Here is the story OL linked:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/social-security-treasury-target-hundreds-of-thousands-of-taxpayers-for-parents-old-debts/2014/04/10/74ac8eae-bf4d-11e3-bcec-b71ee10e9bc3_story.html?hpid=z1

This line caught my attention:

The aggressive effort to collect old debts started three years ago — the result of a single sentence tucked into the farm bill lifting the 10-year statute of limitations on old debts to Uncle Sam.

They link to this Farm Bill:

http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/PLAW-110publ246/html/PLAW-110publ246.htm

That includes this language:

Section 14219 -Eliminates the statute of limitations within which a government agency can initiate the collection of an outstanding claim by administrative offset.

The WaPo uses tricky language with their "it started 3 years ago" comment. While it may be true that ot started 3 years ago, the bill was rammed through in 2008.

A Democratic Congress overrode a Bush Presidential veto to stick this upon us.

Ugh..

I meant to post that on the last thread.

Here is the link to the Bill's progress.

She's another Clinton shrew who looks as if she could use a 55 gallon barrel of stewed prunes to improve her disposition. I haven't heard her voice but I don't see her as a type who would appeal to the Lackwitz Sisters or the Gullibles. There's too much Miss Grundy in her appearance for that.

Can Reid be pushed to go nuclear on her? Will he set a precedent which can be used to good effect in '17?

It occurs to me that if someone really wanted to make a statement, stringing up a few media 'senior management' and personalities , who are less protected than government officials, might just get said official's attention. Want to be a government mouthpiece, thems the benefits.

DOOM, via Faber on CNBC: http://www.cnbc.com/id/101573688

(Caution: Annoying auto-video thingy)

"This year, for sure—maybe from a higher diving board—the S&P will drop 20 percent," Faber said, adding: "I think, rather, 30 percent. Who knows. But all I'm saying is that it's not a very good time, right now, to buy stocks."

rse

henry-per our discussion on the previous thread, you and my eldest would get along famously. His reaction to Everyday Math in 3rd was they need to teach base 10 properly so we can move on.

Much like what we see daily from governments at all levels, this will not end where desired but the breakage will be quite real. From foreign policy emboldening tyrants to ed creating belief govt must intervene to healthcare that ceases to be what it was for most of us.

So much humor this morning! I love it. Twitter on fire over Sebelius missing a page of her farewell speech.

Incompetence at every level, it seems.

"missing a page of her farewell speech"

Perhaps that page also contains the code that apparently is necessary to make healthcare.gov a decent website.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

Yeah, TC. I guess she didn't "read over" her prepared speech before she gave it. Hah!

Porchlight

As long as she placed her resignation in her shopping cart, we'll count her as officially resigned even if her speech was incomplete.

The science is settled.

The debate over Obamacare is over. Its the law of the land.


Sure, seems like libs cant really argue in support of any of their insanity and would much prefer folks just shut up and go to the "showers" quietly.

Clarice,

The Heritage numbers do provide a road map but they need to be simplified. Reducing the impact to an estimated annual per capita increased cost to Lackwitz Sisters, Gullibles and Geezers for expansion of Medicaid would have, IMO, the most lasting impact. The Fascists are trying to set up a Gullible v Geezer cage match and it's important to clarify the fact the Geezers are being clipped just as badly as the Gullibles.

Dave (in MA)

cc, feel free. I hardly ever go on Twitter.

rich@gmu

the wit of young Ezra ...

>>>More than 7 million people look to have signed up for health insurance through the exchanges. Millions more have signed up through Medicaid. And millions beyond that have signed up for insurance through their employers.

Healthcare.gov isn't perfect, but it works. We don't yet know how many young people signed up in March, but it's clear that there are enough of them to keep premiums stable in 2015. It's clear that insurers are going to stick with the program in 2015, and compete hard to sign up next year's wave of young, healthy applicants.<<<

...channeling Baghdad Bob.

My advice to the Republicans is to not show up to the conformation hearing.

I remember the cover of Time magazine the week after the '87 crash: "Nothing Will Ever Be The Same Again."

"Atkinson, tries to explain to O'Reilly, how every avenue she investigated, from Benghazi to Obamacare was blocked by CBS senior management"

The same senior management that ok'd a fake Benghazi report resulting in a loss of confidence in the news division...yeah, they're really trying to bottle Benghazi up over there.


Atkinson was known for running around the hallways at CBS news screaming 'Benghazi,Benghazi' but she had absolutely nothing to go on. She had no credible leads,no sources,nothing. And people questioned her state of mind because she was given to fits of crying in her office.

