We need an independent commission to monitor president’s health

Reforms in how the nation monitors the health of its president are long overdue. President Trump’s unprecedented illness, and the confusion around his diagnosis and the state of his health make it clear that our current system is flawed.

Why widespread COVID-19 testing is crucial to fighting the coronavirus pandemic



Plenty of presidents have gotten sick, and plenty have kept it secret, some even when their illness impaired their ability to govern.

Poll finds support for independent arbiters resolving ‘surprise’ medical bills
