Monday news

Insurance: On Friday, the House passed a bill designed to restore the president’s broken promise and allow Americans to keep or renew their old health insurance plans. But one day before the scheduled House vote, the president announced his attempt at an administrative fix. To whatever extent the president’s administrative move actually fixes the problem, it’s still only temporary. 

Healthcare chaos: Nancy Pelosi offered her thoughts on the chaos surrounding the healthcare law. More than 5 million Americans have lost their health insurance due to new regulations. But on Meet the Press Sunday, Pelosi denied that Obamacare is to blame.

Iran talks: As the US and several other nations continue talks with Iran aimed at ending the country’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, Israel’s Prime Minister is renewing his warning not to ease up on the rogue regime. Benjamin Netanyahu states that, “Iran is giving practically giving away nothing. It’s making a minor concession, which they can reverse in weeks.”

Legal Docket: Lesser known cases before the Supreme Court

TW&E legal-affairs correspondent Mary Reichard provides a run-down of the most recent cases heard by the Supreme Court. The docket included a whistleblower case, a few criminal cases, and a case involving casinos and unions. 

United Methodist bishop may face church trial after performing homosexual wedding

The United Methodist Council of Bishops has asked two of its members to file a formal complaint against Bishop Melvin Talbert. Bishop Talbert, from California, officiated last month at same-sex wedding in Alabama.

The charges are likely to include officiating at homosexual-union ceremony and undermining the ministry of a fellow bishop. Both are violations of the denomination’s Book of Discipline.
