A lot of states are rejecting Obama’s health scam for some very good reasons. As we go to press there is a breaking development as we learn today that Pennsylvania won’t be setting their own state exchange either:
“Health care reform is too important to be achieved through haphazard planning,” Corbett said. “Pennsylvania taxpayers and businesses deserve more. They deserve informed decision making and a strong plan that responsibly uses taxpayer dollars.” …We’re getting awfully close already to half the states saying “No” to Obamacare, But it is not just Obama’s health scam that is in trouble in the states. Enter Michigan (btw, did AP ever ascribe “ruthless” to anything Obama has done (such as ramming through his health care scam?)):
Corbett said it “would be irresponsible to put Pennsylvanians on the hook for an unknown amount of money to operate a system under rules that have not been fully written.” …
“As the chants of angry protesters filled the Capitol, Michigan lawmakers gave final approval Tuesday to right-to-work legislation, dealing a devastating and once-unthinkable defeat to organized labor in a state that has been a cradle of the movement for generations.
The Republican-dominated House ignored Democrats’ pleas to delay the passage and instead approved two bills with the same ruthless efficiency as the Senate showed last week. One measure dealt with private sector workers, the other with government employees. Republican Gov. Rick Snyder signed them within hours. [snip]
Once the laws are enacted, the state where the United Auto Workers was founded and labor has long been a political titan will join 23 others with right-to-work laws, which ban requirements that nonunion employees pay unions for negotiating contracts and other services.”
So there's some politics. Now movies.
First off, GT wrote a great e-mail about the film he hoped would be in Ann and my top ten. He made a great case.
And he wasted his time!
GT, that's the film I was talking about last night. The only animated film that we're going to be including so far. That is a great movie.
Though your e-mail won't help it make the list, I did forward your e-mail to Ann and she called me tonight to say she agrees and while we were thinking top 5, we should be thinking top 3 for it. So, GT, that's what your e-mail did.
Other news? Redbox. I'm signed up so that I can reserve films and have them ready at the box when I go there. (You have to give an e-mail address to rent from Redbox anyway so you might as well use it.) So I got the e-mail everybody else got today. For $8.99, Redbox will start streaming at some point.
When? They're not saying. They're not saying much of anything right now. Getting a lot of news for not saying much of anything. I have no idea what they will be offering.
Still movies. Click here to see a photo of Drew Barrymore with her baby. This is "People" and she posed for it. I wouldn't link otherwise because babies deserve their privacy. So if this were a paparazzi picture, I'd ignore it. Since she posed for it, I'm linking.
No, I don't usually. But I do love Drew Barrymore. She's "E.T." and "Firestarter," she's "Poison Ivy" and "Bad Girls," she's "Mad Love" and "Batman Forever," she's "Never Been Kissed" and "Ever After," -- get my point.
Drew has lived her life trying to be open to everyone. She's fought for the rights of all when she didn't have to, when it could have hurt her career. She's given honesty that most never provide. And she's a really great actress.
So I'm happy for her.
