DeanCare details by The Bloviator http://dean2004.blogspot.com/2003_05_11_bloviate_archive.html#94330054
The Bloviator is an expert on health insurance issues - Ross' series on The Uninsured in America is essential reading for anyone interested in the economic impact of having medical uninsured. The series ran during Cover the Uninsured Week (March 10th - 16th) and here are the entries:
- 5580 a day will lose their insurance
- uncompensated care: how much, and who pays?
- physicians and charity care
- rising costs mean employers drop coverage
- state budget crises
- legal immigrants and the five-year bar
- coverage proposals
This series is well-supported by solid data, and is a resource that we Dean supporters need to be familiar with if intend to defend Dean against charges that universal medical insurance is a big-government boondoggle. I urge everyone to drop by The Bloviator and give that series a read.

Obama 2008 - I want my country back
Nation-Building was founded by Aziz Poonawalla in August 2002 under the name Dean Nation. Dean Nation was the very first weblog devoted to a presidential candidate, Howard Dean, and became the vanguard of the Dean netroot phenomenon, raising over $40,000 for the Dean campaign, pioneering the use of Meetup, and enjoying the attention of the campaign itself, with Joe Trippi a regular reader (and sometime commentor). Howard Dean himself even left a comment once. Dean Nation was a group weblog effort and counts among its alumni many of the progressive blogsphere's leading talent including Jerome Armstrong, Matthew Yglesias, and Ezra Klein. After the election in 2004, the blog refocused onto the theme of "purple politics", formally changing its name to Nation-Building in June 2006. The primary focus of the blog is on articulating purple-state policy at home and pragmatic liberal interventionism abroad.
