Hey, A Swell New Idea: Health Care For All

Abby Zimet

Activists are holding a free health clinic
outside Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty's office today to protest budget
cuts to the state's medical programs for the poor that will leave many
without care. They are seeking support for a proposal for government-run
health care for all. What a great idea. Even dirt-poor Rwanda
has it. People pay $2 a year for it. Maybe Congress should try to get us something like that sometime....?


Independent media 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 our critical Winter campaign now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
