"Little-Noticed" is the new "Unexpected"
Posted by Kory Swanson at 5:17 PM
In his excellent blog, Legal Insurrection, Cornell law professor William Jacobson notes:
"'Unexpected' has become the term of choice for the mainstream media to excuse the Obama administration's economic failures.
Yesterday I read an article in The NY Times about something unexpected in Obamacare, and one term jumped out at me (emphasis mine):
About one-third of employers subject to major requirements of the new health care law may face tax penalties because they offer health insurance that could be considered unaffordable to some employees, a new study says.... It suggests that a little-noticed provision of the law could affect far more employers than Congress had assumed.
That term, 'little-noticed,' sure sounded familiar. It seems that we hear that term a lot.
I didn't intend on this post being so long, but the examples are so numerous....."
Read Professor Jacobson's examples and be troubled.
