    I also believe he is a harbinger of a coming era, when we begin again to free ourselves from the serfdom of the last fifty years' bowing and scraping before the Briber Class. But even if that's not true, nothing effaces his honor and manifestation of the best America offers the world.
    I've often wondered how Harlan's position could seem so intuitive now and yet so exceptional then. We know the answer, of course, but it still seems remarkable that only one of 9 supremes had his vision at that time. What is truly troubling is the thought of how many still think separate but equal is just fine.

    The Medicaid expansion is only in some places, yes? Here in Maine I believe we voted to implement it (by a significant margin IIRC) but once again our governor doesn't care about our vote and the legislature lacks the will to do anything about it.

    Hey, that sounds familiar...

    Obama doesn't get credit for GM. That was entirely thanks to Clint Eastwood's Super Bowl ad.

    31 states I believe expanded and I have simple solution for the folks in Maine. It may sound crazy, but it just might work! Ready for it?

    That's an epic failure as well. We're still in Afghanistan. We learned nothing from history. EVER.

    Not many of them in Maine unfortunately. Some of them have land but donít pay any income tax to the state.

    you will, if you keep voting Republican.

    oh, that's right, you don't vote. don't bother being part of the solution. just keep beeching about the problem.

    and oh yeah, if you keep voting Republican, there won't be a Medicare or Medicaid to pay for, so I guess you win.

    I'm so sick of this question. We have the money, it's a question of how we spend it. Our priorities have been messed up for decades.

    We need a better system. Single payer and everyone pays whatever percentage of their income necessary to fund it. Solutions like expanding Medicare/Medicaid arenít going to fix anything.
