Is Obamacare good because the right-wing opposes it?

We are now hearing Obama’s apologists saying because right-wing politicians like Rand Paul and Mitt Romney oppose Obamacare that Obamacare and the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling upholding it must be good. Opposition from Rand Paul, Romney and the Republicans aside, this legislation is patently unconstitutional because it forces and coerces

Supreme Court rules in favor of the “Health Insurance and Pharmaceutical Industry Bailout and Profit Maximization Act of 2010.”

Why would any working class person be rejoicing about the U.S. Supreme Court decision on Obamacare or “The Health Insurance and Pharmaceutical Industry Bailout and Profit Maximization Act of 2010?” No matter what this “Health”Act is called it is a thoroughly reactionary piece of legislation but typical Obama; just like

There is no end to the litany of excuses coming from the saboteurs of the Wisconsin recall.

According to the Democrats and their foundation-funded front groups like this all the blame for the defeat lies with the Republicans: http://www.progressivesforobama.net/?p=251 Coincidentally (?) we have the same thing coming from Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison who Co-chairs the Congressional Progressive Caucus: http://ellison.house.gov/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=876:after-wisconsin-a-movement-to-get-money-out-of-politics-&catid=84:op-eds&Itemid=129 What a bunch of hypocrites making the claim

Working class families are under attack by both Democrats and Republicans

In view of the Democratic Party and Obama betraying working class families in Wisconsin and Republican Governor Scott Walker continuing his attacks on the working class with attacks on the livelihoods of working people continuing across the country from both Democrats and Republicans— is it time to consider the General

“The Little Blue Book” has arrived.

What this struggle in Wisconsin has demonstrated is workers in the streets need a political voice articulating their positions and demands. George Lakoff and Elisabeth Wehling have written a new book conveniently titled, “The Little Blue Book,” which they claim explains the defeat in Wisconsin. Lakoff and Wehling plug their

Money did not get Scott Walker re-elected; betrayal by the Democrats did

I think all this constant dwelling on big money being responsible for this loss is a cop-out. We are living in a society dominated by tremendous wealth. Wealth is going to dominate politics until people understand that they are more powerful than all this wealth combined— if they get organized.

Obama— “I will put on my marching shoes”— is a no show in Wisconsin

Barack Obama is a no show in Wisconsin: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/04/us/politics/walker-recall-battle-may-hurt-obama.html?_r=1&hp “He’s got a very big job as president,” said former Gov. Jim Doyle, a Democrat and one of Mr. Obama’s earliest supporters four years ago. “As important as the recall is, in the big picture, it’s much more important to get

Beware: Obama and the Democrats are Wall Street wolves in sheep’s clothing

No matter where we look nor no matter what issue; from Wisconsin to the United States Congress and the White House what we see are Democrats pretending to be friends of working people but who at every single opportunity undermine the livelihoods of working people. Instead of getting peace from

“That slimy bastard never worked a day in his life.”

At a memorial meeting intended to remember the working class activists who gave their lives fighting for union recognition against Republic Steel, this is one account of what was said: On Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, USW President Leo Gerard was equally blunt. “That slimy bastard never worked a day
