Barack Obama Spins the Facts, Takes Single-Payer Health Care Off the Table President Barack Obama has taken single-payer healthcare reform off the table. The problem lies in the fact that his explanation for doing so is at odds with the facts, and it is time to hold him accountable.

PA Dem State Committee Takes Single-Payer Healthcare Mainstream, Unanimously Endorses It It may be premature to suggest that single-payer is on the verge of passing in Pennsylvania, but after the State Democratic Committee unanimously endorsed the Single-Payer Legislation and three Gubernatorial candidates pledged to sign it when it reaches their desks, the light at the end of the tunnel is clearly in sight.

Poll Excludes Single-Payer Healthcare; Respondents Implicitly Endorse It Anyway HCAN, a coalition of organizations advocating and lobbying for President Barack Obama's proposed healthcare reform plan, recently released poll purporting to show broad public support for the Obama plan. The poll meticulously avoided any specific reference to Single-Payer healthcare reform, but the survey results strongly suggest that the public prefers that option even though it was excluded from the questionnaire.

Health Insurance Monopolies Are Illegal. There Is No Insurance Antitrust Exemption It is widely perceived that the McCarran-Ferguson Act of 1945 bestowed an exemption to federal anti-trust law upon the insurance industry which has enabled a handful of health insurance companies to grow into gargantuan predatory monopolies immune to anti-monopoly legislation. In fact the Act was intended to empower both the federal government and the states to enforce antitrust regulations against the insurance industry.

Chris Christie's Many Tales From the Dark Side Chris Christie has burst onto the national scene in recent years. Despite having many critics and detractors he has become something of a darling of the mainstream media, and is viewed by many as a potential successful Republican candidate for the presidency. Is Bridgegate his obituary or an opportunity to overcome adversity?

Are pollsters awakening from a long slumber In New Hampshire and elsewhere? For reasons no one seems to understand, pollsters have cut back decisively on their national and state Democratic polls since early December despite the fact that the early state primaries are fast approaching. In New Hampshire. For example, there had been only one poll in December, and that one was in the field early on from December 3rd to December 8th. That compares with five New Hampshire polls in November.

Don't Listen to the Media or Polls: BERNIE SANDERS IS WINNING!!! The media is fond of writing off Bernie Sanders, but consider the fact that Bernie is racking up a number of impressive primary and caucus wins that seriously challenge the notion that Hillary Clinton is the candidate most capable of winning in November.

ED RENDELL'S HEALTHCARE HOAX (AND THE SINGLE-PAYER SOLUTION) With Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell's Prescription For Pennsylvania all but dead in its original form, his political allies in the State Legislature are intent upon salvaging what they can via an amended bill they hope will pass the Pennsylvania House this Monday, March 17th. Gone is "Cover All Pennsylvanians," a title that was never even remotely remotely appropriate. Ready to replace it is something much worse.
