U.S. Extends a Deadline
for States on Coverage

New York Times, by Robert Pear

Original Article

Posted By:SoCalGal, 11/10/2012 6:49:38 PM

WASHINGTON — With many states lagging far behind schedule, the Obama administration said Friday that it would extend the deadline for them to submit plans for health insurance exchanges, the online markets where millions of Americans are expected to obtain private coverage subsidized by the federal government. The original Nov. 16 deadline will be extended to Dec. 14 — and in some cases to Feb. 15, the administration said. The Congressional Budget Office predicts that 25 million people will obtain coverage through the new online shopping malls known as insurance exchanges.

Comments:
Most will have their premiums subsidized an average of more than $5k per person. On the fed´s nickel. That´s us. The taxpayers.

I want all those Obama waivers canceled. I want Congress included in the same Law as the rest of us. It is UNAmerican to not apply his mandates equally. Court challenge necessary.

Rick Perry has said and repeated that Texas will not implement it. Jindal in Louisiana won´t either. There are other states balking.

Why would a state want to run an exchange? Washington will eventually dictate every word and every comma and assign inspectors to audit every decision of the state exchange.

And Washington can change the rules whenever it wishes. Rules for one state will differ from rules in another.

So the incentive for creating a state exchange must be money. Mystery money that somehow ends up in the pockets of state officials.

Do nothing. ObamaCare is Washington´s plan, they can run it.

Life with only one master one master, Washington, will be simpler in every respect. Less complex for the medical profession, insurance companies, and patients.

Imperial dictate. Can anyone have a clue what 2016 will look like? Will The Won even consider giving up his position with his self-deluding belief that the people support him? Inquiring minds want to know.

The final say on this will be govt run healthcare, just what Pres Obama has always wanted in the first place. States that object should do what LA is doing, petition to withdraw from the Union. Now that is a story not getting much coverage.

This is far from over because the law as written is unworkable. Remember that while the Supreme Court upheld the mandate on individuals as a tax it also tossed parts of the law because the Federal government exceeded its bounds in ordering the states take certain actions.

Obamacare is already hurting those who assumed they would be helped or would be unaffected. It will get only get worse.

So far, our Gov. Heineman in Nebraska has resisted. I´m counting on our Republican governor firewalls. That´s about all we have left.

No waivers for anyone. If Obamacare doesn´t allow Catholics their conscience, then Muslims can´t be allowed to opt out (as I have read they will be).

Unions got the bulk of the waivers. Cancel those and let union members pay the fine for having gold-plated health insurance.

The National Security Agency has eyes and ears everywhere. At least, so we thought. In 2012, during a classified but widely-known operation at Fort Meade, MD, government crypotographers and developers downloaded the OpenSSL source code, as it does with dozens of other software published on the Web. The operation´s objective was to find weaknesses in the library and exploit those vulnerabilities as part of wider efforts by the intelligence agency to conduct mass-scale surveillance. Executives and senior officials heralded it as one of the biggest vulnerability discoveries in the intelligence agency´s recent

The legacy of Mickey Rooney, who died on April 6 in California at age 93, goes far beyond the silver screen. The prolific film star did a service for millions of elderly in this country by helping to publicize the scourge of financial elder abuse. Whether it´s fraudulent sweepstakes phone calls, investments, grandparent scams, or the far more insidious deceptions by neighbors, friends, employees, and relatives, such exploitation is rampant and on the rise.(Snip) In September 2011, Rooney´s court-appointed conservator, Michael.

Los Angeles - A shallow 5.1-magnitude earthquake rocked the Los Angeles area Friday causing power cuts, gas leaks and bursting water mains, and stopping rides at Disneyland. While no injuries were reported, objects fell from shelves and furniture toppled over, according to photos posted on social media, while TV pictures showed a car flipped over by a rockslide. (Snip) At Dodger Stadium, the quake briefly interrupted the baseball game between the LA Dodgers and the Angels.

These should be avoidable Measles has made a comeback, at least in New York City, where as many as 19 cases have been confirmed. New York City isn’t an anomaly, though. Diseases that are and have been avoidable in the U.S. thanks to vaccines, are resurfacing all across the country. Measles, for instance, was considered wiped out in 2000, but there have been several outbreaks in the past few years.

If the news last month that the prevalence of obesity among American preschoolers had plunged 43 percent in a decade sounded too good to be true, that´s because it probably was, researchers say. When the study was published in late February in the Journal of the American Medical Association, no one had a ready explanation for that astounding finding by researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.(Snip) Anti-obesity campaigners credited everything from changes to the federal nutrition program for low-income women and children to the elimination of trans-fats from fast food, more physical activity in child-care

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

   

 



 
Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.
