Global Death Panel: America?

1 post / 0 new

A new study in the British medical Journal Lancet finds that men in Iceland and women in Cyprus have the lowest risk of dying worldwide. And where is America? 49th for women and 45th for men behind Peru, Chile and Libya. Our screwed up - but hugely profitable for a few guys like Stephen J. Hemsley, CEO of United Healthcare, who earned more than $700 million for five years work - health care system is leading Americans to an early death, and nothing significant about it will change for years unless people in individual states rise up and start single payer health care systems.

The Post-Citizens United Era.

This month marks five years since the United States Supreme Court made their infamous ruling in the case of Citizens United v. FEC. That ruling turned a century of legal precedent on its head with the declaration that corporations have a First Amendment right to spend money in elections. And, that ruling opened the floodgates to massive spending levels in our political process.
