Ideology comes and meets the hard reality of health care in the US. (grokked from Jay Lake). NPR did an interview with one of those new representatives, which you can read here. Sucks, doesn't it? Sure helps that Congressman make $170,000+, doesn't it? And just as an info for Rep. Nugent, because the company I now work for is so large, I didn't see an increase last year (even though our workforce is pretty much 35+). Although for my contribution, I'm not paying that much less than when I was with a company of about 150 employees (currently over 3000).
One of the side effects of all the hacking lately with Wikileaks and the various Anonymous activity, is the discovery that the US Chamber of Commerce was engaged in false flag operations. Of course, the Chamber denies it all. However, it's doubtful that they could have orchestrated and provoked the attack by Anonymous to have these emails buried deep. It's also doubtful that Anonymous would have planted such info. (also grokked from Jay Lake)
And speaking of false flag operations, this may be one. It plays into popular belief on the Left that Fox News just makes stuff up. But then, it may also be true.
