You're right Richard we need the Progressives to keep the gates of all political and cultural affairs. Then that nasty Alec would be thwarted and all will be well in the land. I've an idea. Lets let Kathleen Sebelius run our nations health care system.

Sam Brownback answers to ALEC …. his bottom line. The United States of ALEC. http://www.democracynow.org/2012/9/27/the_united_states_of_alec_bill

ALEC Right Wing Party is posing as the republican party which is fraudulent representation of the GOP.

Rather than serve the public interest, ALEC champions the agenda of corporations which are willing to pay for access to legislators and the opportunity to write their very own legislation. It helps surrogates and lobbyists for corporations to draft and promote bills which do the following.

• gut environmental laws

• create a regressive tax system

• eliminate workers’ rights = lower wages

• undermine universal and affordable health care

• privatize public education

• chip away at voting rights.

Of course there are Kansans who don't believe in the Affordable Care Act. They are the ones who don't care that some hospitals are forced to charge those who are insured up to $800 for certain items that cost less than $10 to manufacture such as an IV bag of saline with additives such as antibiotics or certain other medications added.The reason is that the cost has to cover not just the bag, but the pay of the physician that ordered the treatment, the pharmacist that mixed in the drug, the pharm tech who delivered it to the patient, the nurse who administered it, the tubing it was administered through, etc. This is how hospitals make up the shortfall from mandatory care of indigent and other non-paying patients. The current medical care payment system in this country is backward and stupid. We really need to work towards a single payer system and the Affordable Care Act is the right way to set the proper course in place before us.
