Insurer with NY´s ´worst´ record of
complaints gets $340M Obamacare loan

Washington Examiner, by Richard Pollock

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/22/2013 8:20:53 PM

A health insurance company headed by an old friend from when President Obama was an Illinois state senator got a $340 million federal loan to establish Obamacare co-ops in New York, New Jersey and Oregon despite having a chronic record of consumer and regulatory complaints. The New York-based Freelancers Insurance Company has been rated the "worst" insurer for two straight years by state regulators, and data compiled by a national insurance association show an extremely high rate of consumer complaints. The firm was founded in 2008 by Sara Horowitz, who worked with Obama while he was in the

Comments:
Once again we see more corruption from this vile regime. It´s no surprise the name of George Soros pops up. It just gets worse and worse every day. This is going to be a state by state living nightmare. The leftists freaked out over Enron. What this is creating will be child´s play compared to that. If this was a civil company they would all be in jail.

Lee and Rubio Working on New
´Pro-Growth, Pro-Family´ Tax Reform Plan
Weekly Standard, by John McCormack    Original Article

The Tax Policy Center, a project of the liberal-leaning Urban Institute and Brookings Institution, released a new analysis this week of Senator Mike Lee´s family-friendly tax reform plan. According to TPC, the Utah Republican´s plan would reduce federal revenues by $2.4 trillion over 10 years, a much larger reduction than suggested by initial estimates. In a statement to THE WEEKLY STANDARD today, Lee responded to TPC´s analysis and announced that he´s already working with Florida senator Marco Rubio on a "new, comprehensive, pro-family, pro-growth tax reform proposal that we hope to introduce later this year." Lee´s full statement: I thank

IRS agrees to hand

The IRS has agreed to turn over emails and other documents from Lois Lerner, a key player in the agency’s targeting controversy, the House Ways and Means Committee said Friday. Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-Mich.) threatened last month to subpoena those documents after criticizing the IRS for failing to comply with his request. “This is a significant step forward and will help us complete our investigation into the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups,” Camp said in a statement. The announcement comes just days after Lerner, the IRS official who first acknowledged the IRS’s improper scrutiny of Tea Party

Obama To Latino Families: ´You

WASHINGTON – Issuing a last call for health care, President Barack Obama assured Latinos on Thursday that signing up for new insurance exchanges won´t lead to deportation for any relatives in the U.S. illegally. Facing fresh skepticism from one of his traditionally most loyal constituencies, Obama pushed back on the notion of some critics that he´s become America´s "deporter in chief," insisting that Latinos know that "I´ve got their back." In a virtual town hall meeting with Spanish-language media outlets, Obama disputed that his credibility had been undermined by the chaotic health care rollout and his failure to secure legal

President Barack Obama should stop deporting people who would be eligible to remain in the country under the Senate’s immigration bill if the House doesn’t act by September, Sen. Chuck Schumer said Thursday. “We remain focused on passing a balanced immigration bill that secures our borders and fixes a broken system,” the New York Democrat said in a statement to POLITICO. “But if the House recesses in September without passing immigration reform, in October the administration should stop deporting hard-working and law-abiding people who would be covered by the Senate bill.”

Cop-Killer’s Lawyer Because He Was Black

The race card never wears out. According to Democratic Senator Tom Harkin, the problem with Obama DOJ nominee Debo Adegbile was not that he was a cop killer’s lawyer, but that so many senators were huge racists. Harkin said the vote against Debo Adegbile shows the Senate measures nominees according to race, and suggested the lawyer would have been confirmed as head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division if he was white instead of biracial. Also if he wasn’t a cop-killer’s lawyer. “We sent a message: We have a double standard. A terrible double standard,” Harkin said.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) rallied the early-morning crowd to its feet to kick off the second day of the Conservative Political Action Conference, giving one of the more rousing speeches so far delivered at the three-day event. "It is time for Washington to focus on the few things the Constitution establishes as the federal government´s role. Defend our country, provide a cogent foreign policy, and what the heck, deliver the mail, preferably on time and on Saturdays," Perry said, bouncing on his heels and waving his fist, whipping the conservative crowd into a frenzy.

“I was horrified,” said John Stemberger, chairman of the board of Trail Life USA, a new, rapidly-growing scouting organization that doesn’t allow openly gay members. Stemberger was referring to an Associated Press photograph that accompanied an in-depth story about Trail Life. The image showed a group of young boys gathered in a circle with their hands raised at an unusual angle. The AP’s original caption on the photo said they were reciting the organization’s “creed” during a meeting in North Richland Hills, Texas. It took the AP several days to acknowledge their error. But by then, the unfortunate comparison to Nazi Germany

LT. COL. RALPH PETERS: Putin establishes facts on the ground. Look, the vote in the Crimean parliament today, begging to be allowed to join Russia -- it´s a done deal. The plebiscite coming up in less than two weeks is a done deal. Crimea now belongs to Russia. As I´ve said on FOX before, the only remaining question is how much more of Ukraine Putin will take and when he will take it. But the weakness, the lack of unity between the EU and the United States -- the greed, the financial cowardice -- is absolutely stunning, and Putin isn´t going

