"How dare you say you're not a feminist!

And you enjoy cooking for your husband!  You bitch!"  etc.
Commenters who describe themselves as feminists have been quick to attack the actress, calling her “talentless” and an “idiot” who doesn’t know what feminism is. As many of them see it, Cuoco owes her success and her salary to the hard work of decades of feminists.
Yeah, couldn't POSSIBLY have been her working for it, could it.

More of Professor "I wanted to look smart" Grubers' words come out.
“The problem is it starts to go hand in hand with the mandate; you can’t mandate insurance that’s not affordable. This is going to be a major issue,” Gruber admitted in an October 2, 2009 lecture, the transcript of which comprised the policy brief.

“So what’s different this time? Why are we closer than we’ve ever been before? Because there are no cost controls in these proposals. Because this bill’s about coverage. Which is good! Why should we hold 48 million uninsured people hostage to the fact that we don’t yet know how to control costs in a politically acceptable way? Let’s get the people covered and then let’s do cost control.”
Yeah, because you can always loot the pockets of  anyone who has any money left to try to pay for it, right?

Note that this also shows- in case there was any doubt- that Obama was lying his ass off with his 'save you $2500 a year!' crap.

“The real substance of cost control is all about a single thing: telling patients they can’t have something they want. It’s about telling patients, ‘That surgery doesn’t do any good, so if you want it you have to pay the full cost.’”
And who decides it 'won't do any good'?  Why, the rationing panel, of course!  Or do we dare say 'death panel', since that's what it'll be?  Remember this?
OBAMA: “I don’t think that we can make judgments based on people’s spirit. That’d be a pretty subjective decision to be making. I think we have to have rules that say that we are gonna provide good quality care for all people. End-of-life care is one of the most difficult sets of decisions that we’re gonna have to make. But understand that those decisions are already being made in one way or another. If they’re not being made under Medicare and Medicaid, they’re being made by private insurers. At least we can let doctors know and your mom know that, you know what, maybe this isn’t gonna help. Maybe you’re better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller.”
Because Government knows better than you and your doctor.  Because once you're not a productive unit of society(by their measure) you're just a waster of resources.

Notice he doesn't deal with one of the most basic things here: an insurance company can say "We won't pay for that", but CANNOT say "You cannot have that."  But government can.  And will.
