Health - Health Care
FILE - In this March 23, 2017, file photo, Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington. Senate Republicans’ struggle to pass a health care bill is jeopardizing another one of President Donald Trump’s top priorities: overhauling America’s tax system. A day after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., delayed a vote on a bill to scrap much of Democrat Barack Obama’s health law, questions lingered about whether congressional Republicans could pass big, complicated pieces of legislation. “The whole idea is to do health care first because you gain an advantage there to go on and do tax reform,” said Roberts. “We’ve sort of bollixed that up but I’m encouraged.” (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)
Health - Health Care
TheRighteousHand: In Malaysia we called it 1DMB scandal. In Singapore we call it Oxleygate. And you thought corruption and abuse of power only happens in the Malaysian government? Time for the 70 % Singaporeans to wake up. What is happening in Malaysia, the lies and the removal of top officials to consolidate the power structure of Najib to clear him of wrongdoing, are exactly happening here as well, every bit of it. Which part is different? (a) Najib claimed there was no wrong doing, and he did not benefit from the money going into his account. LHL also denied he had abused his powers. (b) Najib removed the AG suddenly and put in a puppet so that no charges will ever be issued against him. LHL also made a sudden change in AG and put in his own personal lawyer as AG. (c) Almost all of Najib's ministers came out to defend him, some with absurb comments that really showed their stupidity. The same is happening here. We have the likes of DPM Teo, Indranee, Lawrence Wong, Shanmugam..... (d) Behind every "successful" man there is a POWERFUL woman. Najib had Rosmah as his dowager. Here in Singapore, LHL is ear-pulled by his dowager Ho Ching, also popularly known as Representative of PMO (dunno where this position come from), Ms. buy-high-sell-low, Ms.take-first-ask-permission-later, and lately, Ms. Cleaner lady (moonlighting as one).
