Here’s is today’s look at a few articles and blog posts of note from around the web:

  • When California-based health insurer Anthem Blue Cross raised premiums by up to 39 percent, Democrats pounced. The Los Angeles Times explains how the premium hikes may have helped a derailed health care bill get back on track. (The Los Angeles Times)
  • New polling shows that Democrats have a lot to gain if they actually manage to pass a health care reform bill. (National Journal)
  • Sen. John Kerry [D, MA] says that a senate climate change bill is still a possibility, though it might not contain a cap-and-trade mechanism to limit carbon emissions. (The Hill)
  • E.J. Dionne says Republicans should be just as concerned as Democrats about the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. (The Washington Post)
