Forum Post: About National Health Care - you will want to watch and share this video.

Got a minute? Then click here.

Al was on Rachel Maddow’s show the other night, talking about his provision in health care reform that’s already saving Americans billions of dollars.

Oh, and Will Ferrell’s in the video, too -- you’ll see when you watch it.

It’s an important video because it highlights one of the many benefits of Obamacare that a lot of people don’t know about.

But it’s also important because it highlights the reason why my job rocks -- it’s Al at his best.

Click here to watch the video -- and then take action to help Al keep making progress (we’re almost at our $100,000 July goal with just 3 days to go!).

If we work hard to elect leaders like Al, we really can make a difference. We can bring down the cost of health care. We can hold insurance companies accountable. We can keep racking up more great accomplishments like the one Al talks about in the video.

So watch this clip, share it with your friends, and make sure to take action to help Al keep fighting for us!

Thanks,

Matt

Matt Burgess Campaign Manager TeamFranken

P.S.: We only have 3 days left until we hit our July fundraising deadline -- and we could really use YOUR help to hit our $100,000 goal. Please click here to take action today!

Universal Healthcare is a no brainer. Remove it from the control of employers and place everyone in one big plan, sick and ill, young and old and provide basic coverage. If you want and can afford something fancier, go for it, but everyone gets covered for the basics.

Here is some good news: Health plan costs for New Yorkers set to fall 50%.

That's exactly what we have in Australia.

1.25% of income over the tax threshold, and everyone pays the same.

If you want extras, you can buy what you like on the private market.

We can have universal healthcare here in the U.S. too! Maybe it would raise our life expectancy which is only 33rd in the world! Hmmm, you guys are #4.

Exactly. It's really not as big a deal as they'd like to make us think. In fact, the more universal the care, the cheaper the care. A little secret they don't want to get out because it will cut into their profits.

People can do what the government is unwilling to do by establishing mutual health insurance and passing municipal initiatives for public hospitals or even establishing cooperative hospitals like Seattle's Group Health Cooperative http://www.ghc.org/

Absolutely. We must start doing for ourselves what our failed government will not do for us.

[-] -1 points by DKAtoday (27542) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Absolutely 100% CORRECT. A system - non-profit system - where any money was actually used for health care - well the lions share of the money. Just think what a shot in the arm that would be for the general economy - by putting money back into peoples pockets to be spent in their communities.

[-] 3 points by beautifulworld (19202) 1 year ago

There should be no profit, zero, in health care. Great point, DKA.

There should be no profit for providing what people have no choice in using, like healthcare, utilities, water. There should also be no profit in any business that is hired by the government, since we do not have any real choice in that either. War would stop pretty damn quick if all the munitions makers received were high salaries. Competition would have to be based on -- wait for it -- a better product.

[-] -3 points by DKAtoday (27542) from Coon Rapids, MN 12 months ago

Yep - government seems to think ( the actual people making government spread it's legs - they don't really think - as they benefit - privately ) that it is necessary to pay billions over cost ( could this have anything to do with conflict of interest and lining their own pockets because they have investments there? ). Government should be able to pay - say 1% over cost - and the business would still make money - ON VOLUME.

Government does not practice good business - as members of government figure it would hurt getting supplemental income from their positions. Anyway it's not like it is their money being SPENT - Right?

The GOP fucked up the original that was brought forward ( one that could have been better - yes ) - then to get anything passed towards effecting a national Health Care Plan - their BS fucking around had to be accepted.

It is still a major thing to get a start towards a national health care program on the books. We can always continue fight to improve it.

Expanding Social Security is incredibly popular -- which comes as no surprise to the more than 110,562 DFA members who have signed on to our campaign in the past week! But many in Washington continue to ignore this basic reality and refuse to talk about expanding Social Security. So we're going to make sure they get the message loud and clear.

On Saturday, Senators Harkin and Begich kicked things off appearing on MSNBC to promote their plan to expand Social Security. They put our campaign to improve the lives of millions of Americans in front of a national audience because, like you, they understand the importance Social Security plays in the lives of countless Americans.

This week, we are conducting polling in key states to reveal the depth of public support for expanding and strengthening Social Security. If politicians in Washington won't act on their own, we'll take our case directly to the people to create public pressure.

Can you chip in $15 to help us put our poll in the field, and to put pressure on our elected officials to act now to expand Social Security?

For years, Social Security has been under attack by right-wing interests bent on undermining our social safety net time and again. Together, we've drawn a line in the sand and are changing the story by fighting to strengthen and expand Social Security.

Now we need to demonstrate how broad the public support is for our campaign, so that our elected officials can't hide from the truth, and so that they know we'll have their backs in this fight if they do the right thing.

Can you chip in $15 to fund our poll and help us demonstrate how strong public support is for expanding Social Security?

Thanks for all you do,

Jim

While not wanting to join in on this lively debate at this time, i just wanted to say that I have a mess of those Occucards including the Duopoly one, and many were circulated in Alaska when I was there

When i asked one of their people who was visitng NY if they minded if I reproduced them (which I already had done), she laughed crazily... and joked about copyright infringement.. or something!

The best one that I enlarged... so that the front and back took up the whole side of a page (81/2 x 11) was the Monsanto Occucard....picture on the top, text underneath...and it is in COLOR too...costing me i think about $1.00 each! I hung those up on bulletin boards in three different coffee shops in Anchorage and in the the Matanuska valley which is Alaska's farming area

It's quite attractive when it is enlarged http://www.occucards.com/cards/monsanto/

I also enlarged the Student Debt (black & white) one too, and just hung up or left Wells Fargo & Duopoly cards laying around or inserted them into sale papers

"Requiring accounts to have 1000 pts minimum before they are allowed to post or vote would be a GR8 start in limiting your shill/bot/sock BS."

Frustration is not a reason to start limiting participation in the voting process. It may seem worth it, but it creates the very thing - granted on a smaller scale- that we are fighting.

How many times have you been banned????

How many puppets have you used?

Are you part of the bot network?

You seem to have no plan to stop them.

And here we go again. You and yours often say why have votes at all? You say they are meaningless.

But now there comes a suggestion - a suggestion that would limit shill/bot/sock activity - and - YOU SCREAM = FOUL. Why is that?

I mean the 1000 point rule would not stop you from being able to make comments - would not stop you from being heard - would not stop people from agreeing or disagreeing with you.

Would not stop you from earning the right to vote or Post.

What it would do is radically reduce the BS shill/sock/bot activity. Make accounts make good contributions for a short period of time - make accounts be real for a while - prior to letting those accounts do what ever they please ( shitting on the forum ) uncontested without the need for them to EVER make a comment.

Me Thinkest thou dost protest to much.

Shove it with your pro Dem garbage. Didnt think you'd agree with him on that.

You never touch that topic. Why is that?

Thats all you people have done is sold out the nation and left us with the leftovers.

have you looked at al's voting record on progressive issues??? it fucking sucks. don't be a fool both parties are owned lock, stock, and barrel.

Regardless of what you may think of Al - I like the idea of a national health care program - the one that got through the corpoRATist f'n around was worse than the original that was proposed and the original could/should have been better - BUT - just to get it started is phenomenal - we can improve upon it - as we find ourselves - and quit bitching from the sideline.
