It is disengenous when conservatives claim that Health Insurance companies are prevented from competing across state lines. I surveyed the top 20 companies in America and every single one of them operated in multiple states, and the majority operate in EVERY state. What the conservatives are really saying is that they want insurers to be able to pick the state with the most lax insurance regulations and have it regulate their activities in every state.

How can / Why are we not talking about the TPP that is happening in Dallas right now, (May 8th-18th)?

9 Countries & 600 Corp's isn't news at any given level in this Country???

How about the G8 & NATO Summits that will be in Chicago, starting on May 18th?

Again, the G8, NATO Summit, this isn't news / talk worthy?

Thanks!

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."
