Thursday's Must-Read

The discussion of health care reform, particularly in coverage by the news media, all too often perpetuates the idea that a public health care option is “controversial” amongst the American populace. The Right and those in the insurance industry have been more than willing to sell this line, and Democrats have too easily capitulated this point.

So why then are we continually told to prepare for a street fight over health care? And whose interests are driving this disinformation?

Let Bob Cesca over at Huffington Post answer these questions and more!

And if you're feeling inspired, help Sen. Bernie Sanders make single-payer a reality because health care is a right, not a privilege.
