The Communist Party USA was supportive of several candidates in the 2004 election cycle including Frank Barbaro, Cynthia McKinney, Barack Obama, Betty Castor, Nancy Farmer and Inez Tenenbaum. It would be helpful for each district to single out House seats that can be swung from Republican to Democrat to develop our list of key races, which includes progressive Frank Barbaro in New York and Cynthia McKinney in Georgia. A number of exciting candidates are emerging in the Senate, in the first place Barak Obama in Illinois, and also several progressive women including Betty Castor seeking to retain retiring Bob Graham's seat as Democrat; Nancy Farmer seeking to defeat Kit Bond in Missouri; Inez Tenenbaum seeking to retain retiring Fritz Hollings seat as Democrat.
The Communist Party USA actively campaigned for Obama during his successful 2004 Illinois Senate race. Activists from Illinois were immersed in the campaign to elect Barak Obama to the U.S. Senate. Obama won a landslide victory in the March 16 Democratic primary. If Obama wins in November, it would be a historic victory for the Communist party. It was a victory for political independence and grassroots, coalition, and issue oriented politics over the machine and money, said John Bachtell, Illinois Communist Party district organizer.
From a November 21 2004 report to the Communist Party USA National Committee "The Communist Party USA and the 2004 Elections: Build the Party, Build the Coalitions. Started a new Young Communist club by the end of the year. A total of 19 new members in the YCL and Party. A new club in Saginaw emerged from a national/district team that helped on a local campaign which elected a township trustee. A new club in the Upper Peninsula formed after a visit by local Communist Party leaders. New clubs in Lansing and Ann Arbor will be formed by the end of the year. 27 new members and an increase the YCL to 2500 a week. This in the process of participating in the movement from Illinois to Wisconsin to put that state over the top for Kerry, participating in the historic election of Barak Obama to the US Senate, and the successful campaign of Melissa Bean, defeating incumbent Republican Congressman Philip Crane.

So what if they announced another extension? Bush gave everyone a six month extension on his drug program and not one Republican whined about that.

I'm curious, if you had insurance before you were paying for people who did NOT have "personal responsibility" and refused to buy insurance. That's right....your insurance costs were HIGHER to cover those who had no insurance. Did you like that? Are you someone who makes excuses for moochers?

"Bush Issued A Similar Delay During Medicare Part D Implementation

Bush Administration Waived Fees For Seniors Who Faced Enrollment Deadline

Under Medicare Part D. A May 2006 McClatchy article pointed out steps taken under former President George W. Bush to waive penalties and extend enrollment deadlines for seniors under his Medicare Part D rollout:

With pressure mounting to extend next Monday's enrollment deadline for the Medicare prescription-drug benefit, the Bush administration took another small step in that direction Tuesday, waiving penalty fees for very low-income seniors and people with disabilities who sign up late.

The move follows a recent administration decision to allow the same impoverished beneficiaries to sign up for Medicare drug coverage until Dec. 31.[McClatchy, 5/9/06]

Communist Party policy.
In undermining a nation such as the United States, the infiltration of the educational process is of prime importance. The Communists have made the infiltration of schools and colleges one of the major considerations in their psychological warfare designed to gain control of American youth. By such "cultural" work, the Soviet fifth column obtains an influence, directly or indirectly, over at least a portion of American youth. Some of the young men entering our armed forces, and some of the young women who must support them, are brought within the orbit of pro-Communist thinking, to the detriment of our national security. Future community leaders are also affected. Many by-products benefic to the Communist infiltration, is concealed Communists in education or their friends become sponsors of Communist fronts, aid in financing Communist causes, and sometimes play a part in influencing the attitudes of certain scientists, specific church circles, and government agencies.
As early as 1924, in lectures delivered at the Sverdlov University in Moscow, Stalin specified "cultural and educational organizations" as valuable allies in the Communist battle for world Communism. This lectures are now the Foundations of Leninism, published and studied widely by the Communists. The extensive infiltration began in the schools and colleges of this country encouraged by American recognition of Soviet Russia, and stimulated by the Open Letter to the Party. The Trojan horse policy of the Communist Front, which had been initiated at the Seventh World Congress of the Communist International, gave added impetus to this activity. They considered that enough progress had been made in the schools and colleges to justify a special article of directives be issue called The Communist. The article, "The Schools and the People's Front, laid it down as a necessity that "Marxist-Leninist analysis must be injected into every class. In order that this might be accomplished successfully, the Party must take careful steps to see that all teachers are given thorough education in the teachings of Marxism-Leninism. It was stressed that "Communist teachers are faced with a tremendous social responsibility. They must affect the children's thinking, and they must mobilize other teachers. But all of this was to be done from the work in the classroom to the agitation among other teachers "without exposing themselves”.
This is the instruction which runs through all directives to the infiltrators of our schools and colleges. They must exercise their Communist influence, without exposing themselves. Only when teachers have really mastered Marxism-Leninism will they be able to inject it into their teaching at the least risk of exposure.

But I am asking how any of that applies to reading, writing and arithmetic. Is communistic arithmetic different from democratic arithmetic? Are the multiplication tables the same? Does 2+2= 4 in communist arithmetic? What sinister message lurks in arithmetic?
Can you do simple arithmetic? What does Sara Palin and your power meter say about arithmetic?

Ironic , that when the evil Republican party wanted a lousy one year delay, they were called every name in the book, plus a couple I had to look up in a dictionary. That was my point. The delays don't bother me a bit, otherwise.I AM curious, as to how many people have actually received treatment under Obamacare. Just curious. I don't see Obamacare being repealed, but even some Democrats are in favor of some changes in the program.

I don't remember the Republicans (the Bush administration) being called anything for Bush's drug plan extensions (there was more than one). In fact, no one called them anything. Every single big government program has problems in the beginning. Medicare, Social Security, etc.....all had problems that took years to straighten out. Obamacare won't be repealed. Nor should it be. It was a Republican plan (Heritage Foundation) that Republicans all the way back to Nixon tried to get implemented. The Republicans' own presidential candidate put it into effect. The only reason Republicans now are against it is because they know that when people finally realize how lucky they are to have it (just like the Democrats' Social Security & Medicare) it will be a lose/lose for the GOP. The GOP already has dwindling demographics. Old white people are the last bastion of the GOP. Which is ironic because they vote against their best interests when they vote Republican. When they are gone, the GOP is doomed. They know that. They are ON RECORD saying that they FEAR Obamacare's success.

looks like Bush's plan was a lot more popular than Obama's. By the way, I don't recall Democrats being against it then. Your interpretation of the future of the Republican party is flawed, in part because your contempt of all things Republican. You see what you want to see, which reduces your credibility. But, if you think you're soon going to be living in a world of chirping songbirds, pink sunshine and free medical care for all because the nasty old Republican party will be dead and gone, good. Overconfidence in an opponent is always desirable.

I like the change from Dumbya's Great Recession and warmongering just fine. Should have come sooner. The CPUSA has about as much influence in U.S. politics as the WCTU. The old red paranoia ain't working like it used to.

I bet if the ancient Romans could field a 25 man baseball team they could give the Cubbies a run for their money, though I think Obama is a White Sox fan.

Social Security and Medicare are unsustainable in their present form. Many Republicans spoke against Medicare Part D. Medicare patients do not have the treatment choices that others do because some doctors and hospitals won't accept Medicare patients.. The same is true for Obamacare. The poor start for program is only the tip of the iceberg. Medical care quality and availability will suffer. Get this straight, Victoria. Medical care is not a right because no one is required to practice medicine.
