Now that the health-care reform bill will most likely be signed into law soon, many are trying to figure out what it means for them. TheNew York Times has plenty of graphs up to break it down, but a great blog called the Connecticut Employment Law Blog, run by Daniel Schwartz, explains what it means for many employers.
I am trying to institute a pretty strict policy against blogging about Megan McArdle, since it seems like a never-ending rabbit hole of nonsense and false logic, but her response after the House passed the Senate version of the health-care bill last night was a special sort of ridiculousness. The entire post was histrionic and self-contradictory, especially this paragraph.
An Ohio judge has ordered teenage sexual-assault victims in four separate cases to undergo polygraph tests, along with the teenage boys who were convicted, before the scheduled sentencing, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
One of the most annoying things about the way the health-care battle has played out in the press is the way arguments of fact are presented as arguments of politics. That happened today, when, in a roundabout way of reporting on the CBO's score of the latest iteration of the reform bill, TheNew York Timesattributed the savings to the words of top Democrat officials instead of the Congressional Budget Office, which it later called "authoritative."
