Global conflicts continue with no end in sight, however, there are many other disturbing issues in the news today.
FoxNews.com reports that, “A failure of management by the Obama administration led to the disastrous rollout of the ObamaCare website and caused the government to incur tens of millions in additional costs, according to a congressional watchdog report released Wednesday.”
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) concluded that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ failure to establish “effective planning or oversight practices” was to blame for the website’s myriad problems after it was launched. Such as, the administration kept changing the contractors' marching orders for the HealthCare.gov website, creating widespread confusion and adding tens of millions of dollars in costs. Changes were ordered seemingly willy-nilly, including 40 times when government officials did not have the initial authority to incur additional costs.”
While the result was that the government has spent $840 million on Healthcare.gov and its supporting systems, and many of those costs will continue, in 2012 there were only 48 million uninsured people. Which means that almost a billion dollars of taxpayer’s money went to pay the costs of the 14.5% without medical coverage. That's socialism at its best.
Along the same lines, government failures, Chris Stirewalt of FoxNews.com quotes DCCC Chairman Rep. Steve Israel, as saying: “You bet we're going to run on a Congress that is just obsessed with lawsuits, suing the President, talking about impeaching him, instead of solutions for the middle class, talking about jobs and infrastructure. You bet that we're going to ask people to support us based on that contrast.”
Thus, here’s a guy from a Democrat party that’s failed miserably in every single aspect of governance they’ve touched since the incumbent’s been in office. And since they’ve proven unquestionably that they have no leadership capabilities whatsoever, they’re going to turn the Republican’s rightful attempts at fixing the problems Democrats created into a mud-slinging contest. And that's because, they have absolutely no achievements to campaign on.
Which bring us to another left-leaning self-serving blowhard, Fox News host Geraldo Rivera.
According to washingtontimes.com this empty suit ambulance-chaser has “accused conservative blogger Matt Drudge of trying to inflame conservatives and “stir up a civil war,” due to his website’s aggressive coverage of the border crisis.”
“Shame on Drudge,” Mr. Rivera tweeted Wednesday morning. “His authoritative website has gone hysterical on issue of immigrant children. 14 stories like ‘Could Ebola sneak across?’”
However, its certain that even Rivera knows that all Matt Drudge posts on his website are articles and items found on the web. The issues getting the most attention in the news, therefore, are greater in number which means there are more of them than others.
Furthermore, it’s the items themselves that count not who wrote them or political affiliation. Which means that instead of incorrectly chastising Drudge, Rivera ought to wake up and find out why so many news outlets think the incumbent’s on the wrong track regarding illegal immigration. Because it’s the miserable way he’s exacerbated the problem that’s causing all the backlash in the nation.
And now to today’s update on Bill Clinton’s wife.
The Washington Examiner headlined an article, “Secretary of Skate? Hill helped Bill rake in $48 MILL”
The text says, “A joint investigation by the Washington Examiner and the nonprofit watchdog group Judicial Watch found that former President [Bill Clinton] gave 215 speeches and earned $48 million while his wife presided over U.S. foreign policy, raising questions about whether the Clintons fulfilled ethics agreements related to the Clinton Foundation during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.”
At the time, “State Department officials charged with reviewing Bill Clinton’s proposed speeches did not object to a single one. Some of the speeches were delivered in global hotspots and were paid for by entities with business or policy interests in the U.S. The documents also show that in June 2011, the State Department approved a consulting agreement between Bill Clinton and a controversial Clinton Foundation adviser, Doug Band. …The memos approving Mr. Clinton’s speeches were routinely copied to Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton’s senior counsel and chief of staff.”
So, as each day goes by, additional evidence mounts that the driving force behind the Clinton’s always revolves about personal interest first, most often concerning amassing money.
But, in Bill’s wife’s case it’s very understandable. Because aside from using her husband’s position and influence to serve herself and her career, she hasn’t the talent to accomplish anything worthwhile on her own.
That’s it for today folks.
