Great Leaders Admit When They’re Wrong

One of the greatest strengths of a good leader is the ability to admit when he, or she, is wrong. Donald Trump is incapable of doing so. And the corresponding incapability of Republicans in Congress to act in their elected roll as ‘check and balance’ tells us that it’s time …

Men Decide Women’s Healthcare

This should NEVER happen! A group of men making decisions about women’s health care? And, we aren’t even talking about politically charged stuff…or are we? These men are deciding whether to include mammograms and maternity care in the Republican “unhealthcare” bill. Truly, there isn’t a woman in the room. What …

Republican Healthcare Fiasco

The Republican’s healthcare replacement is a fiasco for New Mexicans. Statistics show that if you are in the top 1% you will get back a huge refund. But, if you’re a regular person your insurance premium is going to rise in a huge way – an average of $2,521! But …

Donald Trump Has Forgotten About Older Voters

Donald Trump has forgotten about his older voters. This health bill is nothing more than an age tax for older adults. AARP tells us: “Older Americans want affordable health care, including less-expensive prescription drugs and continued protections for the most vulnerable,” said AARP Executive Vice President Nancy LeaMond. “When Americans …

Trump Warns House Republicans

Yet again Donald Trump has warned House Republicans that they MUST repeal the ACA or they will lose their seats to the extreme right. I guess, for him, we don’t exist. Because, if House Republicans vote out the ACA they are still going to lose their seats…to US! Get MAD …

1.8 Million Jobs Lost Over Next 5 Years

A new analysis by Christian E. Weller and Gregg Gelzinis of the Center for American Progress warns that 1.8 million jobs over the next 5 years will be lost as a direct result of a Republican enforced repeal of the Affordable Care Act. That’s in addition to the 24 million …

The Problem with a Preemptive Strike

The problem with a preemptive strike is that we become the aggressor. Our allies are not required to support us in the event that we are deemed the antagonist. Most of our Republican Congressmen and Senators have thus far chosen to follow our Alt-Right President no matter how outlandish his …

Climate Change is Real

Sadly, our Republican members of Congress don’t seem to believe in Science. Nor do they believe the evidence that keeps piling up about the reality of human-caused climate change. A New York Times story discusses the tragedy of warming oceans on Australia’s Great Reef, in which huge amounts of coral …
