‘Sam Stein, Political Editor and White House Correspondent for the Huffington Post, busted Speaker John Boehner for claiming he has nothing to do with the what goes on at the National Republican Congressional Committee, after they fundraised off of the dead in Benghazi’.
‘Boehner claimed he had nothing to do with this, while the NRCC is sending out fundraising letters in his name’.
‘The idea that the Speaker of the House would have nothing to do with fundraising for House Republican candidates is even more absurd when one considers that Boehner has given the NRCC $22 million since 2005′.
‘Boehner gave the NRCC $10.5 million in 2012, and he has given them $5.3 million so far this year’.

‘Reid said Republicans constantly changed their demands’.
“They have held this bill hostage, this energy efficiency bill, as demand after demand has been met but even now they are still seeking a ransom,” Reid said Monday before the vote’.

‘Republican strategist Karl Rove suggested last week that Hillary Clinton suffers from brain damage, according to a new report’.
By the way….Hillary was in the hospital only 3….not 30 days.
“Thirty days in the hospital?” Rove said, according to the report. “And when she reappears, she’s wearing glasses that are only for people who have traumatic brain injury? We need to know what’s up with that.”
‘After an initial trip to the hospital for medical tests, Clinton was later admitted for three days to a hospital in New York City’.

‘To cooperating with Democrats’.

‘One of the next big tests for Obamacare’s long-term viability — matched only perhaps by whether people actually like their new coverage — is what happens to health insurance premiums in 2015’.
‘House Republicans were digging for bad premium news last week, though insurance executives declined to give it to them, and prominent GOPers have sounded the warning bells whenever a headline suggesting skyrocketing prices gets published’.
“Americans will be shocked by higher premiums this November,” teased the Republican National Committee in late April. House Speaker John Boehner’s office tweeted a similar headline the month before. It looks like to be their next big attack on the law’.
‘But inseparable from any news about premiums is an understanding of how Obamacare actually works: People receiving subsidies are “shielded” from price increases, Levitt told TPM in an email’.
‘It’s complicated, like most things related to the law. The tax subsidies are calculated based on a person’s income — ranging from 2 percent to 9.5 percent in 2014’.
‘They cap the dollar amount that a person would pay for a benchmark plan (the second cheapest “silver-level” plan, which covers 70 percent of medical costs on average)’.
‘If somebody buys a more expensive policy, then they are liable for the extra cost; if they buy a cheaper one, then they keep the savings’.
‘But because the price those people are responsible for paying is tied to their incomes, not their premiums, they are mostly protected from any price increases that Republicans are warning about’.
“That means people receiving premium subsidies in the exchanges... will be largely shielded from premium increases because they will pay related to their income, while the government will make up the difference,” Levitt explained’.
‘Remember: About 85 percent of Obamacare’s 8 million enrollees received financial assistance and 85 percent of them signed up for either a silver-level plan or an even cheaper policy’.
‘That suggests the vast majority of them should be mostly unaffected no matter what happens to premiums’.

‘Republicans hate regulations nearly as much as they hate taxation, and according to their Libertarian mindset, the concept of government interference in free market capitalism is tantamount to seizing the one percent’s wealth and assets and giving everything to undocumented immigrants, gays, and people of color’.
‘Missouri is the latest state to attempt to ban residents from purchasing cars from Tesla by inserting new language in an existing bill that forces consumers to buy new cars and trucks only through franchised dealerships’.
‘The legislation, HB 1124 was passed late last year without anti-Tesla language, but Republicans resorted to their now-typical stealth tactic and slipped new language to put a screeching halt to Tesla selling cars in Missouri; a clear violation of Republican libertarian policy against government dictating how free market capitalism is conducted’.
The Missouri senate version of the bill passed without the public’s knowledge and moves to the House for passage without debate because powerful car dealers and the oil industry ordered Republicans to protect their monopoly on pollution-causing vehicles without the public’s knowledge’.
