Blind Ideological Justice

We are confronted with a conservative judiciary using any argument it can to win ideological victories that elude their side in the elected branches of government.

A More Accommodating Accommodation?

In his short and perplexing concurrence on Hobby Lobby, Justice Kennedy offered a path to resolving the dispute over the Affordable Care Act's contraception mandate.

After Hobby Lobby

It’s unfortunate that the Obama administration’s initial, parsimonious exemption for religious groups helped ignite the firestorm that led to Hobby Lobby.

Caught in the Gap

We are now beginning to see the consequences of Red State hostility to health-care reform, and they are devastating for the poor.

When Obamacare Was 'Doomed'

That the ACA hit its sign-up goal ought to give everyone pause over how reckless its opponents have been in making instant judgments and outlandish charges.

Catastrophic Coverage

With ACA enrollment numbers up and the troubled website stabilized, it’s worth looking back at the madness that gripped the Chicken Little pundits a few months ago.

Give It to Us Straight, Doc

The conventional wisdom seems to be that Americans, feeling ripped off by the Affordable Care Act, are ready to pounce. But how does that correspond to reality?

Obama, Confidence Builder

Consider Obama's State of the Union speech a bid to move the national conversation back to the economic basics: to “opportunity for everybody."

Moving Day

There’s nothing easy about watching one’s father drift out of his own life. Alzheimer’s, old age, senility—whatever you call it—is distressing for everyone.

The Resurgent Progressives

The re-emergence of a Democratic left will be one of the major stories of 2014. Moderates, don’t be alarmed: Its return is good news for the political center.

Alternative Medicine

The Republican leadership seems to hope Obamacare will collapse under its own weight. Not all conservatives are convinced of the wisdom of that approach.

The ACLU Takes on the Bishops

Contrary to popular belief, the USCCB does not have the power to tell individual bishops—or Catholic health-care systems—what to do and what not to do.
