Some highlights from this week:
“We have an audience that loves to read about politics affecting actual human beings, and not just hearing about goings-on from the Hill. Whenever we have 'real-people stories,' we feature those pretty heavily.” -- Paige Lavender
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court took up a challenge to Obamacare. If you like your health insurance, will you get to keep it? We talked to health care reporter Jeff Young about how nine people in robes could become the Affordable Care Act's final death panel.
“John Roberts had a chance to kill this thing three years ago. He chose not to, and went to great lengths to do so and made a lot of people very upset. So why do it now in such a weird way over such an arcane dispute?” -- Jeff Young
Finally, you might have heard that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) doesn't know whether President Barack Obama is a Christian, but did you know Walker kicked labor unions right in the collective bargaining unit this week? Labor reporter Dave Jamieson tells us all about it.
“Here’s the thing. Walker has called private sector unions his partner in economic development. A lot of people thought he didn’t want this, and the reason is that he’s already famous for breaking unions.” -- Dave Jamieson
