GOP SUED FOR OBAMACARE REPEAL ‘FRAUD’

Republican donor from Virginia Beach sues GOP, accusing the party of fraud over failed Obamacare repeal

Bob HeghmannA retired attorney in Virginia Beach is so incensed that Republicans couldn’t repeal the Affordable Care Act he’s suing to get political donations back, accusing the GOP of fraud and racketeering. 

Bob Heghmann, 70, filed a lawsuit Thursday in U.S. District Court saying the national and Virginia Republican parties and some GOP leaders raised millions of dollars in campaign funds while knowing they weren’t going to be able to overturn the ACA, also known as Obamacare. 

The GOP “has been engaged in a pattern of Racketeering which involves massive fraud perpetrated on Republican voters and contributors as well as some Independents and Democrats,” the suit said. Racketeering, perhaps better known for use in prosecuting organized crime, involves a pattern of illegal behavior by a specific group.

The lawsuit lists as defendants the Republican National Committee and Virginia’s two national GOP committee members, Morton Blackwell and Cynthia Dunbar, as well as the Republican Party of Virginia and state party Chairman John Whitbeck. 

In an email, Blackwell dismissed Heghmann’s complaint as a “frivolous, nuisance suit that should be thrown out of court by any judge.”

In a separate email Dunbar sent to Blackwell that was forwarded to The Virginian-Pilot, Dunbar referred to it as “ridiculous.”

But at the same time, both said they understood where Heghmann was coming from. Blackwell said the suit is a “sign of conservative anger that the Republican-controlled Congress has not yet repealed and replaced Obamacare.”

He argued that “progressives” had taken over the Democratic Party and seemed to lament that “conservatives” had not yet taken over the Republican Party.

“Too few conservatives are willing to invest their time, talent, and money and personally participate inside the Republican Party,” Blackwell said. “A Republican majority will mean a conservative majority if and when a sufficient number of conservatives figure out why the success of their principles depends on their personal involvement in local, state and national Republican Party committees and in party nomination contests.”

A spokesman for the state party did not respond to a request for comment.

Could IRON protect you from heart disease?

Do all of our loved ones & friends KNOW ?

* Note: Taken from House Calls with Dr. Mark Stengler – 8/3/2017

When it comes to iron levels, think of Johnny Cash… and keep a close watch on that heart of yours.

Because a just-out study finds a direct link between iron levels and heart risk.

If you’re falling short in this mineral, then your risk of coronary artery disease jumps. But if you get what you need, that risk plunges.

The researchers are planning to test iron supplements for patients at risk of heart disease in their next study.

“It could well be the case that if their iron levels are low, we could give them an iron tablet to minimize their risk of cardiovascular disease,” lead researcher Dipender Gill of Imperial College London said in a news release.

And that is an excellent idea.

But this is where you have to make like the Man in Black and walk the line between too much and too little, so you can get just the right amount.

While it might be tempting to dash out and buy some iron supplements, that’s exactly what you SHOULDN’T do!

Iron is an essential mineral, and you DON’T want to fall short. But you also don’t want to start taking supplements unless you’re ACTUALLY low — since too much of this stuff can also be bad for you.

You have to make sure you’re actually low before you turn to supplements.

Even that’s not as easy as it sounds. Most docs only test circulating iron and not your stored iron (a.k.a. ferritin). Without both tests, it’s impossible to get a true sense of what’s going on.

If your doc runs those tests and finds you really are low, work with him on figuring out the best way to raise your levels. If you need a supplement, he can help calculate the best dose.

Usually, you can pick up an entire year’s supply for about $10.

But don’t stop there.

Low iron usually has a cause. In older folks, poor diet, certain health conditions, and even common meds can all sap you of your iron.

The same doc who tested your levels should work with you to figure out and fix that cause — and then test you again to see if you still need supplements or if you’re getting enough from diet alone.

In addition, be sure to get your iron from a wide range of sources. The best are meats, especially beef, pork, and poultry. You can also get iron from greens such as spinach — but since that form of iron is harder to absorb, you have to eat more of them.

Call it a good reason to include a nice, big salad with every meal.

God bless,

Dr. Mark Stengler
