*The public isn’t so hot about the FCC deciding to regulate the intertubes.
“The survey was conducted shortly after the FCC decided on a party line vote to impose so-called “net neutrality” regulations on the Internet world. Republicans and unaffiliated voters overwhelmingly oppose FCC regulation of the Internet, while Democrats are more evenly divided.

*The Democrats and Health-Care, by Tevi Troy.
“It was at this point that the essential dishonesty of President Obama’s repeated promise to dubious voters—“if you like your health care, you can keep it”—became inescapable. What Obama had meant, it turned out, was that government would not actively terminate employer-sponsored coverage to force you into a government program. So if employers chose to act rationally in response to the new law’s incentive structure, well, then, it would be your employer terminating your coverage and not the government.”
