WH dismisses ´navigator´ concerns

The White House on Monday dismissed documents provided by the House Oversight Committee that suggested so-called "navigators" assisting consumers with signing up for the new healthcare law had put consumer information at risk. "This is just one more data point in the Republican obsession with sabotaging ObamaCare," said White House press secretary Jay Carney. The panel charges that some ObamaCare navigators “encouraged consumers to commit tax fraud by underreporting income in order to qualify for ObamaCare’s health insurance subsidies.” It also says that navigators broke rules by mailing paper applications on behalf of consumers, rather than telling consumers to do

Now I really have seen everything. On Monday, Bloomberg View columnist Caroline Baum actually said that to get young people to sign up for ObamaCare, in states where it´s legal, the Administration should give them marijuana:Instead of outreach programs and sappy TV ads with parents imploring their kids to sign up for Obamacare, President Barack Obama needs to start thinking creatively if he wants his signature legislative achievement to be a success. What motivates kids? In fact, what motivates any of us? Incentives. This White House has failed to grasp what makes individuals and businesses tick. Whether it´s taxes or

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and two Republican lawmakers exchanged a war of words ahead of a congressional hearing in Dallas Monday that will examine the Obamacare “navigators,” employees who are trained to help Americans understand and select their new insurance options under the law. After reports of foul play by navigators in the area – one trainee at the Urban League of Greater Dallas allegedly encouraged an applicant to lie about his income on the application – the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee scheduled a hearing in Richardson, Texas to investigate the program. “While President Barack

Many members of the Congressional Black Caucus were curious why Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) decided to join them on a 20-hour flight to South Africa, but Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) said today that she thinks the time together was productive. Cruz was the only senator, and one of two Republicans, to join the 22-member congressional delegation to Nelson Mandela´s memorial service last week. Moore noted today on MSNBC´s "Jansing & Co." that many of the other members, such as Reps. John Lewis (D-Ga.) and Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), had personal connections to the issues from working against apartheid. "He was on

Doctors have successfully reattached a man´s severed hand after it was attached to his ankle for a month. On November 10, Xiao Wei´s right hand was severed due to an accident at work. He said: ´I was just shocked and frozen at the spot, until co-workers unplugged the machine and retrieved my hand and took me to the hospital.´ At his local hospital in Changde, in China´s Hunan province, doctors said they were unable to save his hand. But they suggested that doctors at the larger regional hospital may be able to help.

With the average Brit set to consume 7,000 calories on Christmas day, it comes as no surprise that the traditional British Christmas dinner has been ranked the fattiest and unhealthiest in Europe. A new survey has revealed that our typical festive lunch on December 25 contains 69g fat and 211g of carbohydrates, that´s 42 per cent saturated fat and 30 per cent sugar. On the other end of the spectrum is France, which tops the healthy league table with its menu full of unprocessed foods.A typical French Christmas dinner may be packed with roast chicken, foie gras and thirteen desserts,

The biggest Pinocchios of 2013

It’s time for our annual round-up of the biggest Pinocchios of the year. This was not a presidential election year, so in some ways the subjects that needed to be fact checked were more substantive. In reviewing The Fact Checker’s more than 200 columns in the past year, we found an interesting evolution from statistics about gun violence to claims about President Obama’s health-care law. Our general rule of thumb held: the more complex a subject is, the more tempted politicians are to make misleading claims. President Obama ended up with three of the most misleading claims of the year. But,

Mika Recruits Rattner To

In her continuing campaign to promote Elizabeth Warren´s presidential prospects, Mika Brzezinski has attempted to recruit an unlikely ally: Steve Rattner. Rattner--President Obama´s former "car czar"--is an investment manager and what passes for a moderate in the modern Dem party. The notion that he would support leftist Elizabeth Warren in a Dem primary is far-fetched to say the least. But Mika told Rattner he would "root" for Warren "because you will do that for me." A compliant Ratter replied that he would "do anything" for Mika. View the video after the jump. The panel had been discussing a poll showing Hillary

Harvard University issued an evacuation and canceled final exams for several students after someone emailed a bogus bomb threat to officials on Monday. Authorities with several agencies - including the Boston and Cambridge police departments, the Massachusetts State Police and the FBI - descended on the campus when the threat was made, shortly after 9 a.m., officials said. The anonymous note said that explosives were placed in four buildings at the Ivy League school´s campus that included its science center and three halls - Thayer, Sever and Emerson - which were all immediately evacuated. The threat was later determined to

The president of the University of Chicago earned $3.4 million in 2011, making him the highest-paid private university president in the country that year, according to a survey released Sunday. The Chronicle of Higher Education´s annual study, which uses data from federal tax documents, found that Robert Zimmer was among 42 private college presidents earning more than $1 million in total compensation. Zimmer´s compensation in 2011 breaks down like this: $918,000 in base salary; $200,000 in bonus pay; $454,800 in deferred compensation to be paid at a later date; $147,452 in nontaxable benefits; and $1.6 million in other earnings, which

The Obama administration has spent millions of taxpayer dollars to create a navigator program to help people wade through the onerous requirements of signing up for Obamacare. Today at 1:30 PM CT, the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform will be holding a field hearing at the Charles Eisemann Center in Richardson, Texas to answer the question - who are these navigators and what is their role in Obamacare? In an oped for The Dallas Morning News, Rep Pete Sessions Congressional (R-TX) and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) indicated their reason for choosing Texas for their hearing:

