Semi-Republicans Show Semi-Support for Healthcare


Several semi-employed Republicans have recently said they support Barack Obama’s healthcare reform plan, but today brings news that a couple of employed semi-Republicans do too: Arnold Schwarzenegger (technically an R but pretty much disowned by most of his party) and Michael Bloomberg (currently pretending to be an independent).  There’s still not much in the way of support from anyone who’s both employed and a red-blooded Republican, but it’s a start.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
