A Texas woman whose four pit bulls entered her neighbors' yard through a hole in the fence and killed their 10-year-old beagle is suing them for $1 million. Emerald White says in her lawsuit filed this week in Galveston County district court that she was "seriously injured" on Oct. 27 trying to stop the attack and retrieve her dogs. She says she suffered "multiple serious bite and scratch-type injuries" and accuses her neighbors of failing to securely confine and restrict their dog, Bailey. White also contends she's feeling "conscious pain and suffering and now suffers also from fear, anxiety and trepidation." read more


Massachusetts' health care reform, RomneyCare, received a Medicaid waiver, with the federal government funding roughly 50% of the cost. To implement its transition to Obamacare, Massachusetts submitted a waiver Amendment request for wide-ranging changes to RomneyCare programs. Buried in the request was the "Commonwealth Kickback" – an estimated $1.1 billion request in Medicaid funding to cover an additional exchange premium subsidy for Massachusetts residents earning less than 300 percent FPL. It would translate into lower out-of-pocket contributions for premiums than residents of any other state.

The Obama Administration and Governor Patrick knew it wouldn't look good if health insurance coverage declined because of Obamacare, particularly in the state touted as the model for the President's law. The clever use of the Medicaid waiver to fund the vast majority of the higher Massachusetts subsidies has only one purpose – to prop up enrollment in the state out of public view.

Chicago election official fired

As a election judge I will point out that you would have to be a complete idiot to not show up for a election. You are elected with in your precinct and are trained by the county board. You get a bunch of official postal mail contacts leading up to the election so I can't think that anyone would be stupid enough to fall for a robo call telling them to sleep in. Then again it is Chicago.
