Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

Extra deaths from people who lose coverage.



They calculated this by looking at how many lives the Massachusetts plan saved when implemented and reversing the number.



I have a suggestion. I… Continue
