Liberal Angst?

healthcare imagesNPR is reporting that White House aides and communications director Dan Pfeiffer says the White House is sure 'Liberal Angst' over healthcare will go away once Obama signs the upcoming Healthcare bill. According to Dan Pfeiffer, White House communications director,  "We're not overly concerned about these things, first and foremost because there isn't an election tomorrow, not an election the next day."  People close to the negotiations say that the House will roll over on the public option, and is only asking that federal antitrust protections be stripped from insurance companies, and that the insurance exchange be run federally rather than by the states - pretty much dropping all the other progressive provisions in the House bill so it can get through a Senate controlled by bought-off corporate-owned shills like Ben Nelson, Joe Lieberman, and Mary Landreau.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
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
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
