Good morning dear readers,
Thanks to Simon Owens of bloggasm, http://www.bloggasm.com/, here’s a link to Comcast’s announcement that it’s opposed to the Chamber of Commerce position on federal healthcare reform:
And here is a quote from the piece Simon sent: “But on Thursday, Comcast, the nation’s largest cable provider, came out and endorsed the Senate health care legislation. CEO Brian Roberts sent a letter to President Obama saying that the “enactment of comprehensive health care reform legislation is, in my judgment, critical to putting this country on a path of sustained growth and prosperity.”
And while you’re at it, go here, here: http://www.nationalpartnership.org/, to get updates on the healthcare legislation, and, in particular, regarding the plan by Senators Hatch and Nelson, a DEMOCRAT, to do as follows:
“Today (Monday), we expect Senators Nelson (D-NE) and Hatch (R-UT) to offer an outrageous amendment paralleling the House Stupak language which would ban abortion coverage in public and private insurance plans that receive federal funds. But the underlying bill already contains significant compromise language that precludes federal funds from being used for abortion services.
