Obamacare officials

The Hill, by Sam Baker

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 4/24/2013 2:38:43 PM

The office implementing most of President Obama´s healthcare law is not furloughing its workers as a result of sequestration, its director said Wednesday.Gary Cohen, director of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, said Wednesday that his office has not cut its workers´ hours and pay as a result of the automatic budget cuts that went into effect in March. Republicans have accused the Obama administration of politicizing the sequester by targeting highly visible programs like airport security and White House tours.

They´ll all be furloughed when the entire system collapses under its own weight.

The federally created exchanges won´t be ready in time for 2014. Its going to be ugly when their part isn´t ready for enrollment and it would be far worse if they admitted they had reduced people working on getting ready.

Not much attention is being paid to Obamacare Part II


The Federal government is driving Docs out of business ..We already have a doctor shortage!

Prosecutors are going after Docs...driving them out of business and prosecuting and persecuting them for things that are not illegal ,,,.intimidating them out of business ....and frightening them with a bully government.
Obamacare Part II

When found not guilty of Medicare fraud...Docs are still being sent to prison regardless.... to send other docs message..."Comply"
Think there will be any Doctors left to help you? Think the constitution will exist when these thugs are through?

I urge you to pass this on...if the citizenry does not speak out against things like this we are complicit in our own destruction...And the doctor shortage will become more grave. Please be heard.

This doc is one of the finest CardioThoracic surgeons...who never lost a single patient on the table over 30 years of practice, nor ever had a single malpractice suit in our rather litigious society ...

http://mobile.wnd.com/2013/04/is-a-doctors-charting-error-a-federal-crime/

You can bet if Andrew Breitbart were here he´d be leading the charge with the loudest, strongest voice...What say you?

Michelle Obama to unveil food
marketing limits for schools

Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 2/25/2014 6:09:03 AM     Post Reply
First lady Michelle Obama will unveil a proposal Tuesday that would ban marketing junk food and sodas in schools — an unusually aggressive position for the administration that could draw the ire of school districts, food companies and conservatives. Schools would no longer be able to house vending machines that sport images of their flagship sodas, have posters promoting unhealthy food and drinks or use cups in cafeterias that market high-calorie beverages, among other forms of promotion, according to administration officials.The proposal — part of an updated school wellness policy crafted by the Department of Agriculture — would require marketing of

RALEIGH, N.C. — Appearing on CBS News´ "Face the Nation" Sunday to talk about the winter storm that shut down the state last week, Gov. Pat McCrory sidestepped a pointed question about his position on climate change. The question from host Bob Schieffer came at the end of a segment on North Carolina´s response to the storm. "Governor, a couple of years ago, you made a remark that caught a lot of people´s attention. You said that global warming is ´in God´s hands,´" Schieffer said. "After what you´ve - going through this thing, do you still feel that way? Is

About 15 years ago, Lee Scott heard the news that a Phoenix police officer had been shot and killed in the line of duty. He phoned the main line of the Phoenix Police Department and was forwarded to the employee-assistance unit. Scott, founder of Shadow Mountain Mortuary, had a simple proposal. Let him take care of the entire funeral service, he said. At no cost. The officer was just one of at least a dozen fallen Phoenix police officers who would be laid to rest under Scott’s respectful watch at no cost to the families, police Cmdr. Tracy Montgomery said.

The Koch brothers have a seemingly bottomless pot of cash this election year — and no one knows it better than Sen. Kay Hagan. Americans for Prosperity, a group co-founded by the conservative billionaires, has already dropped $8.2 million on TV, radio and digital ads in an effort to defeat the North Carolina Democrat. According to sources tracking media buys, the group has so far spent more in North Carolina than all Democratic outside groups in every Senate race in the country — combined.

Appeals court: NC cannot
offer only anti-abortion plates
WRAL News [Raleigh,NC], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Fiesta del sol- 2/11/2014 2:33:25 PM     Post Reply
Richmond, Va. — A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld a 2012 court ruling that North Carolina´s decision to issue special anti-abortion license plates is unconstitutional because the state doesn´t offer similar plates supporting abortion rights. In a unanimous ruling, a three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that the proposed "Choose Life" plates represent "blatant viewpoint discrimination squarely at odds with the First Amendment. "The decision upholds a December 2012 ruling by U.S. District Judge James Fox in Raleigh, which came 13 months after he blocked the state from issuing the plates while a lawsuit by the American Civil Liberties Union was pending.

