This isn't what Democrats are saying Republicans are going to do. This is what Republicans are saying Republicans are going to do.
There's an epidemic in America that's not getting the attention it deserves: hospital closures. The situation is so dire that, according to the American Medical Association, almost one third of all emergency rooms in the country have closed since the mid-nineties.
The GOP is no longer grand but it's most certainly old. During an age of social and technological upheaval Republicans remain mired in an old world way of thinking that -- despite president Obama's many shortcomings -- will be their political downfall.
We have now entered the homestretch of the 2014 midterm election season, with less than a week to go before Election Day. Many Senate races remain incredibly close, and Democrats got some welcome news this week from far up north.
The Democrats' desperate shouts that Republicans want to destroy Medicare are as predictable as autumn's falling leaves. The irony here is that the "War on Seniors" is actually being waged by President Obama and his Congressional allies.
"Price transparency" drags out into the open a number, price or charge, that has no real meaning in healthcare. In other activities, the price is what the consumer pays to the seller.

Michael Carvin, the lead attorney in this round of attacks on the ACA, apparently expects the Supreme Court to play along with him. But he might have trouble convincing the justices to join his game.
Misconceptions about the Ebola problem have spread more rapidly than a tropical fever. In the interest of clarifying the situation, here are a number of points that need to be made.
A crisis is a terrible thing to waste, and the Republicans are capitalizing on every crisis, foreign and domestic. With less than two weeks to go before the midterm elections, Republicans are perfectly positioned to win control of the U.S. Senate because the president is unpopular.
The small business community, including self-employed and micro-businesses, welcomed a major benefit this tax year: a new, streamlined IRS home office standardized deduction.
Without Medicaid, millions of Americans must delay getting care because they are afraid of incurring costs they cannot afford. In states that rejected expansion, low-income people often rely on hospitals for emergency and other needed care.
