Ransom can stay in D.C. with all the other beltway snobs.- Thank Goodness: Obamcare Saves Home Prices in DC Again

Dear Comrade Gosh,

Hate to disappoint but I don’t live in D.C. I live in flyover country with the rest of the great unwashed. And every time an owl farts sideways out here liberals from the east coast blame it on global warming

Obamacare “passed” a long time ago. And you know what the great thing is? Democrats get to defend it between now and the November elections. This is gonna be good. Because that plan worked out so well for Democrats in 2010.

I love when weasels get caught in a trap and have to weasel their way out. You all weaseled your way in 2008 and now you can weasel your way out in 2012.  

Remember when Democrats were anxious to pass Obamacare without much debate? “We have to pass it to find out what’s in it?”  Now they’ll have to live with it and debate it too.

“It is absolutely an impossible task to manage risk when an individual can enter or leave a commercial product without any restrictions to pre-exisiting conditions,” said Brett Haugh, principal of Houston-based Employee Benefits Solutions, which helps employers manage health-care costs, according to the Houston Chronicle. “That means the price for those products will increase dramatically.”

Translation: Your insurance premiums will go up. Benefits will go down.

It’s simple math.
