  • Arizona Obamacare Plan To Jump By 116 Percent When Premiums Go Up Next Year

    CBS ^ | 10/25/16
    Arizona will be hit the hardest whenObamacare premiums go up next year. The Department of Health and Human Services revealed Monday that premiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, and that about 1 in 5 consumers will have plans only from a single insurer to pick from, after major national carriers such as UnitedHealth Group, Humana and Aetna scaled back their roles. However, in Arizona, unsubsidized premiums for a hypothetical 27-year-old buying a benchmark “second-lowest cost silver plan” will jump by 116 percent,...

Judy Miller says objective reporters all agree that Matt Lauer was rude to Hillary and not rude to Trump. She says regarding complaints about unfair coverage, Hillary has a legitimate reason to complain, but Trump does not. Lynn Sweet states Trump has benefited from months of favorable coverage by the media. I had to laugh. She ripped Trump for not holding press conferences.... Then Gregg Jarrett chimed in to agree. He complained that Trump will attack you if you're not cheering for him.

The discounters second-quarter net income fell nearly 10%, though that was better than what most had expected. Sales at stores open at least a year fell 1.1%, reversing seven straight quarters of gains. Target shares were down more than 6% in mid-morning trading Wednesday. The quarter underscores challenges that Target and other retailers face from and shoppers who remain cautious about spending.

But whenever fact checkers look at what Clinton and her opponents are saying during this election cycle, she rates out as the most honest of the bunch.

The Hill: “This has been an exceedingly unpredictable year,” the analyst said. “Although we remain convinced that Hillary Clinton is very vulnerable and would probably lose to most other Republicans, Donald Trump's historic unpopularity with wide swaths of the electorate — women, millennials, independents and Latinos — make him the initial November underdog.”  Colorado, Florida, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin were all shifted from toss-up states to leaning Democratic.

Mattis is the former commander of Central Command, which includes the strife-afflicted conflict zones of the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia, and has developed a reputation among troops as a general...

    Since Trump’s entirely predictable sweep of the liberal Republicans in the Eastern primaries, the conservative as well as liberal media under the banner of “Trump the Inevitable” have been endlessly repeating their wishful thinking that Cruz is officially DOA. Which brings to mind the truly hilarious spoof Cruz himself does on YouTube of the epic scene in “The Princess Bride” in which Billy Crystal as Miracle Max declares the Dread Pirate Roberts only “mostly dead.” But the Dread Pirate didn’t have the unpledged Republican Convention delegates, and Cruz just might. If the media clairvoyants who tally up delegate “projections” would...

There was some talk, which turned out to be more hopeful than realistic, that because of the fact New York was a closed primary with registration rules so restrictive that you had to be registered as a Republican back in October of last year in order to vote in it the circumstances would serve to hold down his vote perhaps even keep him under 50 percent. That didnt happen; with 70 percent of the vote...

    Last November, I spent a week in Kentucky to cover one of the most-loathed Republicans on the ballot that year. Matt Bevin, an ambitious, tea-party-oriented businessman who had challenged Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in a 2014 Senate primary, was now the GOPs gubernatorial standard-bearer in the biggest race in the country. McConnells advisers tried to prevent Bevin from winning a divided primary. After he secured the nomination, Republican insiders openly dismissed his chances of winning the general election; they were exasperated that he never listened to the party establishment for advice. Democrats believed the preelection polls showing their nominee,...

Trump is about to overwhelmingly capture his home state of New York, and is poised to do nearly as well in Pennsylvania. And Trump has the full backing of some crucial parts of conservative media, notably The Drudge Report. And yet theres an increasing desperation...

    The operating assumption for political observers going into the 2016 election has been that Sen. Ted Cruz doesn't stand a chance to win a general election. But now that the odds have increased of him actually being the Republican nominee, it's worth revisiting that assumption. There are no doubt a number of good arguments as to why Cruz would be too polarizing to win a general election, particularly given how the nation's demographic trends favor Democrats. There's a reason why the smart money would be betting against him. But let's entertain an alternate possibility. To start, of all the Republicans,...

    When a political party picks one candidate over another, the party signals to the broader electorate what it represents. If the Republican Party nominates Ted Cruz instead of Donald Trump, it will represent one of the greatest practical and moral victories in the Republican Partys noble history. Cruzs enormous victory in Wisconsin this week makes it more probable than not that Donald Trump falls short of the required 1,237 delegates 50 percent plus one of the 2,472 total delegates to the convention to cinch the nomination on the first ballot. Combined with savvy delegate recruitment and a mounting...

    Sometimes it is amazing what comes out of the mouthpiece of a campaign. Ted Cruz's challenged campaign manager is proclaiming that Trump should drop out if he cannot get over 50% in New York.

    Late last month we learned from the National Enquirer that Ted Cruz has had up to seven different mistresses. Sure the Enquirer isnt the most reliable source, but they did beak the John Edwards sex scandal. Now Ted is going after them for running the story. That begs the question, is it because he is guilty? Now that Ted Cruz seems the only competitor for Donald Trump for the nomination for president, the wheels seem to be falling off the wagon. The Cruz fans weathered the Enquirer story by writing it off as fiction. But when the attorney for the...

    Ted Cruz Declares Wisconsin A Turning Point In The GOP Campaign By Sean Sullivan and Philip Rucker April 5 MILWAUKEE Ted Cruz rolled to a landslide victory Tuesday in Wisconsins hotly contested Republican presidential primary, capitalizing on a difficult stretch for Donald Trump to cut into the front-runners overall delegate lead and deliver a psychological blow to the billionaire mogul. Though the senator from Texas is reviled by many party leaders for his explosive and polarizing brand of politics, Cruz won over establishment Republicans as well as grass-roots conservative activists across this state who had come together in an...
