Hillary’s Upward Failure

JACKSONVILLE – We have only nineteen months until Election Day. That’s a blink of an eye in the sweep of history, but a long, hard slog in a political campaign. It’s time to get to work.

HEALTHCARE: Obamacare sign-ups hit technical snags on big weekend “The Obama administration says some people trying to sign up for health insurance ahead of a looming deadline are getting snagged by technical difficulties. Administration spokeswoman Katie Hill says some haven’t been able to get their income information electronically verified. That’s crucial because the amount of financial assistance to help pay premiums is based on people’s income. The IRS handles income verification for the HealthCare.gov website. The glitch seemed to be affecting people with new applications. People who previously submitted their income details - but ...

HEALTHCARE: ObamaCare fines rising in 2015, IRS prepares to collect “Don't have health insurance? Get ready to pay up.  The ObamaCare-mandated fines for not having insurance are rising in 2015 -- and for the first time, will be collected by the Internal Revenue Service. The individual requirement to buy health insurance went into effect earlier this year. But this coming tax season is the first time all taxpayers will have to report to the IRS whether they had health insurance for the prior year.  The fines for the 2014 year were relatively modest -- $95 per person or 1 percent of household income (above the threshold for filing taxes), ...

Tea Party leader: IRS scandal not “phony”

Last week, President Obama launched a series of economic speeches intended to draw attention to his alleged vision for the nation. In those speeches, he brushed off the series of scandals that have marred his Administration for the last year. While they weren’t named, one can easily theorize he meant the Benghazi cover-up, the IRS scandal, the NSA spying, and Fast & Furious. Three speeches were made last week by the President, and all three involved him calling any and all scandals “phony.” Consider: Wednesday’s speech: “But with this endless parade of distractions and political posturing and phony scandals, Washington has taken ...
