    However, in August, 2011 the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced new guidelines to ensure women receive preventive health services at no additional cost to them. The guidelines require insurance plans to cover certain women’s preventive services at 100%. These new required Health Care Reform mandates added a significant increase to our health care plan. With this in mind, we would like to announce the following for 2013.

    President Barack Obama and former Governor Mitt Romney continue to run a close race for Ohio's prized 18 electoral votes. In the race for U.S. Senate, likely voters currently give incumbent Senator Sherrod Brown a 49 to 44 edge over Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel. These findings are based on the latest Ohio Poll, conducted by the Institute for Policy Research at the University of Cincinnati. The Ohio Poll is sponsored by the University of Cincinnati. The Poll was conducted with Ohio likely voters from October 25 to October 30, 2012.

    Breitbart ^ | 10/26/12
    In Iowa, a rural state of outsized political importance, retired nurse Pauline McAreavy is among thousands eager to vote against President Barack Obama after four years of disappointment. McAreavy holds a personal grudge against the president that dates back to 2008, when she hosted Obama's supporters for three weeks in the Midwestern state that nurtured his improbable White House dreams. She never got a thank you note for her small role in helping land Obama in the White House, but McAreavy's antagonism goes deeper, the product of broken promises and accumulated disillusion with the "hope" promised by the man who...

    WE DIDN’T endorse Barack Obama’s presidential candidacy four years ago, but after he was elected we congratulated him on his victory and expressed our desire that his presidency would be successful. But soon after his inauguration, it became clear that his talk of “post-partisanship” and governmental transparency was just that: talk. He, along with then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, rammed through Obamacare with almost no input from congressional Republicans. Recall Ms. Pelosi’s comment that “We have to pass this so you can see what’s in it.”

    If businessman Coors has a good night on Nov. 6, so will Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, likely not only in Colorado but nationwide. Colorado is looking like a state that is the national average, perhaps a tick or two rightward, according to Sean Trende, a savvy number-cruncher and Yale-trained political scientist for the website RealClearPolitics. “So if Romney is winning Colorado, it probably means he is headed for a decent night,” Trende said of the relatively new electoral trend of a Western state signaling a presidential win. If Romney wins here comfortably, that probably means a national win on...

    Key Findings: 1. The Romney-Ryan team is right in the thick of things in Minnesota. Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan trail Barack Obama and Joe Biden by just four points – 43% Romney/Ryan to 47% Obama/Biden in the Presidential race in Minnesota. While Minnesota is a Democratic state, the Romney/Ryan ticket’s 45%-32% lead over Obama/Biden among Independents makes the state competitive. Romney/Ryan lead 45%-42% among men, but trail 42%-52% among women. 2. While Obama’s image is decent overall, he has real problems with Independents. Romney’s image is 45% favorable/44% unfavorable, which is a little weaker than Obama’s 50% favorable/44% unfavorable...

Bottom line: Romney is suddenly surging, with Obama leading by a mere two points -- which is to say a "virtual dead heat." Concludes the poll: There is (my emphasis) "clear evidence the debates have helped solidify the Keystone State as a tossup election in November and one well within Romney's reach."

    It will get very tiresome. It will get so tiresome that whites who would never have a racist thought in their minds will begin to have unkind thoughts of Barack's racemongering supporters. And this will be reflected upon every black person in the country. Blacks will have their hate-whitey feelings further entrenched (just as they did during the O.J. trial) and whites will find frustration with the foolish, blind support of a president that is obviously a failure. And for those who truly are racists, the debacle of an Obama presidency will give them the excuse to say that they...

Seven percent were undecided. The race is close – with survey results within the statistical margin of error – despite a decided popularity advantage for Obama. He boasted a +8 (52 percent favorable to 44 percent unfavorable) to Romney’s -3 (42 percent favorable to 45 percent unfavorable). “Barack Obama shows personal popularity and strength, especially outside of the D.C. area in northern Virginia,” said David...

    The Obama campaign has insisted on seeing the speech before Clinton delivers it, and Clinton has just as insistently refused to show it to them. As a result, no one — not even the president — knows what Clinton intends to say. This has led some Democratic insiders to speculate that Clinton will make not-so-flattering remarks about the last four years of Democratic rule in the White House.

More importantly, by a 4 point margin, more voters identify as GOP than Democrat. This is the largest spread between the parties ever. Worse for Democrats, the number of voters who identify with their party is also approaching an historic low. In August, 37.6% of voters identified themselves as Republican. That is up from 34.9% in July. By contrast, just 33.3% of voters identify themselves as Democrats. That is very near their historic low in February, when 32.4% of...

    Gov. Dave Heineman today said he's turning down a chance to run for the U.S. Senate in 2012. That race would have pitted him against incumbent Sen. Ben Nelson, D-Neb., setting up a clash of two Nebraska political giants. Heineman said he already had the "best job in America" and didn't want to live in Washington. Republicans, he told a press conference this afternoon, have plenty of strong candidates to challenge Nelson, whom he said had "embarrassed" the state by providing the deciding vote for the federal health-care reforms.

    Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania said Sunday that the House reconciliation bill designed to fix shortcomings in the Senate’s healthcare reform legislation cannot legally be considered by the Senate, because it would impact Social Security revenues and therefore is not eligible for the reconciliation procedure. Santorum also says Democratic leaders were well aware of this fact, but effectively “sandbagged” their members in the House in order to push healthcare reform through Congress. Reconciliation is designed to pass healthcare reform without bringing it back before the Senate for approval. Sen. Scott Brown’s election in Massachusetts means Democrats no longer...

Also called the “Missouri Health Care Freedom Act,” HJR48 intends to make it part of state policy that every individual in Missouri has the right to choose or decline any form of health care services without penalty or the threat of penalty from the U.S. federal government. This would prevent Missouri citizens from being subject to fines or other penalties if they choose not...

    A man who had claimed to have a copy of President Obama's Kenyan birth certificate, attempted to sell it on eBay and then disappeared from contact has reappeared, this time with a video of the document he claims proves Obama's foreign birth.

    The announcement today that the unemployment rate declined slightly to 9.4 percent in July while only 247,000 additional jobs were lost has been greeted as good news.
