A Victory for Problem Solving Policy

Rachel Maddow points out the role of the Affordable Care
Act in solving the problem of America's terrible health
care system, and talks with Dahlia Lithwick, senior
editor and legal correspondent for Slate, about the
bigger picture of Thursday's Supreme Court ruling
upholding the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate.

The Supreme Court on Obamacare -- CNN & Fox News Report

The Supreme Court rules on the Affordable Care Act, and
CNN races with Fox News to see which news organization
will be the first to report the great decision.

The Partisans: BP Voices From the Gulf

Seen the original BP ads? For more of the most cookie-
begging ad campaign in the history of cookies:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Q2tjWBIXEc Or, oooh,
this one is just the worst:

Because corporations are people, or display people-like
qualities. And sometimes they need a pat on the back. Or
a hug. Or permission to expand offshore drilling. So BP
has introduced Voices From The Gulf!

So, BP has chosen to treat the genuine badassery of
people trying to eke out a living in the midst of the
shitstorm they created as...a branding opportunity.
Thanks BP! We get that you're still in the Gulf, what
would it take for you to get the fuck out and take all
that oil and Corexit with you? Published by

What's the Best Policy for Economic Growth?

Delegates at the British Trade Union Congress' After
Austerity conference, such as Ha-Joon Chang, Duncan
Weldon, Stefan Stern, Dave Powell and Kathy Dyson,
suggest ways the Treasury could promote growth in the
stagnant British economy. Ideas include making banks
lend to businesses, investment in construction and
transport infrastructure and cutting the rate of the
Value Added Tax.
