  • ObamaCare’s New Year’s Day Surprise: Deep Cuts to Medicare

    AMAC ^ | 12/18/2013 | Andrew Mangione
    As if ObamaCare’s botched website, coverage cancellations, and higher costs were not bad enough, the Obama Administration has quietly dealt yet another blow – this time striking millions of the nation’s most vulnerable seniors. Specifically, the Obama Administration has decided to deeply cut funding for the Medicare program’s home health benefit as a way to help pay for ObamaCare. The Administration made this announcement very quietly, waiting to do so until the very end of the last Friday before Thanksgiving, perhaps thinking that most people would not be looking. To be sure, the timing of the Administration’s quiet announcement did...

    At a time when Wall Street is absolutely swimming in wealth, New York City is experiencing an epidemic of homelessness. According to the New York Times, the last time there was this many homeless children in New York City was during the days of the Great Depression. And the number of homeless children in the United States overall recently set a new all-time record. As I mentioned yesterday, there are now 1.2 million public school kids in America that are homeless, and that number has gone up by about 72 percent since the start of the last recession. As Americans,...
  • Obamacare System Issues Mean “Enrollees” May Not Actually be Covered

    DC Clothesline ^ | 12/6/2013 | Lily Dane
    Can you imagine going through all the trouble to get enrolled in Obamacare, only to find out you aren’t actually covered when you try to use your shiny new insurance? Consumers who made it through the crashes and glitches of the perpetually broken Obamacare enrollment site and were able to sign up for insurance may be in for a rude awakening next month due to a significant problem with the “back end” of the site. The information that insurance companies are receiving through the website is often jumbled or incomplete – and in some cases, it isn’t going through...

    DC Clothesline ^ | 11/25/2013 | Diane Sori
    Words said by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and how right he is. “We have reached agreement,” EU spokesman Michael Mann said in a Twitter post early Saturday night before Barack HUSSEIN Obama got on national television, and in a throwback to the (supposed) bin-Laden take down tried to make what he believes is a good deal all about him. But it’s NOT a good deal for the US or Israel but it is all about him. This deal is strictly about Obama’s legacy and a so-wanted diversion from the ObamaCare fiasco, the Senate Constitution-trampling ‘nuclear option’ fiasco, and...
  • Scarborough Goes After Issa For Calling Jay Carney A ‘Paid Liar’: ‘You Can’t Say Things Like This’

    Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) went after the Obama administration hard on Sunday, charging that the IRS targeting was “directly ordered from Washington” and deeming White House Press Secretary Jay Carney a “paid liar.” Responding to the criticism on Monday, Joe Scarborough didn’t approve of Issa’s approach. It’s simply making him look bad, he argued. “Darrell Issa hurts himself and his cause more than Jay Carney or the White House when he calls him a paid liar,” Scarborough asserted. There’s a lot working against Carney right now, so he and Mika Brzezinski agreed that Issa should just let the issue breathe....
  • Sen. Rubio defends emerging immigration deal as ‘not amnesty’

    Sen. Rubio defends emerging immigration deal as ‘not amnesty’ By Cameron Joseph - 04/14/13 09:38 AM ET Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) blitzed all five Sunday shows in his most public pitch yet for the emerging immigration reform bill, arguing that it would control the border, and rejecting conservative criticisms that it provided “amnesty” for illegal immigrants in the country. "This is not amnesty. Amnesty is the forgiveness of something. Amnesty is anything that says 'do it illegally, it'll be cheaper and easier,'" Rubio, a member of the bipartisan ‘Gang of Eight’ senators set to unveil their immigration bill on Tuesday,...

    An interesting ‘coincidence’... Here’s Rachel Maddow on Tuesday night with Jay Leno: JAY LENO: How about what's going on in Wisconsin?... RACHEL MADDOW: If you look at the last election cycle, of the top ten people donating money in that election, seven of them were giving to Republicans, those were all corporate interests and Right-wing PACs and stuff. Seven of the ten were all Right-wing, and the only three that weren't were unions. So, if Republicans can get rid of the unions, particularly these public sector unions, they can run the table in every election from here on out. Now...

    Utah's favorite political son made no apologies Saturday for his conservative cred -- a stance thousands of backers in the Beehive State hope will propel Mitt Romney to the White House. Speaking at the Salt Palace Convention Center hall, Romney weaved wit, humor and folksy anecdotes around enough anti-Barack Obama broadsides to energize his fawning fans. Most in attendance braved a sloppy snowstorm to hoist campaign-style signs, giving Romney's No Apology: The Case for American Greatness book tour the feel of a 2012 campaign rally. "I hope he does run," Midway's Bart Kotter said afterward. "The guy is an amazing...

