Defending the Indefensible

Defending the Indefensible

Abby Zimet

The GOP's feverishly working to get rid of government-sponsored health
insurance - except for themselves. Only eight of them have opted out out of a generous federal employees plan subsidized by us. As
the tawdry repeal debate plays out this week, watch a number of
congressman babble and scramble to get away from ThinkProgress asking why they're still happily taking what they don't want us to have. Or complain here.


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.
