There are a lot of reasons why Americans don't know how the law affects them or why they believe things about Obamcare that aren't true. One of the biggest reasons is the failure of many in the media to provide anything other than the most superficial coverage.
As time wears on, the following prediction will seem less like science fiction and more like science fact: The Republicans will eventually try to take credit for the Affordable Care Act. The fact that it's proving itself to be increasingly successful, along with the reality that much of the law was originally conceived by Republicans, makes it absolutely ripe for the plucking.
The wrongheaded Obama college-ranking system, I'm afraid, is yet another example of how the gulf between rhetoric and behavior develops widespread disappointment and disillusion.
I see the ACA's positive impact first-hand in my home state, a place whose collective poor health has long been jeopardizing the lives and financial security of hard-working families who can't seem to get ahead.
Change is good... scary, but good. I have said this many times and about a variety of topics because it is consistently true. Change is inevitable so, even if you are a person who despises change, it is best to find the positive in it, adapt and forge ahead.
The first time I blew the whistle on health insurance companies was during a Senate Commerce Committee hearing in June 2009.

There is one thing we do know for certain: Anyone who tells you definitively that only one side or the other is to blame has absolutely no interest in fixing institutional inequality.
Implementing Medicaid expansion quickly, effectively, and responsibly will not only improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of struggling North Carolinians through greater access to coordinated health care, but it will save the state and taxpayers billions of dollars.
Our democracy is at its strongest when it includes as many voices as possible. This week, we're celebrating the NVRA for 21 years -- and counting -- of protecting and enhancing the nation's voter registration process, including ensuring a free, fair and accessible electoral system for all eligible voters.
Utilizing the CHIP-proven approach of proactive problem solving should help set the ACA up for the same kind of success and widespread support that CHIP now enjoys.
A Charleston, South Carolina man who thought he had pretty good health insurance may miss work today, as he has several times already this year, becau...
There's much to be said for the so-called Mediterranean diet -- diets low in red meat and high in fish, nuts, vegetables, beans and heart-healthy fats like olive oil. But if that's the diet you want to eat, you certainly aren't going to find it at "Italian" chain restaurants in America.
If Obamacare is indeed so awful and unaffordable, why are its critics having so much trouble finding one person in Michigan who has indisputably been harmed by it?
The bottom-line: America's small business community continues to play on an unfair and unequal field when contrasted with their corporate counterparts.
Republicans have been predicting that premiums will skyrocket since the Affordable Care Act was first proposed. Predictions that premiums will rise do have some grounding. But the question is, do we have enough evidence to support this?
