First lady Michelle Obama is seeking $10 donations to protect Obamacare, her husband's troubled health insurance system.

Just one day before he gives the annual State of the Union address, the first lady sent out a fundraising email to supporters hoping to use the speech to prompt donations to help Democrats in the midterm elections this fall.

    Friend —

    Earlier this month, because of what you did, it became illegal for insurance companies to discriminate against the up to 129 million Americans living with pre-existing conditions. Young Americans are able to stay on their parents' health care plans as they get on their feet, and we can now know that our insurance companies won't put lifetime caps on our coverage.


Is this even supposed to be legal for her to do? I know it doesn't matter because they can do what they please is seems. But is this breaking any kind of laws?

Legal? I guess so, at least technically.

Moral? Not so much.

She's asking for donations to the Democratic Party.


This is a non-story. **nononono*

Well, I just got notified by Social Security that there's an IMMRA [call it a surcharge] on my Medicare B for my [then non-Medicare D] drug plan. They're taking almost $240 a month out of my Social Security. The good news is my pension plan will reimburse it. The bad news is, not any time soon. And although my income taxes were filed yesterday [electronically], the IRS won't be paying the refund until the end of February.

So, Moochie, I don't think you should look to me for a ten spot. I gave at the pension.  :#@$%:

Ouch. That's got to sting.

My sympathy.
