FISA Court rules metadata collection constitutional

The Court, after having fully considered the United States Government's earlier filed proposed application...and having held an extensive hearing to receive testimony and evidence on this matter on July 18, 2013, granted the application for the reasons stated in this memorandum opinion and in a primary order issued July 19, 2013, which is appended hereto.

In conducting its review of the government's application the court considered whether the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution imposed any impediment to the government's proposed collection. Having found none in accord with US Supreme Court precedent, the court turned to Section 215 to determine if the proposed collection was lawful and that orders requested from this court should issue. The court found that under the terms of Section 215 and under operation of the canons of statutory construction such orders were lawful and required, and the requested orders were therefore issued.

This Time It’s Boehner, Not Obama, Who Needs To Avoid A Government Shutdown

Barack Obama pledged again today that he “will not negotiate over the full faith and credit of the United States”— that is, over the debt limit. Remember that until Republicans took control of the House in 2011, the debt limit had never been used to force significant substantive changes — because, after all, both sides ultimately support raising the debt limit, so it’s a lousy negotiating chip. On the other hand, it’s long been accepted that the debt limit vote is one that Members of Congress don’t like to take, and so finding some symbolic fig leaf (or bundling it with other legislation) does have a long history.

So a shutdown (or a debt limit breach) has to end with Boehner (supposedly) selling out conservatives, and doing it with far more press coverage and attention than he would get from (again, supposedly) selling them out before a shutdown by cutting a deal. That’s a disaster for him — and, on the other side of the Capitol, for Mitch McConnell — and one he’ll work hard to avoid.

Character Matters: President Obama Extends Wage And Overtime Protections To Home Care Workers

The presidency is a powerful position. So powerful that it makes it easy to forget the reason one entered public service. But this president, President Obama, never forgets. Today was another shining example of a president who never forgets about the Americans who work hard, don’t ask for much, and deserve better than they’re getting. Today, the administration announced final regulations to include home care workers under the Fair Labor Standards Act, making them eligible for minimum wage and overtime pay staring in 2015.

My favorite quote from my favorite fictional president, Andrew Sheppard of American President, is this:“Being president is entirely about character.”

These are the acts that show the president’s character. Character isn’t about following the polls or hogging the limelight or hob-nobbing with the elite. Character of a president is about what he does when nobody is looking, on issues no one is sending out e-newsletters (with big donate buttons) about, for ordinary people who need help.

Character is about doing the right thing by those who have no voice, those who are bone-tired from working hard and never ask for a handout, those who do not have the money to donate to a political campaign or the time to sign a petition. Character is about being the president for the least of us.

Latest Obamacare Lie Claims Doctor Will Be Forced To Ask Patients About Sexual History

In a New York Post op-ed, the inventor of the death panels lie, Betsy McCaughey, now claims that the Affordable Care Act is turning “doctors into government agents” by having them ask patients about their sex history.

But the questions McCaughey finds so outrageous are already routine physician practice. In fact, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s recommendations for doctors refers to questions about sexual history as “an important part of a regular medical exam or physical history.”

Instead, what Obamacare accomplishes on sexual health is requiring insurers to reimburse preventative care at no additional cost to doctors or patients, and these can include sexual health, from STI counseling, birth control, to Pap smears.

“Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are H. L. Hunt (you possibly know his background), a few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid.”– Dwight D.

Pure spin on your part. You have trouble with facts ... just like the failure Bammy. Bammy is weak and has embarrassed America. His election (twice) speaks loudly about the people who elected him ... weak and deserving of failure.

Boehner moves closer to government shutdown

Some problems are so complex and difficult, they’re nearly impossible to solve. Avoiding a government shutdown isn’t one of them.

After his far-right members vetoed his preferred solution, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) could have very easily reached out to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), put some modest enticements on the table, and picked up plenty of votes to approve a stop-gap spending measure. The whole thing could have been wrapped up in an afternoon, and the media would have cheered Boehner for constructive, bipartisan governing.

But that’s not what the laughably weak Speaker is inclined to do…

Health Reform in Action: 6 in 10 Uninsured Eligible Obamacare Premiums Under $100

Exactly zero of the right wing red-hot-siren warnings about shooting health insurance costs (“rate shock”) has panned out, but plenty of rate shock has been received on the other end of the scale – with tons of people shocked to find checks from their insurance companies in their mailboxes, rates reduced for their children with pre-existing conditions, and outrageously inexpensive rates in the state exchanges about to open in less than two weeks.

And here comes another: of the people who are eligible for either Medicaid or premium subsidies under the Affordable Care Act, six out of 10 Americans currently uninsured will be able to get coverage for $100 or less per month

Obama to extend wage law to cover two million home care aides

The Obama administration said on Tuesday it will extend the protection of U.S. minimum wage and overtime law to almost 2 million home health workers who assist the elderly and disabled.

Home health aides, personal care aides and certified nursing assistants will be brought under the coverage of the Fair Labor Standards Act, effective in January 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor said in a statement.

“Today we are taking an important step toward guaranteeing that these professionals receive the wage protections they deserve while protecting the right of individuals to live at home,” said Thomas Perez, who was sworn in on September 4 as President Barack Obama’s new labor secretary.
