At the behest of that scumbag Obama they will do everything they can to make this transition as difficult as possible.
The order does not change the law, but could have a significant impact nonetheless.
It directs the secretary of health and human services, as well as other agencies, to interpret regulations as loosely as allowed to minimize the financial burden on individuals, insurers, health care providers and others.
It stressed that agencies can "waive, defer, grant exemptions from or delay implementation of any provision or requirement" of Obamacare that imposes a burden "to the maximum extent permitted by law."
(Also, if there's a forum on sports, shouldn't there be one on education?)
I stress TRYING to get Russia to join NATO because I am fully aware of Russian sentiments about merely serving as a "puppet" if they joined NATO. This is where there is room to redefine NATO's mission and how we go about this mission with the United States and Russia as members. Now, if NATO's mission could be redefined and if Russia were given some degree of freedom to operate within the limits of the NATO membership, I would be inclined to think that Vladimir Putin may be interested to join. The benefits of membership would be hard to ignore for both the United States and Russia.
With Russia as a NATO member, we will have some control over any future attempts to seize land and invade countries that are not NATO members. Also, Russia will be far more stable and more predictable with an end of their economic sanctions and allowing their military arms be to adopted by NATO member nations. Also, with Russia as a NATO member, there will be no more fears about needing to build missile defense systems against Russia and Russian systems to counter ours. This move seems to solve numerous problems all at once and it also can be used to curb Chinese aggression as well.
Yes, we can TRY to negotiate our way to solving the South China Sea issue and we can show force by deploying more Naval vessels and aircraft carriers in the South China Sea to possibly provoke China into a military action. However, looking at this further, China has also been building and sending satellite destroying satellites in space which are capable of literally destroying our military satellites and crippling our worldwide military communications, giving China an upper hand if a skirmish broke out in the South China Sea. With this obvious pickle in the works, I would be inclined to have Russia as a strong ally of ours, and especially when China too has been accused of stealing Russian secrets and military equipment designs. We are more likely to get involved in a war with China than we are with Russia as developments continue and if these news reports tell the entire truth of the situation going on in the South China Sea.
