About tomorrow:

Keep in mind:  The presidential election is not about personalities, it is about direction. The US Supreme Court, millions of unborn babies murdered, The Constitution and Bill of Rights, the Security of this nation and its borders, and on and on. Please be praying.  (Have no link for the above, but excellent piece here by Victor Davis Hanson, "Politics, Not Personalities, Will Likely Determine Presidential Election" 
 And this, at 3:25 pm 11-7-2016:
Battle for White House

About Obamacare premiums, with an eye to recent news about rising costs, Rep. Lilly and Sen. Harmon, July 13, 2013, OP Library:

A questioner asked if Obamacare would lower the cost of health care. Lilly, chuckling: "I attended Medicaid 101," apparently for rookie legislators. Then she asked, as if to challenge us, "When are we going to talk about the cost of health care?" She had been "the first to bring it up," she announced, presumably in a meeting of the Health & Healthcare Disparities committee, of which she was vice-chair.


The first to bring it up? It must have caused a stir.


"For me, health care is not affordable," she said. She meant in her opinion, as if hers was a minority opinion. "We need to talk about that." Right. "I think the high cost does impact access!" Right on! "I see every day what it costs," apparently in her work at Loretto Hospital. "Where do we begin?" Let's get started!


Harmon had heard enough. "The cost of the uninsured is the main problem," namely "in their use of emergency rooms," he said. "Obamacare is going to dramatically lower costs by just eliminating this alone." He was sure of this. Others were not, and costs were to rise.


About our Muslim friends from: Big Brotherhood is Watching You

According to pollster Frank Luntz's audience meter, one of Hillary Clinton's best moments in the first presidential debate was when she asserted that we need to cooperate with the Muslim community and not alienate them.


That makes sense, but only if you're cooperating with the right people in the Muslim community. The trouble is, we've been cooperating with all the wrong people—namely, Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). These are not moderate Muslim groups. They are stealth jihad organizations whose ties to the Muslim Brotherhood were established in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation trial.
