Load Up for the Holidays—and Watch Out for Those Uncles

I got this email from Organizing for America last night:

Friend – 

Ah, the week of Thanksgiving — that beautiful time of year when families gather and uncles everywhere feel the need to spout off about Obamacare.

Chances are, folks at the dinner table probably look to you, mostly as a voice of reason, on the subject.

So, this year, be prepared when health care comes up.

Head over to Health Care for the Holidays, and find some helpful tips about how to talk about health care reform — and, most importantly, how your loved ones can get covered.

For millions of Americans — and probably several people in your life — this is the first time that quality, affordable health care is within reach. Whether you have a pre-existing condition that previously kept you from getting insured, or you’re a young person who thinks you’re invincible, getting covered is easy.

That’s why you should take the time to talk to the people you love about what health reform means for them.

Sometimes it’s easier to just let all those rants go without getting involved — believe me, I know. But when people turn to you, it’s good to have the facts.

Before you get together with your family, be sure to stock up on tips for talking about health care:

We've become accustomed to Trump making up ... Read More

An Idea for Student Loans: Get Rid of Them

Here is a three-part plan for something practical the federal government could do to relieve college-loan debt. Step 1: The federal government should stop making college loans itself and cease guaranteeing any such loans.

The Problem with the Mueller Report

So much for collusion. The media conversation has now officially moved on from the obsession of the last two years to obstruction of justice. That’s because the first volume of the voluminous Mueller report, the half devoted to what was supposed to be the underlying crime of a Trump conspiracy with Russia, ... Read More

Some of you will be familiar with a lefty, partisan Democratic organization called MoveOn, formerly MoveOn.Org. It was founded during an investigation into President Bill Clinton’s shenanigans (which were not, Democratic mythology notwithstanding, strictly sexual in nature) and argued that it was time for the ...

Screw York Yankees

You are dead to me. You are a collection of Fredos. The cock has crowed, you pathetic sniveling jerks.
