Wake up, Aristotle, logic is over! Now we have GOP Logic, and it explains everything. Just learn these nine new laws, and all will become clear.
January 22 is the 41st anniversary of the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. Roe was supposed to put an end to the fight over access to a life-saving procedure. Far from it.
Knowing I've been both a critic of insurance company practices and a supporter of efforts to reform the industry, a FOX news producer reached out last week to get my take on accusations by conservatives that Obamacare will actually result in a bailout of big insurance companies.
