Health law's troubles give GOP a much-needed boost

Sunday, 10 November 2013 09:48 Published in National News

WASHINGTON (AP) — The health care law's seemingly endless problems are giving congressional Republicans a much-needed boost by helping them move past the government shutdown debacle and focus on a theme for the 2014 elections.

Republicans' approval ratings plunged during last month's partial shutdown and worrisome talk of a possible U.S. debt default.

Now the GOP is back on offense.

Republicans pillory administration officials at congressional hearings.

They note that millions of people are losing their medical insurance despite President Barack Obama's promise that it wouldn't happen.

And they point to the program's flawed enrollment process.

Conservative groups are pouring money into ad campaigns reminding voters that many Democrats had promised that Americans could keep their current insurance policies.

These groups are especially targeting Democratic senators facing tough races next year.

Silicon Valley tank collection heading east

Sunday, 10 November 2013 09:47 Published in National News

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The family of a Silicon Valley engineer who amassed one of the nation's most extensive historic military vehicle collections is giving the tanks, missile launchers and armored vehicles to a Massachusetts-based museum that will preserve and display some of them.

Until now, the $30 million fleet of tanks has been refurbished and housed in seven storage sheds on a family estate up a winding, forested road above Silicon Valley; they are visited only under privately arranged tours.

But in a deal inked on July 4 and announced Monday in honor of Veteran's Day, the 240 pieces have been signed over to The Collings Foundation, which preserves historic military aircraft and now plans to add a new military vehicle museum at its Stow, Mass., headquarters.

Organizers ban campaigning at Veterans Day parade

Sunday, 10 November 2013 09:39 Published in Local News

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The annual Veterans Day parade in Illinois' capital city has a new rule this year: No politicians, and no campaigning.

The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports the change is part of an effort to refocus the event on the military men and women who served the country.

Organizers also are banning participants from throwing candy to people lining the streets downtown Springfield.

Sam Montalbano is a parade organizer. He says World War II veterans "aren't going to be around much longer" and it's time to salute them.

Monday's parade will honor all veterans.

Politicians who served in the military may participate with their veterans groups, but they can't do any campaigning.

Instead of candy, participants will hand out small American flags.
