#OccupyWallStreet has cracked open a little hole in history, creating a moment where some of the very core institutions of our economy are called into question. Along with indignation and outrage, there is a certain excitement in the air. Things that have been terrifyingly stuck seem to be moving. Something seems possible today that wasn't just a month ago.

While Solidarity Economics and other grassroots organizing does not primarily depend on legislation, nevertheless we can benefit by knowing the territory.  In the case of the health care debate, I only discovered that health care co-ops were raised during public discussions by two NYTimes articles, and that was based on Senator Kent Conrad´s proposals, and citing UWI economist Ann Hoyt.  More searching turned up an article by a Wisconsin news source.  I´ve created a previous posting about these citations.
