Romney hates America?

Romney hates America?

          Does Romney dislike America?     By E.J. Dionne Jr.    The most incisive reaction to Mitt Romney’s disparaging comments about 47 percent of us came from a conservative friend who e-mailed: “If I were you, I’d wonder why Romney hates America so much.” A bit strong, perhaps.

Massacres, more to come

Massacres, more to come

      A tragedy we will not try to avert By Eugene Robinson,  Will we even pretend to do anything to prevent the next mass shooting by a crazed loner? I doubt it. We’ll just add Aurora to the growing list — Columbine, Virginia Tech, Tucson — and wait for the inevitable. When that next atrocity comes, we’ll tell each other we’re shocked and stunned, knowing full well we should be neither. We’ll probe the assailant’s life in search of a motive, ... Full Story

A cornucopia of opinion on Obamacare

A cornucopia of opinion on Obamacare

      Obamacare will help drive down health care costs By Jill R. Horwitz and Helen Levy, Special to CNN (CNN) -- Now that the Supreme Court has upheld the constitutionality of the individual mandate, it's time to focus on what has always been a key goal of health reform: Controlling health care costs.

Romney, a man of falsehoods

Romney, a man of falsehoods

      OPINIONS   Mitt Romney, a man of falsehoods  By Richard Cohen, Published: April 16 Among the attributes I most envy in a public man (or woman) is the ability to lie. If that ability is coupled with no sense of humor, you have the sort of man who can be a successful football coach, a CEO or, when you come right down to it, a presidential candidate. Such a man is Mitt Romney. Time and time again, Romney has been called a liar during ... Full Story

Springtime for Toxics

Springtime for Toxics

          Springtime for Toxics By Paul Krugman Here’s what I wanted for Christmas: something that would make us both healthier and richer. And since I was just making a wish, why not ask that Americans get smarter, too? Surprise: I got my wish, in the form of new Environmental Protection Agency standards on mercury and air toxics for power plants. These rules are long overdue: we were supposed to start regulating mercury more than 20 years ... Full Story

The wealthy’s rewards

The wealthy’s rewards

          The study that shows why Occupy Wall Street struck a nerve   By Eugene Robinson Opinion writer The hard-right conservatives who dominate the Republican Party claim to despise the redistribution of wealth, but secretly they love it — as long as the process involves depriving the poor and middle class to benefit the rich, not the other way around. That is precisely what has been happening, as a jaw-dropping new report by the ... Full Story

Where have all the heroes gone?

Rev. James L. Snyder In celebrating the 10th anniversary of one of the most horrific events in the history of the United States one cannot help but reflect back on the past decade. We have come a long way, but I am wondering if we have gone the right way. My wife and I were thinking about this the other night and she startled me with a question. Most of the time she just startles me, but this time she had substance in the form of a question. "I wonder," she said rather thoughtfully, ... Full Story
