Losing the Health Care Battle Is Not an Option

Just pass the damn thing. If the health care bill fails, President Barack Obama’s legacy could be limited to the failing war in Afghanistan. Worse yet, many thousands more Americans will die because they don’t have adequate medical care.

Making the Case for Gay Marriage

Why should we care about the Proposition 8 same-sex marriage trial in San Francisco? Most people aren’t gay or lesbian. Many think marriage is unimportant. Others feel Afghanistan, unemployment, Haiti and health care are much more deserving of attention.

It’s Not Too Late to Mend the Ailing Health Care Bill

The flawed health care bill could still be improved if the president would stand up to the insurance companies that have, so far, been the most powerful force shaping reform.
