L Grace - "I have appreciated Kuccinich through a couple of his runs for president but which of his legislation has he gotten passed into law?"

Ben - "There are US laws on the books that supposedly prevent states from adopting a single payer system of their own."

Kucinich recently proposed a bill that would EXCLUDE states that want to adopt their own single-payer health-care system from the laws to which Ben refers. It's not law YET, but it HAS passed thru committee.

L Grace,

I like the idea of thinking of our Representatives and Senators as either "for us," or "for the corporations," so that makes both Howard Dean and Kuccinich on the "for us" team and with our help they will be able to do anything.

Those categories make a ton of sense in what has become a very-confusing set of loyalites that we are seeing in our leaders.

I am suspicious when things get too simple, but "for us" or "for the corporations" categories will help us line up with the right people.

Is President Obama trying to straddle both worlds? And why?

(But Rush Limbaugh is in his very own category))
