Given the amount of attention the Affordable Care Act continues to
receive, and the many questions surrounding it, now is an opportune time

It’s here again, bigger, earlier and as frantic as ever: Black Friday,
which now starts on Thanksgiving, unofficially kicks off the holiday
shopping season this week with a smorgasbord of shopping. Predictions for how much consumers will spend remain weak or modest, and
some analysts are saying this could be the worst holiday shopping
season since the recession.
