But that was on confirmation, not committee consideration. Senate Banking Committee Democrats refused to give up their prerogatives, and when Sen. Kim Kardashian Jon Tester , D-Mont., announced Friday that he would become the fourth committee Democrats to oppose Summers, the die was cast. There are no "obstructionist" Republican fingerprints on the conspicuous and power-depleting defeats for Obama. He never sought a vote on Syria and therefore was not humiliated. The same is true for Summers. <br>More: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57603631/obamas-second-term-slump-syria-and-summers/
A spokeswoman for the clinic tells Fox News the clinic is being forced to cut back to prepare for increased costs and decreased revenue under the health care reform law. These changes will include offering early retirement to approximately 3,000 employees, reducing operational costs, and then layoffs as needed. The clinic says its main priority is to continue to provide a high quality of care during the transition, an attribute that led Obama to tout it in 2009 as an example of what hospitals could be under ObamaCare. In a press conference in July of that year, Obama said the Cleveland Clinic is an example of health care that works well. And part of the reason it works well is because they've set up a system where patient care is the number-one concern, not bureaucracy, what forms have to be filled out, what do we get reimbursed for, Obama said. Those are changes that I think the American people want to see. Now four years later, employees at Kim Kardashian the clinic say they are worried they wont be able to provide patients care at all anymore if they are laid off. It absolutely concerns me, employee Joanne Lyons told Fox 8. <br>More: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/09/19/ohio-clinic-touted-by-obama-in-health-care-reform-speech-slashes-budget-due-to/
Ohio clinic touted by Obama slashes budget due to ObamaCare
Obama, speaking to his Export Council from the White House, praised the growth in exports and said it shows that Made in America means something and has provided a boost to our domestic economy and has reminded the world just how competitive we are. Through July, the most recent trade data available, exports had grown 51% since the president took office. Thats far behind the 75% advance needed at that point to meet to double exports before the end of next year. U.S. exports were roughly on pace to make the goal through September 2011 because sales of products abroad grew steadily as much of the world pulled out of recession. The gains, however, leveled off the past two years, likely reflecting a stagnant European economy and slowdown in other markets, including China. The global economy has shown signs of perking up recently, which should bolster U.S. shipments, but its highly unlikely exports could accelerate fast enough to make up for the lost ground. <br>More: http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2013/09/19/obama-touts-gains-in-exports-amid-slowing-growth/
Will Obama see Iran leader at United Nations?
Michele Bachmann was unabashed in her criticism of Obamacare and the president its named for Thursday night, comparing President Barack Obama with a British tyrant. Hes used to being George III, the Minnesota Republican said of what she described as the presidents refusal to negotiate with Congressional Republicans over the continuing resolution to fund the government. George III was king of England during the American Revolution. Bachmann was debating the topics of Obamacare and the Republican plan to defund it on CNNs Crossfire with Kim Kardashian Rep. Charles Rangel, D-New York. In a heated exchange, the two displayed some of the fierce contention consuming Congress over the looming federal shutdown threat. Bachmann continually argued that neither she nor Republicans have any interest in shutting down the government, only in defunding Obamacare by tying it in with a continuing resolution to fund the government. <br>More: http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/09/19/michele-bachmann-obama-used-to-being-george-iii/
Obama Takes on Coal With First-Ever Carbon Limits
The proposal would help reshape where Americans get electricity, away from a coal-dependent past into a future fired by cleaner sources of energy. It's also a key step in President Barack Obama's global warming plans, because it would help end what he called "the limitless dumping of carbon pollution" from power plants. Although the proposed rule won't immediately affect plants already operating, it eventually would force the government to limit emissions from the existing power plant fleet, which accounts for a third of all U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Obama has given the Environmental Protection Agency until next summer to propose those regulations. The EPA provided The Associated Press with details of the proposal prior to the official announcement, which was expected Friday morning. The public will have a chance to comment on the rule before it becomes final. http://www.savingsdaily.com/post/kim-kardashians-favorite-stretch-mark-fighting-product-revealed-196 <br>More: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/wireStory/obama-takes-coal-carbon-limits-20313553?.tsrc=attcf
