In politics and policy

Feb 27, 2014

CNN floors us with the news that some restaurants are now adding an Obamacare fee to customers' bills. At the Tampa Bay TimesDrew Harwell asserted, "#Florida wing chain Gator's Dockside: $.20 for health care is crazy. Enjoy your $2.49 tea." Or as Ruth Franklin at The New Republic put it, "Everything wrong w the US, in 1 pic."

Then Thomas Kaplan and Susanne Craig with the NY Times published the story that New York governor Andrew Cuomo is going so far as to steer the GOP as it picks his rivalCapital New York's Jimmy Vielkind also noticed with interest that the article "didn't include the other rumor, that Cuomo is quietly, smilingly, encouraging Donald Trump."

Also, this Politico profile of Vice President Joe Biden by Glenn Thrush is one of today's top "must-reads." Jason Zengerle with The New Republic was impressed enough to tweet, "I'm no longer on the payroll so take my word: @GlennThrush's Biden profile is fantastic."
Oh, and for funzies, please enjoy this twitpic that British prime minister David Cameron shared of Angela Merkel visiting him. MediaBistro's Alexander C. Kaufman noted, "This looks like an awkward teenage date."
