The goal is to boost enrollment figures and reframe the debate with Republican opponents.
Obama Embarks On New Health-Care Push After Web Site Fixes, Urges Americans To Sign Up President Obama on Tuesday embarked on the difficult task of persuading Americans to reconsider his landmark health-care law after its botched launch, imploring people to sign up as part of a major push to publicize the benefits of the Affordable Care Act. Republicans immediately lampooned the effort — coming more than three years after passage of the law and two months after its disastrous rollout — and conservative activists vowed to wage a counterassault publicizing the law’s downsides (Goldfarb and Eilperin, 12/3).
W.H. Kicks Off Turnaround Campaign On Obamacare President Barack Obama, confident that HealthCare.gov is finally working, attempted Tuesday to shift the nation’s attention toward Affordable Care Act benefits that he says were overshadowed by website problems at a critical time for the law. The pre

Despite returning like a hero from beating Brandon Rios over the weekend, Manny Pacquiao said Tuesday he has no money to keep his promise to help typhoon victims because Philippine revenue authorities have frozen his bank accounts.
The Bureau of Internal Revenue says Pacquiao hasnt proved he paid taxes in 2008-2009. It has assessed that Pacquiao, once one of the worlds highest paid athletes, owed 2.2 billion pesos ($50 million) in back taxes as of July.
Pacquiao, the wealthiest member of the Philippine Congress, said Tuesday he borrowed over 1 million pesos ($22,700) to purchase relief supplies before his fight Sunday with Rios in Macau and will borrow more to keep his word to typhoon victims. Pacquiao said he plans to provide aid to more than 10,000 families.
Fierce winds and tsunami-like storm surges from Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest typhoons on record, demolished entire communities and killed over 5,200 people when it ploughed through the central Philippines.
In the coming weeks, drawers and cupboards in homes around the country will start being filled up with Christmas gifts, and burglars know it. We take out home contents insurance with burglars in mind, but you probably didn’t factor in the extra valuables in your home around this time of year when you estimated the value of your possessions on the proposal form. So does that mean they wouldn’t be covered if they were stolen?
Let’s take a look.
‘Twas the month before Christmas…
There’s around four whole shopping weeks left until December 25, and while a hateful few will already have everything wrapped up, the majority of us are likely to be out spending soon.
MoneySuperMarket research last year estimated we’d spend an average of £445 on Christmas gifts. J
Officials in at least a half dozen states are pushing back against health plans in the new insurance markets that limit choice of doctors and hospitals in a bid to control medical costs.
The plans don’t start offering coverage until January but they’re facing regulatory action, possible legislation, and in at least one case involving a high-profile children’s hospital, litigation.
The pushback against “narrow” provider networks recalls the backlash against managed care and health maintenance organizations in the 1990s. Protests from consumers and hospitals eroded those attempts to restrain expenses by narrowing provider networks.
Now criticism of limited networks has risen as consumers realize that, despite President Barack Obama’s pledge that they could keep their doctors, their Affordable Care Act insurance may not include the physicians or hospitals they’ve been seeing.
The critique feeds into the politically damaging outcry over the millions of people whose health plans were cancelled. It’s unclear w
