HHS ´encourages´ insurers to fix
problems created by Obamacare

Washington Examiner, by Philip Klein

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/13/2013 6:36:55 PM

During the Obamacare rollout, stories have spread about millions of Americans losing their current health insurance coverage, preferred doctors and hospitals as plans restrict networks to comply with the law, and losing their prescription drug coverage. On Thursday afternoon, the Department of Health and Human Services said it was “strongly encouraging” insurers to help the department fix a raft of problems created by the rocky rollout of President Obama’s health care law. Among the guidance the HHS announced: — It is requiring insurers to accept payments until Dec. 31 for coverage starting on Jan. 1. It is also “urging” insurers

Comments:
There is no way anyone can say this is not intentional to create this complete chaos and upheavel. I feel so terribly sorry for those poor, suffering individuals (like Jim Hoft) who are caught up in this horrific nightmare all in the name of political power. It´s the most upsetting thing I have ever seen in this country during my lifetime. And it was all planned by the heinous, malevolent Democrats.

OP I agree. This is exactly the plan by King Obama. Chaos, disruptions, anger, etc., will all end up in the single payer plan (to the government of course). It´s all done on purpose. Evil people in 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

If insurers have any sense, they´d tell HHS to go pound sand.

Soap Opera Actress Punches
Ex-Boyfriend George Soros in Face
Mediaite, by Tina Nguyen    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/12/2014 8:58:45 PM     Post Reply
That’s not an exaggerated headline at all: according to Manhattan court records, an angry Brazilian soap opera actress named Adriana Ferreyr literally punched her ex-boyfriend George Soros in the head during a deposition, and hit at least three other people. As stated in testimony from Soros’s lawyers, the punch-fest took place last week during a private deposition for a multi-million dollar lawsuit Ferreyr filed against Soros in 2011. Ferreyr, 30, is demanding that Soros, 83, give her the $1.9 million condo in the Upper East Side he promised her while they were dating. (Soros eventually gave the condo to his new

Debt Up $2.7T in 2.5 Yrs Under
Boehner Debt-Limit Deals
Cybercast News Service, by Terence P. Jeffrey    Original Article

The debt of the U.S. government has increased by $2.678 trillion in the 2.5 years since House Speaker John Boehner (R.-Ohio) completed his first deal to put legislation increasing the debt limit through a Republican-controlled House of Representatives. On Aug. 2, 2011, President Barack Obama signed legislation, approved by the Boehner-led House, permitting the Treasury to increase the debt by $900 billion. Since then, the debt limit has been repeatedly suspended by legislation that needed to pass through the Republican-controlled House. Yesterday, the House once again passed legislation to suspend the debt limit—this time through March 15, 2015, which is after November’s

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) says President Obama "should continue to expand on his executive authority to stop the deportation of certain groups of immigrants in this country.” Gutierrez made the comments during a Wednesday morning appearance on C-Span while discussing the future of immigration reform. The Illinois Democrat was asked if the president should stop America’s deportation policy. “I think the president should continue to expand on his executive authority to stop the deportations of certain groups of immigrants in this country,” Gutierrez said. “I think there are American citizen children, millions of them, millions of American citizen children, which

   

 

  


 
So Kirsten Powers Says that She’s
Tired of Defending Obamacare Too
PJ Media, by Bryan Preston    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/12/2014 8:11:32 PM     Post Reply
Kirsten Powers has more of an excuse to defend Obamacare than Ron Fournier. The latter is supposedly a journalist. Powers worked for Hillary Clinton and is a career Democrat operative. Up to now, attacking Obamacare would have been a career-limiting move — especially with Hillary poised to run for a sequel to the squalor that was the 1990s Clinton White House. But now that Hillary’s gearing up for a presidential run, she will necessarily have to distance herself from Obama and his policies. Anyone who wants to work for Hillary must do likewise. Powers also says she is pro-life, yet supports Democrats

Senate Conservatives Fund levels
harshest attack yet on Mitch McConnell
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article

On Tuesday, the Senate Conservatives Fund called for the ouster of House Speaker John Boehner. Now the SCF, originally founded by Sen. Jim DeMint and run by a close DeMint associate, has launched the harshest attack yet on its No. 1 target, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. In a new ad based in part on supposition, misleading reporting, questionable assertions and a single (erroneously cited) poll, the SCF likens McConnell´s leadership of the Senate to Internal Revenue Service harassment of conservatives. "Bullying. Threats. Intimidation," the ad begins. "The IRS? No. Try Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican Leader. That´s right. Mitch McConnell

Amnesty Faster at Head Table

The SEIU leader who fasted for 22 days last year in Washington to pressure Congress to pass amnesty sat at the head table with President Barack Obama at the State Dinner for French President François Hollande Tuesday. It was feast, not famine, for Eliseo Medina, who sat together at the head table with Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, Hollande, and even comedian Stephen Colbert, according to pool reports. The Obamas expressed their support repeatedly last year for the "Fast For Families" advocates, and President Obama even visited the fasters after the Thanksgiving holiday.

