Today’s OpEds: Repealing The Health Law, Native American Health, H1N1 Lessons
Crony Capitalism In The Heart Of The Health Care Bill The Christian Science Monitor
[Alan Greenspan's] actions caused American public anger to build up so much and eventually boil over - in such a way that even a bill this expensive was made possible to pass despite the country's dire financial straits (Rocky Vega, 4/12).
Are Republicans Losing Their Nerve On Repeal? The Washington Post
Republicans need to recognize how weak the Democrats' hand really is. First, most of the benefits in the bill don't kick in until 2014 -- three election cycles from now. The charge that Republicans are "taking away your benefits" will hardly ring true for Americans who don't yet enjoy those benefits (Marc Thiessen, 4/13).

If Obamacare covers the euthanasia of conservatives, then it must surely be the aim of the GOP to repeal it. Replacing or reforming it would be fine, too, provided that what emerges is something very different from a state-financed and state-run health-care system (Adam Hume, "the pseudonym of a European writer on politics and health care," 4/13).

But like the IMF, if enough people signed on, it could help to counter the lies and misinformation circulating about health reform (Linda Bergthold, 4/12).
Why Health-Care Reform Legislation Really Is Bad The (North Penn, Pa.) Reporter
For example, didn't Obama say he wanted the cost of health insurance to go down? Instead, costs will go up because the Democrats wanted to be so good to us (Kenneth Fody, 4/13).
What We Learned From H1N1's First Year New York Times
While the epidemic never became as deadly as we initially feared, it was not as mild as some experts now believe. What's more, it exposed some serious shortcomings in the world's public health response (Richard Wenzel, 4/12).
