    I’ve seen quite a few predictions about premium increases due to Obamacare. Look for some unhappy customers.

  2. Bruce says:

    Holder is a fascist.

  3. Jeff says:

    I think the Aetna CEO is probably right.

  4. Thomas says:

    If only politics weren’t a game.

  5. August says:

    It looks like the CBO and Aetna projections disagree. All we can really do is wait to see who is right.

    Just playing Devils Advocate here; isn’t school safety spending exactly the type of over reach by the federal government that should be eliminated?

    It isn’t even close to an enumerated power, it provides solely local benefits, and it’s provided to schools (a traditional area of state authority).
