Breaking: Mother Shot Dead by DC Police Thought ‘Obama was stalking her’

Authorities said the single-mother had a 'history of mental illness' but did not elaborate.


The Connecticut mother who shot by police yesterday after ramming a White House barrier with her young daughter in the car thought President Obama was stalking her, law sources said today.

Investigators have found indications that Miriam Carey suffered delusions due to a history of mental illness, NBC Connecticut reports.

She believed the President was electronically monitoring her Connecticut home in order to broadcast her life on television, sources said.


ABC News reports that Connecticut police had twice in 2012 been called by Miriam Carey's boyfriend, who reported the woman was delusional, acting irrationally and putting her infant daughter in danger.


These revelations are the first clues as to what led a seemingly happy dental hygienist to snap and drive her Infiniti luxury sedan 270 miles from her home in suburban Stamford to Washington, DC – where her rampage put the nation’s capital on lock-down Thursday.

Events Unfolded just after 2 p.m. today in Washington D.C. when the vehicle driven by an unidentified woman crashed into security gates at the White House sparking a furious chase that ended at the Capitol

Video: Shooting On Capitol Hill As It Was Happening

ObamaCare Exchanges: 7 Things You Need To Know



Here it comes, ready or not, enrollment in the ObamaCare Affordable Healthcare Exchanges has begun as of October 1.  You are required to sign up for a plan by March 31, 2014 if you don't get your insurance from your employer, Medicare, or Medicaid. 

How will I buy insurance through an exchange?

Each state, and the District of Columbia, will have a health insurance exchange online. Individual consumers will be able to go online and compare various insurance policies, pick a plan, and enroll.

Some states, like New York and California, will run their own exchanges, with insurance companies offering dozens of qualified plans, each with varying costs. Others, like Florida and Texas, will be run by the federal government. Still others, such as Illinois and Michigan, are partnering with the federal government to run their marketplaces.
 
For information on what your home state is doing, to find your exchange, and enroll if the federal government is handling the program in your state, you can log onto the federal government Website: HealthCare.gov and follow the prompts


What happens if you don't enroll in a health plan by the deadline ?

You will be required to pay a tax penalty next year to the IRS:

$95 per individual (or 1 percent of your income, whichever is greater), $285 per family.
 
$325 per individual (or 2 percent of income), $975 per family in 2015.

$695 per individual (or 2.5 percent of income) and $2,085 per family in 2016 and beyond.

After March 31, you can only apply for insurance if you experience a major life change, such as job loss, divorce, or birth in your family. The next open enrollment period (for 2015) will begin Oct. 15, 2014.

What if I don't have a computer? 
Toll-free call centers will be available, with trained experts, to detail your options and enroll you in health coverage.
 
For information, call 1-800-319-2596. The line is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
 
 
How can I find out if I qualify for a subsidy?
About 26 million Americans may be eligible for federal tax subsidies to help defray the cost of their insurance premium. Only qualified individuals who sign up for insurance through the exchanges will be able to receive the subsidies, which take effect next year.

If you earn less than 400 percent of the poverty level — about $46,000 for an individual; $90,000 for a family of four— you may qualify for a subsidies.  In example:
  • A family of four on the high end of the scale — with an annual household income of $88,200 — will pay a maximum of 9.5, which amounts to $8,379 per year for a health insurance premium, and the rest would be subsidized

  • On the bottom end of the scale, a family of four with an income of $29,327 will only have to pay 2 percent of household income — or $587 per year for the same plan that will cost the higher-income family $8,379.
Low income residents in about half the states that plan to expand Medicaid under Obamacare will also qualify for free or low-cost healthcare through the federal program for the poor. Applicants earning up to 133 percent of the poverty line — just under $30,000 a year for a family of four — who log onto HealthCare.gov will be directed to Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program.

What kinds of plans will be offered?

Insurers will offer four standardized plans designated as bronze, silver, gold, platinum. Each  plan will cover 10 categories of essential benefits, set by the federal government, such as emergency service, prescription drug coverage, preventive care, and mental health treatment, each will vary in cost:

  • Bronze plans: Offer the lowest amount of coverage , 60 percent of medical costs on average , but  will have the lowest premiums.



  • Silver: 70 percent of costs are covered.



  • Gold: 80 percent of costs are covered.



  • Platinum: 90 percent of costs are covered, but these plans will have the highest premiums.




