Bill Clinton Adds to the Lies about Obamacare
Bill Clinton has joined the ranks of those lying about Obamacare. In a friendly conversation with reporters the other evening, Mr. Clinton extolled the healthcare omnibus for having already dampened rising healthcare prices. He claimed that the bill was responsible for producing “two years in a row of 4 percent inflation in healthcare costs. This is the first time in 50 years that healthcare costs have gone up so little.” He warned that slaying the Obamacare beast “would let inflation loose again.” The Fiscal Times

Boeing blasts Airbus' plan to assemble planes in Mobile
As Airbus nears a decision on building a new aircraft assembly plant in Mobile, the European company is under attack from an old nemesis: Boeing Co. Chicago-based Boeing released a statement today assaulting Airbus' plan and accusing the company of killing U.S. jobs. "While it is interesting once again to see Airbus promising to move jobs from Europe to the United States, no matter how many are created, the numbers pale in comparison to the thousands of U.S. jobs destroyed by illegal subsidies," the statement said. Airbus, a subsidiary of the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co., has tentative plans for a major announcement in Mobile on Monday, reportedly to unveil a proposal to assemble A320 aircraft at the city's Brookley Aeroplex.

BREAKING NEWS: N.C. Utilities Commission approves merger of Duke Energy, Progress
The North Carolina Utilities Commission announced its approval of the proposed merger between Duke Energy Corporation and Progress Energy Friday, according to a press release. The combined company will serve approximately 3 million customers in North Carolina. The Commission agreed largely with the recommendations of the Public Staff, an independent state agency representing consumers of regulated utilities, according to the press release. The merger guarantees at least $650 million in fuel and fuel-related savings to be allocated among utility customers and is expected to produce operating efficiencies to be reflected in future rates, the press release stated. “In light of consolidation now underway in the energy sector, we believe this merger will best serve the interests of the state, its taxpayers and energy consumers by keeping jobs here in North Carolina,” said Edward Finley, Jr., Chairman of the Utilities Commission.
