In an effort to booster it’s fiscal responsibility credits, the Obama administration is looking into ways for citizens to pay for their own stuff.
No – not a couple of auto companies.
No – not your mortgages.
No – not the banks.
Read that again – or rather the story:
Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki confirmed Tuesday that the Obama administration is considering a controversial plan to make veterans pay for treatment of service-related injuries with private insurance, but was told by lawmakers that it would be “dead on arrival” if sent to Congress.
Thank God for Congress in this instance. Good Lord, what the hell is the matter with this man??
And for a morning funny on this administration, Ed Morrissey notes that the NYTimes has “broken” the story of Charle’s Freeman’s backing out on the NIC chairmainship without ever having had a story on the controversy surrounding it! Anatreptic gives credit to bloggers/radio for this one. Based on all I saw in the papers on this story, I’d say Anatreptic has it right.
