That's problem everywhere; broke people with nothing left to lose camping out in the ER waiting room, hoping not to die today.

Obamacare was designed to eliminate a big chunk of that through pooling the risk. It would be churlish to point out that it does so imperfectly and incompletely, since it's such a big step up from what came before. But not as churlish as nixing Medicare expansion because "freedumbs."

I'm sure Staple knows they're going to pay a little more to move those jobs to Taxachusetts, but productivity should rise when your average employee has a HS diploma and a year or two college as compared to one with a sixth-grade FL public school equivalency or a religious homeschool education.

No kidding. I remember him as one of those sane, articulate good-government types who just happened to have the rugged Western male good looks and medical degree. That's when I lived there back in the 90's.

Hook up with the wrong kinda crazytrain chick and the wheels fall off pretty fast.

This lady is just like my mom. Small, feisty, ancient, knocking back a few at dinner then napping her way through the primetime programming.

Just say "Yes, Mommy."

When asked about Rep. Perry's opinion, President Obama shrugged his shoulders and said, "I... I don't even... Basically the guy is a complete idiot. Maybe he drank too much fracking water? Pennsylvania might want to look into that."

(Just once, I'd like to see something like that in the national press. Just once.)
