Rep. Tom Price, a congressman from Georgia and former physician, was named by Donald Trump to head Health and Human Services. With his political and medical background, he may be the perfect person to reform ObamaCare.
He’s already put forward a workable plan, the Empowering Patients First Act, that would vastly improve our nation’s health care system by repealing the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and replace it with patient-centered provisions that would control costs and expand coverage in the private health insurance markets.
Major elements of Price’s plan have already been put into House Speaker Paul Ryan’s health care proposal. Look for it to move quickly after Trump takes office.
Northern Illinois is getting their first taste of snow for the season. They originally forecast 1-3″, but have revised it to 3-5″. These same “experts” can state unequivocally that the temperature will rise 1/10th of a degree in 200 years so we must throw trillions in tax money to third world toilets to combat “climate change.”
The sad sack Chicago Bears are playing the equally inept San Francisco 49ers. Chicago is 2-9, the 49ers even worse at 1-10. It’s such a sad state of affairs Chicago fans are hoping for a loss to move up in the order for the college draft next May. It looks like the game is being played in a snow globe.
OH LORD BARACK, HEAR OUR CRIES AND PARDON US BEFORE THAT MEAN RACIST DONALD TRUMP TAKES YOUR PLACE Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl Requests Pardon from Obama Before Trump Takes Office

President-elect Donald Trump criticized Bergdahl on the campaign trail, calling him a “dirty, rotten traitor” who “should have been executed,” the Hill reported.
Will Obama pardon Clinton and cement his legacy?
Before there’s any more talk of carving out a chunk of Mt. Rushmore for him, or more talk of statues or temples in his name, there is that Hillary Clinton pardon issue.
Would Obama give his former secretary of state a preemptory get-out-of-jail card before he leaves office and turns the White House over to Donald Trump?
Texas Gov: Sanctuary Campuses Will Lose State Funding
Texas Gov. Greg Abbot says the state will cut off funding to any public school that declares itself a “sanctuary campus” for illegal immigrants.

Obama, Senate Democrats Trying to Keep FCC Democrat Controlled Under Trump Administration
OBAMA AND REID ARE GOING TO SCREW TRUMP ANY WAY THEY CAN
Harry Reid and President Obama are circulating a petition to remove the hold on FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel so that she can be reconfirmed before Congress recesses next week

HUUUGE NEVADA VOTER FRAUD UNCOVERED? WORSE THAN ACORN YOU WONDER HOW DINGY HARRY REID, THE MOST REVILED MAN IN NEVADA, KEPT WINNING?
Edward Snowden, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and dozens of movie stars were registered to vote in District 15 according to Mr. Vaughan. Mr. Vaughan tested a sample of 200 people of the 9,200 return mail and found that 185 of those had indeed voted.
Mr. Vaughan and many others have testified that they went to the polls to vote only to be told they had voted already. They were given a provisional ballots which would only be counted if the total vote count was within 1% according to poll supervisors.

Vaughan reported the certified returned mail issue to Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske, who according to Vaughan, sent the issue back to Clark County to investigate itself.

Trump speaks with Taiwan’s president, risking China tensions
It is perhaps unprecedented for a U.S. president or president-elect to speak directly with a leader of Taiwan, a self-governing island the U.S. broke diplomatic ties with in 1979.
In first comments apparently meant to downplay the significance of the call, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Saturday that the contact between Taiwan’s president and Trump was “just a small trick by Taiwan” that he believed would not change U.S. policy toward China, according to Hong Kong’s Phoenix TV.

Media: If Trump’s Economy Is Good, Thank Obama!
And so a new media narrative has just been launched: If Donald Trump succeeds, it will be because President Barack Obama gave him such a great push. How else to explain the near simultaneous publication of two articles on Friday, one in Politico, the other at FiveThirtyEight.
Nabisco Now Wants to Talk to Trump
On the campaign trail, Trump slammed Nabisco for moving jobs to Mexico, vowing to never eat another Oreo even though he loves them.
After Donald Trump negotiated a deal to keep nearly 1,000 Indiana-based Carrier jobs from moving to Mexico, Nabisco is now looking to open the lines of communication with the president-elect.
How Trump Could Create Millions Of Energy Jobs
A 2015 study found the coal industry lost 50,000 jobs from 2008 to 2012 during Obama’s first term. During Obama’s second term, the industry employment in coal mining has fallen by another 33,300 jobs, 10,900 of which occurred in the last year alone, according to federal data. As a result, many ex-coal miners are unemployed and Appalachian “coal country” has faced very real economic devastation as a result.

U.S.—Reports from around the nation Thursday indicate that millions of American citizens were still reeling from the revelation that a prominent Christian couple holds a historically Christian position.
“We’re not saying people can’t be Christians,” a Seattle woman said in a Facebook comment. “This is a free country, after all. But when Christians decide to actually have Christian beliefs about things—I’m sorry, that’s just too far.”
A man in Denver agreed, stating that he prided himself on his deep appreciation of and support for freedom of beliefs and religious tolerance, “so long as Christians don’t publicly hold opinions I find disagreeable.”
“It’s almost as if they take the Bible seriously or something,” he added, shaking his head.
This revelation comes on the heels of a national Gallup poll released earlier this week indicating that over 95% of Americans agreed with the statement, “Christians are allowed to practice their beliefs, as long as everyone agrees with them.”
