An Illinois teen has been arrested on suspicion of trying to detonate a car bomb in front of a Chicago bar, authorities said Saturday. The device was inert and had been supplied by an undercover agent. Adel Daoud, 18, was charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and to damage and destroy a building with an explosive, authorities said. He could face life in prison if convicted. According to the U.S. attorney's Office in Chicago, Daoud in October began sending emails with information about “violent jihad and the killing of Americans.” The emails, some of which were sent to him, included information about jihad, the Taliban and Anwar Awlaki, the radical American cleric who was killed by a U.S. drone, according to a complaint filed in federal court Saturday.

Congressional Republicans are so obsessed with the idea of repealing any or all of "Obamacare," they don't seem to care about the potential harm that might inflict on their constituents. The latest example comes from Tennessee Republican Reps. Phil Roe and Scott DesJarlais (both of them physicians), who introduced a resolution aimed at denying lower-income Americans in more than two dozen states, including their own, the subsidies the bill provides for health insurance. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act requires virtually all adult Americans to obtain coverage, starting in 2014.
