March 28, 2012 The job of a White House press secretary is to stay on message no matter how disbelieving the journalists before you.

September 28, 2011 The Affordable Care Act always promised to be a hot button issue in the 2012 presidential campaign. But it promises to loom even larger, now that the Obama administration has asked the Supreme Court to take the case, making very likely a high-court decision in June just months before the general election.
June 2, 2011 Romney's intended message is clear: his health care law was a stream-lined, state-centric solution. The federal law was a monstrosity. Glenn Kessler at the Washington Post's The Fact Checker blog takes a look at Romney's claim about page-length and pretty much eviscerates it.
