Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity.

With approval levels hovering around record lows, Obama has spent most of his campaign-related efforts this year raising money for struggling Democrats, who risk losing control of the U.S. Senate in the Nov. 4 midterm election.

Most candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with him during their election races because of his sagging popularity.

Not so Lieutenant Governor Anthony Brown of Maryland, who is running for governor, and Governor Pat Quinn of Illinois, who is running for re-election. Obama plans to appear at an event for Quinn later in the evening.

“You’ve got to vote,” Obama repeated over and over at a rally for Brown in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, near Washington.

Democrats have a history of not turning up to vote in midterm elections.

“There are no excuses. The future is up to us,” Obama said.

A steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium while he spoke

Ted Cruz: Those Doctors That Are Opposing a Travel Ban Are Working For the Administration and Repeating WH Talking Points







Ted Cruz: Those Doctors That Are Opposing a Travel Ban Are Working For the Administration and Repeating WH Talking Points


Public health officials are using White House talking points in trying to calm fears over a potential Ebola outbreak in the United States, says Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

Like many of his fellow Republicans and a growing number of Democrats, Cruz wants a travel ban imposed on people leaving three West African countries currently dealing with Ebola outbreaks.

"The Obama White House is digging in not listening to the voices of common sense coming from both sides of the aisle," Cruz said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."

Crowley who is an Obama Hack, doesn't realize that Obama's Ebola experts are also policy hacks...lol. Great job pointing that out Ted Cruz.

Obamacare ‘Bronze Plan’ Premiums Expected To Jump An Average Of 14% In 2015


Obamacare ‘Bronze Plan’ Premiums Expected To Jump An Average Of 14% In 2015

Washington Times


Obamacare “bronze” plan owners may be in for a shock next year. Investors predict the cheapest healthcare offering under the Affordable Care Act could jump nearly 14 percent in price.

In an analysis of expected rates for the biggest 15 cities in the nation, including Washington, D.C., Investor’s Business Daily reported Friday that the cost for the plan could increase by an average of 13.9 percent for 40-year-old non-smokers earning 225 percent of the poverty level.

Plan owners in Seattle, Wash. will see the biggest price difference. The cost of the bronze plan, after subsidies, will jump by 64 percent, from $60 to $98 per month.

Obama Ebola LIE: U.S. Military Will Not Have Contact With Ebola Patients; Ebola TRUTH: They Will Handle Infected Specimens



US Troops Who Contract Ebola Will Be Quarantined in Liberia

Breitbart

Ebola Lie: U.S. Military Will Not Have Contact With Ebola Patients; Ebola Truth: They Will Handle Infected Specimens

Over 500 American troops are in West Africa, and according to Maj. Gen. Darryl Williams, commander of U.S. Army Africa, said on October 16 while briefing reporters in the Pentagon by telephone from Liberia, none will directly be treating Ebola patients. However, he said that a select group of sailors will be handling mobile labs that contain bodily fluids of Ebola patients.

“I’m not an epidemiologist, but it’s been shown that this disease is most manifest when handling bodily fluids–blood, other sorts of fluids, and there is no plan right now for U.S. soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines to do that,” said the general. “Now, the exception is the mobile labs that were here, and they are triple-protective.”

“The sailors that are in there performing the confirm-or-deny on the Ebola virus, they are wearing PPE, and they are testing for this virus,” said Williams, later adding, “They are handling specimens of people who have been inflicted with the Ebola virus.”

Nevertheless, he indicated that the risk of infection is “relatively low.”

“As long as you exercise basic sanitation and cleanliness sort of protocols using the chlorine wash on your hands and your feet, get your temperature taken, limiting the exposure, the–no handshaking, those sorts of protocols, I think the risk is relatively low,” explained the general.

Burn in hell you POS Obama !!!!! "relatively low" ARE YOU SHITTING ME???????????????????

This president has refused to enforce immigration laws, and diseases are now here that we've never had. He sends our military into the mess, then tells THEM they can't come home for treatment???? How can we stop this insanity and rid ourselves of the dictator?

101st Airborne Won’t Get Full Protective Hazmat Suits for Ebola Mission in West Africa - Unforgivable!!


