   During a March 9 debate in the House Energy and Commerce Committee on the GOP's plans to revise the Affordable Care Act, Democratic Rep. Mike Doyle (Pa.) began questioning the GOP's issues with Obamacare's health-insurance plan requirements.

In a moving essay for Glamour, model, cookbook writer and Twitter clapback queen Chrissy Teigen has shared her experiences with postpartum depression after the birth of her daughter Luna last April. Although postpartum depression is quite common — one in nine women experience it, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — like many mental health matters, it’s still stigmatized and rarely spoken about.

Conspiracy theorist radio host Alex Jones has been on the air spewing ridiculous lies for over 20 years, and publishes his bizarre opinions on his website Infowars. Despite the fact that his theories are obviously total nonsense, he has racked up a huge following, and millions of fans tune into his show.
