Russia bans congressman, 12 other Americans

Rep. Jim Moran, D-Va. speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington.
 
In a statement Saturday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said congressman Jim Moran, a Democrat from Virginia, was banned in response to the July 2 U.S. ban on Russian parliament member Adam Delimkhanov. He said Moran had been repeatedly accused of financial misdeeds but didn't elaborate.
The other 12, including Guantanamo commander Rear Adm. Richard Butler and Lynndie England, a former soldier convicted of abusing prisoners in Abu Ghraib, were banned in response to the United States' adding 12 names in May to the so-called Magnitsky List of Russians sanctioned for human rights abuses.

Retired Brig. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, who commanded U.S. ground forces in Iraq in 2003-2004, retired Col. Janis Karpinsky whose command included the Abu Ghraib prison, and Gladys Kessler, a federal judge who rejected a Guantanamo inmate's complaint of being force-fed while on hunger strike, were also included.

Boehner Will Sue Obama Over Obamacare Employer Mandate

Boehner Will Sue Obama Over Obamacare Employer Mandate: Speaker of the House John Boehner announced Thursday that he’ll file a lawsuit against President Barack Obama for breaking the law in his implementation of Obamacare’s employer mandate. Boehner revealed last week that House Republicans planned to sue the president for abuse of executive power, but
failed to specify in what department, leaving many to speculate that the case would center around the heath care law’s piecemeal implementation or executive action on immigration. Boehner said Thursday, “In 2013, the president changed the health care law without a vote of Congress, effectively creating his own law by literally waiving the employer mandate and the penalties for failing to comply with it. That’s not the way our system of government was designed to work. No president should have the power to make laws on his or her own.”??

404 Memphis police officers call in sick

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Memphis police say more than 400 officers have called in sick in the past week in what appears to be a deliberate action to protest planned health care cuts.
Memphis Police Department spokeswoman Karen Rudolph said Monday that 404 officers have called in sick since June 30, an increase from 308 officers who had called in sick through Sunday. The department has about 2,280 officers.

According to The Commercial Appeal (http://bit.ly/1qNFtxQ), Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong said Sunday that the actions come in an apparent protest to a City Council vote that will reduce health care subsidies for city employees so that the funds can be redirected to the city's troubled pension fund.
Because of the number of officers out, the Shelby County Sheriff's Office is helping patrol the city.
