Ann Coulter returns

Tout ça pour vous Monsieur le Président

In the current fight over the government shutdown, Republicans are simply representing the views of the American people.

Americans didn't ask for Obamacare, they don't want it, but now their insurance premiums are going through the roof, their doctors aren't accepting it, and their employers are moving them into part-time work -- or firing them -- to avoid the law's mandates.

Contrary to Obama's promises, it turns out: You can't keep your doctor, you can't keep your insurance -- you can't even keep your job. In other words, it's a typical government program, but this one wrecks your health care.

Also, the president did raise taxes on the middle class in defiance of his well-worn campaign promise not to. Indeed, Obamacare is the largest tax hike in U.S. history.

Among the other changes effected by this law are:

  • Obamacare will allow insurers to charge 50 percent higher premiums for smokers, but prohibits insurers from increasing premiums for those with HIV/AIDS.
  • Nationally, Obamacare will increase men's individual insurance premiums by an average of 99 percent and women's by 62 percent. In North Carolina, for example, individual insurance premiums will triple for women and quadruple for men.
  •  Health plans valued at $27,500 or more for a family of four will be taxed at a rate of 40 percent.
  •  No doctors who went to an American medical school will be accepting Obamacare.
  • A 62-year-old man earning $46,000 a year is entitled to a $7,836 government tax [Full Wonderfulness]
Why should you have this in your wallet?  Because this is the prevailing argument that even my local rag presents as factual re the CR showdown:

Our say: Government keeps digging holes, then falling in

With important issues stacked up on its docket, Congress has so far spent October allowing the federal government to shut down for lack of a continuing budget resolution. This happened because a minority of hotheads in the House of Representatives had the absurd idea that they could force President Barrack Obama to back down on the health care law that is his signature accomplishment. ...
Giving meaning to the "LoFo" meme

what on earth is a LoFo?

"Last On, First Off" - ie a stack operation, eg cartridges in a magazine - Ok, but that means what exactly in this context? Caught the bandwagon at the last stop before it went over the cliff? Which would mean ... now even this guy is beating up on the Tea Party?

Not much of a meme, especially since "et tu, Brute" means the same and has been around forever.
