Medicaid Laws Cause Couples to Divorce in States Like Kentucky

When you hear about people separating because of politics, you likely think it's because of differences of opinions. You probably don't consider the idea that it's because they couldn't get health coverage if they stayed married, which is exactly what happened to Linda and Larry Drain, who have been sweethearts since college, married in 1981 and divorced for four years so Linda could continue to get the life-saving medicine she needs to live.

Vote Out the Net Neutrality Foes

Those of us who demand net neutrality are pretty angry over (well, a lot of things) our politicians' indifference to this issue. The fact that they'd like to create further inequity in the country when so much of it already exists is simply outrageous. Fight for the Future, an organization that's working to promote and protect net neutrality, has just made it easier to see who is trying to take it away from us.

How Far Do Your Politics Go?

There are plenty of casual voters in America. Some even forget to vote. Some say that they just HATE politics. Does anyone, aside from a politician, really love politics, though? Those who care about politics care about their rights (and/or the rights of others), otherwise they, too, would be disinterested. When a vote decides if you have health care, can make your own health decisions, whether or not your school will get funding... it's pretty important.
