A huge new paperwork headache for the government could also be jeopardizing coverage for some of the millions of people who just got health insurance under President Barack Obama's law.
A government document provided to The Associated Press indicates that at least 2 million people enrolled for taxpayer-subsidized private health insurance have data discrepancies in their applications that, if unresolved, could affect what they pay for coverage, or even their legal right to benefits.
The final number affected could well be higher. According to the administration the 2 million figure reflects only consumers who signed up through the federally administered HealthCare.gov website and call centers. The government signed up about 5.4 million people, while state-run websites signed up another 2.6 million.
And there are still people making excuses for him. Unbelievable.
***If this is legit, and I think it is, it's really, really disturbing. This is the President of the United States "pumping iron." Think he throws like a girl? Wait'll you see him lift weights.
Done laughing? Okay, moving on...
***Think celebrities couldn't stoop any lower? Well, you were wrong. Real classy.
***Check out the Drudge Report. This Bergdahl thing is really exploding. Nice job, Obama.
***Hillary Clinton on press tour. The Republicans need to keep reminding people that she stood by and let Americans die in Benghazi. Those two have absolutely no shame.
***I like it!
***13-year-old girl climbs Mt. Everest. Wow.
The 13-year-old daughter of poor Indian farmers who became the youngest girl to climb Mount Everest said Wednesday that she "shed joyful tears" at the summit after a grueling climb across difficult terrain and personal fear.
Nepal requires climbers to be at least 16 years old to scale its peaks, but Malavath Poorna said she and a team of Nepalese guides climbed the 29,035-foot mountain on May 25 from the northern side in Tibet. There are no age restrictions in China.
"It was very difficult. Every step is a dangerous step," a smiling Poorna told reporters in New Delhi, describing steep slopes, exposed rocks, deep crevasses and extreme cold that went below minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
***Why we stress eat. Because it tastes good?
***91-year-old woman sets marathon record for age group. Oh. Now I feel like a schmuck.
A new U.S. record was set at the Suja Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon in California on Sunday – by 91-year-old Harriette Thompson.
The nonagenarian now holds the U.S. marathon record for the 90 and above age group, after finishing the 26.2-mile race in 7 hours and 7 minutes.
Thompson is no stranger to running, with Sunday’s race being her 15th marathon. However, she said this race, which she ran alongside her son, was harder than most because of one huge obstacle: She is currently undergoing radiation treatments for squamous cell carcinoma.
Wow. Talk about taking away your excuses.
