Bridging The Gap
America owes a debt to its veterans, and so far, we haven't paid up America owes a debt to its veterans, and so far, we haven't paid up
My veteran brother died of an overdose at prescribed levels. To truly demonstrate our gratitude, we must ensure our vets are taken care of domestically. When my younger brother, Kirk, came home from Afghanistan several years ago, his pain was both physical and mental. He had fallen from a helicopter, injuring his back, and he had post-traumatic stress disorder. At a medical appointment on Sept....

Break up the Google-Facebook-Amazon web monopoly Break up the Google-Facebook-Amazon web monopoly
Policy makers are beginning a long overdue reappraisal of the giant website and social media companies (“edge” providers) that dominate the Internet today — or as they might have been called a century ago, "The Web Trust." Facebook spread lies for money, grossly distorting our elections. Google has been hit with a whopping $2.7 billion dollar fine in Europe for biasing its search results towa...

We're studying how to restore trust in U.S. democracy. Stay tuned. We're studying how to restore trust in U.S. democracy. Stay tuned.
Our new commission will examine the causes and consequences of the nation's crippling cynicism, what should be done and how journalism can help. Thriving democracies require a strong base of both trust and distrust of government. To govern effectively, leaders need citizens to trust that they are honest and competent. To earn that trust, governments need to be open and accountable to citizens, ...

The Supreme Court needs to fix the gerrymandering problem The Supreme Court needs to fix the gerrymandering problem
Voters should select their representatives, not the other way around. On Tuesday morning, the Supreme Court will consider the limits of partisan gerrymandering, where politicians essentially choose their constituents by manipulating the electoral maps. The case, from Wisconsin, could become the biggest and most significant election law case in years and will affect elections across the country ...

Health care fail: GOP caves to ignorant voters who want revenge, not facts Health care fail: GOP caves to ignorant voters who want revenge, not facts
When Americans think of public policy in terms of scoring wins or losses, dumpster fires like the last two Obamacare repeal efforts are inevitable. Once again, a Republican effort to repeal (or replace, or modify, or mangle) the Affordable Care Act has failed. The proposed bill by senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy, rushed along in order to take advantage of a procedural loophole that wou...

DACA: I'm undocumented and I am part of what makes America great. DACA: I'm undocumented and I am part of what makes America great.
Dear President Trump: My name is Karlita and I'm an undocumented immigrant, or so people say. Because of this, it might surprise you to hear that you’ve actually inspired me. Before your campaign, I tried to ignore my status, or lack thereof. "Blend in, pretend it doesn't exist," I would tell myself. I know it’s shocking for some to realize, but being undocumented has its downsides, inclu...

Trump Isn’t a Threat to Our Democracy. Hysteria Is. Trump Isn’t a Threat to Our Democracy. Hysteria Is.
Since Donald Trump’s election, the United States has been gripped by tyrannophobia. Conspiracies against democracy are everywhere; truth is under siege; totalitarianism is making a comeback; “resistance” is the last refuge of citizens. Tyrannophobia, the belief that the overwhelmingly important political issue is the threat to our liberal freedoms and institutions, has always been a powerful fo...

What should GOP do next on health care? How about getting advice from Hillary Clinton What should GOP do next on health care? How about getting advice from Hillary Clinton
Once the GOP gets tired of the circular firing squad over its failure to pass an ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill, it might want to take a look at how Hillary Clinton handled a similarly embarrassing health care disaster during her husband's presidency. Despite the fact that Democrats controlled both houses of Congress and the White House in 1993, Clinton couldn't even get her Health Security ...

States keep our elections secure States keep our elections secure
As Georgia’s secretary of state, I have worked tirelessly to ensure our state’s elections are secure, accessible and fair. For years, we have run our elections with little interest from the press. But during last year’s presidential election, everything changed with the news media’s obsession with Russian meddling. Now, we are bombarded with questions about election security from reporters o...

Speed Safety Cameras Near Schools Make Sense Speed Safety Cameras Near Schools Make Sense
There is a bill before the New York State Legislature to expand the number and scope of speed safety cameras in New York City school zones and, amazingly, it faces considerable opposition. How could an initiative that would protect more than a million New York City students fail to be a slam dunk? According to Albany politicians, constituents complain that speed safety cameras just aren’t fair....
