Onward to why Democrats in general on a national basis — Mr. Jacoby. Yeah, you may want to lick a napkin to get that taste out. In any case, Jeff Jacoby believes that Americans really don’t like the the elimination of lifetime coverage limits, “free” immunization for children, and the elimination of co-pays for mammograms and other preventive care, going on to complain about “the new law’s requirement that such plans must also cover children who are seriously ill.” I can’t help but notice that Dick Cheney isn’t a jerk toward gays (his daughter is gay) and that Nancy Reagan supports stem cell research (which may soon cure Alzheimer’s disease, from which her husband President Ronald Reagan suffered). I don’t know if Mr. Jacoby has children, but even if it would help him come around to see that sick children ought be cured in America, I still won’t wish that his children suffer.
In today’s Globe news and opinion we are reminded that we want Democrats nominating SJC members, how losing the US Senate will result in a committee chair who thinks a Nobel Prize winning economist doesn’t know enough about the economy to be on the Fed, and if we don’t elect folks like Bill Keating, we might lose Speaker Pelosi who has managed to ensure that the US House is always putting out legislation more progressive than the US Senate.
Let’s win the battle of the blogs, but how about you heading over to Act Blue: BMG to drop some coin, then head over to DevalPatrick.com to sign up to do some work today. Live near Cape and Islands? Get to work for Bill Keating, pronto. Live up near Lynne somewheres near the New Hampshire border? Go north young BMGer to work for the Paul Hodes for Senate campaign. Let’s get to work.
