Dick Durbin, the number two democrat in the senate, sold $116,000 in investments last September. The day after he and other top senators were briefed by Ben Bernanke about the major banks needing a bailout. Interesting.
The non-partisan congressional budget office has estimated that the health care bill in its current form, will cost $62,500 for every person who is uninsured in this country. Wouldn't it be cheaper to send them a check to purchase private insurance?
President Obama has stated that he may be taxing company provided health benefits. Didn't he pummel Senator McCain for the same thing during the election?

Terrorists (oh, sorry - providers of man-made disasters) are getting miranda rights when picked up in Afghanistan. Did they just stick up the local Safeway?
