The fiasco that has become Obamacare should remind all of us, particularly the mayor-elect of New York, of the perils of big ideas and good intentions.
For Your Health
We received the letter in the mail a couple months ago. The good people at Regence Bluecross Blueshield were pleased to inform us that due to Obamacare, our current low monthly premium and comically high deductible medical policy would no longer exist come January 1, 2014.

If you are a beautiful woman between the ages of 18 and 23 who desperately needs that staph infection looked at but can’t afford health insurance, than let SeekingArrangement.com help!
The website that promotes “beneficial” friendships between (mostly) older men and younger women has launched a new campaign on the basis of what they claim to be the large influx of women who have signed up for their services recently looking for help covering healthcare. (We guess they need to adapt to the changing concerns of America.)
As a frequent world traveler, I’ve had occasion to seek medical treatment in Croatia, Australia, the Philippines, Singapore, and France. I was always treated right away, treated well, and handed surprisingly low bills. Why can’t we get it right? These experiences as well as my “liberal” leanings, make me an unabashed supporter of the Affordable Healthcare Act.
The rocky launch of President Barack Obama’s signature health care law may be generating front-page headlines and criticisms from all corners, but Mayor Michael Bloomberg thinks everyone should wait before judging.
Mayoral front-runner Bill de Blasio may be 50 points ahead in the polls, but that isn’t stopping him from hitting his Republican rival, Joe Lhota, whenever he sees an open shot.

Alex Jones is the host of a conservative radio talk show out in Dallas, Texas, where he routinely spouts his (sane) beliefs that NASA is killing off thousands of astronauts and (obviously) faked the moon landing. As such, you can imagine how he feels about Obamacare.
Although he condemns his party’s federal representatives for the partial government shutdown currently gripping Washington, Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota today endorsed one of their top demands: delaying the individual health care mandate.
“It should be delayed for one year,” Mr. Lhota flatly said this morning in a WNYC radio interview with Brian Lehrer.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg continued to blame Republicans for the partial federal government shutdown this morning, again urging members to compromise and give Obamacare a try.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg trashed Washington Republicans today for pushing the country to the brink of a partial government shutdown in their effort to block President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law.
“This is an outrage. They cannot hold the country hostage to what is just plain and simple politics,” Mr. Bloomberg declared at an unrelated press conference this morning, raging at the concept of negotiating policy issues with the threat of shutting down the federal government.
