The Republicans have been trying to repeal Obama's signature health care plan ever since it was passed. The House voted roughly 60 times to repeal it, which is nothing more than sheer stupidity.

Although maternal death rates are high in Kenya, there are 18 countries that have even higher death rates. Although the maternal death rate in the United States is a fraction of the death rate in Kenya, it is higher than virtually every other developed country. For a lot of reasons, we should pay a lot more attention to the Nordic countries, since they have better ideas than we do on many topics, including health care.
