The people of rural Nevada’s Storey County elected Lance Gilman commissioner by a wide margin. Gilman owns the Mustang Ranch brothel. He is the first such owner to win election to public office in Nevada since prostitution was legalized there in 1971.
ObamaCare was supposed to make health care more affordable. Tell that to those who have been benefiting from FSA and HSA options. Thanks to ObamaCare, Flex Spending Accounts will be capped in 2013 at $2500. ObamaCare has already imposed an increased penalty for Health Savings Accounts withdrawal and disallowed purchase of health-related products without a prescription. ObamaCare is also requiring a tax on all health-related devices, thus increasing the cost of not just specialty, prescription devices, but also common over-the-counter products like tampons and band-aids.
ObamaCare was also supposed to make health care more available. But because of its numerous regulations and restrictions, half of all doctors practicing now plan to cut back on hours, see fewer patients, or retire altogether.

Like crony politics.
