Quotes of the day

Democrats are becoming increasingly alarmed about their midterm election fortunes amid President Obama’s sinking approval ratings, a loss in a special House election in Florida last week, and millions of dollars spent by Republican-aligned groups attacking the new health law.

The combination has led to uncharacteristic criticism of Mr. Obama and bitter complaints that his vaunted political organization has done little to help the party’s vulnerable congressional candidates. …

Interviews with more than two dozen Democratic members of Congress, state party officials and strategists revealed a new urgency about the need to address the party’s prospects. One Democratic lawmaker, who asked not to be identified, said Mr. Obama was becoming “poisonous” to the party’s candidates. At the same time, Democrats are pressing senior aides to Mr. Obama for help from the political network.

***

President Barack Obama and his Democrats face the challenge of limiting fallout from Obamacare and drumming up voter enthusiasm in the November congressional elections, problem areas exposed by the loss of a Florida candidate who had led in the polls.

The defeat of Democrat Alex Sink by Republican David Jolly in a special election last Tuesday has raised anxiety levels for Democrats as they struggle to hold on to control of the Senate in November and pick up seats in the Republican-held House of Representatives.

Paramount on the Democrats’ list of concerns about November is the need to ensure that voters feel motivated to go to the polls. Obama won handily in presidential elections in 2008 and 2012, but Democrats lost control of the House in the 2010 midterm elections, when his name was not on the ballot. …

A focus simply on turnout, however, could distract party leaders from recognizing the dangers presented by the president’s healthcare law and, with his approval rating mired in the mid-40s, his relative unpopularity.

***

Democratic strategist Paul Begala has some advice for Dems who are worried about their “messaging” on Obamacare after the special election loss: Stop being so damn defensive about the law and show people it’s worth fighting for, already.

“We should flip the wording of how we talk about Obamacare,” Begala told me today. “Open on offense, instead of on defense.”

Begala’s advice is rooted in a clear eyed assessment of the real Obamacare problem Dems face. It isn’t just that the law is unpopular with swing voters — yes, disapproval is running high, but repeal is also unpopular, which offers a way to fight disapproval to a draw. The more pressing problem is that Obamacare revs up the GOP base — worsening the “midterm falloff” turnout problem already present in non-presidential years — but it doesn’t excite the Dem base anywhere near enough to offset that problem.

***

The South is where President Barack Obama and Democrats long have struggled, and it’s where the party’s toughest battleground will be this year in the fight for control of the U.S. Senate.

Three incumbents must face the consequences of having voted for Obama’s health care law, but Republicans first must settle primaries in several states, including a challenge to Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky.

All but one of the potentially competitive races is in a state Obama lost in 2012, and the president remains deeply unpopular among whites in the region. Republicans are optimistic they can achieve the six-seat gain needed to retake the Senate.

Democratic Sens. Kay Hagan of North Carolina, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana and Mark Pryor of Arkansas are on the ballot for the first time since voting for the Affordable Care Act in 2010. The law’s wobbly start and its image as a power-grab have the incumbents on the defensive, emphasizing local issues and avoiding unnecessary mention of the second-term president who leads their party.

***

Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu has reserved $2.6 million in air time between mid-April and the end of June, according to a source tracking the ad war in the race for her Louisiana seat.

The endangered incumbent claimed nearly $2 million in time between April 21 and June 29 for 30-second TV commercials and an additional $645,000 from April 14 to May 25 for 60-second spots.

Republicans, who have relentlessly attacked Landrieu for her support of President Barack Obama’s health care law, called the large and early ad reservations a sign of desperation.

“The wheels are coming off of Mary Landrieu’s campaign,” emailed National Republican Senatorial Committee strategist Brad Dayspring. “This is what panic looks like … Perhaps Mary Landrieu demanding that voters make her reelect a referendum on Obamacare wasn’t the brightest idea.”

***

Repeal is not a policy. Repeal provides no economic security for anyone. So I think the Democrats need to go on the offense, explain how the Republican Party wants to repeal healthcare, which is a right, wants to take back those policies that would prevent discrimination against women, against people who have preexisting conditions and then lay out a robust economic agenda, minimum wage, better jobs which are being obstructed by Republicans in congress, pre-K, all kinds of things that will turn out core voters.

