Obama’s Bigger Playing Field

The debate over the Affordable Care Act can stay small, focusing on website failures and other short-term difficulties facing the law. Or it can get bigger, with wider insurance coverage seen as part of a larger struggle for social justice in a nation growing steadily less equal.

Morally Questionable Go-To Weapon

U.S. drone attacks in Afghanistan, Pakistan and other countries may be militarily effective, but they are killing innocent civilians in a way that is obscene and immoral. I’m afraid that ignoring this ugly fact makes Americans complicit in murder.

Democrats Finally Off the Filibuster on Executive Nominees

Republicans filibustering seemingly every second to obstruct the Obama administration’s agenda has gotten under Democrats’ skin at last. Thursday, after being dared by the GOP to go nuclear, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid pulled the plug on filibustering, allowing presidential nominees to be approved with a simple majority vote for the remainder of this Congress.

Why Republicans Suddenly Care About Canceled Health Policies

Amid the current national uproar over the troubles of the Affordable Care Act, it is almost uplifting to hear the deep concern expressed by politicians, pundits, lobbyists and corporate leaders over cancellation of existing health insurance policies.

Meet Phillip Steel, the Drone Hunter

In his “Difference Makers” segment, Stephen Colbert introduces us to the man who will keep America safe from surveillance drones—or at the very least, Deer Trail, Colo. As Colbert puts it, Steel’s a man famous for “shooting for the stars,” a phrase that takes on new meaning as the Centennial State vigilante cocks his shotgun and aims at it at the sky.
