Well Brown got kicked to the curb (again) MI senate stays blue, yay

South Dakota goes to the GOP...

how does VA have Warner at 45 and Gilliespe at 52 this makes no sense.

I really am not liking this.
unless Nor VA hasn't been counted yet.

how can Nunn only be at 38.6 and Perdue at 59.8 ???

just saw that WV went GOP Capito nt

ballot flipping that is being reported.

This should strengthen the demand for paper ballots.

MD, IL, CO. all reporting ballots being flipped.
also votes being changed on amendments.

in the cases I saw in Google it was machines switching votes
from GOP to Dems. but I have seen here on DU votes being
switched from Dems to GOP.

we need paper ballots.

Just a short rant, I will be so glad for Tuesday.

I am sooooo d*mn sick of getting spamm phone calls.
*rant off*
thanks for letting me vent.

The BOSTON GLOBE endorses Baker for Governor. WTF


Baker’s candidacy offers an opportunity to consolidate some of the advances made during the administration of Deval Patrick. Baker could be counted on to preserve and extend educational reforms, to ensure the rigorous administration of new funds for transportation, to knowledgeably oversee the cost-containment law now reshaping the state’s signature health care industry. At a difficult inflection point in state government, Massachusetts needs a governor who’s focused on steady management and demonstrable results.
Roundup of endorsements

Question 2: Yes
Question 3: Yes
Question 4: Yes

much more at the link.

since we have now started early voting how is it that

the races are so close, I mean 1-3 points on most races and in many cases
both candidates are under 50 percent ...

I have a question concerning a new requirement my job is requiring.

they are instituting a navy style PT test.
1.5 mile run pushups and sit ups ,
different requirements for males and females
and different requirements for different ages.
requirements being the time allotment for the run
and the number of pushups and sit ups required.
is this legal ? I know the military can get away
with different requirements based on sex and age
but a private company. I would think that people
doing the same job, getting the same pay, would
be required to have the same requirements.

anyone have any idea if this is legal or not.

IBD bronze plan price increase - silver price down.

the GOOD news is that the silver plan prices should come DOWN!

ObamaCare shoppers in search of the lowest-cost plan may come down with a mild case of rate shock when 2015 exchange enrollment begins next month.
An examination of next year's rates in the biggest city in 15 states and Washington, D.C., reveals that the cost of the cheapest bronze plan will jump an average of 13.9% for 40-year-old non-smokers earning 225% of the poverty level ($26,260).


In Seattle, the cost of the cheapest bronze plan, after subsidies, will soar 64%, from $60 to $98 per month, for individuals at this income level. Some other cities seeing notable gains include Providence (up 38%, from $72 to $99 per month); Los Angeles (up 27%, from $88 to $111); Las Vegas (up 22%, from $100 to $122); and New York (up 18%, from $97 to $114).


The surge in the cost of the cheapest subsidized bronze policy could negatively impact enrollment in 2015. This year, 39% of bronze plan choosers picked the lowest-price option. One might expect that share to rise in 2015, when millions of people who passed on ObamaCare exchanges this year are expected to enroll.
While some potential enrollees may opt out because of the higher cost of bronze, some young adults may instead pick catastrophic plans available to those under 30. The latter scenario is also not great news for ObamaCare exchanges, since catastrophic plan members are grouped separately, leaving the main risk pool relatively older and more costly.


Perhaps the clearest evidence of the benign rate environment for 2015 came from an analysis by the Kaiser Family Foundation . The authors found that the cost of the benchmark silver plan would fall an average 0.8% in the same 16 cities that IBD looked at.
Further, the report found that the after-subsidy cost of the second-lowest-cost silver plan would also fall an average 0.8%.
There are two big reasons for the difference. First, Kaiser researchers calculated after-subsidy premiums for someone whose expected income in 2015 is the same as in 2014, while IBD's illustration assumes income rises with inflation.
