Obamacare: Tom Coburn loses cancer doctor
Cancer-stricken Sen. Tom Coburn revealed Tuesday that his health insurance under Obamacare doesn’t cover his oncologist, but said he still is receiving excellent care.
“I’m doing well from a health standpoint, got great docs,” Coburn said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Tuesday when asked about his health.“Fortunately — even though my new coverage won’t cover my specialist — I’m going to have great care and I have a great prognosis.”
The Oklahoma Republican’s spokesman confirmed to POLITICO that since the senator enrolled in his health insurance plan under Obamacare, his coverage has been reduced and he lost coverage for his cancer specialist. Coburn will continue to pay out of his own pocket and see the oncologist, his office said.
As you may know, Senator Tom "Dr. No" Coburn, is the only senator with the gall to block S. 1963, the Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act of 2009. This is a bill to amend title 38, United States Code, to provide assistance to caregivers of veterans, to improve the provision of health care to veterans.

No other senator, left, right, center, Democrat, Republican, Independent, freshman or senior, from the north or the south, from sea to shining sea, stands in opposition to this bill. NO veterans organization stands in opposition to this bill.

No decent American would dare stand in the way of this legislation to provide support for those who must bear the burden of war now and for decades to come. No parent would dare torment another by abandoning them to their worst nightmare.

No one, that is, except for one man. A man who was trained to heal, A man who took an oath to provide care and comfort. A man who took an oath to protect and defend the constitution. A man who is happy to let soldiers die and abandon their families in their darkest hour. That small, pathetic excuse of man is Dr. Tom Coburn, Republican Senator from Oklahoma.

Thanks Tom..........

Addendum: The Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act was ultimately was signed in to law (Warning: PDF) in May, 2010, after the Republicans got their asses handed to them. They understood this shit stain was behaving so outrageously even the usual suspects couldn't continue enabling him.

But apparently their memory is shorter than a fruit fly on meth, because once again ... this monster turns his back on the men and women who least deserve the abuse. If the people who rushed into Ground Zero when everyone else was busy running the other way don't deserve the GOP's support, who the hell do they work for?

Thanks Tom !

Fox News Has One Of The Oldest, Whitest Audiences In Television

Who woulda thought? LMAO!

Rapidly aging viewers and declining ad revenue make the network's future uncertain

Liberals love to criticize Fox News, and when they do, conservatives love to remind them that Fox has more viewers than CNN and MSNBC combined, which is true.

It's an impressive-sounding factoid, until you take into account just how small the entire audience for cable news is. To put it in perspective, Fox News just manages to pull a million viewers during primetime while the lowest-rated network news program, CBS Evening News, has an average nightly audience of 8 million.

And Fox has another problem - their audience is old and only getting older, with the median age of their viewers being 68. There's nothing intrinsically wrong with having one of the oldest audiences in television, except when it comes to advertising, because the target demographic for most ads is between 25 and 54.:

Fox's viewership in that key demographic of 25-54 has been steadily declining while CNN has experienced gains. Unless the trend reverses itself or Fox finds a way to enfranchise younger viewers, their audience will begin to shrink in the upcoming years.
Fox also has one of the whitest audiences in television:

There just aren't enough older white people that can elect a white President!! LMAO!! While losing their base as more and more old people die off their ratings are going down, just like McCain and Romney did.......LOL!

For the time being, the network will do just fine on the money from its unusually high subscription fees. But how it fares in the future will depend on its ability to make its audience look less like a mostly-white retirement community and more like the rest of country.

Anybody who knows anything knows that FOX is the network of the elderly, White, bigoted and cranky. FOX is going to suffer from natural attrition.

As far as advertising, they still do well with pain meds, erectile dysfunction meds, Hoverounds, walk in showers and prune commercials

96 Percent of Dems Who Support Minimum Wage Hike Don’t Pay Their Interns

Liberals are really pushing raising the minimum wage for 2014. Thirty states have put forward bills to increase it, and Democrats have made this issue part of their political strategy for this year.
Yet, a new study from the Employment Policies Institute (EPI) has exposed the proponents of raising the minimum wage of their "hypocrisy." It seems that 96% of Democrats who support such measures don't pay their interns.

The abstract of the EPI study noted that "the same Members of Congress who are supporting a 40% wage hike on private sector employers are simultaneously failing to provide any wages to their own employee interns."

Find a 2014 paid Internship in Washington, DC. Internships, no matter what they offer, whether it’s academic credit or just old-fashioned good experience, are incredibly valuable. But paid internships are really the icing on the cake. Not only do you get exposure to your desired field and connections for the future, but you get compensated for your hard work as well! And paid internships can be found all across the country. Companies in all arenas are looking for paid interns, from accounting to editorial. A few of the most famous programs include Ernst & Young, one of the largest accountancy firms, Walt Disney, which includes housing for its interns on top of pay, and IBM, whose internship salaries increase as additional credits toward your degree are earned.

In fact, most students who intern in paying gigs are treated like regular employees, getting benefits like paid time off, overtime pay, and job-related travel reimbursement. Essentially, your paid internship is like a mini career, and it’s even better because it’s taken on before you’ve even entered the “real world.” You get the best of both worlds with these opportunities so start your paid internship search now and cash in.

