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.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
