It's a step in the right direction.

On some radio or TV cable stations such as MSNBC, I hear that Obama will do well because of health care. That this is wonderful. On other radio and TV stations, I hear that this is the best thing that could have happened to Republicans. That it will help them win in Novermber. People do not seem to know what the Affordable Care act will do for them. Many echo the right-wing talk shows in their comments.

Then others say that people need health care and that this is a good thing. I do. None seem to know about the Heritage Foundation plan for health care and that it even had a mandate in the form of a tax, and this was a Republican idea. Very few mention this. Ezra Klein on MSNBC shows the documents of the Heritage Foundation plan on TV last week.

The right-wing people talk as though the poor, or uneducated, or unemployed do NOT deserve health care and that they need to "get a job" - "take a bath"- and go get their health own care. They say they don't want to pay for your health care or education. It all sounds like the poor and uneducated are despised.

Strange, these people who complain about having to pay for health care for others never complain (for one example) about paying for prisoners to have health care, and for prisoners even just to stay in prison. They don't complain that they pay for the crooked politicians to have health care.

Health care is a deal-breaker for me. I will only vote for those who are for health care for all. And, Thank God for Bernie Sanders.

He is a gem of a person.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
