For the second time in a week – a bill to create a single-payer universal healthcare system in the nation’s biggest state received a majority of the vote in the California state Senate. Unfortunately – for the second time – the bill came up two votes shy of getting the type of majority it needed to pass the state Senate – as four Democrats abstained from voting – four Democrats who were more afraid of facing competitors funded by the for-profit health insurance industry than doing the right thing.

Our healthcare system is a national tragedy that leaves 53 million Americans one illness or accident away from financial ruin – and claims the lives of more than 40,000 uninsured Americans every year. We must break the lobbying power of the for-profit health insurance leeches – who have already been outlawed in every other developed nation in the world – and make healthcare a basic human right in America, too.

The No BS Guide To The Upcoming Jill Stein Recount

It's almost like they have something to hide.

With one Jill Stein-led recount effort already underway in Wisconsin and additional recounts pending in Michigan and Pennsylvania, supporters of Donald Trump are now taking legal action to stop what they say is a baseless attempt to smear their candidate.

In Pennsylvania, Trump himself has joined up with the local Republican Party to block Jill Stein's request for a recount.

In Wisconsin, Trump Super PACS are doing the dirty work and have asked a federal judge to stop what they say is a violation of due process rights.
