Under the provision, companies with 50 or more workers face a fine of as much as $3,000 per employee if they dont offer affordable insurance.
The law does not require that employers offer affordable insurance. In fact, given that the insurance must be comprehensive, it is guaranteed to be expensive. Furthermore, employees will be required to bear the majority of the burden. When the democratic sheep realize how much they have been sheared by Obamacare the bleating will be deafening.
Written just yesterday and already dated. But the author, Mohamed Soliman, is a leader in the Rebel youth movement in Cairo and has an insider's perspective.
Example: he notes the bargain made between Champ and the Brøderbünd: we'd support them, and in return they'd control the crazies in the Syrian rebellion so as to ensure the weapons provided to the rebels didn't fall into the 'wrong' hands. Champ bought that? Apparently so.
Worth the read.

On Monday, he became the head of Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court. Just two days later, the 67-year-old was installed as the country's president after a military coup ousted Mohammed Morsy from power.
In a televised speech to the nation Wednesday night, Egypt's top military officer announced that Mansour would become the country's interim leader.

what Soliman didn't address much is
the role of the Salafist party over the past month
defection of rank and file MB members
I think it may have to do with the fact that there wasn't enough money to spread around to keep everyone happy

When Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence, he included a wistful line that was excised by the other signatories: 'We might have been a great and free people together'.
Until that moment, the idea that Americans were engaged in a war against a foreign power would have struck Patriots and Loyalists alike as bizarre. Jefferson, like other Virginia radicals, saw himself as a British Whig, heir to the tradition of Edward Coke (1552--1634), John Hampden (1595--1643) and Algernon Sidney (1623--1683). He did not believe he was laying claim to any new rights; rather, he was defending the liberties that he assumed he had been born with as an Englishman. Right up to the end, he had hoped that such liberties might flourish under the Crown, but George III dashed his ambition. We sense Jefferson's bitterness in the Declaration's telling complaint about the king 'transporting hither foreign mercenaries'. Foreign! How historians have glossed over the significance of that word. In sending his Hessian hirelings against Britons, the Hanoverian monarch was in effect annulling their nationality.
The American Revolution is now described with anachronistic terminology. History books and tour guides talk about how, in 1775, minutemen and militias swarmed to resist 'the British' -- language that no one would or could have used at the time. Everyone involved was British, and public opinion in the British Isles was divided in exactly the same way as in the colonies. The American conflict was, in truth, a settlement by force of the ancient Tory--Whig dispute which, at least in New England, had passed the point of peaceful resolution. What we now call the American War of Independence would more accurately be termed the Second Anglosphere Civil War -- the First having been fought across England, Scotland, Ireland and America in the 1640s.

The first being a fight between the Crown and Parliament about who had the authority to levy and collect taxes, who had the authority to appoint officers of the realm and were those officer accountable to the laws of Parliament, and ultimate whose office is beholding to whom.
Among the sympathizers in Parliament, they stated these British colonists were only defending the natural rights of Englishmen.
As Adams later reflected, a third were for it, a third were against it, and a third remained in the middle. [Well, at least till the Crown enlisted the Indians around New York to join up.]
Many people in London could not understand why the big fuss. With the removal of the French threat and the natives relatively benign at the time, thing were never better.