101st Airborne Won’t Get Full Protective Hazmat Suits for Ebola Mission in West Africa

Nashville Public Radio


Troops from the 101st Airborne Division leading the military response to Ebola in West Africa will only need gloves and masks to protect themselves from the deadly virus, so said Gen. David Rodriguez at a Pentagon briefing Wednesday.

“They don’t need the whole suit – as such – because they’re not going to be in contact with any of the people,” the commander of U.S. troops in Africa said.

Soldiers from the 101st Airborne will primarily be building hospitals, ultimately leading what could be a contingent of 4,000 American service members. They’ll be housed either in tent cities at military airfields or in Liberian Ministry of Defense facilities, Rodriguez said.

Soldiers’ health will be monitored through surveys and taking their temperature on their way in and out of camps. If a service member does get sick, Rodriguez said they will be flown home immediately for treatment.


And this.............Health officials admitted this past week that the death rate in the Ebola epidemic has risen to 70 percent, up from 50 percent.




Wild Thing's comment........

Ted Cruz: Congress Needs to Reconvene to Pass Flight Ban


Cruz: Congress Needs to Reconvene to Pass Flight Ban


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted the Obama administration for refusing to ban flights from countries with massive outbreaks of the Ebola virus and urged Congress to reconvene to pass a flight ban on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.

Cruz reported that he wrote a letter to the FAA two weeks ago suggesting that they ban flights from Ebola-ravaged countries, but “unfortunately, the Obama administration has not responded in over two weeks, and this is a serious public health threat.”

He further criticized the federal government’s approach to the spread of the Ebola virus and urged Congress should take action to ban flights, saying “the approach of the Obama administration so far has been like its approach to many other things, fundamentally unserious. And the time has come to ban commercial air travel from countries that have an active Ebola outbreak. The arguments the administration is giving against it don't make any sense…and if the president won't act, then Congress should reconvene, and Congress should act to protect the American people.”

Cruz stated that he was “encouraging” other elected officials to support the ban. Cruz expressed that he was “encouraged” by the increased support that a flight ban had received, declaring that “in the last two weeks you've seen more and more elected leaders, both Republicans and Democrats, arriving at this common sense position, a basic principle of prudence: let’s protect Americans. That ought to bring everyone together.”

He added that, “the arguments that the Obama administration is giving [against a flight ban], they don't make any sense. So, for example, one argument they're giving is they say that they've implemented screenings at five airports. Now, that's a positive step. But, the problem is screenings only work if someone is demonstrating symptoms. Since Ebola has up to a 21-day incubation period, if someone is not demonstrating symptoms, the screenings are ineffective.”



Wild Thing's comment.......

Good for Ted Cruz. As usual, Cruz makes perfect sense while Obama continues to display a fundamental lack of sanity.

Caribbean, South American Countries Close Borders to Combat Ebola


Caribbean, South American Countries Close Borders to Combat Ebola

Colombia, Jamaica, Guyana, and Trinidad and Tobago have all announced travel bans as Ebola concerns grow.


Colombian authorities announced that anyone entering their country from Ebola-stricken countries will face heavy scrutiny. Colombia’s National Health Institutes have said they developed a questionnaire to determine who should be under suspicion of potentially having contact with Ebola. Colombian newspapers have reported that some have already been detained due to the newly instituted executive actions. Fernando Ruiz, Colombia’s vice minister of health, said of the reports, “The cases are not suspicious. They are simply people who have traveled to places where Ebola is present. That is the reason for their medical observation.” He added, “The three cases are not under strict surveillance. Their temperature is measured two times a day for 21 days. At this moment, we are not alerted or worried. The individuals seem healthy. Two of them already completed their observation period.”

The Jamaican government on Thursday authorized an immediate travel ban against persons traveling from the Ebola-affected nations of Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. Jamaican authorities said that anyone who has traveled into the three West African countries in the last twenty-eight days is forbidden from entering their country. Jamaican citizens who have traveled to the African lands within the past twenty-eight days will be subject to quarantine.

On Thursday, the government of Trinidad and Tobago banned entry to visitors arriving from several African countries which have had documented Ebola infections. Trinidad and Tobago Health Minister Dr. Fuad Khan said that anyone arriving from Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Democratic Republic of Congo, or Nigeria will be forbidden from entry. Citizens who have traveled to those countries within the past six weeks will be quarantined for 21 days, the Health Ministry reported.

