NEWS:

Doctors' Single-Payer Prescription for Health Care Reform. We convened a nonpartisan group of 39 leading physicians to envision health care reforms that would fix the glaring problems that remain despite the Affordable Care Act. At least 27 million Americans remain uninsured, and for tens of millions with insurance, sky-high copayments and deductibles mean they'd be bankrupted by a serious illness. Doctors and nurses contend with insurers' growing demands for mind-numbing electronic documentation. These trends predated the ACA, but the law accelerated them. The alternative we and our colleagues developed calls for radical change: a single-payer national health program, essentially an expanded and improved version of Medicare for all, much along the lines that Bernie Sanders has advocated.

Left-right divide on Israel widens. A new Pew Research poll provides more evidence that there is a growing partisan divide among Americans related to support for Israel. Overall support levels for Israel remain high, and are four times the level of support for the Palestinians (62% versus 15%). The overall numbers mask the growing split between Republicans and conservatives versus Democrats and liberals on Israel. israelhayom.com

Help John Austin Protect LGBT Children. I know John personally and he is one of the finest people I know. He's served well on the State of Michigan School Board and together with the other members recently sent out voluntary guidelines for schools as they address LBGTQ students and their rights. As you likely some members of our legislature have not looked fondly on this and (in my estimation) very poorly. John will be running for the Board again and is asking for support. Mary Anne

Linda, I'm a loyal Bernie supporter. I'm not sure if I'll vote for Hillary Clinton or not. She will have to earn my vote. She doesn't just get it out of fear of Donald Trump. I watched her town hall answer to a question asked by Rachel Maddow and Hillary basically said "fuck you" to all of Bernie's supporters. Why don't you e-mail Hillary's campaign and demand that Hillary stop cheating democracy and make overtures to Bernie's supporters, instead of asking us to put our ethics and morals aside. I want to vote for someone, not against Donald Trump. Thanks, Bruce Fealk

VOTE BLUE NO MATTER WHO. To the "Bernie or Bust" Americans: -- You're not voting against Hillary. You're voting FOR the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. -- You're not voting against Hillary. You're voting FOR the privatization of Social Security.Yes. It is a reality that sometimes we are faced with a "lesser of two evils" choice. And Secretary Clinton is ABSOLUTELY a lesser evil than Donald Trump. Please! Do not destroy the country to make a point. -- Remember. 100,000 Floridians voted for Ralph Nader in 2000. That's why Gore lost. Not hanging chads. Linda Samelson
