Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

I predict Illinois will opt to run its own Obamacare Insurance exchange

Only 15-states have opted in so far, but I believe that the Illinois politicians will find this an irresistible new frontier for graft and corruption.



What could possibly go wrong? Ha!

Oh, that sounds like an evil voucher system as proposed by the greedy Republicans :-(
