Put Medicaid On The Ballot. It’ll Win.

Last week, Maine became the first state in the country to expand Medicaid by ballot initiative. By a nearly 20-point margin, quintessentially-purple-state Maine voted overwhelmingly to extend healthcare coverage to up to 89,000 low-income people.

Quick Hit: Dana on Betsy DeVos’ Attack On Student Survivors

Last week, Betsy DeVos announced that she’s rescinding critical Title IX guidance that outlines student survivors’ rights under federal civil rights law. Our very own Dana, along with Feministing alum Alexandra Brodsky, published an important op-ed in the Washington Post raising the question, among others: has DeVos even read the guidance she’s revoking?
