Posted on 22 December 2013 by Community Voice NY

The Wall Street Journal – Dec. 20, 2013 6:41 p.m. ET It seems Nancy Pelosi was wrong when she said “we have to pass” ObamaCare to “find out what’s in it.” No one may ever know because the White House keeps treating the Affordable Care Act’s text as a mere suggestion subject to day-to-day revision.

Otherwise, it means an extra hour of fasting (“Israel Salutes the Sun” page 11, Sunday Review) So far, so good, although Rosner makes clear which side he favors — the secular one obvi . >>> READ MORE ...
