Murphy's Law Revisited

So, Kathleen Murphy is running in the 34th District.

The reactions have been...well...predictable:

You may remember Ms. Murphy from such classics as: 

With no one to challenge her in her own party, Murphy, a member of 2013's "Little League" of Democrat House candidates, will go head-to-head with Republican businessman Craig Parisot in the 34th House District, vacated by Congresswoman-Elect Barbara Comstock.

School System Flunks Obamacare

This report, running in several local papers around the Roanoke area, is more evidence of the cost-heavy nature of Obamacare.

Roanoke City Public Schools are now forced to outsource their substitute teachers just to avoid over $150,000 in new healthcare costs mandated by Obamacare. The ACA's 30-hours per week requirement will likely be very problematic for other school systems as well in this regard. Many financially stressed local systems will be asked to decide between absorbing the high cost of insuring employees who may or may not even cross that line, and other options like privatization or actually cutting jobs.
