46 Million

leave a comment »

Anders Nilsen weighs in on the healthcare debate by organizing a series of auctions of artwork to raise money to raise awareness of the issues surrounding the debate and the 46 million people who have no healthcare.

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned to my wife, Heather that I was thinking about putting a couple of drawings or paintings up for auction on ebay to raise a little money to influence the health care debate. The fact that some democrats were beginning to distance themselves from a Public Option (a compromise from the beginning, since Single Payer is, to me and most on the left, really the only sane system) was frustrating, infuriating, depressing, etc. The screaming morons and outrageous lies turning up at town hall meetings all over the country were just as bad. Heather said “Sure, good idea, but why don’t you get some other people involved and raise some real money.” So I did. Click here to see the auction (or go to ebay and search for “46 Million”).

Get over to Anders’ blog and read the full story
