HHS releases 1,296 pages
of regulations ahead of
holiday weekend

Washington Examiner, by Philip Klein

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/3/2014 9:26:19 PM

As Americans scrambled ahead of the July Fourth holiday weekend on Thursday afternoon, the Department of Health and Human Services released 1,296 pages of new regulations dealing with payment rates to doctors and hospitals. The timing of the news release is part of a long pattern for President Obama´s administration, which has often used holidays as an opportunity to dump dense regulatory changes when most reporters and Americans are focused on their holiday plans. The release came at 4:15 p.m. Last year, the Obama administration used the days surrounding the July 4th holiday as an opening to announce a delay

Comments:
What new horrors are contained in those regulations? I´m sure doctors and Americans will be overjoyed about what is in them. s/o From what I scrolled through it is all a bunch of mumbo jumbo that is confusing and outrageous. They just never quit.

I scanned about 15 pages of it and the bottom line is that calculating what you can charge is a 15 step process. I´m sure there are payoffs to the unions, but radiation treatments and oncology get hammered. This appears to have elements of price fixing and denial of availability of the most effective treatment. Sounds like we are going to have a lot of people dieing because after signing up for Obamacare they can no longer get treatments they had been getting.

It´s beyond time for doctors, nurses, PAs, etc. and up citizens to ignore these regulations. If Barry and his sycophants can ignore laws and regulations with impunity, I don´t see why the rest of us can´t.

Too right, #3. It´s time to coin a new political phrase and act...call it the Civil Veto. Laws born of corruption, Marxism, etc. will simply be ignored. This should also apply to court cases eg gay marriage.

Even the federal leviathan can´t deal with a flood of noncompliance. They can throw their tantrums...we will merely ignore them.

Lawlessness you say? When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary.....

I, too, waded into this document a bit...it´s insanity writ large.

#2, on Page 74, they admit they don´t know how to adjust "time estimates", so they have two "projects" planned.
One will "convene groups of physicians from a range of specialties", and the other is being farmed out to the RAND Corporation, with a report due this fall.

Talk about a "make work" project!
This is geeks on steroids.

If denial of services is going to be the new norm for Obamacare, will private insurance companies jump on the chance to adopt the same regulations? This is where the price spike will occur, when you have to pay much more to get the same health care you were accustomed to getting.

I believe we fought a war against tyranny once. Obama is pushing us in that same direction. He mistakenly believes that Americans have no fight in them and looking at the pathetic politicians in Washington DC, you´d think he was right, but we are not politicians. We are Americans and you can just push us so far. All those law enforcement and military types are going to have to pick a side and I believe they won´t choose to be on the side of a sniveling little tyrant.

Maybe I´m wrong but this document dump seems to be exclusively for Medicare & Medicaid. This is in addition to the over 20,000 pages of regulations for 0bamaCare. What an underhanded way to discourage future doctors to-be & those currently still accepting Medicare/Medicaid patients.

One day the Congress will figure out that they cannot delegate to the Executive Branch the authority to write regulations. The Executive Branch agencies write regulations the spell out how the Executive plans to enforce the laws passed by the Congress and signed into law by the President. We have regulations that interpret law to mean whatever the Executive wants the laws to mean. See the ACA and regulations regarding contraception. These concepts were not found in the law but created by the Executive branch agency, Health & Human Services.

This is true for every Executive Branch agency. See Treasury, EPA, Education, Labor, and on and on and on.

Obama is certifiably insane, a psychopath/sociopath. That is a legitimate reason for impeachment and removal from the Oval Office. Notice to Congress, do it soon or the American people will. I promise there will be no dignity in our methods and there will be no further need for Congress once we get started.

President Obama has antisocial personality disorder. It´s as clear as the nose on one´s face. Both he and his spouse are self-absorbed, self-entitled, authorative fanatical ideologues. There is no room for criticism or even discussion. Their´s is the only way..period. In other words they have the makings of a world class pair of fascist dictators. How sad for America...

Trouble in the St. Louis suburbs has rescued President Obama’s vacation. He can play all 18 holes at the country club now, safe in the knowledge that he’s distracting voters from all the scandals, mismanagement and foreign and domestic policies that are the legacy of his administration. A midlevel bureaucrat at Russia’s Foreign Ministry mocks the United States for the “burning internal problems” in Ferguson, Mo. The barbarians of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, sometimes called the Islamic State and usually known as ISIS, behead an American journalist, a believing Christian named James Foley, and continue to

Bill O’Reilly returned from vacation early to deliver one of his most livid commentaries ever. At the top of his “talking points memo” segment, O’Reilly slammed Rev. Al Sharpton for what he said was Sharpton’s “garbage” rallies in Ferguson, MO., where the MSNBC host said he “had enough” of white cops shooting black men. “Al Sharpton has the nerve to insult the American police community,” O’Reilly said, “men and women risking their lives to protect us.

