smiling through some of Trump’s strongest attacks.

“Trump’s False Claim

The debate highlights Trump’s tendency to make false claims as he made inaccurate statements on everything from laws regarding policing. His support for the Iraq War and his contention that Clinton was behind the so-called birther conspiracy.

Discussion on Barack Obama

One of the most powerful moments of the debate comes when the conversation focuses on the so-called birther debate. It follows Trump’s recent acknowledgment that President Barack Obama was born in the US. It is a fact that has been evident for years. With Trump standing just a few feet from her, Clinton blasted him for perpetuating a “racist lie.”

Trump is a Racist

“He has a long record of engaging in racist’s behavior,” Clinton said as Trump shook his head. Trump hit back, noting Clinton’s tough critiques of Obama during their bitter 2008 primary battle.

Dignified and Poised

Hillary Clinton’s preparedness to swallow Trump made her look so dignified and posed. While Trump is busy fighting with the moderator or controlling his body language.That tells people he lacks information.

Presidential Debate

welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Clinton and Trump open the debate positively by shaking hands. Then, the station themselves behind their podiums at Hofstra University on New York’s Long Island. Former President Bill Clinton and Melania Trump also greet each other before going to their assigned seats.

[VIDEO]: Trump brags that he kows how to win and Hillary don’t. Whooh what a temper!

Presidential Debate Temperaments Exposed

Trump narrates how outrageous Hillary Clinton was talking to someone whom he does not know.  He also praises himself for having much better temperament than her. Clinton then narrates how Trump commented about a foreign navigational vehicle coming into the American waters. Take them off he said. That can start another war.

Temperaments all throughout

Trump’s intense manner of speaking did not help him in this round. Clinton’s smiles, body language and “whoos” could just make audience applaud her.

Democratic Audience

The drawing aura of Hillary Clinton makes the audience respond by applauding her every brilliant defence. In many instances she really makes Donald Trump look like a neophyte smart ass.


Trump Convinces Self that He did better than Expected

Trump could be right that he did better than expected considering that Hillary Clinton makes her living doing public speaking.  However, as a presidential aspirant, he should have prepared himself by researching what he has to do as president. Often, he’s just acting aggressively when caught off guard.

Iranian Ship to be “shot out of the water” by Trump (Actual words)

Hillary Clinton highlights that Trump’s “shot out of the water” comment to the Iranian ship entering territorial waters of the US can actually start a war. Therefore he is not fit to be commander-in-chief. Point well taken!

Trump: Fed’s Disunity in Raise Hikes creates False Economy


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Not many top Fed officials cab speak publicly in favor of interest rates hikes. When they do, some would then re-battle that with lowering interest rates. The conflict in the leadership for this matter hurts public confidence. Read the details here and know what Donald Trump has to say:

Philippine President

“This is a disaster in terms of credibility,” says Dan North, chief U.S. economist at Euler Hermes. Investors “don’t think there’s any credibility in what [Fed officials] say because there’s too many voices.”
The Fed has kicked off its two-day meeting on Tuesday. All eyes will be on Chair Janet Yellen when she speaks shortly after the Fed’s makes its announcement at 2 p.m. ET Wednesday.

Why won’t the Fed raise rates?

Wall Street sees a very low chance of a rate hike on Wednesday, placing the odds of a rate increase at just 12%, according to CME Group.
The minority who are betting that a hike will happen may have been encouraged by from the fact that some Fed officials recently had talked up the chance of a September move. Boston Fed president Eric Rosengren and Chicago Fed president Charles Evans made speeches in late August, arguing the Fed should raise rates sooner rather than later.

Then three days later, Fed Governor Lael Brainard argued against raising rates in a speech.
Stock markets can get rattled when leaders of the decision-making Federal Open Market Committee hint at raising rates, says Ed Yardeni, chief investment strategist at Yardeni Research. He called it the “Federal Open Mouth Committee.”
But “these stock swoons seem to be the shortest, because other talking Fed [officials] scurried to calm the markets down,” by talking down the chance of a rate hike, Yardeni says.
Fed leaders often dismiss any questions of credibility by pointing to recent, weak economic numbers. Job growth slowed in August and consumer spending has dipped recently. With economic growth already sluggish, hopes of a Fed rate hike in September were all but dashed.

Trump: the Fed has created a ‘false economy’

Still, some experts say it’s time to raise rates.
After all, the Fed typically increases rates by just 25 basis points — 0.25% — which many describe as a drop in the bucket. There are concerns that stock markets could be volatile after the U.S. presidential election, meaning the Fed might have a limited window of opportunity.
“Credibility for the Fed is a tough challenge right now,” says Sylvia Maxfield, dean of the Providence College School of Business in Rhode Island. Her advice: “let’s just do it now, and get it over…this is a window.”
Maxfield says she’s a contrarian and believes there’s a chance the Fed will raise rates Wednesday.
At the beginning of the year, Fed leaders projected they would raise rates four times this year. But a slew of setbacks — low oil prices, fears of China’s slowdown, weak hiring in May — persuaded the Fed not to move.
Such a significant change of plans undercuts the Fed’s credibility, some experts say.
If the Fed does not raise rates in September, it only has two more meetings for the rest of the year, and many believe it will wait until its December meeting to raise rates.
The Fed “needs to save face by hiking at least once this year,” says Christopher Veccio, a currency analyst at DailyFX, a research firm.

Non-white Favorite: Clinton leads Trump by 5 points in Florida


welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
Hillary Clinton becomes the favorite for non-white Americans. She holds a 5-point edge over Donald Trump in Florida. This is according to a new poll from Monmouth University out Tuesday.

Philippine President

The poll found Clinton leading Trump among likely voters in the crucial battleground, 46%-41%. Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein, both of whom will be on Florida’s ballot, drew 6% and 1%, respectively.

Florida voters

Monmouth’s poll produced another unfavorable finding for Trump: 54% of Florida voters believe the GOP nominee’s recent turnabout on President Barack Obama’s origins was made for political reasons. Only 24% think Trump believes that Obama is a natural-born citizen.

After years of promoting conspiracy theories regarding the first black President’s birthplace, Trump changed course last week.
He still has plenty of work to do on that front in Florida. According to the poll, Clinton leads Trump among Hispanic, black and Asian voters in the state, 69%-16%. Those three blocs comprise one-third of Florida’s electorate.

CNN/ORC Survey

Clinton’s 5-point advantage is wider than other recent polls out of the state, including a CNN/ORC survey released last week that found Trump up by 3, within the poll’s 3.5 percentage point margin of error. But it’s smaller than her lead in the previous Monmouth poll in Florida last month, which showed Clinton up by 9. That margin was also larger than other Florida polls conducted at the time.
The latest Monmouth poll was conducted September 16-19 using phone interviews with 400 likely Florida voters. It has a margin of error of 4.9%.
