From The Seattle Times:
Seniors and people with disabilities would pay much more for health care under a new Republican plan aimed at curbing the nation’s growing debt, a Congressional Budget Office analysis shows.
For example, by 2030, typical 65-year-olds would pay 68 percent of the cost of premiums, deductibles and other out-of-pocket costs, according to the CBO. They would pay 25 percent under the current Medicare system, the CBO said.
The GOP budget proposal, introduced Tuesday by House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, also would raise the eligibility age for subsidized health care and repeal big chunks of the health-care law that Congress approved last year.

We left off yesterday with my visit to Dunkin’ Donuts, where the Ronald Reagan omnipresence was
nausea inducing apparent. I fled the donut shop and the horror to do some errands. The first thing on my list was buying some paint.
😯 Screw it. My walls look fine. I’ll go get a manicure instead.
From The New York Times:
On May 7, Dunkin’ Donuts began running an ad on its Web site and others, featuring the celebrity chef Rachael Ray holding a cup of the company’s iced coffee while wearing a black-and-white fringed scarf.
On May 23, the conservative blog Little Green Footballs posted an item that likened Ms. Ray’s scarf to the type typically worn by Muslim extremists. The blog said that the ads “casually promote the symbol of Palestinian terrorism and the intifada, the keffiyeh, via Rachael Ray.”
Later that day, the conservative blogger Michelle Malkin chimed in, likening the scarf to a keffiyeh and calling it “jihadi chic.” Then the story, as they say on the Internet, went totally viral.
Thank you, Little Green Footballs and Michelle Malkin! My only question is–what took you so long? I never trusted this guy….
Time to make the donuts, my ass!! More like Time to make the IEDs!
