Wall Street’s Bailout Hustle

There is a great article by Matt Taibbi in Rolling Stone Magazine, the February Issue, about the economic meltdown and bank abuses which continue under the bail out. Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck are on the cover. The article is very illuminating. I encourage everyone to check it out.

Funny or Die’s Presidential Reunion

Funny or Die has made a great video highlighting the need for increased regulation to protect people from abuse by lenders. We all hopefully know that the bailout was needed because of reckless and unethical practices by financial institutions going unchecked. Check out the video and push for increased regulation.

Public Option

My friends at MoveOn.org just created this ad in support of the public option as a component of healthcare reform. I strongly agree that the public option is the best way to create competition with private insurers and lower costs. I watched the healthcare discussion with Obama and congress today and the Republicans did not make a very good case for their opposition to reform. I think healthcare is a civil right and a human right. Check out the video.
