What We’re Reading March 19, 2014

We hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and that the news we dig up for you this morning helps you navigate the day more efficiently!

It’s a busy world out there, and you don’t have a ton of free time to be doing Internet searches for the most important items of the day… lucky for you, we do. We drink gallons of coffee in an effort to stay awake long enough to scour the far reaches of the world wide web in an effort to bring you the most important, useful and useless information every single day.

You’re welcome.

So without further ado, here’s what we’re reading Wednesday March 19, 2014.

Under Obamacare healthcare premiums are rising faster than they did in the eight years prior to Obamacare COMNBINED. Surprise, surprise… under Obamacare insurance companies are making more profits while paying out less money than they were before.

Disgusting. The D.C. Abortion Fund is offering a coat-hanger pendant to anyone who donates at least $10 or more a month to their cause.


The White House’s official pastry chef has resigned saying, “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs.” The New York Times says that Michelle Obama’s push towards “healthier” foods is part of the reason for his resignation.
