    Research Snapshot: Jamila Michener

    The main thing that I wanted to show in the book was that social policies like Medicaid are very different in different places. There are places where as a Medicaid beneficiary you can have access to a generous program that allows you to see doctors, to get your health care needs met, and to do so with relatively little fanfare, and there are other places where it’s very difficult if not impossible to get care and to gain access. And that difference is determined by policy and it means the world for Medicaid beneficiaries, and it also means a lot for how they think about politics and government. One of…

    Does the NSA Violate Your Constitutional Rights? | Learn Liberty

    Many people don’t know what their constitutional freedoms are or why they have them in the first place. They’ve gotten so used to the freedoms they’ve enjoyed as Americans that they haven’t noticed just how rare and fragile they really are. Before America’s founding, the British king George III would issue what were called general warrants, which empowered local authorities to look for wrongdoing anywhere and to use their discretion to find any kind of treasonous behavior, including among the people that would come to be our Founders. But this became such an abuse of dictatorial authority that after the Revolutionary War a prohibition on general warrants was written right…

    The Federalist Papers | Federalist No. 45

    FEDERALIST No. 45. The Alleged Danger From the Powers of the Union to the State Governments. Considered For the Independent Journal. Saturday, January 26, 1788 MADISON To the People of the State of New York: HAVING shown that no one of the powers transferred to the federal government is unnecessary or improper, the next question to be considered is, whether the whole mass of them will be dangerous to the portion of authority left in the several States. The adversaries to the plan of the convention, instead of considering in the first place what degree of power was absolutely necessary for the purposes of the federal government, have exhausted themselves…
