I have a couple of reasons for voting, how about you?

While I would normally be all on board the property tax reform train when it comes to pounding the drums to get everyone out to vote in the upcoming primary, there's just one little catch this year. There's only one district on the state level that has a competitive race, and that's only on the Republican side of a House race. In this week's rant I look at the upcoming primary, and mostly at the fact that we're not going to make one bit of difference with our votes this time around.

How well is the Affordable Care Act doing?

Honest opinions only. I mean, I was all for the concept. Everyone should have access to healthcare. Who wouldn't be? That's like saying you don't like kids. Who does that? OK, some people actually do say that. But I was ready, willing and able to give the Affordable Care Act the grade it deserved. And while the Obama administration is touting the 7-plus million people who signed up as achieving their original goal, there's a couple of key points that were left out. I take a look at the act in this week's rant. So, I'll ask again. How well do you think the Affordable Care Act is doing?
