Red Tape: Why bother with lower courts, if health care decision is going to Supreme anyway?

Mixed Bag: New bill is good on renewables, but subsidizes liquid coal too.

Counterintuitive: How a judge’s ruling against mandatory coverage may help it.

In Brief: A brief analysis of judge’s decision against requiring health insurance.

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
