Some families to be priced
out of health overhaul

WASHINGTON— Some families could get priced out of health insurance due to what´s being called a glitch in President Barack Obama´s overhaul law. IRS regulations issued Wednesday failed to fix the problem as liberal backers of the president´s plan had hoped. As a result, some families that can´t afford the employer coverage that they are offered on the job will not be able to get financial assistance from the government to buy private health insurance on their own. How many people will be affected is unclear. The Obama administration says its hands were tied by the way Congress

Can´t Obama just order insurance companies to give them free coverage?

Or is that one of things he can´t do because he is not King.

Should the poor suffer because O is not King?

So if the enforcement to mandate everyone to buy health insurance is done thru the tax code and...49% of people don´t pay taxes...how is that going to work?

Mistake???? Ohhhh no. This was no mistake. This is quite deliberate. The progressive movement has always hated the working poor. Always. They were the undesirables that abortion was to have gotten rid of. Now that President Obama has no need for voters, they can be disposed of. They will be forced into a rationed care system that will refuse to care for any lifestyle related illnesses (smoking, obesity, drinking) and left to die. This will weed out the "untermensch" and control the population in line with Agenda 21 goals. Leaving only the educated and elite. With fully automated farming and manufacturing no need for the "little people" who just consume and reproduce.

Already happening. Church acquaintance has a teenage special needs child who has required tube feeding with prescriptive formula since forever. In Nov Mom was told by pharmacy that kid´s food was no longer covered with Obamacare changes. Now they have to buy Ensure type products to sustain which give many complications to digestion, let alone the cost. Mom & Dad feel this is the first track in the cattle chute to the death panel. Please pray for them & how many thousands of others facing these determinations by the Fatherland.

FTA: "The Obama administration says its hands were tied by the way Congress wrote the law."

Is this a joke? I distinctly remember over one-half of Congress (the Republicans) begging for time to read the ACA so everyone would know what was in it before the vote. I recall Nancy Pelosi´s infamous statement, "We have to pass the bill so we can find out what´s in it."

It would be interesting to learn exactly who, and/or what organization(s), is responsible for this mess. Until then, I can only say, "Thanks for nothing, John Roberts."

The people who wrote this article need to do a little bit more research, as it was not a bipartisan Congress that passed Obama Care, it was the Democrats in Congress who passed that law, as not one Republican voted for the law. When Obama blames the Congress for the many deficiencies in Obama Care, he should be directing his complaints to the Democrats in Congress as they are the people who passed the law.

Propaganda Alert... ObieCare only passed by bending the rules so only dems could pass it. No matter how hard they lie, peeps know the truth. Medicare drug co-pays are increased to +300% of 2012 cost, depending on the drug. We are already suffering.

There´s no glitch in this law.What we´re seeing is an intentional effort to corner a relative handful of middle class whites paying the price for having the gumption to be self sufficient.What this says is there´s no escape hatch for the people Obama targeted to begin with.

It´s an absolute mathematical impossibility for the shrinking workforce to finance the exorbitant cost of this plan which will add 50 million more people to an already broke medicaid system,many of whom don´t even belong here. Just take the costs of one illegal mexican get kidney dialysis treatments for months on end.

People that pay for their health care are going to be priced out and will not be able to afford a doctor´s visit. Only those that get their visits free will be at the doctor´s office. The payors will have to get back rather than pay the $500 for themselves and the 5 free ones in front they will have to wait on. A neighbor calls an ambulance all the time -- $2500 a call and free, but not for me.

IRS Among agencies that hired
license plate-tracking vendor
Bloomberg News, by Kathleen Miller    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/19/2014 7:40:54 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies awarded about $415,000 in contracts to a license plate-tracking company before Homeland Security leaders dropped a plan for similar work amid privacy complaints. Federal offices such as the Forest Service and the U.S. Air Force´s Air Combat Command chose Livermore, Calif.-based Vigilant Solutions to provide access to license plate databases or tools used to collect plate information, according to government procurement records compiled by Bloomberg. Vigilant, a closely held company, has received such work since 2009. In February, Jeh Johnson, secretary of the Department of Homeland Security

WASHINGTON— A Western official says the United States is considering deploying about 150 soldiers for military exercises to begin in Poland and Estonia in the next few weeks. The exercises would follow Russia´s buildup of forces near its border with Ukraine and its annexation last month of Ukraine´s Crimean Peninsula. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said earlier this week that the U.S. is looking for ways to reassure its NATO allies of its strong commitment to collective defense. The Western official says ground exercises in Poland and Estonia would last about two weeks but that such exercises would continue on a

This week’s POLITICO Magazine contains an uncharacteristic show of gratitude from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to President Barack Obama. Under the headline “A bipartisan message to Iran,” the senator thanks the president for signing his S 2195 bill into law, which prevents anyone who has engaged in espionage or terrorism against the U.S. from gaining entry to the country via the United Nations. “Thanks to President Obama for joining a unanimous Congress and signing S 2195 into law,” Cruz begins his piece. By giving the president “the authority to deny visas to United Nations ambassadors who are known terrorists,” he

U.S. Border Control agents detained 147 people suspected of being in the country illegally from a stash house Thursday afternoon in Alton — shortly after 81 people were found hiding in makeshift huts in McAllen. The 147 people were discovered in a house at the 8900 block of North Bentsen Palm Drive. Border Patrol spokesman Danny Tirado said he didn’t recall the exact time of the bust, but said it was not too long after the 81 people were found in a brushy area of McAllen northwest of Sprague and North 10th Street about 1 p.m. The 147 people detained

Reports are flying across the Internet about the possibility that Apple’s satellite map app just snapped a pic of the elusive “Loch Ness monster.” Long speculated to be a relative of the dinosaur-era plesiosaur, many have chalked the rumors up to baseless monster talk. Until now. (Photograph) Could this satellite imagery hold a clue that scientists on the hunt have been missing? Could the Loch Ness monster be real?

Bunkersville, Nevada — Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday. A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkersville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years. Bundy told Breitbart News the only communication he has received from the BLM recently has been

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent
