Megyn Kelly Tears Into Dem Guest over Obamacare They ‘Lied to Our Faces’!
Moments after showing new video of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber calling American voters “stupid,” Megyn Kelly went off on the “deception” and “fraud” that went in to pushing Obamacare in a clash with Democratic pollster Bernard Whitman.
Kelly said that Gruber’s comments basically amount to “It’s all BS! We had to do it to get this law passed!” Whitman argued that while Gruber might be expert in his field, “he’s a political idiot.” He argued that the Affordable Care Act has actually done a lot of what what promised.
But Kelly wouldn’t let up, hammering away at the lack of transparency and burying her head in her hands when Whitman told her “everyone knew what they were getting” during the public debate over the health care law.
Kelly cried, “They rely on people that lie to our faces!”
What if I Die Without Making a Will?
Death is such a taboo subject that it’s not surprising that over 70% of us risk bequeathing costly confusion to our nearest and dearest by not making a Will. Most people at some time in their lives consider putting their affairs in order, but the thought often passes without further action. There are of course the normal excuses of ‘we’re too busy’, or ‘I don’t plan on dying just yet!’ But we find for many people, the reason they had not got around to making a Will, is because they were not aware of the severe consequences to their family if anything was to happen to them, as they had just assumed that everything would be OK.
However, if you care about who inherits your estate, and you want everything to be ‘OK’, then you need an up to date professionally drafted Will.
Laws of Intestacy
This is because if you die without a Will, then the Government will decide who will inherit your estate in accordance with the Laws of Intestacy. These were drawn up in the 1920′s, and are now somewhat out of date! However, these laws state that your spouse may end up sharing your estate with your children or parents. Or if you are an unmarried couple, then your partner may not get anything.
If you do not make provision for young children, then the authorities will decide who is best placed to look after them, which may be hugely upsetting and disruptive. It can also mean that your partner (if you are not married) does not automatically become guardian of young children, even though they may be the father.
If you die without making a Will, your ex-spouse, may be entitled to claim part or all of your estate in certain circumstances! Even if your ex-spouse cannot make a claim, your children’s trust fund may fall under their control!
The Point of a Will
A Will only gives away what has not been taken from you or what you have not spent. Understandably, people have reservations regarding this delicate matter, but the process need not turn out to be as upsetting and difficult as you might think. In fact, having made a Will gives you a feeling that you have done everything correctly and provides inner warmth that only comes in the knowledge that you have tied up all those loose ends.
But making sure that you have a Will is not enough; it has to be the right type of Will – one that is professionally drafted to take into account your wishes, and your personal and financial circumstances.
The correct Will can allow you to:
▪ Specify whom you wish to inherit your estate, in what order and in what proportions so that you have comfort in the knowledge that your wishes will be carried out.
▪ Make specific legacies to family or friends or gifts to your favourite charities.
▪ Appoint suitable guardians for young children rather than leaving the decision to the Courts.
▪ Set up maintenance trusts for children to protect their inheritance until an age specified by you.
▪ Ensure the inheritance of your children or other beneficiaries should the survivor re-marry.
▪ Protect your share of the property from having to be sold to pay for the survivors future care fees, thus still having assets to leave to your family.
▪ Avoid paying 40% Inheritance Tax on your estate, so giving more to your chosen beneficiaries rather than the Government.
Amending an Existing Will
If you already have a Will, it is recommended that you review it every 2 to 5 years. Sometimes your wishes may not have changed, but the value of your assets and the law may have. As such it is very important to ensure that your Will does exactly what you want it to do; that it protects your assets and investments, and most importantly that you have taken advantage of various areas of flexibility within the law of estate planning.
Obamacare is a purely political law and a power grab without your best interest or care in heart. President Obama knowingly and willingly lied to the American people when he said that you will be able to keep our plans and coverage. Mark talks about why healthcare isn’t a right and if the government deems it a right, the problems that it will cause. Mark says if health care is a right then you should demand whatever care you desire, and whatever prescription drugs you need, and to be able to pay whatever premium costs you want. This is only the beginning of just how disastrous Obamacare and the socialization of our health care system will be. Mark says that we must hold accountable our politicians that lied to us about what this plan would do, including the Republican’s that sold us out for their own benefits. Finally, Todd Hoffman of the Discovery Channel’s Gold Rush calls in about the hit television show and it’s new season.

