In its report, the GAO found that 23 states restrict how insurance plans offered in the ObamaCare exchanges may include abortion as a benefit, and 28 do not. The GAO then surveyed 18 insurance providers within the 28 states that do not restrict abortion coverage to determine how the coverage is being handled. According to the GAO, 17 of the 18 providers surveyed said they were not billing policyholders separately for the abortion coverage. “(The insurance providers) did not itemize the premium amount associated with non-excepted abortion services coverage on enrollees’ bills nor indicate that they send a separate bill for that premium amount,” the report said. The remaining insurance provider told the GAO that their policyholders receive a separate charge on their bills “for coverage of services for which member subsidies may not be used.” In response to the report, the Department of Health and Human Services said states and state insurance commissioners are primarily tasked with insuring provisions such as these are enforced, but that the agency will “address issues of concern in the appropriate matter.” The agency said “CMS acknowledges additional clarification may be needed” on how abortion services may be covered under Obama Care health care plans.Need more clarification? No kiddin'! Our sick society that disposes of children like recyclable waste has been groomed not to care about what happens--now even with tax dollars. The question remains, will God judge us as harshly as the worshipers of Molech. Especially given that we've killed somewhere in the neighborhood of 10,000s to 1 from the Old Testament. *Sick*
“The truth of the matter is that the politics did shift midsummer because of that problem,” Obama said in the interview, which will air on Sunday’s Meet the Press on NBC. “I want to spend some time, even as we're getting all our ducks in a row for the executive action, I also want to make sure that the public understands why we're doing this, why it's the right thing for the American people, why it's the right thing for the American economy.”This is a President who is either so oblivious to the essence of how he comes off to the American people, or--and it's a significant "or"--he just doesn't care at this point. And all you have to do to understand truly how much he doesn't is to add up all the things he chooses to take actions on vs. the things he's just fine with letting slide. ISIS is a "manageable problem" but immigration is such a big issue that it is more important to give amnesty than to secure the border--particularly when ISIS has set up a base of operation in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Just across the border from El Paso! And all while letting Libyans into our flight schools, after telling our special ops in Benghazi to "stand down!"
The Obama administration has lifted longtime restrictions on Libyans attending flight schools in the United States and training here in nuclear science, according to a final amendment of the ban recently approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
Less than two years after the deadly terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is poised to sign off on an amendment reversing the ban, which was enacted following a wave or terrorist attacks in 1980s and prevents Libyans from studying these sensitive trades in the United States.This is significant not only in the scope of how long the ban had been in place, but also since our most recent--and well remembered--terrorist attack occurred IN Libya on 09.11.12. But no major media decided it important enough to report on to date. An attack we still don't have reliable answers about. Additionally the major press outlets have been almost as negligent in reporting on the MISSING 11 JET LINERS from... wait for it... Libya. Some have written it off as saying that "authorities are not confirming" (as does Snopes--which qualifies with the term "mostly".) But it took until yesterday for the USAToday to finally mention it. As long as our administration is admitting THEY HAVE NO STRATEGY to combat lethal terror threats, as long as they are still unwilling to answer for their own actions during terror attacks, and as long as they continue to do things in what they hope is the dead of summer, we must and will demand answers to these questions!

NEWS THAT MAKES YOU THINK... 07.28.14Israel and Hamas launched new attacks Sunday in the raging Gaza war, despite going back and forth over proposals for a temporary halt to three weeks of hostilities that have claimed hundreds of lives. After initially rejecting an Israeli offer Saturday for a 24-hour truce, Hamas said Sunday that it had agreed to hold fire ahead of the Eid al-Fitr holiday marking the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. But as Israel's Cabinet met to discuss the offer and the ongoing war, rockets rained down on southern Israel. More@FoxNews Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks. Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama's move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded. Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading option the White House is considering, according to officials who discussed the proposals on condition of anonymity. More@LATimes MONROVIA, Liberia (July 27, 2014) — One of Liberia’s most high-profile doctors has died of Ebola, officials said Sunday, and an American physician was being treated for the deadly virus, highlighting the risks facing health workers trying to combat an outbreak that has killed more than 670 people in West Africa — the largest ever recorded. A second American, a missionary working in the Liberian capital, was also taken ill and was being treated in isolation there, said the pastor of a North Carolina church that sponsored her work. Dr. Samuel Brisbane, a top Liberian health official, was treating Ebola patients at the country's largest hospital, the John F. Kennedy Memorial Medical Center in Monrovia, when he fell ill. He died Saturday, said Tolbert Nyenswah, an assistant health minister. A Ugandan doctor died earlier this month. The American physician, 33-year-old Dr. Kent Brantly, was in Liberia helping to respond to the outbreak that has killed 129 people nationwide when he fell ill, according to the North Carolina-based medical charity, Samaritan's Purse. More@OneNewsNow New Hampshire has been told to stop violating free speech rights of pro-life prayer counselors through a new law that had been passed. The New Hampshire law created a 25-foot zone of censorship outside abortion clinics. Under that law, pro-lifers were not permitted speak to people going in and out and were not allowed to stand on the public street or sidewalks. Abortion clinic employees were exempted from the law, allowing them to encourage women to enter clinics for abortions. Alliance Defending Freedom filed suit and obtained a court order halting the enforcement of the New Hampshire law, according to ADF attorney Matt Bowman. More@OneNewsNow A ‘graveyard’ of more than 70 trains from all over the United States was discovered by a young photographer and urban explorer in a forest in North Carolina. The trains, once filled with people, now sit decaying on winding tracks stretching through the snowy forest, infusing visitors with a certain apocalyptic feel. Among the many abandoned trains discovered and photographed by 24-year-old Johnny Joo are a passenger train from Philadelphia and several disused subway cars. There is also a cracked and broken New York street bus. More@DailyMail The Arizona College and Career Ready Standards, which are based on the Common Core State Standards Initiative, do not mandate that students learn cursive. Nor did Arizona's previous standards — those that AIMS is based on — or the standards of most of the other states that have new standards based on the Common Core. The standards require that students master keyboarding and a form of handwriting — that can be print or cursive, said Kathryn Hrabluk, associate superintendent for the Arizona Department of Education. California, Idaho, Kansas, Massachusetts, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, are among the states that are either debating or have recently mandated that cursive be brought back to the classroom. Arizona has not joined the debate, possibly because many schools here still teach cursive despite the lack of a state requirement. More@AZCentral