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa joined Megyn Kelly Thursday night to react to the uproar over him cutting off Elijah Cummings‘ mic during a contentious IRS hearing, saying that accusations he was “racist” are just “beneath response.” Issa suggested Cummings’ outburst was a “pre-staged event,” but Kelly asked, “Who cares? Let him have his couple of minutes to rip on you! You’re a big guy, you can take it!” He acknowledged that in hindsight, he might have let Cummings rant, but it’s completely unjustified for any member of Congress to try and get his chairmanship revoked over the incident

Conservative talk-radio host Mark Levin said he believes Lois Lerner, the former director of IRS exempt organizations, is “part of a coverup” concerning the IRS-Tea Party scandal. Levin made his remarks at a Citizens United-sponsored event on Thursday in National Harbor, Md. At the event, CNSNews.com asked Levin, “What do you think of Lois Lerner using the Fifth Amendment right in regards to the conservative, tea party groups, targeting?” Levin said, “What I think of her using the Fifth Amendment? Obviously, she has the right to use it. But I don’t know why she’s using it. I think she’s part of

Ad Age has a short article out right now about the colossal face-plant that is Al Jazeera America, formerly CurrentTV, which Al Jazeera bought from Al Gore for something like $100 million. Get a load of these numbers for viewership: The channel isn’t even pulling in half the total audience that predecessor Current TV managed. Al Jazeera America has averaged just 15,000 total viewers in prime-time since bowing in August, with only 5,000 viewers in the target 25-to-54-year-old demographic, according to Nielsen figures. That’s low enough to be considered “scratch,” or negligible, by Nielsen. For the marketers that still worry about

More than one million U.S. schoolchildren stopped buying school lunches during the 2012-2013 academic year, after new nutrition standards championed by first lady Michelle Obama took effect. The Government Accountability Office, a watchdog agency inside the federal government, told members of Congress in a little-noticed January 28 report that participation in the school lunch program declined by 1,086,000 in that one year, the biggest drop on record.

The chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus is calling for House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) to be stripped of his gavel for his behavior at a contentious IRS hearing on Wednesday. Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio) told Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Thursday that Issa’s conduct in the hearing — which included cutting off the microphone of Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), the ranking Democrat — amounted to “an affront to the expectations of the American people.” Fudge also said Issa should apologize on the House floor. “The American people have the right to expect that their elected leaders be held to the

A plea for about a dozen people who know who they are: Will you see “12 Years a Slave” now? It just won the Oscar for Best Picture. It just came out on DVD. Please see it. I’ll even spring for the popcorn. You see, I keep encountering folks, mostly African-American, who have decided that they won’t -- or can’t -- see this movie. Some say they don’t want to be made angry. Others say they don’t want to be traumatized.

So, Lois Lerner still won´t talk about her role in the illegal targeting and harassment by the IRS of conservative and Tea Party groups seeking 501(c)(4) tax exemptions. Lerner appeared for a second time Wednesday before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform and claimed her Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate herself. It isn´t hard to figure out why Lerner´s lips are sealed. First, she knows the House of Representatives can cite her for contempt of Congress, but Attorney General Eric Holder would decide whether she is prosecuted on that charge. Lerner need not worry since President Obama has

Where Lois Lerner goes, drama follows. On Wednesday, the former IRS officer again invoked the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. That precipitated a heated exchange between the committee’s Republican chairman, Darrell Issa, and Democratic ranking member Elijah Cummings, who called the hearings “un-American.” And that spat has become the story. No doubt that is exactly what Cummings had in mind. Because it distracts attention from the substance of the hearings — and from the questions raised by e-mails and public remarks Lois Lerner wrote, received or made when she was IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations.

WASHINGTON — Charles G. and David H. Koch, the billionaire brothers who are perhaps the best-known patrons of conservative Republican politics, are bespectacled and in their 70s. They look genial enough. But Democrats are embarking on a broad effort that aims to unmask the press-shy siblings and portray them, instead, as a pair of villains bent on wrecking progressive politics. On Thursday, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is starting a digital campaign that will use Internet ads and videos, as well as social media, to tie Republican Senate candidates to the policies and actions of the Koch brothers. Its slogan:

The New Jersey governor, who has been dogged by a scandal stemming from revelations that members of his administration conspired to shut down traffic lanes leading on to the George Washington Bridge, came to CPAC on Thursday in need of a reception like that, and the party faithful delivered. Christie’s remarks were highly anticipated, not only because of the lingering scandal but also because CPAC brass dinged him last year by leaving him off of the guest list.

President Obama strongly denounced the Senate on Wednesday for failing to confirm a top nominee to the Justice Department. In a statement released by the White House, Obama said Debo Adegbile´s defeat is a "travesty" and is based on unfair attacks. "The Senate’s failure to confirm Debo Adegbile to lead the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice is a travesty based on wildly unfair character attacks against a good and qualified public servant," Obama said. "Mr. Adegbile’s qualifications are impeccable." Obama said the main attack used against Adegbile -- Republicans denounced his work on behalf of convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal
