We should protect people who are sick. We should let kids drink water. We should make sure schools are safe. We should leave the planet better for future generations. We should invest in education, not stock buybacks. We should be good to each other.

While we await further rulings on this case, it is important that the public is aware that, for the time being, the ACA still remains the law of the land, and the deadline to sign up for coverage during the open enrollment period ends tonight at midnight.

The final deadline to enroll in Obamacare is today. Enrollment is surging. At 8:30 AM web traffic at is at its highest point this week and during this entire Open Enrollment. It's not too late now.

The one thing everyone should know about this Obamacare lawsuit ruling: this is NOT the final word. Obamacare still exists. Open enrollment goes through tomorrow. If you are uninsured and considering enrolling in coverage, you absolutely still should.

Republicans want to gut healthcare. It’s not a talking point, it’s not an exaggeration, it’s not a rhetorical flourish. For ideological reasons, and because many can’t stand that it’s named Obamacare, they are causing millions to feel anxiety and possibly suffer. Shame on them.

BREAKING: A Federal judge in Texas ruled the ACA unconstitutional This will be appealed. It is a highly political ruling in concert with Trump. I will be talking to many and will report back. Follow if interested.

What’s wild about this is Trump traveled with Republicans all over the country in the 2018 election vowing to protect preexisting conditions while his administration — and several of those candidates — were supporting this lawsuit in court.

Immigrant families, especially children, deserve compassion, not fear and suffering. I know because I came to this country when I was seven. That's why I'm in Texas this weekend to conduct oversight over the treatment of detained immigrant children & families at the border.

If you start to post a photo, but decide not to and cancel, Facebook still saves a copy of it. Oh, and for a while, it made those unposted photos and other private images available to 1,500 third-party apps. Surprise!

A Marine just positioned himself outside the West Wing doors, meaning that POTUS got to the Oval today at 11:43 a.m.

An emolument is not only bribery. It’s actually any financial arrangement, including one at “market” rate. The founders didn’t want any entanglements at all, not just the ones that were obviously corrupt. So even a legit business deal is constitutionally prohibited.

One goal I have for 2019 is to get more people talking about the Emoluments Clause and I’m hoping you can help.

We have a President with financial entanglements across the globe. Anyone who covers politics, domestic or foreign policy, should integrate that into their reporting. And just because it’s got a weird and old-timey name - “Emoluments,” doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pay attention.
