In a win for President Obama, the Supreme Court narrowly upheld today the healthcare law nicknamed "Obamacare. " The decision was a 5-4 vote, with four justices who generally rule more liberally joining Chief JusticeJohn G. Roberts Jr.The Affordable Care Act says that people who don't have health insurance by 2014 will have to pay a tax penalty. "The federal government does not have the power to order people to buy health insurance," Roberts wrote in the majority opinion, but "the federal government does have the power to impose a tax on those without health...

You know what would have been better than Connecticut winning the NCAA tournament the other night? It would have been better - and I say this as a college basketball fan - if Florida, Wisconsin, UConn and Kentucky had taken to the middle of the court Saturday, sat down and refused to play in solidarity with the Northwestern football team's fight to unionize. There was a rumor a few years back that a highly ranked college hoops power was planning to do just this until they got upset in an early round.

Go figure that just as one of the most stressful college basketball seasons crashes to a close with my Buckeyes playing Kansas in the Final Four this week and cross-state rivals Louisville and Kentuckysquaring off in the other game, the Supreme Court would take up the challenge to Obamacare. I'm doing everything I can to not think about the repercussions if the Affordable Care Act is overturned, what it means for our democracy if five to six unelected justices shred the most important piece of social legislation in sixty years that took two landslide elections, countless activists,...

Barack Obama's presidency has largely been defined by crisis. He entered the White House following an unprecedented economic meltdown, and events such as the BP oil spill, Hurricane Sandy and Syria's use of chemical weapons will be mere footnotes in the range of political, economic and natural disasters that have landed on his plate. However, the crisis which has defined his presidency and which will almost certainly come to define at least the next decade of American politics is the crisis within the Republican Party.

Turkey Day nears, and we've all got big, complicated plans that involve drinking with your high school buddies in all your favorite hometown bars, navigating whatever familial crises and complaints that will arise in the space of 72 hours, and where to take a nap after the wine and turkey and potatoes kick in. Also, don't forget, this Friday - Black Friday, as it's known - is a show of solidarity for the first strike by Wal-Mart workers in...

Is it healthy to get circumcised well into your mid-40s? And can not being circumcised cause urinary tract infections?--Anon. Like my first boyfriend, I thank you sir, for putting the fate of your penis in my very unqualified hands. Circumcision is a hotly contested issue among those who have penises (those without prefer to spend their time learning how to grow basil off of fire escapes). Circumcision among adults is even more controversial, the prevailing theory being, "Well, you've had it this far and it's gone OK, right?"

I know that as someone who understands that the Affordable Care Act is a necessary piece of legislation that will need to be expanded and improved upon in the decades to come, I should have been overjoyed that Chief Justice John Roberts joined the majority in upholding its constitutionality. Yet all I'm left thinking is, “Congratulations, you can read and comprehend the basic text of a not-all-that-difficult law document.” I hate to go into my self-righteous, I've-been-saying-this-for-years mode, but here goes:...

Imagine something that made it onto so many dinner tables it was just called "the food," or a fashion brand worn so often it was referred to merely as "the clothes. " The idea underscores the far-reaching impact of "the pill," the hormonal birth control drug that's been around for more than 50 years in something very close to its current form. But events during the last two weeks have again put birth control in the national spotlight, embroiling those on all points of the political spectrum in a debate about women's rights, religious freedom and the role of government in health care.

A former Chicago Rush kicker has settled his wrongful termination claim against the Arena Football League. 26-year-old Orland Park resident Mike Salerno was cut by the Rush in May after suffering a hip flexor injury during a game in Arizona that he claims was misdiagnosed by the team's trainers. "I got hit on a [point after touchdown]," he said. "The way the guy fell, I couldn't really move or get out of the way. I hyperextended the hip flexor muscle. Basically it was like the muscle was pulled farther than it should go. It kind of felt weird.
