    Now that the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld President Obama's Affordable Care Act, Vermont is plowing ahead with its efforts to establish a system of single-payer state health care where every resident will eventually be eligible for publicly-funded coverage. The program known as Green Mountain Care is still very much a work in progress and, at best, it will take another five or six years to fully fund and implement this system.

    ANGEL FIRE, N.M., Nov. 17, 2010 -- Bemoaning Queen Elizabeth's wealth dropping to a mere $695,000,000 CNBC-TV's David Faber wondered aloud if the Monarchy had been depleting assets like "sort of Sir Robin of Locksley." This started me thinking about the U.S. political neophytes who try to explain economic realities in terms of both the direct, and inverse aspects of Robin Hood: The problem is that both polarities are simplistic and fail to address the very real needs and responsibilities of both citizens and government in a democracy.

    It took 19 months, but as President Obama addressed the American people tonight on the end of the U.S. combat role in Iraq, it was clear to me that the young Illinois Senator had grown into the job a majority of Americans entrusted to him. The usual suspects of conservative punditry thought he was dull, or disconnected or distracted.

    President Barack Obama came into office with a reputation for being a sharp and canny politician. So why does he keep alienating the people who helped get him elected president in 2008? Obama's main failing is putting bipartisanship ahead of policy.

    16 hrs ago | The Intelligencer

    The Obama administration took unilateral steps Wednesday to cut levels of smog-forming pollution linked to asthma, lung damage and other health problems, making good on one of President Barack Obama's original campaign promises while setting up a fresh confrontation with Republicans and the energy industry. In a long-awaited announcement, the Environmental Protection Agency said it prefers a new, lower threshold for ozone pollution of 65 to 70 parts per billion, but left open the possibility it could enact an even lower standard of 60 parts per billion demanded by environmentalists.

Ginsburg was expected back at work on Monday, but her hospitalization - just three weeks after elections handed Republicans control of the Senate - raised anew the question whether President Barack Obama would be able to appoint a like-minded replacement.

    To recover from their debacle in the midterm elections, Democrats have seized on two questionable propositions: They lost mainly because of President Obama's unpopularity, and the 2016 presidential election will be more favorable. Across the United States, Democrats ran away from the president, and the electorate this year wasn't the same as during the 2012 presidential campaign: It included three percentage points more white voters, with a corresponding drop in people of color; the number of younger voters fell by a third, while the number of older voters increased by that much.
