The Obama administration is engaged in a broad push to make more home loans available to people with weaker credit, an effort that officials say will help power the economic recovery but that skeptics say could open the door to the risky lending that caused the housing crash in the first place.

Nope.
Only when the actual "source" is the publication/rag itself.

When the publication/rag is merely publishing data from credible sources that data is credible.

For instance the Constitution is the Constitution, whether published by the Huffington Post or quoted by Rush Limbaugh.

But the "opinion" of the New York Times is subject to attack; just as is Linbaughs, and we can disagree over which is more credible.

Typical Right Winger - and Rep. V.P. candidate Paul Ryan's idol.

... As Michael Ford of Xavier University's Center for the Study of the American Dream wrote (external),“In the end, Miss Rand was a hypocrite but she could never be faulted for failing to act in her own self-interest.”

“The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand,” said Paul Ryan, the GOP's young budget star at a D.C. event honoring the author.

Journalist Patia Stephens wrote of Rand:

[She] called altruism a “basic evil” and referred to those who perpetuate the system of taxation and redistribution as “looters” and “moochers.”
She wrote in her book “The Virtue of Selfishness” that accepting any government controls is “delivering oneself into gradual enslavement.”

Rand also believed that the scientific consensus on the dangers of tobacco was a hoax.

By 1974, the two-pack-a-day smoker, then 69, required surgery for lung cancer.

And it was at that moment of vulnerability that she succumbed to the lure of collectivism.

Doctors could cost an awful lot more money than books earn, and she could be totally wiped out by medical bills if she didn’t watch it.

When the time came when she could benefit from these same programs, she did so…in secrecy.

In the end, the queen of individual rights and limited government and staunch opponent of the welfare state, turned out to be nothing more than your common, everyday hypocrite.

Ayn Rand a/k/a - just another Right Wing Hypocrite.

Just like her followers.

The hits just keep coming.

Thanks Right Wingers for demanding those Good 'Ol Family Values:

Late Tuesday evening, Mark Sanford won the GOP primary runoff to become the Republican Party's official congressional nominee in South Carolina.

In case you don't remember:

Sanford lied,
claiming to be hiking the Appalachian Trail,
when, in fact,
he was in Buenos Aires,
cheating on his wife.

Let's see:

Abandoning his duties,
Lying to his staff and the public,
Secretly flying to another continent,
( have you seen the available talent in S. Carolina ?)
To get laid by his mistress.

So who is a better Family Values Right Winger - Sandord, Gengrich, or Ensign - a tough call.

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO……address the Nation as Franklin D. Roosevelt did and propose a second Bill of Rights. Among these are:

The right to a useful and remunerative job in the industries or shops or farms or mines of the nation;

The right to earn enough to provide adequate food and clothing and recreation;

The right of every farmer to raise and sell his products at a return which will give him and his family a decent living;

The right of every businessman, large and small, to trade in an atmosphere of freedom from unfair competition and domination by monopolies at home or abroad;

The right of every family to a decent home;

The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health;

The right to adequate protection from the economic fears of old age, sickness, accident, and unemployment;

The right to a good education.

All of these rights spell security!



HEY LIBTARDS – NONE – I MEAN NONE – OF THOSE THINGS ARE RIGHTS!!!!!

Republican lawmakers in Tennessee are threatening to block Republican Gov. Bill Haslam’s school voucher bill over fears that Muslim schools could receive funding.

The Knoxville News Sentinel reported on Monday that Haslam hinted that he would withdraw his bill after objections from Republican lawmakers that it was not broad enough and that the vouchers could be used by Islamic schools.

Over the weekend, state Sen. Jim Tracy (R) had told The Murfreesboro Post that he had “considerable concern” that tax dollars could go to schools that teach principles from the Quran.

Tracy, who is on the Senate Education Committee and identifies himself as a member of the Church of Christ, insisted that Islamic school funding was an “an issue we must address” before the voucher bill can go forward....

