Other View: Congress, Trump must now fix Obamacare
Senate Republicans' efforts to kill the Affordable Care Act collapsed suddenly this week after seven years of criticism. The defection of several moderates signaled the end. Saying it's wrong to roll back the law before enacting a good replacement plan, West Virginia Sen. Shelley...

Other View: Credit Minnesotans for peaceful response to verdict
Fortunately, a series of emotional protests in the Twin Cities last weekend were mostly peaceful. Protesters, law enforcement authorities, and other members of the community should be commended for their handling of the demonstrations in the wake of the trial of Jeronimo Yanez.

Other View: Wonder Woman saves the day, crushes stereotypes
Males of the species are hereby thanked for their contributions to human civilization, but continued lapses of judgment (World War I, anybody?) confirm their lack of leadership ability. Women are better equipped to rule because women are more caring than men. Women are tougher than...

Not learning from our errors ... House Republicans repeat mistake of Obamacare
In 2010, after a Democratic-controlled Congress passed and President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act, Republicans denounced what came to be known as Obamacare with critiques that were often borne out. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., for one, long had on his website a statement...

Not learning from our errors ... Debunked vaccine fear taking toll on Minnesota
Repeating and resurrecting debunked information doesn't make it suddenly become true. An outbreak of misleading information, however, is taking its toll on children in Minnesota, especially those of Somali descent. An uptick in measles cases is occurring in Minnesota specifically...

Other View: Paris climate agreement still matters
Donald Trump has been president for only three months and already he has given up, reversed course, or been stymied on a wide range of campaign promises. Given how awful some of those ideas were — ending Obamacare, declaring China a currency manipulator, ordering a blanket federal...

Statewide View: Winning the drug war? We’re getting it all wrong with opioid-addiction policies

Other View: Curb cell use while driving
This should be a no-brainer. A bipartisan plan to further restrict handheld cell-phone use while driving should quickly win legislative approval this session in Minnesota. Far too many motorists and others are killed or injured on roads and highways by distracted driving — a...

Other View: Real ID bills deserve passage
Twelve years ago federal law created the enhanced state ID card known as Real ID. The idea was developed after the 9/11 tragedy and is intended to make people more secure by requiring more stringent proof of identification before being issued a card.
