HEALTHCARE: GAO: Largest Health Insurers Have Gotten Even Bigger Since Obamacare Passed “Obamacare made it through Congress with top Democrats’ constant assertions that big, corporate insurance companies were the problem, but in the three years after the health-care law passed those insurers only got richer.  The three largest insurance companies held an average of 86 percent of all customers in the individual health insurance market in 2013, up from 83 percent in 2010, when Obamacare was passed, according to a report from the nonpartisan General Accountability Office.

HEALTHCARE: Immigrants baffled by HealthCare.gov lapse “HealthCare.gov is working better, but immigrants are running into what looks like an obvious slip-up. Call it the green card glitch: The website has no clear path to upload the government identification document that shows they are legal U.S. residents, and entitled to benefits under President Barack Obama's health care law. It's a baffling omission, say consumers and counselors assisting with this year's sign-up drive. "It doesn't list the green card as an option to upload," said Elizabeth Colvin of Foundation Communities, an Austin, Texas, group that serves low-income people, including ...

Remember 9/11

Today marks 13 years since the terrorist attacks that took nearly 3,000 American lives. Today, we pause to honor their memory. Almost 3,000 people lost their lives during the attack on the World Trade Center in New York City, at the Pentagon near Washington, D.C. and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania when United Flight 93 crashed. Their lives, though lost, will never be forgotten. We also pause today to thank our first responders - everyone from EMT workers to firefighters to police officers. They served our country valiantly on September 11, 2001, and we offer our eternal gratitude for the role they played in stitching the fibers of our nation back ...

Lose-Lose for the President

Regardless of what White House Press Secretary John Earnest is saying, all is not well at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Ever since President Obama announced his intention to delay executive action on illegal immigration, he's faced a firestorm of criticism from his left flank and those who were promised bold, broad actions in granting millions of illegal immigrants some form of amnesty. While most Americans are breathing a collective sigh of relief over the delay, the Administration is now sweating how the decision put his party in double jeopardy: Democrats were damned by executive amnesty angering Americans and now, they're damned by the delay ...
