NEW YORK (Reuters) – McDonald’s Corp may cut health insurance for its nearly 30,000 hourly workers unless U.S. regulators waive a requirement of new health care legislation championed by President Barack Obama, The Wall Street Journal reported.

“This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer.”-Will Rogers
This from the New York Magazine is just priceless:
That will fire up the base, won’t it? Is this the most tone deaf White House ever?
Ramirez, of course…
The president does not conduct himself in a sober and judicious manner and neither do those around him. On any given day he can slur Arizonans as wanting to round up innocents on the way to ice cream. He can slander police as stupidly acting stereotypers. The attorney general can call us cowards and swear without reading a bill that it profiles the innocent. Legitimate worry over a Ground Zero mosque translates into anti-constitutional efforts to stifle freedom of worship. Those with money — defined by an arbitrary annual income level of $250,000 — owe the rest of us their ill-gotten gains. Surgeons transmogrify into tonsil-loppers, insurers are greedy, investors are put back at the end of the creditor line; all are worthy of a boot on their necks and a kick in the ass.
Cannot improve on that.
So it’s the people’s fault the Democrats are in trouble, so John (ketchup) Kerry tells us.
“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,” Kerry told reporters after touring the Boston Medical Center yesterday. “I think a lot of the anger today – while it’s appropriate because Washington is broken – is not directed at the right people,”
Au contraire, my dear Kerry… It’s directed at exactly the right people – you foremost.
It never fails to amaze me how out of touch, arrogance, self-important and entitled these self-appointed mandarins are. Did it ever occur to them that the reason we are furious is because of them?
Kerry, is a tax dodging hypocritical golddigger. Now he insults our intelligence.
For some Californians, Boxer’s reliably liberal voting record may be reason enough to give her another six years in office. But we believe Californians deserve more than a usually correct vote on issues they care about. They deserve a senator who is accessible, effective and willing and able to reach across party lines to achieve progress on the great issues of our times. Boxer falls short on those counts.
“The nation has spent the last two years with dry heaves over the lefts’ position on these issues. It is the main reason why Democrats are getting kicked to the curb in November. Why then would the Chronicle think Fiorina should champion those positions the same way Boxer did? Wake up Chronicle, America doesn’t like left’s ideas on climate change (sham science), health care (socialism deluxe) or immigration (amnesty for all). It will be interesting to see where the other California papers place their endorsements.”
