Republicans came in claiming a mandate when they tried to “repeal and replace” Obamacare in 2017—but were handed a pretty swift defeat each time they tried to bring the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to the chopping block. Instead of a mandate, Congress found Americans to be spooked about health coverage, and rightly so. We pay more than nearly every other country in the world and by the looks of things, it’s not about to get any more affordable in the coming years.

So many people are enthralled with them, in fact, the word “selfie" was officially accepted by Merriam Webster for entrance into the dictionary last year. This is in and of itself a bit of a crazy feat, when you think of it.

by   -  March 24th, 2014

Most people generally think of spring as the time for cleaning out those overrun closets, or donating unwanted items to goodwill. But let me ask you this; do you clean out your medicine cabinet, too? If you're like most of us, the answer is probably no.

Out With the Old

Throwing out anything expired, discontinued/recalled, or partially used (including any over the counter medicines) is critical to a healthy medicine cabinet.
