Official Who Oversaw Health Law’s Rollout Is Retiring



The No. 2 official at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, who supervised the troubled rollout of President Obama’s health care law, is retiring, administration officials said Monday.

The official, Michelle Snyder, is the agency’s chief operating officer, in charge of day-to-day activities and the allocation of resources, including budget and personnel.

Technology experts who built the website for the federal insurance exchange, HealthCare.gov, reported to her.

Ms. Snyder is the second administration official to depart since problems with the website frustrated millions of people trying to buy insurance and caused acute political embarrassment to Mr. Obama.

You can run but you cannot hide.

Had the same thought. Bodies who could expose the Oregime have been disappearing or found dead. Will we read about her next?

So if I claim not to be a citizen? I get free medical, & get to vote many times??  

Another fine product compliments of the Government

snyder will get 162% of her current salary because she had been an elite government employee for more then 2 days. she will also be exempted for life, from having to prove, that she has ever been a citizen of the United States.

it is in her elite employment contract with the current administration. what a great country !

I wonder if she will take a short flight on a small airplane.....?

The Government promised her retirement and its hard to fire a Civil Servant, the Union you know.

Nothing like a nation that uses words to wound each other instead of to heal.  Had the insurance company's focused on American's instead of foreign care packages we would not be in this mess.  The ability for an American to get anything but, a lecture on that is not covered.  Mayor Bloomers has spent 650,000,000 to be a Mayor.  Look at the mess he has created for New Yorker's.  Look at the bribe's and bankruptcy in the other city's. Come on out to small town America and gaze at the struggling small medical center's.  New York city will be just as bad as Chicago very soon.  The focus on unemployment by the DC establishment and, the Killing fields that are growing day by day.  Get the poor people to kill each other off and, bloomers and other Mayors like him can beat their chests and declare what a victory.  

With the current administration all you need is a hand to vote with.

No wonder she want's to get the hell out of Dodge!  Too bad she takes way too many of our tax dollars with her in her government pension!  The whole business is an absolute travesty.

Neil Sankey , Love the reference , Might she be related Ms Fuddy ? If so the flight will be a short one . She might get some one to even hold her hand before she meats her maker .

They should are be tried for fraud and treason....!! JAILED...AND RECEIVE NO STINKEN PENSION.....!!

OMG!!! Ruth Bader Ginsburg Voted Best Real-Life Hero At MTV Awards

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Monday was crowned the best real-life hero at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

The 86-year old judge — whose 2015 biopic The Notorious RBG help cement her as a cultural icon among Liberals — beat out tennis star Serena Williams, WWE wrestler Roman Reigns, and comedian Hannah Gadsby to take him the award.

Though it wasn’t a clean sweep for Ginsburg last night.

The RGB documentary lost the “Best Fight” category for “Ruth Bader Ginsburg vs. Inequality” to “Captain Marvel vs. Minn-Erva.”

The justice was absent from the ceremony in Santa Monica, California.

Last December, Ginsburg had surgery to remove cancerous growths on her left lung. She was released from the hospital in New York four days later and recuperated at home.

Earlier this year, Ginsburg missed three days of arguments, the first time that’s happened since she joined the court in 1993. Still, she was allowed to participate using court briefs and transcripts.

Ginsburg has had two previous bouts with cancer, in 1999 and 10 years later.

Flashback: Ruth Bader Ginsburg: A Pregnant Woman Is Not A ‘Mother’

Celebrated liberal U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg argued in an opinion released Tuesday that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.”

“[A] woman who exercises her constitutionally protected right to terminate a pregnancy is not a ‘mother’,” Ginsburg wrote in a footnote, which in turn responded to another footnote in the 20-page concurring opinion by Justice Clarence Thomas in the Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky Inc. case.

As Breitbart News’ legal editor Ken Klukowski reported, the case concerned a law signed by then-Governor (now Vice President) Mike Pence of Indiana in 2016, which required that the remains of an aborted fetus (or baby) be disposed of by cremation or burial. The law also prohibited abortion on the basis of sex, race, or disability alone.

The Court upheld the first part of the law, but declined to consider the selective-abortion ban until more appellate courts had ruled on it.

In his lengthy opinion — which delighted pro-life advocates, and distressed pro-choice activists — Thomas wrote that “this law and other laws like it promote a State’s compelling interest in preventing abortion from becoming a tool of modern-day eugenics.” He traced the racist and eugenicist beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, and warned that the Court would one day need to wrestle with abortion as form of racial discrimination.

In a footnote, Thomas attacked Ginsberg’s dissenting opinion, which argued the Court should not have deferred to the legal standard used by the litigants in the lower courts, but should have subjected the Indiana law to a more difficult standard instead, since it impacted “the right of [a] woman” to an abortion.

Ginsburg cited no legal authority for her claim that a pregnant woman is not a “mother.” The claim that a fetus is not a child is central to pro-choice arguments.
