The Federal Trade Commission has issued an alert warning that unscrupulous individuals are using the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) to obtain personal financial information from consumers. According to the alert, these "scam artists want your information to commit identity theft, charge your existing credit cards, debit your checking account, open new credit card, checking, or savings accounts, write fraudulent checks, or take out loans in your name. " Shameful behavior for sure, but not all that different from that of the architects of the law itself.

The former Speaker of the House says the plan to "fundamentally change the trajectory of America" would most likely take a President Gingrich two full terms to implement and includes new choices in how Americans would buy health insurance, pay their income taxes and save for retirement.

He also promised to veto any debt-reduction legislation that cuts benefits while failing to include higher taxes on the wealthy.

Congratulations to Republican Bob Turner who broke the Democratic Party's 88 year hold on the House seat most recently held by disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-New York). With 70 percent of precincts reporting, Mr. Turner won 53 percent of the vote compared to Democrat David Weprin's 47 percent. That was enough for the Associated Press to declare Mr. Turner the winner.

If there was any question that next month's special election in New York's 9th congressional district will be a referendum on President Barack Obama's policies, yesterday's New York Times endorsement removes all doubt. Not surprisingly, the left-leaning paper's editorial board has chosen to support Democrat David Weprin in the September 13 contest to replace disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner. But the reasons given for that support have little to do with the candidate's qualifications and everything to do with the Obama agenda.
