Trending: State of the Union edition

Posted January 21, 2015

OBAMA WINS: “I have no more campaigns to run," President Barack Obama said. 

When the Republican-majority Congress cheered that line, he added, "I know because I won both of them.”

DESIGNATED SURVIVOR: Anthony Foxx, the secretary of transportation, was the cabinet member chosen NOT to attend the speech. The Cabinet member who is picked to be the "designated survivor" has a grim task: Stay away from the U.S. Capitol during the State of the Union address and be prepared to help run the government if a catastrophic event wipes out the government leaders who do attend.

AND THE DRESS: Michelle Obama wore a grey Michael Kors skirt suit to watch her husband's sixth State of the Union. You might also recognize the suit if you're a "Good Wife" fan.

    Perhaps you should take it up with the insurance company as they are the ones that raised the premiums . . . . . . .

    Such a condesending left-wing attitude. It's NOT the insurance carrier's fault. It's the obama care trainwreck causing these increases so the "looters" can get theirs subsidized.

    Perhaps you should take it up with the insurance company as they are the ones that raised the premiums on your son-in-law. The ACA didn't give her free healthcare, it provided her the previously unavailable option to buy insurance despite having a pre-existing condition..... unless you think those with cancer don't deserve to be treated.

    Wish my son-in-law could have stood beside the woman who had the surgery. His insurance went from 450 a month to 740 a month. His increase paid for her insurance. Remember, 2400 a yr savings for each family? Worthless waste of time.