Every time I drive by a "Mega Church" and
- see millions and millions and millions or real estate not subject to taxes,
- bought with millions and millions of dollars in donations that we subsidized because it was deductible, and
- see the millions of millions of millions of dollars they make on investment income we subsidize because it's tax free,

I appreciate the Right Wing's hypocrisy more and more -
after all -
they hate welfare - unless of course it's welfare for them or their church.

The greatest Right Wing Hypocrisy of the last election was a sign in front of this Right Wing tax-subsidized MegaChurch claiming Obama was a socialist.

Great - let's save that $233 billion by cutting Medicare off to anyone over the age of 80.

Heck, they been soaking the system for at least 15 years and have received more than triple in benefits than they ever paid in - so it's pure socialism.

We'll save a lot more than $233 billion - and we'll stop subsidizing those who have already receives way, way, way, more than they ever paid in.

Why subsidize them instead of our kids and the rest of America.

I'm sure you agree. After all, how can we give socialist healthcare to old people and let our children die ?

Yeah, it sooo unfair that the White House stopped giving tours, but hey, Republicans got 97% of what they wanted with the sequestor - wonder who's fostering the death panels now.

Cancer clinics are turning away thousands of Medicare patients. Blame the sequester.
Posted by Sarah Kliff on April 3, 2013 at 5:46 pm
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/...

Cancer clinics across the country have begun turning away thousands of Medicare patients, blaming the sequester budget cuts.

Oncologists say the reduced funding, which took effect for Medicare on April 1, makes it impossible to administer expensive chemotherapy drugs while staying afloat financially.

Patients at these clinics would need to seek treatment elsewhere, such as at hospitals that might not have the capacity to accommodate them.

...Legislators meant to partially shield Medicare from the automatic budget cuts triggered by the sequester, limiting the program to a 2 percent reduction — a fraction of the cuts seen by other federal programs.

But oncologists say the cut is unexpectedly damaging for cancer patients because of the way those treatments are covered.

Medications for seniors are usually covered under the optional Medicare Part D, which includes private insurance. But because cancer drugs must be administered by a physician, they are among a handful of pharmaceuticals paid for by Part B, which covers doctor visits and is subject to the sequester cut.

The federal government typically pays community oncologists for the average sales price of a chemotherapy drug, plus 6 percent to cover the cost of storing and administering the medication.
Since oncologists cannot change the drug prices, they argue that the entire 2 percent cut will have to come out of that 6 percent overhead. That would make it more akin to a double-digit pay cut....

Published 2009.

"In the economic crisis, public hospitals are needed now more than ever. If you're down on your luck without insurance, the county hospital can be your last resort.

Recently thousands of letters went out across Las Vegas telling cancer patients that the only public hospital in the state was closing its outpatient clinic for chemotherapy.

It's the next thing in the recession - communities cutting back on services like schools or cops or public hospitals because tax revenues have fallen with the economy.

One of the charity patients who got that letter in Las Vegas is Helen Sharp, who didn't realize how a crash on Wall Street might threaten her life.

"I don't want to die. I shouldn't have to die. This is a county hospital. This is for people that, like me, many people have lost their insurance, have not any other resources. I mean I was a responsible person. I bought my house. I put money away. I raised my two children. And now I have nothing. You know my house isn't worth anything. I have no money. And I said 'What do I do, but what do all these other people do after me?''And they said we don't know,'" Sharp told 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley."

Published 2012.

"Financial pressures are forcing some community cancer centers to close and others to make changes, including selling their practices to hospitals.

Experts say the trend is eroding cancer care and driving up costs because treatment is significantly less expensive at community centers than at hospitals.

A new report from the Community Oncology Alliance found that in less than five years, 241 clinics have closed across the country, including 10 in Ohio. None of those was in the Columbus area.

The alliance found that hundreds of practices are struggling financially, in large part because of Medicare reimbursement. Almost 400 have entered into agreements with hospitals because, in many cases, that’s the only way they could stay afloat.

A study by Avalere Health showed that Medicare covered less than 60 percent of cancer-treatment costs in 2009"
