GreenParty Delaware In 2014, Pennsylvania would save $33 billion over current costs if we implemented the proposed system. This would allow for coverage of all uninsured in the Commonwealth while still netting $17 billion in savings. http://swartzforyork.com/healthcare-reform/

Occupy Fights Foreclosures states that it has been able to help many owners keep their homes, often through direct negotiations with banks. Their tougher cases have led to protests where members break into homes, return them to their owners and barricade the houses off from mortgage servicing companies and law enforcement. One such protest in Van Nuys lasted over two months last year before being shut down. Occupiers are still defending a home in East Los Angeles. That protest is in its sixth month. Another such protest, in Altadena, began last month.May 19, 2013 at 4:45 pm

Even better, cancel all student debt. Just Cancel It!!
Tell Senators Tom Carper and Christopher Coons to stand with Elizabeth Warren
Over 425,000 Americans signed the petition supporting Elizabeth Warren’s first bill -- giving students the same break as the big banks.
This week, Elizabeth Warren thanked her grassroots supporters, saying "as people like you stand with me in this fight, Washington takes notice -- and for that, I can't thank you enough."
Let's make sure Washington takes notice. Can you call Senators Tom Carper and Christopher Coons and ask them to support Warren's bill? Click here for the number and a script.
It's outrageous that big banks get a 0.75% interest rate while student loan interest rates are set to jump from 3.4% to 6.8% this summer.
The big banks have armies of lobbyists and lawyers, but the students have us. Let’s keep up the momentum!
Call your Senators Tom Carper and Christopher Coons now -- ask them to stand with the thousands of Americans who think students deserve the same breaks as the big banks.

Ted's excellent article, in which he asks: "What is it like to live in a country where most people don't trust the safety of their food supply?"
Diana Wise Who the f cares. I hope the FDA is completely cut out of the budget and all those crap factory farms produce bucket loads of e.coli.
I know my food sources. I trust my suppliers. That is food safety.
May 19, 2013 at 4:05 pm
Diana Wise Oh wait, let me clarify, I hate that the government is cutting the budget on education and other socially necessary programs, but the FDA specifically has created laws making it harder for smaller production to thrive and therefore has increased people's dependence on factory farmed and processed foods.

KOCH DEALERS: COMING SOON TO A COMMUNITY NEAR YOU!
“For those that thought they were immune from the oil sands and the consequences of them, we’re now seeing up front and center that we’re not.”
A Black Mound of Canadian Oil Waste Is Rising Over Detroit
"It’s really the dirtiest residue from the dirtiest oil on earth.”
And no one knows quite what to do about it, except Koch Carbon, which owns it.
Koch sells the high-sulfur, high-carbon waste, usually overseas, where it is burned as fuel.
“What is really, really disturbing to me is how some companies treat the city of Detroit as a dumping ground.”
An initial refining process known as coking, which releases the oil from the tarlike bitumen in the oil sands, also leaves the petroleum coke, of which Canada has 79.8 million tons stockpiled. Some is dumped in open-pit oil sands mines and tailing ponds in Alberta. Much is just piled up there.
Detroit’s pile will not be the only one. Canada’s efforts to sell more products derived from oil sands to the United States, which include transporting it through the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, have pulled more coking south to American refineries, creating more waste product here.
BP, the British energy company, is building what it describes as the second-largest coke refinery in Whiting, Ind. When completed, the unit will be able to process about 102,000 barrels of bitumen or other heavy oils a day.
In China, it is used to generate electricity, adding to that country’s air-quality problems. There is also strong demand from India and Latin America for American petroleum coke, where it mainly fuels cement-making kilns.
One of the world’s largest dealers of petroleum coke is the Oxbow Corporation, which sells about 11 million tons of fuel-grade coke a year. It is owned by William I. Koch, a brother of David and Charles.
John Carter Here in Wichita where Koch Industries roosts, we keep hearing how the Kochs have no investment in the XL Pipeline, how totally disinterested they are ... which is why they were the logical choice to contribute to the government finding on the pipeline. Right.
May 18, 2013 at 3:39 pm
GreenParty Delaware The best thing that can be said about the Koch brothers is that they are so blatantly evil. The worst thing that can be said about humanity is that we never seem to deal with blatant evil very well.
May 18, 2013 at 3:46 pm
John Carter I fully expect to find out that it will be a Koch company that ships the oil to foreign ports as well. Used to be Koch Refining and Chemical that did that work but the company names shift around ... got to keep the corporate veil shifting for liability reasons.
May 18, 2013 at 3:48 pm
GreenParty Delaware Marathon is also Koch, right?
May 18, 2013 at 3:48 pm
John Carter Not sure. They have ownership in so many companies I can't keep track.
