Isn't it strange that the GOP, the political party that has heretofore consistently and vociferously opposed frivolous lawsuits, spurious malpractice claims and the trail lawyers' lobby, has now decided to spend taxpayer money to hire trial lawyers to bring what is essentially a frivolous malpractice lawsuit against President Obama?
You may encounter intense controversy around the idea of cleaning of America's electricity sector for any one of these three reasons: genuine economic risk, ideology or partisanship. Here are five things to remember as you do.
More uninsured parents and children are getting health care coverage. That's a very good thing. But implementing policies like Express Lane Eligibility that can help get those with limited resources access to health care in a streamlined and efficient way while generating administrative savings, well, that's a great thing.
Religious beliefs are not a license to discriminate, nor to make health care decisions for someone else. But our focus right now is on minimizing the damage created by the Hobby Lobby decision.
Politicians have misled voters for as long as there have been politicians. At times, though, and not so long ago, it was not a death wish to claim to be a moderate willing to work with members of the other party. That's hardly possible when message makers call the shots.
The July 22 decision of a divided three-judge DC Federal Circuit Court panel invalidating the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) premium tax credits for anyone purchasing insurance on a Federal Exchange proves that you can "just make this stuff up."
When I learned that House Speaker John Boehner is suing President Barack Obama, I thought about a number of good reasons for something to limit executive actions. For example, would it be to limit NSA spying on its citizens?
Two separate federal appellate courts issued contradicting decisions this week that could potentially impact how millions of people pay for health insurance.

Following the roll-out of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), many employers have seen their health care costs rise. Our new report, "2014 Employer-Sponsored Health Care: ACA's Impact," shows some will pass those new costs onto their staff.

New York State has long been a leader in advancing women's equality, stretching back to the Seneca Falls Convention 166 years ago this weekend. Sadly, as we mark this important anniversary, hard-won victories by the women's rights movement are being threatened by a radical right wing that seeks to roll back the progress we've made.
With growing evidence that the ACA is succeeding in expanding health insurance coverage and access to health care, any alternative faces a higher and higher hill.
