      Children have CHIPs or some local and Fed Coverage. MI has righties running the Sate now. I hope that some help gets to this family, especially, now that their story has made the news. In US, this should Never be happening. Health Care is a right.

    Tragedy compounded by extraordinary naivete (and I’m being as empathetic & charitable to him as I can) ….

    Highly unlikely that my wife and I will ever give a single $ to DNC, DSCC, DCCC ever again. We will fund candidates directly and OFA (for as long as President Obama leads it).

    From time to time I check Daily Kos just to see what they are focused on.
    DK never made much sense to me so I never even registered there, much less commented.

    Today, there is nothing on DK about the Iran deal. In my view this deal is a crucial issue for our country. War, peace that kind of stuff.

    In DK it is Bernie diaries and Hillary diaries which both seem to come from universes other than our own.
    Not a glimmer of how big the Trump threat is to all democrats.
    Or how Joe Biden might possibly give us our biggest chance for victory.

    Alternate universe. More and better democrats is their banner.
    Bernie isn’t a democrat and Markos spent most of his life as a Repub and reports for The Hill. Please.

    If you haven’t already (one segment posted in the previous thread) please read and support @MaksymKhylko’s message to ‘the West.’ It is practicable and absolutely necessary ….

    BTW, if you haven’t listened to PBO’s NOLA speech, please do so soon. He cuts no one any slack.

      Here’s a copyright-respecting chunk of Peter’s OP-ED noted in tweets, above ….

      “The Latest Failure of the American Jewish Establishment
      How the American Jewish leadership’s battle against the Iran deal is further alienating young Jews.


      Young American Jews are also more thoroughly American. When the pollster Frank Luntz surveyed younger American Jewish opinion about Israel in 2003, his number one lesson was that “most of our respondents … reserve the right to question the Israeli position.” His lesson number two was that “young Jews tend to view themselves as Americans first and Jewish second.” For top American Jewish leaders, U.S. President Barack Obama’s statement that members of Congress should judge the Iran deal based on whether its serves “the national interests of the United States,” smacked of anti-Semitism. For many younger American Jews, it’s self-evident.

      Finally, many young American Jews resent the way the organized American Jewish community limits free discussion about Israel. Two years ago, Jewish college students created “Open Hillel” to challenge the restrictions Hillel imposes on which speakers Jewish groups can bring to campus. But in their fight against the Iran deal, American Jewish organizations have exhibited the same secretive, anti-democratic tendencies that young American Jews find so alienating. In Los Angeles, according to the Jewish Journal, a handful of members of the executive committee determined that the Federation would oppose the Iran deal “without consulting the larger 45-person Federation board or, of course, the community at large.”

      In declaring its opposition to the agreement, The Jewish Federation of Greater Miami declared that “this issue must remain above politics and reflect our collective determination to ensure moral clarity and absolute resolve in dealing with one of the world’s most dangerous regimes.” In other words, open debate inside the Jewish community about the Iran deal constitutes “politics,” which is a bad thing.

      Just because young American Jews believe something, of course, doesn’t make it right. If American Jewish leaders sincerely oppose the Iran agreement, one can’t fault them for doing what they believe is right. But many of those same leaders have spent the last few years agonizing over the generational divide in American Jewish life. It’s almost certain now that the struggle those leaders have waged against the Iran deal will fail. But in their ongoing efforts to alienate their own children and grandchildren from the institutions they’ve built, they will have succeeded all too well.”

    Dated Jan. 2008 and still very, very appropriate as a reaction to the Republican slate!