a dramatic debt vote

Sen. Ted Cruz and the GOP rank and file ultimately backed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Minority Whip John Cornyn into a corner on the debt ceiling increase. The leaders had wanted to allow the toxic measure to pass with just 51 votes so all 45 Republicans could vote against it. But Cruz, the Texas tea party freshman, demanded approval by a 60-vote threshold. So McConnell and Cornyn tried to persuade more than five Republicans in safe seats to support the plan, but they were met with stiff resistance. No Republican wanted to be vote No. 60 on a

The plot to make Big Food pay
Politico, by Helena Bottemiller Evich    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 2/12/2014 4:15:02 PM     Post Reply
Lawyers are pitching state attorneys general in 16 states with a radical idea: make the food industry pay for soaring obesity-related health care costs. It’s a move straight from the playbook of the Big Tobacco takedown of the 1990s, which ended in a $246 billion settlement with 46 states, a ban on cigarette marketing to young people and the Food and Drug Administration stepping in to regulate. There are plenty of naysayers, just as there were in 1994 when Mike Moore, Mississippi’s attorney general, famously suggested suing the tobacco industry. But a number of nutrition and legal experts think a similar

Stop feeding starving children, or else! The American Humanist Association sent that message to a school in Robbinsdale, Minn., accusing them of violating the U.S. Constitution by allowing students to participate in a community service project at a church that involved preparing meals for impoverished children in Haiti. The humanists got their britches in a bunch after the family of a student at the School of Engineering and Arts objected to the project being held at Calvary Lutheran Church. “The school has clearly violated the Establishment Clause,” AHA attorney Monica Miller wrote in a threatening letter to the school and district officials.

Congress approves increase in

The Senate passed a suspension of the limit on federal borrowing Wednesday, ensuring that the Treasury does not default on its more than $17 trillion debt for another year. With the Republican-controlled House approving the "clean" debt ceiling increase Tuesday without any concessions, the legislation now goes to President Obama for his signature. The votes came two weeks before the Feb. 27 deadline, after which financial experts warned of havoc in financial markets if Congress hadn’t acted. The final passage vote came after a dramatic, hour-long vote to end debate and assure Republicans did not filibuster the legislation. Needing 60 votes, including

White House transcript hides Obama’s
chattering-class gaffe [Video]

White House officials have quietly changed an official transcript to hide President Barack Obama’s embarrassing historical error during his international press conference with French President Francois Hollande. Obama’s error came when he misnamed Alexis de Tocqueville, a clear-eyed Frenchman who explained the subtle miracle of American culture and democracy in the 1830s. His book is a classic, partly because his insights about Americans’ social equality and civic society have become commonplace among centrists and conservatives. But Obama called him “Alex” in front of the French and U.S. press, and while facing banks of TV cameras. The White House’s official transcript,

It´s no surprise that Barack Obama´s authoritarian streak is revealing itself at last. It was always there; clearly apparent in his rhetoric (e.g., his envy of Chinese president Xi Jin-ping´s powers), his abuse of executive orders, his threats against Congress, his sultan with fly-whisk attitudes toward his opposition, and even his vacations, which reek more of third-world trash gamboling on the Riviera than any American leader (George W. Bush settled his mind by clearing brush in Texas, Reagan at his ranch in Santa Barbara. Obama unfortunately finds the brush already cleared in Martha´s Vineyard and Hawaii.)

I mean, that shape is what we call the princess shape. It´s got that sort of poof at the bottom that´s very sort of billowy at the same time. It´s strapless.

From its inception, the strategy behind the Obama administration’s implementation of ObamaCare has been simple: to frontload the benefits and postpone the pain and costs of this massive government intrusion into the private sector for as long as possible. This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term. Over the course of the last year, as the president’s signature accomplishment debuted with a

Michelle Obama chose Venezuelan-American designer Carolina Herrera for the gown she wore Tuesday to the state dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande. The formal, ornate style of the sumptuous gown by Ms Herrera reflected French aesthetics, from the intricate beaded black bodice, to the train and full skirt in a color called liberty blue. ´From the White House to Versailles it´s not that far,´ said Susan Swimmer, author of Michelle Obama: First Lady of Fashion and Style. ´It´s much more keeping in a French aesthetic than I´ve seen her wear before.

Michelle Obama´s lust for luxury has always been a bit of a problem for her husband and Democrats in general. Jetting off to five star resorts with a large entourage has too much dissonance with the rhetoric denouncing inequality currently in favor with the left. But the First Lady has now outdone herself, and because a picture is worth a thousand words, the damage may be a bit more serious than the occasional grumble over designer shoes and livin´ large. After all, millions of Americans are mired in unemployment, underemployment, and hopelessness. So in the face of all this, Michelle

President Obama has repeatedly suspended parts of the Affordable Care Act without the consent of Congress. The latest unilateral action happened Monday night, when the administration announced another delay of the employer mandate, the law´s provision that businesses with more than 50 employees must provide their employees with insurance starting in 2014 or pay large fines. In July, the president decreed the mandate wouldn´t be enforced at all in 2014, and last night administration officials declared that businesses with 50 to 99 employees wouldn´t be penalized in 2015. Republicans have denounced such actions as "lawless." But if what the president has