Don’t watch the unabridged online video of the American journalist James Foley being murdered by an apparently British jihadist. I have seen it - and I wish I hadn’t. The image of this poor, brave man being so cruelly murdered (the actual beheading is not shown) will stay with me. It now lives somewhere in my subconscious. I don’t imagine viewing the shocking moment of his death will lead me to do anything I wouldn’t have done if I hadn’t seen it, but I feel polluted and violated. ncidentally, the BBC is at fault for repeatedly describing what happened as ‘an execution’,

After the latest grotesque atrocity by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the beheading of an American journalist, American and European policymakers must clearly understand the near certainty that unless it is defeated and destroyed, ISIS will launch a major terror attack on American or European soil. Analysts estimate that ISIS has amassed a cash hoard of between $400 million and $2 billion. It is highly probable that ISIS will attempt to use some of this money to obtain nuclear, chemical, biological or other weapons of mass death on the international black market or from corrupt officials in nations

Protesters are expected to gather Thursday evening at the White House as part of a national “Day of Rage” over the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teen earlier this month in Missouri. The planned rally is among dozens around the nation organized by the group Anonymous, which is demanding the “immediate arrest and prosecution” of officer Darren Wilson. Wilson has been identified as the officer who shot 18-year-old Michael Brown on Aug. 9, touching off violent protests in the streets of Ferguson, Mo. “We call upon the citizens of the United States to collectively gather in support for

Mike Carey sat quietly by himself in the CBS NFL game-day studio in Manhattan on Monday. As he had for 19 integrity-driven seasons as one of the league’s most highly respected officials, the network’s recently hired rules analyst blended seamlessly into the background, doing what every good official does: Be unobtrusive and let the stars shine. So while Phil Simms, Greg Gumbel, James Brown, Lesley Visser, Deion Sanders and more of CBS’s luminaries answered to a cadre of journalists whether they would use the name of Washington’s NFL team on broadcasts, Carey sat still. No one approached. His secret of

Race-based hate crimes jumped in Washington, D.C., last year even as most other types of bias crimes decreased, with analysts saying such incidents could be vastly underreported among minority groups uncomfortable coming forward to authorities. D.C. police say that of the 18 race-based hate crimes in 2013, the majority of victims were white and the majority of suspects black. The number of incidents was up from the 13 race-based bias crimes reported in 2012 The disclosure comes as a wave of protests and unrest after the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teen by a white police officer in Ferguson,

President Barack Obama sent U.S. troops to Syria earlier this summer to rescue a number of Americans held by a violent extremist group, including slain journalist James Foley, but did not find the hostages, senior Obama administration officials said Wednesday. The officials said the rescue mission was authorized after intelligence agencies believed they had identified the location inside Syria where the hostages were being held. But the several dozen special operations troops who were dropped by aircraft into Syria did not find them engaged in a firefight with Islamic State militants before departing. The officials said a number of militants but no

PJ Media has been covering the Criminal Section of the Civil Rights Division for years. This is the unit that will be investigating the shooting in Ferguson and deciding whether to charge the police officer with civil rights crimes. PJ Media had to sue Eric Holder to obtain the resumes of the lawyers he hired to populate this unit. No wonder. The “Every Single One” series at PJ Media revealed that all of Holder’s attorney hires were leftists, some even with a history of anti-police activities.

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown.

This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store. Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the District Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

President Obama returned to his vacation home at Martha’s Vineyard after briefly interrupting his vacation for two days of meetings in Washington, D.C. Obama met with his economic team Tuesday before leaving the White House at 4:22 pm to return to his vacation home. He did not react to the news that broke later that evening about an ISIS video that showed the beheading of American journalist James Wright Foley. The National Security Council reacted, however, in a statement provided by spokesperson Caitlin Hayden. “We have seen a video that purports to be the murder of U.S. citizen James Foley by ISIL,” Hayden said.

In July, after Germany trounced Brazil 7–1 in the semifinal match of the World Cup—including a first-half stretch in which the Brazilian soccer squad gave up an astonishing five goals in 19 minutes—a sports commentator wrote: “This was not a team losing. It was a dream dying.” These words could equally describe what has become of Barack Obama’s foreign policy since his second inauguration. The president, according to the infatuated view of his political aides and media flatterers, was supposed to be playing o jogo bonito, the beautiful game—ending wars, pressing resets, pursuing pivots, and restoring America’s good name abroad.

The Islamic State’s official media just released a graphic video showing the beheading of American journalist James Foley, who was taken in northwest Syria on Thanksgiving Day 2012. The ISIS terrorist in the video says that the beheading is revenge for President Obama’s recent airstrikes on ISIS targets in Iraq. The video, viewed in full by PJM, begins with a snippet of Obama speaking about the strikes, then shifts to images of the strikes with a title that reads, “American Aggression Against the Islamic State.” The title card then says a “A Message to America.” Foley, with a shaved head, was

It turns out that there are some good reasons why the former Governor and GOP Presidential nominee is allowing his name to be circulated as a potential candidate in 2016. Some of those good reasons can be found in a new poll by Zogby Analytics showing him outpolling his nearest rivals for the nomination by about two to one. The poll of 315 likely Republican primary voters was conducted online on August 13-15 and has a margin of sampling error of +/-5.6 percentage points.

From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air. Ferguson is where unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9. Witnesses have said he was not aggressive toward the officer and had his hands raised above his head before he was shot. As a result, the words “hands up, don’t shoot” have become a rallying cry of protesters, both in Ferguson and online.
