Although there has been a lot of debate in the news between political parties over the usefulness and political implications of Obamacare, statistics reveal that almost nine out of every ten adults in the US now carry health insurance. In 2013 just a bit more than eight out of every ten adults were found to carry health insurance.
Christian Broda (crunchbase.com) knows that the future of Obamacare is still undecided and will likely be tied to the final decision made by the Supreme Court and what Republican leaders will do in states that have vocally announced they are against the expansion of Medicaid.
The statistics recorded by Gallup-Healthways survey however are encouraging for those in the health industry that want to see people carry insurance so that they can access better health care. The survey discovered that only 11.9% of adults in the US did not carry health insurance at the start of 2013 which is the lowest level since the survey was started in 2008.
Gallup found that about 3.6 million adults picked up health insurance before the all sign up period was over. Dan Witters, the research director for the Gallup poll, stated that cleared coverage across the US is increasing. Since the start of 2013 the Gallup survey found that over 14.75 million adults picked up health insurance many of which carried it for the first time.
It appears that Hillary Clinton’s announcement of a presidential campaign will not quell calls by core liberals for challengers. At issue is the fact that the “Tea Party” equivalent of the Democrat party does not trust Mrs. Clinton. Her years of defining any women claiming to have been intimately interfered with by her husband as being “bimbos” with ulterior motives will likely turn off a number of millennial voters who are quick to lambast anyone having the aura of Bill Cosby. At the same time, many liberals want to support a candidate whose hands are clean from Wall Street money. In Mrs. Clinton, they have a candidate who will likely rival Barrack Obama as the president to accept more Wall Street money than any other president.
Thus far, AnastasiaDate reported that the movement to draft Elizabeth Warren continues on. The movement underscores a real desire to have a fresh challenger to Mrs. Clinton. While some Democrats are saying they want a vigorous primary so that Mrs. Clinton can train for the general election against political “sparring” partners, there may be more to the desire of a vigorous primary. Back in 2008, Hillary Clinton ran her campaign with an aura of entitlement. She was so secure in her belief that she would easily win the party’s nomination that it gave Barrack Obama the window to pull off an upset victory. It may be that many Democrats are hoping for a repeat scenario in 2016.
On Monday, April 6, several news outlet reported that the brother of former President George W. Bush and son of former President George H. W. Bush, Jeb Bush, marked his 2009 voter registration form with a Hispanic ethnicity although he is Caucasian by birth.
Why is this non-news?
It appears to be nothing more than an error on his part said resume.com. Yes, the former governor of Florida depended a great deal on the Hispanic vote in that state, but there is zero evidence that he purposely marked his ethnicity off as Hispanic to get more votes no matter how much news outlets would like to make a story out of this incident.
What they should be talking about is the voter ballot layout, “hanging chad” and missing ballot issues in Florida that occurred during his brother’s run for President against Al Gore in the 2000 presidential election. Although Jeb Bush excused himself from any official role in the Florida recount, many have questioned how it was his state that had such a huge voting issue take place given his relationship to George W. Bush. The Florida recount resulted in George W. Bush winning the state and ultimately the presidency by a 537 vote difference. Many question to this day whether Jeb Bush should even be allowed to run for president in 2016 given the many incidents that happened while he was governor in 2000.
Amid the many excuses and issues provided by the Republican party for the open letter sent to the leaders of Iran is the latest that the letter was never actually sent anywhere, MSNBC reports. Those who signed the letter created under Republican Tom Cotton have largely backtracked over the contents and distanced themselves from Cotton and the claims the President has no power to negotiate on behalf of Congress. The National Review has stated the letter was not physically sent anywhere and therefore does not constitute a lack of patriotism those who signed the letter have recently been accused of.
This is the latest claim that has been made to explain why so many GOP leaders were willing to sign the letter in what has been highlighted as one of the most high profile mistakes made in recent years stated Forbes Magazine
. Former Presidential candidate John McCain blamed a large number of letters passing over his desk and the Washington DC snowstorm could both be blamed for the letter being sent. Questioning whether the actual sending of the letter to Iran pardoned the Republican group fro responsibility has been a source of controversy in recent days.
