Health care is a basic human right, not a privilege. For some reason, we’ve allowed ourselves as Americans to be fooled into accepting that one must be blessed with “means” to actuate appropriate health care. As a nation we have failed to realize that our health care system is a barometer of our society’s value for human life.

Caucus Much?

Today is the day, in Minnesota, where those in the DFL can go to their caucus and do their part (in our two-party system) to ensure that their voice is heard. Go here if you aren’t sure where to go tonight!

I am doing my part to ensure that at least a small portion of low-income DFLers attend this event by inviting friends and neighbors, and even being the “ride” to the event.

What do I believe the platform should be for DFLers across Minnesota?

I’ve made it fairly clear here my stance on single payer universal health coverage, but I also want to have a hand in encouraging low-income and middle-income Americans to find their voice in politics, be it in regards to taxes, rebates, health care, public transit, employment, housing….All those things that are important to citizens, but are just a little different if you aren’t making median income and you don’t own a home (or you do own a home but can’t figure how you are managing to pay for it…)

Every voice is important.

Yes you are so right, everyones voice is important, something we sometimes forget.
