No one should miss Charlie's latest at PJM - it is fantabulist!

Pofarmer

Also do we know what provisions will sunset, if any?


Hahahaha, hhahahah. Hahahahah.

Arrrgggghhhhhh.

Yeah, right.

Jane

Don't you mean "free viagra"?

I do - and yesterday I tweeted the name of every democrat who voted for this. And I posted them all on You Too. NOthing gets the left angrier because it is just too hard to explain.

There is a REASON we didn't become Europe, and that reason is still true: We have a solid core of "don't tread on me" folks, people who value their independence & adulthood, people who don't take handouts, people who do not submit to their "betters."

I don't know if I agree with this. Sure, there are a large number of freedom lovers, but I think it's just taken this long to whittle away at the Constitution to the point that it's no longer a major impediment. The strategy has been obvious, relentless and effective. And there are a hell of a lot fewer of those "solid core" people left, besides.

Unfortunately, we also tend to be nice, which isn't particularly helpful in this case. A lot of folks just want to be left alone to raise their families.

I don't think people realize how this legislation fundamentally reorganizes the citizens relationship with Government in America.

They've effectively hollowed out the constitution with promiscuous use of the Commerce Clause, bypassed the amending function through the Courts, and watered
down the idea of moral and civic education.

I kind of agree with Ext but would love to be proven wrong. We've endured a steady stream of opinion makers castigating us for not being more like Europe; hell, the first time I went to France I felt like I was in paradise but none of the underlying reasons had anything to do with their system of governing. Much more pernicious will have been the undermining of the Constitution in the education system imo.

Janet

Libs hate children.

Captain and narciso, I really agree. LUN is a copy of a letter sent by Ron Weddington (co-council in Roe v Wade) to Clinton. He is advocating for the abortion pill RU486. What is eyeopening is his thoughts on humans.
It is chilling to "hear" leftists talk when they think they are among friends.

Children are a responsibility...leftists don't like responsibility. No one and nothing is more important than themselves.

"intergenerational intimacy"

...and this maybe explains why the left is BFF with Islam. The pedophilia is a big thing within Islam too.

Thanks scott for the update! Interesting that the insurance companies take the hit for covering pre-existing conditions, but the government collects the penalties for non-compliance. I think the insurers will lose out in the long (medium?) run as employers and individuals decide the penalty is a better bet than the escalating costs of keeping the health plans.

MayBee

Welcome to the periwinkle club, hit!!

Captain Hate

Janet, I'm not sure what's more shocking: The content of Weddington's letter (btw, I'm kind of surprised that anybody with a sense of reality would actually send that or allow it to see the light of day) or some of the idiots that commented on it. And yes, you get it on what underlies the left's attitudes on children; although I'd add self-loathing based upon an ineradicable feeling that what they're doing is wrong.

Does anyone NOT think they aren't going to actively push abortion with these "boards". Well, Mr. and Mrs. X, you're tissue mass has abnormality XXXXXX so we are going to just have to terminate this gestation. Better luck next time.

Porchlight

Not that overtly perhaps, Po, but maybe they will raise out-of-pocket costs for prenatal care, delivery and all future child health care if parents decide to go ahead with the pregnancy. "Sure you can have that kid, but it's gonna cost ya."

Porchlight

Re: the above, I'm talking about the price the exchanges will set for the cost of a health plan for a disabled child - not what the insurance companies will do, if they're still in business by then that is.

Pofarmer

Oh, now, C'mon,they wouldn't deny coverage would they?

Janet

That letter came to light from a Judicial Watch FOI request. It is in a big PDF file on their site. And this - although I'd add self-loathing based upon an ineradicable feeling that what they're doing is wrong.
I totally agree.
They try to normalize their behavior in the public realm so they don't feel bad/guilty.

Great comments at Ace. Love the no frills truth.

scott

No problem porch and God bless. See ya on the flip side!

Janet

If this monstrosity isn't stopped, and you know anyone with disabled/special needs children or infants that are having a hard time, call my church. We have a big ministry for special needs kids. All kinds of help - that it is a privilege to give.
It is McLean Bible Church in Virginia.

If the libs don't want these kids...well, we do.

Pofarmer

Porch, I'm looking at the worst case scenario here(I hope) and it ain't good. The insurers aren't going to be able to cover anything the Fed's don't want them to cover. What do you think the 150 "Health care boards" are all about?

narciso

With Zeke Emmanuel, John Holdren and the rest of this clique of mad scientist, nothing is too ludicrous, frankly

Sue

If that Weddington letter is not satire, then there are some very creepy, not to mention, highly uneducated, lawyers out there. Surely it is a hoax.

Janet

No Sue...it is no hoax. Judicial Watch FOI request for RU486. It is at the end of a long PDF file (I found it reprinted at the sntjohnny.com site just to do a LUN).
I printed it off years ago and have it tucked in my book The Party of Death.

narciso

No, it's too close to what they actually think, Von Hoffman making the case for abortion on crime prevention grounds, same
for the Freakanomics guys, Holdren's real
views as well as Obama's gaffe; as Kinsley defined as inadvertently telling the truth

Sue

It appears it is not a hoax. Sweet, merciful heavens.
