TrumpCare: Freedom For The Corporations

I am READY FOR BERNIE 2020. TrumpCare has unfortunately been passed by the House. Note Republicans will have no problem using the “nuclear option” in the Senate. Republicans are not wimps in pushing their agenda like Obama. Democrats had control of both houses of Congress for the first two years of the Obama presidency. Due […]

Trump And ObamaCare Versus Universal Health Care

ObamaCare did not go far enough. Especially in our nation where the third cause of death is medical treatment not the lack of medical treatment. The first two causes are cancer and heart disease. Yet despite Americans dying from visits to doctors and hospitals due to malpractice, Barack Obama wanted to kiss Republican butts and back “tort […]

Republican Governor Of Michigan Wants Socialist Medicaid For Flint

The children of Flint Michigan have been poisoned with lead in their drinking water. Now the Republican Governor of Michigan has a solution! Governor Rick Snyder wants President Barrack Obama to extend Medicaid to the children of Flint, Michigan.   My question to Republican Governor Synder: If you allow federal funds from a National Health […]

Obama Care: Why It Needs To Be Stronger

Within six months of Barrack Obama’s taking office I began to realize he did not have the fire in the belly to pursue President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “Second Bill Of Rights“. But let us restrict our discussion in this article to his wimpy attempts at health care reform. The issue is not simply that Obama […]

ObamaCare Computer Glitches Vs Windows 8.1

I was away on vacation and assisted my sister and brother-in-law in their upgrade from Windows 8.0 to Windows 8.1 It went ok but they had some problems with links on many websites. When I returned I upgraded my Windows 8 computer to Windows 8.1 —DISASTER! The Dell technician tried several fixes but when they […]

So What The Individual Mandate Uses A Tax

Once again the Republicans are up to their old tricks and trying to “spin” the individual mandate ruling by the Supreme Court  to serve their political ends. The problem with all the political pundits is that the presumptions of the entire discussion are more involved. Taxes are not simply to raise revenue but a means […]

Birthers And Health Care: Birthers We Want Your Children

The Supreme Court says that Obama Care is legal birthers! The GOP seems to have timed the contempt vote to coincide with the Supreme Court Ruling but where they in for a surprise. While I still think Obama is a wimp for not standing up to the birthers and the tea party, at least  today […]

Supreme Court Health Care Ruling Might Help Progressives

What you say? Am I nuts? Well my friends and family might agree there but since we do not have a public option let me explain how the a possible full or partial overturn of Obama Care may help Progressives. While people are going to get hurt I believe a negative Supreme Court Health Care […]

Republicans “Outed”: Throw Grand Ma Over The Cliff

Remember when the Republicans and their fellow travellers in the Tea Party where whining about “Death Panels”? Gosh I haven’t seen any, have you? The GOP may have met their Waterloo but the question is do Democrats have a thirst for red meat when they see it? This Progressive Social Democratic blogger wants to go […]

Vermont: Single Payer Vs. The Ryan Plan

With all the right wing nonsense going on in Washington DC and Obama leading the charge of the “Castrati Brigade” to make ever more concessions, one hopeful piece of news is that Vermont’s House passed a bill to give that state Universal Health Care under a Single Payer System! We need Vermont’s Senator Bernie Sanders […]

Democrats Have To Be More Aggressive

Wow Obama actually spoke up! Big deal he wasted an entire year being “Super Wimp”! Republicans know how to go on the offensive and it is about time that Democrats learn to do the same! As I mentioned in my prior post, some conservatives are talking about gaining control of the House so they can […]

#HCR: Obama Great Victory?

