Just another one of millions who likes to get the "real news". I'm a single Mom; been on disability for a little over two years for PTSD and trying to keep from drowning in the corporate takeover of our country, our culture, our livelihoods; just to mention a scant few of the things that have been prioritized by our world in politics, sports, govenment - the whole she-bang. Trying to re-enter the workforce at 48 years of age and have my work cut out for me (all pun intended) with the stigma of mental illness (to explain TRUTHFULLY my lapse in employment since early 2007).

If they can’t be prosecuted, then an alternate solution could be to re-set their victim’s credit scores so EVERYBODY can start from square one. And campaign finance reform is WAY, long, over-due!

The Walker Administration squandered the surplus (I read a figure of 120 million) by making that surplus money into tax cuts for the corporate interests that got him into office. So yes, AND no. It started balanced and now is unbalanced since this is purely ... More »

It neglected to say anything about the healthcare debacle which is a big piece of the puzzle with the numbers of the uninsured/underinsured in our country. Lots of us make too much on either unemployment/ disability benefits and yet we cannot afford the exhorbitant cost of healthcare premiums once we're no longer working.

I meant to put the paragraph about quality journalism here. Sorry.

The content really sheds light upon just how big of a colossal mess this healthcare business really is.

Just as Rep. Anthony Wiener (D-NY) said on the MSNBC morning programs just today; and I'm paraphrasing, but the point of his message was basically that there is no healthcare reform without the public option; that there will be no true healthcare reform without it, as having the healthcare insurance industry regulate themselves is pretty much the same thing as promoting an arsonist to the position of fire cheif.
