How about lowering the age of eligibility to "conception"?

bankster imagesUSA TODAY is reporting- When the swine flu vaccine was most scarce, health officials gave thousands of doses to corporate clinics at Walt Disney World,Toyota, defense contractors, oil companies and cruise lines."As a Democratic member of Congress asked, "Was corporate America buying their way out of an illness?"  I think the answer is pretty obvious.  Let's not forget that Goldman Sachs got more swine flu shots to pass out at their private, in-house medical clinic for their senior officers on Wall Street, than did some hospitals in the New York area.

The group of 10 Democrats working to break an impasse on the government insurance option are considering changes to other parts of the bill, including creating a Medicare buy-in lowered to age 55.  How about lowering the age of eligibility to "conception"?

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
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."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
