What we’ve learned is that the Obamacare gains in coverage were largely a result of the Medicaid expansion and that most of the gain in private coverage through the government exchanges was offset by a decline in employer-based coverage. In other words, it is likely that most of the people who got coverage through the exchanges were already insured.

He tried to persuade the school’s officials to let him in and was told he was lucky to be on a wait list. The story is a metaphor for immigration policy, he said.

“What we do in immigration policy is decide who we want to admit to the U.S. and who we don’t,” he said.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services on Friday threw open the door to as many as 100,000 Haitians, who will now move into the United States without a visa. Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican, rightly and accurately denounced enabling Haitians awaiting a U.S. visa to enter the country and legally apply for work permits as “an irresponsible overreach of the executive branch’s authority.”

How reducing healthcare spending affects economic growth: 4 things to know

How reducing healthcare spending affects economic growth: 4 things to know: Real gross domestic product fell 2.9 percent at an annual rate during the first quarter of this year, according to a Bureau of Economic Analysis estimate released in June.

One significant driver of that GDP increase was a 1.4 percent drop in real healthcare spending at an annual rate. Although the slowdown in healthcare spending growth can be interpreted as a positive development, it also leads to slower overall economic growth in the short-term, according to a Health Affairs article by Jason Hockenberry, PhD, a health economist and assistant professor at Emory University, and Kenneth Thorpe, PhD, a professor and chair of the Department of Health Policy & Management at Emory University's Rollins School of Public Health.

Here are four things to know about the connection between healthcare spending and GDP.

BBC News - Nazis who left US still received social security

BBC News - Nazis who left US still received social security: The US government has paid dozens of suspected Nazi war criminals millions of dollars in Social Security benefits after forcing them to leave the US.

The payments, funded by taxpayers, were made through a legal loophole, an Associated Press investigation has uncovered. Some are still being paid.

Former guards at Nazi labour camps, where millions died, are among them.

The US justice department says benefits are paid to individuals who renounce US citizenship and leave voluntarily.

But there is anger that public money is being used in this way.

"It's absolutely outrageous that Nazi war criminals are continuing to receive Social Security benefits when they have been outlawed from our country for many, many, many years," said Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney.

HOROWITZ: The Blood on Obama’s Hands | Truth Revolt

HOROWITZ: The Blood on Obama’s Hands | Truth Revolt: When conservatives consider the casualties of Obama’s national security policies, their attention is drawn quite naturally to Benghazi. In this shameful episode, the Obama Administration sacrificed an ambassador and three American heroes to protect a deceptive presidential campaign message in which Obama claimed that the war against al-Qaeda was over and won (“Osama bin Laden is dead, and al-Qaeda is on the run”). The facts are these: Ambassador Chris Stevens and three American heroes were sent into an al-Qaeda stomping ground that the British and other diplomatic consulates had already evacuated; they were denied the security they had requested; they were then left to die during a seven hour fire fight when their compound was attacked, and finally betrayed in death, when Obama and his representatives lied to the world about what had taken place and when he failed to bring their killers to justice as he had mendaciously promised he would.

Following an interview with Democratic Congresswoman Diane DeGette (Colo.) in which the two stated their oppositions to a ban on travel from West Africa and that DeGette was denied the request to have an Ebola hearing in early September, Hayes turned his attention to alleging Republicans of leading the emergence of “a kind-of Ebola trutherism” while “President Obama continues to resist Republicans’s calls for a travel band.” [MP3 audio here; Video below]

Ebola protocols flawed, left U.S. nurses vulnerable, health official says - Washington Times

Ebola protocols flawed, left U.S. nurses vulnerable, health official says - Washington Times: An Obama administration health official said Sunday that U.S. protocols on Ebola failed because they originally were intended for African field hospitals, while the White House came under another round of attacks for its refusal to restrict travel from nations suffering epidemic outbreaks.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the original Centers for Disease Control and Prevention instructions for dealing with the virus were taken from the World Health Organization’s protocol for Africa, where conditions are much different from those in U.S. hospitals.

Mad World NewsThe Liberal Response to White People ‘Rioting’ is Enough to Make You Puke

Mad World NewsThe Liberal Response to White People ‘Rioting’ is Enough to Make You Puke: Every year the town of Keene in New Hampshire tries to set the record for having the most lit jack-o’-lanterns at one time. As a crowd of nearly 70,000 people amassed in the area this year, people started becoming destructive as the town descended into chaos.

According to the Sentinel-Source:

“Hordes of college-aged people overwhelmed the area, traveling en masse from street to street, and testing the manpower of police from across the area, who dressed in riot gear.”

Such behavior is undoubtedly reprehensible, and each and every person who caused destruction of any type should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law, which I’m sure you all would agree. While our counterparts on the left may agree with us there, they used the opportunity to try to contrast our reaction to Keene with the reaction to the rioting in Ferguson, which has been going on for months now.

Ebola in the West: Why some survive, others don't - CNN.com: There's no cure for Ebola. So why have some patients walked away healthy while others in the West died?

Dr. Kent Brantly, Nancy Writebol and Dr. Rick Sacra all contracted the disease while working in Liberia -- and all survived.

Spanish nurse's aide Teresa Romero Ramos got the virus while tending to stricken patients. She too lived.

But like the patients above, Thomas Eric Duncan and Spanish priest Miguel Pajares also received treatment in the West. Yet they died.

While there might not be a single, conclusive answer, a series of factors may contribute to survival.

Mental Health Issues Put 34,500 on New York’s No-Guns List - NYTimes.com: A newly created database of New Yorkers deemed too mentally unstable to carry firearms has grown to roughly 34,500 names, a previously undisclosed figure that has raised concerns among some mental health advocates that too many people have been categorized as dangerous.

The database, established in the aftermath of the mass shooting in 2012 at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., and maintained by the state Division of Criminal Justice Services, is the result of the Safe Act. It is an expansive package of gun control measures pushed through by the administration of Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo. The law, better known for its ban on assault weapons, compels licensed mental health professionals in New York to report to the authorities any patient “likely to engage in conduct that would result in serious harm to self or others.”
