Though far from perfect, the Affordable Care Act begins to address the inequities of access that cost all of us dearly, including covering pre-existing conditions, young adults, and preventive care for women.
Faced with censure and threat of dissolution, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs responded with striking changes that earned widespread praise. By 2004, a RAND corporation study implied that VA care had become America’s best.
Conservatives won a substantial victory on Thursday.
The physics of American politics — actions provoking reactions — continues to move the crucial debate, about the nature of the American regime, toward conservatism. Chief Justice John Roberts has served this cause.
