More than a dozen states that opted to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act have seen enrollments surge way beyond projections, raising concerns that the added costs will strain their budgets when federal aid is scaled back starting in two years.
Some lawmakers warn the price of expanding the health care program for poor and lower-income Americans could mean less money available for other state services, including education.

Thirty states and the District of Columbia have expanded Medicaid, or plan to do so, to include all adults

This man, my local representative in parliament, who I didn't vote for in the last election. He has expressed his way of trying to build growth while not creating more debt in the process.
Mr Corbyn has been in the UK parliament for decades now, thirty two years. He has an interesting foreign policy outlook. I like some of his leftwing views, but I felt tired of the rep. I have never met him.
I have emailed to him in the years gone by, usually about foreign policy, like the UK air campaign in Libya back in 2011.
Swiss banks had been required to have a branch in Germany in order to provide services there, but can now apply for “simplified authorisation” in Germany, Switzerland’s finance department said, after the two countries clarified details of how to implement a cross-border tax agreement struck in 2013.
The agreement had not been fully implemented as Germany kept up pressure on Switzerland over undeclared assets hidden from German finance officials in Swiss accounts, after a deal to levy a withholding tax on German assets held here was struck down by German lawmakers.
A “flying gun” drone capable of hovering in the air and shooting off four rounds of ammunition via a mounted handgun has done a lot more than garner YouTube views: It has spurred federal investigators into action.
The video of the four propeller drone, which was reportedly created by 18-year-old Austin Haughwout of Clinton, Connecticut, has now surpassed 2 million views on YouTube, but when local police picked up on the footage, they decided to investigate. Now they are being joined by officials at the Federal Aviation Administration as well as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
According to the Associated Press, federal officials will “work with its law enforcement partners to determine if there were any violations of criminal statutes.”
The FAA bans the careless or reckless use of model aircraft, but they told AP that so far it doesn’t look like any laws were broken. Police told CNN the drone was fired on private property, at Haughwout’s home. Continued...

Attention Wisconsin drivers: Consider removing that air freshener from your rear view mirror, or that GPS unit from your dash or windshield. The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that a police officer could pull you over if the officer felt it was obstructing your view.
In a case out of Walworth County, the court reversed the Court of Appeals, and held that a mistaken understanding of the law didn't invalidate the traffic stop a police officer made that led to a conviction for marijuana possession.
Rather, it's enough that an officer has "a reasonable suspicion" of a violation, even if its based on an officer's statutory misinterpretation.
Writing for the 5-2 majority, Justice David Prosser tried to assure that the ruling was not an interpretation
In this Buzzsaw interview (below), filmmaker Sean Stone interviews Tammi Stefano, the Executive Director of The National Safe Child Coalition (NSCC), and exposes much of the corruption happening within Child Protection Services and Family Courts. This might be one of the few interviews currently available on the Internet that gives as much information on the child sex trafficking business that exists in LA County, and across the nation. Tammi Stefano reveals some very shocking information about the child and human trafficking business currently operating in the United States, which is a huge illegal business that brings in more money than the illegal drug trade and illegal arms trade combined.
Tammi Stefano has spent over two decades on front lines fighting for
The number of Americans carrying concealed firearms has exploded in recent years, and contrary to the narratives and fearmongering peddled by anti-gun-rights activists, the sky did not fall. In fact, according to the most recent data, not only did the sky not fall, murder rates and violent crime over the same period have plunged dramatically — demolishing the claims of gun-control proponents, while bolstering the pragmatic case for even broader proliferation of public firearms ownership.
Of course, as The New American has reported for years, experts who study the issue have long known that more guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens is correlated with less violent crime and murder. A report released last week by the Crime Prevention Research Center confirms that fact yet

Chicago Investigator Fired For Finding Cops At Fault In Deadly Police Brutality Cases
The City of Chicago just fired an investigator after he determined that police were at fault in several fatal shootings.
Lorenzo Davis, 65, found that several civilian shootings – including those which resulted in death – were completely unjustified.
After issuing these reports, he was fired. He says that’s because he resisted direct orders to fabricate and reverse those findings, according to internal records of his agency obtained by local Chicago WBEZ.

In the second video released today by the Center for Medical Progress, yet another senior medical adviser to Planned Parenthood of America appears to negotiate the price of selling baby body parts to actors playing entrepreneurs from a start-up biotech firm.
Dr. Mary Gatter, President of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Director’s Council, is asked, “What would you expect for intact tissue?”
Gatter starts to haggle immediately, “Why don’t you start by telling me what you’re used to paying?”
When pushed for a number, Gatter says, “Well, you know in negotiations the person who throws out the figure first is at a loss, right? So…”
