The bill sucks a lot and keeps getting to suck more but in its current form it provides middle and low income people with billions in subsidies to help pay for coverage. Also, it eliminates the ability of insurance companies to refuse coverage for pre-existing conditions. CUrrently coverage can and usually is refused for disorders […]
OK so I’ve been thinking about this all day. First of all, a caveat: I may completely contradict opinions that I have held as recently as this morning. My mind often changes, but I’m just trying to figure this all out… aloud. If we blame the politicians, it gets us nowhere. Just about all of […]
I’m trying to put some closure (well not really closure- can’t think of a better word) on this topic because the debate among friends and acquaintances has gotten heated.

Clinton got a rousing reception from the human rights community, and seemed to take an uncharacteristically bright-line stance, in a recent statement on the Senate floor during […]
I have to say- I don’t pay any more attention to scandals like this then I do about Bradgelina or Reality TV. I don’t think the personal lives of politicians are important. I think how they vote and govern is far more important then how creepy they are. I see many libs doing the same […]