***

If [President Obama] doesn’t get, as I said, more involved in raising money, in getting voters excited, we know as you said that Obamacare is going to bring Republicans out. What issues can the president try to put on the table to get Democrats excited? If he doesn’t get more involved in raising money and making this a choice as Dan Pfeiffer said, you lose the Senate and if you lose the Senate, turn out the lights because the party’s over.

Obamacare leaves the average 27 year old facing a gender-averaged 47.5 percent premium increase, according to Forbes. Even after subsidies, that’s an expense that many Millennials can’t afford.

Perversely, such high costs make it even harder for us to purchase health insurance in the future, when we can afford it. By not signing up for expensive plans now, insurance rates will increase as soon as next year — for everyone. That leaves us with two choices: Buy an unaffordable plan now, or wait and buy an unaffordable plan later.

Our only remaining option is to opt out of Obamacare entirely. If the latest numbers are any indication, that’s exactly what Millennials in Nevada are doing. We know a bad deal when we see one —and we’re not as dumb as Obamacare’s marketers seem to think.

DoD Statement on Boarding of Commercial Tanker Morning Glory

Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Adm. John Kirby provided the following statement:

“No one was hurt tonight when U.S. forces, at the request of both the Libyan and Cypriot governments, boarded and took control of the commercial tanker Morning Glory, a stateless vessel seized earlier this month by three armed Libyans.

“The boarding operation, approved by President Obama and conducted just after 10 p.m. EDT on March 16 in international waters southeast of Cypress, was executed by a team of U.S. Navy SEALs attached to Special Operations Command Europe.

“The SEAL team embarked and operated from the guided missile destroyer USS Roosevelt (DDG-80). USS Roosevelt provided helicopter support and served as a command and control and support platform for the other members of the force assigned to conduct the mission.

“The Morning Glory is carrying a cargo of oil owned by the Libyan government National Oil Company. The ship and its cargo were illicitly obtained from the Libyan port of As-Sidra.

“The Morning Glory will be underway soon to a port in Libya with a team of sailors from the USS Stout (DDG-55) embarked. The sailors will be supervising the transit.

“USS Roosevelt is homeported in Mayport, Fla. and is deployed as part of the George H.W. Bush Carrier Strike Group. USS Stout is homeported in Norfolk, Va.”

Navy SEALs Seize Oil Freighter ‘Morning Glory’ in Mediterranean

Hmmm…North Korea?

Media reports earlier in the week indicated that the freighter was a North Korean-flagged vessel loaded with 200,000 barrels of oil. The port is currently under the control of Libyan rebel forces seeking more autonomy from the Libyan government who control crucial oil facilities and ports in eastern Libya. It is unclear if the vessel really is a North Korea vessel.

Nevada May Have To Pay For Health Exchang Errors

“Obmacare is clogging the courts in more ways that one. Las Vegan Larry Basich paid the premium on his Nevada Health Link insurance plan in November, but as of Feb. 25, it wasn’t clear who was covering Basich. The retired civil engineer had a triple bypass on Jan. 3 and now has $407,000 in medical bills.

Consumers are getting restless.

And wherever there are unhappy consumers, lawsuits often follow.

Whether they are frightened of going without medical care, angry about not receiving their insurance cards or trying to prove a point, Nevadans increasingly say they are weighing legal action over the rollout of Nevada Health Link, the state exchange through which they can buy coverage to comply with the federal Affordable Care Act.

The exchange’s glitch-riddled website has prevented thousands from enrolling in plans.

Other consumers who have made it through the system say they have paid premiums but received no verification of a plan, and can’t see their doctor as a result.

Courts nationwide already are clogged with Obamacare-related lawsuits ranging from whether tax credits apply to consumers who bought on the federal exchange to whether the law’s employer mandate is constitutional.

A growing number of legal challenges relate to how the law is affecting consumers.

A California legislator is suing the Covered California exchange because he said the agency has forced cancellation of more than a million existing policies.