GOP plan to repair
Obamacare,not repeal it
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article

There´s no doubt the vast majority of Republicans in Congress would repeal Obamacare if they could. Most GOP "alternative" bills begin with a clause to repeal the Affordable Care Act before proceeding to outline new policies to put in its place. Of course, GOP lawmakers don´t have any hope of actually repealing the law as long as Barack Obama, and his veto pen, are in the White House.Now some Republicans are looking at what might be done to undo as much as possible of the Democrats´ national health care scheme without actually repealing it. If Obamacare´s problems continue to mount

The air froze over on “The View” when Barbara Walters made a catty comment about Elizabeth Vargas’ battle with alcohol addiction. As “20/20” anchor Vargas appeared on the show Thursday to discuss her recovery, she explained how she kept her battle a secret from her ABC colleagues.But Walters snipped, “We all knew!”Vargas looked “like she had been slapped in the face, and the atmosphere turned Polar Vortex,” noted one spy. The barbed comment did not impress ABC brass, who thought Barbara was out of line, we are told. Walters later called Vargas to apologize.Last night, they made light of the cringe-worthy

The Wake County Public School System has removed an assignment from its middle-school history curriculum after a Knightdale mother complained that it was racially insensitive. Amaya Melvin´s eighth-grade class at East Wake Middle School is studying the Civil War, and the students were given an essay assignment entitled "I am a slave." "For her to have to put herself in the shoes of a slave, for her to complete the assignment, she had to be a slave at the moment. I didn´t think that was appropriate," said Amaya´s mother, Ariel Melvin-Hall, who is black. "It´s harsh. It cuts deep."

Short list of providers for cheap

Some Arizonans who secured health coverage through the federal marketplace are now finding that their new plans drastically limit the providers they can use. Metro Phoenix and Tucson residents who signed up for plans with so-called narrow networks have discovered fewer options for primary-care doctors, specialists, hospitals, pharmacies, labs and clinics. And some rural Arizonans purchasing the least-expensive plan in their communities have discovered that the nearest participating doctor is 200 miles away. Insurers and brokers acknowledge that some consumers are confused by the narrow networks, a strategy health insurers embrace to lower costs.

Call it what you want -- anti-gay or religious rights -- but if Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signs a controversial bill, you might not be calling Arizona the home of the 2015 Super Bowl. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, S.B. 1062, is the current controversy du jour out of Arizona, and the National Football League is with the opposition. “Our policies emphasize tolerance and inclusiveness and prohibit discrimination based on age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other improper standard,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told USA Today. “We are following the issue in Arizona and will continue to do so should

Audio of an internal VA meeting obtained by TheDC confirms that VA officials in Los Angeles intentionally canceled backlogged patient exam requests.“The committee was called System Redesign and the purpose of the meeting was to figure out ways to correct the department’s efficiency.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney responded Monday night to the Obama administration’s proposal to cut the U.S. Army to its lowest point since before World War II. Calling into Fox News’ “Hannity,” Cheney declared the proposed cuts to be “absolutely dangerous” and “just devastating.” “I have not been a strong supporter of Barack Obama. But this really is over the top. It does enormous long-term damage to our military,” Cheney said. ”They act as though it is like highway spending and you can turn it on and off.

She may not look anywhere near her 76 years but Jane Fonda says she is well aware of her age. The Hollywood legend – who has made her career in an industry which isn´t exactly kind to aging actresses - admits she has been brought to tears on more than one occasion recently as she comes to terms with her own mortality. In a thoughtful blog post entitled ´Crying´, which has since been removed, Jane wrote: ´[I´ve been thinking], how come my tears are so close to the surface?

Mitt Romney on Tuesday joined a growing chorus of Republicans urging the Arizona governor to veto a bill that would allow business owners to cite their religious beliefs in refusing service to gay people. The former Massachusetts governor tweeted at Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R), saying it “is right” to veto the bill passed by the state legislature last week. Brewer has not said whether she will sign or veto the measure. However, a number of media outlets have reported people close to her expect her to veto it. Brewer told CNN she would weigh both sides before deciding the right thing to

It has the makings of a royal mess for “King Barack.” Monday morning’s Supreme Court argument about the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate greenhouse gases went badly for the Obama administration — so much so that the real question before the justices seemed to be how severe the EPA’s loss would be. The administration’s solicitor general, Donald Verrilli, pleaded with the justices to recognize the “urgent problem” of climate change, because the “threat to future generations gets worse” with each passing year. But as the argument played out, the court’s swing justice, Anthony Kennedy, made clear that he

Were he alive today, Richard Nixon would have to doff his hat to Barack Obama. Compared with how the Obama administration has swept under the rug the Benghazi attacks of September 11, 2012, Nixon’s attempt to cover up the Watergate burglary was rank amateurism. To be fair, Nixon’s team of Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, and Dean were not in the same league as Obama’s, which includes not only his cabinet but most of the national media and much of Congress. If a president were intent on covering something up—something big, such as an illegal gun walking operation to Mexico or a dereliction