That's a fact.

Fox news looked at her findings and passed on a contract. That's another fact. Anyone here know someone at Fox you should ask them because Ailes decided that she was good for one interview,just one interview trashing liberal media and playing the victim of a conspiracy, but beyond that she had nothing else.

She's a fucking loon.

Yet another example of why Senator Jeff Sessions is my favorite and adopted Senator.

He questions Ms. Burwell and shows her to be just another Obama hack.

But, but, McCain is all for this gal to replace Sebelius.

oddly the administration still doesn't want anyone to know where Obama was during the critical hours and there has been no explanation for the bizarre, and late, Eid al-Fitr Clinton threw at the state department *the next day*.

Howie Kurtz says he has an extensive interview with Atkisson airing Sunday, in which she gives details of her battles with CBS management andthe pushback she got from the administration.

Danube himself? yikes! hope i'm not walking into another food fight.

GMax

Based on that definition of success, I would think General Custer kicked major @ss at Little Big Horn too...

rich@gmu

Attkisson might be covered under a non compete clause in her contract which will prevent her from working as a reporter for some length of time. That seems standard for media.

maryrose

comment deleted. Kudos to Porch on Sibelius comment. Happy Birthday {belated to little porch} I think Sibelius left because she is tired of lying for Obama.

Threadkiller
During the 2008 presidential election season, many Americans were captivated by then-candidate Barack Obama’s promises of hope and change. And some would argue that much of the media were taken in by the promises too. Nearly three years into the Obama presidency, is it fair to say the media were duped?On Sunday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” host Howard Kurtz asked New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman just that question.

I'm sure Pelican Brief can pass her findings onto someone who isn't bound by an imaginary clause or impeded by men in black suits.

Maybe 'Sunny meadow mental institution' will fund her investigation hahahahahah

and yes non compete clauses are standard in media contracts and yes she negotiated with CBS regarding her resignation and her future book.

iirc the Maria Bartiromo had to wait about 6 months before her launch at FBN and she fulfilled all her obligations at CNBC.

--We don't yet know how many young people signed up in March, but it's clear that there are enough of them to keep premiums stable in 2015.--

It takes some doing for one of Ezra's sentences to stand out from the rest for illogic and stupidity but this one makes the grade.

lyle

Damn. The horde fingered Boehner instead. He was right in front of my eyes hiding in plain sight!

NK(withnewsoftware)

Lyle -- Thanks for that link. Bridgewater Capital ought to know, they are in Westport Ct, and are probably where Druken Dan Malloy winds up if he's blasted out as Ct Gov. Ct is a lock to default on pension obligations, so retired state workers will learn what 'guaranteed benefit' pensions really means. Bridgewater also worked a crony deal with Malloy both when he was Mayor of Stamford and Gov to subsidize Bridgewater grabbing a piece of waterfront in Stamford to move there from Westport through Kelo type condemnation. I believe that plan has been derailed through a boatyard owner lawsuit.

derwill

Which one of these two scenarios is the most likely:

1) Sibelius is resigning because to bask in the glorious success and popularity of Obamacare during the coming months would be too much for one human being to bear. Or . . .

2) The shit is really going to hit the fan, and Obama is going to need someone to blame when the 7 million enrollment lie is exposed, and the Obamacare exchange rates soar through the stratosphere, while millions not yet forced onto the exchanges have their insurance cancelled--and the website still doesn't work half the time.

Gallup:

Americans remain more negative than positive toward the Affordable Care Act on various measures, including 43% approval and 54% disapproval of the law itself. A clear majority (64%) say the law has not directly affected them.

That 64% number is going to change, and change big.

It's a fair point, she' taken her cue from Searchlight Harry, no I don't think they will revisit that detail, heck they won't seriously revisit Benghazi why would they want to go back 20 some years.

Of course Maerose (I forget who first called her that) is crossing the streams with the NDN report that says no there is no great wave of deportations,

derwill,

It's a tough choice put I'll take 2). I would also note that Monkeyboy Klein's "are enough of them to keep premiums stable in 2015.--" is a heads up as to the intended object of the prog two eternity hate for May and June.

Well BigGovInsurers may 'hold the line' on 2015 individual ExchangeCare premiums-- IF they: 1. jump rates for employer group plans, and 2. get about $5B in bailout money for 2015. Wait....

Such a clause would be void and unenforceable except for a very short time period.
