Get The Word Out by Recording Artist Covan
PRLog (Press Release) - Sep. 17, 2013 - TAMPA, Fla. -- "I'm currently engaged in many activities revolving around today's most critical issues in America. As a recording artist I choose to use my talents for a greater purpose than myself. As a motivational speaker I educate and uplift people in a positive way based on my own enlightenment and experience. I have many values all which are positive, I understand that I'm NOT perfect and never will have all the answers. Like many I have a hard knock life back story to tell, but it's not a matter of what I been through it's a matter of how I overcame it. I say 'Never forget the past, for it is a reminder for the future.'; meaning you have to fail to succeed, but should learn from mistakes to not repeat them. I hold Jesus and God close and closer each day to my heart, with truth fueling my soul." ~ Covan Magee
Covan is looking forward to the launch of his new radio show "What do you stand for?" This show will be designed to expose the disinformation and lies fed to us every day. "What do you stand for?" will explain how the Bible and Revelations ties into the world today both culturally and politically. It will give listeners an opportunity and platform to discuss their concerns and ask questions. The show will be a perfect blend of discussions, conscious truth music and prayer. Unlike any other show Covan is not afraid to give a healthy dose of the Lord in his political discussions.
Covan Magee was born in Kings County, Brooklyn, NY and hails from Staten Island, NY. He has music in his blood, being the cousin of the legendary R & B group the Force Md's. He was formerly known as"Recording Artist Phantom" and "Phantom The Rapper." Covan had an epiphany and decided it was time for the "Rebirth" of Covan Magee and goodbye to Recording Artist Phantom. Covan is now focusing on getting serious messages to the fans in these turbulent times.
Covan is a jack of all trades but most call him a “messenger”. Covan is making a statement in the music industry, through his love of 90's music by keeping the sophisticated lyrical technique and flowing syncopations of jazz-hip hop alive in an era when commercial gangsta rap and auto tune is threatening to obliterate everything in its path. His literate, intelligent, nimbly performed rhymes and political consciousness certainly doesn't fit the fashions of the "moment," but he is determined to win a devoted audience.
Covan was discovered and currently managed by Michelle “Chella" Magee (wife) a former Warner brothers/Atlantic/Elektra records employee, currently Chairman & Publicist of Bullz Eye Entertainment Inc. Covan is also a partner and Vice President of Bullz Eye Entertainment Inc.

(Planet 12 Productions) & “Just Consider” produced by Toma Beats, both landing him on the critically acclaimed CBS “Studio 10 Morning Show” and the late night television show “ The Motown Maurice Show”,as well as a live performance at “The Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center (The Straz Center).”
In 2009, Covan's “Rookie of the Year” had been featured on popular mixtapes such as DJ Gemstarr’s “Inglorious Bastards” and DJ Whyking’s “Ghetto Muzik Vol. 2.”
In 2007 Covan's collaboration with Universal/50/50 Konvict Muzik artist “Qwes" single “Million Wayz" landed on Konvict Muzik Mixtape “On The Loose Vol. 2.”

Basically if you don't buy health insurance your going to be penalized for not having it. Who do you think will up hold this law, that's right a tax agent. Wrong on so many levels! ~ Covan Magee
In a victory for President Barack Obama, the Supreme Court upheld his signature health care law's individual insurance mandate in a 5-4 decision, upending speculation after hostile-seeming oral arguments in March that the justices would overturn the law. The mandate has been upheld as a tax, with Chief Justice John Roberts, a Bush appointee, joining the liberal wing of the court to save the law. The court's four liberal justices agreed that the individual mandate should be upheld as part of Congress' power to regulate interstate commerce, but Roberts disagreed, and wrote that the mandate is actually a tax, despite the Obama administration's reluctance to describe it that way during the bill's passage. In its argument to the court, the government left open the possibility that the mandate is a tax, but did not rely much on that argument. Under the law, people who do not have health insurance will have to pay 1 percent of their income to the IRS starting in 2014. (There are exceptions for some religious beliefs and financial hardship.)
"If an individual does not maintain health insurance, the only consequence is that he must make an additional payment to the IRS when he pays his taxes," Roberts writes. He adds that this means "the mandate is not a legal command to buy insurance. Rather, it makes going without insurance just another thing the Government taxes, like buying gasoline or earning an income."
A footnote flagged by SCOTUSblog's Amy Howe explains the reasoning further. "Those subject to the individual mandate may lawfully forgo health insurance and pay higher taxes, or buy health insurance and pay lower taxes. The only thing that they may not lawfully do is not buy health insurance and not pay the resulting tax."
Justice Anthony Kennedy, usually the court's swing vote, dissented, reading from the bench that he and three conservative justices believe "the entire Act before us is invalid in its entirety." In a 65-page dissent, he and Justices Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito dismissed Roberts' arguments, writing that there is a "mountain of evidence" that the mandate is not a tax. "To say that the Individual Mandate merely imposes a tax is not to interpret the statute but to rewrite it," they write.
Twenty six states sued over the law, arguing that the individual mandate, which requires people to buy health insurance or face a fine starting in 2014, was unconstitutional. Opponents cast the individual mandate as the government forcing Americans to enter a market and buy a product against their will, while the government countered that the law was actually only regulating a market that everyone is already in, since almost everyone will seek health care at some point in his or her life.
Before oral arguments in March, polls of Supreme Court experts and scholars showed that most believed the mandate would be upheld as an exercise of Congress' power to regulate interstate commerce. But after justices seemed deeply skeptical of the mandate in oral arguments in March, the consensus flipped, with most experts guessing the court would strike down the law.
House Republicans have vowed to repeal the entire law, though it's unlikely the Democratic-controlled Senate would let that happen, and this decision may slow momentum for that move. "Today's ruling underscores the urgency of repealing this harmful law in its entirety," House Speaker John Boehner said in a statement.
Though the sweeping, 1,000-page plus law passed more than two years ago, much of it will not go into effect until 2014. That's when states will have to set up their own health insurance exchanges, Medicaid will be expanded by 16 million low-income people, and Americans will have to buy health insurance (for many, with a government subsidy) or pay a penalty of 1 percent of their income to the IRS. Employers who have more than 50 employees and don't offer insurance will also begin to face a penalty. Insurers will no longer be able to turn away people with preexisting conditions, or charge people higher premiums based on their gender or health.
An estimated 32 million uninsured people will gain coverage under the law.
Many of the more popular provisions of the law have already gone into effect, including a regulation saying insurers have to let children stay on their parents' plans until they are 26 years old, which 2.5 million Americans have already taken advantage of. Insurers can also no longer turn away children with preexisting conditions, and sick uninsured people can buy coverage in high-risk pools set up by the government.
Despite this intentional front-loading of consumer friendly, popular provisions of the law, the American public is pretty evenly split on the law's benefit. Slightly more people wanted the Supreme Court to strike down the law than uphold it in a recent poll.Source: Liz Goodwin Yahoo News