The government of Guyana also announced that its diplomatic services overseas were told not to extend visas to individuals from the Ebola-affected West African nations.

U.S. President Barack Obama announced that he disagrees with a travel ban to and from Ebola-stricken nations and told reporters that “a flat-out travel ban is not the way to go.”

But of course we won't do this, Obama so fr will not allow our country to have borders on any issue.

Joe Biden's Son Hunter Kicked Out of Navy for Drug Use


Joe Biden's Son Hunter Kicked Out of Navy for Drug Use

Vice President Joe Biden's son Hunter was kicked out of the Navy Reserve this year after he tested positive for cocaine, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.

A Yale-educated lawyer, the 44-year-old Hunter Biden was commissioned as a Navy ensign May 7, 2013 and assigned as a public affairs officer at a reserve unit in Norfolk, Va., the Journal reported. But just a month later when he checked into his new unit and was given a drug test, he popped for cocaine.

He was discharged in February of this year.

In a statement, Biden said it was "the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge. I respect the Navy’s decision. With the love and support of my family, I’m moving forward.”

It was not clear what type of discharge he received. Military personnel discharged for drug usage usually do not receive honorable discharges, although Biden's statement says he received an "administrative discharge."

The Navy did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

CNN has more:

The U.S. official said the Navy never had contact with the vice president's office over the issue, and that standard procedure for failed drug tests is administrative discharge. The vice president's office didn't comment on the report.

In a speech given at the commissioning of the USS Delaware in 2012, Navy Secretary Ray Mabus noted that Hunter would be joining the service. His brother Beau also served in the military, as an attorney in the Army with a deployment to Iraq.

Biden's job in the Navy Reserve was only a part-time commitment. He has kept busy as head of the legal unit for Ukraine's largest private gas firm, according to The Washington Post. He also serves as managing partner at Rosemont Seneca Partners and is an adjunct professor at Georgetown University.

This is SHOCKING: CDC Admits 100-150 People a Day Entering US from Ebola Infected Countries (Video)





This is SHOCKING: CDC Admits 100-150 People a Day Entering US from Ebola Infected Countries (Video)


Rep. Cory Gardner (R-CO) grilled Obama administration officials today at the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations hearing on Ebola in the US.

Those testifying on Thursday include Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the CDC, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at NIH, Dr. Luciana Borio, assistant commissioner of counterterrorism policy at the Food and Drug Administration, and John P. Wagner, acting assistant commissioner at the Office of Field Operations, Customs and Border Protection at the Department of Homeland Security.

The panelists admitted that 100 to 150 West Africans from Ebola infected areas are entering the US every day.

There currently is no quarantine for West Africans entering the US. The deadly Ebola virus, which has a 70% mortality rate, may have a 42 day incubation period.

And, 2000 are entering the US by plane each year without proper Ebola screenings.


Rep. Cory Gardner: (Dr. Frieden) I think you mentioned there were approximately 100 to 150 people a day coming into the United States from the infected areas.

Dr. Tom Frieden: That’s my understanding, yes.

Gardner: ANd, Mr. Wagner you admitted we’re screening 94% of those people?

John P. Wagner: As of today that covers about 94%.

Gardner: So if 94% are being covered, that means somewhere between two and three thousand people a year are coming into this country without being screened from the infected areas?

American Airport Police Officers Union Calls for Commercial Flight Ban From Ebola Countries


American Airport Police Officers Union Calls for Commercial Flight Ban From Ebola Countries

The American Alliance of Airport Police officers is calling for a ban on commercial air travel with West African countries battling Ebola.

NJ.com reported:

A nationwide group representing airport police officers, including those at Newark Liberty and John F. Kennedy International, is calling for a ban on commercial air travel to the United States from countries battling Ebola outbreaks.

The American Alliance of Airport Police officers is drafting a letter to members of Congress calling for the travel ban, along with a requirement that American medical personnel and Ebola patients traveling from the affected West African countries be flown on military aircraft.

“We’re calling for a restriction on flights from these afflicted countries,” said Bobby Egbert, a spokesman for the Port Authority Police Benevolent Association union, an alliance member organization whose officers patrol Newark Liberty and Kennedy airports.