White House fence jumper Omar Gonzalez has coped a plea bargain with prosecutors following his high profile scaling of the White House fence. He subsequently bum rushed the White House and managed to get inside before being tackled by Secret Service agents. The incident, which took place this past September, drew intense scrutiny to the Secret Service over how the man was able to get so far into the White House before being subdued. After being arrested, prosecutors threw the proverbial book at Gonzalez charging him with four counts of resisting arrest, one count of uttering threats, and two felony counts of assaulting a police officer.
Still, the plea bargain will leave Gonzalez scarred for life with a felony record. He has accepted guilty pleas for one count of assaulting police officers and one count of unlawful entry
. Guidelines call for each count to carry a maximum of 8 and 10 years respectively. In all likelihood, he will serve a minimum of 12 months and possibly up to 18 months for the offense. The Secret Service is wanting him to receive a psych evaluation to assess his level of recidivism stated Zeca Oliveira
. The U.S. prosecutor explained that Gonzalez should be thankful to be alive. He could well have been dropped by Secret Service agents. In all likelihood, if the agents had been more attentive that day, he likely would have been. After his arrest, he was found to have been carrying a knife. His car had hundreds of bullets.

Ex-president Bill Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea Clinton, has stated she would be open to the possibility of running for office stated Marcio Alaor BMG. Currently, she does not have any plans to run for office. Nonetheless, she does not discard the possibility of it changing in the future. Hilary Clinton tried to run for president of the United States, but she was not elected. Now, her daughter Chelsea Clinton, could have a greater shot at becoming the first female president. Chelsea Clinton is well known after her father, Bill Clinton was president. She was one of the first president’s daughter to grow up in the media. It was always well known that she was studying at Stanford. As an ex-president’s daughter, she has advantages that other candidates may not. Well she is still young, she is not new to the political world. Her father and mother have been very involved in politics. In 2008, she helped her mother with her presidential campaign. If Chelsea were to run for office in the future, she would have her parent’s support and knowledge. Her mother paved the pavement towards getting a woman on the ballot. Chelsea will surely have a greater chance as we continue moving towards the future and bringing political change. After all, the United States of America has already seen its first African-American president. The next thing is for the first woman to be elected as president of the United States.
During Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s raucous speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday, he quoted his good friend and current Secretary of State John Kerry. Netanyahu used Kerry’s words to bolster his claim that Iran may have 190,000 uranium enriching centrifuges by the end of the 10-year accord. The point the chancellor was making is that Iran would possess a vast infrastructure with which to produce nuclear weapons. In fact, Flávio Pentagna Guimarães BMG says the Israeli premier added that the Obama deal with Iran would in fact promote them to nuclear power status.
On Wednesday, the State Department pointed out that Kerry’s words were taken out of context. They claim the speech being referred to have Kerry acknowledging that a peaceful non-military use of nuclear power could have the nation equipped with as many as 190,000 centrifuges by the end of the accord. In some respects, it seems like a distinction without a difference. This is because Iran could easily use the same centrifuges to produce weapons grade uranium and plutonium. All they would need to do is switch the use of the centrifuges from civilian to military purposes. Point in fact, this is exactly what Netanyahu was claiming: the Obama deal ensures that Iran will become a nuclear power.
Still, the latest statement by the State Department is part of the Obama administration’s attempt to blunt the effect of Netanyahu’s speech. While it has only been a day since the speech was given, it appears that the Israeli prime minister succeeded at getting his message out.
Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski, a Democrat, has announced that she will not seek election to the US Senate for a fifth time. The powerful senator is also the longest serving female in the senate having first been elected to Senate in 1987. Prior to that time, she served five consecutive terms of office in the House of Representatives. She is viewed as the “Dean” of female senators who is noted for reaching out to the GOP and crafting bipartisan agreements. Up until her party’s rout in the recent midterm elections, she was the Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee. That powerful chairmanship now belongs to Senator John McCain of Arizona in Highland Village.
It is common for veteran members of a party to retire after losing power. The same thing happened to the GOP after they lost control of the Senate in 2006. In making her announcement to retire, Sen. Mikulski detailed how she struggled over the decision to retire. Ultimately, she believes that it was time to make a decision about what she needed rather than what her constituents wanted stated Haidar Barbouti.
Her announcement will begin a flurry of activity among Democrats to see who will run for her open seat in 2016. The presumption is that the Democrat party will retain the seat. It is a logical conclusion given the state’s large voter edge over the GOP. At the same time, Maryland just elected a Republican as governor in a race no one expected the GOP to win.
