Health care plan fair
In all the millions of words spoken and written about the Supreme Court's decision in National Federation of Independent Business, et al. v. Sebelius, Secretary of Health and Human Services (or the Affordable Care Act or "Obamacare"), something important has been overlooked: the benefits...

Here's what's wrong with bill
Well, now politics has really gotten personal. Which is why I don't agree with many of my conservative friends who say that now that America has taken the (literally) suicidal step of turning our health care over to our government via "ObamaCare," it's a permanent setup that will...

It's fun to drink deeply of this GOP whine
I love the sound of Republicans whining in the morning. Boo-hoo-hoo. The GOP lost the presidency and a big congressional election back in 2008. With the passage of President Obama's health care bill, they've now lost the most significant domestic political battle since the 1960s....
