Obama's A La Carte Enforcement
Barack Obama's administration has, yet again, decided to unilaterally delay another part of ObamaCare. The latest delay is for insurers and employers as it relates to capping out-of-pocket expenses. The administration delayed for one year (2015) the requirement that insurers limit out-of-pocket expenses to $6,350 for an individual and $12,700 for a family. This will allow them a grace period to get their computer systems in place or something. Isn't that nice for them? Meanwhile, the rest of you individuals will get no such waiver for an adjustment period. This just adds to the growing list of exemptions and unilateral delays that are making a mockery of ObamaCare and our system of laws. First we have the delay of the employer mandate until after the mid-term election and then we had the decision to essentially exempt Congress and its staffers from having to play by the same rules as average Americans who are forced into ObamaCare exchanges.

Violence In Egypt Escalates

Reports vary, but around 100 people have been killed and countless more injured in the latest crackdown to clear the streets of pro-Morsi and Muslim Brotherhood supporters.

Among those killed are two members of the media: Mick Deane was a cameraman for Sky News out of Great Britain and Habiba Ahmed Abd Elaziz was a reporter with XPress, a United Arab Emirates newspaper. White House spokesman Josh Earnest responded to the violence today that "the 'world is watching' what is happening in Cairo and urged restraint," according to the Associated Press. Wow, talk about bold leadership. Obama's inability to lead has been noticed by Egypt's most powerful man Gen. Abdel Fatah al-Sissi. I encourage you to read this recent interview he gave to the Washington Post where it is clear that Egypt feels Obama has alienated both sides of the mess he helped to create. Republican Senator Ted Cruz recently called Obama's Egypt policy a "stunning diplomatic failure." I would have to agree...more
How Much Does It Cost To Produce New Money?
How much does it cost the taxpayers to produce new money? The answer is 12 cents - that's how much it costs to make one bill. So what happens if something goes wrong in the printing of new money? The taxpayers eat the cost and then pay to have the faulty money destroyed. This is exactly what recently happened when our government tried to roll out a new re-design of the $100 bill. Not only will this cost taxpayers additional money, but in typical government fashion, the bills were supposed to be ready for circulation...in 2011.