  • What is the application process?

     
    The U.S. Department of Health and Humans Services has devised a three-page application for individuals to apply online or on paper.
    You will need to provide the following information:
  • Name and personal facts (address, Social Security number, date of birth).


  •  
  • Health status (pregnant, physical/mental conditions).

  •  


  • Employment status and household income level (using pay stubs or W-2 forms).


  • Current health insurance coverage (if any).


  • Permission to give an authorized representative or “navigator” access to application information.




  • What about small business Owners?
    Small businesses, those with fewer than 50 workers, will eventually be able to shop for coverage for their employees through the Small Business Health Options Program or SHOP, that is a part of the healthcare exchanges.

    The SHOP exchanges pool small employers together so they bargain with insurance coverage as a group. But there are some problems with the rollout of the SHOP exchanges.
     
    Federal officials announced that small businesses will not be able to enroll directly on Oct. 1, as planned, unless they work through an insurance agent. Officials expect the exchanges will be open to small businesses by Nov. 1.
     
    The Obama administration recently said it is delaying the full implementation of the SHOP program. In most states where federal officials are running the exchanges or operating them in partnership with the states, small businesses will not be able to provide workers with a choice of health plans as the law intended until 2015.

    What You Need To Know About The Government Shutdown



    Here are 8 facts you should know about the Government shutdown:

    It won't be the first time
    Since a new budgeting process was put into place in 1976, the U.S. government has shut down 17 times. Presidents Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan each dealt with six shutdowns during their terms in office, lasting anywhere from one day to 2 1/2 weeks.
    The last actual shutdown came in 1996 — though the government came close during budget negotiations in 2011.

    The last shutdown lasted three weeks
    The three-week shutdown that lasted from Dec. 16, 1995, to Jan. 6, 1996, ranks as the longest in U.S. history. As a result, about 284,000 federal workers were furloughed, and around 475,000 essential employees went without a paycheck, although they were eventually reimbursed.
    Some benefits for military veterans were delayed, and cleanup at more than 600 toxic waste sites was stopped. The government also shut down for six days in mid-November 1995, initially resulting in the furlough of 800,000 federal employees. The Congressional Research Service reported the shutdowns cost taxpayers a combined $1.4 billion.

    Only the "essentials"
    Only federal employees deemed "essential" would continue to come to work during a shutdown. Employees who qualify as essential include those involved in national security, protecting life and property and providing benefit payments. That means members of the military, border control agents, air traffic controllers, the FBI and the TSA are among those who would remain on duty. The president and members of Congress are also exempt from furlough and must decide which of their respective staff members to keep around during a shutdown.

    The checks are in the mail
    Social Security beneficiaries will still find their checks in their mailboxes and doctors and hospitals will receive Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements. However, if the government does not resolve the budget situation by Nov. 1, those entitlement program payments could be delayed by up to two weeks.

    Even in a shutdown, the Postal Service delivers
    One reason Americans will get their entitlement checks: A government shutdown would not hit the operations of the U.S. Postal Service. Government agencies that the Treasury Department does not directly fund, like USPS, would be relatively unaffected in the short term by a shutdown . Some postal employees would very likely face furlough, but it wouldn't be enough to completely close down the agency.

    National parks and museums? Forget it
    Have plans to visit a national park or go sightseeing in the nation's capital? You might want to cancel them. During the Clinton-era shutdowns, 368 national parks closed, resulting in the loss of 7 million visitors. In Washington, D.C., the public would be unable to visit the monuments and museums that millions of tourists flock to every year. The Capitol building would remain open, though.

    Visa and passport delays
    Those hoping to enter or leave the country during a shutdown would most likely experience some difficulty. The government was unable to process around 200,000 pending passport applications and a daily average of 30,000 visa and passport applications by foreigners during the 1995-96 shutdowns. This would result not only in a headache for would-be travelers but a loss in millions for the airline and tourism industries.

    Who would be blamed for a shutdown?
    Generally speaking, no one comes out looking good if the government shuts down. A Pew Research poll conducted Sept. 19-22 shows 39 percent of Americans would blame Republicans if a shutdown were to occur, compared with 36 percent who would fault the Obama administration and 17 percent who would hold both sides responsible. According to a Pew poll from a comparable period during the 2011 budget battle, the public spread the blame around nearly identically.
