Abstinence Education Reallocation Act Seeks $550 Million To Keep Teens From Having Sex

The Abstinence Education Reallocation Act, brought forth by Reps. Randy Hultgren (R-Ill.) and Daniel Lipinski (D-Ill.) on Valentine's Day, seeks to award $550 million in Affordable Care Act grants over five years to programs that provide teenagers with abstinence-only education.

Twelve GOP co-sponsors have announced support for the measure. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is expected to introduce a companion bill in the Senate, following up on a similar unsuccessful effort last year.

I was partially wrong.

In states that don't have the exchange there will be no requirement to have insurance.

You people read this very carefully and see just what kind of scam is being run here!!!!

For example, a family of 4 headed by a 40 year old making $35,000 a year will get a $10,742 tax credit toward an annual premium of $12,130 policy. They'd have to pay $1388, about 4 percent of their income or about $115 a month.

A similar hypothetical family making $90,000 will get a much smaller tax credit,$3580, meaning they will have to pay $8550 of the same $12,130 policy. That works out to more than 9 percent of their income, or about $710 a month.

Redistribution of wealth!!! We are getting scammed big time!!

That was from HuffPost by the way!!!!!

An escort who appeared on a video claiming Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) paid her for sex has told Dominican Republic police that she was instead paid to make up the claims in a tape recording and has never met or seen the senator before, according to court documents and two people briefed on her claim.
The woman identified a lawyer who approached her and a friend to make the videotape, according to affidavits obtained by the Post. That man has in turn identified another lawyer who gave him a script for the tape and paid him to find women to fabricate the claims, the affidavits say.

Who Framed Senator Bob Menendez?

Authorities have been successful in contacting the lawyer who allegedly approached the women who reports that he had also been approached by another lawyer who paid him to execute the assignment.

While the woman in question was not the original ‘tipster’ who first claimed that the Senator had paid for sex with an under aged woman, the alleged purpose of the videotaped recording was to bolster the original allegation and add fuel to the accusations.

As of this time, FBI agents investigating the claims have found no evidence whatsoever that supports the original tipster allegation.

The videotape of the women now claiming to have falsified the accusations was first run by The Daily Caller web site which has reported that “the two women said they met Menendez around Easter at Casa de Campo, an expensive 7,000-acre resort in the Dominican Republic…They claimed Menendez agreed to pay them $500 for sex acts, but in the end they each received only $100.”

Menendez has been steadfast in his denial that the alleged incidents ever took place, saying—

“It’s amazing to me that anonymous, nameless, faceless individuals on a Web site can drive that type of story into the mainstream, but that’s what they’ve done successfully. Now, nobody can find them. No one ever met them. No one ever talked to them, but that’s where we’re at. So the bottom line is all of those smears are absolutely false and, you know, that’s the bottom line.”

Now, two of his accusers have been found and we learn that the entire story was a big lie intended to discredit the Senator.

If a straight white male murdered a gay white male; would it be a hate crime?
Why are you so ignorant?
You don't realize that gays are the victims of gay bashing from straights from every race? Or do you think gays deserve to be murdered because they are gay?

The 'tax credit' although called that is simply government assistance and goes to the insurer. You will not get a check.

Help will be given in covering the copay to those who need assistance.

The American people are getting hosed!!!

Hate crimes have no color or race, and that gate swings both ways.

People are murdered for every irrational reason under the sun.

Aren't all of them hate crimes?

best headline of the large bunch.....

Daily Call Girl Smacks Down Daily Caller

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2013/03/...

Assuming that Carlson doesn't break character to issue an apology or correction, we're now faced with a he-said, she-said between a Daily Caller report and the sworn testimony of a foreign escort. From where we're sitting, the more reliable source seems obvious.

Murder is murder no matter what the reason. Are you saying killing a gay or black person should be more horrendous just because they were gay or black? A killer of a gay or black should be punished more than a killer of a white or straight person? I believe that to be discrimination!

All crimes are hate crimes.

Uh I guess you haven't been paying attention. The states are planning on dumping the poor on the private insurers and off Medicaid as soon as the federal money runs out. In three years. Florida included.

Eman claimed that the middle class are not denied medical care; that was the subject. Talking about the past and right now, The ACA is not in effect yet; and, don't know if you heard that the Republican legislature is blocking Rick Scotts acceptance of ACA funds.
As it would stand, if Rick Scott can accept the federal funding for the medicaide expansion; the qualifications are 133% of the poverty level.
All of this is unnecessary if we would have single payer healthcare paid through taxation. It relieves the employers responsibility and being covered is not attached to employment.
Hopefully we will get to that.
