The Teabaggers Are Coming

By: lubbockleft | Blog: Lubbock Left

Exercising their freedom to assemble and make fools of themselves, literally dozens of misguided folks will converge at the courthouse to wave teabags around and listen to windbags talk on tax day. As near as I can make out, the guiding principles of the teabaggers seem to be a strange conflation of hard-line Christianity and selective outrage over fiscal policy.

We Need a National Insurance Option

By: lubbockleft | Blog: Lubbock Left

The way I see it, there are two systematic problems with American health care: (1) It's too expensive, and (2) it's not available to everyone. Everything costs too much in the health care industry, and having the federal government be a major player in the economics of health care is the way to lower costs. I believe that the federal government can bring bargaining power, liability protection, and choice to our broken medical system. And, I believe that the first steps are going to be taken in the next two years.
