CUNY adjuncts still don't know what will happen with their Health Insurance as of April 30. Probably nothing.
So much for Whatever.
(Sorry, I posted this prematurely. I was trying to write a whole history of this problem but got overwhelmed. Will update when I can, and I hope I am proved wrong in my prognostications.) Read below the fold...

It's been too long since I posted an update on my own personal health insurance parasite, Wellpoint. But they have been busy little bees! Presented for your consideration: how Wellpoint will make gobs of cash out of Medicaid thanks to the "ACA"! (Yes, I'm quoting the entire story here. Every line is a gem!)

Not to toot my own horn, but I've been accepted to medical school for next August. :)
Anywho, I'd like to make a regular feature out of my experience as a student, at least to the extent that any of it relates to politics. More to come on that later.
For now, a quick anecdote about Occupy NOLA and a nearby homeless clinic that I volunteer at. Read below the fold...

Salon.com has a piece up urging Democrats to dump Obama and go with a candidate who will restore their party to its New Deal era politics. According to the column by Matt Stoller, there are a number of reasons why they should, including: Read below the fold...
