Nobody’s shooting yet, but I’ll bet Barbara Tuchman would appreciate Robert Kuttner’s headline. Kuttner does a good job summarizing Democratic stupidity regarding the debt deal, and of explaining why our government, in its current form, is in worse shape than those of most European democracies.
Do you spend a lot of time logged in and looking for the truth? Could be you’re searching in the wrong places, or at least on the wrong sites. Try God’s Blog, and don’t forget to tell him what you think of his work.
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) has rejected more than $9 million in grants from the Affordable Care Act that would have “focused on fighting drug and alcohol abuse; assessing health impacts of public policies; and signing up state residents who qualify for state health programs.”
The next county down has the state record for number of beer cans in the ditches per mile for the country, or something. And they think it’s something to be proud of. A friend who signed up for Badger Care Basic, or whatever the Medicaid buy-in is called, thought it was outrageously expensive at $135 a month; it’s now $250, and she hasn’t had a raise in that year-and-a-half.
The silver lining here is that every health-care provider in the state whole-heartedly agrees with me: Scott Walker is truly a jerk.
