Just 32 months later, Obama
administration tells us what
ObamaCare plans must have in them

Hot Air, by Mary Katharine Ham

Before Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius pushed back the deadline last week, governors were required to tell the feds by Nov. 16 whether they planned to build their own state-based exchanges for health care or let the federal government do it for them. They were required to submit detailed plans for building those state exchanges by the same day. (Snip)In other words, the federal government was demanding governors finish their detailed plans for implementing state-based health care exchanges four days before it even told them exactly what plans in those exchanges had to look like.

This will go down in history as the biggest "bait and switch" scam in history....

Pelosi was right-- she didn´t know what was in it until it was passed! They were making it all up as they went along, and we fell for it

I still cannot believe the American people are as stupid as they are - re-elect Obama and usher in Obamacare, among so many other stupid things. You really think the "FREE" stuff doesn´t matter to people - they think they will be getting "FREE" healthcare - no cost to them in any way, free meds, no copays, no premiums, walk into the doctor´s office anytime they want, not have to wait, etc. Just wait, folks this will be the DMV on super steroids except people will die as a consequence to this ineptness.

I weep for our once great nation.

The problem I believe starts with what is taught in Government Schools. People are starting to pay attention, but it may be too late.

According to Rush, we could have insured every person in America, who didn´t have healthcare coverage, for 80 million dollars. As it is with Obamacare, the bureaucracy alone will cost Americans 71 billion dollars. This is NOT about healthcare. This is about enslaving a free people.

Cornyn more conservative than Stockman,
relatively speaking, new rankings show
Dallas Morning News [TX], by Todd J. Gillman    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/7/2014 12:39:52 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON — National Journal’s annual rankings are out today and it turns out that Sen. John Cornyn ranks as more conservative among senators than Rep. Steve Stockman ranks in the House. Stockman, R-Clear Lake, one of seven challengers in the March 4 Senate primary, has tried to paint Cornyn as a liberal. Cornyn ranked 14th most conservative in the 100-person Senate. Stockman ranked 138th most conservative among 435 House members — behind all but two of the 24 Texas Republicans, in fact, and about in the middle of all House Republicans. Freshman Sen. Ted Cruz came out near the top of the Senate

U.S. Won’t Seize Taliban Ally’s Cash
Daily Beast, by Eli Lake    Original Article

The White House designated a Taliban ally as a terrorist organization in 2012. Seventeen months later, though, none of the network’s assets have been frozen or blocked. In the last 17 months since the U.S. government financially blacklisted the Haqqani Network, one of the deadliest insurgent groups in Afghanistan and Pakistan, not a single dollar associated with the group has been blocked or frozen, according to U.S. officials and one of the Congressman who oversees the Treasury Department’s financial war on terrorism. But it’s not just the Haqqanis—an ally today in the Taliban’s fight against U.S. troops and the Afghan government—who seem

One was a leader in the Republican Party, reported to be on the short list for a vice-presidential nomination in 2012. The other is a rising star among Democrats, who in less than a year has gone from a little-known state senator to a high-profile campaign for governor. Now, former Virginia Governor Robert McDonnell is under indictment for corruption, his reputation in shambles. And Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has found that her rise to fame has brought harsh scrutiny, as she is forced to explain discrepancies in details of her past. The two politicians´ stories may seem quite different, but

There´s been a lot of blathering about who the front-runner for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination is, and so far I´ve resisted taking part. But I guess I´m kind of curious: Is there much of a case to be made for anyone other than Paul Ryan? On the substantive side, Ryan sure seems like he´s setting himself up for a run. There´s his steady series of "unheralded" anti-poverty outreach trips that always manage to be just heralded enough to get sympathetic press coverage. He brokered a budget deal with Patty Murray that was businesslike and low-drama but didn´t alienate the tea

An Obamacare Report Card

Perhaps the most unpleasant aspect of my otherwise quite enjoyable job as a college professor has been the requirement to assign grades to students. Given that we’re now about halfway through implementation of the Affordable Care Act—which even President Obama is happy to call “Obamacare”—it seems appropriate to assign midterm grades. These are not intended as a forecast of the final grade; moreover, implementation of Obamacare is the responsibility of many thousands of individuals, not just one. Nevertheless, as President Truman’s legendary Oval Office desk sign reminds us, “The buck stops here” when it comes to presidential leadership. So whether

Times wrong to revive Farrow claims
New York Post, by Eliyahu Federman    Original Article

