Medicare, Obamacare and the VA All Have the Same Fatal Flaw

What is common to Medicare, Obamacare and the VA is that they are all run by government rather than for-profit private industry. But who is really in charge of a government-run entity such as Medicare? If, for example, ongoing Medicare fraud was suddenly discovered in Omaha, Nebraska, who ultimately should bear the blame? The answer to this question literally boggles the mind. Those REALLY in charge of Medicare are: 1) the CMS (Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services), the agency that actually runs Medicare; 2) the Department of Health and Human Services that oversees the CMS; 3) the OMB (Office of Management and Budget) that approved Omaha's fraudulent funding requests; 4) the President of the United States who signed the funding bill allocating unnecessary money for Omaha, the respective Appropriations Committees of both; 5) the U.S. Senate; 6) the U.S. House of Representatives that approved that amount for Omaha; 7) the entire Senate; and 8) the entire House that voted those sums for Omaha into law.

Sterling and His $2 Billion Deal

Sterling gave his consent to a deal that was negotiated by his wife, Shelly Sterling, to sell the team. [more...]

Ex-New York City Teachers Threaten to Sue to Get Retroactive Raises

New York City municipal unions waited to negotiate new contracts until Bill de Blasio was mayor and with good reason: they knew the Progressive Democrat would give them whatever they wanted. And did he ever, awarding retroactive raises for three previous years to the city's teachers. But the mayor didn't include retroactive raises for teachers who resigned over the past few years, and they are suing to get what they consider their piece of the pie. [more...]

Bergdahl, the VA Scandal and Hillary

On this week's POLITICAL INSIDERS, we discussed: How successful has the Obama White House been at diverting attention from the VA scandal by bringing home Bowe Bergdahl? Or did this cynical plan backfire as they replaced one shocking scandal with an even more stunning one? Has their dissembling and incompetence finally broken some Congressional Democrats away from the Obama Administration? Can Hillary - whose book launch this week is tantamount to announcing her 2016 candidacy - separate herself from Team Obama?  Watch our shows here: Sunday Part 1, Part 2, Part 3. [more...]
