Lies, Lies, Lies and Sebelius, impossible to separate - CNN: Sebelius Falsely Claimed She's Not Eligible for ObamaCare
Under intense grilling from two Republican Representatives, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius claimed that it would be "illegal" for her to get insurance through the ObamaCare exchanges. Her claim is that, since she is eligible for insurance through her federal employer, she cannot opt-out of that insurance to sign on to ObamaCare. As CNN points out, that is simply false:

Article | De Blasio Getting Away With Lameness
Some guys have all the luck. Bill de Blasio has run a lazy mayoral race based on stale ideas — but he floated to front-runner status because his primary opponents were weaker. General-election challenger Joe Lhota is New York’s last chance for a real race — or to at least make de Blasio say something interesting and new. But Lhota didn’t rise to the occasion in Tuesday night’s debate.
De Blasio, the city’s public advocate, was a weak performer. He coasted on his one main idea: hiking taxes on the wealthy to pay for pre-K, and thus magically make our "tale of two cities" into one.
De Blasio repeatedly called this trope "big and bold." Lhota should have said: Spending yet more money on education is the oldest vote-getter in the book. That’s how New York ended up with a $24.6 billion education budget, or $22,364 per student.
Sure, de Blasio said a few other things.
He wants to force private developers to build 200,000 "affordable" apartments. Small businesses are the "backbone" of the city. He’s for charter schools and against them: Charter schools that have money should pay rent to the city, but those that don’t, shouldn’t.
But mainly, de Blasio stuck to bromides. As in: "We have enough luxury condos in New York City."
When remotely challenged, he fell back on standbys. He attacked Mayor Bloomberg, insisting that "we need a clean break from the Bloomberg years." He absurdly said that Bloomberg is an example of "Republican ideology," although the mayor has hiked education spending and affordable housing subsidies, just as de Blasio wants to do.

Norway Town Sees Winter Sun for 1st Time
By MARK LEWIS
Residents of the small Norwegian town of Rjukan have finally seen the light.
Tucked in between steep mountains, the town is normally shrouded in shadow for almost six months a year, with residents having to catch a cable car to the top of a nearby precipice to get a fix of midday vitamin D.
But on Wednesday faint rays from the winter sun for the first time reached the town's market square, thanks to three 183-square-foot (17-square-meter) mirrors placed on a mountain.
Cheering families, some on sun loungers, drinking cocktails and waving Norwegian flags, donned shades as the sun crept from behind a cloud to hit the mirrors and reflect down onto the faces of delighted children below.
Like much of Scandinavia, the town of Rjukan often is freezing throughout the winter, but on Wednesday it was 45 degrees Fahrenheit (7 degrees Celsius) there.
The Italian town of Viganella has a similar, but smaller, sun mirror.
The plan to illuminate Rjukan was cooked up 100 years ago by the Norwegian industrialist Sam Eyde, who built the town to provide workers for a hydroelectric plant he located at the foot of a nearby waterfall.
The renowned engineer never saw his plan become reality, but his plant and the Telemark town he founded developed a special affection in the Norwegian imagination as the site of the country's most famous wartime escapade.

Top Dem Admits: 'We Knew' | National Review Online
“We knew that there would be some policies that would not qualify and therefore people would be required to get more extensive coverage,” Hoyer said in response to a question from National Review.
Asked by another reporter how repeated statements by Obama to the contrary weren’t “misleading,” Hoyer said “I don’t think the message was wrong. I think the message was accurate. It was not precise enough…[it] should have been caveated with – ‘assuming you have a policy that in fact does do what the bill is designed to do.’”
Hoyer noted that people losing access to their current plans are mostly in the individual market, which is a small segment of the overall market. He also argued that requiring those plans to follow new mandates and regulations was important for ensuring those plans included “adequate coverage so the public would not have to be on the hook for serious illnesses or other illnesses.”

So we now have a date. “We’re confident by the end of November, Healthcare.gov will be smooth for a vast majority of users,” Jeff Zients, the point man in charge of the “tech surge” the White House is unleashing to fix the site’s problems, told reporters last week. “The Healthcare.gov site is fixable. It will take a lot of work, and there are a lot of problems that need to be addressed.”
