Although it is rarely hyped, CHIP continues to have strong bipartisan support at the federal and state levels, including strong support from our nation's governors, as it quietly goes about the business of efficiently providing health coverage to over 8 million children in low-income working families across the country.
As a nurse when you hit the wall mentally and physically of what you can do you aren't allowed to take the phone off the hook. In life and death situations you can't even walk away for a second to collect yourself. So when you reach the end of your rope you just magically find some more slack.
Why all the uproar about drug prices? People feel differently about drugs, and many other health care products than they do about other things that get bought and sold. And it's precisely this attitude that has made many governmental health care programs so complicated.
Democrats do not seem up to the task of taking on this new breed of crazy. With the freak show called the GOP primary season in full swing, the time has come to offer up a political counterbalance to dangerous right wing extremism -- beyond what traditional Democrats can muster.
