Health care reform is a worthwhile goal here in the U.S. Universal health care via a single payer system would be better still, but the corporations that own our politicians are unlikely to allow that any time soon. Extracting ourselves from two wars is another worthwhile goal. And yet, it seems that there is so much money being made by some companies from these wars that this may take considerably longer than it should.
I have been fairly disappointed not to hear much more from the Democratic majority about education. I think that it should be a much higher priority. Much like our health care system, the U.S. suffers from a broken educational system. Our citizenry has become alarmingly stupid and misinformed. Perhaps corporate America has something to gain from this state of affairs too.
