Reversing the ascent of the Islamic extremist terrorist group ISIS. 3. “Most Favored Nation” executive order so that the U.S. (through Medicare) would pay no more for a drug than what’s offered to foreign countries, saving the U.S. an estimated “$85 billion in savings over seven years and $30 billion in out-of-pocket costs.” 4.

Fort Worth Regulators Target Community Fridges Providing Free Food for People in Need – Reason.com

That city’s community fridge project was started by Kendra Richardson, a local high school teacher and activist, Eater’s Brittanie Shey reported in September. Richardson’s successful Funky Town Fridge project soon added two more community fridges. But, as Shey reported last week, the Funky Town Fridge project is in jeopardy now thanks to a perfect storm of inane (and inanely applied) state and local laws. After allowing her to operate for months, Fort Worth officials informed Richardson that the community fridges violate what Shey rightly terms “an obscure, archaic law, passed in 1964, that is meant to prevent children from becoming stuck in airtight appliances.”
