Now For the Shaft

The News: Anthem Blue Shield of California has announced rate increases of up to 39%. Similar rate increases are being imposed by other insurance companies around the United States.

The Note: Of course this comes as a total surprise. Sen. Mitch Bitch O'Connell (Retard, Ky.) is left sputtering some incoherent nonsense about how the "free market" knows whats best, really, honest, because "over the long haul" it reduces benefits... uh... costs for everyone. True to form the Demorats will fail to seize the initiative, preferring instead to allow the Tea Bag Convention in Nashville to cite the premium raises as evidence of what's wrong the Big Gubmint.
