Lost her job and is sorry

Mea Maxima Culpa 
I see a recidivist

When voters fired her boss in the 2010 elections, she had to get another job and that meant she had to shop for health care, too. Three years ago, she got a plan that cost $225 a month with a $2,500 deductible. But then her health care company sent a letter a few weeks ago.

“Blue Cross,” she said, “stated my current coverage would expire on Dec. 31, and here are my options: I can have a plan with similar benefits for $647.12 [or] I can have a plan with similar [but higher] pricing for $322.32 but with a $6,500 deductible.”

She went on, “Blue Cross also tells me that if I don’t pick one of the options, they will just assume I want the one for $647. … Someone please tell me why my premium in January will be $356 more than in December?” …

“And I was excited that previously uninsured people could now get insurance on the open market. But this is not affordable to me.”

First, I am not invoking any  schadenfreude here; I feel sorry for her plight.  But, JFC!— why is she now (too late) sorry for her role in getting it passed?  Because SHE lost her job; because SHE will pay through the noseif she can afford itfor less coverage than she had before.  I don't hear her apologizing to the millionsyes millionswho have lost, or will lose their full time employment because of Obamacare.  She's just another kind hearted person who thought she,  and Liberals like her, have a responsibility to make me do what's best for me.  Because I am  just too selfish,  and too short-sighted to do what's right.  I would not bet that she's learned that lesson.  I see a recidivist.
  • Road to hell.

Public craves the Clinton's Honesty WTFF?

Meet The MNBC All-Stars

Night after night of the Living Dead 

MSNBC's RONAN FARROW: I think that they (the Clintons) represent a style of honesty that the public craves right now. And that's reflected in the numbers. I think people are tired of the old school politicking, and when a politician comes out and says, “Actually, I changed my mind, I've evolved on the issue,” that's something people are willing to embrace. [I am not making this up]

We are boys and girls living in an era of the walking dead. Did you see this?  Sean Penn: Ted Cruz Has Mental Health Problems And Should Be Committed?  

"I think they have -- there's a mental health problem in Congress. This would be solved by committing them by executive order, I think. Because these our American brothers and sisters, we shouldn't be criticizing them attacking that we should take their -- this is a cry for help."

Is there any doubt that these people believe this crap?  Committed by executive order?  Clintons represent a style of honesty that the public craves?  Stab me in the fricking liver!

Did Jarrett And Michelle Pick Incompetent Website Firm?

[...] George Schindler, CGI Group president for U.S. and Canada, became an Obama 2012 campaign donor after his company won the ObamaCare contract, a pattern we've seen in green-energy stimulus money going to companies like Solyndra.

As it happens, the Daily Caller reports that Michelle Obama's college roomie Toni Townes-Whitley, Princeton class of '85, is a senior vice president at CGI Federal, which earned the no-bid contract to build the $678 million ObamaCare enrollment website at Healthcare.gov.

There may be another Canadian connection as well.

Of course they did.  And their penalty will be ... zip.

How do you sound?

Today's Tip

If I were you; Haute Cuisine

Often times your mood will determine how well you receive a given movie (for me, anyway).  That said, Haute Cuisine falls into the category of "It don't matter what mood you're in; you'll love it.  Unless you are Mr. Juice, and can neither speak French, nor  abide subtitled movies.  (Trailer)

Maybe I was in the mood, but I just loved "if I were you."  Yeah, there were moments where I thought things were slipping away
like the protagonist constantly swigging from a bottomless bottle of boozebut then it would rebound.  It's rated "R," but I can't tell you why, in this climate of anything goes.  A few eff words; that's it.  (Trailer)

Bob Woodward: Obama administration "rat's nest of concealment and Lies"


They We need to review  this secret world and its power in their government because you run into this rats nest of concealment and lies time and time again then and now. "Face the Nation” Sunday. “You get to a point where it’s what do you worry about? Secret governments.” 

Woodward goes on to criticize Obamacare and he alludes to the amateurs working in the White House (who were selected by ideology and not previous success) as why the roll out was such a disaster. Woodward also alluded to the raid on the Osama bin Laden compound.

He pointed out that the operation was run by Leon Panetta [ahem], an experienced hand in dotting the i's and crossing the t's. It is a stark contrast to the way Obamacare was handled.
"Anyway, as I read the script, his real usefulness will be as a martyred president, ala JFK.  There's your Camelot.  Most likely at the hands of some right-wing fanatic, like Chuck Hagel."  11/27/2008