The Obama administration decided that Obamacare Navigators, tasked with helping Americans enroll in a health insurance plan, would not undergo mandatory background checks. Now, in the ten weeks since the launch of Healthcare.gov, the ill-trained Navigators have put Americans´ sensitive health and tax information at risk. Breitbart News has obtained a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee report on the Obamacare Navigators that will be released Monday. It has found that Obamacare Navigators have been giving Americans misinformation and, in some cases, actively encouraging enrollees to commit fraud in order to raise their subsidies. To complicate matters further, there is

AS his popularity plummets to historic lows and his presidential legacy is in tatters, BARACK OBAMA has suffered a shocking secret meltdown. White House insiders say the deeply depressed Commander-in-Chief is hardly eating or sleeping, hasn’t talked to First Lady Michelle, 49, in weeks and is convinced everyone hates him! “Barack is shattered that his presidency and his life are in free-fall,” says a source. “He can’t believe the American public has turned on him so viciously, mainly because of the Obamacare disaster. No one has been able to help him. “Michelle has tried everything she can to comfort him, but he just snaps,

As thousands of state residents enroll in Washington’s expanded Medicaid program, many will be surprised at fine print: After you’re dead, your estate can be billed for ordinary health-care expenses. The way Prins saw it, that meant health insurance via Medicaid is hardly “free” for Washington residents 55 or older. It’s a loan . . .

Valerie Jarrett, Obama´s Rasputin, unwittingly provided us an answer to the question of why the Obama Presidency is such a man-caused disaster. There are few people who are close to the notoriously insular Barack Obama (a former aide, Neera Tanden, said that "Obama doesn´t call anyone, and he´s not close to almost anyone. It´s stunning that he´s in politics, because he really doesn´t like people") but Valerie Jarrett is among the select few. They have been friends for decades; she introduced Barack to Michelle; she is a constant presence in the White House, and highly unusual for a White House

The Republican establishment is fed up with the “outside groups” — the conservative lobbying shops and super PACs that have pulled the party Rightward in recent years — and this time, it’s the establishment that is uninterested in compromise. House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell are playing to win. But here´s the problem: Directly fighting the insurgent groups only makes them stronger. In a span of 48 hours, the party leadership took two direct shots at the conservative insurgents. Boehner attacked the outside groups on camera, singling out Heritage Action. Also, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., fired Republican Study

Former Arkansas Governor and Fox News Channel host Mike Huckabee weighed in on the escalating feud between establishment Republican politicians and conservative activist groups on Saturday. Asked for his thoughts on House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) admonition of the idealized purism advocated by some outside groups, Huckabee sympathized with Boehner saying that governing is more difficult than activism and “politics is not theology.” Huckabee began by saying that Boehner was not scolding the tea party movement but conservative groups that capitalize on that movement. He added that some of those groups appear to have an “all or nothing mindset” and that

Business trade associations applauded the rant by Speaker John Boehner against outside conserative groups like Heritage Action and FreedomWorks, saying it was long overdue. The Hill: Business groups, whose frustration with the Tea Party boiled over during the government shutdown, said Boehner´s broadside was long overdue. "I think we have all said it. The business community has been uniformly frustrated at how strident the ideological groups have been in defiance of reason," said David French, senior vice president of government relations of the National Retail Federation. Lobbyists said they are encouraged by the fact that the budget accord easily passed the lower chamber despite

Sure, he likely didn’t mean anything overtly sexual by it. But Vice President Joe Biden is a folksy kind of guy who has officially entered dirty old man territory and done something sure to elicit laughs within the White House Press Corps. Look how he’s manhandling The Hill‘s White House Correspondent Aime Parnes for this photograph taken at a recent holiday party that she posted on her Facebook page. For most people’s tastes he’s grazing way too close to the vicinity of her abdomen. And watch her reaction. Is it shock, awe, utter disbelief? Whatever the expression, she appeared to

MINNEAPOLIS--Black students at the University of Minnesota say racial descriptions in crime alerts does not help catch suspects. Instead, it´s hurting black male students. There have been more than two dozen crimes on or near the U this year. Crime alert after crime alert describes many of the suspects as young black males. "There are a plethora of young black men on campus who fit that description," Abdel-Kader Toovi, a college senior and vice president of the Black Men´s Forum on campus, said.

After more than 50 years leading the fight to legitimize attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, Keith Conners could be celebrating. Severely hyperactive and impulsive children, once shunned as bad seeds, are now recognized as having a real neurological problem. Doctors and parents have largely accepted drugs like Adderall and Concerta to temper the traits of classic A.D.H.D., helping youngsters succeed in school and beyond. But Dr. Conners did not feel triumphant this fall as he addressed a group of fellow A.D.H.D. specialists in Washington. He noted that recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that the diagnosis had been

WASHINGTON — CIA officers revealed a clash over how quickly they should go help the besieged U.S. ambassador during the 2012 attack on an outpost in Libya, and a standing order for them to avoid violent encounters, according to a congressman and others who heard their private congressional testimony or were briefed on it. The Obama administration has been dogged by complaints that the White House, Pentagon and State Department may not have done enough before and during the attack to save U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others, and by accusations that it later engaged in a cover-up. One allegation was
