News on health, the environment, and other green topics from our other blogs.

Right to Sue: Republicans are trying to reduce malpractice suits, just as report shows more medical mistakes.

Flip-Flop: First Republicans hype “death panels”, now they want to ration care.

Feeling the Burn: Under Paul Ryan’s budget, the elderly and poor would pay more health care costs.

Poll Says: Medicaid might be more popular than some would-be reformers think.

Down South: Florida’s not okay with the word “uterus” but they’re fine with mandatory ultrasounds.

On Accident: Louisiana oil refineries have 10 accidents, nearly every week.

Show Down: GOP reps say they can’t compromise on abortion, even if it means shutting the government down.

Future Health: Is it realistic to think health care costs will continue expanding ad infinitum?

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
