In Praise of Elizabeth Edwards, Champion of Healthcare Reform

Image by http://www.ksvoboda.com The day Elizabeth Edwards announced that she had breast cancer, my heart sank. Finding a lump in the breast only heightens the suspicion that the prognosis may not be good. In Elizabeth’s case, it wasn’t. We all admired Elizabeth for different reasons. In my case, it was her love for […]

Will Americans Die Because They Are Poor?

“Let them eat cake” was the response uttered by a French aristocrat upon learning that her impoverished citizens did not have bread to eat.

An Open Letter to Pres. Obama and Democractic Senators

Our House of Representatives had […]

There is no silver lining in the healthcare bill that Senator Joseph Lieberman proposes. Special interests have won once again. The late Senator Ted Kennedy is probably rolling over in his grave and I sit in front of my TV in stunned silence. Why are people so fearful of change? And why are Senators sacrificing […]

Health Care Reform: An Unkept Promise

 When I heard the final Senate version of the healthcare reform bill, I had a complete meltdown (please see An Open Letter to President Obama). I had been sucker-punched by people who I thought I could believe in and it was clear that the democratic process had been replaced by corporate agendas.
