Well if one lie doesn’t suffice try another. Or in the case of the GOP another and another and another. Soon to join the fluoride argument I presume. Or alien probes. I can show them a few states where Obamacare was blocked by the GOP and people are sick and dying or going broke. Nah.The Idiocracy is here.
This fits right in with this page posted yesterday.
There just has to be some sort of conspiracy. Some hidden force pushing a hidden agenda.
That’s right, even though his own party has tried to throw a wrench into efforts to extend aid to 1.3 million jobseekers — the GOP’s position would even threaten job growth and cut GDP — Priebus yesterday told radio host Lars Larson that Democrats “don’t want this to pass.” He claimed that the Democrats’ attempt to pass emergency jobless aid was in fact a ploy to “avoid Obamacare.”
Great news, and should be a confidence builder for those who have some faith in The Supreme Court despite it’s conservative members. .
The challenge by Liberty University focused on congressional power under the commerce clause and broader claims that Obamacare violates religious rights. On Monday, the Supreme Court turned the appeal aside.

Lawyers for Liberty University in Lynchburg, Va., had urged the high court to consider whether Congress has the power to impose a mandate on employers to provide a government-set level of health insurance to employees or face significant financial penalties.
They also argued that the ACA and its implementing regulations violate the university’s religious rights by forcing Liberty University and its officials to make monthly payments that they said would fund abortions and to provide contraceptives that violate sincerely held religious beliefs.
I haven’t read Time in years. I had no idea it had wingnuts of this magnitude working for them these days.

First on CNN: Obama to push administrative fix for insurance cancellations
Updated 11:02 a.m. ET, 11/14/2013
(CNN) - President Barack Obama will lay out an administrative solution to address the problem of people getting cancellation notices from their health insurance providers due to the Affordable Care Act, a senior Democratic source familiar with the plan tells CNN’s Chief Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash.
Obama will deliver remarks at 11:35 a.m. ET in the White House Press Briefing Room, the White House announced Thursday morning.
The plan will in part call for insurance policies to be renewed for one year for those who already have insurance policies in the individual market, the source said.
If an insurance company does renew a substandard plan, it would be required to do two things. First, it would have to notify the policy holder of alternative coverage options. Second, the company would have to disclose all of the benefits a policy holder will lose if she keeps an existing substandard plan.
The source noted the President may disclose additional details.
Van Jones spells out how no matter how hard Democrats try to compromise, the Republicans want none of it.