    Former – and perhaps future – Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney wants to make one thing clear, he’s not sniping at Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, another likely presidential candidate. Earlier this month when Romney and Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., were interviewed on CNN, they were asked about radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh and Palin’s inclusion in Time magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people. Romney quipped, “Was that the issue on the most beautiful people or the most influential people? I'm not sure. If it's the most beautiful, I understand. We're not real cute.” Some pundits took that...

    U.S. can undercut the tyrant of Tehran by fueling a popular revolt inside Iran This week, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad again darkens the doorstep of America to address the United Nations. There he is likely to express outrage that New York refused his request to visit Ground Zero. Like that visit would have been, his speech will be designed to divert attention from what may be the most urgent question facing the international community - whether the apocalyptic leaders of the Islamic republic can be stopped from acquiring the nuclear weapons necessary to implement their pledge to wipe Israel off...

    JOHN EDWARDS CAUGHT IN A LIE This is rich. Former North Carolina Senator John Edwards (who? Oh yeah..him,) the former Democratic vice-presidential nominee who ran with The Poodle two years ago, has been caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Believe it or not, it all revolves around Wal-Mart...and a game console. You see....Edwards is always bashing Wal-Mart. Not because of their promotion of eminent domain abuse, but because of their policy of promoting low prices and non-union labor. Edwards just isn't going to ever shop there. Or his he? It turns out the answer to that question is...it...

    ...WALLACE: Congressman, there is something in political science known as the 15 percent lie, and that is the fact, the established fact, that blacks, especially blacks running in Southern states, tend to do better, about 10 or 15 points better, in public opinion polls than they do when people go behind the voting curtain and actually vote on Election Day. Now, it happened to Harvey Gantt, when he was running for the Senate in North Carolina. It happened to Doug Wilder when he was running for governor in Virginia. Why won't it happen to Harold Ford in Tennessee? FORD: Well,...

    Dear Friend, I remember when I was back home from Vietnam and veterans were speaking out against the Vietnam war policy, someone yelled at the vets: "You should support the troops." One of those veterans said simply: "Lady, we are the troops." With a war in Iraq gone horribly wrong and a Republican attack machine determined to smear those who speak out, there's nothing more important this fall than electing veterans to Congress who can speak out about Iraq with a special moral authority. And man, do we need them. Recently, John "Randy" Kuhl, a Republican incumbent House member from...

    The “Real” Reason Kerry lost—Remembering and Honoring Vietnam’s Heroes. With newspaper reports (http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1639667/posts) of John (The Snake) Kerry out to prove his claims about his exploits in Vietnam and thereby, intending to discredit the Swift Boat Vets (and by association, all of the rest of us Vietnam Vets who opposed him, more so, for his actions after he returned from Nam) I thought it appropriate to post this, on this Solemn Day of Commemoration. I composed this poem and posted it on the eve before the last election (November 1st) and I believe it speaks for itself. God Bless (and...

    A YEAR AND A HALF AFTER HE LOST the 2004 presidential election, John Kerry can't get enough of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth. No matter the occasion, he doesn't miss an opportunity to parade his campaign wounds, however incoherently and obsessively. Supporting an Iraqi war vet running as a Democrat for Henry Hyde's congressional seat? "I know something firsthand about the Swift Boat-style Republican attack ads of the last election -- but you don't have to take my word for it," Senator Kerry wrote in a March fundraising e-mail, on behalf of Tammy Duckworth, an amputee whom no one...

    Most of the controversies from the wild 2004 presidential campaign have long been forgotten. But one is coming back, the New York Times reported this week, and we're glad it is: Sen. John Kerry, the 2004 Democratic nominee for president, is joining an effort to debunk the many attacks on his service in Vietnam more than two decades earlier. Kerry is a holder of three purple hearts, a bronze star and a silver star, all awarded in a four-month stint aboard Navy swift boats in Vietnam's Mekong delta.

    As we watch the left of the Democratic Party press its case to return to the top of the heap in American politics, or at least evade the fate of the Dodo, we have ever more evidence validating an insight on which I stake my reputation as a political seer. To wit: partisan politics more often falls under the professional expertise of the psychiatrist than that of the political scientist. A learned shrink can often tell us more about a political issue than any other professional, not excluding a swami or a voodoo priest. Consider the ongoing controversy over Sen....

    June 05, 2006 The Truth, John Kerry, and The New York Times By Thomas Lipscomb Kate Zernike's story on the front page of the Memorial Day Sunday New York Times, "Kerry Pressing Swift Boat Case Long After Loss," is an unfortunate reminder of the Times's embarrassingly poor coverage of Kerry in the face of the Swift Boat Veterans' for Truth charges in the 2004 election. Now as then, the Times acts as if the issues involved were between Kerry's latest representations of his record and the "unsubstantiated" charges of the Swift Boat group. The Times used the term "unsubstantiated" more...