Newark and JFK are among five airports nationwide singled out by the Federal Centers for Disease Control and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for enhanced Ebola screening. Federal officials say the five airports are the U.S. points of entry for 94 percent of fliers from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, where the virus has killed more than 4,000 people.

Barack Obama: I Hugged and Kissed Ebola Nurses (Video)




Barack Obama held a press conference yesterday on Ebola after a second nurse came down with the disease in Dallas on Wednesday morning.

Obama said he kissed and hugged an Ebola nurse.

“I want to use myself as an example just so people have sense of the science here. I shook hands with, hugged and kissed, not the doctors, but a couple of the nurses at Emory because of the valiant work that they did in treating one of the patients.”

CDC Allowed Second Nurse With Ebola To Board Flight AFTER She Called To Report She Had A Fever



CDC Allowed Second Nurse With Ebola To Board Flight AFTER She Called To Report She Had A Fever


One health official said to me somebody dropped the ball. I then called the CDC and the agency said that this nurse, nurse Vinson, did in fact call the CDC several times before taking that flight and said she has a temperature, a fever of 99.5.

But the person at the CDC looked at a chart and because her fever wasn’t 100.4 or higher, she didn’t officially fall into the group of high risk. Now I think what’s disconcerting to people is that you would think common sense would tell you, well, after the first nurse, Nurse Pham became sick with Ebola, you would have thought, well, out of an abundance of caution let’s just keep her there and not have her get on the flight.



Wild Thing's comment............

Today on the radio on one of the talk shows, a woman called in and said she was a nurse and at the hospital where she works the only thing they have done to get ready for Ebola patients is the hospital has put a sign up...... one single sign on a wall saying to be aware there may be patents entering with Ebola. Nothing else has been done to make sure they would know what to do.

So when the CDC jerk says every single hospital is ready that is a full blown lie.

Obama Forced To Scrap Second Day Of Fundraising And Campaigning Over Ebola Crisis




Obama Forced To Scrap Second Day Of Fundraising And Campaigning Over Ebola Crisis

The Hill


Obama scrapped his scheduled trip to Rhode Island and New York on Thursday to continue monitoring the Ebola crisis, the White House announced late Wednesday.

“The President will remain at the White House to follow up on today’s Cabinet meeting on the government’s Ebola response,” the White House said in a statement.

More details about the president’s activities on Ebola will be released on Thursday morning.

The announcement comes after Obama canceled a campaign trip to New Jersey and Connecticut Wednesday to meet with Cabinet members after a second Texas hospital worker was diagnosed with Ebola.

He pledged the federal government would adopt a “much more aggressive” response.

The administration has so far declined to impose a travel ban on flights from the West African nations where the Ebola outbreak started and has proved most pernicious.

Centers for Disease Control now watching 125 people for Ebola signs


CDC now watching 125 people for Ebola signs


The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now monitoring 125 people for symptoms of the deadly Ebola virus, including 76 who came into contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, a Liberian national who died of the disease last week in a Dallas hospital.

CDC Director Tom Frieden told reporters Tuesday that so far, only one nurse who helped care for Duncan has contracted Ebola and no other people have been diagnosed with the disease.

Nina Pham, 26, who Frieden did not identify by name, remains in stable condition, he said, while the CDC continues to monitor her boyfriend and her dog.

“It’s possible we will see other people become ill,” Frieden said.

Frieden told the media that the CDC is now stepping up preventative measures to stop the spread of Ebola to healthcare workers, and will send a CDC team of experts on the disease ‘within hours” to any hospital in the United States where an Ebola case is identified.


The CDC has been criticized for its slow response to Duncan, who was first sent home from the hospital even though he had a 103 degree fever and had told a nurse he just arrived from Liberia.

Frieden initially said Pham contracted Ebola from Duncan through a “breach in protocol,” but he later walked back that statement.

“I’ve been hearing loud and clear from heathcare workers around the country that they are worried, that they don’t feel prepared to take care of patients with Ebola,” Frieden said.

The CDC’s stepped up involvement is aimed at helping healthcare workers stay free of the disease while treating Ebola patients.

“I wish we had put a team like this on the ground the day the first patient [Duncan] was diagnosed,” Frieden said. “That might have prevented this infection. But, we will do that from this day onward, for any case that is diagnosed within the U.S.”

