“Of course, all your health information will be electronic. That shouldn’t be a big problem, but just use common sense. Like, if you’re having a kidney removed, make sure your doctor knows which one.” – HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius A note from our attorneys: This is not a real quote
President Obama this morning signaled he will seek to use the shutdown to his political advantage, launching what is sure to be a repeatedly told message that GOP tactics harmed the economy. Nearly five years into Obama’s reign, the economy is still growing painfully slowly and hiring is mediocre. But Obama has managed to elude much of the blame, and he intends to keep it
The statement has concluded.
Washington and the press tend to focus on the moment and act as if the moment will continue unchanged, forever. The Republican Party at a nadir in the polls. Conservative House and Senate lawmakers sent to Washington to change Washington supposedly look like fools for . . . trying to change Washington. The Washington establishment is proclaiming a “victory” for President Obama in the shutdown battle.
