In coming weeks, we can expect the Republican-controlled Congress to push two Obamacare bills that would hike profits for some businesses. What we can't expect, from either Republicans or Democrats, unfortunately, is any effort to help families, even those with insurance, to stay out of bankruptcy court because of mounting medical bills.
The new year demands predictions. As those demands must be satisfied, here are mine: 1. President Barack Obama will be blamed for everything, from pe...
Can a single piece of legislation really save our country millions every year, and at the same time improve the care of those with mental illness? It sounds too good to be true, but it is not.
For those candidates who took the Elizabeth Warren message and stayed strongly with it throughout their campaign, they didn't fade and they won tough races, or races that could have been a lot tougher if they had faltered.
Democratic partisans spread the blame around: President Obama, party leaders, lethargic blue voters, and a hostile media. Nonetheless, there are five elementary lessons to be learned from the debacle.
Ted Cruz immediately took to Facebook and Twitter calling Net Neutrality "Obamacare for the Internet." Shortly after his tantrum, the Internet erupted with cartoons, videos, and comments. After all, the Internet is full of creative people who have unfettered access to the Internet right now.

It was the first time that the military allowed an organization outside the military to cook for so many soldiers and marines.
There's not one Internet for deep-pocketed corporations and a separate Internet for everyone else -- there's the Internet, and it belongs to all of us. That's the way it's always been. And that's the way it should continue to be.
There's endless speculation about why progressive talk shows repeatedly fail on commercial radio, and the latest to go down is Gloria Neal's morning s...
The powerful, super-wealthy people at the top of the economic food chain have noticed all this populist stirring. Boy, have they noticed.