Frieden said the CDC is also considering a plan to move new Ebola cases diagnosed in the U.S. to one of four biocontainment patient care units, which are located in Nebraska, Montana, Georgia and Maryland.

The CDC continues to monitor 48 people who came into contact with Duncan and so far, none have shown signs of the illness, which has a 21-day incubation period. Frieden said now that more than 10 days have passed, it is less likely those people will contract Ebola.

Report: Bergdahl Investigation Completed…But Release Being Delayed


Report: Bergdahl Investigation Completed…But Release Being Delayed

Waiting till after elections in November

The Army has completed its investigation into Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s 2009 disappearance from his post in Afghanistan that led to his subsequent capture by the Taliban, according to a news report Thursday.

A report by the investigating officer, Brig. Gen. Kenneth Dahl, is now being reviewed by commanders, but will not be released, according to the San Antonio Express-News.

Army spokesman Wayne Hall said the review process likely would be lengthy, and that “the Army’s priority is ensuring that our process is thorough, factually accurate, impartial, and legally correct,” according to the report.
The Army is looking into whether Bergdahl had deserted his post in Afghanistan or was away without leave before he was captured, which would be violations of, and punishable under, the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

The Obama administration secured Bergdahl’s release in May in exchange for releasing five senior Taliban detainees from the Guantánamo Bay detention facility, a swap that sparked anger on Capitol Hill from both Democrats and Republicans.

The administration said it had ignored a law requiring it to notify members of Congress 30-days ahead of any detainee release from the facility, since it conflicted with the president’s constitutional right to protect Americans overseas, and out of concern that a leak could derail the deal and endanger Bergdahl or his rescuers.

2nd Case: Texas Health Care Worker Tests Positive For Ebola…Update: Infected After Duncan Was Diagnosed, Was Wearing Full Protective Gear…


A Texas healthcare worker who provided care for Thomas Duncan, the first patient to be diagnosed with Ebola outside Africa, has tested positive for the deadly virus, officials have said.

The worker at Texas Health Presbyterian hospital in Dallas reported a low-grade fever on Friday night and was isolated and referred for testing, the state’s department of health services said. The preliminary test result was received late on Saturday.

The unnamed worker had provided care for Duncan, who died on Wednesday after being diagnosed with Ebola last month, while in the US.

Dr David Lakey, commissioner of the department of health services, said: “We knew a second case could be a reality, and we’ve been preparing for this possibility. We are broadening our team in Dallas and working with extreme diligence to prevent further spread.”

Health officials have interviewed the patient and are identifying any contacts or potential exposures. People who had contact with the healthcare worker after symptoms emerged will be monitored based on the nature of their interactions and the potential they were exposed to the virus, the department said.

Richard Engel reporter in Northern Iraq Says Obama Strategy Clearly Not Working...'Enormous Contradictions'



Report from NBC's Richard Engel, who is in Northern Iraq doesn't sound good. Iraqi Army in no better shape than before it collapsed, new Iraqi government just a reshuffle of the same characters, nobody on the ground in Syria, ISIS once again on the edge of Baghdad. Our strategy not working.


ENGEL:

There are enormous contradictions in the U.S. strategy that are becoming more apparent every day. Let's start with Iraq. Even though this is really one conflict that has no border between it, we are artificially putting this border between Iraq and Syria because ISIS is on both sides. But let's start with Iraq.

The Iraqi army is in no better shape now than it was when it collapsed. The new Iraqi government is not instilling confidence in the people. It is not instilling confidence in the armed forces. The U.S. spent years and years and billions of dollars to build the Iraqi army, only to watch it collapse and hand over so many of its weapons.

So it is completely unrealistic to think that now, with a little bit of outside help and a lot of American good will, that the army is going to fundamentally change and the Iraqi government, which is really just a reshuffle of the same characters, is going to fundamentally change and suddenly inspire the Iraqi people

Report: 92 Percent of Mass Shootings Since 2009 Occurred in Gun-Free Zones



Report: 92 Percent of Mass Shootings Since 2009 Occurred in Gun-Free Zones


Breitbart


On October 9, the Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) released a revised report showing that 92% of mass public shootings between January 2009 and July 2014 took place in gun-free zones.

The CPRC report was released in response to an Everytown for Gun Safety study claiming only 14% of mass public shootings took place in gun-free zones. Everytown actually claimed 86% of such incidents occurred in places where guns were allowed.