Also in California, two consumers have sued for being persuaded to switch to new coverage when they didn’t have to. New York’s attorney general is investigating on behalf of patients who enrolled through the state’s exchange but have been left without coverage.

The wave of lawsuits hasn’t washed over Nevada yet, but it’s a matter of time.

“A class action suit is just waiting to happen. I definitely see it happening,” said Pat Casale, a Las Vegas insurance broker with Pat Casale &Associates.

“Eventually, people’s claims will be paid, but eventually isn’t good enough,” said Casale, who has had clients go without care after coverage mix-ups in plans bought on the exchange. “Pretty soon, phone calls are going to be coming in from providers for payment, and the pressure is going to be on.”

Richard Harris, managing partner of the Richard Harris Law Firm in Las Vegas, said his firm has received calls from disgruntled patients. Harris said he knows of no lawsuit filed in Nevada, though that could change if the exchange doesn’t improve soon.

“The question is whether you’re wrongfully denying people coverage which they’re entitled to. You could make a case for tort liability in the abstract, yes. There’s technically tort liability for the state,” Harris said.

How liable the state might be is the question. First, some background on the issues exchange users face.

Start with the smaller cases.

Lori Friel-Frame has reached out to the Review-Journal several times to share her woes. Friel-Frame most recently wrote to say she was “going to have to contact an attorney for some action.”

Here’s why: Friel-Frame signed up for coverage through Nevada Health Link on Dec. 17. She said the exchange mistakenly deducted her $945.72 premium twice. What’s more, she never received any plan information, and discovered any coverage she did have excluded her doctor from its network, even though the provider was listed on the exchange website….”

“A Kremlin statement said Putin also told Obama during the call, which the US initiated, that the case of Crimea was in line with the so-called “Kosovo precedent”. Putin has claimed that the recognition of the former Yugoslavian territory as a sovereign state in 2008 established a legal framework for secession that could be repeated by other separatist movements…”

If you like your delay…you can keep your delay…

“While several other elements of the health-care law have unilaterally been delayed, top White House adviser Dan Pfeiffer ruled out the possibility that President Obama would delay the individual mandate.

“That will not happen?” David Gregory pressed Pfeiffer on Meet the Press.

“That will not happen,” he asserted.

Pfeiffer’s guarantee comes days after the Wall Street Journal reported that the Obama administration quietly provided a two-year “hardship exemption” from the mandate for those who had their previous health-care plans canceled. The Department of Health and Human Services included that exemption in a separate announcement delaying another aspect of the law: one that would allow insurance providers to renew previously terminated plans after 2016.

Nonetheless, Pfeiffer defended the administration’s delays as being part of the process of implementing large pieces of legislation….”

“Voting begins Sunday on a referendum on whether Venice and its surrounding region should secede from the rest of Italy, in an attempt to restore its 1,000-year history as a sovereign republic.

La Serenissima — or the Most Serene Republic of Venice — was an independent trading power for a millennium before its last leader was deposed by Napoleon in 1797. The republic encompassed not just Venice but what is now the surrounding region of Veneto and it is there that the vote will take place from tomorrow until Friday.

Campaigners have been inspired by the example of Scotland, which will hold its referendum on independence in September, and Catalonia, where around half the population say they want to break away from Spain.

Activists say that the latest polling shows that 65% of voters in the Veneto region, which includes historic cities such as Treviso, Vicenza and Verona, are in favour of cutting ties with Rome.

For decades there has been deep-seated dissatisfaction in the rich northern regions of Italy with what is widely regarded as inefficient and venal rule from Rome, as well as resentment that hard-won tax revenues are sent south and often squandered.

About 3.8 million people in Veneto are eligible to vote. Campaigners want a future state to be known as Repubblica Veneta — the Republic of Veneto.

They acknowledge that the vote is not binding on the national government in Rome and could cause a big constitutional upheaval, but insist that if it passes, they will start taking steps to withhold taxes, in what would effectively be a unilateral declaration of independence.

“If there is a majority yes vote, we have scholars drawing up a declaration of independence and there are businesses in the region who say they will begin paying taxes to local authorities instead of to Rome,” Lodovico Pizzati, the spokesman for the independence movement, told The Daily Telegraph…”
