  • Alice in Wonderland is Really About Health Care Reform

    Reprinted with permission from CAIVN: Okay, so the recent Tim Burton blockbuster featuring Johnny Depp may not have had much at all to do with health care reform, and certainly Lewis Carroll didn’t have health care reform on his mind when he wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the original novel upon which the Burton film …

  • Health Care Public Option: Aides believe reconciliation “the path we are going to take.”

    Hat-tip Hotair.com and Reuters: The legislation the White House will post on its website is expected to reflect common ground negotiated over the past several weeks by House and Senate Democratic leaders. Those agreements are likely to be combined as a privileged budget reconciliation bill, which only needs a simple 51-vote majority to pass the …
