Jack Lew Violates Medicare Law, Yet Again

Our media has collectively decided Obama's too awesome to be bound by mere paper law.

Senate Republicans are sending a letter Monday to the White House budget office arguing that President Obama’s nominee to be treasury secretary, Jacob “Jack” Lew, was complicit in breaking a Medicare budget law.

The letter comes the same day that Mr. Obama officially missed another deadline in the budget law by failing to submit his blueprint on the first Monday in February. The president has only met that deadline once in his tenure.

On the Medicare funding issue, federal law requires that if the program’s funding becomes imbalanced, its trustees are required to issue a warning, and the president is required to send Congress a plan to repair the finances.

Then-President George W. Bush did just that during his time in the White House, but Mr. Obama has never filed the submission.

By the way, let me apologize for being away from the blog all morning/afternoon. I had a real bout of insomnia last night. Around 5am, you've got problems. I wasn't able to doze until 7:30 or 8. This was compounded by the fact that around 5am I decided I'd just stay up all night so as not to sleep in, but then, at 7:30 or 8, I just conked out.

Let me ask a question. This keeps dogging me. I have had this problem with multiple phones -- if you're charging a phone overnight...

Wait, first question: Is it bad to charge a phone all night?

Anyway on to the next question: If you're charging a phone overnight, does that somehow conflict with its alarm wake-up function? I keep having these phones which seem to take the wake-up schedule as an advisory only. When I wake up, I see the alarm actually is on; but it's silent. The phone tells me to swipe to turn it off, but it's actually not on.
