I do think we need to try and push people into working instead of welfare. I could supports efforts toward that goal. But drug testing no, it is unconstitutional. The ACA is not our answer, universal health care is. You are right, the middle class is getting nailed with most of the cost, and it is going right into the pockets of greedy insurance companies. Increase taxes on the rich and fund the nonprofit insurance for everyone with the tax base.

Anti-secrecy activists rallied in front of the Capitol Saturday, protesting NSA spying. US citizens and world leaders are rattled at reports of vast surveillance of phone and Internet communications.
Christian Science Monitor
By Mark Guarino 3 hours ago

At a rally in Washington Saturday, self-exiled whistleblower Edward Snowden described “a system of pervasive surveillance” operating against American citizens, and he urged technology and free rights activists to spread awareness of the spying violations in the name of reform.

Mr. Snowden, the former contractor for the National Security Agency (NSA) who provided leaks about agency phone and Internet interceptions, is a key figure in the current controversy involving the agency. His message to the rally came as a statement sent from Russia, where he now lives under temporary asylum to avoid prosecution in the United States.

Just last week, leaks linked to Snowden revealed that the NSA had allegedly eavesdropped on cell phone calls by German Chancellor Angela Merkel. This follows protests by other world leaders from Brazil, France, Spain, Italy, and as many 30 other countries – most of them US allies – who say NSA spying is a violation and could seriously impair their relationship with the US.

“Today, no telephone in America makes a call without leaving a record with the NSA. Today, no Internet transaction enters or leaves America without passing through the NSA's hands. Our representatives in Congress tell us this is not surveillance. They’re wrong,” Snowden said.“Now it’s time for the government to learn from us.”

NEW YORK (Reuters)- New York's civil rights leaders on Saturday angrily decried the city's brewing "shop-and-frisk" scandal, in which two major retailers stand accused of profiling black shoppers who say they were detained by police after buying luxury items.

"We've gone from stop-and-frisk to shop-and-frisk," said Reverend Al Sharpton, president of National Action Network, alluding to a police crime-fighting tactic that critics say amounts to racial profiling.

A Network representative is set to meet next week with Mark Lee, the chief executive of Barneys New York, following allegations from two black shoppers that they were detained by New York police and accused of fraud after buying luxury items at Barneys.

In a third such allegation made this week, actor Rob Brown of HBO's "Treme" told the New York Daily News on Friday that he had been "paraded" through a midtown Mahattan Macy's in handcuffs in June, and held for an hour, after purchasing a $1,350 gold Movado watch for his mother.

Brown said he came forward after reading news accounts of others who had had similar experiences at Barneys.

Brown told the newspaper he "implored" cops to check his ID, but "they kept telling me,‘Your card is fake. You're going to jail.'"

Retailer Barneys New York publicly apologized this week, and Macy's Inc said late on Friday that it is investigating Brown's allegations.

Ok why would you need to tell people this? What does it matter. If illegals cant get benefits then why would they be applying? Isnt this declaration kinda saying go ahead and sign up illegals because we dont care? I dont get it.
==========

WASHINGTON (AP)— The Obama administration is stressing that information submitted while signing up for coverage under the new health care law will not be used to enforce immigration law.

That's always been the practice, but lingering fear among some immigrants that personal details could be used against them led the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency to clarify. In a memo released late Friday, the agency reiterated that it does not use information provided during the enrollment process to pursue civil immigration enforcement.

People living illegally in the U.S. are barred from benefits under the Affordable Care Act health law, but U.S. citizens and legal residents living with them may be eligible.

Some applicants must provide information on the citizenship status of those who live with them to help make sure the household is processed correctly.

Hooray for Joe Manchin. He always does the right thing and is on the right side of an issue. Joe calls em as he sees em regardless. Joe Manchin for president!!!!!!!!!!

But Mr. Zients also said that the website “is fixable,” and that "by the end of November, HealthCare.gov will work smoothly for the vast majority of users.”

Still, although 700,000 people have applied for coverage through the new online markets, it's believed that only a fraction of that number actually managed to sign up.

Critics in Congress – Democrats as well as Republicans – want to slow down the process.

Several Senate Democrats have spoken out in favor of delaying the date by which individuals must buy health insurance, Politico.com reports. Sen. Joe Manchin (D) of West Virginia is drafting legislation that would delay the individual mandate. Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (D) of New Hampshire and Mark Pryor (D) of Arkansas want to extend the enrollment period.(Shaheen and Pryor are up for re-election next year.)

The huge floating structure "stands about four stories high and was made with a series of modern cargo containers... Locals refer to it as the secret project," CNET wrote, adding that Google did not respond to requests for comment.

Melissa......this is why I call you a sheeple. Republicans block everything. He had the first two years to do what he wanted. So instead of economice, Obama choose the Obamacare. So instead of working on getting Americans to work, he decides to hit them with a tax law. You sit back and drink that kool aid and say wonderful stradegy. They bullied it through and your friend Nancy Pelosi with vote on it and we will read it later. And no compromise and debate. And you wonder why there was anomosity. So far alot of what people said has happen. Jobs lost or brought to part time. Companies dropping healthcare. And they are having trouble implicating it. Plus Obama said you could keep your healthcare and doctor, which turned out to be a lie. But you are still defending it like a good sheeple

If the American Jobs Act, proposed by the Obama administration last year, had been passed, the unemployment rate would probably be below 7 percent. Blocked by republicans.
The public sector has been badly neglected -- repair of roads, bridges, schools, the research and development of new technologies, to name a few. There are jobs waiting to be filled that only public revenues can finance, in other words. So there is no reason to allow the further deterioration of things that benefit all Americans, regardless of income level.
Being blocked by the republicans.
And I believe we should raise minimum wage. Do away with the Bush tax cuts. It's been proven, trickle down does not work.

According to the Dept of health your figure is a bit high. The number that receive any portion of their support from from welfare assistance--including food stamps--it is 29,900,000 or roughly 8% of the total population in the United States. Only about 1.7% of that number receive most of their income (50% or more) from these programs.
And remember, the vets, older people and disabled are in included in those numbers. Plus, there are people working that receive assistance because of low wages. AND, children that are to young to work.

The whole idea behind AKA is the more uninsured signing, the more it will pay for itself. Delaying is a bad idea.
I don't think Joe would make a good president right now.
