Thinking the unthinkable. As horrible as it is to think of this, the wise are doing just that.

deception

Today’s GOP is the equivalent of a 1960’s Madison Avenue ad agency aggressively promoting the benefits of cigarette smoking, fully knowing that if they’re successful, millions will suffer and die but only caring about making the wealthy people they work for, wealthier.

Romney’s latest set of magic political underwear will not protect him nor the fantasy he wants to promote about being able to repeal the ACA.

In what can only be described as a surprising outcome, Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the four liberal Supreme Court judges to uphold the Affordable Care Act and its key provision of the individual mandate.

Romney’s ideal America is one where the wealthy buy their own White House and Congress, tax revenues are rerouted from the poor, elderly and majority into the pockets of the wealthy and all regulations that prevent the wealthy from harming the public are removed.

In his slippery slope argument against the ACA, Justice Alito simply asks us to consider all the people who’ve been bankrupted and have lost their homes having to pay for their own sudden burial and the ongoing costs of remaining dead.

single payer - ca

Single payer seems dead legislatively in California, not just as a bill but as an issue. It died not due to insurance industry opposition but due to the outrageous bullying tactics of its supporters. Nice job, BullyProgs.

Our congress has made known one path to a balanced budget and what they refer to as “prosperity” for the American people.  It is a path that is wrought with pain and sacrifice for the vast majority of Americans and extreme wealth and comfort for the rest.  The proposal calls for tax […]

As some people know my biggest issue is healthcare for personal reasons. I just want to share with people the journey I went through learning about healthcare systems to try to figure out what real improvement would look like. Most of my initial perceptions of what a healthcare system needs […]
