Health and Sickness, Truly

Abby Zimet

Marking the six-month anniversary of health care reform, the White House has launched a new website to
explain what it does (and doesn't) do. Ditto for a nice live cartoon
from the Kaiser Family Foundation. At the same time, several big,
ever-noble insurance companies have announced
they will no longer cover children because the new law won't let them
turn away sick ones - ie: they can no longer deny coverage to kids with
"pre-existing conditions." Remarkably, they have now topped even
themselves in the slime-o-meter.



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
