Dual Eligibles
Dual Eligibles are individuals qualified to receive both Medicare and Medicaid benefits. Medicare is always the first payer of the two, and Medicaid is used for supplemental coverage, premium and cost-sharing assistance, and payment for services not covered by Medicare.

Would you trust an 80-year-old law to regulate the Internet?

yes. as a matter of fact if you don't trust it I have a feeling a 124year old law is going  to make some of the members and affiliates of your organization regret it. maybe you've heard of it a little law called "The Sherman Antitrust Act". I wouldn't be surprised if they faced charges of embezzlement on top of antitrust. the 1996 telecommunication act gave ISP's tax dollars and access to existing infrastructure along with rights to install new infrastructure. namely fiber optic cable which was what isp's(aka your freinds) promised in return for signing the bill. but instead they used the money to buy out competition and continued to use old copper lines that can barely deliver the speeds customers are already paying to receive.

A Look Inside The Complicated FCC Transaction Review Process
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has stopped the 180-day informal clock on both the Comcast-Time Warner Cable transaction and AT&T's acquisition of DirecTV. This temporary halt should not be read as a mark against any of the companies. The FCC review process is far more complicated and uncertain than similar review processes at either the Department of Justice (DOJ) or the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), even though all aim to determin...

Energy production is a game changer:
The domestic oil and gas boom is a game changer for energy-producing states and U.S. trade. States that lead in energy production have performed much better throughout the recovery than those that import the majority of their energy from other states. Over the period from 2011 to 2013, the U.S. trade imbalance fell $72 billion while the trade balance in energy increased $96 billion, resulting in an increase to GDP growth of roughly 0.3% annually.

To educate on center - right policies
Introduction
The American Action Forum is a forward-looking policy institute dedicated to keeping America strong, free and prosperous.  It seeks to promote common-sense, innovative, and solutions-based policies that will reform government, challenge out-dated assumptions, and create a smaller, smarter government that will serve its citizens better. We will use the modern tools of communications to deploy ideas; engage Americans in the debate over the boundaries of government policy, personal freedoms, and market incentives; and educate and challenge the media to explore these issues and shape the next generation of political leaders. 

The American Action Forum will lead the policy debate and will seek the input of center-right leaders who understand that government has an important, but limited role in protecting our freedoms, promoting the free-market, and helping our citizens. The American Action Forum seeks to shape and improve the substance and tone of the debate in Congress and elsewhere. We seek to support those who believe in a vibrant private sector complemented by effective, tightly-articulated policies where the government has a unique role.  We will engage in an intellectual battle with reflexive liberals who see continued growth in the size and power of the federal government as the only solution.

By mobilizing a broad network of experts, the American Action Forum will engage civil society, philanthropy, policymakers, academics and other thought leaders who shape American policy. The American Action Forum believes that the United States is an enormous force of good in the world and will continue to play a preponderant leadership role in enlarging human freedom and human prosperity. The American Action Forum is an independent and nonpartisan research institution.
