    Health care costs in the U.S. are some 18 percent of GNP, nearly double what other rich countries spend. We read of drug therapies that cost $100,000 a year or more, and of drug price increases that are 6 times the rate of inflation, on average, and often much more when mergers reduce competition in the industry. Is this a major driver of excessive health care costs?

    There are an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States, and the question of what to do with them has sparked years of fierce debate, but no significant action. Should we give undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship?

    It is alleged that the practice of gerrymandering — dividing election districts into units to favor a particular group — subverts democracy by making congressional districts “safe” for one party or the other. As a result, only those voting in primaries are in effect choosing our representatives. Has this effect killed the political center, or are there other more important factors at work?

    For many, Obama’s presidency will be defined by its accomplishments — taking out Osama bin Laden and disengaging from fights in the Middle East that America cannot win. But for others, it has been marked by missteps and retreat — pulling back where action and leadership was needed. Has Obama’s foreign policy been a success?

    Almost everyone can think of something they would like to change in the U.S. Constitution. It is always tempting to invoke Article V to “fix" it, or “restore" it, or “improve" it. But there is a substantial risk to tinkering: many amendments seem to have unintended consequences. Should the states call a convention to amend the Constitution?
