( PHOTOS: Republicans on how to fix the GOP ) This tactic is vehemently opposed by Republicans like Rove, who believe the strategy will result in the GOP being blamed for a government shutdown and hurt the partys electoral aspirations nationwide. Lee sought Monday to move the debate away from the shutdown theatrics, instead putting forth a strategy in which the GOP-controlled House passes a bill funding the government that contains a rider from Rep. Tom Graves (R-Ga.) that defunds the Affordable Care Act. Lee then said the tables would be turned on Senate Democrats to make the shutdown decision. Would they choose to shut down government? Lee asked of Democrats. Or do the right thing? ( Also on POLITICO: Karl Rove on 2016: Joe Biden gets in ) But Rove said theres not a single Democratic vote in the Senate for such a strategy and demanded Lee suggest Senate Democrats who could be turned to to defund the law. Lee responded that he wants to lock down Republicans first.

firms are, indeed, using relatively more part-time employees and more than usual, historically as seen in the graph Ive created (below), drawing on official U.S. data. Of course, theres somecyclicalityto this ratio: part-time jobs tend todecreaseas a share of total employment during expansions and tend toincreaseamid recessions. Part-timers were just 18% of all U.S. employees before the recession of 2007-2009, but increased to more than 21% at the end of the recession. Even the sharp rise in the ratio during the recession seems excessive and is attributable, partly, to ObamaCare. After all, Mr. Obama was elected in 2008 and early versions of his scheme were passed in Congress in mid-2009.

The limit on out-of-pocket expenses was not to have exceeded $6,350 for an individual and $12,700 for a family, however, the New York Times reports , federal officials placed a one-year delay on these caps providing insurers the ability to set their own limits in 2014. The delay was noted on the Department of Labors website since February, however, as the Times notes, it went unnoticed until now. In 2009, Obama touted the provision to cap out-of-pocket expenses. Well place a limit on how much you can be charged for out-of-pocket expenses, because no one in America should go broke because they get sick, Obama said in an August 2009 weekly address; asentiment Obama repeated that September before a joint session of Congress, the Times reported. An unnamed senior administration official explained the delay to The Times by saying that companies need to upgrade their computer systems. We knew this was an important issue, the official said. We had to balance the interests of consumers with the concerns of health plan sponsors and carriers, which told us that their computer systems were not set up to aggregate all of a persons out-of-pocket costs. They asked for more time to comply. The revelation comes at a tenuous time for the administration as it tries to keep the ball rolling in preparation for the opening of the health care exchanges on Oct.

Heres his key graph: Source: Christopher J. Conover, American Enterprise Institute There are two big problems with it. First, his method of comparison is susceptible to creating extreme values. Second, the data set Conover uses, the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ ” household survey ,” is far too volatile to draw reliable conclusions from small samples. Conover takes the number of new part-time jobs created over a six-month period, divided over that period’s new full-time jobs. Here’s the problem: If the number of new full-time jobs created is close to zero, it doesn’t much matter how many part-time jobs are created — the ratio will still be enormous. Sure enough, the household-survey data Conover uses reports unusually slow full-time job growth since January: only 130,000 positions, versus 557,000 part-time ones. But this is just regular volatility in the household-survey data, and its not common practice among economists to rely on the household survey for just that reason.

Exchange officials are hopeful an education campaign using direct mail, billboards, churches and social media such as Facebook and Twitter can help them overcome doubts about participating. “There is an independent spirit of Idahoans, and we are rising to the challenge,” Amy Dowd, the exchange executive director, says in her office across from the Capitol. The office is so new that the sign on the front door is written on 8-by-10 paper, the cream-colored walls are bare, and printers sit in their boxes. Working with a $20 million federal planning grant, the exchange has plenty to do to be ready to open for enrollment Oct 1, with coverage to take effect Jan. 1.
