A homeless man who turned over $850 he found on a New Jersey street is a bit poorer for his honesty now, after the Hackensack Human Services Department cut his newly-granted Medicaid and housing benefits for failing to report new income.
James Brady, 59, a former news photographer, found an envelope with $850 in it in April, and turned it in to the Hackensack police, The Bergen Record reported. Brady became a minor celebrity after word spread of his good deed, with honors from the city council and media coverage shedding light on his plight.
After his story drew attention, Brady had begun to receive psychiatric help and medication for emotional trauma — a canceled business meeting at the World Trade Center on 9/11 left him reeling for years, The Record reported. He received housing and subsistence vouchers from the city, and is beginning to turn his life around.
He also got the $850. No one claimed the money after six months of waiting.
But when he received the money, he didn’t realize that he needed to report the income to human services. And the department subsequently cut him off through Dec. 31 from benefits, including the valuable housing voucher, because he failed to report new income he received, USA Today reported
Still, help appears to be flowing toward him. Bergen County’s United Way set up an account for people to make donations of support for Brady through its Compassion Fund.

How do Americans get affordable health care? The only thing that's happening now is 50 million people will lose their health insurance, and the price of health insurance is going through the ceiling.
So, what do you think needs to be done for Americans to have affordable health care? Obviously what we're doing now is having the exact opposite effect.

i hope poor Lily hasn't passed out[again] I'm so looking forward to our reasoned, polite, factual conversation about the causes of the mortgage disaster.
Well, the article was rather lenghty, perhaps she needs a lot of time to digest it and formulate her "arguments". Homer seems to be awol as well. In his case he probably needed a snack for energy.

Those of us that live in the world of reality are not shock by this, but Liberals living in their Utopia Bubble are devastated when Facts meets Reality!!
Obamacare Train Wreck…The president held Democrats hands and told them not to worry. But that's also what he, Bill Clinton and other horse whisperers said in 2010. The "moderates" who made the Nancy Pelosi majority went on to be wiped out in the largest turnover of House seats since 1938!! Each and every day Obamacare continue to be discredited!!
Than we have another Obama Historic Record: Over 47 Million on Food Stamps for the past 13 consecutive Months, Work Force participation lowest since 1978!! Since January 2009 to October 2013, more than 11 million people have dropped out of the labor force — from 80,507,000 to October’s 91,541,000!!

State Obamacare exchanges enroll 3 pct of target so far

Mon Nov 11, 2013
4:08pm EST

(Reuters)- President Barack Obama's healthcare reform has reached only about 3 percent of its enrollment target for 2014 in 12 U.S. states where new online health insurance marketplaces are mostly working smoothly, a report released on Monday said.

States with functioning exchanges have signed up 49,100 people compared with the 1.4 million people expected to be enrolled for 2014, according to the report by healthcare research and consultancy firm Avalere Health.

With enrollment in the federal HealthCare.gov website serving 36 states stalled by technical failures, the weak sign-ups for functioning insurance exchanges could be due to the administration's difficulty to promote the program as a success, Avalere said.

The government is due to release national enrollment figures for the month of October this week. Open enrollment ends March 31, 2014.

Supporters of Obamacare and health insurers fear that scant participation in the private insurance exchanges will prevent them from becoming a sustainable new individual market, including the right mix of young and healthy members to offset coverage for older, sick people.

Before the Oct. 1 launch of enrollment, policy experts had expected that Americans would sign up gradually to the new Obamacare plans, consistent with the roll out of other healthcare programs like Medicare's prescription drug program for the elderly in 2006, according to Avalere President Dan Mendelson.

The turnout in states with functioning marketplaces has so far been weak rather than gradual, according to Mendelson. This could mean HealthCare.gov 's problems, which have prompted high-level oversight hearings led by Republican lawmakers, could be weighing on all states, he said

"The technical problems of the website and enrollment generally are causing the administration to go much slower on the positive messaging that is necessary to build enthusiasm for the law and that's an issue," Mendelson said.

Avalere looked at 11 of the 14 states and Washington D.C. that elected to build their own exchanges for individual insurance.

Some of the states included in the tally have also had technology problems along the way. Hawaii did not launch online enrollment until the middle of October. Vermont's governor has asked to extend current individual policies into March 2014 to give residents more time to shop because of issues on its state's site. Colorado and Minnesota have also experienced problems with their web sites.

Avalere's numbers are based on its own enrollment model and the Congressional Budget Office's 2014 forecast that 7 million people will enroll in the exchanges nationwide.

The 49,100 enrollments also include Medicaid sign-ups in Hawaii and Rhode Island, which did not provide a break-out, Avalere said. It based its numbers on public and press reports for the above mentioned states as well as Connecticut, the District of Colombia, Kentucky, Maryland, Nevada, New York and Washington.(Reporting by Caroline Humer; editing by Andrew Hay)

Rawstory is a great link. They never let anyone who isn't a liberal post on their comment boards. Once they find one who isn't one of their own, they ban them. That is how the liberals work. I don't see that happening on any of the conservative links, we love to let idiots aka liberals post on those sites. Rawstory is a bias, racist, bigoted site.
