A Republican Senate candidate in North Carolina is defending his remarks that some abortion rights groups contemplate infanticide.
Greg Brannon, who is challenging Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan, told a group in November that killing babies who survived abortions could happen in America, according to a report Wednesday in Mother Jones magazine.
The White House says the Central Intelligence Agency's top lawyer gave it a "heads up" before the CIA filed a criminal complaint with the Justice Department against Senate Intelligence Committee staffers earlier this year.
The Senate panel has been investigating the CIA's now-shuttered prison system and harsh interrogation of prisoners.
Last night, Jon Stewart invited Fox News's Judge Andrew Napolitano on the show after ripping him a new one with Larry Wilmore over his revisionist history about Abraham Lincoln and slavery. After interviewing him and not really getting anywhere with him, Jon then treated it like a game show, with three history professors there as the judges to call out Napolitano's revisionist bullshit history.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review cherry-picked data surrounding the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) effect on health care premiums for small businesses, failing to explain that a small rise in prices for some will allow a more fair premium rating policy for all and could save small businesses money in the long term.
The March 11 editorial references a misleading Investor's Business Daily editorial which cites a Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) claim that a number of small businesses will see health care premium increases as a result of the ACA by 2016:
The latest ObamaCare fabrication, exposed by the health system's own numbers cruncher, is that government-directed medical care somehow will reduce small-business premiums by 4 percent -- and by as much as 25 percent in 2016.
But the dream proffered back in 2009 by President Obama has become today's nightmare, as detailed by the actuary for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services: 65 percent of small businesses offering insurance will see their rates go up.
And that will affect about 11 million workers, according to Investor's Business Daily.
Although the actuary's report doesn't say how much rates will rise, studies cited by Investor's Business Daily peg the hike between 12 percent and 20 percent.
