The University of Farmington had no staff, no professors, no curriculum, and no classes. But it did have hundreds of foreign "students," who may now face deportation because of their willingness to participate in what authorities described as a "pay to stay" scheme in which they could live and work in the US under false pretenses. It was part of a...
Prescription drug prices in the United States are insane. It’s such an endemic problem that both Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump have vowed to address it, albeit in different ways.

Temperatures at the university plunged to about minus 21 degrees, with a windchill as low as 51 degrees below zero, this week amid an Arctic front that has hit large parts of the country.

Des Moines, Iowa resident Renee Welk, whom moderator Jake Tapper described as self-employed and having trouble finding an affordable health insurance plan, initiated the exchange by asking a question of Sen....
Before he got voted out of office in November, former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) inked a major deal with Taiwanese tech giant Foxconn to build a sprawling factory in the Badger State. Now, it looks like the jobs Foxconn promised in exchange for approximately $4 billion in tax breaks will never come. Initially, Foxconn’s proposed factory in Wisconsin would have built advanced...
