There's one more key point about Obamacare that I haven't heard anyone talk about, John: Insurance costs are based on statistics compiled by actuaries, who project future costs with formulae based on past costs. Because it costs more to insure male drivers than female drivers, for example, men have to pay more for car insurance...which is only fair. And since it costs more to insure females than males, women have always had to pay more for health insurance...which again is only fair. But Obamacare makes it illegal for an insurance company to charge women more than men for the same coverage...projected costs (and fairness) be damned. So that means that a woman who buys insurance via an Obamacare exchange will always pay less than her full fair price...while men who buy Obamacare insurance will always be required to pay MORE than their full fair share to help cover the slack given to females. So what that means is that...from this day forward...no woman (who buys healthcare via the Obamacare exchanges) can truthfully claim to be paying her own way in the world. No matter how militant a feminist she may be...no matter how loudly she may shriek that "I don't need no damn man to take care of me and pay my bills!"...or ..."I'm fully capable of taking care of my own damn self!"...it's all a crock. Because whether she likes it or not...if she's buying insurance via the Obamacare exchanges...she's NOT paying her full way in the world. And the government is making the men kick in a little extra to take care of the women because...after all...they're just girls. Amazing. You would think SOME feminists would oppose that just on self-respect and principle.
If the NSA is going to record our phone calls, I wish they would at least monitor the telemarketer calls to those of us on the "No Call" list and send those folks to federal prison.
I can't believe this guy fled to Hong Kong. If the Chinese State Security get hold of him, they'll bleed him for every single bit of info he can remember. They'll deny they have him, of course....or else they'll parade him around as someone who "fled to China for freedom". And sadly, I doubt he'll ever be free again.
Well OF COURSE you don't know, Mr. Holder. In order to find another attorney of your integrity and competence, one has to go down to the Mystic Knights of the Sea Lodge Hall and ask for Algonquin J. Calhoun.

Have to admit, Sandy is the best thing that could have happened for the president. Every single nickel of FEMA money has instantly been transformed into Obama campaign funds.
You make an excellent point, Mr. Hewitt...but I think Obama might still win on turnout. His campaign will get a lot of dead people to cast absentee ballots...especially in the battleground states...and that may just push him over.
How DARE she get caught like that. Didn't she get the "don't reveal this no matter what" memo?

Issa: Eric Holder Didn't Do His Job

Katie, I'm not sure Holder really didn't know about the operation. To believe that, we'd have to believe that the AG doesn't get regular briefings about big operations going on, especially a rather controversial operation like Fast & Furious. Also, does this mean that all the F&F documents will now be turned over to congress in answer to the subpoena? If not, it begs the same question that the Democrats have been asking about Romey's tax returns: If there's nothing wrong, then what are you trying to hide? I wouldn't be surprised if Weinstein wasn't just taking the blame for this, in exhange for a quid pro quo. He's only a year and a half from retirement...let's see if he ends up getting a tax-free "medical disability" retirement.

I have to agree with you, Katie. In the "War on Women," Ted Kennedy is the only politician whose record has a confirmed KILL.