CPRC showed that the 86% claim rests on Everytown's "inclusion of attacks in private homes" and "numerous errors in identifying whether citizens can defend themselves." For example, Everytown "[ignores] rules that prevent general citizens from carrying guns [for self-defense]" in certain cities, and they fail to recognize that "allowing police to carry guns is not the same thing as letting civilians defend themselves."

So Everytown might count an attack in a public area in Los Angeles as a mass shooting where guns are allowed because certain guns are allowed in the city with a permit. However, they miss the fact that L.A. County issues a minuscule number of concealed carry permits, and many of the ones that are issued are granted only "to wealthy [political] donors."

Using the same numerical standard that Everytown used--four or more people killed--but taking all rules and regulations against firearm possession into account, CPRC showed that only 8% of mass public shootings occurred in places where citizens could have guns for self defense.

When you read the history of guns and people not being able to have guns in their homes it's a history of dictators, tyrants, and despots crushing citizens.

Senator Pat Roberts : “I’m Convinced IRS Scandal Links to Valerie Jarrett” (Audio)






Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) told conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt that he thinks the IRS scandal leads to Valerie Jarrett in the White House.


The Daily Caller

Republican Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts said Friday that he thinks the IRS targeting scandal was driven by Valerie Jarrett’s office in the White House, according to information that he saw that Democrats tried to “whitewash.”

Roberts told talk radio host Hugh Hewitt that he participated in a Senate Finance Committee investigation into the IRS scandal but “the effort was made by the majority, by the Democrats in the Congress, to simply end that investigation,” which he called a “whitewash.”

“I’m convinced that even Valerie Jarrett was involved,” Roberts said.

“I think this was White House-driven. I think all of the information at least that I saw leads to that, so we really have to finish this investigation,” Roberts said.

House Speaker John Boehner: Obama Intends To Import Gitmo Terrorists To The U.S.


Boehner: Don't Import Gitmo Terrorists to America....Obama to Defy Congress and Shut Down Guantanamo Bay.

Weekly Standard


House Speaker John Boehner has issued this statement in response to a press report indicating that the Obama administration might bring the Gitmo terrorists to America:

“An overwhelming majority of the American people and bipartisan majorities in the House and Senate oppose importing the terrorists imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay into the United States, yet the White House continues to move forward with its plan. Even as Islamic jihadists are beheading Americans, the White House is so eager to bring these terrorists from Guantanamo Bay to the United States that it is examining ways to thwart Congress and unilaterally re-write the law. Not only is this scheme dangerous, it is yet another example of what will be this administration’s legacy of lawlessness.

“While Republicans stand united against this ploy, each and every Democrat should make their position known. Do they support the president’s maneuver to override a bipartisan law, thumb his nose at the American people and the Constitution, and bring these terrorists to U.S. soil? Or do they stand with the American people and oppose this dangerous plan? House Republicans have kept our Pledge to America to keep these terrorists out of the United States, and we will do everything within our power to keep our pledge and hold the administration accountable.”

More Than A Dozen States Plan To Cancel Policies Not In Accordance With Obamacare



More Than A Dozen States Plan To Cancel Policies Not In Accordance With Obamacare

FOX News

More than a dozen states plan to cancel health care policies not in compliance with ObamaCare in the coming weeks, affecting thousands of people just before the midterm elections.

"It looks like several hundred thousand people across the country will receive notices in the coming days and weeks," said Jim Capretta of the Ethics and Public Policy Center.

The policies are being canceled because states that initially granted a reprieve at the request of President Obama are no longer willing to do so.

In coming weeks, 13 states and the District of Columbia plan to cancel such policies, which generally fall out of compliance with the Affordable Care Act because they don’t offer the level of coverage the law requires.

Virginia will be hardest hit, with 250,000 policies expected to be canceled.

And because federal law requires a 60-day notice of any plan changes, voters will be notified no later than November 1, right before the Nov. 4 midterms.

Many of those forced out of their current plans and into ObamaCare may not be able to keep their doctors. They also could face higher deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses, making ObamaCare an election issue on the eve of voting.

Obama had originally unequivocally promised that underhis health care plan, everyone could keep their doctors and plans.

