Thanks To GOP - 9 Million Children In Danger

Republicans failed to repeal Obamacare - but they still might succeed in throwing the healthcare system into chaos.

Even though it had been on their calendar for months, Congress did nothing about the deadline for reauthorizing the popular federal Children's Healthcare Insurance Program or CHIP which expired September 30.

And nearly two weeks have passed since without action.

Nine million kids depend on CHIP to get coverage.

Isn't this a perfect example of why we need to scrap our patchwork system once and for all and replace it with Medicare for All?

Dear Professor Mr. Ed,

It is spelled sycophant NOTsychophant. Maybe your grammar teacher was Ou812.

@50 DS in spite of 8 paragraphs of obstreperous behavior, you and the rest of the washed up lefties are outsmarted again by President Trump.

LOL, give it up, ladies; "your" on page "to." Whoosh! AKA Chelsea misses the irony. Hotdog is the irony. Spelling and grammar isn't the point; hypocrisy is. Read the thread. Or not. What's the point?

"...outsmarted again by President [sic] Trump." This from someone who voted for, ah, "President" Trump. If that is not a classic case of projection, then what the hell is! Like I said, Hotdog is the irony. Keep the hits coming.

Slán agaibh.

What the GOP is trying to do to the ACA is disgusting at best and down right evil at worst. Trying to deny and take insurance from the most vulnearble people in our society is in of itself sick. Being poor isn't a crime and neither is being a child, getting sick or aging and they're trying to punish each one of these groups so that Donald Chump can leave more money to his grandchildren. I work with insurance companies al the time and there is nothing more frustrating than having to discharge someone from my facility knowing full well that they're not ready to go home but the insurance coompany's clinical staff has reviewed their progress and thinks that there's no need to pay for more therapy. Another thing that is extremely frustrating is watching these commercials that try to steer seniors who are eligble for medicare into what's known as HMO. These managed care policies are the abssolute worst because their only concern is to save the company bottom line.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

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

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
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
Van Jones, cofounder of and author of The Green Collar Economy
