  • Obamacare may need a taxpayer bailout: Ex-HHS head

    11/19/2013 7:53:41 AM PST · by Red in Blue PA · 53 replies
    The rollout of Obamacare has been "absolutely chaotic," said Tommy Thompson, who served as U.S. Health and Human Services secretary under George W. Bush. But worse, he added, the new law is flawed and needs dramatic changes. "It's actuarially unsound," the former Republican governor of Wisconsin said on CNBC's "Squawk Box" on Tuesday. "If you don't have the healthy young people involved, ... Obamacare cannot function. It's going to require a huge infusion of tax dollars or huge cuts." One of the cornerstones of the new health-care law is that healthy young people will pay for medical insurance that they...

    As of Tuesday, programs like elementary music, art and physical education are gone and libraries are closed. School days are shortened to just 5 1/2 hours -- leaving kids less time for instruction, and working parents scrambling. "What are kids gonna do with that big window of time when their parents are still working and all that idle time that they still have, to do God knows what?" parent Jeff Bodziony said. Hot school lunches are also thing of the past. In fact, lunch is a thing of the past. Students used to have lunch in the noon hour. Instead...

    What to Expect from a Government Shutdown So there is the possibility of a government shutting down coming up. The Democrats seem to want it because they think it will be politically advantageous, but those guys would support a Nazi invasion of the U.S. if they thought politically advantageous to them. Still, I think maybe the government shutdown would be a good thing. I mean, if we just shut the whole thing down, that’s basically the only way to ensure we don’t spend anymore money. And maybe we can just declare bankruptcy on the federal government and forget all...

    The developer of the Ground Zero mosque is being bounced from his SoHo office, the Daily News has learned. Sharif El-Gamal, who runs the real estate firm Soho Properties and is heading the project two blocks from Ground Zero, was slapped with eviction proceedings last month after tallying up $39,000 in back rent, a Manhattan Housing Court filing shows.

    In the new movie "2012," whose video trailers were bombarding television airwaves last week, the world as we know it gives way three years hence under a siege of floods, eruptions, undulating continents and earthquakes. In other words, it's not much different from what is happening in California, fiscally speaking, except that the state will be lucky to hang on that long. To recap: the state's chief budget analyst reported last week that California faces a $21-billion deficit through the next fiscal year. For the two budget years after that, deficits will total $44 billion more, the analyst said. Those...

    Can Tasini Pull a Lamont?Underdog Hillary challenger thinks so, even if nobody else does; in basement HQ, he wonders why voters don’t see the parallels with Lieberman. By Geoffrey Gray Jonathan Tasini is walking the wrong way down Fifth Avenue. It’s just past noon the day after antiwar insurgent Ned Lamont beat stubbornly pro-war Joe Lieberman in Connecticut, and it ought to be the biggest day of Tasini’s campaign yet, since he’s been sounding the same themes against Hillary Clinton. He’d put this trip to the New York Public Library on his schedule, but the media didn’t seem to care...

    Technology needed to guard against terrorist infiltration is not reaching the Arizona border, and a top regional official with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security says the reason is federal bureaucrats have misspent money reserved for that purpose. As much as $60 million that Congress approved for wireless communications technology used by federal security agencies has been spent on bureaucratic expenses that have nothing to do with the program, said Charles Cape, the zone manager for the agency's wireless initiative in the Southwest, which includes Arizona. That has left the nation's southern border vulnerable and hindered efforts to ensure all...

    FLOYD, Va. (AP) - They came to Floyd to get back to the land, to be alone, to find community, or to make music. They fit in here because they didn't quite fit in anywhere else. Here the counterculture met the mountain culture and something unique was born. The two lifestyles had something in common, lack of money. The locals wanted it but didn't have it. The newcomers with the tie-dyed shirts didn't care much about the dollar - some despised it - but, like everyone else, they had to pay the bills. So together they took something ancient and...
  • 300 expelled from California High School (Sunnyvale)

    SUNNYVALE (KRON) -- Some 300 students heading into one of the five high schools in the Fremont Union High School district were sent home early and for good Monday. "We asked them to come to the office, we called their parents and told them they don't go to school here anymore," said Superintendent Steve Rowley. The school district is enforcing a policy that limits enrollment to only those students who can prove that they live in the district. In the past, looser enforcement has allowed parents from as far away as Milpitas, Fremont, and South San Jose to do whatever...
