Tell Congress – Throw the Money Changers Out of the Temple

TV MOYERS NOWBill Moyers’ PBS show featured Wendell Potter, the insurance executive whose conscience bothered him so much he is now telling the truth about the insurance industry’s rape of American health care.  Nothing Mr. Potter says is news, but he tells a story that Congress needs to hear again and again: insurance companies take our money just to deny us our health care, and they pay off Washington insiders to keep them in business.


Bill Moyers’ essay from that show exposes the shameless way that your Senators and Representatives have conducted your business behind closed doors, doing the bidding of lobbyists for powerful industries.  Remind your legislators that you are watching and that some day you and your neighboring voters will have had a bellyful of Washington insiders who inhabit the temple infested by the moneychangers.  Tell them the day of reckoning is coming.  Tell them that one day soon, the moneychangers and their sycophantic dependents will be driven from the temple.  Tell them: Congressman, Senator,  this means YOU.

In Remembrance of Nataline Sarkisyan- Don’t Forget !

nataline-b-blogPlease read carefully the below quote from Michael Moore written on December 22nd, 2007 regarding the death of Nataline Sarkisyan:

“If their decision was one of incompetence, then manslaughter charges should be filed. If it was a premeditated decision — where CIGNA knew in advance that Nataline would most likely die — then their corporate officers should be arrested and the full extent of the law brought to bear upon them.”
 (whole story

Tragically, denial of coverage is an everyday occurrence, often ending with the same net result.  Unless you have lived this nightmare, the average person finds it hard to believe!  For profit health insurance companies are practicing medicine without license and are responsible for untold tragedy and death every day, 365 days a year.  I ask you to get involved! 

Go to,, and learn about HR676 a single payer system that will put an end to this nightmare.  Then write, call or scream at your elected officials to do something…  HR676 has 94 congressional co-sponsors now. More are needed and your help is essential to bring an end to this!   Please Help!
