Health care fiasco jeopardizes Trump’s alliance with RyanUS-POLITICS-TRUMP

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 01:27:24 -0400

The demise of the Republican health-care bill could push the Trump administration to drive the bus on its next big agenda items — and keep House Speaker Paul Ryan’s hands off the wheel. “They’ll be much more involved to get certain things they’re looking for,” GOP consultant Susan del Percio told The Post. “Don’t underestimate the...

Meet your new favorite lovable underdogs: The big, bad YankeesGary Sanchez

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 00:25:03 -0400

The Yankees have a chance to be something they almost never have been for almost a hundred years: a team that drops out of the sky, find itself, surprises people, and becomes — surprise! — a team you root for even if you don’t root for them. It’s funny: We tend to think of New...

NHL uses Olympic pressure to hold players union hostageGary Bettman

Sun, 26 Mar 2017 00:13:06 -0400

LOS ANGELES — The NHL’s vision rarely extends past the 50 percent of revenue the league is guaranteed under the CBA, so it is no surprise neither the board nor commissioner can recognize the positive global byproduct of continuing to participate in the Olympics in 2018. If it cannot be immediately quantified, the benefit does...

If you’re trying to sort out the facts from all the noise over the purported Russian involvement in the election and the Obama White House’s possible surveillance of the Trump transition team, it’s best to recall a handy rule of thumb in Washington.

Dear John: I had a $1,200 co-payment on surgery at NYU hospital, $78 of which went to NY state for sales tax — although I don’t think they called it that.

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 23:28:54 -0400

Dear John: Here’s the background to the big Medicare and insurance rip-off that Congress must address. Without getting too complex, doctors “code” visits so that they get paid for services they’ve provided. Your first-ever visit to a doctor costs more because they’re going to spend more time with you, getting history, etc. So they’re going...
