Zeke Emanuel, the mastermind behind the disastrous Obamacare health insurance legislation (Affordable Care Act) appeared as a guest on FOX News Sunday. The host, Chris Wallace, asked Emanuel bluntly if President Obama lied when he told millions of Americans they could keep their doctor.
CHRIS WALLACE: “President Obama famously promised, if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Doesn’t that turn out to be just as false, just as misleading, as his promise about if you like your plan, you can keep your plan? Isn’t it a fact, sir, that a number, most, in fact, of the Obamacare health plans that are being offered on the exchanges exclude a number of doctors and hospitals to lower costs?”
Zeke Emanuel: “The president never said you were going to have unlimited choice of any doctor in the country you want to go to.”
It isn’t every day that a woman loses both of her breasts due to cancer. One patient decided to make her double mastectomy surgery a happy occasion with a dance off in the operating room.

President Obama on Thursday apologized to Americans for lying to them about keeping their insurance policies when his problem-plagued Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare, launched.
“I am sorry that they are finding themselves in this situation based on assurances they got from me,” Obama told NBC News in an exclusive interview at the White House.
Approximately 3.5 million Americans received letters from their insurance companies informing them that their policies would be canceled. Some Americans had the same policies for decades. Now they face higher premiums for coverage they don’t need, such as maternity coverage for men.
“We’ve got to work hard to make sure that they know we hear them and we are going to do everything we can to deal with folks who find themselves in a tough position as a consequence of this,” said Obama whose approval rating plunged to 39 percent this week.
A new type of Botox is so deadly that scientists are withholding the DNA sequence because there is no known antidote.
As you know, the injectable form of Botox (Botulinum toxin A), which is favored by image-conscience women, is derived from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum, which can cause botulism — a rare and potentially deadly paralytic illness in humans.
According to The NY Post, this is the first time the scientific community has withheld the DNA sequence information for Botox out of concern for the public’s safety.
A 4th adult film star has been diagnosed with the virus that causes AIDS, The Washington Times reports.
But rather than halt filming, it’s business as usual in the porn industry.
The 4th adult film star has not been identified, but he is a male who performed in gay films.
“I can confirm that a male performer came to us and indicated that he had become infected with HIV,” Michael Weinstein, president of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, told The Guardian newspaper.
