    In a sense, Jonathan Gruber’s response today to the emergence of his 2012 explanation for the language in ObamaCare mirrors the attempt to get courts to ignore the plain text of the statute and instead rule based on the most current interpretation. The New Republic’s Jonathan Cohn reached out to Gruber to get his reaction to the emergence of the Nobilis video in which the architect of ObamaCare explains that the restriction of subsidies to states with their own exchanges was a rational attempt to coerce states into creating those exchanges, rather than shifting the burden back to the federal...

    The Supreme Court followed up the landslide election on Tuesday with its own shocker: it announced that it will hear the Burwell case, which challenges the Obama administration’s extension of insurance subsidies in states that do not have health-care exchanges. I think the chances are high that the administration will lose. Because:

    With Bruce Rauner’s election in Illinois, the Republican Governor’s Association has checked this bluer-than-blue state off its Democrat tick list. It must feel good—but I’m less than sanguine. For the better part of a year, powerful Chicago Democrats have been whispering in my ear, extolling Rauner’s virtues. I heard similar insider political “chatter” about Barack Obama from these same Democrats long before he ran for U.S. Senate. Even the left-leaning Chicago Sun-Times suddenly changed its no-endorsement policy to back Rauner — and only Rauner — without even the basic formality of a candidate questionnaire or interview.

    (CBS) – If you have to be 21 to buy a drink, do you need to be the same age to buy cigarettes? One community in Illinois thinks so. Health experts are hoping Evanston won’t be the last. CBS 2’s Derrick Blakley reports. At this Evanston grocery store, signs warn you can’t buy tobacco under age 18. Starting Saturday, the age limit goes up to 21, when a new ordinance takes effect. “You’re going to have some customers that are going to be upset, but the law’s the law,” says Kosta Douvikas of D and D Finer Foods.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is said to be losing the strong support she has enjoyed among her Democrats in the United States House of Representatives. Yet, the 74-year-old politician powerhouse from California has made it well known to her fellow-Democratic lawmakers that she intends on keeping her position in Washington, D.C., as the House Minority Leader. As she expresses her desire to stay in power, Politico is reporting on Thursday that there are no Democrats preparing to challenge Pelosi publicly even though there are those who wish she would be replaced.

    California has turned itself into something of a joke over the years in large part because of their Rule by Referendum mentality. A sufficiently large group of people – and really not all that many – can get just about any idea that crosses their minds onto the ballot and have it enacted into law with a slick enough sales campaign. There are in excess of 100 of these proposals facing left coast voters this year, and one of them – Proposition 46 – seems to be pitting doctors against lawyers.

CBS 2’s Derrick Blakley reports. It’s Oberweis’ fourth bid for statewide office in the last dozen years. But wealthy businessman Oberweis may still be better known for his iconic ice cream stores than his politics. His theme this time: “career politician” Dick Durbin has been around far too long.

In fact, he’d be willing to play Batman again – under one condition. “If it was Tim Burton directing? In a heartbeat,” Keaton tells Entertainment Weekly in a new cover story.

For conservatives, the stakes in this election could hardly be higher. The course could not be more clear.

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Mayor Bill de Blasio signed an executive order on Tuesday that expanded New York City's living wage law, increasing the hourly rate to $13.13 from $11.90 for workers who do not receive benefits. The significant expansion, which will cover thousands of previously exempt New Yorkers, fulfilled a campaign promise made by de Blasio, who became the city's first Democratic mayor in a generation when he took office in January. It strengthened a law that was approved by the City Council in 2012.

    Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional elections because your favorite candidate lost his primary bid to an establishment Republican. If you live in Kansas, for example, you can suck your thumb while Democrat ringer Greg Orman beats Republican Senator Pat Roberts. If you’re a Kentucky conservative, you can stay home and bitch about Mitch while Alison “Rubberstamp” Grimes heads to Washington. If you’re in Mississippi, you can stay mad at Thad and allow Travis “no repeal” Childers to win. That’ll show those RINOs!

    Many FReepers, unfortunately, are not grasping the underlying reasons why the NFL is suddenly in the news over recent incidents of domestic violence and subsequent calls for Goodell to resign. They are swallowing the leftist media narrative and seeing the issue through their microcosm rather than putting everything into context. I've been flamed on various NFL threads for merely pointing what Rush Limbaugh predicted several years ago, and I actually began to realize it when the demands for ex-players' compensation for concussions and other football-related injuries began to surface. This should have been obvious to even newbies here. Please note:...
