Forget the headlines: Here are 5 fundamental facts about Obamacare (with bonus GIFs)

1. You have until December 15th to sign up.

I’m currently uninsured and I’ve gone onto the New York exchange to compare my options.  Like I’ve said before, I had 124 choices, so going through them is taking time.  But let’s be real: I’m probably going to be like this until the first deadline on December 14th:

And for people who are uninsured who want to avoid the $95 penalty, you have until March 31st to sign up.  Only the people who want coverage beginning on January 1st, have to sign up by December 15th.  We all procrastinate.  Most Americans will sign up at the very last minute.

Did Wendy Davis just hint at a run for Texas governor?

This would be the best news! On October 3rd, Texas State Senator Wendy Davis will announce her future plans.  The consensus is that she’s running for governor of Texas but until she officially announces we can only hope.

Her run against the sitting and forgetful Governor Rick Perry would be an epic battle of fundraising and outside cash is going to be key in how formidable Davis can be against Perry who has been in office for over a decade.

Certainly, Davis’ candidacy would fire up this website give folks outside of Texas a real opportunity to be excited about a statewide race in the traditionally red state.  If you would like to get Senator Davis’ announcement

People who say more good guys with guns is the solution lack firing neurons

The NRA’s argument that more guns is necessary to prevent mass shootings, or any shootings was always nonsense.  The ridiculousness of this argument is on display yet again, with the recent news out of Georgia where a man shot and killed a young Latino man who accidentally pulled into his driveway.

Via NBC Latino:

Rodrigo Diaz, 22, was driving around with his girlfriend and two friends when he pulled into a driveway, thinking they had arrived at another friend’s house, his brother says. But instead he pulled into the driveway of Phillip Sailors, 69, who thought his home was being robbed, his lawyer says. Sailors then shot Diaz, according to the police report, citing what Sailors told officers at the ...

Obama for America launches “For All” website to hit Romney for dismissing half the nation

In 2008, Obama for America broke down barriers with their website format which mirrored Facebook (and was in fact designed by one of the founders of Facebook) and in doing so appealed specifically to younger voters.  This year, the Obama campaign is leaps and bounds ahead of Team Romney when it comes to the effective use of social media.

Today they have launched a great new interactive site in response to Mitt Romney’s now infamous (and a popular GIF’d “gaffe”) 47% video which shows America which campaign is FOR ALL which is intended to target voters between the ages of 18-29 (for a second I’ll pretend that I’m 29).

The images will appear on the Obama 2012 Instagram and everyone can ...

Mia Love demonstrates Republican senselessness

Rising political star Mayor Mia Love (R-UT) had her big interview on Fox News Sunday this week. She’s a rising star and a congressional candidate who got a coveted speaking slot in prime time at their convention in Tampa.  If she wasn’t a household name before the Republican National Convention, she is now.

In a party lacking diversity, Mia Love has a future.  As an African American woman, Republicans will surely love her as she represents their future as they struggle to become a party of more than older whites.

But Mia Love doesn’t make any sense when it comes to a women’s right to choose. Shocking I know.  In all seriousness though, if you are going to state publicly that you are ...

DNC: Women take center stage

There is no question that this is a choice election.  Almost every speech whether delivered by the First Lady or the president of Planned Parenthood has received a raucous reception from delegates and supporters here in Charlotte particularly on issues impacting women. The Democratic party will emerge from this week’s convention as the party solidly on the side of women, in stark contrast to the other side, and the message is clear: Trust women.

I was surprised by the willingness with which the convention has stood firm and the issue of choice not only in rhetoric but with who is given coveted prime time speaking slots.  The president of NARAL Pro-Choice America, the president of Planned Parenthood, and of course women’s ...
