A January 22, 2019 Cleveland Plain Dealer front page article entitled, "Still Wrestling with Lead Poisoning: Cleveland officials to Unveil yet Another Initiative," announced the dismal results of the efforts of highly motivated Clevelanders to rid the city of the deadly poison. Since at least 1992, when a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study estimated that at least 15% of Cleveland children had lead levels above 10 micrograms, Cleveland officials have tried to at least, significantly reduce exposure to lead.

Plain Dealer reporters Brie Zelner and Rachel Dissell, summed up that fact in their article, "Promises, Promises: Calls for Action, Little Progress." Lead exposure levels have fallen here and across the country over the past few decades,but Cleveland remains one of the worst areas, with thousands of children exposed every year."


US Dist. Judge Reed O'Connor says 2017 tax law ended the penalty for not having insurance

Julie Rovner, reporting for Kaiser Health News, discusses the issue before U.S. Dist. Judge Reed O'Connor in the case Tex. v. United States (2018 U.S. Dist. Lexis 211547):  "the tax bill passed by Congress last December, 2017 effectively rendered the entire health law unconstitutional. . . that tax measure eliminated the penalty for not having insurance.  A 2010 Supreme Court decision upheld the ACA based on the view that the penalty was a tax and thus the law was valid because it relied on appropriate power allowed Congress under the Constitution.
