lovelalola commented on 'Joe Hynes has to live in the real world and he has to live in the world that they're in'Yes, he does have to live in the real world, the world where little boys and girls get raped by unscrupulous people who should not be protected because of their religion. This is a case of the privileged protecting the privileged, and I cannot believe the people of NYC stand for it. Oh wait, yes I can. It's also the most segregated city in America, so protecting privilege is standard operating procedure in NYC. You couldn't pay me to live there, and this is one of many, many reasons why.

lovelalola commented on Architect of Obama's health care plan fears a 'political' decision by the Supreme Court, says Romney's lyingPrivileged and upset, he means. A guy working for MIT and with his hands this far in the political process for this long has no idea what folks like me on Main Street are about. I don't have insurance because it's a bad deal that eats up more than 10% of my annual income just for the monthly premium--not including co-pays, spend downs, etc. I haven't ever in my entire adult life spent 10% of my annual income on paying full price for my medical needs and the needs of my family. And he lies. Single-payer isn't the only option, as attractive as it is. There's also the public option. Oh, but this isn't REALLY about free-market solutions, free enterprise, or competition, or else that option would have been considered. It wasn't because privileged people like Gruber and his buddies in the Insurance Racket Lobby group didn't want a solution that would be competition to insurance companies. I was a Democrat until this Health Insurance Bailout passed. Never again. They are as worse, if not worse than, Republicans.
