I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

A Hope for Republicans in the Battle Against Obamacare

The Wall Street Journal reported today that many uninsured Americans are preferring to pay the penalty rather than enroll during the special enrollment period. A poll done by McKinsey & Co.'s Center for U.S. Health System Reform found that only 12% of uninsured Americans would change their mind and enroll in Obamacare after they were made aware of the penalty. This could be good news for Republicans like Paul Ryan who are trying to create a GOP-friendly health care alternative to Obamacare. If uninsured Americans are not enrolling, then it will be easier politically for the Republicans to replace Obamacare.