Obama is a leper to members of his own party. Why? Obamacare. 60% of voters don't like it.

Contrary to Obama's repeated promises and Democrats' assurances, Obamacare has:
* reduced a 40 hour work week to 29 hours
* forced Americans into multiple part time jobs to make up for lost hours
* caused employers to drop or reduce employee health coverage
* led to canceled health insurance policies
* required family doctors to drop previously covered patients
* and hugely increased insurance premiums.

No House or Senate Republican voted for this disaster. Not one.

Voters will remember this, Democrats, because you're to blame.

Vulnerable Democrats Distance Themselves From Obama after State of the Union
Senators up for reelection quickly criticize the president

President Barack Obama was barely out of the Capitol after delivering his State of the Union address Tuesday before members of his own party began distancing themselves from the president.

In an interview with CNN after the speech, Alaska Sen. Mark Begich, one of the most vulnerable Democrats up for reelection this year, took aim at Obama’s focus on using executive actions to go around Congress.”I’ll be anxious to see what these executive orders are,” he said.“But if they go too far you’ll clearly hear push back from me. There’s no question about it.”
...
Arkansas Sen. Mark Pryor said in a statement that he was disappointed with Obama for not striking a bipartisan tone.
...
Even before Obama’s speech, Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu blasted the White House’s opposition to delaying an increase in flood insurance premiums.

Colorado Sen. Mark Udall, in a separate interview with CNN after Obama’s remarks, repeatedly refused to say whether he would campaign with the president this year.“We’ll see what the president’s schedule is,” he said.“We’ll see what my schedule is. But Coloradans are going to reelect me based on my record, not on the president’s record.”

Obama’s post-speech roadshow conspicuously excludes any state where vulnerable Democratic incumbents are up for reelection. And in Wisconsin, where Democrat Mary Burke is trying to unseat Gov. Scott Walker this fall, the candidate is avoiding Obama’s scheduled appearance on Thursday.

Earlier this month, North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan avoided an appearance with Obama in her home state.

Why is the U.S. government unnecessarily collecting massive amounts of citizen financial data from private sources?

Hackers are drooling in wait.

Talk about an oxymoron: "Consumer Financial Protection Bureau"

-----
WashingtonExaminer.com , January 28, 2014

Federal consumer bureau data-mining hundreds of millions of consumer credit card accounts, mortgages Officials at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau are conducting a massive, NSA-esque data-mining project collecting account information on an estimated 991 million American credit card accounts.

It was also learned at a Congressional hearing Tuesday that CFPB officials are working with the Federal Housing Finance Agency on a second data-mining effort, this one focused on the 53 million residential mortgages taken out by Americans since 1998.

The mortgage information is being compiled in a database that can be "reversed engineered" by hackers seeking information for identify theft, according to an expert cited during the hearing.

Another bogus Obamacare story: The GOP's 'Bette'!!!!!!!!!

The centerpiece of the Republican party's attack on the Affordable Care Act following President Obama's State of the Union address this week was the story of "Bette."

Bette was an otherwise unidentified Washington state resident featured in the official GOP response to the Obama speech delivered by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.). According to Rodgers, Bette had written her a letter stating that she had "hoped the president’s healthcare law would save her money – but found out instead that her premiums were going up nearly $700 a month." The lesson, according to Rodgers: "This law is not working."

Bette has now been tracked down by her hometown Spokane Spokesman-Review. She's Bette Grenier, who owns a small business with her husband. Unsurprisingly, her story is much different from the sketchy description provided by Rodgers. That description perplexed experts, including Washington State Insurance Commissioner Mike Kreidler, who couldn't understand how a state resident "would have no choice but to pay $700 per month more for a policy that meets the Affordable Care Act’s coverage requirements," the newspaper reported.

But her plight has nothing to do with Obamacare. It's a product of her own apparently flawed decision to refuse even to look into the benefits the healthcare law might provide. And it's another sign of how threadbare the GOP criticism of the Affordable Care Act has become. If this is the best they can conjure up for what might be one of the best-watched TV appearances a back-bench Republican congresswoman gets to deliver, shouldn't they give up already?

The quotes from House GOP leaders are rather remarkable. Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said health care reform may lead to identity theft; Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) falsely claimed “premiums are going right through the roof”; Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) warned that consumers who visit healthcare.gov may become victims of fraud; and Caucus Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) said vulnerable constituents may be put “on the casualty list.”
All they need to make this a news story is a person willing to say that this happened to them. They have plenty of those, and the media doesn’t bother to vet them to see if they even tried to use the website or if they can get a cheaper plan via the exchanges.
The media hops from one outrage to the next while never turning on the GOP to ask a question about why these stories feed their political agenda and so consistently turn out to be lacking in credibility. That’s not to say there aren’t problems with the rollout — but there is no need to waste space discussing something that was already repeating what any sane person would have expected.
This is a coordinated effort to sabotage a law. Republicans aren’t hiding their efforts, but why should they? Instead of fact-checking Republicans or even showing an ounce of skepticism no matter how many times they are burned by Republican aides leaking a false story to them, the media laps up the GOP’s drama-filled tales.
