President Barack Obama's health care reform law has been through an awful lot since it was conceived in the halls of Congress during 2009 and 2010. Mo...
In his second term Obama needs to build new and real things that tangibly improve the lives of the middle class and, yes, the poor; and advance the ball on the things he says he also cares about: the environment, immigration, education, tech, etc, plus figuring out what his consistent view is of foreign and defense policy.
A new Huffington Post/YouGov poll shows voters modestly hopeful about Barack Obama's chances of being more successful in his second term. And, given the haplessness of his Republican foes, Obama is in an unusually strong position to deliver on the potential of his second term -- but only if he has the will and wherewithal to turn ballot-box victory into real-life results. That's the bottom line of an in-depth survey by The Huffington Post of the problems and prospects facing the president as he prepares for a second inauguration. Today we launch a series of stories giving you in-depth results of that survey: 20 reported pieces during the next week, 14 from the U.S. and six from overseas; pairs of expert blog posts published with each domestic story; HuffPost Live video interviews with reporters; and poll data from HuffPost/YouGov.

Today, over a dozen Republican-controlled states are refusing to set up the health care exchanges that are called for by the bill and are eschewing expanded Medicaid coverage which the legislation also provides for.
Lately, Obamacare has been an unavoidable topic. It's covered extensively by the media and is given extra consideration because of the recent election as well as the Supreme Court's ruling on June 28th, 2012 to uphold the law. But how will it affect our personal finances?
Disruption. Get ready to hear that word many times in the coming weeks, especially if you hang out inside the Washington beltway.
What I didn't see coming, what I did not expect, was how ashamed everyone is about their lack of health coverage. I've been caught off guard, these last weeks, when friends and acquaintances have cornered me and whispered of their own non-insured situations.
Two years after the law was passed, and six months after the Supreme Court affirmed its legality, only now do we have the opportunity to explain the benefits of Obamacare to families, workers, and employees -- without the noise, distraction, and confusion of a political campaign getting in the way.
Businesses criticizing Obamacare have made two contradictory arguments about the impact of the employer mandate, and projections of a purported U.S. financial crisis arising from the safety net are baseless.
Health care for all. That's what President Barack Obama's reelection means to the more than 40 million Americans who either do not have health insurance or do not have enough.
While it is true that bills seeking to curb women's rights to contraception, abortion, and equal pay for equal work are originating with Republicans, let's be honest: Women's rights are not at the top of the Democratic agenda in Congress.
Now that Obamacare is real and functioning, we appear to be seeing a real-life example of the correlation-without-causation problem. How do the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services establish that the reason a patient was admitted was because of a hospital's negligence?
Though detailed evidence of Romney's health care scam is in plain sight, the workaday press, focused as it is on the presidential "horse race," has largely given Romney a free pass on what it would actually mean.
