Obama’s IRS ‘misled’ Obamacare Customers

The Obama administration “misled” Americans into thinking signing up for Obamacare would be cheaper than it really was, according to an inspector general’s report Thursday that said the IRS dramatically understated the actual cost of enrolling. IRS officials sent the letters to try to prod Americans to comply with the 2010 health law’s “individual mandate” that penalizes them for not holding coverage. But as part of the letters, the IRS said most people could find plans for $75 a month or less once government subsidies were figured in. That was untrue — in fact, the average cost was more than twice that … Read More

Clinton Pay For Play Scandal – Huma’s Emails

Former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin used her personal email account to transmit classified documents and coordinate favors for Clinton donors, according to emails obtained by Judicial Watch Wednesday.

US Created 209,000 Jobs in July, Crushing Expectations

Job creation in July kept up its sizzling June pace, with nonfarm payrolls growing by 209,000 while the unemployment rate slid down to 4.3%. Economists had been expecting payroll growth of 180,000 and a slight decline in unemployment. Last month, the economy added 231,000 jobs.

June was revised up to 231,000 from 222,000, which means that the jobs market was even stronger than expected. … Read More

McCain Wants Congress to Pass ‘Gang of Eight’ Amnesty Bill When He Returns

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) wants Congress to pass the Gang of Eight’s comprehensive amnesty bill when he returns to the Senate after getting treatments for brain cancer.

Senate Moves on from Obamacare with Bipartisan Drug Bills

The Senate unanimously approved bills Thursday that would let dying patients try medicines that haven’t won full regulatory approval and inform doctors if a patient is a recovering drug addict, so they can prescribe safe treatment. Both measures passed before the Senate voted overwhelmingly to extend the Food and Drug Administration’s ability to charge fees on companies that submit their products for pre-market review. Taken together, the bills offered a bipartisan reset on health legislation after a bruising debate over Obamacare that stalled out last week when Republicans couldn’t muster enough troops to pass their bill through the Senate. The FDA fee bill was considered must-pass … Read More
