So this is designed to help them to be able to access doctors in a way thats more affordable. The reason that were talking about it and why the funding is in question is that theres an argument between the administration ― the Obama administration, it started out with ― and the Republicans in Congress as to how it would be paid for. The Obama administration felt that it was built into their budget. Congress thought that it was not. So theres a fight. Its a little bit like if I hired someone to paint my house, and then my wife and I argued about whos going to write the check: Is it coming out of my account or her account? We still owe the painter the money. He did the work. But were arguing about whose bank account this is going to come out of. Thats the issue right now. So were looking for Congress to acknowledge that theyre going to pay for it and to fund the program.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) said Thursday she is "troubled" that former President Barack Obama, who has, like Warren, decried income inequality and criticized Wall Street bankers, will reportedly receive $400,000 from a Wall Street firm to speak at its health care conference. Money in politics is like "a snake," Warren warned during an interview on Sirus XM's "Alter Family Politics" after she was asked about Obama's speaking fee. "What do you think about President Obama accepting $400,000 from Wall Street?" Warren was asked. "Well, I was troubled by that," the Massachusetts Democrat responded. Warren cited several ways that money influences politics in the nation's capital, saying she and others need to "fight back" against the "rich and powerful." Both Obama and Warren have been outspoken critics of income inequality and Wall Street. Obama blamed Wall Street bankers for the 2008 financial crisis, publicly calling for their accountability, and in 2009 referred to them as "fat cats.

Thursday on Fox News Channels Fox Friends, Dr. Phil McGraw, host of Dr. Phil, reacted to the threats of violence that forced the cancellation of conservative commentator Ann Coulters scheduled speech in Berkeley, CA a night earlier. McGraw told Fox Friends that those that felt compelled to shut down those that they disagreed with was just another measure of entitlement. Im troubled by that, he said. Im troubled by either side. Look, we have the right everybody has the right to protest and do it peacefully. Were guaranteed that right. But if somebody starts doing things, talking about things that you dont like and you start threatening, you start putting peoples lives in danger. Come on. The test of the First Amendment is that you fight to protect the right to talk about things you hate the most.

Meanwhile, Syrian forces have several times claimed to have shot down IDF aircraft which were violating the country's airspace. Israel has annexed the Golan Heights in 1981 following the 1967 Six-Day War with Syria. The relations between Israel and Iran have been strained since the Iranian Revolution in the late 1970s. The ties are overshadowed by a number of issues, including Tehran's nuclear and missile programs accompanied by controversial anti-Israeli statements made by high-ranking Iranian officials, such as former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Hezbollah, considered by Israel a terrorist organization, was established in the 1980s in Lebanon. Both Tehran and Hezbollah have been supporting the Syrian government in its fight against multiple armed groups inside the country.

Ukrainian says he is a boxer who can punch, Joshua is merely a puncherSaturday’s heavyweight title buildup continues on its educated way There was nothing more to say but they said it anyway. Hoovering up a few more pay-per-view clicks at the end of a long promotion ritually relies on pre-fight shenanigans but there was no chance of that when Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko stopped short of eloping together on Thursday as their world title fight on Saturday night looms. For weeks now, the bloodthirsty wing of the sport has complained these guys were way too nice. They shook hands every time they met, they laughed at each other’s jokes – such as they were – and, even when they had their face-off on Sky recently, there were as likely to tip the table on Johnny Nelson’s head as David Haye was to go on holiday with Tony Bellew.

President Rouhani also ordered Iran's Supreme National Security Council and Ministry of Foreign Affairs to follow up on this issue with diligence so as to prevent repetition of such “unmanly acts” of terrorism. Terrorists not to go unpunished' Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said his ministry will spare no effort in following up the case through diplomatic channels and punishing terrorist thugs.” In a message on Thursday, Zarif also expressed sympathy with the families of the victims and those wounded in the attack. In a related development, Iran’s First Vice President Es'haq Jahangiri issued a statement on Thursday, saying the perpetrators of this inhumane and abhorrent crime will be brought to justice for their despicable deeds.” Terrorists and mercenaries should know that “they cannot make a dent in the Islamic Republic’s firm resolve to fight terrorism and banditry through such inhumane and perfidious acts,” he said.

As I meet, or lend an ear to those who are sick, to the migrants who face terrible hardships in search of a brighter future, to prison inmates who carry a hell of pain inside their hearts, and to those, many of them young, who cannot find a job, I often find myself wondering: Why them and not me?' he continued. This is a question many of us face: Why are we so blessed while so many people suffer? There are so many extremities in this dualistic world we live in, and it can be easy to get caught up in them. Of course, there are many explanations like soul contracts, karmic relations, past lifetimes, or simply unfortunate circumstance, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't fight for equality. We all need each other, none of us is an island, an autonomous and independent I' separated from the other, and we can only build the future by standing together, including everyone.
