Hope you're not a young healthy male. Your costs could increase by as much as 50%. Even in your 30s, by as much as 49%.
It's already a big mess and hasn't even gotten off the ground yet.
No one knows what the heck is going on or how to get this Spruce Goose at 35,000 feet to fly at cruising speed.
Premium increases for healthy young males with individual policies will be well in excess of 100%.

Ah, demonstrating ignorance on yet another subject you know nothing about.
The Bronco was broken into while in police custody.
The LA County District Attorney's Office and the Medical Examiner's Office could not explain why 1.5 cm³ of blood were missing from the original 8 cm³ taken from Simpson and placed into evidence.
Defense medical expert Dr. Henry Lee of the Connecticut State Police Forensic Science Laboratory testified that the only way such a pattern of blood stain could appear on the sock was if Simpson had a "hole" in his ankle, or a drop of blood was placed on the sock while it was not being worn.
The gloves didn't fit.
Prosecutors claimed that the presence of O.J. Simpson's blood at the crime scene was the result of blood dripping from cuts on the middle finger of his left hand. Police noted his wounds on June 13, 1994, and asserted that these were suffered during the fatal attack on Ronald Goldman. However, the defense noted that none of the gloves found had any cuts.
The policeman who found the gloves turned out to be a virulent racist and perjured himself on the witness stand.
Fuhrman was called back to the witness stand by the defense to answer more questions about the discovery of the blood marks and leather glove that he supposedly found on Simpson's property hours after the murders took place. When questioned by attorney Gerald Uelmen, Fuhrman, with his lawyer standing by his side, pleaded the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination to avoid further questioning.
Bottom line, the jury was not about to convict Simpson on the basis of testimony from a racist cop and mountains of tainted evidence.
This is laughable. It has been poured over countless times by everyone and their uncle and most conclusions were negative regarding the judge and the piss-poor prosecution team, so bad that it doesn't matter how good or bad the defense was.

"The jury spent only three hours deliberating the case that had produced 150 witnesses over 133 days and had cost $15 million to try."

3 hours. Count 'em. Just 3 f*cking hours.

They were in a hurry to get down to Chicken Schack for chitlins...

Mostly black jury from low class ghetto L.A.

Go figure. We all know the verdict on THAT jury. The Goldman family understood the purely racist call from that jury and then proceeded to get another trial and verdict against him with a normal white jury for monetary damages. They won but O.J.'s lawyers told him to move to Florida where crime figures have long hid because the State's law are configured to protect criminal assets.

The Goldman family got little to nothing.

And then the Jerk robbed a guy at gunpoint in Vegas.

A turd like O.J. or Trayvon can try to hide but their smell always gives them away eventually.

Zimmerman might get the same but I don't think the jury is all black.

Kennedy inherited the war from Eisenhower, and by 1963 decided to pull out.

Because of that, Kennedy killed by the rightwing CIA in Dallas a few months later.

Kennedy replaced by fake Democrat LBJ, who in reality was a rightist warmonger embracing the CIA and military view of expanding the war in SE Asia. Gulf of Tonkin follows.

President Obama
US president Barack Obama saw progress in Washington this week on three items on the wishlist of legislative changes planned for his second term: the fight against climate change; equal rights for gay and lesbian couples; and the overhaul of immigration laws to legalise 11 million illegal immigrants.
Obama’s administration wants to see how the application of federal benefits for gay couples can be extended from the 13 states and the district of Columbia where same-sex marriages are permitted to the entire country following Wednesday’s two supreme court rulings on gay marriage cases.
Similarly, the president plans to direct changes from Washington that will allow the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to negotiate with individual states to limit carbon dioxide pollution from power plants.
Rather than take on the issue himself, Obama has left responsibility for the biggest changes in immigration laws in more than a quarter of a century in the hands of politicians on Capitol Hill. This has proved fruitful so far following the Senate’s 68 to 32 vote on Thursday, passing the bipartisan legislation on to House of Representatives.

The OJ trial should have been conducted in Santa Monica, where the jury would have been predominantly white. The prosecution moved the trial to downtown LA, where a black jury was inevitable.

Add a totally incompetent prosecution team and the verdict was inevitable.

Particularly when they made the case about spousal abuse instead of the blind rage that OJ felt when he found that his wife was screwing the Jewish waiter. Protecting Goldman removed the motive.

The Wall Street Journal was probably underestimating the increased costs to ease the pain.

Obama could redeem himself overnight by admitting it was a mistake, going back to the drawing board and allowing Republicans to contribute and vote on this kind of massive legislation.

Reid and Pelosi were like Laurel and Hardy. A comedy of errors.
