• CNN poll says optimism on the economy drops: The number of Americans who said that things were going well had been slowly but steadily rising since last fall, but numbers from a CNN/ORC International poll released Friday reverse that trend, with optimism about how things are going in the country now at 36% down seven points from April. And 63% say things are going poorly, up six points from April."

    A provision of ObamaCare is set to punish roughly two-thirds of U.S. hospitals evaluated by Medicare starting this fall over high readmission rates, according to an analysis by Kaiser Health News.

    Starting in October, Medicare will reduce reimbursements to hospitals with high 30-day readmission rates – which refers to patients who return within a month – by as much as 1 percent. The maximum penalty increases to 2 percent the following year and 3 percent in 2014.

    Why isn't MSDNC and CNN not reporting this!

    obamacare is throwing the seniors and middle class under the bus!
