Death Panels on Veteran's Day

death panel imagesCould we do better than death panels on Veteran's day? On the eve of Veterans Day, a team of researchers from Harvard Medical School released a study finding that 2,266 veterans under the age of 65 died last year because they didn't have health insurance. That “translates to six preventable deaths per day” the researchers noted, and more than twice the number killed in Afghanistan since the war began in 2001. I'll say it again - Medicare Part E - for everyone and that includes our Veterans.

Hey- it's not just death panels for Veterans - Republican Jim DeMint would like us all not to get any type of affordable health at all. Even if a public option is removed from the Senate's health care legislation, Sen. Jim DeMint is urging all Republicans to kill the bill -- lest they help "create a monster." The monster? All those who would prevent him from getting big campaign bucks from the healthcare industry.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
