  • Does Hillary get it?

    Does Hillary Clinton understand that the biggest divide in American politics is no longer between the right and the left, but between the anti-establishment and the establishment?

  • Why a single-payer healthcare system is inevitable

    The choice is between a hugely expensive for-profit oligopoly or a government-run single payer system. We’re going to have to choose eventually.

  • Aetna shows why we need a single-payer system

    The alternative to a single-payer health insurance system is a hugely-expensive for-profit oligopoly with the market power to charge high prices even to healthy people – and to charge sick people (or those likely to be sick) an arm and a leg.

    Bernie Sanders’s campaign is now officially over, but the movement he inspired is still just beginning.