In 2009, he told the American Medical Association, "If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period.If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period.No one will take it away. No matter what."

The president later was forced to admit that any plan without the additional benefits required under ObamaCare faced cancellation.

But that unleashed a nasty political backlash, forcing him to back down and call for states and insurers to extend those policies forthree more years.

Some said he didn’t have much choice. "There were some five or six million people who were at stake here and the federal exchange was in no condition to even process a few hundred thousand people much less millions," said Joe Antos of the American Enterprise Institute.

Many states flatly refused to extend and now comes the new round of states that plan to cancel policies.

Obama to Hide Obamacare Rates Till After Election Day



Obama to Hide Obamacare Rates Till After Election Day


HealthCare.gov, the online portal where millions of Americans must by health insurance, will not display premiums for 2015 until after the 2014 elections, the Associated Press reported Wednesday.

Obama administration officials told the AP that Americans will not be able to find out if their health insurance premiums are going up “until the second week of November,” which conveniently falls after Americans will go to the polls November 4th.

“Insurers say one big challenge for next year will involve millions of returning customers,” the AP reports. “It’s not really a technology issue, but a time crunch that also coincides with the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.”

More power plays from Obama.

Obama: “You Cannot Get Ebola Sitting Next To Someone On A Bus” – Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Actually, Yes You Can


Obama: “You Cannot Get Ebola Sitting Next To Someone On A Bus” – Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Actually, Yes You Can

Speaking in a video message to residents of West African countries currently experiencing outbreaks of Ebola hemorrhagic fever, President Barack Obama dispensed advice on how residents can avoid and respond to the deadly disease, telling them that “the first step in this fight is knowing the facts” – including, according to the president, that a person “cannot get [Ebola] through casual contact like sitting next to someone on a bus.”

“First, Ebola is not spread through the air like the flu,” Obama explained in the video released by the White House Thursday. “You cannot get it through casual contact like sitting next to someone one a bus. You cannot get it from another person until they start showing symptoms of the disease, like fever.”'

Obama also explained that “the most common way you can get Ebola is by touching the body fluids of someone who is sick or has died from it, like their sweat, saliva or blood, or through a contaminated item like a needle.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), however, advises humanitarian aid workers from the United States who travel to countries currently experiencing Ebola outbreaks to “avoid public transportation” if they develop a fever or experience other Ebola-like symptoms while on their trip.

Listed among their online recommendations for travelers journeying to Liberia, Guinea, Nigeria or Sierra Leone, the CDC advises travelers who begin to exhibit possible Ebola symptoms and choose to visit a doctor to “Limit your contact with other people when you travel to the doctor; avoid public transportation.”

Marines headed to Africa to fight Ebola outbreak



Marines headed to Africa to fight Ebola outbreak

The Pentagon is deploying 100 troops from a special Marine response force to West Africa to help fight the Ebola outbreak.

"These personnel will arrive in Senegal tonight and in Liberia tomorrow," said Pentagon press secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby at a briefing on Wednesday.

The 100 troops — mostly Marines, along with some Navy corpsmen — are part of a force of up to 3,600 U.S. troops that could deploy to West Africa to help efforts to stem the spread of the deadly Ebola virus. The outbreak has so far claimed more than 3,000 lives and could infect 1.4 million more.

So far, about 350 troops are on the ground now, running laboratories, setting up treatment facilities, training healthcare workers and assisting with logistics.

The Marine unit will provide supply and transportation assistance for the anti-Ebola effort until Army units arrive later this month to take over the possibly year-long mission.

They will deploy with four MV-22 Osprey and two KC-130 Hercules tanker aircraft, Kirby said.

The troops come from a special Marine air-ground task force responding to crises in Africa, and are deploying from Morón, Spain, to Dakar, Senegal, and Monrovia, Liberia.

There are growing concerns, though, about the safety of U.S. troops being deployed to fight the virus after the Pentagon said Tuesday that they could come into contact with Ebola samples.

Gen. David Rodriguez, the head of U.S. Africa Command, said at a Pentagon briefing Tuesday he was confident U.S. troops taking on the mission would be safe.

“I am confident that we can ensure our service members' safety and the safety of their families and the American people,” he said.

Dear God protect these men. The hatred that President Obama has for the American people, our American lifestyle, and our American history absolutely knows no bounds. He despises us.
