If I came from Chicago, I would be careful about throwing those stones.
What is truly sad is that a large part of the GOP establishment will be secretly rejoicing if that happens. They certainly won't be trying to actually do anything to thwart or reverse it.
So true. Have to add that buses is the correct plural form of bus, while we're criticizing the article.
"Earnest argued that because people carrying Ebola don't have symptoms when they get on planes, there isn't a need to limit travel." In Washington, a city full of asinine statements, that one takes the prize. WTH?

I agree with Stossel on some of the fear mongering, especially when it relates to the children and zero tolerance for innocent behavior. Also agree that the "rape crisis" on campuses is absurd. However, those crime stats aren't always accurate, either. Chicago is one example of those in power juking the stats to make the city seem safe for visitors and residents. Also, the economy is in terrible shape for many Americans. Wages are going down, employers are switching jobs from full-time to part-time, unemployment is FAR higher than the federal stats indicate, and so is inflation. The middle class is being particularly hurt, while Washington seems oblivious to the real need for good jobs and policies that encourage the start of new businesses and the success of existing ones. There is an alliance between politicians and big corporations that stifles smaller business and is harmful to the taxpayer and consumer.

That "average age of death" includes those who died soon after birth, children dying of diseases now treated by antibiotics, etc. It doesn't mean that the average adult lived to be just under 50. I don't mean to be picking on you, but the way this type of statistic is used has always bugged me.
*and* better American
Without paying an arm and a leg? That only applies if you're a leech being put on the Medicaid form of Obamacare. And it's untrue, anyway; their access is limited greatly by being on Medicaid. Just look at all the complaints from California. That you would even claim this is a free market situation show how stupid you are. Being forced by the feds to buy a product is not only unconstitutional, but also the antithesis of a free market. And those illegals and poor are still using the ER, because they can't or won't bother to get in to see a doctor in his office. And if you're going to write the man's name, get it right: Ronald Reagan. He was a finer human being or better American than you will ever hope to be.
Consumers are being squeezed for every nickel by the big ISPs. I agree with Netflix on this and on the issue of net neutrality. The ISPs promise great things related to bandwidth when they're selling you on their (generally monopolistic) product. Then they don't deliver. They also are some are the world's most unresponsive companies when you have problems with their cable or internet service. I don't doubt for a minute that they will slow the speed at which movies from Netflix, Hulu, AmazonPrime or a number of other providers are delivered. They have their own (poorly competing) movies and cable programming to sell, you know.
No, as usual, you're not right...and barely literate, apparently.
Thanks for this summary of the unholy alliance between the health insurance industry and the Obama administration. I have little hope that the Republicans will deny these funds. They seem to be backing off their promises to repeal/defund Obamacare as if they're getting a payoff to do so, which is not an unlikely scenario. If they think they can gain favor with voters simply by saying they didn't vote for Obamacare, but then do nothing to end it, they are very mistaken!
