Take health care into your own hands

The Affordable Care Act was passed by Congress and then signed into law by the President on March 23, 2010.
On June 28, 2012 the Supreme Court rendered a final decision to uphold the health care law.
Read the Law  ~ The Affordable Care Act, Section by Section
http://www.healthcare.gov/law/full/index.html

A central goal of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is to significantly reduce the number of uninsured by providing a
continuum of affordable coverage options through Medicaid and new Health Insurance Exchanges.
Following the June 2012 Supreme Court decision, states face a decision about whether to adopt the Medicaid
expansion. These decisions will have enormous consequences for health coverage for the low-income population.

Filling the need for trusted information on health issues…the Kaiser Family Foundation

A leader in health policy analysis, health journalism and communication, the Kaiser Family Foundation is dedicated
to filling the need for trusted, independent information on the major health issues facing our nation and its people.

Kaiser is a non-profit, private operating foundation focusing on the major health care issues facing the U.S., as
well as the U.S. role in global health policy.  Unlike grant-making foundations, Kaiser develops and runs its own
research, journalism and communications programs, sometimes in partnership with other non-profit research
organizations or major media companies. We serve as a non-partisan source of facts, information, analysis and
journalism for policymakers, the media, the health care community, and the public. Our product is information,
always provided free of charge — from the most sophisticated policy research, to basic facts and numbers, to in
depth health policy news coverage provided by our news service, KHN, to information young people can use to
improve their health or elderly people can use to understand their Medicare benefits.

The Kaiser Family Foundation is not associated with Kaiser Permanente or Kaiser Industries.

women's right to vote
Remember, it was not until 1920 that women were granted the right to go to the polls and vote.
We need to get out and vote and use this right that was fought so hard for by these very courageous women.
Whether you vote democratic, republican or independent party - remember to vote.

"Why Women Should Vote"  History presented by SNOPES  collected from the Internet August 2008

Iron Jawed Angels
Katja von Garnier
The fight for women's voting rights has rarely been given as dramatic a treatment as in Iron Jawed Angels. Hilary Swank (Boys Don't Cry) and Frances O'Connor (Mansfield Park) star
as second-wave suffragettes Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, who led the final fight for the 19th Amendment to the Constitution. Though the movie sometimes tries too hard to avoid the
stigma of a period piece (the soundtrack features electric guitars, Swank has a steamy moment in a bathtub, and the editing is jagged and flashy), the mounting energy of the fight--and
the increasingly nasty opposition--gains real momentum when a wartime picket line leads to Paul, Burns, and their sisters-in-arms being arrested on trumped-up charges and
imprisoned. The actors--including Julia Ormond (Smilla's Sense of Snow), Angelica Huston (Prizzi's Honor, The Grifters), and Brooke Smith (Vanya on 42nd Street)--give fervent,
determined performances. --Bret Fetzer

.St. Louis Public Radio, Nine Network of Public Media and the St. Louis Beacon have combined their reporting and production power under a
single umbrella to cover the campaign on radio, on television and online.  They are calling the joint venture Beyond November and have created a
website BeyondNovember.org and a twitter hashtag: #BeyondNov.  It is believed to be the first time that three public media organizations in one
town have created a joint platform to focus coverage on a particular topic.

Beyond November’s guide is unique. Unlike some guides which ask generic questions like: “Why are you running for office,”
the Beyond November guide has questions pertinent to the issues of particular concern in various districts.
“We do not ask one size fits all questions,” Weiss said.
The guide allows voters to compare candidates side by side and to look at all measures on their particular ballots.
It will also provide information about donors and voting records.
Those interested in other races beyond what is on their ballots can find them in the guide as well.

The collaboration has been seeded with a grant from the St. Louis-based Deer Creek Foundation.

The Weekend Voting Act would allow for national polls to be open from 10 a.m. (Eastern Time) Saturday to 6 p.m. (ET) Sunday
in the 48 contiguous states. Election officials would be permitted to close polls during the overnight hours if they determine it
would be inefficient to keep them open. Reps.
Israel, Slaughter, Larson, Clyburn and Dingell are the original cosponsors of the
legislation.
