Government cuts health care, hands billions to corporations

Most of us are familiar with the numbers: 45 million people with no health insurance, and every year the number seems to grow. And now we're told the government has cut Medicaid (federal-state health insurance for the poor), and proposes to cut Medicare (federal health insurance for the elderly and disabled).


Cover Story

The attack on immigrants is an attack on us all

As we go to press, hundreds of thousands of people are taking to the streets across the country to rally against HR 4437, the anti-immigrant, anti-worker legislation that the U.S. House passed in December. In Chicago, Washington, D.C., and on March 25, in Los Angeles -- where some 500,000 marched -- immigrants and citizens stood up to reject the government's attempt to further criminalize the undocumented and those who help them. More marches are planned. Also at press time, the Senate is preparing to take up its own version of this terroristic legislation.
