Maybe Global Warming isn’t so bad after all

Just how serious is global warming?  No matter who you think caused it, man, or some natural cycle, the answer is that global warming presents a threat to our ecosystems and puts millions, if not billions, of people at risk. Floods and storms will get worse, droughts in dry regions will be more severe, entire species could disappear, and cities we have come to know and love may no longer be sustainable in their current locations.

Playing Washington D.C.-style politics in Richmond

Politics in Richmond, the back and forth between the House, the Senate and the Governor, rarely, in fact almost never, involve words like impasse or deadlock. And references to   shutdowns, well, that’s something that happens in dysfunctional Washington D.C. politics, not in Richmond. Or, at least, that’s the way it used to be.

The economics of Medicaid expansion and preventive health

Expanding Medicaid in Virginia shouldn’t be a partisan issue. There are some states where it isn’t; New Hampshire is a good example. In the granite state, the Republican state senate enthusiastically supported Medicaid expansion. With typical New England practicality, they supported it as a matter of common sense and good economics.

Business as usual in Richmond

For most people, whether they follow politics or not, redistricting is one of those topics that has, to borrow a reference from Beatrice Potter’s Peter Rabbit, a “soporific effect.” In other words, it puts them to sleep.

It’s time to raise the minimum wage

America’s minimum wage dates back to the passage of the Fair Labor Standards Act in 1938. The idea behind this New Deal legislation was to set a floor to how low wages could go. It was nothing more than that. At the time, it was hotly debated. Those opposed to it said that it represented too much of an intrusion into the functioning of the domestic economy and if implemented would raise labor costs and force companies to lay off workers.
