The mandatory quarantine rule that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie imposed Friday to combat the spread of Ebola underscores the need to keep politics out of this important public health issue. Policy decisions on Ebola should be based on science, not fear.

Critics of the 2010 Affordable Care Act complain that it doesn’t do much to control the healthcare costs that are becoming unsustainable for families and businesses. In fact, the law does many small things; the latest is the grant program announced last week to teach Medicare and Medicaid doctors new ways to offer higher-quality, better-coordinated, more cost-effective care.

Extremes of power, but not of numbers
Pew Research Center just released data from its year-long look at polarization, a follow-up to the June release of its largest survey ever on American politics.

California leads the way in finding solutions to challenging problems
With Election Day one week from Tuesday, I wanted to take the national pulse from California, where I just spent a few days.
