Wednesday's Washingtons

Where we're wondering whether Marco Rubio will filibuster immigration reform...

Senator Cruz had a non-filibustering filibuster and vowed to speak until he couldn't stand.  Cruz's posturing is most likely about 2016 but I don't think it makes much sense.  I wrote as much, yesterday.

The Affordable Care Act officially rolls out next week.  So, that should be exciting.  This is an invaluable resource for debunking myths about the healthcare law.

Well, we're making progress against fighting AIDS.  That's always good. Who knows?  Maybe those abstinence programs George W. Bush implemented in Africa years ago, are actually working.  Doubtful.

One more reason to allow same sex marriage: married cancer patients fare better than those who are not.

If you haven't heard of the All Players United (APU) movement for NCAA athletes, read about it.  It's an important movement and hopefully catches on with more players.

Is Barack Obama trying to anoint his successor for 2016?  Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have been teaming up a lot lately.

Good news for Jerry Brown: California gets four more weeks to reduce its prison population.  Who would have thought that building one prison a year for twenty years would not be enough to hold all the prisoners?  Or you know, we could focus on modest drug reforms and prison reforms.
