Usually brilliant at framing political issues, Republicans blundered by positing broccoli as the symbolic test of Obamacare. Republicans should have chosen zucchini.
The narrow survival of the Affordable Care Act last week was certainly cause for celebration. But as the jubilation subsides, it's important to realize that having avoided what would have been a giant step backward doesn't mean we've taken a giant step forward.
While the law's success in the nation's high court could provide extra impetus for black Americans to vote and volunteer for Obama's campaign, it could also provide the catalyst for the resurgence of the Tea Party.
President Obama promised that if you have health insurance now, it won't change. Here are sevn ways he lied: 1) Under the new law your insurer can't ...
It appears that the only way that Obamacare, as its opponents call it, can be repealed is by a victory in November of Mitt Romney who -- by a patent irony -- passed a similar bill in Massachusetts when he was governor there.

You probably didn't wake up this morning biting your fingernails over the Supreme Court's looming decision on the Affordable Care Act. I did.
