- Ex-Tyco CEO Kozlowski says he stole out of pure greed
By Karen Freifeld NEW YORK (Reuters) - Disgraced ex-Tyco International Ltd chief executive Dennis Kozlowski, who was granted parole this week after serving an eight-year prison sentence, said simple greed had led him to steal more than $150 million from the company, a transcript of a parole board hearing released Thursday showed. "It was greed, pure and simple," the 67-year-old former executive told a New York State parole panel at a December 3 video conference hearing. "I feel horrible ... I can't say how sorry I am and how deeply I regret my actions." The panel granted Kozlowski's parole bid on Tuesday and he is scheduled to be formally released on January 17.

- Republicans stake out new attacks on 'Obamacare'
With President Barack Obama mounting a weeks-long offensive supporting the rebooted health care website, Republicans are lining up their own pre-election campaigns attacking the controversial law as disastrous for Americans. Aside from continued legal challenges to the Affordable Care Act, critics are broadening their arsenal in the battle against the three-year-old law, as they expand on the debacle of the Healthcare.gov rollout to keep the controversy alive in the minds of voters. The continued war on Obamacare will be played out across the airwaves and in congressional hearings -- especially on the campaign trail, with top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell saying the health care law will likely be "the premier issue" of the 2014 congressional elections. "You're going to hear about Obamacare from the Republicans for the next year, and you will hear about the government shutdown from the Democrats for the next year, and those competing messages and competing images for the Republican Party are what are going to shape people's choices in 2014," Duke University political scientist David Rohde told AFP.
