Nikki Bits

Growing up, my parents rarely discussed politics. When they did, it was usually my dad ranting about how republicans are evil,greedy, and racist. My father was literally raising me to be a democrat and discouraged any political opinion that did not fall in line with the democratic agenda. One year, I was even yelled at for agreeing with Newt Gingrich. Somehow, I had always known my political views did not fit in the community. I hardly ever commented on politics or conspiracy theories for fear that I would lose the few friends I was allowed to see. I did well in Civics class and even began watching more news to be better informed about current events. That did not work very well. It was not until I met my husband that I realized republicans were not as bad as I previously been led to believe. I submerged myself in politics and found that I have a passion for policy. The first two laws that I publicly opposed were the Affordable Care Act and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform bill. I will be digging into Common Core legislation soon. In the meantime, I continue to follow and support establishment challengers who seek to return traditional American values to our legislative process.

The American Election Has Become A Dumpster Fire

Turn on the television or radio these days and, with in the first 3 minutes, you’ll hear one politician or another begging for your vote. The usual lines are “Vote for me because the other guy hates capitalism” or “Vote for me because my opponent believes in crony capitalism.” I also like “Don’t vote for … Continue reading

Fixing America’s Health Insurance Problem Part 2: The Private Market

In the first installment, I outlined how the government could potentially save billions by transforming Medicaid into a premium assistance program that also helps with out-of-pocket costs. To do that, we need to understand how the private market works. One of the first things I learned as a business major was how everything fits together … Continue reading
