Mercedes Wore Black: Florida Politics. The only thing predictable is the unpredictability. When Janis is fired from her job at the newspaper, she focuses on the causes that matter to her. The environment and the economy. That embroils her in the 2014 election. When her good friend Mercedes encounters danger and is brutally murdered, Janis begins to investigate. She finds herself in a political maelstrom of big money, lottery, and interests with opposing goals. Joe Guidry, Opinion Editor at The Tampa Tribune writes; "Fast-paced, exquisitely written, Mercedes Wore Black vividly depicts the underbelly of the newspaper industry and the all-too-real shenanigans of those who are ever willing to sacrifice Florida's natural treasures"

The latest on the border crisis and whether Congress will get a bill thru before their upcoming month long August recess.
The Court said the four words in the law that mean what they say are: "established by the state":
If you bought insurance from an exchange NOT established by the state, then you aren't entitled to a federal subsidy.
36 states refused to set up state exchanges. However the IRS made a ruling that every exchange can offer a subsidy...Not just those "established by the state"
4.6 M Americans receive subsidies. Two of largest states That dole out OBamaCare subsidies are FL and TX. The Average subsidy is $269 per month going to OBamaCare recipients who signed up for insurance to help pay their premium. The obvious assumption is that Without the subsidy from the Feds people wouldn't have signed up. Health care would be too expensive, so they would have just paid the fine for not having insurance which is set at $95 first yr.

This week on The Shift we're talking with teen novelist Nancy Rue. The issue she addresses in her latest novel, So Not Okay, is bullying in schools. Her novel is written for teenagers to see through the viewpoint of a child being bullied. We have all been there when we were growing up, but what we assumed at one point in our lives to be harmless actually torments young kids so much that they end their lives. Many people don't realize the severity of the situation and should become more aware of how their children behave towards others.
We'll discuss the issue of human kindness, how we can stop bullying and how to deal with bullying. Help us push this movement forward and stop this once and for all. Call in and ask your questions. We're also giving away a couple copies of the book to share with your teen. Follow us on Twitter @ShiftWithSkip or on Facebook here. #bullying #sonotokay
