Response to Nation Article on Single Payer: Improved Medicare for All is the Solution As the movement for improved Medicare for all gains momentum, liberal Democrats are providing cover for corporate Democrats failure to support single payer. One such false commentary was published by the Nation and authored by Joshua Holland. Margaret Flowers responds to Holland and shows the fault-filled nature of his arguments.

Yes, We Can Fix the ACA The US has the highest administrative costs, a third of our health care dollar goes to administration, and the US pays the highest prices for health care services and pharmaceuticals because we don't have an overall system that negotiates the prices. There is no rationale for the costs of care; it is based on what the market will bear.

Voters are Fired Up for Single Payer Creating Dilemma for Democrats -- Health Over Profit Polls have consistently shown that super-majorities of Democratic Party voters want single payer, but Democratic Party candidates keep telling them that they can't have it. The Democratic Party has refused to add Medicare for All to its healthcare platform despite resolutions introduced by single payer advocates. Even the Congressional Progressive Caucus refuses to include single payer health care in their "People's Budget."

]The People's Plan For Transformation In the face of multiple crises and kleptocratic governments that refuse to take appropriate actions, movements are rising in the United States and around the world. This is reminiscent of the uprising in the 1960s and 1970s when social movements were active on a number of fronts of struggle from civil rights to women's rights to war to the environment, poverty and more.

Why This Isn't the Time for the Public Option or Medicare for Some We have a healthcare crisis now and the means to solve it. The ACA is fundamentally flawed and cannot be tweaked into a universal program.

Unite To Change The Status Quo As the inauguration protests, the Women's Marches and the GOP protests in Philly showed this week, the broad social movement seems to be growing exponentially and some are escalating their tactics.

"Democracy Is Coming to the USA" Early indications of the Trump agenda signal lower taxes for the wealthy and corporations and greater military spending, which will likely trigger greater austerity measures for the rest of us. He intends to weaken the less-than-adequate current measures in place to mitigate the climate crisis. Trump's plans for health care are disastrous.

Final Phase In Battle To Stop Rigged Corporate Trade The debate on rigged corporate trade moves to the final phase -- the US House of Representatives. Right now opponents have the majority but an Obama Onslaught is expected. The movement against rigged corporate trade is going to have to escalate its campaign if we are going to hold the majority and stop fast track for the TPP and other rigged corporate trade agreements.

Shake Off Hypnosis, See Root Causes Of Crises the "global elite's prolonged war on the people of our world with the sole aim of pumping up their bottom line." That 'war' has come home and is being waged against people, primarily the most vulnerable, in the United States using both outright violence and institutionalized violence that creates poverty, hunger, illness and other injustices.

Climate Crisis Connects Us, Climate Justice Demands Unity What do rigged corporate trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Paris Treaty, an international climate agreement to be signed in 2015, have in common? They are both tools being pushed by the power elite to rip away our hopes for democracy and to commodify all things to monetize them for profit.

Open Letter to MoveOn: Time To Change Course On Obamacare It is with great sadness that I watch you making last-gasp desperate attempts to save Obamacare and Obama's reputation. You look foolish when you say that "Of course, it's a good law" at the same time as your constituents see through the Obamacare illusion. The law is becoming less popular because people are beginning to see through the false partisan claims of Democrats. And worse, you are actually playing right into the Rep

Revolution Of The Mind Is Underway there's a revolution of the mind under way, in which people's consciousness are raised as they become aware of the inability of the current governmental and economic systems to respond to the needs of people and the planet. When this is understood, then the revolutionary changes that seemed impossible become possible.

The Supreme Court Should Rule with the People Single payer has been supported by super majorities of the American people for more than a decade. This silenced majority of Americans who wanted real universal health care under a national health plan may get another opportunity to push for what they want if the Supreme Court rules with the people and against crony capitalist health care.

Republican and Democratic Plans for Medicare and Medicaid Misguided: Push for Privatization Accelerates Costs and Deaths Democrats and Republicans are missing the point by putting the emphasis on controlling Medicare and Medicaid costs without effectively addressing the reasons for our rising health care costs. Rather than embracing the Republican rhetoric which blames our public insurances, Democrats would do well to call out the real reason for our health care spending crisis and advocate for a national Medicare for all.

Ryan turns knife on Medicare, Medicaid Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the Republican chairman of the U.S. House Budget Committee, unveiled two proposals this week which if enacted would constitute a mortal threat to our nation's health -- particularly to the health of our seniors and our most vulnerable populations.

End Corporate Domination More than Advocacy We must Resist To succeed in creating the social change that we desperately need will require acts of protest and civil disobedience, a new culture of resistance as called for by leaders such as Mike Ferner of Veterans for Peace. It is time to recognize that our advocacy for peace, jobs, education, health, housing, human rights and environmental and economic justice is insufficient.

No Time for Fake Activism Hope and change require more than voting. We must reflect honestly on the factors that brought us to this point in time and commit to effective change. Corporate power controls the media and our government. What we must do to shift power back to the people is based on the principles of clarity and uncompromising independence.
