Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said Medicare beneficiaries could lose their fully-paid annual wellness doctor's visit if funding is cut off, prescription drug costs could rise, and millions of seniors who are enrolled in private Medicare coverage might be required to switch to the traditional fee-for-service coverage to continue receiving health care.

Sebelius also said federal funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program would end on Oct. 1, some Medicaid recipients would lose coverage and Indian health programs would also be affected.

But at what price? And at whose expense?
Unless and until we address lowering the cost of health care, we're going in circles.
Bringing down the middle class by placing an even greater tax burden on them while providing less than adequate health care for all people is not the solution.
Even if the 30 million still uninsured fall into the categories you listed, who pays for them when they go to the ER or have a catastrophic illness?

Obamacare and irrational politics

But actually, it is rational, in a sense — because it plays to the base. Same with talking about Benghazi. There’s game theory behind these maneuvers. Quixotic behavior has its rewards. There is no longer a “national conversation,” as some people call it. There are partisan conversations, and fringe conversations, and deep-down-the-rabbit-hole conversations. If you are a GOP congressman and know you have to run for re-election, you don’t want to be challenged on your right flank, so you advocate legislation that rationally advances your re-election prospects even if it has zero chance of becoming law.

By not addressing the politically correct poison of red flagging mental illness and those who fit certain profiles of becoming violent and by not focusing on curbing the harmful effects of gratuitous violence in video games and movies, it's much easier for liberals to pursue their own agenda even if they will never stop gangs and criminals from getting their hands on the same guns they want to outlaw.

The U.S. government will soon award nearly half a billion dollars in aid to Palestinians oughtn’t to have been news.

As Americans recently learned only too well themselves, mortgages, when divorced from a robust economy in which people are able to make enough money to pay them back, have a tendency to make the ground tremble. Seemingly oblivious to the searing lessons of America’s costly flirtation with unaffordable mortgages, Palestinians have been gobbling up the stuff: Personal debt has more than doubled between 2008 and 2011 and spiked another 40 percent in 2012, with most of the increase due to home loans.

There’s no reason for them not to gobble up all that money because we’re talking about the world’s most ridiculously violent welfare state with all the sense of personal responsibility of a crack addict.

The story is a familiar one.

In recent years, the increased availability of mortgages and consumer loans instead of cash for the middle class has caused personal debt to balloon in the Palestinian territories. It more than doubled, to about $750 million, from 2008 to the end of 2011 and rose 40% over the last year alone, according to figures from the Palestinian Authority.

Nidal Barghouti, general manager of Palestine Islamic Bank, where mortgage lending has risen to $40 million from nothing five years ago, said he worries because some banks are being aggressive about attracting customers to their retail business and many people are not used to debt.

“Borrowers don’t care as much when it’s easy money,” he said.

Foreclosures and evictions are virtually nonexistent in the West Bank because cultural pressure makes it difficult for lenders to repossess property in the close-knit Palestinian society. Large extended families support one another in times of financial need and lenders would be criticized for tossing borrowers out on the street, particularly if the default was caused by unpaid salaries during a Palestinian Authority crisis.

Last year, the authority, with U.S. help, launched a $500-million mortgage-guarantee program in the West Bank that is expected to double the number of families who can qualify for home loans.http://frontpagemag.com/ 2013/dgreenfield/obamas-palest inian-mortgages-feed-a-massive -housing-bubble/

Anyone can get a gun on the street faster than going to the store and buying one; those nuts aren't applying for a permit. They're stealing the guns from people who hoard them in their homes. Perhaps we ought to hold the actual gun owners and their manufacturers financially responsible for the carnage.
You are saying that the government should ban guns; video games and movies; what's next? history books? It's already happening in Texas. Schools? Oh, that's on the top of the list. Abortion? Oh, forgot, that's the number one. Ban gay people? You're nuts.

and they should ban Americans from using Irons in other countries:The O'bama fry end terrorists were asking each child if they could recite a Moslem prayer, and for those who couldn't, smashing in their heads with a clothes iron that they had grabbed off a department store shelf. What about the children children children now libs? seems O'bama doesn't care because he doesn't want to draw attention to his relatives over there--on both sides--government and terrorists.

There's no way to replace the entire USPS without changing/eliminating some important laws and regulations. I don't think congress will get on board with doing that anytime soon.

Ya know swilly, you're right. I literally have people lining up in droves to steal all my guns.

Good thing too; it makes them easier to load for disposal afterwards. I bought one of those tractors with spears on the front for loading haybales.....
