Wal-Mart Reads My Blog

I'm totally taking credit for this.

You may remember that I suggested that corporations and labor get together on the health care issue here. Apparently, Wal-Mart, Intel, and several other companies have joined labor union leaders to call for universal health care. Of course, Wal-Mart's been getting the government to pay for its health care for a while, by encouraging poorly paid employees to seek state aid. So, this is just the next logical step for them. But it's good!

I do love an unlikely alliance.

I thought your solution was very insightful and obviously empathetic with both sides of the issue. I had very little hope that anything so elegant would seriously be considered. But what a great idea to get disenfranchised people in need coupled with high powered entities that can afford influential lobbyists.

Yay for the mC's telepathic power of suggestion! Yes, I will be buying you a bottle of Bombay Sapphire. Why would you even question that? It's the most sensible to do....
