Problem With Joe: Harry Reid has a Joe Lieberman problem that changes daily.

Week One: A breakdown of Copenhagen’s first week and biggest moments so far.

Public Option RIP: Medicare buy-in and public option are officially dead, says Kevin Drum.

Best Buy: A Medicare buy-in would crash an already fiscally troubled program.

Flip-Flops: Sen. Lieberman says he’ll veto anything with a public option or buy-in.

Rx Poverty: Poor kids are often given meds instead of therapy.

A BETTER WAY TO DO THIS?

We have an ambitious $350,000 online fundraising goal this month and we can't afford to come up short. But when a reader recently asked how being a nonprofit makes Mother Jones different from other news organizations, we realized we needed to lay this out better: Because "in absolutely every way" is essentially the answer.

So we tried to explain why your year-end donations are so essential, and we'd like your help refining our pitch about what make Mother Jones valuable and worth reading to you.

We'd also like your support of our journalism with a year-end donation if you can right now—all online gifts will be doubled until we hit our $350,000 goal thanks to an incredibly generous donor's matching gift pledge.
