Fair Elections Now Act

Thursday: Let’s Discuss the Fair Elections Now Act

While single-payer is the most popular reform in polling of the public, physicians and nurses, it was largely “off the table” in Congress during the reform debate. It is clear that members of Congress, of both parties, are dependent on campaign money from the industries that benefit most from preserving the current broken health care system.

What can single-payer advocates do to change this situation?

Healthcare-NOW! has endorsed the Fair Elections Now Act as one way to loosen the grip of for-profit interests over our democracy. ...

Immigration deform

Immigration reform could lead to biometric Social Security card

Because she was born in Chicago, Karen Peisker never imagined her bosses at United Parcel Service would suddenly question her right to legally work in the country.

But last month, an electronic employee verification system flagged the truck driver for possible identity fraud because she had been using her married name, Rivera, on her driver's license since 2007. Though Peisker joined the company in 1985, it put her at risk of being fired until she proved she was who she said she was.

Contact PBS ombudsman Michael Getler at 703-739-5290 and demand that Front Line correct its coverage of the Baucus 8

Margaret Flowers: PBS Shies from Single-Payer Debate

“Obama’s Deal” endeavored to reveal the significant influence of health industry dollars on our political process; however, as in Frontline’s “Sick Around America,” the producers did a disservice by the failure to educate the public about the bigger picture of the health care situation in this nation and the range of possible solutions.

Curiously, just as it was in the health “debate,” single-payer, improved “Medicare for All,” was excluded from the film.

As Many Avoid IRS’s Grip, a Tax Debate Ensues

That’s the portion of American households that owe no income tax for 2009. The number is up from 38 percent in 2007, and it has become a popular talking point on cable television and talk radio. With Tax Day coming on Thursday, 47 percent has become shorthand for the notion that the wealthy face a much higher tax burden than they once did while growing numbers of Americans are effectively on the dole.

Why does Andy Stern have a job?

Andy Stern poses with HCAN't bloggers at the offices of the SEIU.

Readers of this blog know all about Stern's shameful role in the public option bait and switch hoax.

I just recently learned of his appointment to the Steal Our Retirement Commission.

I really can't think of anything more unpopular with workers than looting social security. Stern clearly regards the membership as pawns. Read below the fold...

Why Time and CNN stink out loud

It is a question of ownership. The current owners are not interested in running news organizations; or even maximizing returns for shareholders. The current ownership regard their news properties and an agit-prop operation to promote their corporate agenda. Read below the fold...
