You can keep your own doctor!

You can keep your own plan!

35 Democrats now are voting with Republicans to delay Obamacare.

Now Unions are calling for the repeal of Obamacare.

"House votes for delays on Obamacare; some Democrats give support to GOP move"

Schneider's failed propaganda

The right has no practical answer to Obamacare, so they obfuscate

In last week's Crossroads, Christian Schneider tried to defend the practically indefensible, Gov. Scott Walker's immoral and fiscally irresponsible decision to reject hundreds of millions of federal dollars to strengthen Wisconsin's popular BadgerCare program.

In the process, Schneider deploys every propaganda trick he can muster to defend Walker's controversial decision. In so doing, he provides a textbook example of the right-wing conspiracy to confuse public opinion about the Affordable Care Act (also known as Obamacare) as we approach its critical full implementation phase.

Deconstructing Schneider's melange of misleading claims and chopped logic can help clear the air as we undertake the vitally important task of reforming our nation's badly frayed health care system by guaranteeing that every American has the freedom to obtain quality affordable health coverage, no matter what.

....The fact is that the Affordable Care Act is one of the largest and most pragmatic reforms that America has undertaken in decades. It has many moving parts because it seeks to fix rather than replace our current health care system. There are going to be many bumps in the road.

Making the law work is a critically important task because if it is repealed, and the private health insurance system is allowed to continue to implode, the freedom of all Americans to control their own health care decisions will continue to decline. Insurance companies will continue to deny coverage to people with pre-existing conditions, throw people off coverage when they are diagnosed with cancer and other life-threatening diseases, charge discriminatory rates to women, early retirees, small businesses, the self-employed and throw young adults off their parents' policies.

Conservatives commentators such as Schneider and politicians such as Walker are muddying the waters in every way they can because they have no real answers for average Americans who just want the freedom and opportunity to obtain affordable health care for themselves and their families, no matter what. The misleading propaganda they are using to poison the critical public discussion of health care reform also threatens our democratic capacity to reason together about vital public issues.

In the wake of President Obama's personal comments on race and the Trayvon Martin shooting, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said Sunday that the president's remarks were 'impressive' and the country still has a long way to go in addressing racial inequalities.

When McCain lost the 2008 presidential election to Obama, the Arizona senator mentioned race in his concession speech saying that "America today is a world away from the cruel and frightful bigotry of [a century ago.]. There is no better evidence of this than the election of an African-American to the presidency of the United States."

But on CNN's 'State of the Union' Sunday, McCain said that "we were probably too optimistic' after the election of the nation's first African-American president.

"I think old prejudices die hard," he said. "We have made significant progress, but I think recent events highlight the differences that remain."

McCain also said he doesn't question the jury's decision to acquit George Zimmerman in charges related to the death of Trayvon Martin, but said 'Stand Your Ground' laws throughout the country, including Arizona's, should be reviewed.

Grindr, the popular social app for “gay, bi and curious” men, was well represented at opening day of the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference. The app uses GPS to let users see which other users are near by.

Grindr Users Abound at CPAC 2013

HOH’s morning on Grindr started pretty quietly, with just one or two fresh-faced young men in close proximity. Many of the users we saw didn’t seem too worried about their orientation or political affiliation. Several users, in fact, broadcast their conservative credentials in their handles and showed their faces in their pictures.

As the day progressed, the number of nearby users steadily ticked upwards from three profiles just before 11 a.m. to 24 profiles (including two married guys) just after 4 p.m.

“With more than 4 million guys in 192 countries around the world — and approximately 10,000 more new users downloading the app every day — you’ll always find a new date, buddy, or friend on Grindr,” brags the app’s website.“Grindr is quick, convenient, and discreet. And it’s as anonymous as you want it to be.”
