Cloudy Health Care

Abby Zimet

With the health care debate winding down to its oh-so-sorry end, pollster Nate Silver ran its numbers through one of those high-tech "word-cloud" wonders to see how it all translates. Surprise! People who want health reform focus on "people," "need," "insurance" and "everyone." Those who oppose it focus on "government," "cost," "people" and "pay," which, because there are so many of them, we now will, lots.   

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
