Let’s Visualize Obamacare…with Legos ! And some useful stuff too :)

Teaching tools for Dummies, like me!

You can also use AARP’s Glossary about what’s going to happen to who and how. Believe me, no matter what your politics, trust these wise and understanding folks….oh, and since I found out the average age of a U.S. Senator is 112 now, do forward this information to them 🙂

Universal health insurance: The goal of ensuring that every American has access to health coverage, regardless of the specific system used to achieve it.

Group health insurance: The traditional system in which employers or unions offer subsidized private insurance to employees or members and their dependents at discounted group rates.

Individual health insurance: Private policies purchased by individuals or families who do not have access to group insurance. Applicants may be denied coverage or have to pay more because of age, gender or preexisting medical conditions.

Public health insurance: These include Medicare (for older or disabled people), Medicaid (for the poor), SCHIP (for children), the Veterans Affairs health system and some state programs. Care is subsidized by federal or state governments or both.

Single payer: A centralized system used by several Western nations in which the government pays for every resident’s health care as a basic social service, funded out of taxes.

Socialized medicine: A single-payer system in which the government owns and runs health care facilities and pays salaries to doctors. (In the U.S., only the VA health care program would fit into this category.)

You can also see more discussion about health care reform at these two great AARP articles:

Health Care for All
Is an affordable, bipartisan bill possible?

Six Critical Health Care Reform Issues
What’s being said and who’s saying it in the debate on available, affordable, health care coverage

Update: Nevermind :p

Cruising the Bloggy Highway – Billy Elliot/Sportobama Edition – 06.08.09

Great show last night, I’m a Broadway junkie …. Congratulations to all the nominees and winners!

But not as AWESOME as O’this, riiiiiight 🙂

Alegre from the Corner does notice President Smartypants doesn’t always make the right choices, especially his pick for a post at HHS. Not only is the lady pro-life, she’s anti-shudder-contraception and thinks that using contraception is IMMORAL. WTG Pro-Choice Prez !

AOL’s Black Voices community defends the rights of Black Princesses and little girls everywhere to have positive role models no matter what their As Seen On TV Bare Minerals skin tone is. Great message and an even greater peek at the new movie here.

Pigs are flying over at The Daily Beast ! Matthew Yglesias says the President is “All Talk and No Action”

…..AND Christopher Buckley says “Joe Scarborough can save the GOP” ! I agree, I’ve like Joe even during my knee-jerk liberal daze.

It’s Official, Cindy Sheehan HATES everybody.

Ed Morrissey of Hot Air reminds us to pay very close attention to the NEW Obamacare scam proposal. Ya better….the national healthcare insurance industry is way too supportive.

Oh, and back in the Obama’s U.S. homeland, Chicago, the Sun-Times reports an investigation possibly into FLOTUS’s not so nice position…when she was a successful professional….throwing poor people out of her upscale hospital. They report….you decide 🙂

And a warm-fuzzy-shout-out-back-atcha Hillary’s Village for letting me hijack your community to live blog the Tony Awards last night, and the media alert reference to my bloggy. All is good in my world !
