Daily Kos Readers Learn About Obamacare

I wish I had a photo of this guy's face when he read the news. On the plus side, the next 10-20 years will provide lots more of these moments.
Obamacare will double my monthly premium (according to Kaiser)

My wife and I just got our updates from Kaiser telling us what our 2014 rates will be. Her monthly has been $168 this year, mine $150. We have a high deductible. We are generally healthy people who don't go to the doctor often. I barely ever go. The insurance is in case of a major catastrophe.
Well, now, because of Obamacare, my wife's rate is gong to $302 per month and mine is jumping to $284.
I am canceling insurance for us and I am not paying any fucking penalty. What the hell kind of reform is this?

That would be "progressive" reform.

Cathedral Caught in a Lie

This is a 40-minute video about the new Fed Chairman, Janet Yellen. Peter Schiff starts with various snips from Cathedral media, which support Yellen's nomination due to her prescience in warning of a housing bubble. Schiff goes on to show that this is a complete fabrication. What I find most interesting is how the media went out of their way to lie; there are serious concerns about the erosion of confidence.
