As it tries to hunt down tax scofflaws, the Internal Revenue Service has collected information on the political party affiliations of taxpayers in 20 states.
One senator called it an "outrageous violation of the public trust."

With 15 U.S. states opting out of President Barack Obama’s Medicaid expansion, hospitals that treat poor and uninsured patients are asking the government to delay $64 billion in planned funding cuts.

Medicaid funds to hospitals with a disproportionate share of low-income patients will be cut 50 percent, or $14.1 billion, from fiscal 2014 through 2019, according to draft regulations to be published in the Federal Register tomorrow. The American Hospital Association wants to delay by two years the start of the cuts for Medicaid and for $49.9 billion in reductions by Medicare, the health program for the elderly and disabled.
he reductions are mandated by President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act, and were supposed to be offset by an increase in the number of patients who would gain insurance through an expansion of state Medicaid programs. With some Republican-led states deciding not to cooperate, a loss of funding without a gain in more insured patients would hamper hospitals ability to keep caring for underserved populations.

“It’s a kick in the gut,” said John Bluford, chief executive officer of Truman Medical Centers in Kansas City, Missouri, which estimates it may lose as much as $150 million in Medicaid payments over seven years.“These are real dollars. It would wipe out our margins.”
Tenet Profit

The rules being circulated this week show Medicaid would reduce the so-called DSH payments by $500 million in the fiscal 2014 year starting in October. For 2015,$600 million more would be cut with the annual reductions reaching $5.6 billion in 2019.

Tight Bind

With only about one-fifth of their patients having commercial insurance, these safety-net hospitals typically have profit margins of about 2.3 percent, a third of the industrywide average for all hospitals, according to 2010 data from the National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems. Losing Medicaid funding and not gaining more insured patients would swing that margin from a profit to a loss of 6.1 percent.

Hospitals may try to recoup losses by limiting the amount of care they provide to the uninsured or reducing staff, John Graves, an assistant professor at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee, said by telephone.

“They’re in a tight bind,” Graves said.“They have to recoup those losses through fewer services, shutting down.”

Islam is a prehistoric darkness that moves, slithers beneath the human brain's Limbic system.

Muslims are 2000 years backward socially.

This is a tremendous drag on humanity's trying to move forward.

It is analogous to the Liberal Luddites attempting to gain total power over humankind.

Could it be that those Federal Fusion Centers are just a cover for something nefarious and not at all meant to hunt for the Magic Negro's brothers-in-arms?

Drones, combined with information on you and your whereabouts and activities, are then most effective.
