I got caught up on some of my Atlantic reading while we were on vacation last month. These articles really impressed me:
How American Health Care Killed My Father: Excellent summary of the problems with American health care and how it won't be fixed by the current proposals. Offers a way that the system could work better, and I think it would work - if it could ever get passed into law (doubtful)!
The Founders' Great Mistake: Problems with the way the Constitution defines the president's powers and how to fix it.
