WASHINGTON - Their first gathering, in 1998, was held in Matthew Haapoja's two-bedroom apartment, known as the "Reagan Ballroom." Every February since, about 100 people have joined him to celebrate Ronald Reagan's birthday. Wearing their Reagan T-shirts or political buttons, they replay tapes of his speeches or watch his movies. But for all their devotion to the 40th president, most of the guests are so young that they remember little about Reagan and his administration - just that he was the man their parents called "the president."

NEW YORK - The college Republicans at a youth convention in Madison Square Garden were listening to motivational speeches yesterday - all right, some admitted, they were daydreaming about whether they wanted to grow up to become GOP super-strategist Karl Rove or George W. Bush himself - when their reverie was rudely interrupted. About 10 protesters broke into the Garden, posing as young Republicans in conservative button-downs and pressed pants to get past security. They ripped off their nice shirts to reveal anti-Bush signs pinned to T-shirts underneath and shouted, "Bush Is Killing Millions!"

My father has worked at the same furniture manufacturing company for over 30 years. He has worked his way up from an entry level position to the senior director of manufacturing. The company has grown and shrunk many times along the way. As projects were secured, they had the flexibility to hire up to 100 people to get the job done. This is how a business should work, right? Well, this is no longer an option. Currently, his company employs 55 people. Under the regulations of Obamacare effective in January, a heavy fine will have to be paid by companies with over 50 employees that do not provide health insurance.
