Please read the short alert I sent out last night about the "We Are One" union fight-back in America slated for today, including as a high school and college lesson plan.
Fox News reports: A $5 billion program aimed at providing temporary help to employers to maintain medical coverage for early retirees is being quickly depleted, as Republican lawmakers express outrage over the number of large, profitable corporations that have pocketed the taxpayer money.
The Early Retiree Reinsurance Program was created by the federal health care law passed by Democrats and signed by President Obama last year. The purpose was to encourage employers not to drop health coverage of early retirees before some of the key provisions of the health care law take effect in 2014.
But much of the money has gone to some big-name companies and organizations, including more than $200 million for the United Auto Workers, $140 million for AT&T and $91.7 million for Verizon.
And General Electric, which made news this week for not owing federal taxes on $14.2 billion in profit, got $36.6 million through the retiree program.  http://www.foxnews.mobi/quickPage.html?page=22995&external=829478.proteus.fma&pageNum=-1

Reporting that President Obama has stated that he would forge ahead with military action [in Libya] even if Congress passed a resolution constraining the mission, Dennis Kucinich declares this to be a clear and arrogant violation of the Constitution.



Vision to America writes: As of Wednesday night, a vote may finally be in sight for an amendment that would revoke the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act. After days of back and forth over scheduling, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid signaled late Wednesday that a vote is tentatively set for Thursday afternoon. But according to Inhofe, the reason the EPA amendment hasn’t come up for a vote yet is because Democrats are concerned about what it could do to their re-election chances in 2012.  http://visiontoamerica.org/story/sen-inhofe-obama-cant-veto-legislation-blocking-epa-regulations.html

The New American writes about Janet Napolitano: the Homeland Security Secretary, confessed last week that the Obama administration will not deport illegal-alien students who would have fallen under the protection of the failed DREAM Act, the amnesty for illegal aliens that traveled under the name of immigration reform.The practical result of the Obama administration’s policy, as she explained it, is that the DREAM Act is now the law even though Congress did not pass it.  http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/politics/6959-napolitano-unpassed-dream-act-now-
Redstate opines: Let me first say the number you are going to hear batted about today is that Paul Ryan’s budget cuts $6.2 trillion. Please keep in mind that following that number is this language: “from the president’s budget over the next 10 years.” That is different from actually cutting $6.2 trillion. These are cuts placed in juxtaposition to the President’s proposed cuts. We will find out later today what the real cuts are.
Paul Ryan is a very decent guy, but he is just a man. He supported No Child Left Behind, the medicare prescription drug benefit, TARP, the auto bailout, the arguably unconstitutional AIG bonus tax, and capping CEO pay among other things. He is not infallible. Please, conservatives, try not to sound too enraptured.  http://www.redstate.com/erick/2011/04/05/paul-ryan-is-not-jesus-but-his-path-to-prosperity-gospel-is-really-good/
CBS News reports: Authorities intercepted a parcel this morning addressed to Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) containing a bloody pig's foot and a derogatory message, a source has confirmed to CBS News.  http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-20050604-503544.html
Redstate writes about Muslim who kill because one American burned a Koran: Ghosh says, “the Koran, if you are a believer, if you`re a Muslim, the Koran is directly the word of God, not written by man. It is transcribed, is directly the word of God. That makes it sacred in a way that it`s hard to understand if you`re not Muslim.”
In other words, Ghosh thinks the savage murder of innocent people when the Koran is burned is a normal part of being a muslim. Now, assuming we take as the objective fact that most Christians believe exactly as Muslims believe regardless of Ghosh’s ignorance — that the Bible is the inerrant , God breathed very Word of God — we are left with a compelling glimpse into the world.
Time Magazine’s “World Editor” believes that it is a perfectly expected act for the “Religion of Peace” to lob off the heads of the infidel in revenge for a Koran burning and for Christians to sit idly by when their Bible is burned.  http://www.redstate.com/erick/2011/04/04/time-magazine-bobby-ghosh-is-ignorant-about-christianity/
Yahoo news reports: Yielding to political opposition, the Obama administration gave up Monday on trying avowed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four alleged henchmen in civilian federal court in New York and will prosecute them instead before military commissions. [I could believe that Obama and his chosen administration are so uninformed about the real life of a President, so uneducated in so many things, that they are just now actually learning why President George Bush made his decisions.  It may have nothing to do with "pressure" and every thing to do with finally wising up to the dangers presented.  After all, if pressure bothered them, we would not now have the unconstitutional and voided Obamacare law and all the other outrageous overreach of this administration.] http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110405/ap_on_re_us/us_terrorism_trial
The NY Post opines: The AG, however, felt compelled to wag his middle finger at Congress, the CIA and the American people: "Members of Congress simply do not have access to the evidence" to determine where the trials should be held.
Asked by reporters whether Congress reflected the will and wisdom of its 300 million constituents, Holder smoldered: "Do I know better than them? Yes."
Political Wire shares a Mother Jones item: "There's a Mike Huckabee mystery that won't go away. Send a public records request seeking documents from his 12-year stint as Arkansas governor, as Mother Jones did recently, and an eyebrow-raising reply will come back: The records are unavailable, and the computer hard drives that once contained them were erased and physically destroyed by the Huckabee administration as the governor prepared to leave office and launch a presidential bid." http://politicalwire.com/archives/2011/04/04/huckabees_gubernatorial_records_missing.html