The Mark Levin Show
On Friday, the group American Commitment uploaded a video to YouTube of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber telling a group of healthcare economists in 2013 that the “lack of transparency” regarding the bill’s contents and “the stupidity of the American voter” were critical to its passage through Congress in 2010.
Since the video was uploaded, the major English and Spanish broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, NBC, Univision, and Telemundo have chosen not to cover this devastating video on either their morning or evening newscasts. During the day on Monday alone, Gruber’s comments were covered on cable news channels CNN and the Fox News Channel (FNC) in addition to news sites ranging from The Daily Signal to Forbes to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

FULL: http://thecount Imagine that! SHOCK VIDEO! ObamaCare Architect Admits The Law Passed Only Because America Was Deceived “…call it the stupidity of the American voter…
“Has Obama administration adviser Jonathan Gruber inadvertently doomed Obamacare? Or at least handed Republicans a weapon with which to attack the sweeping federal health care program?
He’s probably accomplished the latter more than the former. But by referring to the “stupidity of the American voter” as a reason the law was able to pass, the MIT professor and Affordable Care Act (ACA) architect has outraged Republicans, caused Democrats to face-palm, and generally lived up to the conservative stereotype of a tone-deaf academic elitist.
First, some background: Professor Gruber is an economist with lots of experience in designing public health programs. For instance, he was a key designer of the 2006 Massachusetts state health plan signed into law by then-Gov. Mitt Romney (R).“* Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola (TYT University), Dave Rubin (Rubin Report) and Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) break it down.

“The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to take up a new challenge to the Affordable Care Act, a move that will again thrust the law into a high-profile battle before the high court.
The Supreme Court’s move is somewhat surprising, considering there is still no split in the lower, circuit courts. But the high court agreed to hear King v. Burwell, a case in which the Fourth Circuit court upheld an IRS rule that extends the distribution of health insurance subsidies to states served by the federal insurance marketplace.
The challenge to the law is viewed as having the potential to cripple Obamacare in the 36 states where the federal government provides subsidies for low-income people to buy health insurance.“* Cenk Uygur, Ben Mankiewicz, John Iadarola (TYT University) and RJ Eskow break it down.

Mediating and arbitrating family law disputes is, among other things, emotionally challenging for parties and their attorneys. Although the break up of families as a result of divorce is common, the frequency of divorce is of no consolation to the family members involved. Family members quarreling over a deceased relative’s estate are usually just as emotional and bitter as parties enmeshed in divorce.
Mediating family and estate law cases are very helpful because they each have high emotional content. They always involve dysfunction among and between family members. Divorce cases or family law cases often involve painful child custody issues.
Estate disputes often involve festering relationships among siblings and other relatives that have developed over decades, and it is a good idea to try to resolve these cases prior to trial, because a trial result is only likely to add to the dysfunction.
Family law and estate law disputes have more in common than they are different. Each involves one or more disputes among individuals, rather than individuals vs institutions. What that means, too, is that individuals, or in the case of estates, they have to finance these disputes, and the cost of litigation in each kind of case, whether it’s a divorce or an estate dispute, tends to shrink the assets of a marital community on the one hand, and an estate on the other.
Mediation is arguably of greatest service in facilitating settlement of family law (divorce) and estate disputes. Mediation rather than trial or arbitration has the capacity to allow disputing family members to chart a course toward a level of acceptance and even reconciliation that neither trial nor arbitration can typically achieve.
In addition to having professionally mediated thousands of cases in which parties emotions have run unchecked, I have personally experienced the family fracture of divorce and the contest of an estate dispute. These experiences have informed my approach to mediation and arbitration of family and estate disputes in particular.
Early mediation should be seriously considered in the vast majority of family law or divorce cases. This is especially true if child custody issues are involved. If parents are encouraged by counsel to first focus upon their children’s welfare via an early mediation, not only is such an effort likely to benefit the children themselves, it is also likely to reduce the parents’ stress level at least to an extent. If custody issues are at least temporarily resolved via early divorce mediation, the focus then can turn to compromising financial and other property issues recognizing that analyzing these often does require some time.
Obviously, merely suggesting the above is easier said than done. Attorneys do not always encourage divorcing parties to try to settle early. However, because so many divorces involve incendiary emotions from the outset, it often doesn’t take much to further inflame a party. I have seen marital communities financially ruined and families
irreparably and unnecessarily harmed because of a failure or refusal to try and settle early.
In addition, mediation and arbitration offer divorcing parties a confidentiality that a civil court action does not. A court may seal some aspect of a divorce file but there are certainly no guarantees. It is seldom in any divorcing party’s best interest to air the intimate details of his or her domestic life in public.
Much of the same considerations apply equally to estate disputes with the exception of custody issues. I truly believe that mediation and arbitration have the capacity to do the most good in disputes between family members. However, it is very hard work and requires tireless dedication on the part of the neutral.
