"UK phone-hacking trial opens for top Murdoch aides

LONDON (AP)- The trial of two former top editors of Rupert Murdoch's shuttered News of the World tabloid began Monday with the selection of a jury to hear the lengthy, high-profile case sparked by Britain's phone-hacking scandal.
Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson - both former senior Murdoch aides and associates of British Prime Minister David Cameron - are charged with phone hacking and illegal payments to officials. They sat in the dock at London's Central Criminal Court alongside six other defendants on the first day of a trial that Judge John Saunders said could last up to six months.
This is the first criminal trial stemming from a tabloid phone-hacking scandal that erupted two years ago. Revelations of illegal eavesdropping by the News of the World sparked the closure of the 168-year-old newspaper and led to a judge-led media-ethics inquiry and several wide-ranging criminal investigations that have seen dozens of journalists and officials arrested.
The judge told about 80 prospective jurors, from whom a 12-member jury will be chosen, not to discuss the case or seek information about it so they could hear the arguments "free from any preconceptions."

You are really not very bright. It was your beloved Ronald Reagan that closed mental health hospitals in California and across the United States. Governor Reagan closed mental hospitals in California then ended federal mental health programs as president In order to reduce corporate taxes.
On August 13, 1981, Reagan rescinded the law signed by Jimmy Carter which increased funding for Community Mental Health Centers and continued federal government support for such programs. You own it, embrace it.
I suggest, in the future, you might want to check your facts before posting garbage. You won't look so stupid.
A lot of BS so no need for me to feel stupid. Libs in NYS are the ones who dumped patients from institutions into the community in the 70s and have fought every effort to get them off the street if they don't take medication.

And here is another example of the same lib mentality, recently (from Dec 15, 2012), and in Connecticut:

Shocking: Earlier this year, liberals defeated proposed Connecticut law to protect citizens from untreated mentally ill

The exact mental state of the Connecticut schools shooter is unknown at this time, but anyone who kills their mother, 20 school children and themselves is crazy in my opinion. Political correctness and liberal thinking have caused us to deinstitutionalize and mainstream people who clearly should be locked away somewhere. Instead of having asylums, we have turned our entire society into an asylum.

Here’s a fact you might not know – Connecticut is one of only SIX states in the U.S. that doesn’t have a type of “assisted outpatient treatment”(AOT) law (sometimes referred to as “involuntary outpatient treatment”). There’s no one standard for these types of laws, but (roughly speaking) these are laws that allow for people with mental illness to be forcibly treated BEFORE they commit
a serious crime.

Whereas previous legal standards held that the mentally ill cannot be institutionalized or medicated until they harm someone or themselves, or until they express an immediate intent to do so, AOT laws (again, roughly speaking) allow for preventative nstitutionalization or forced medication (I highly recommend reading the data cited in the link I provided in this paragraph, especially regarding what is known as “first episode psychosis”).

AOT laws vary state-by-state, and often bear the name of a person
murdered by an untreated mentally ill person (“Kendra’s Law” in New
York,“Laura’s Law” in California, etc.).

Earlier this year, Connecticut considered passing an AOT law (and a weak one, at that), and it failed, due to protests from “civil liberties” groups.

A website that Kayak.com could have put together for a couple million cost the taxpayers over $600 MILLION. And it doesn't even work.

Turns out one of the big wigs at CGI Inc.(a CANADIAN company) that's raking in the big bucks is a former roommate of Moochelle Obama.

What a coincidence.

Turns out a bunch of the people that manage to get thru to the pi$$-poor website are finding out their insurance is going to double. And they can't keep their doctor.

Turns out Lord Obama was either pathetically ignorant or a pathological liar.

I think the latter is true.

Wow, good for you and your husband, because many middle class people are finding out otherwise.
Some health insurance gets pricier as Obamacare rolls out
Many middle-class Californians with individual health plans are surprised they need policies that cover more — and cost more.
Thousands of Californians are discovering what Obamacare will cost them — and many don't like what they see.
These middle-class consumers are staring at hefty increases on their insurance bills as the overhaul remakes the healthcare market. Their rates are rising in large part to help offset the higher costs of covering sicker, poorer people who have been shut out of the system for years.
Although recent criticism of the healthcare law has focused on website glitches and early enrollment snags, experts say sharp price increases for individual policies have the greatest potential to erode public support for President Obama's signature legislation.
"This is when the actual sticker shock comes into play for people," said Gerald Kominski, director of the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research. "There are winners and losers under the Affordable Care Act."
Fullerton resident Jennifer Harris thought she had a great deal, paying $98 a month for an individual plan through Health Net Inc. She got a rude surprise this month when the company said it would cancel her policy at the end of this year. Her current plan does not conform with the new federal rules, which require more generous levels of coverage.
Now Harris, a self-employed lawyer, must shop for replacement insurance. The cheapest plan she has found will cost her $238 a month. She and her husband don't qualify for federal premium subsidies because they earn too much money, about $80,000 a year combined.
"It doesn't seem right to make the middle class pay so much more in order to give health insurance to everybody else," said Harris, who is three months pregnant. "This increase is simply not affordable."
On balance, many Americans will benefit from the healthcare expansion. They are guaranteed coverage regardless of their medical history. And lower-income families will gain access to comprehensive coverage at little or no cost.
The federal government picks up much of the tab through an expansion of Medicaid and subsidies to people earning up to four times the federal poverty level. That's up to $46,000 for an individual or $94,000 for a family of four.
But middle-income consumers face an estimated 30% rate increase, on average, in California due to several factors tied to the healthcare law.
Some may elect to go without coverage if they feel prices are too high. Penalties for opting out are very small initially. Defections could cause rates to skyrocket if a diverse mix of people don't sign up for health insurance.
Pam Kehaly, president of Anthem Blue Cross in California, said she received a recent letter from a young woman complaining about a 50% rate hike related to the healthcare law.
"She said,'I was all for Obamacare until I found out I was paying for it,'" Kehaly said.
Nearly 2 million Californians have individual insurance, and several hundred thousand of them are losing their health plans in a matter of weeks.
Blue Shield of California sent termination letters to 119,000 customers last month whose plans don't meet the new federal requirements. About two-thirds of those people will experience a rate increase from switching to a new health plan, according to the company.
HMO giant Kaiser Permanente is canceling coverage for about half of its individual customers, or 160,000 people, and offering to automatically enroll them in the most comparable health plan available.

