Am I the only one who things Spicer sounds like a 20-year-old frat boy trying to explain his way out

out of an honors violation after getting caught red-handed with the exam questions in his dorm room?

Funny how Comey was so anxious to tell Congress everything the FBI was doing in the Clinton probe

that he even told them things they were looking at BEFORE they started looking - cause transparency ...

But now, his lips are sealed and he's keeping everything as close to his vest as possible - cause confidentiality.

So, is Comey a political hack who went after Clinton but is protecting Trump? Or was he naive and got burned by Congress so he's no being much more careful?

Does the Republican plan really keep individual mandate but lets insurers pocket the money?

Republicans are claiming that their plan eliminates the individual mandate. But in reality, it simply shifts the benefit of it to private insurers, allowing them to collect a 30% premium for people whose insurance lapses.

So, it looks like the individual mandate still exists, but now private insurers get to jack up their rates and benefit from people's unwillingness or inability to pay for private insurance. In other words, as I see it, people will still be penalized for not buying insurance, but the penalty would go straight into the pockets of the insurance companies, not into any public pool that offsets the cost of healthcare.

Am I reading this right?
