After all, about 5 percent of the country will find itself in the same boat as my mom… Surely, they must be mad enough to come out and vote against Democrats… The sad fact is that’s simply not true. As I’ve been saying for a couple of years now, American politics has turned into...

Conversation with my mom

Here in Washington state, the state-run Obamacare health insurance exchange will actually allow you to sign up for an insurance plan. But that doesn’t change the fundamental problems with Obamacare, including a one-size-fits-all approach to insurance.

So I had to have the following conversation with my mom:

Me: Mom, you know how you pay $319 a month for your health insurance? With a $10,000 deductible?
Mom: Yeah…
Me: Well, starting January 1st, you won’t be able to do that anymore. Your plan is going away. The closest plan to that is a “Bronze” plan, with a $557 premium per month, and a $6,350 deductible. So your premiums are going up by about $250 per month.
Mom: But why? I don’t buy my insurance from the government! I buy it from a private company! How can Obama tell me what I can buy??

Indeed. I told her to ask her friends, who’d been touting Obama in 2012.

Gold is happy

The opposition party has just been vanquished. We’ll have permanent deficits and a continually growing entitlement-class majority. The media will eviscerate anyone who even suggests a modicum of fiscal responsibility. And Zimbabwe Janet will be at the printing presses, monetizing as much debt as she needs to keep the Ponzi going. Gold is happy.

Obama regime throws shutdown temper tantrum, takes down agency web sites

This is just pathetic. They actually paid someone to take down the FCC web site and put up a childish temper tantrum page just to make sure that everyone knows that somebody somewhere is horribly inconvenienced by the shutdown? WAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!! We’re taking our web site and going home! WAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!!!!

Washington shuts down, stock futures mildly positive. As they should be. Ever get the feeling the partisan media is pushing an agenda with its shutdown hysteria?
