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...

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...

Vermont Senate passes health care bill that includes provision for a single payer option

MONTPELIER, VT — With an overwhelming 28-2 vote, the Senate today passed the Healthy Vermont bill (S.88). Senator Doug Racine (D-Chittenden) and the Health and Welfare Committee brought the bill to the Senate floor.

The bill empowers the Health Care Reform Commission to hire a team of experts to custom design a health care system for Vermont. The experts will bring at least three options to the governor and legislature early next year, and one of those options must be a “single payer” plan.
