Paul Krugman: It’s a moral responsibility.

It’s only a minute and a half long so watch it and feel morally superior to the extreme rightwing nutters who are so against health insurance and health care for every human in the US. Because we are morally superior to those self-centered fuckwits.

Healthcare reform..left of center economists discuss.

Good video from C&L, it’s the ABC news roundtable from Sunday’s This Week, with some interesting folks in attendance:

Krugman and Robert Reich are there. Warms the cockles of my little black heart to see both of them at the table with the nimrod George Will. The topic was of course…healthcare reform!

Krugman talks about the hypocrisy of the Rethugs and specifically Johnny McCain.

George Will asks the inane question, are drug prices too high? He actually says he doesn’t know..idiot on aisle two!

Reich has an OpEd up at Salon that answers his own question, Why in the blue hell does the Gang of Six get to decide the fate of healthcare reform:

It’s not even as if the gang represents America. The three Dems in the gang are from Montana, New Mexico and North Dakota – states that together account for just over 1 percent of Americans. The three Republicans are from Maine, Wyoming and Iowa, which together account for 1.6 percent of the American population.

No shit Mr. Reich..why in the blue hell do these fuckwits get to determine what is done? Tiny states with minimal populations will determine which road we go down, with respect to healthcare reform? Horseshit I say!

Still wading through the Torture Report, a chapter at a time. It’s hard to make sense of it when page after page is completely redacted.
