  • The Obamacare that consumers will finally be able to sign up for next week is a long way from the health plan President Barack Obama first pitched to the nation. Millions of low-income Americans won’t receive coverage. Many workers at small businesses won’t get a choice of insurance plans right away. Large employers won’t need to provide insurance for another year. Far more states than expected won’t run their own insurance marketplaces. And a growing number of workers won’t get to keep their employer-provided coverage. Source: POLITICO…


  • A former British marine emerged as a hero of the Nairobi siege Sunday after he was credited with saving up to 100 lives.

His story emerged as sporadic gunfire continued to ring out from inside the mall early today as Kenyan security forces battled al-Qaida-linked terrorists into a fourth day. Source: Daily Mail…
