I.R.S. Bars Employers From Dumping Workers Into Health Exchanges
By ROBERT PEARMAY 25, 2014
WASHINGTON — Many employers had thought they could shift health costs to the government by sending their employees to a health insurance exchange with a tax-free contribution of cash to help pay premiums, but the Obama administration has squelched the idea in a new ruling. Such arrangements do not satisfy the health care law, the administration said, and employers may be subject to a tax penalty of $100 a day — or $36,500 a year — for each employee who goes into the individual marketplace.
The Department of Veterans Affairs says it will let more veterans obtain health care at private hospitals, VA Secretary Eric Shinseki announced Saturday.
Shinseki, who faces calls to resign amid reports of lengthy waiting lists and preventable deaths in the VA’s healthcare system, said the agency is “increasing the care we acquire in the community through non-VA care,” according to the Associated Press.

Putting that Collins guy aside, what I saw watching everything I could connect to regarding 'Operation American Spring" I could get my hands on was creepier than all get-out!
Those gathered at the Washington Monument for this 'event' did some speechifying, then lined up and marched to the edge of the park, where they did some more speechifying.
Then I saw them straggle all along the length of the National Mall with ardent prostesters in front chanting "IMPEACH... OBAMA!" in such a manner as to leave the older, slower folks behind (I've seen it many times).
If you go 55mph for 8minutes how far did you go?
This stream isn't just some guy in an RV talking to people in DC, It is (at the time of posting) LIVE at the washington Monument where hundreds of people are gathered for the kickoff of Operation American Spring.
(if the feed is stopped, give it a minute to come back on - they're streaming via a smartphone and cut it every so often to conserve power.)

Rand Paul threatens to hold Federal Reserve nominees unless his Fed audit gets a vote
BY JOSEPH LAWLER | MAY 12, 2014 AT 6:07 PM
Sen. Rand Paul threatened Monday to place a hold on three nominees to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors unless his bill to subject the Fed to an audit gets a vote in the Senate.
It's a replay of a maneuver the libertarian Republican and Fed critic attempted last year when current Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen's nomination was under consideration.
Benghazi Commission: The End Of Hillary Clinton’s Political Career
May 10th, 2014
There are very ‘good’ reasons why the House Democrats are making threats of boycotting the recently approved commission on the Benghazi attack. All of them know that President Obama and the Secretary of State at the time, Hillary Clinton, did not properly discharge their duties during the attack.
