    Republicans say they will kill a provision in their new ObamaCare replacement bill that would have exempted members of Congress and their staffs from some of its effects.

    An amendment to the American Health Care Act intended to win over conservatives would allow states to apply for waivers for certain ObamaCare provisions — but it wouldn’t apply to Congress.

    Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-N.J.), an author of the new language, said he is working with leadership to remove the exemption.

    “That’ll be fixed,” he said. “That was written in to comply with some Senate rules to make sure it’s just a budget vote. … Leadership has already committed that we will have a stand-alone bill that corrects that. Congress, my staff, we’re on the Affordable Care Act exchange. We need to live by the same rules as everyone else, period. And I will make sure that is fixed before a vote.”

    • they call me sweetheart says:

      Let me tell you something, Rep. MacArthur – I live, breathe and am a life-long resident and tax-paying (yuge taxpayer of Passaic Co.) and if you don’t repeal it – it makes no difference. As long as “Government” determines insurance mandates, vis-a-vis any other name (essential services, pre-existing compliance, etc.) there will not be “affordable” in “health care.”

      Get the government the hell out of it. Allow direct doctor-to-patient care.

      Get the government OUT OF where it has NO right to be.

      Lord, hear my prayer, Amen.

        Amen sweetheart, my prayer also. While I am no fan of the elitist congress being exempt, that is the least of the issues and a silly distraction. The REAL issue is government inserting itself in our most personal decisions. GET OUT OF THE EXAM ROOM.

    * wait until we find out Fake 44 arranged to take some to US on his way out the door *

    The evolution of the list is a window on the international effort to stop the flow of jihadists to Syria and a reflection of how those efforts initially lagged behind the flood of foreign fighters.

    The number of Australians on the list grew from just 90 in 2014, with more than 180 added in 2015 and more than 150 added last year, according to a senior Turkish official who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss intelligence-related matters.

    As a result of the list, Turkey has deported 21 suspected Australian foreign fighters over the past two years, the official said.

    Around half of them were sent back to Australia, but the rest were sent to other countries, underlining concern about the geographic spread of Australia’s suspected jihadists.

    Most were deported in 2015 as Australian Government efforts to stop would-be fighters from travelling, including cancelling their passports, were still ramping up.

    The Seattle City Council unanimously approved a resolution Monday allowing city employees to take an unpaid day off to participate in May Day demonstrations.

    But, one Council member is still suggesting protestors take it up a notch.

    “I’m not saying no to any non-violent action,” Kshama Sawant said last month, noting that on May Day “we will need disruptive actions like shutting down airports, like shutting down highways.”

      Sawant has been calling for Seattle Freeways to be closed down since the BLM protests. Now she’s added SeaTac Airport.

      Another great example of Dems gone bonkers, and apparently not noticing how insane they sound to normal Americans. And what a PROBLEM they might be to people’s daily lives.

      It’s getting so bad out there that at this point it wouldn’t surprise me if Seattle area went Repub. Life’s getting tough for sane peeps out there.

    So many real news stories that much of the puff pieces finding fault with the first 100 days have been knocked off the front page. Many accomplishments to list for the first 100 days (esp considering all POTUS is up against) but off course they were twisting and fake newsing their way to a negative narrative for the 100 day mark. I am sure we will see more but not as much as they want as simply short on space and time due to real news and real accomplishments at such a rapid pace!

    In fact, the U.S. Justice Department has been actively prosecuting two other Abedin family members – for conspiracy, wire fraud and securities fraud – and she along with the State Department, where she previously worked for Clinton, are mentioned in the federal case, court records show.
    Other documents reveal the same allegedly crooked kin solicited Abedin for help at State in a deal that netted more than $1.2 million in federal grants.

    Records show that her first cousin, Omar Amanat, is under federal indictment for cheating investors in Kit Digital Inc. of millions of dollars between 2009 and 2012, forcing the tech start-up to go bankrupt in 2013. He has been placed under house arrest as he awaits trial, which is scheduled for Oct. 2.

    Another Abedin cousin, Irfan Amanat, is under indictment in the same case. He was arrested in December after returning to the U.S. from the United Arab Emirates.

    Prosecutors say Omar Amanat illegally diverted millions of dollars from investments in Kit Digital “for his personal use,” including “luxury properties in Manhattan.” He “never disclosed these misappropriations to investors,” who were misled about the value of the company by false balance sheets. He has pleaded not guilty.
