Voters who disapprove of Congress should "throw out the bums" who create the conditions that voters despise, and should defeat do-nothing and obstruct-everything Republicans in Washington.
Controversial tactics are par for the course in politics. Businesses, including online dating sites, do not often make political statements to attract customers. Exceptions to every rule, however, exist.
Antitrust laws should be used to prevent larger healthcare organizations from stifling competition in local markets but large medical businesses competing on price, service and quality is what the country needs to lower healthcare costs.
Most who don't really understand technology have been speaking of the Obamacare website as if it only had two possible states: "broken" and "working." The truth is a little subtler than that. This could be a political disaster in the making -- a separate disaster than the initial rollout.
The goal of near universal health coverage still is right for the country, and in the absence of reasonable alternatives which accomplish the goal, we have to work with what we have. Thirty million uninsured depend upon it.
Bill Clinton's very clever statement is about one thing, and one thing alone: positioning Hillary Clinton in 2016.
It has been a week since the president's "sorry" but for now over five million Americans that lost their health insurance and are waiting for what comes after "sorry" and what leadership may follow.
Democrats are showing once again they have the backbones of banana slugs. The Affordable Care Act was meant to hold insurers to a higher standards. So it stands to reason that some insurers will have to cancel their lousy sub-standard policies.
In an effort to cynically score political points, the Republicans have taken up the cause of people who have received health insurance "cancellation" notices. The problem is that the Republicans aren't helping these people, they are exploiting them.

But make no mistake, there's no one to blame for ACA's current problems but Obama.
Karrie's plan covered her for two Band-Aids and a modest roll of gauze padding. "The third band-Aid, and any gauze over that initial roll, I would have to pay for," she said.
People are clamoring for heads to roll, and the president is talking about what just could be the geekiest, most obscure topic ever to clog a federal bureaucrat's inbox. Procurement reform? Has he gone off the deep end?
The real cost of the Democratic misstep is that it makes the next turn of the budget negotiations less predictable and more volatile.
Nothing in the health care reform law stops the increase in premiums, or how much the medical-industrial complex can bill your health insurance.
For most Europeans, the violence of the debate over the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (otherwise known as the "Obamacare") in the United Sates seemed quite puzzling.
Doctors and hospitals are businesses after all, and account for 50 percent of our health care cost (see chart below). Besides, what kind of business either doesn't know or won't tell you what it charges for standard goods or services? I ask this as a small business owner myself.
