Billy and Hilly were very upset when their black friends like Jesse J and John Lewis abandoned Hilly in the 2008 campaign.

But Bill never ceases to amaze. He really did give a great speech ( at the convention ) and help BO in 2012. But think it through! If BO had lost, Billy would have been diminished as the Elder statesman of American politics, and Hilly is probably better positioned with a Dem in office than if Romney had won.

Note too that Hilly is distanced from Obamacare ( she was bravely running around the world as Sec. of State ), and that Bill has officially started the move to the center, with his pronouncement about, " it is right to let them keep their policies " ( and lo and behold, 39 House Dems voted for a GOP bill ). Let BO deal with the problems and logistics. I had predicted long ago that BO will be as toxic in 2016 as GWB was in 2008. A brilliant politician like Slick Willie will be needed by Hilly.

The above is a serious post.

And here's some more redistribution baby!

ObamaCare's Union Favor
The White House may let Big Labor dodge a reinsurance tax

http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303309504579182061106839366

"There's no conceivable rationale—other than politics—for releasing union-only plans from a tax that is defined as universal in the Affordable Care Act statute. Like so many other ObamaCare waivers, this labor dispensation will probably turn out to be illegal.

"And by the way, this favor harms all other taxpayers. The IRS assesses the reinsurance tax in annual tranches; it must collect $12 billion in 2014, $8 billion in 2015 and $5 billion 2016. So the smaller pool of ordinary people without a union card will pay a larger individual share of the same overall amount".

Niiiice!!!!!

I just referenced Obamacare in closing arguments. Civil case involving my client installing a new roof and the roof developed mold. But the house had a serious mold problem before the roof replacement.

"Roof replacement is not Obamacare. Pre-existing conditions are not covered. She had mold before the roof installation and developed mold afterwards. Not my client's fault."

If it was a Hip Roof, you're gonna lose.

Obamacare does cover pre-existing Hip Roof conditions.

As a fellow attorney, I can appreciate your strategy Harvey.

Just sayin' but I won the case.

By "won" I don't mean that I got a verdict in my client's favour. By "won" I mean I got paid in advance so don't care.

I'll be honest, paying you up front seems like a bad idea.

Bad idea or no, it's the only way. I don't work for free.

Any lawyer who waits until after the case is done to collect his fee is a chump, unless he's getting contingency and they are sending the check to him.

Agreed. You will never get paid if you wait. In line with that see also my Rule # 1 for Settlements: The money always comes to me. Period. Nonnegotiable.

Most of my cases, however, are not flat fee arrangements--- particularly the litigation. We still live by the holy billable hour with a good initial retainer fee to weed out the riff raff.

Great Attorney's pay the Attorney General of their state $1,000,000 for juicy cases.

It was many moons ago but I knew a few of the people involved in this famous case.

For whatever reason, Texas was once a Mecca for Big Tits, Big Tobacco, Big Asbestosis, and Big Pharma Mega settlements. I haven't kept up and I would guess that's no longer the case.
