HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett plans to undergo hernia surgery in Pittsburgh and will transfer power temporarily to the lieutenant governor.
His office described the procedure being done this morning as minor and said he was expected to be under general anesthesia for about an hour.
The laparoscopic procedure at Allegheny General Hospital’s outpatient surgery facility is to repair an abdominal hernia.
Mr. Corbett's press secretary Jay Pagni said Wednesday that the governor will recuperate for several days at his home in Shaler, and his schedule is clear until Monday, when he will return to work . He obtained his injury while hauling fracking companies campaign contributions in large brown paper bags.

Health law cybersecurity challenges
February 25, 2014
As the Obama administration raced to meet its self-imposed deadline for online health insurance markets, security experts working for the government worried that state computer systems could become a back door for hackers.
Documents provided to The Associated Press show that more than two-thirds of state systems that were supposed to tap into federal computers to verify sensitive personal information for coverage were initially rated as ‘‘high risk’’ for security problems.
Back-door attacks have been in the news, since the hackers who stole millions of customers’ credit and debit card numbers from Target are believed to have gained access through a contractor’s network.

Veteran White House Correspondents: Obama ‘Least Accessible’ Of Any President
February 26, 2014

Three past presidents and veterans of the White House Correspondents Association agreed that President Barack Obama is the “least accessible” of any modern president.

A Tuesday panel discussion for the 100th anniversary celebration of the White House Correspondents Association featured veteran journalists – National Journal’s George Condon, ABC News’ Ann Compton, and Reuters’ Steve Holland – agreeing that Obama is the “least accessible” president to reporters.

When asked if Obama is the “least accessible” of any president they have covered, Holland replied,“I would say that.”
...
The journalists’ comments are direct criticism of an administration that vowed to increase transparency throughout government, declaring on the White House website that the administration “is committed to creating an unprecedented level of openness in Government.”

Democratic governors: Obama needs to sell Obamacare
2/25/14

With the battle over Obamacare moving from Washington to the states and a deluge of ads battering the law on TV, Democratic governors delivered a message to President Barack Obama over the weekend: We need help.

Four years out from passage of the Affordable Care Act, it’s state executives in Obama’s party who may be bearing the heaviest load when it comes to making the law work and selling it to voters. They’ve grappled with their own glitch-ridden enrollment sites and fought their own legislatures over Medicaid expansion.

Now, many of them are running for reelection with the ACA hanging over their heads — and only a limited effort from national Democrats and their president to reverse the consistently negative public opinion of the law.

Krauthammer’s Take: Obamacare ‘Impossible from the First Day’
February 25, 2014

Two-thirds of small businesses set to experience a premiums increase is just the latest Obamacare promise to be broken, and the administration knew it all along, Charles Krauthammer asserts. There was no way the government could fulfill all its stated obligations of insuring up to 40 million uninsured people, providing subsidies, and keeping premiums low, among others, without increasing the cost of the program.

“That was impossible from the first day,” he said on Tuesday’s Special Report. The only way it was remotely possible with through “hidden transfers of wealth” written in to the law, such as younger, healthier people subsidizing others.

“You could say it’s social justice, but you also have to say it’s deception,” he continued “That’s how the numbers were made to come out so the administration would say the government isn’t going to pay a dime.”

wasn't Reagan 78 in his last year in office. Hillary is only 66 so say she's prez for 8 years starting in 2016 so she'd be 76 in her last year of the presidency. although Reagan lost his marbles long before he finished up his presidency. Hillary has hers and bill would probably run the whitehouse if he gets an intern working for him LMAO

‘The Imperial Presidency’
House holds hearing on executive overreach
February 26, 2014

Members of Congress and constitutional law experts testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, warning that the legislative branch is in danger of ceding its power in the face of an “imperial presidency.”

The hearing,“Enforcing the President’s Constitutional Duty to Faithfully Execute the Laws,” focused on the multiple areas President Barack Obama has bypassed Congress, ranging from healthcare and immigration to marriage and welfare rules.

Jonathan Turley, Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington University, testified that the expansion of executive power is happening so fast that America is at a “constitutional tipping point.”

“My view [is] that the president, has in fact, exceeded his authority in a way that is creating a destabilizing influence in a three branch system,” he said.“I want to emphasize, of course, this problem didn’t begin with President Obama, I was critical of his predecessor President Bush as well, but the rate at which executive power has been concentrated in our system is accelerating. And frankly, I am very alarmed by the implications of that aggregation of power.”

Greenpeace co-founder: No scientific proof humans are dominant cause of warming climate
February 26, 2014

A co-founder of Greenpeace told lawmakers there is no evidence man is contributing to climate change, and said he left the group when it became more interested in politics than the environment.

Patrick Moore, a Canadian ecologist and business consultant who was a member of Greenpeace from 1971-86, told members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee environmental groups like the one he helped establish use faulty computer models and scare tactics in promoting claims man-made gases are heating up the planet.

“There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years,” he said.

Clinton NEVER left a surplus. He left a PROJECTED surplus that never materialized. At least be honest with the facts whether you're a republican or democrat. Nothing worst than a liar.

Q: During the Clinton administration was the federal budget balanced? Was the federal deficit erased?

A: Yes to both questions, whether you count Social Security or not.

Please know the difference between debt and surplus.

Clinton’s large budget surpluses also owe much to the Social Security tax on payrolls. Social Security taxes now bring in more than the cost of current benefits, and the "Social Security surplus" makes the total deficit or surplus figures look better than they would if Social Security wasn’t counted. But even if we remove Social Security from the equation, there was a surplus of $1.9 billion in fiscal 1999 and $86.4 billion in fiscal 2000. So any way you count it, the federal budget was balanced and the deficit was erased, if only for a while.

Under accrual accounting, the annual reports showed surpluses of $69.2 billion in fiscal 1998,$76.9 billion in fiscal 1999, and $46 billion for fiscal year 2000. So even if the government had been using that form of accounting the deficit would have been erased for those three years.
