Bridging The Gap
Obama and I took a class about socialism's dark side. Bernie would have learned a lot. Obama and I took a class about socialism's dark side. Bernie would have learned a lot.
In the spring of 1983, when I was a senior at Columbia University, I took a course entitled “The Sociology of Socialist Societies.” Like a lot of young American leftists, I was a bit starry-eyed about socialism. But the class quickly disabused me of that. We read a memoir by Hungarian dissident Miklós Haraszti, whose bosses in a tractor factory fleeced and brutalized him. We also read American ...

Joe Biden would show selfless patriotism by quitting the 2020 Democratic nomination race Joe Biden would show selfless patriotism by quitting the 2020 Democratic nomination race
Dismal results in Iowa and New Hampshire didn’t cause Joe Biden’s presidential campaign to become untenable; they only confirmed it. Many of us who watched him at close range on the trail saw it coming months ago: The former vice president’s campaign isn’t going to work. Biden, who has served his country honorably, must now demonstrate — again — what a truly good man he is. Rather than cling t...

Palestinians can accept a plan for peace or watch the world pass them by Palestinians can accept a plan for peace or watch the world pass them by
On Tuesday President Trump released details of the long-awaited “deal of the century” Mideast peace plan. The 80-page document, the product of an effort led by presidential adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, takes the comatose peace process in a bold new direction. But whether the plan can succeed depends largely on if Palestinians are willing to give peace a chance. The new approach acknowl...

Warren takes on big fights for consumers and wins them. I saw it firsthand: Rich Cordray Warren takes on big fights for consumers and wins them. I saw it firsthand: Rich Cordray
Over the past year, Sen. Elizabeth Warren has cemented her reputation as a thought leader on economic policy and as a champion of big ideas. But often missing from the public discussion is her track record of tackling key problems successfully and leading complex organizations. I saw this firsthand when I worked closely with her at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). After reckless...

Trump and the 'prosperity gospel' sell false promises to credulous evangelical Christians Trump and the 'prosperity gospel' sell false promises to credulous evangelical Christians
President Donald Trump made a speech Friday night at a church known for preaching the “prosperity gospel,” a false doctrine that claims those who give financial support for pastors and churches will become wealthy and healthy. That Trump’s first appeal in his “Evangelicals for Trump” campaign comes from this church, Miami’s King Jesus International Ministry, sends a clear message to evangelical...

On our family coffee table is the book “Phoenix, Now vs. Then.” It compares photos of various local locations now and 40 years ago. My recent experience in China reminded me of that book. I participated in one of the first American cultural exchanges with China 40 years ago. Our host counterparts were ambitious young Chinese leaders who demonstrated an insatiable curiosity about America, both o...

How America went from Barack Obama to Donald Trump in one head-spinning political decade How America went from Barack Obama to Donald Trump in one head-spinning political decade
How did we get from Barack Obama to Donald Trump? The two presidents seem so dissimilar that it’s tempting to conclude they come from separate worlds. But in important ways, Obama set the stage for Trump. To say the two men brought incredibly different approaches to the presidency is a dramatic understatement. Throughout his two terms, Obama governed with a deep respect for government instituti...

White House: We're ready to bring an end to surprise medical bills, is Congress? White House: We're ready to bring an end to surprise medical bills, is Congress?
After weeks of inactivity, lawmakers have returned home for Thanksgiving where they will get hit with another round of ads from the swamp’s special-interest moneymakers who value profits more than patients. They need to listen to Drew Calver’s story and hear how some tried to turn a medical emergency into a financial killing. Earlier this year, President Donald Trump stood with Drew and his wif...

The Republican Party must choose between Donald Trump and the party's fundamental values The Republican Party must choose between Donald Trump and the party's fundamental values
This is the stark political reality: on Thursday not a single House Republican voted for the resolution formalizing the inquiry into the impeachment of Donald Trump. Congressman Justin Amash, who left the GOP this year, reminded his colleagues that Trump will only be in power for a short time, “but excusing his misbehavior will forever tarnish your name.” He appealed to Republicans to step out ...
