Swampcare: The Great Betrayal for 03/10/2017

Since 2010, Republicans have repeatedly promised to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which is now universally referred to as Obamacare. Last week, Republicans finally unveiled their alternative to Obamacare, and it is best described as swampcare. Far from repealing Obamacare or replacing Obamacare, it only tweaks the Affordable Care Act and does nothing to drain the swamp.

Obamacare has never been popular. It has never polled above 50 percent. Democrats have invented a host of reasons why it polls so terribly, including that people just do not realize Obamacare is the Affordable Care Act. It is simply not popular. More people were hurt by Obamacare than helped. It created a massive new and costly entitlement and expanded the least efficient, least effective existing entitlement program — Medicaid.

Twenty-First Century Slavery for 01/27/2017

“It is my property.” “It is not human.” “It is not even three-fifths of a person.” “It is not a person.” “I can do with my property whatever I want.” “You have no legal right to control my property.” “Science says it is not an intelligent being.” “It cannot survive on its own. It is mine to do with as I please.” “It cannot feel anything.”

It is a person — a he or a she. They are living, breathing human beings capable of great intelligence. But slave owners refused to give up their slaves and came up with cruel justifications for slavery and terrible defenses for their brutality. When it became abundantly apparent that the Africans kidnapped and sold into slavery were just like their owners, their owners refused to believe it. They concocted pseudo-science to show the slave was inferior in every way. They bought and sold these human beings as if they were property.
