Happy Friday.

Folks that don't like the platinum coin trick because it's silly, though not illegal or unconstitutional, have proposed a new idea that, though it is less obviously silly, is definitely illegal. An IOU is just another form of debt, something Treasury is not allowed to take on beyond the debt limit. Not to mention, IOUs are not a solution to the problem, just another way to delay it and, unlike the platinum coin trick, not even delay it that long.

Sex-selective abortions are already occurring in the UK.

Politico finally figure out something that we've been saying for three years: if you make health insurance more expensive, which is what Obamacare did, health insurance will cost more. OTOH, the writer clearly doesn't realize that placing a new tax health on insurers isn't going to mitigate their additional costs of mandatory new benefits. She seems to think a tax on a business doesn't cost the business anything.

The 8.5 billion foreclosure settlement with banks is just a way to paper over yet another Obama Administration blunder in its failed mortgage reform efforts.
