Eyes Will Dry Over Obamacare / Updated Jan 8, 2010

About the Obamacare website rollout: So-rry. Yes, it's a mess. Tears of apology have flooded the streets of Washington, raising the Potomac to dangerous levels. But the federal health plan's website will be fixed. (The state exchanges seem to have it right.) Once Americans can get inside the doors, most should appreciate their options. To use real estate parlance, Obamacare is not currently a "drive-by." Between... Read more.

Can Wall Street Buy Redemption? / Updated Jun 3, 2009

Goldman Sachs churns out enormous profits from its high-rolling, casino investment schemes, while also churning out fat paychecks for its top executives. They literally sack up the gold, even as their speculative gambles have wreaked havoc on our real economy.

The Case for Republicans Going Conservative / Updated Aug 31, 2009

The Republican family argument has gone public. Warring camps within the GOP agree that their party has lost the national popular vote in five of the past six presidential elections. But they disagree vehemently about what to do about it. One group of Republicans — whom, for lack of imagination, we will call the Shirts — blames the party's failure to change with the changing times. The... Read more.

Will GOP Pass Up Hispanic Lifeline? / Updated Sep 16, 2009

Nothing in Washington is ever about what it is about. Health care, keeping violent weapons away from violent people and putting 11 million undocumented workers on a path to citizenship are about none of these things. Instead, they are all about scorekeeping. The Obama administration came out of the government shutdown ahead with the American people. Most people blamed the Republicans in the House for... Read more.
