Enrollment in Medicaid, children's health program grows by 3 million - POLITICO.com Print View

Enrollment in Medicaid, children's health program grows by 3 million - POLITICO.com Print View: "About 3 million more people enrolled in Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program from October through February, an increase tied to the opening of the Obamacare insurance marketplaces.

Figures released Friday by the Obama administration show that over that five-month period, a total of 11.7 million people were determined eligible for the two programs. Both numbers could rise further once all states finish reporting their data, officials said.

The uptake in Medicaid enrollment was especially driven by states that have expanded the program under the health care law, according to the new figures. Expansion states recorded an 8.3 percent jump in enrollment, while states that did not expand had a 1.6 percent increase."

That hasn't always been the case.  Nearly a decade ago, Clevenger wrote a letter to the editor of the Aurora Advertiser.

"I am a friend of Frazier Miller helping to spread his warnings," wrote Clevenger. "The Jew-run medical industry has succeeded in destroying the United State's workforce."

The letter continued.

"Made a few Jews rich by killin' us off.""

Obama Signs Ted Cruz's Iran Bill - Business Insider: "President Barack Obama on Friday signed into law a bill that was sponsored by Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and will effectively bar Iran's proposed United Nations ambassador from entering the United States. Though he signed the bill, Obama said he will use discretion in enforcing the law.

[...] The law prevents terrorists or others the President deems to be a national security threat to the United States from entering the country as ambassadors to the United Nations. Cruz formed the bill in response to Iran's selection of Hamid Aboutalebi as its ambassador to the U.N. Aboutalebi was allegedly involved in the 1979 Iran hostage crisis."
