Did you know that "the Democrats impeached George W. Bush"?

I just heard it on Rush Limbaugh's show.

"The Democrats impeached George W. Bush. They did. Dennis Kucinich filed articles of impeachment"

See, that's impeachment.

Walgreens folds to inversion pressure (staying US Co. ) check out their language

http://mobile.nytimes.com/blogs/dealbook/2014/08/06/walgreen-to-pay-5-27-billion-plus-shares-for-alliance-boots/


Walgreen said that it extensively evaluated doing an inversion, including the financial benefits and the public reaction, given the company’s “unique role as an iconic American consumer retail company with a major portion of its revenues derived from government-funded reimbursement programs.”

“The company concluded it was not in the best long-term interest of our shareholders to attempt to re-domicile outside the U.S,” Gregory D. Wasson, Walgreen’s president and chief executive, said in a news release.

But he said that the full takeover of Alliance Boots “was in the best interest of our shareholders, and with this decision, we are now moving forward on an accelerated basis to create the global leader in pharmacy-led health and well-being.”

The NFL - Ray Rice and Terrelle Pryor

The NFL yesterday suspended Ray Rice for two games for assaulting a woman.

Terrelle Pryor was involved in a scandal IN COLLEGE while at Ohio State University* involving trading football gear for tattoos.

*full disclosure I am a born in Ohio - full fledged Buckeye fan. This is not in anyway meant to defend Pryor or THE Ohio State University in anyway about that matter.

How many games did the NFL suspend Terrelle Pryor for his non-violent actions while IN COLLEGE BEFORE HAVING ENTERED THE LEAGUE or even being ELIGIBLE TO BE DRAFTED?

Obama motorcade reportedly prevents woman in labor from crossing street (Fox News)

The Blaze (Glenn Beck's loony world) to Faux News

A woman in labor reportedly was blocked from crossing the street to get to a Los Angeles hospital Wednesday because of President Obama's motorcade.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the woman was trying to get to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and was stopped by authorities because Obama's motorcade was going to come through the area.

Cedars-Sinai medical staff reportedly came to help the woman while she sat on a bus bench waiting to get to the hospital, witnesses told the Times.

The story was first reported by The Blaze. Witness Carrie Clifford told the website that the woman had to wait at least 30 minutes to walk just a few hundred feet to the hospital.

Halbig v. Sebelius - let's meet the plaintiffs

Indeed, one of the plaintiffs was also a plaintiff in the lawsuit filed by the National Federation of Independent Businesses challenging the legality of the individual mandate, an argument rejected by the Supreme Court. The other plaintiffs are also conservative operatives, including the lead plaintiff, Jacqueline Halbig, who was a senior policy adviser to the Department of Health and Human Services under George W. Bush. (She's also been the source of a host of conservative rhetoric about "baby death panels" in the ACA.) The intellectual force behind the suit,* Michael Cannon, is a health care expert at the libertarian Cato Institute who has spent the last few years urging states to refuse to set up insurance exchanges as a means to sabotage Obamacare.

Halbig v. Sebelius is about one sentence in the law

The argument goes something like this: When Congress wrote the ACA, it said that premium subsidies would be available for certain qualifying citizens who were "enrolled through an Exchange established by the State." (Emphasis added.) The law doesn't say that those subsidies are available to people in the 34 states that declined to set up exchanges, where residents must utilize the now-infamously buggy Healthcare.gov, the federal

The complaint is pretty convoluted, and it's clearly a political attack. Indeed, one of the plaintiffs was also a plaintiff in the lawsuit filed by the National Federation of Independent Businesses challenging the legality of the individual mandate, an argument rejected by the Supreme Court. The other plaintiffs are also conservative operatives, including the lead plaintiff, Jacqueline Halbig, who was a senior policy adviser to the Department of Health and Human Services under George W. Bush. (She's also been the source of a host of conservative rhetoric about "baby death panels" in the ACA.) The intellectual force behind the suit,* Michael Cannon, is a health care expert at the libertarian Cato Institute who has spent the last few years urging states to refuse to set up insurance exchanges as a means to sabotage Obamacare.

Timothy Jost, a law professor at Washington and Lee University, has said that Congress essentially fixed the drafting error in another piece of legislation requiring the federal exchange to report information to the IRS and to promulgate regulations around Obamacare. The Congressional Budget Office has also treated the law as if the subsidies are available on the federal exchange.