It was wrong for New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof to publish a one-sided, decades-old, discredited claim of child molestation against Woody Allen. This yellow journalism may harm the fight against child sexual abuse, by undermining far more credible claims. The accusation stemmed from a bitter custody dispute between Allen and Mia Farrow, where Farrow ultimately claimed that, in the midst of the dispute, Allen took Dylan Farrow, 7, into an attic-like space at the actress’s Connecticut home and molested her. Yet, again, officials examined and rejected the charges at the time. A team of independent child-abuse specialists at Yale-New Haven Hospital

On a bitterly cold night in January 2000, the blocks around the Ziegfield Theatre were packed—an enormous crowd of invitees snaked around the streets looking for a way to get into the already overcrowded theater. Virtually everyone invited had, remarkably enough, shown up—an unexpected inconvenience. The occasion: the second-season premiere of "The Sopranos," where, it was understood, the cast would be present, actors whose names were, then, still far from familiar. Which was beside the point—people had come just to lay eyes on Tony Soprano; his wife, Carmela; Paulie, Uncle Junior, Silvio, Christopher and the rest; not to mention Dr.

Texan Hispanics Tilt Democratic,
but State Likely to Stay Red
Gallup, by Andrew Dugan    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 2/7/2014 10:14:53     Post Reply
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Texas Hispanics are decidedly Democratic in their political party preferences, 46% to 27%, but that 19-percentage-point Democratic advantage is much smaller in Texas than the average 30-point gap Democrats enjoy among the Hispanic population in the other 49 states. And white Texas residents are decidedly more Republican (61%) than the average among whites residing in other states (48%), complicating whether Texas will turn into a "blue" DemWith an increasingly large minority population, including the second-largest Hispanic population of any state, Texas has the potential to see a once-in-a-generation political re-alignment, which could transform the nation´s largest reliably

Washington - Americans overwhelmingly favor a bill that would give most undocumented immigrants a pathway towards citizenship, according to a new national poll. And a CNN/ORC International survey also indicates that a majority of the public says that the government´s main focus should be legalizing the status of the undocumented rather than border security. The poll was released Thursday, the same day that House Speaker John Boehner signaled any action on immigration is unlikely this year because House Republicans don't trust President Barack Obama on the issue.

Humana Will Get $250-450

A few weeks ago, we were told not to listen to the hype about Obamacare’s troubles, because insurers believed it was all going to be okay. Better yet, even after a rocky start in 2014, it was going to be good for their businesses. And indeed, it is likely that the reason they agreed to let the federal government tell them what they can sell or not and at what price is that they thought this was worth it in exchange for Obamacare’s forcing citizens to buy their products. But what will this bargain take? One large health insurer, Humana,

AUSTIN, Texas — The Wild West tradition of openly carrying your six-shooter on the street has long been banned in Texas under state law. But the next governor could change that. Rising Democratic star and gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis has joined her top Republican rival in supporting a proposed "open carry" law. It would allow people with concealed handgun licenses to wear a pistol on their hip, in full view, while in public. Davis has said she supports expanding gun rights in Texas. In a statement to The Associated Press, she said that includes open-carry — a position that puts her at

House committees are still digging into the IRS political targeting scandal, and based on a hearing Wednesday there´s more to learn. The day produced more evidence blowing apart President Obama´s claims that there was "not even a smidgen of corruption" or political motivation in the IRS handling of groups applying for tax-exempt status. Mr. Obama wants Americans to believe that the targeting resulted from the confusing tax law governing nonprofits, which he says was "difficult" to interpret and resulted in mere "bureaucratic" mistakes. This is also the Administration´s justification for issuing new regulations governing

A private girls´ school in Northern California wanted to incorporate Black History Month into lunch time, so it decided to serve fried chicken, watermelon, and cornbread.

The White House and congressional Democrats tried to limit the fallout Wednesday from the politically damaging conclusion in a Congressional Budget Office report that the Obamacare entitlement creates a major incentive for some people not to work. While some critics focused on a finding by the CBO that Obamacare will result in 2.5 million fewer workers over a decade, conservatives said the bigger fundamental issue highlighted in the report is one familiar to the welfare state — that taxpayer-funded government subsidies provide disincentives for full-time work. “People used to be stuck in jobs because they needed the health insurance,” said

This is either a glaring admission of defeat from the White House or… no, that’s really all it could be. After weeks of defending the cancellation of health plans insurers discontinued in 2013 in order to comply with the Affordable Care Act’s coverage mandates, the White House announced in November of last year that it was urging insurers to reinstate those plans. The catch was, of course, that most insurers would be unable to turn on a dime and reinstate those plans. Furthermore, the administration allowed individual states leeway to determine whether or not they would even allow insurers to reinstate
