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.

When President Obama was elected, 88 percent of Americans -- including my 87 year-old grandmother -- agreed that we needed to do something to fix our ailing health care system... That's why, for millions of seniors, the Affordable Care Act was a very welcome solution.

Sunday Roundup

This week was all about the Supreme Court -- and the suddenly surprising John Roberts. First, the Chief Justice guided the court through a split-the-baby decision on Arizona's immigration law, allowing the noxious "show-your-papers" provision to stand while striking down three others. (Splitting the baby was very much in vogue: see News Corp.) Then came the landmark health care ruling in which Roberts, perhaps mindful of a recent poll showing three-quarters of Americans think he and his fellow justices allow political views to influence their decisions, found a narrow way to uphold Obamacare -- a move that left many conservatives fuming, caused Justice Kennedy to accuse Roberts of "vast judicial overreaching," and prompted Albert Brooks to tweet: "It's a terrific day in America. I'm gonna go out and get wildly sick." Much closer to home, we mourned the passing -- and celebrated the life -- of Nora Ephron (see here, here, here, here, here -- and read Nora's HuffPost posts here).
