Nicole Back is a friend who is the one interview I wish I could obtain. She introduced me to the media world and was yin to my yang on issues of the day. We lost touch of each other after all of these years but my hope are that one day we can have a beer and enjoy laughing at each other lives.
To my dear friend, you will always have a spot on the show and my heart.
Not one story that has come out this week about the White House or the Trump administration by the main stream media can be confirmed. Why? Because they all claim “Inside Sources” as their base of the report. “Inside sources” means, we made it up.

We listed the most current stories on this matter below to give you an idea on what is happening. With companies pulling out, it’s no wonder why congress and the President are trying to do something before we have nothing.
We also are not going to put blame on anybody. The spirt of this article is just to let you know what is happening with the insurance companies.
Humana will completely withdraw from the Affordable Care Act exchange program in 2018, leaving a sizable dent in the Obamacare market.
This would make Humana the first major health insurance company to walk away from Obamacare. The company states that it has come to this decision due to the fact that it stands to lose $45 million in 2017 on Obamcare business.
Aetna said that it won’t sell individual coverage next year in its two remaining states — Nebraska and Delaware — after projecting a $200 million loss this year. It had already dropped Iowa and Virginia for next year. The insurer once sold the coverage in 15 states, but slashed that to four after losing about $450 million in 2016.
UnitedHealthcare, the biggest health insurer in the United States, that it plans to exit most of the Affordable Care Act state exchanges where it currently operates by 2017.
The health insurer had already indicated that it was dropping coverage of the plans, more commonly known as Obamacare, in Arkansas, Georgia and Michigan.
But during a conference call with analysts, CEO Stephen Hemsley noted that “next year we will remain in only a handful of states.”
We’re trying something *new* for us and it’s posting the replay of our show on Youtube. A few people voiced that playing the replay wasn’t an option for them so we’ll try this.
Let us know what you think.
