. . these cuts will not happen, she said. Well, guess what. No one has restored that money. It is bad policy to take away a childs dinner and put it in his lunch, Triada Stampas, director of government relations for the Food Bank, told me.
The plans being terminated because they don’t meet the minimal standards were all plans that insurers introduced after the passage of the ACA. Insurers introduced these plans knowing that they would not meet the standards that would come into effect in 2014. Insurers may not have informed their clients at the time they sold these plans that they would not be available after 2014 because they had designed a plan that did not comply with the ACA. However if the insurers didn’t tell their clients that the new plans would only be available for a short period of time, the blame would seem to rest with the insurance companies, not the ACA. After all, President Obama did not promise people that he would keep insurers from developing new plans that will not comply with the provisions of the ACA. In addition to the new plans that were created that did not comply with the terms of the ACA, there have been complaints that the grandfathering was too strict.

Obamas assurances about our security, in light of the deep reductions he is making in our arsenal, is further compounded by an unhappy fact: Whatever will be left of it, until such time as the planet somehow becomes nuclear-free, is inexorably becoming less and less credible as a deterrent. That is the predictable result of the decades-long failure to modernize the weapons themselves, to postpone the replacement of the missiles, aircraft and submarines that deliver them, and largely to ignore the aging of the deterrents vital industrial base and the highly skilled personnel required to operate it. Concerns about such trends were much in evidence at a second conference concerning the nuclear triad, held last week at the Trident submarine base at Kings Bay, Ga. It featured remarks by a number of senior commanders, legislators and officials with current or previous responsibilities for maintaining and operating our deterrent forces. One senior officer spoke of his son flying today the very same B-52 aircraft he flew as a young pilot 30 years ago. Worse yet, he mused that, given the Pentagons current plans to continue to operate these aircraft until 2040 when they are 80 years old his grandson may do the same.

Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh had a good-natured message for President Barack Obama as the 4-5 defending Super Bowl champions prepare to face Obama’s beloved, 5-4 Chicago Bears on Sunday. “We appreciate the President and the fact that he’s a huge football fan, a huge sports fan,” Harbaugh said Monday. “I’m sure he’ll be watching this game very closely. “And we’ll do our best to disappoint him.” Harbaugh’s sputtering Ravens still have a chance to make good on their coach’s June vow to Obama, “that we have plans to come back next year” during a visit to the White House celebrating their unlikely Super Bowl XLVII run.
“But the United States can help.” A younger generation of U.S. politicians and click here Americans of Cuban ancestry are likely more open to finding “new mechanisms” to bring about change on the island, he said. The U.S. embargo against Cuba is controversial internationally and the United Nations in October voted for the 22nd time to condemn it. Cuban Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodriguez, said the fact that the embargo has been in place for more than half a century is “barbaric.” Obama said before taking office that he wanted to recast long-hostile U.S.-Cuba relations, but his efforts have been a disappointment to the Cuban government, which hoped he would do more to dismantle the embargo.
