It's truly remarkable. Regardless of what your personal or ideological feelings are about ObamaCare's mandate and overall plan, there is no denying that the arguments among the Justices in this article: http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5jVI-5FrT9rnC_jcuPxybOarMs47w?docId=00c0c0d18d914f6a80d3a6d43431c7c3 make it clear that "constitutional law" is not the point of debate between the factions.
Will put it back soon. Need to restore from backup.
Recently, our own GoRight challenged my to a sparring match. It was part of a subthread that I instigated by lamenting that, essentially, Republicans suck . We both caught a bit of grief from B Rational about being hyperpartisan and biased, which resulted interestingly enough in our both attacking the purplebar, with I calling him a mealy-mouthed Broderite and GoRight attacking his condescension.
Obama has released his FY 2010 Budget , and there's a lot to digest in there. NPR has a helpful overview by department. My personal, overall impression is that there is some great stuff in there, but it is too big.
Y2hbjP Fantastic article.Really thank you! Really Cool.
I've always been reasonably healthy, don't need to visit the doctor much, and have never had major surgery. Consequently, my evaluation of our health care system mostly comes from second-hand reports: conversations with family and friends, articles in newspapers or magazines or blogs, statistics found online. The upside of this situation is that I have some detachment and perhaps a little more objectivity than I would otherwise, but the downside is that I am not personally confronted with the frustrating trade-offs that often characterize health care in the US and so I'm not required to think too deeply about them. That's changed now that I have a young child. We recently visited the ER (he's fine) and in the aftermath I found myself wondering about the competing incentives that drive decisions related to medical care, particularly in an urgent or emergency situation.

An article in the WaPo looks at a debate going on at the state level in RI over Medicaid spending. Its state budget bursting at the seams, the state legislature is embattled over what to do with Medicaid, which comprises about a quarter of state expenditures.

As many here at Swords Crossed are aware, I am a steadfast advocate for following the Golden Rule. So much so, in fact, that I assume that my political opponents are all honorable people who, themselves, likewise follow the Golden Rule. As such, I feel duty bound to treat Democrats and "liberals" the same way that they are treating people on my side of the political aisle. The logic being, of course, that since my opponents are following the Golden Rule that they must be treating me the way that they, in fact, want to be treated themselves.
I was surfing around the web looking for a piece of humor to mirror the satirical humor so often found on the liberal side of the web but from a right wing point of view. I found this piece from a random blogger who shall remain nameless on a website that shall likewise remain nameless, which fits the bill perfectly.
The author, not unlike myself, is angry about how cruel satirists can be when making their points. As such, the piece that follows targets left-wing satirists and their art by demonstrating the cruel realities of how their pieces are perceived by their political opponents.

How to Get Universal Health Care
Joel S. Hirschhorn
Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama say they believe in giving Americans universal health care. I don’t believe them. Anyone who takes the time to understand universal health care should conclude that only a simple single payer system will reform the current outrageous system that benefits the insurance and pharmaceutical industries.
The contorted plans from Clinton and Obama are not sufficient reforms. And what John McCain has proposed is sheer nonsense and by itself should cause any conscious American to avoid voting for him.
