Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder said Tuesday he will seek permission from the Obama administration to allow all young people in Flint the chance to receive publicly funded health care services for lead exposure amid the city's contaminated drinking water crisis. The White House and federal Department of Health and Human Services did not have an immediate response Tuesday to Snyder's initiative targeting Flint residents up to age 21 through the expansion of Medicaid.
(CNN)The weeks-long armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon suffered two major blows when protest leader Ammon Bundy was arrested and another key figure was killed.
Bundy and several fellow occupiers were pulled over Tuesday on Highway 395, a law enforcement official said. According to The Oregonian, they were headed to the city of John Day, where they planned to participate in a community meeting set up by local residents.
Everyone obeyed orders to surrender except two people: LaVoy Finicum and Bundy's brother, Ryan Bundy, the official told CNN.
Shots were fired, but it's unclear who fired first, the source said. Ryan Bundy was wounded, and Finicum died.
Jindal also rejected federal funding to expand Medicaid. Edwards has pledged to sign an executive order authorizing the expansion of the program on his first day in office. That's a really big deal. Such a move would provide coverage to about 225,000 residents in one of the poorest states in the nation.
Pre-hearing public statements must be filed by tomorrow. GEt ready folks, they are getting ready to ram this turd down our throats. We should be rioting in the streets right now! This horrible agreement will spell the end of the middle class in America and we are taking it like a bunch of stupid sheep.
"Macho man" Vladimir Putin is at it again. State television showed a video of the Russian president Friday throwing members of the national judo team to the ground. After Putin and coach Ezio Gamba took each other to the mat in a practice in Sochi, Putin followed up with a smooth move -- granting the Italian a Russian passport. He praised Gamba for leading Russia's judo team to "surprising results and remarkable success" in the Olympics. Under Gamba, Russia led the judo medal count in the 2012 Olympics with three golds, one silver and one bronze.
