Most Universal Health Care is NOT Single Payer…

The ultimate goal of health care reform should be universal health insurance. It’s about creating a system in which every American has access to the health care they need when they need it, without losing everything they have worked for in the process. It’s about making the system affordable and

SCOTUS Case to Decide Whether Corporations Can Be Religious

Today, two very large for-profit corporations – arts and crafts behemoth Hobby Lobby and cabinet-maker Conestoga Wood Specialties – argued before the Supreme Court, to ask that they be allowed to deny employees access to  contraceptive coverage mandated under the Affordable Care Act. Under the ACA, employer health plans must cover

Pro Lefty Michael Moore: Obamacare is “Awful”

What is wrong with Michael Moore, really? For that matter, what is it about so many professional lefties that they are preternaturally disposed to bitch about good things more than they are to praise the good things and advocate for improvements they think are necessary. I mean, I like many

The Difference Between Democrats & Today’s GOP on Health Care

I won't give glowing praise for Democrats and a complete dismissal of Republicans on health care throughout the last century, because Democrats were only slightly better than Republicans when it came to fixing the complete mess our health care financing system has become.  But this isn't about history, it's about

The One Truth Romney Told at the First Debate: He and GOP Will Kill Medicare!

I can’t believe so many think Romney won last night’s debate. Apparently, those who did were looking at style, and ignoring the words coming out of the candidates’ mouths.  Good thing voters aren’t as dumb as most pundits. Mark my words; seniors and those who have worked for 30+ years
