But next year, her payments will jump $92 a month, or 57%. Schwartz, 56, said her new monthly cost of $254 is still about half of what she was paying for coverage before Obamacare. But she worries that those premiums will only continue to rise. Already, she said, the bill has doubled in the program’s first three years. (Snip) Almost 90% of Californians getting insurance from the exchange receive taxpayer'provided assistance to help them afford the premiums.

I was born around 2 am, so the actual hour of my birth passed while I was asleep. The first screw up in my life was bureaucratic and happened shortly after I entered the world when whoever filled out my birth certificate – which was done by hand with a fountain pen – put an “S” on the family name of Daniel, and I became the first and only Daniels in my family.

One key sticking point with liberals today regarding this news is that it’s so cryptic and vaguely'worded that Clinton’s opponents can interpret it any number of ways even though there’s no actual “re'opening” of the investigation.

New Editor'in'Chief Arthur “Chucky” Browne is said to be exploring a move of up to 40 jobs to a facility in the Jersey City printing plant. In addition, 15 to 30 newsroom jobs at the struggling tabloid will be eliminated between Election Day and Thanksgiving, sources said. The New Jersey news operation was supposed to be a temporary fix implemented in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, which flooded the paper’s Lower Manhattan office.

Toner began the State Department daily press briefing by telling Associated Press reporter Matt Lee that he already knew what the topic of the first question would be. Lee asked Toner what the State Department knew of the FBI’s actions and what may be involved in the reopened investigation. “First, what do we know? Not much more than you know, in fact. About the same,” Toner said. “We just learned about this Video=> Hillary Clinton Ignores Shouted Questions About New Email Investigation Fri, 28 48 2016 09:48:03 GMT 2986533972c6ad014ad4856d6dfafa0081efb9b9 Gateway Pundit, by Kristinn Taylor Posted By: JoniTx- Fri, 28 48 2016 09:48:03 GMT Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton ignored shouted questions by her traveling press pool on the tarmac in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, about the FBI announcing Friday it was re'opening its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server after previously undisclosed Clinton emails were discovered. Clinton gave the press a smile and a wave as she walked down the stairs from her campaign plane Hill Force One and entered her waiting Secret Service vehicle without saying anything. The press was kept waiting on the tarmac as Clinton reportedly met with advisers on the plane for thirty minutes. UPDATE: The AP Paul Ryan Says Hillary Shouldn’t Be Briefed On Classified Information Fri, 28 40 2016 09:40:46 GMT a681e0dd31212f1cd67a670c69f1354f437b349c Daily Caller, by Juliegrace Brufke Posted By: Pluperfect- Fri, 28 40 2016 09:40:46 GMT House Speaker Paul Ryan said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton should not be briefed on classified information in the wake of the FBI’s announcement it is reopening its investigation into her private email server Friday. The Wisconsin Republican blasted the former secretary of state for her carelessness when handling the country’s top secrets. “Yet again, Hillary Clinton has nobody but herself to blame. She was entrusted with some of our nation’s most important secrets, and she betrayed that trust by carelessly mishandling highly classified information,” he said in a statement. “This decision, long overdue, is the result of her reckless use of New federal rules may ease student loan forgiveness Fri, 28 35 2016 09:35:34 GMT 0bc4dacd05d122789305bf98aa31cc87b675d0fd United Press International, by Amy R. Connolly Posted By: JoniTx- Fri, 28 35 2016 09:35:34 GMT WASHINGTON' The Obama administration on Friday announced new rules intended to help students get their federal loans forgiven in the case of fraud or misrepresentation by the school. The U.S. Department of Education wrote the new regulations in response to an outcry from thousands of students from the now'shuttered Corinthian Colleges chain, which suddenly closed and sold some of its campuses last year. The rules overhaul the department´s borrower defense to repayment, which allows federal student loans to be forgiven if a school uses deceptive or illegal practices to encourage students to borrow money for higher education. "To protect students The FBI’s October Surprise Is Devastating for Hillary Clinton Fri, 28 34 2016 09:34:04 GMT 244d2ccc8619d52bdef8db00bceef234f38ff06a National Review Online, by David French Posted By: Pluperfect- Fri, 28 34 2016 09:34:04 GMT The Democratic presidential nominee is again under criminal investigation less than two weeks before the election. On Friday afternoon, the FBI uncorked the mother of all October surprises, announcing in a letter to Congress that it has re'opened its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s “personal email server.” The reason? During an “unrelated investigation”* it uncovered e'mails that “appear to be pertinent” to Clinton’s case. It is seeking to determine whether the e'mails contain classified information and can’t yet determine their significance. Stripped of the legalese, it means that Hillary is back in legal jeopardy.

The New York Times is among sites reporting that the FBI found the emails in question on devices belonging to disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner, husband of Hillary´s Girl Friday, Huma Abedin. Busted once before for sexting women not his wife, Weiner appears to have been up to his old tricks when, in September, news broke that he had been sending lewd texts to an underage girl. As part of that investigation, prosecutors subpoenaed Weiner´s cellphone and Obama blames news media for Obamacare´s big problems Fri, 28 31 2016 09:31:17 GMT 42202c6230bc07073346fb573f91d19e0154afa6 Washington Examiner, by Nicole Duran Posted By: PageTurner- Fri, 28 31 2016 09:31:17 GMT President Obama told activists they need to fight through a wave of negative press stories about Obamacare this year to ensure enrollment numbers go up, and said plans are still affordable despite stories saying premiums will rise sharply in 2017. "We´re not going to get that much help from the media," Obama told the more than 25,000 volunteers who joined a White House call with Obama Thursday afternoon. "This is going to be a ground game." Obama said volunteers will have to help "clear the mud off the windshield" to get people to sign up.

CARL BERNSTEIN: Well, there´s no question that the e'mails have always been the greatest threat to her candidacy for president, that her conduct in regard to the e'mails is really indefensible and if there was going to be more information that came out, it was the one thing, as I said on the air last night, actually that could really perhaps affect this election.

Just this morning the Miami Herald noted that two arrests were made in Miami'Dade county on election fraud charges including efforts by one woman to illegally register voters (some of whom were dead...a recurring theme this election cycle) while another 74'year'old election worker was charged with actually "illegally marking ballots".

The Chicago Fire Department responded to an emergency 2'11 alarm at O’Hare, where the plane was on the ground, according to fire media affairs.

The F.B.I. is investigating illicit text messages that Mr. Weiner sent to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina.

The FBI normally avoids acting just before an election in order to avoid charges of political manipulation (snip) The very first thing to note is that Comey made no mention of a grand jury. The emails whose existence he learned of may have been the result of a subpoena in another investigation. If that is the case, further subpoenas are quite possible, a tool that was left unused in the investigation to date.

Mr. Comey said his agents learned of new emails “pertinent” to their probe while working on an unrelated case. He said his agents need to review those messages to see whether they contain classified information and whether they affect his previous decision. In July, Mr. Comey announced that while he determined Mrs. Clinton did mishandle classified information, she was too inept to know the risks
