Why Will I Write about Politics?
You ask, “Carolyn, why do you want to open up the messy world of politics on your blog about health and personal finance?” Well, it matters. Lawmakers continually make changes in our health care and economic system and we need to keep up with what they are doing and push back when it doesn’t make sense.
Do not fear! Both parties write good and bad policy and I just call it like I see it when it happens. On my Forbes blog, when I wrote something good about the Affordable Care Act, I got hate mail from the right. When I wrote something bad about the Affordable Care Act, I got hate mail from the left.
My “lane” at Forbes is health and personal finance, so you won’t see much political commentary there. I am so excited to have this site – I look forward to sharing content that doesn’t fit in with what I’m contracted to write for my other publications. And I look forward to your feedback and thoughts on how we can fix our political mess! Stay tuned for more.
