Can Obamacare Get Any Worse? Yep, Here’s Why

in Latest News

It’s no big secret to the average American that Obama’s Affordable Care Act is making health insurance the opposite of affordable. After only a short time, it’s already caused countless headaches for middle class Americans as they search for a reasonable option to cover their healthcare needs.

But brace yourselves, cause it’s about to get a lot worse.

The New York Times reports that major insurance companies are now planning to raise their rates even higher to compensate for the new law’s impact:

Health insurance companies around the country are seeking rate increases of 20 percent to 40 percent or more, saying their new customers under the Affordable Care Act turned out to be sicker than expected. Federal officials say they are determined to see that the requests are scaled back.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans — market leaders in many states — are seeking rate increases that average 23 percent in Illinois, 25 percent in North Carolina, 31 percent in Oklahoma, 36 percent in Tennessee and 54 percent in Minnesota, according to documents posted online by the federal government and state insurance commissioners and interviews with insurance executives.

How disgusting is that? As if Americans didn’t have enough of a struggle to stay healthy and financially viable. Tell us your reaction in the comments.

Dangerous Killer Tries to Start Killing Spree – Here’s Why He Couldn’t Pull the Trigger

in Latest News

An amazing story of second amendment rights played out in Upper Marlboro, Maryland on Monday, July 6 when a woman’s crazed ex-husband attempted to enter her house and “kill everybody inside.”

30-year-old Craig Corbin, Jr. called the would-be victim the night before he tried to break into her house, but when he showed up the following evening to carry out his plan she shot him dead, right on the spot.

Local news station WJLA-TV reports on the incident:

It’s situations like these the indisputably prove the merit of second amendment liberties and self defense carry. If this woman had been unarmed, she and her children likely wouldn’t be alive.

Days Before Anniversary of London Terror Attack This Stunning Sight Appears in Front of Big Ben

in Important Issues/Latest News

On July 7, 2005, an unspeakable tragedy took place in London. A group of muslim extremists coordinated a series of suicide bombings that killed 52 innocent British civilians and injured over 700 others.

And just days before the anniversary of this heinous crime – and less than a month after an Islamic State-inspired attack in Tunisia, which left 30 British tourist dead – a chilling image was captured in London in front of Big Ben.

A man with a child on his shoulders was proudly displaying a black flag bearing marks of the Islamic State by draping it across his back.

But despite this blatant act of support of the Islamic State and its international crimes of terror, the man wasn’t arrested or brought into custody. The Metropolitan Police issued a statement on the matter: “The man was spoken to by officers, with consideration given to relevant legislation, particularly the Public Order Act. The decision was taken by officers at the time that the man was acting within the law. He was not arrested,” the report said. “Wearing, carrying or displaying of an emblem or flag, by itself, is not an offense unless the way in which, or the circumstance in which, the emblem is worn, carried or displayed is such as to cause reasonable suspicion that the person is a supporter or member of a proscribed organization,” the report went on. “While support of and membership of ISIS is unlawful, it is not a criminal offense to advocate the creation of an independent state.” Twitter users weighed in on the matter, opposing police actions strongly.

What do you think? Is this an omen of attacks to come? Should people like this be allowed to display their support of ISIS in such a way? Tell us in the comments.

Clerk’s Office Does the “Unthinkable” in Response to Gay Marriage Ruling

in Latest News

After the so-called historic ruling on same-sex marriage, many conservative Americans feared that they’d be forced to comply with the new rules and dishonor their faith. And while persecution may still be ahead, one group of public servants showed the Supreme Court that they won’t stand for that kind of injustice – by walking out of their jobs and leaving the whole Decatur, TN clerk’s office without any employees!

Local TV station WBIR reports:

Clerk Gwen Pope and employees Sharon Bell and Mickey Butler all said they were resigning because the Supreme Court’s decision to allow same-sex marriages clashed with their religious beliefs. Their last day will be July 14.

Currently, Decatur County’s clerk office will not issue a same-sex license, the employees said.

According to Drew Baker, area representative for the Tennessee Equality Project, Decatur County is the only county in the state that has said it won’t issue same-sex licenses. As of Thursday there have been no requests for a same-sex license in the county.

Pope said the decision to step down wasn’t made to make news.

“It’s kind of sort of like you don’t want to draw attention to yourself for any reason,” Pope said. “That’s not why we’re doing this. Not doing it in any way to draw attention to us. It’s for the glory of God. He’s going to get all the glory.”

What do you think about these brave christians and their decision to hold true to their faith? Don’t you wish more would do the same across the country? Tell us your thoughts in the comments.
