Prayers

If you are the praying type, my little brother could use some help. He had a bone marrow / stem cell transplant earlier this month. He has developed a fairly rare infection, causing encephalitis and severe seizures. He is on a feeding tube, and ventilator, and is being transported to a neurological ICU.

I normally have sharp edges, but even more so recently. Sorry.

Apples to Apples

Jay Carney explains to us why they make the claim that premium increases are less than anticipated. ***Corrected to reflect that Jay Carney uttered this nonsense, not Tim.

There were numerous projections about what these exchanges — which, by the way, did not exist before, including the multitude of plans that will not be available to consumers that did not, that were not in place before. So, obviously, this is not an apples-to-apples. It’s a, you know, apple full of worms compared to an apple that’s fresh and delicious…

The fundamental dishonesty of what they are doing here is that they make their claim of lower than expected rates, based off a projection that was not tied to the actual current rates. If they compared the actual ObamaCare rates to the actual premiums being paid by actual people … yeah, I know. So much for saving $2500 for a family of four.
