Article wrote:After months of regulatory delays, the floodgates have apparently opened. The Health and Human Services Department delivered two major health reform rules to the Office of Management and Budget on Friday, the first in an anticipated stream of health regulation.
Many sources close to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services told National Journal that the administration had a number of important health rules ready to go but was holding them back until after the election to avoid a political backlash. Now that President Obama has been reelected, they predicted those rules would start emerging, and fast. The forecast is about right. We are now three days postelection.
The content of the two rules that have gone to OMB have not been made public, but both relate to the insurance exchanges that states must build to sell health plans in 2014. It is not a surprise that exchange rules came first: States must tell HHS whether they plan to build their own exchange or let the federal government do it for them by November 16, next Friday. Many state officials have been complaining that it’s tough to make that decision without more details about how the various options would work.
Options? You want options?! Hahahahahaha!!! Idiots. Do as you're told.

That figure equals about 22 percent of the population, which means there was one person on Medicaid for every 5 Americans in 2011.
My doctor told me he would move to Australia if this happened. He seemed serious (well, his wife is from there, so maybe it's just a good excuse). No medicaid and federal caps for services in Australia?

The carcass was found Thursday morning in the 3900 block of Highland Avenue, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The pig reportedly also had barbed wire wrapped around its head, the Times said.
Wait, I thought animal rights was the leftist thing? ... I'm getting confused. But isn't this typical Lib-Dem antics? Poor little pig.
