The Monkey Cage

Back when I was finishing my doctorate, George Washington University hired a young professor, John Sides, who soon afterwards created the Monkey Cage which I have featured on this blog.  It has a lot of good insights into the political world which include lots of references to papers with statistical studies that you can actually use in class and other posts that are just very interesting for government teachers. At any rate it has been picked up by the Washington Post and you can find it here.

Here is a recent post arguing that even though Sen. Ted Cruz is getting some benefit for health care even though his wife covers him from a private company.  The Monkey Cage argues that Ms. Cruz' health plan is untaxed income.  Here is another one that looks at what it will take for Democrats to take over the House.
