Zealous Texas gun rights group may be shooting itself in the foot

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 02/06/2015 - 06:16
By Jon Herskovitz and Lisa Maria Garza AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Gun rights bills proposed for gun-friendly Texas and backed by a supportive Republican majority in the statehouse have hit a speed bump because zealous campaigning by a gun rights advocacy group has slowed momentum for the measure. The leader of Open Carry Tarrant County, criticized for extreme tactics that have alienated some gun rights supporters, came under further scrutiny this week for indirectly threatening death for those who did not approve a proposed measure allowing Texans to openly carry handguns in public. "These are our rights that they're playing with," Kory Watkins said in a video posted on Facebook.

IRS rehired hundreds of former workers with behavior problems: audit

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 02/06/2015 - 06:03
By Jason Lange WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Poor screening led the IRS to rehire hundreds of former employees with records of bad behavior including falsifying forms and unauthorized access to taxpayer information, an internal government watchdog found. Auditors found the Internal Revenue Service between 2010 and 2013 gave jobs to 323 former employees who had displayed unsavory conduct during prior stints at the agency, according to the U.S. Treasury's Inspector General for Tax Administration on Thursday. Among the 323, five of the rehired workers had "serious misconduct" issues, a category that includes threats and sexual harassment. "Based on the types of prior performance and conduct issues we identified, rehiring certain employees presents increased risk to the IRS and taxpayers," said J. Russell George, the inspector general for tax administration.

U.S. approves Medicare coverage for lung cancer screening

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 02/06/2015 - 05:55
U.S. health regulators on Thursday approved Medicare coverage for lung cancer screening by low-dose CT, the first time the government health insurance program for the elderly and disabled will pay for such a program of early detection in an effort to save lives. The decision applies to Medicare beneficiaries aged 55-77 who are current smokers or who quit within the last 15 years, and who racked up at least 30 "pack years." The latter is possible if they smoked one pack a day for 30 years, for instance, two packs a day for 15 or three packs a day for a decade. The coverage is effective immediately, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced, and applies nationwide.
