“Before anyone TELLS the insurers what they can/can't do, shouldn't they be at the table - with each state's Insurance Commissioner?”

“The companies were at the table during the writing of the regulations per the Federal Register; why the states were not involved not sure. So the gov't knew before based on input from the companies what was going to happen.”

“Had this headline read: "Father and son kiss, cry and try to make up", I wonder if the message of this program would lead to more families trying to reconnect.

I heard two, well spoken, hurting, intelligent young black men, trying to resolve their father/son conflict. I also saw how drug addiction is splitting families apart. I applaud Iyanla for trying.”

“Funny. When Alan Simpson and Erskine Bowles recommend cutting 'entitlements', it seems acceptable.

LaMonica Peters on Jun 18, 2013 at 16:49:46

“Gayle King anchored the news in Connecticut for 20 years while Oprah was in Chicago. Why can't she be offered the CBS Morning Show gig? She's earned her stripes but most people only know her as Oprah's best friend. Check your facts.”

“CNN and HLN should be sold. HLN, which I thoroughly enjoyed in its heydey, use to offer headline NEWS 24/7. Now, as a dumpster for reruns of old detective shows and one sided programming for one murder, it is officially the Nancy Grace/Anderson Cooper network.”

“Regretfully the people elected folks who can make noise but can't balance a budget, nor keep their hands out of the cookie jar. At least 2 were imprisoned (both black). More than a year ago, this same Mayor wanted the Governor to name HIM as the emergency financial manager. Next, Mr. Bing wouldn't meet with Council people to discuss significant budget trimming plans.”

“Ms. Warren has never run a business. Even at Harvard the housekeepers, guards and kitchen workers likely didn't make $10 hour, so why didn't she try the $22 narrative with her bosses there?

I guess it wasn't convenient - and it would have hurt her chances of being promoted. Again.”

Taurothar on Mar 19, 2013 at 13:56:17

“From what I'm understanding in the economic theory was only recently brought up and this is going against historical trends in economics. I imagine when she was at Harvard, the prevailing theories are what stated that as production increases wages will increase, and this new study is what goes directly against that.”