Plot Thickens: Mystery ObamaCare Covergirl Erased from Website

The mystery of the ObamaCare covergirl took yet another strange turn over the weekend, when her smiling face was replaced by a far less intriguing quartet of icons.

The smiling brunette touched off a frenzied hunt, especially after White House officials refused to divulge her name. As frustration with the beleaguered Healthcare.gov website mounted, she became known on the Internet as “Glitch Girl.”

First O'bama ruined O'prah and now this poor girl. O'bama ruined another person's career. But he doesn't care. O'bamacare.

"Calif. Elderly Care Home Closes; 14 Patients Left
CASTRO VALLEY, Calif. October 28, 2013 (AP)
Associated Press
Detectives are investigating an assisted living facility in the San Francisco Bay Area that closed last week and left behind 14 sick and elderly patients, a spokesman for the Alameda County Sheriff's Office said.
Paramedics called to the Valley Manor Residential Care center in Castro Valley found a notice on the door from the state Department of Social Services ordering the site to be closed.
The San Francisco Chronicle and other media outlets reported ( http://bit.ly/1dyvplR ) that paramedics also found bedridden patients attended by a handful of staff members who stayed to help them, despite not being paid. The facility closed Thursday.
Sheriff's Sgt. J.D. Nelson said the staff members who stayed included a cook, janitor and a single caretaker who felt bad for the patients.
Nelson said an investigation could potentially result in elder abuse charges.
The patients were transported to other homes Saturday for temporary care while new places are found for them.
The facility came to the attention of law enforcement that day after paramedics responding to an emergency call found a small staff struggling to care for the residents, Nelson said.
Michael Weston, a spokesman for the California Department of Social Services, told KPIX-TV that social service officials had checked on the facility and were told the patients would be cared for over the weekend.
"I can tell you that the department has been engaged with this facility for quite a while and there is a history of concerns," Weston said. "Apparently, what happened is that the facility staff felt that they were starting to lose the capability to care for these individuals, so they called for help."..."

Thousands of Californians have affordable healthcare plans cancelled--thanks to Obammycare.

"ALL WE'VE BEEN HEARING THE LAST THREE YEARS IS IF YOU LIKE YOUR POLICY YOU CAN KEEP IT," SAID DEBORAH CAVALLARO, A REAL ESTATE AGENT IN WESTCHESTER. "I'M INFURIATED BECAUSE I WAS LIED TO."

All these cancellations were prompted by a requirement from Covered California, the state's new insurance exchange. The state didn't want to give insurance companies the opportunity to hold on to the healthiest patients for up to a year, keeping them out of the larger risk pool that will influence future rates.

Peter Lee, executive director of Covered California, said the state and insurers agreed that clearing the decks by Jan. 1 was best for consumers in the long run despite the initial disruption. Lee has heard the complaints — even from his sister-in-law, who recently groused about her 50% rate increase.

"People could have kept their cheaper, bad coverage, and those people wouldn't have been part of the common risk pool," Lee said. "We are better off all being in this together. We are transforming the individual market and making it better."

Lee said consumers need to consider all their options. They don't have to stick with their current company, and higher premiums are only part of the cost equation. Lee said some of these rate hikes will be partially offset by smaller deductibles and lower limits on out-of-pocket medical expenses in the new plans.

Still, many are frustrated at being forced to give up the plans they have now. They frequently cite assurances given by Obama that Americans could hold on to their health insurance despite the massive overhaul.

"All we've been hearing the last three years is if you like your policy you can keep it," said Deborah Cavallaro, a real estate agent in Westchester. "I'm infuriated because I was lied to."

Supporters of the healthcare law say Obama was referring to people who are insured through their employers or through government programs such as Medicare. Still, they acknowledge the confusion and anger from individual policyholders who are being forced to change.

Cavallaro received her cancellation notice from Anthem Blue Cross this month. The company said a comparable Bronze plan would cost her 65% more, or $484 a month. She doubts she'll qualify for much in premium subsidies, if any. Regardless, she resents losing the ability to pick and choose the benefits she wants to pay for.

"I just won't have health insurance because I can't pay this increase," she said.

Most Americans are required to have health coverage starting next year or pay a fine of $95 per adult or 1% of their income, whichever is greater. The fines increase over time.
