Cheers and Jeers
Because I can do it better than Daily Kos.
Cheers: Congressmen Alan Grayson (FL-8) and Dennis Kucinich (OH-10) for spearheading the snowballing HR 4789 that would expand Medicare coverage to all under 65 who want it.
Jeers: Former President Bill Clinton, he of NAFTA infamy, in saying that Haiti can raise itself from poverty through its "cheap labor."
Cheers: Congress for removing the Barr amendment that until last week prohibited Washington, DC residents from obtaining medical marijuana.
Jeers: Right wing Wal-Mart for firing a terminally ill man, 2008's Associate of the Year, using legal medical marijuana for failing a routine drug screening test.
Cheers: Health Care for America Now for skewering health insurers' claims that they're jacking up premiums to keep up with the rising cost of health care.
Jeers: Dan Riehl for suggesting that we euthanize Sen. Harry Reid's wife after suffering a car accident.
Cheers: To President Barack Obama for wanting to overhaul No Child Left Behind.
Jeers: To the Texas School Board for bringing the Middle Ages back into our middle schools.
