Re: An Icy Hell (Robert Wright & Joel Achenbach)

Re: Puppies Are Awesome (Brian Beutler & Peter Suderman)

This blogpost from Yuval Levin does a good job I think of explaining why conservatives and liberals are speaking past each other on HCR:

Re: Puppies Are Awesome (Brian Beutler & Peter Suderman)
