CHICAGO TRIBUNE: ARROGANCE PLUS DECEPTION EQUALS OBAMACARE, ASK GRUBER -- "Even in Gruber's come-cleanery, there's one more lie. The people who deceived you about Obamacare didn't do so because you're stupid. They did so because they thought voters are smart, and would reject them and their schemes if they didn't spin their many deceptions."
THE ELECTION IS OVER . . . SO IT'S OKAY TO REPORT THIS -- NY Times: "Cost of coverage under affordable care act to increase in 2015." All the news that's fit to hide. And just days after the midterm elections because ... stupid Americans.

Do you know who else hates paying taxes? This guy.

"Ohio Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown was more than four months delinquent in paying taxes on his Washington, D.C., apartment and had to pay a penalty and interest last week. This was not the first time, records show. Brown also was delinquent in 2006 and 2007 and paid penalties and interest, according to tax records from the District of Columbia."

AMERICANS GETTING POORER -- Typical household is worth one-third less under Obama than under Bush.
NO, WASHINGTON HAS NOT SOLVED THE COUNTRY'S DEBT PROBLEM -- The first step to curing a spending addiction is to admit you have one.

JOBS CONTINUE TO LEAVE MINNESOTA -- “Minnesota needs a new financial direction. We can't keep raising taxes or threatening to raise taxes and expect companies to stay in Minnesota. Advanced Auto Parts, Cargill, Medtronic and Nash Finch are proof that companies will leave if the taxes are too high.”
