Despite the Supreme Court’s decision on the individual mandate to buy health insurance, the Affordable Care Act remains flawed because it will leave at least 26 million people uninsured and does nothing to reduce health-care costs. We need publicly funded universal health care – we need single-payer Medicare-for-all.
Instead of mandating everyone purchase insurance from a for-profit company, we should expand and improve what we already know works: Medicare, whose administrative costs are only 3 percent. With Medicare-for-all, we would save $400 billion annually.
Medicare is loved, cost-effective and should be improved ... continue reading »
I read your column “Contemptuous government.” If you think Willard Mitt Romney is going to repeal Obamacare, one side of your brain is manufacturing BS and the other side is buying it. You’re an eternal optimist? Really? This nightmare is REAL.

Eventually private insurance companies will go bankrupt by being forced to accept those who, for instance, have just been diagnosed with cancer. That in turn will lead to a single-payer (government) program, further eroding our freedom ... continue reading »
I see Rush and other political and media pundits are all over Romney for what they call his “lukewarm” response to Obama’s amnesty for some Hispanic youths. So if I’ve got this right, it would make sense for Romney to obviously alienate, at this particular time, Hispanics all over the country when they are such a large voting bloc. Duh!
The Supreme Court sided with people instead of the insurance companies. I have to say, this is a surprise … but a very welcome surprise.
(Yes, I know, the sky will fall, the soul of the nation has been lost, this is the end of America as we know it … yeah, yeah.)
Sorry, guys; maybe next time.
You and Michael Savage keep saying Mitt is running for the presidency. He is not. His actions show he’s running AWAY, not for.
