iSinglePayer iPhone App Censored by Apple

PALO ALTO, CA –Apple, Inc. has censored an iPhone application promoting health insurance reform in the United States.

iSinglePayer, an iPhone application that advocates for single-payer health care reform was rejected from the App Store by Apple because it is “politically charged.” The application displays charts and bullet points about single-payer health care systems, and it allows users to call members of congress. iSinglePayer even calculates your local congressperson using GPS, and displays the amount of money donated to each congressperson from the health sector.

NewsHour last night had a discussion about how the $5 Billion in cuts to Medicare would affect Medicare recipients--and the discussion was almost impossible to follow as both participants seemed to dance around real issues. I was at a loss as to how to summarize what I'd heard, then realized that was a feature not a bug. No mention of increasing numbers of people aging into Medicare, btw.

Also unmentioned: cuts to Medicaid.

Fantastic, as both programs are will be having larger numbers of recipients, but no real indication of that effect. Sheesh. Well, unfunded mandates for individuals and states.... That'll please the voters.

I'm at my library using their computers--and I can't get the copy function to work. Wonder why. So can't paste URL, etc., but I'm going to buy a new PC today or tomorrow. Tried to revive the old one--no luck. No more good money after bad on that baby (but NJ does have $25 cash for clunkers on PCs when a new one is purchased...well, covers some of the sales tax--but it's only as a gift certificate for the store the PC's purchased from...).
