#2. The Headline Is About a "Lawmaker" Saying Something Stupid
#1. The Headline Includes the Phrase "Blow To"
quote:OK, you know about the huge fight over health care reform in America, right? Whether you think it's a good or a bad plan, you can't deny that it's freaking huge (to the tune of a trillion dollars over 10 years, and 31 million people getting health insurance). It will impact almost every single human being living in the United States, either through their personal ability to get coverage, or their taxes, or changing health care costs, or changing rules to their existing coverage -- there are dozens and dozens of new regulations that completely change the landscape of one of the largest sectors of the national economy.
So, when the Supreme Court recently threatened to completely overturn this gargantuan piece of legislation, how did it get reported?
Washington Post Headline: Supreme Court's health-care ruling could deal dramatic blow to Obama presidency
The ruling could deal a blow to the "Obama presidency"? **** you.
I don't give two ****s about the "Obama presidency" except in terms of what legislation it gets passed and how it changes the country and my life. I'm not following this story because I think it's a freaking Barack Obama reality show and I'm really eager to see how his life turns out. I don't see no **** crab boat. I'm following it because I want to know what it means for my own **** life and for the lives of the people I care about.
