Have you noticed the only time we hear about Obamacare any more is when we find something ELSE wrong with it? And even then, we have to go hunting for the story?
Gee, I wonder why…. (Courtesy of WTOP.com):
“Some families to be priced out of health overhaul”
WASHINGTON (AP) – Some families could get priced out of health insurance due to what’s being called a glitch in President Barack Obama’s overhaul law. IRS regulations issued Wednesday failed to fix the problem as liberal backers of the president’s plan had hoped.
As a result, some families that can’t afford the employer coverage that they are offered on the job will not be able to get financial assistance from the government to buy private health insurance on their own. How many people will be affected is unclear.
The Obama administration says its hands were tied by the way Congress wrote the law. Officials said the administration tried to mitigate the impact.
Whoa, whoa, whoa…. Hold on a second, Sparky. What did that say?
“The Obama administration says its hands were tied by the way Congress wrote the law“….
Incredible: President “Present” strikes again.
This is a joke, right? C’mon: it was Obama’s ‘Historic Accomplishment’! He championed Obamacare through HIS Democrat controlled House and HIS Democrat Senate without so much as a single Republican vote for it during final passage. He crisscrossed the country in support of it, for a year.
But his “hands were tied”? That’s pathetically spineless, even for Obama.
One of the very first posts we ever did here concerned folks who take their appreciation for cuisine to a level to which I simply can’t relate.
I mention it because I recently was privy to a conversation where two such people were complaining to each other about the lack of locally available Arame (it goes on a salad, I guess?) and then began trading superlatives over the palatability of something called Bottarga (no clue…). When one of them began to discuss how Haggis was literally wrecking their marriage, I left the room.
Hey, I’m a simple guy with simple tastes. If food does it for you, knock yourself out. It’s only when it starts to ruin other people’s lives that I have to draw the line.
Which is what made me think of this post from last April. And so, here it is:
Let’s get it straight who I’m talking about first. Not “foodies”: Food FREAKS. Cause I’m definitely not referring to your normal, everyday person who just likes food, or really good food, …or even kinda weird food (e.g. my Bottarga aficionados above).
I couldn’t care less if somebody DVR’s the Food Network during the day, or if their kitchen looks like it’s ready to handle tonight’s dinner crowd at the Four Seasons.
NOT my kitchen (…just in case you were wonderin’...)
