The first African-American president has been painted as opposing the interests of white people, and while Glenn Beck has stated this verbatim, this sentiment has been a cornerstone of Tea Party politics.
My guess is that by the time everyone votes in November, the Republican anti-Obamacare strategy is hardly going to cause a ripple, while the debate over immigration reform is going to be the main event.
Increasingly, evidence tells us that for particularly vulnerable populations, lack of housing and instability more than determine health, they dictate health.
[This piece appeared in newspapers in my conservative congressional District in Virginia.] How did it come to this? How did our political life in...
or, Who Really Pays for ObamaCare? By now you are probably sick and tired of hearing about Obamacare. I mean really, the law is already enacted, i...
That's right. Republicans have sued the President of the United States. That's a pretty serious action. Must've been over something so egregious... something so detrimental to America's health and welfare... something that, if unchecked, could literally bring down our great nation. Guess again.
As I write this, the House has still not managed to pass a bill to deal with the border crisis. They've been trying for a few days now, but have been locked in a serious battle between Tea Party hardliners and Republicans from more moderate districts.
I am tired of emails. Not because I get too many of them (I do). It's because most of them are pretty dumb. I am what they call in the trade a "base voter." Also consequently, I am on everyone's email list.
Six federal judges ruled Tuesday on the legality of subsidies being provided for low-income subscribers under so-called Obamacare. The two with solid Republican credentials found the program illegal.
More uninsured parents and children are getting health care coverage. That's a very good thing.

Politicians have misled voters for as long as there have been politicians. At times, though, and not so long ago, it was not a death wish to claim to be a moderate willing to work with members of the other party. That's hardly possible when message makers call the shots.
The July 22 decision of a divided three-judge DC Federal Circuit Court panel invalidating the Affordable Care Act's (ACA) premium tax credits for anyone purchasing insurance on a Federal Exchange proves that you can "just make this stuff up."
When I learned that House Speaker John Boehner is suing President Barack Obama, I thought about a number of good reasons for something to limit executive actions. For example, would it be to limit NSA spying on its citizens?
Matalin and Corn debate déjà vu news - Israel back in Gaza and ACA back in court. Consensus: there's not a media bias but a rough balance between pro-Israel talking heads and the flood of photos of dead civilians. Also: why not label GMOs in processed food?
Paul Ryan is attempting to address poverty, once again. What he's really doing is trolling the media to write "compassionate conservative" columns about him (which, so far, doesn't seem to be working very well), to bolster his chances to get the Republican presidential nomination.
