Young Americans Upset That Obamacare Costs More Money

 

 

” Obamacare’s been stumbling along at quasi-full force for over a week now, and for some Americans, the Affordable Care Act is not all it was cracked up to be:

Soaring Number Of Career Women ‘Killed By Alcohol’ And Figure Is Rising Faster Than Men

 

 

” The number of alcohol-related deaths among career women has soared over the past decade and is now rising faster than among men, figures reveal.

For women in high-flying roles such as chief executives, doctors and lawyers, the number of deaths caused by drinking has risen by 23 per cent.

Research last year showed that middle-aged professional women are drinking more alcohol than teenagers for the first time. Over-55s drink more than any other age group and are now the biggest burden on the NHS.

Professor Ian Gilmore, chair of the UK Alcohol Health Alliance, said rates of almost all serious diseases in the young and middle-aged have fallen as we live longer, but liver disease is rising ‘dramatically’.

He said: ‘These figures are just the tip of the iceberg, as they are the cases where alcohol is specifically mentioned on the death certificate.

‘When you look at diseases where alcohol is a major factor, such as oesophageal and throat cancer, or strokes, the true toll is much larger. When I became a liver consultant 30 years ago, to see a woman dying with alcohol-related liver disease was really rare.

‘Today it’s not common, but every liver specialist will have seen women in their late 20s or early 30s dying of alcoholic liver disease.’ “

” Like many students, Steve Vonderweidt hoped that a master’s degree in business administration would open doors to a new job with a higher paycheck

But now, about eight months after receiving his M.B.A. from the University of Louisville, Mr. Vonderweidt, 36 years old, hasn’t been able to find a job in the private sector, and continues to work as an administrator at a social-service agency that helps Louisville residents obtain food stamps, health care and other assistance. He is saddled with about $75,000 in student-loan debt—much of it from graduate school.

 “It was a really great program,” says Mr. Vonderweidt. “But the job part has been atrocious.Soaring tuition costs, a weak labor market and a glut of recent graduates such as Mr. Vonderweidt are upending the notion that professional degrees like M.B.A.s are a sure ticket to financial success. “
