#4a. HEALTH CARE NEEDS A REHAB IN U.S. DUE TO OBAMACARE

a. Sebelius says no evidence Obamacare impacting jobs - substitute teachers, office clerks, sanitation workers, park inspectors, police dispatchers, prison guards and emergency service personnel,and other public sector workers whose hours were cut say she's lying. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/02/2...

b. Report: Two-thirds of small business employees to see Obamacare premium hikes

Obamacare is once again under fire after federal estimates that health insurance premiums will increase for 11 million people who work for small businesses, according to a report from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). http://dailycaller.com/2014/02/2...

11. GOP lobbyists draft bill to ban gays from playing in the NFL. They sure are worried about sexual orientation. If they would concentrate on JOBS as much as they concentrate on your SEX, we wouldn't be in the mess we are in now! lol
Washington lobbyist Jack Burkman, believes that “if the NFL has no morals and no values, then Congress must find values for it.” Well, isn't that special! More gubmint interference from the Right who are Wrong. Another of his ridiculous comments: "Imagine your son being forced to shower with a gay man. That’s a horrifying prospect for every mom in the country." Does he mean kids will be forced to shower w/NFL men? Talk about morons, this party has them ALL!
