What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

What is Obamacare?

Obamacare. It isn't even "insurance reform." It is more accurate to say that Obamacare is the governmental enforcement of the unfair and unjust for-profit driven health care system. What we have with Obamacare is a claim that "free-market" health care is the best health care system in the world so the government is helping us by shoving it down our throats through Obamacare instead of providing real health care reform which would be a National Public Health Care System that uses a means of financing that is publicly administered and which would be publicly delivered just like public education. It took one hell of a fight to win public education in this country and it is going to take an even bigger fight to win real health care reform. obamacare is simply one more way to redistribute the wealth in this country by robbing the poor to fatten the rich. Doctors, health insurance companies and the pharmaceutical industry will profit from Obamacare as labor "leaders," Democratic Party hacks and over-paid media pundits sow confusion and try to mislead people into thinking that Obamacare is some kind of "reform" when it is a thoroughly reactionary ploy to hoodwink and further fleece the American people.
