The Obamacare Curse: What If, Next Month, the Republicans Finally Get What They Want?

It is dawning on the GOP that snatching health insurance away from millions of helpless victims is not quite as rewarding as expected. Last summer, two Republican-appointed federal judges ruled, against the furious dissent of the Democratic appointee, in favor of what had theretofore been viewed as an outlandish lawsuit designed to blow up Obamacare. The unexpected progress of the lawsuit, hatched by anti-Obamacare activists at a right-wing think tank, filled conservatives with sudden Schadenfreude. They...

Connecticut Makes Rare Progress On School Segregation As America Moves Backwards

Students at the CREC Academy of Aerospace and Engineering High School. When Connecticut high school senior Akbar Maliki looks back on his high school experience, he can think of only one negative: his school has made him so open to and accepting of diversity, he says, that he worries about his ability to make friends with people from too-similar backgrounds. "I'm always going to be looking for the next diverse group. It's hard for me to be...

Immigration Hardliners Prevail In Fight Over Dreamers And The Military

Asking the Department of Defense to consider allowing young undocumented immigrants to enlist proved a bridge too far Thursday in the Republican-led House of Representatives. Members voted 221 to 202 to strip a measure from the National Defense Authorization Act that asks the secretary of defense to review policies on whether certain undocumented young people, often called Dreamers, can join the military if they have work authorization.

Latest GOP Immigration Showdown Headed to Floor?

The question of whether undocumented immigrants should be allowed to serve in the U.S. military — a thorny debate that has split Republicans in the House — is headed for a risky floor vote. A vote stripping out pro-immigration language on the issue, which is currently tucked into the fiscal 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, is welcomed by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle who have clamored for a return to “regular order.” But backers of the defense spending bill, especially GOP...
