Campaign '68

Many see similarities between the 2016 presidential election campaign and one almost half a century earlier. The 1968 presidential campaign was one of the most dramatic and significant contests for the White House in the 20th century. It was a close, bitterly-fought campaign in a raucous, bloody year. Ultimately, the Democratic Party lost its decades-long grip on national power, making way for the rise of Republican conservatism that profoundly reshaped American public policy for the next 40 years.

After getting kicked off MinnesotaCare (along with about 100,000 other Minnesotans), I began using a free clinic but did not receive blood tests, which would have shown deteriorating kidneys. Had I known, it would have enabled me to begin a dietary regime that would have helped, although better diabetes control with medications would have helped more. Thus, I am now living with one-fourth of the normal kidney function, and will likely be on a waiting list for a transplant in the future. I am now old enough for Medicare and UCare (a nonprofit health plan in Minnesota and Wisconsin for seniors and people with low incomes or disabilities), and when I need a transplant, it will be much more costly than monitoring and meds would have been on MinnesotaCare.
