I care about Obamacare

I’d do a video about this, but I have a cold, dirty hair, no make up, pasty.   I look like a neighbor of Honey Boo-Boo’s. Rex and I are home sick today.  Nothing that we need a doctor for, but glad to know if we need one we can get one. Our family pays for it.  A lot.  Least we have it.

I would prefer a more European model– wait- rest of the entire world model– of cradle to grave coverage.  Would taxes go up, probably, but 1) the US middle class is STUCK.  Upward mobility is not what it use to be and people need to be covered. 2) let’s change resources from the military industrial complex.  I know, I’m a big hippie with big dreams. I also want people I don’t even know to have coverage.

But, I also hope for a day when bakeries in the US don’t put sugar sauce on everything and emphasize baked goods with cheese like they do in Europe. Hmm, cheese.

My finger is hovering over the keyboard to sign up because it will probably save us a few hundred a month.  Not a lot, but something.

I do not understand the Ted Cruz’s of this USA.  How are people suppose to get care?  Do they not know anyone who was ever denied coverage?  Its it just survival of the fittest for them?  I don’t get it.

Let’s join the rest of the world and give our citizens at least basic healthcare coverage. Let’s join the 20th century, a century late.

Oh, and let’s join the majority of the world and stop routinely circumcising baby boys.  But, that’s another post..

Cough, cough.

News of the day on Mid Morning with Cool Mom and Rex

I don’t have to be on “The View” or “The Talk” to get into hot topics.     I do have the cutest sidekick in the biz who has great comic timing.  Rex and I shot this before I had my breakfast.  We had a lot to discuss.    I like to do a bit more old school talk show.  Mike Douglas, Dick Cavett, Merv Griffin.  They didn’t just have actors on but occasionally had on people with real thoughts and ideas.

I just wish I had a key light.
