Trump will face his next test at the ballot box in November....

Coronavirus Shows Capitalism Is a Razor’s Edge

Coronavirus Shows Capitalism Is a Razor’s Edge

My best friend works as a standardized patient, which means she is a practice patient for medical schools to train and test students. One day she’ll play an older woman with a pulmonary embolism, her face stricken with worry, the next someone with depression, limp and listless. Each workday medical students fumble at her bedside, and at her body, some nervous and gentle, others over-confident and brusque, as she guides them through learning their craft. It’s not bad for wage work, with each gig paying somewhere between $16 and $25 an hour, although this doesn’t always cover the time spent...

“I Would Love Medicare for All”: A Nevada Culinary Union Member on Why She Supports Bernie Sanders

The Democrats’ COBRA Proposal Is an Insurance Industry Bailout

The Democrats’ COBRA Proposal Is an Insurance Industry Bailout

We keep handing more money to the very for-profit insurance industry that is failing us.Private insurers’ business models will always depend on jacking up premiums and paying for less care, which explains why both premiums and deductibles have risen substantially since the implementation of the ACA.More than 22 million Americans have filed for unemployment the last four weeks in light of layoffs, business closures and cratered demand associated with the coronavirus pandemic. Such unprecedented job loss would spark social disaster in any circumstance. But it’s particularly catastrophic when...

The Democrats’ Timid COVID-19 Response Does Not Bode Well for the Climate

The Democrats’ Timid COVID-19 Response Does Not Bode Well for the Climate

The Democrats want us to believe they’ll act fast on climate if in power, but they’ve proven themselves slow in a crisis.It’s not enough to simply blame the Republicans with each failure.Democratic Party leaders have repeatedly brushed off urgent calls for radical climate action by declaring that they—the Serious Adults in the Room—should be trusted to fix the situation. Yet their utter failure to rise to the COVID-19 crisis and catch the millions of people in free-fall right now should dispel any notion that current political leadership will save us from the climate crisis—poised to be far...

The Stephen Colbert of The Colbert Report is a sexist, racist, egomaniacal jingoist, whom Stephen Colbert the comic describes as a willfully ignorant idiot. A recent episode of the Report included a bit mocking Dan Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins football team, for setting up a bogus “Original Americans Foundation” in attempt to distract the public from the fact that his team’s name is a racial slur against the aforementioned original Americans. Despite widespread public...
