When it comes to sustaining the social safety net, every dollar is critical.

(Photo: Joe Piette / Flickr ) Just weeks after lambasting the Affordable Care Act repeal and replacement efforts as "terrible" and "mean," President Trump is now calling for something even meaner: repealing the ACA entirely and replacing it at a later date . Repealing the ACA without replacing it would leave 32 million more uninsured by 2026.   Though delayed, the Better Care Reconciliation Act , the Senate version of the repeal, survives.

Oscar Mayer changes recipe, but hot dogs minus added nitrites may be no better 1.7.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
New York • Backyard cooks looking to grill this summer have another option: hot dogs without “added nitrites.” Are they any healthier?
