Rahm Emanuel is one of the most interesting characters in politics. No one - not in the blogosphere, not in the msm - can resist his allure.

Noted by Political Wire:

Politico: "After finishing his opening round of casual meet-and-greets, Emanuel hopped into a Dodge Caravan, in which he could be seen vigorously sanitizing his hands in plain view of television cameras and reporters."

Insurers Drop Sick Kids, Kids Only Policies Before HCR Takes Effect

Shocker.

Major health insurance companies in California and other states have decided to stop selling policies for children rather than comply with a new federal healthcare law that bars them from rejecting youngsters with preexisting medical conditions.

Anthem Blue Cross, Aetna Inc. and others will halt new child-only policies in California, Illinois, Florida, Connecticut and elsewhere as early as Thursday when provisions of the nation's new healthcare law take effect, including a requirement that insurers cover children under age 19 regardless of their health histories.

Yay Greed!

Murkowski v. Lieberman

Yet another difference between Democrats and Republicans:

Senate Republicans are not happy with their colleague, Senator Lisa Murkowski, for running as a write-in candidate in Alaska’s Senate race, and they intend to show it.

Not content with Ms. Murkowski’s resignation from her position as vice chairwoman of the Senate Republican Conference, Republicans intend to meet on Wednesday and vote to strip her of her position as the senior Republican on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee.

Democrats let Lieberman keep all his leadership positions when he ran as an independent against Democratic nominee Ned Lamont.

Where are the jobs?

Trust the market.

American companies are still sitting on mountains of cash, according to a new report from the Federal Reserve.
...
Ms. Saporta finds that corporate liquid assets made up 6.12 percent of total business assets in the second quarter. That’s just barely down from the level in 6.21 percent in the first quarter, when companies had the highest share of assets in cash since the early 1960s.

Greed rocks.

The challenges of change are always hard. It is important that we begin to unpack those challenges that confront this nation and realize that we each have a role that requires us to change and become more responsible for shaping our own future.
