Olbermann Throws $50,000 Towards Sponsoring FreeClinics Here in Butte Montana

by jhwygirl

I was watching Keith My Hero Olbermann tonight – as was 4&20’s Chuck – when Olbermann offered up $50,000 towards helping sponsor the National Association of Free Clinics here in Butte Montana.

The idea is to sponsor Free Clinics in each of the states where their senators (in our case, Sen. Max Baucus) are standing in the way of meaningful health insurance reform.

Butte Montana America USA? A town steeped deep in labor history, unions and corporate irresponsibility run amuck? A struggling town, fighting to come back?

Butte Civic Center, anyone?

I think Montana’s Democratic Party should sponsor the rental of that facility. Stand behind its talk of support for public option and health reform. County Democratic Parties around the state should join together and help make this happen.

I can’t seem to figure out how to embed MSNBC videos. That is annoying to no end, especially since Olbermann is what I usually want to embed, and Olbermann is so easy on the eyes, and Olbermann is so wonderful…but I digress. If you want to watch Keith offer up the cash to Butte, check this out.

Count me in as being one who will do whatever is needed to help make this happen. Chuck too. And I’m betting a whole bunch of you readers out there, also.

Update: JC figures out MSNBC embeds!

    Way back when, when I lived in California, I used to go to the Berkeley Free Clinic for my health care.

    Of course, since I moved to Montana, I’ve pretty much done without.

    Well, we can have the Berkeley Pit Free Clinic here in Butte.

    Too bad Obie didn’t throw in earlier.

    He could have edged out Obama for the peace prize.

    • ssssshhhhh!!!

      don’t talk about that! you’ll notice a very loud silence on this issue when even liberals have to acknowledge he hasn’t done shit to deserve it.

    Just to be clear, he’s pitching in $10k for each of the 5 states involved. Good for you Keith.
