$49 billion unpaid by uninsured Link
This is why they fought so hard to keep everyone from getting insurance.
If everyone had insurance, they couldn't charge you $80 for an aspirin.
Since 40M people have no insurance, they charge you $80 for the aspirin
and say, "We have to make up for the uninsured losses," which they caused.
"In the wake of President Obama's decision to not release pictures of Osama bin Laden's body, a number of new conspiracy theories are surfacing claiming that bin Laden is not really dead. Which means Barack Obama will go down in history as the first black person ever to have to prove that he killed someone." –Seth Meyers

Despite the best efforts of right-wing pundits and contradicting earlier reports, controversial rapper Common went through with his White House appearance at Michelle Obama's poetry event Wednesday. Earlier reports suggested that he wasn't there, but a White House video confirms that he showed up later than expected.
The Daily Caller earlier reported that he wasn't in attendance at the afternoon session, saying that when the first lady welcomed the poets who had been invited, she neglected to mention Common, and reporters did not see him at the event. But he apparently showed up for the evening session and even tweeted about his presence there.

These rights are important because not only can they mean the difference between a pregnant person's life and death, but because reproductive rights are human rights. The right to one's own personal body is the most basic human right there is and virtually all of our GOP leaders in congress have voted in favor of denying half the population that right.###
A group of 41 Not-Ready-for-Prime-Time Players send a letter to the White House "calling on President Obama to end the 'MediSCARE' tactics."
Wisconsin says it'll get $636 million more in tax revenue than expected because it's getting better at collecting.
The Republican co-chairs of the Joint Finance Committee said the $636 million windfall makes no difference in Governor Walker's call to strip public employees of their bargaining rights. "[State Senator Alberta] Darling said those changes help local governments deal with cuts in state aid and change some cost drivers down the road," the indispensable Wispolitics reports. Republicans also say they can use the money to avoid some budget cuts -- and to cut some taxes.
You'll remember that when Governor Walker proposed the budget repair bill, the deficit was $137 million. Mr. Walker hailed today's news as "the latest sign that the economy is improving."
We need to end collective bargaining rights to close a budget shortfall of $137 million dollars! And -- by the way -- here's $636 million dollars that we just "found."
For those doing the math, that leaves the state of Wisconsin with a budget surplus of $499 million dollars.
So much for that "budget crisis."
The 20-year-old daughter of 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin tells Us Weekly that she underwent corrective jaw surgery in December, a month after she finished third on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars." Her face now appears thinner, with higher cheekbones and an angular jaw.
"Yes, it improved the way I look, but this surgery was necessary for medical reasons," she told the magazine for its May 23 issue, which will be on newsstands Friday.
"I wouldn't get plastic surgery unless I got in an accident or something terrible and got disfigured," she said.
If anyone knows about "accidents", it's Little Miss Abstinence. Accidental pregnancies are hell on the figure. It's really a shame there's no surgery to remove the mendicant gene.
