Support single payer blogging!

First of all, many many thanks to those of my readers who have been kind enough to hit the link and make a donation. It makes it much easier to keep blogging about single payer health care, Michelle Rhee’s follies, and the many other problems that confront us. THANK YOU.

I need just a few more donations and my most pressing needs will be met. This is a labor of love, but it has an opportunity cost. It doesn’t cost much, but it isn’t free either. I need your help to keep blogging about health care.

If you have steady employment, and are not overburdened with debt, this blogger would be especially appreciative of your support.