Please explain to me why we had to wait till now for this watered down law? Obama wanted to have a Kumbaya rapport with Republicans in his stupid quest for bipartisanship!  Who the hell cares about bipartisanship?  We won the elections they lost! What’s the problem with that? I hope we liberals have won with […]

Obama's Secret Plan To Rescue The Public Option

Many of us are very dis-enchanted with the current situation concerning Health Care Reform and the lack of the Public Option! I am happy to report we have an EXCLUSIVE speech by President Barrack Obama to rescue the Public Option! Finally “Change We Can Believe In”. Amazing isn’t it that after one year we Democrats […]

Stop Attacking Dennis Kucinich

I fully support Congressman Dennis Kucinich in his opposition to the Health Care Bill as it now stands without a strong public option. While Obama was cow towing to closet Republican Joe Lieberman  he should have been paying attention to the people who elected him not the likes of Joe Lieberman who supported John McCain. […]

Top Ten Reasons Republicans Get Away With The Filibuster

Actually it started before Barrack Obama became President. Democrats have been playing their favorite party game of “masochism”! We had a majority in the House of Representatives and Nancy Pelosi did not use her constitutional mandate to end the financing of the Iraq War. This allowed Republicans to see that most Democrats don’t have the […]

Senator Judd Gregg Versus The Middle Class

I heard a segment of Senator Judd Gregg’s interview on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell show. He laid out some plans to punish people who are overweight and engage in unhealthy behaviors in terms of health insurance costs. I guess he would support the removal of Trans-fatty acids in fast foods! After all when hard pressed and […]

California Insurance Costs Skyrocket – It’s Called Freedom

First a question for Republicans! How is all that Corporate Free Marketie de-regulation thingy working out for ya! Huh?  (Wink). When will Americans ever learn that a decrease in Government Regulation does not translate into an increase in individual freedom! Instead a vacuum is created for the bully to take away the freedom of individual […]

Massachusetts – Charge Of The Castrati Brigade

I disagree with The Huffington Post that a loss in Massachusetts is the loss of Universal Health Care! In fact as a Progressive Social Democrat I welcome it! When I heard the recent predictions I was actually laughing since this is the pathetic  result of fighting the “Party of No” by being the “Party of […]

The Audacity Of Impotence

Following in that great martial tradition laid down by Nancy Pelosi, who had two years control of the House even before Barrack Obama became President but was to impotent to impeach George Bush or defund the war, our new President joins with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid in our Democratic Party’s new “Change We Can […]

Separation Of Corporation And State

When is the American middle class going to wake up and demand the separation of corporation and state! We must address this issue before the health care issue. The problems passing real health care reform are mere symptoms of the underlying disease that is infecting the “decision making processes” of our society! That disease is […]

Starter House But Insurance Cartel Owns The Mortgage

This bill is to weak and requires audacity to hope that rates will not skyrocket due to insurance company greed. I am afraid I cannot go along with Senator Harkins analogy that the Senate Bill is a “starter house not a mansion but we have to start somewhere!” I must number myself among the “Democrats […]

Senator Ben Nelson Blue Dog Hypocrite

Nebraska Senator Ben Nelson is a damned hypocrite who helped kill real Health Care Reform. He whines against both abortion and government “socialism”. That is why he was against the public option! Yet he has jumped on board to give the 60th vote in the Senate in return for unique “Socialist Medicaid” concessions to his state […]

Six Reasons For Progressives To Kill The Bill

Before I present list I would suggest you listen to this “prediction” from The Frank Factor, a liberal progressive internet show/podcast that aired last February. His prediction about being nice to Republicans and how Democrats compromising to death is true! See video box below. When are some Democrats going to learn that being “nice” does […]

Kill The Bill

I believe Howard Dean is correct! This Health Care Bill is so weak that it does not deserve to pass. In the video below you will hear President Obama followed by Howard Dean. The President just does not seem to get it. He believes that the issue here is “The perfect is the enemy of […]

Joe Liebermann Saves Tiger Woods From Corporate Defections

Image via Wikipedia Tiger Woods who seems to have more woman than Bill Clinton had cigars was about to loose almost every corporate sponsor he had! Well that was the case until today when Senator Joe Liebermann became the man of the hour and decided to help Tiger Woods keep his corporate sponsors. It will […]
