Thursday, July 16th, 2009 The Movie Channel,
this evening, will be airing the Oscar-nominated documentary, "Sicko,"
Michael Moore's film about a villain known as the health insurance
industry. With the debate raging in Washington, D.C. -- Republicans
trying to scuttle it, the President trying to hang on to his public
option, and nearly a hundred members of Congress pushing for a
single-payer system -- showing "Sicko" tonight is very timely. Mike
lays out all the facts and the arguments as to why the private
insurance companies are never going to side with what's best for the
American people. "Sicko" airs on The Movie Channel tonight at 8:00
PM. It's also scheduled to air on The Movie Channel on July 27th at
4:05 PM and on TMC Xtra on August 2nd at 10:45 PM and August 5th at
2:15 AM and 7:30 AM. Click here for showtimes. There are people around the country who are holding "Sicko" viewing parties this weekend in their homes. Check out this call to revisit "Sicko" on the Daily Kos this week. We are in a critical time regarding which direction the health care debate is going to go. Make your voice heard. And be armed with the facts. Watch "Sicko" again!

Roll Call Sen.
Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) on Thursday said he would not testify in court or
before the Ethics Committee about any advice he gave Sen. John Ensign
(R-Nev.) on how to handle his affair with a former staffer, citing
constitutional protections for communications during religious
counseling, as well as the patient confidentiality privilege. “I was
counseling him as a physician and as an ordained deacon. ... That is
privileged communication that I will never reveal to anybody. Not to
the Ethics Committee, not to a court of law, not to anybody,” Coburn
said. Read more
