Happy new year everyone. I hope all have a fun night and remain safe. If you get too bored I hear the golfing is really nice in Hawaii right now. One less asshole hitting the links.
I hope everyone has a great day filled with love and joy while celebrating with their family and friends. I even extend this to those on the right, with whom we spend the rest of the year butting heads.
And a very special Merry Christmas to Eric Erickson of Red State, who has apparently really lost religion since he has decided to spend the holiest night of the year on Twitter questioning the spirituality of the left.
And also Andrew Breitbart, who apparently has nothing better to do on Christmas Eve than talk about perverted sexual activities.
Enjoy the day because starting tomorrow we start the fight to fix the FPL, which will translate into even better health care reform.
If all these Senators decided not to have multiple big, colorful charts for every speech then we could fund universal health care for the entire nation.
If I make only 140% of the FPL and the Medicaid cut off is 133% of the FPL, then wouldn’t it make financial sense to try and make a little less per month and get Medicaid instead of paying for insurance?
From David Waldman via Ezra Klein:
The problem with leaving the decision up to the states, he says, is that it doesn't go far enough. "I think states should leave the abortion question up to the counties," he explains. "Then I think counties should leave the abortion question up to municipalities. Then the neighborhoods should leave the abortion question up to each block." And each block, as you might have guessed, should leave the abortion question up to each household.
Funny how conservatives always talk about keeping government out of our lives, yet when it comes to the lives of women they want the government very much in it.
