NOD speaks the truth about primary care practices and their profitability. I did some consulting work on the side for a couple of them a few years ago. A very low margin, if at all business.
Renamed this to reflect all SCOTUS cases out there.
Just saw this, um, argument in the Prop 8 gay marriage case. Paul Clement must be running out of ideas.
That is actually an argument being made by anti-same-sex-marriage litigators. To the Supreme Court of the United States. This is not a joke. Someone give this guy a raise, because this is creative:
I said it in the abortion thread and I'll say it here. We shouldn't even be having these discussions anymore. It;s here, it's happening, let's move on to important work.
Common sense prevails.
The Obama administration is announcing a broader opt-out for religious nonprofits that object to providing health insurance that covers birth control.
The administration is allowing religious nonprofits to offer coverage that does not include contraception. In such a case, a third-party issuer will handle all business related to providing birth-control coverage for women, according to a source familiar with the changes who spoke only on condition of anonymity.
Well that was nice of them to allow that.
Something tells me they woke up to the fact the SCOTUS would not approve.
Shocking news: The wheels are coming off Obi-wan Care already.
The central parts of ObamaCare dont roll out until 2014, but the wheels are already falling off this clunker. The latest news from four federal agencies is that 1) insurance will be a lot less...
Yeah, one gets the impression it could be too Rube Goldbergian to stay together. Might need a major rehauling in the next couple of years, which could get interesting given our fiscal situation and the makeup of Congress.
After totally screwing up the insurance market and health care delivery system, there counting on us saying f* it, let's just let the government do it all.
That kind of sounds like a plan that would be hatched by a car full of kids smoking dope.
LOL. I mean just absolutely fucking LOL. Even Gomer Pyle could have seen this coming.
Tens of thousands of Americans who can’t get health insurance due to pre-existing medical problems will be blocked from a program designed to help them because funding for the measure is running low.
Obama administration officials said Friday that the state-based “high risk pools” set up under the 2010 health-care law will be closed to new applicants as soon as Saturday and no later than March 2, depending on the state.
"Of the original $5 billion, only about $2.36 billion remains for the final three quarters of 2013 — enough only to continue coverage for those already in the pools, according to administration estimates"
So basically the hundred thousand already enrolled will cost $5 billion?
Good article on the Voting Rights Act case going before SCOTUS.
One of the most popular and successful federal laws in America survived decades of partisan congresses and administrations. Next week, the justices may finally dismantle it.
lololol at the goddamn math-challenged liberal fucktards. HTF did they ever get out of elementary school - oh wait...
In which Scalia calls Section 5 of the VRA a racial entitlement, and other nonsense...
And yes, Roberts, the answer is yes.
The Voting Rights Act took a beating from conservative justices Wednesday during oral arguments at the Supreme Court.
It's a tough issue. I think that article makes a good point that potential abuses of voting rights can happen just as easily outside the deep south, and those states aren't subject to pre-clearance
Part of me hopes they rule a certain way just so I can go on twitter and watch people freaking out that the Supreme Court just took away the right to vote
Yeah I can't see how they uphold that. It just doesn't make any sense to assume an indefinite static situation with racial prejudice in some states and not others.
“The problem was terrible,” said Justice Stephen Breyer, calling racial discrimination in voting an “old disease” that has “gotten a lot better” but is “not yet cured.”
Just curious...who decides, and by which criteria, that the problem is "cured"?

SCOTUS has not authority to do this do they? It is the duty of Congress and the Executive branch to do so, or do I have that wrong?
I think the gist of the argument is DOMA, etc. violate the equal protection clause, amongst other things. I anticipate Kunal will enlighten us with some knowledge on this subject at some point.
What's funny is that Republicans unanimously voted to re-up the Voting Rights Act, but if the Supreme Court strikes down section 5 the headlines will be "Republican Supreme Court strikes down Voting Rights Act!"
On key voting rights legislation, will the Supreme Court share Justice Scalias disdain for democracy?
