Happy Cinco de Mayo

Affordable Care Act: A Tale of Two States : In Oklahoma, which has raged against the law, insurance
premiums are among the nation’s highest. New Mexico, which oversees its marketplace, has some of the lowest.

Elizabeth Warren on Big Banks and Their (Cozy Bedmate) Regulators : The capture of our regulatory and political system by big and powerful corporations is real. And it is a central and disturbing theme in the new book by Senator Elizabeth Warren, Democrat of Massachusetts. “This Fight Is Our Fight” contains juicy but depressing anecdotes about how our most trusted institutions have let us down. It also shows why, years after the financial crisis, big banks are still large, in charge and, basically, unaccountable for their actions.

How Best to Tax Business : Despite an uneven start, tax reform is on the agenda in Congress. And the ideas being considered, especially regarding business taxation, are not mere tweaks to our ossified system. They would profoundly alter how the government raises money and upend the incentives for private decision makers. This is fascinating to tax policy nerds like me.

    Read this sent to my Congress man, Sean Duffy W7, this morning on his website asking for my opinion on “Health.”

    “As a Catholic, I view your latest vote on health care as an incarnate evil, a betrayal of your faith, a moral crime against the sick of the poor…”

    It was about this time my thought was restricted on Duffy’s site and so I complete it here: “and the middle class and rewards the greed of the wealthy.

    May God have mercy on your soul.”

    I wonder how many WI BB’s who have a Republican legislator have expressed their dismay at the recent House health care legislation? Or why not?
