Bipartisan foolishness to dictate your fitness

‘Cause this is a top priority for the federal government – never mind violations of the First and Fourth Amendments, balancing the budget, tax reform, federal transparency and corruption, apparently: A new House bill would task the Department of Health and Human Services with creating exercise guidelines for all Americans. Under the bipartisan bill, introduced by Representatives Ron Kind (D., Wis.) and Aaron Schock (R., Ill.), HHS would publish a “Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans” report every ten years that would recommend certain levels of exercise for different groups of Americans, with a special emphasis on children, based on ...

News Briefing for Thursday, March 5 TEA PARTY PATRIOTS: Obamacare protests resemble campaign rallies (Tea Party Patriots mentioned) “If the scene outside the Supreme Court on Wednesday resembled dueling campaign rallies — and it did — that was because many people's views on the hotly contested Obamacare case being argued inside fall along partisan lines. On one side were workers for conservative and free-market groups who were trying to outshout those on the other side from union and health care advocacy groups who, at one point, tried to sing over the pointed rhetoric coming from "Tea Party Patriots" and others…” http://www.usatoday.c...

Tax refunds for illegal immigrants?

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has officially confirmed that it’s going to allow illegal immigrants to apply for up to three-years-worth of tax refunds. Yes, you read that right. Illegal immigrants, who broke the law by entering the U.S. and continued to break the law by residing here, can now claim benefits from the IRS. The policy, of course, is all thanks to President Obama’s executive action on amnesty. On Capitol Hill, some are rightfully labeling it <a href="http://www.wsj.com/articles/irs-confirms-illegal-immigrant-tax-refund-ruling-sparking-gop-outcry-1425341738" target="_blank">[1] </a>an “amnesty bonus.” Senator ...

SCOTUS takes on Obamacare, round two

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in King v. Burwell. The stakes [1] couldn’t be higher. At issue is the legality of Obamacare subsidies. The Obama Administration must argue it has the legal authority to issue subsidies in all 50 states, even though the Affordable Care Act only allows for subsidies through an “exchange established by the state.” That very point was driven home by none other than Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, who admitted in 2012 that [2], "[I]f you're a state and you don’t set up an Exchange, that means your citizens don’t get their tax credits. “ If the court upholds the challenge, it ...

HEALTHCARE: We all win if Supremes gut ObamaCare “…If the high court reins in the subsidies, here’s what’s likely to happen: --People with ObamaCare subsidies will still be helped - No matter how the justices rule, it will have no impact on the poor. Nine out of every 10 people who are newly insured because of ObamaCare are on Medicaid, which will be unaffected. Yes, close to 6 million middle-class Americans get the questionable subsidies and so pay a fraction of their plan’s actual cost, while taxpayers pick up three-quarters of the bill. If the court nixes those subsidies, these people will be facing huge premium hikes — and the ...
