Linda Bergthold: The Supreme Court UPHOLDS Health Reform -- What Does It Mean for You?
In a surprise decision, the US Supreme Court has upheld the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act passed in 2010. You will hear a lot of commentary from legal and policy experts in the next few weeks about this decision, but this post is about what the Court action means for YOU personally. The outcry from the right will be deafening, and there will be attempts by the House Republicans between now and November to take out sections of the law, although the Senate Democratic majority is not likely to approve any of those actions. Obviously, if the Republicans win the Presidency and the Senate in November, the ACA may not survive to its full 2014 implementation date. Now is the time to acquaint yourself with what the health reform law really means to you -- while you still have it.
Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm: Another Reason to Hate Citizens United
It may be easy to assume that politicians love being showered in money. But here's a secret: the truth is, most of us hate it. Hate it.
Sen. Bernie Sanders: The American People Are Angry
If we are serious about dealing with the deficit and creating jobs in America, the wealthy are going to have to start paying their fair share of taxes. We also have to end the massive tax loopholes and subsidies that exist for major corporations.
Jennifer Weiner: Nora Ephron Made My Career Possible
You don't have to don the literary equivalent of a Tom Wolfe suit to be published or pretend you're a man, with a man's concerns and a man's voice, to get attention? My mind was officially blown.
Rita Wilson: My Friend Nora
Nora celebrated life to an insatiable degree, yet without any of the manic energy one associates with people who have "insatiable appetites" for life. She had a calm and elegant way of savoring every moment.
