The Power of Optimism WHILE ONSTAGE AT OUR INAUGURAL TIME 100 Health Summit on Oct. 17, former U.S. President Bill Clinton shared an observation gleaned from attending his high school reunions (he’s only missed one in 55 years): Clinton’s classmates who fared best over the years are the ones who remain optimistic. Optimism—about better outcomes, technological advances and the future of care—is a major theme of this special issue of TIME, devoted to what we as a society can do to seize this incredible moment of possibility in health care. “Our world has never witnessed a time of greater promise for improving human health,” writes Dr. Francis S. Collins, director of the National Institutes of Health for the past decade, in opening this issue. Health is central to what we do at TIME.…

WHAT YOU SAID ABOUT … AMERICA’S FOREVER WAR In the Oct. 21/Oct. 28 cover package about America’s military, Elliot Ackerman made the case for a draft—and many of his fellow veterans agreed. Iraq War vet Mike Busovicki of Canonsburg, Pa., said he’d never supported the idea but now thinks “it’s the only way for Americans to take their military—and our lives—seriously.” Navy vet Bruce Jayne of Saluda, N.C., said those who serve would gain an “appreciation” for people from all walks of life, and vets and civilians alike said the wealthy would particularly benefit from service that would give them experience of challenges faced by those less fortunate, as Del Jordan of Monroeville, N.J., put it. But Tim Ackert of Orlando felt differently. “Keep it a volunteer military,” he wrote, “but…

making the world a healthier place

FOR THE INAUGURAL TIME 100 HEALTH SUMMIT, the prescription was: one former U.S. President; one former U.S. Vice President; three entertainers turned activists; assorted scientists, researchers, physicians, insurers and entrepreneurs; one sculptor; the commissioner of the National Basketball Association; and, finally, heads of the Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institutes of Health and the federal official who administers Medicaid and Medicare, overseeing a budget of $1.3 trillion. The result, which streamed live online on Oct. 17 from New York City, can also be glimpsed in these photos.…

impeachment drains white house power

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP IS SUPPOSED TO be the man who could shoot somebody in the middle of Fifth Avenue without losing any political support. But the threat of impeachment is constraining the President’s power in surprising ways. As defiant witnesses provide damning testimony in the House inquiry, Republicans are increasingly seeking shelter from unrelated scandals. The result—a spreading weakness in the West Wing—has driven increasingly erratic behavior by Trump, according to those close to him inside the White House and outside of government. Examples of Trump’s diminished power aren’t hard to find. A series of government officials have defied the White House’s Oct. 8 edict that the Administration would not comply with the impeachment inquiry. Most damaging so far was the Oct. 22 testimony of acting U.S. Ambassador to Kiev William…

what elijah cummings left unfinished

EARLIER THIS YEAR, WHEN THE LATE REPRESENTATIVE Elijah Cummings was assessing new members for the House Oversight Committee, he met with New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a young politician whom many of his colleagues had dismissed as a showboat. Ocasio-Cortez remembers the elder statesman sizing her up. “He said, ‘I’m not here to play games,’” she told TIME. “‘I’m not here for people who aren’t serious about this work.’” Ocasio-Cortez assured Cummings that she was serious, and he took a chance on her, welcoming the freshman lawmaker to the committee. The interaction stuck in her mind. “The decisions we make [in Congress] are enormous, but they happen so quickly, and it’s easy for people to get lost in that,” she said. “He never did.” In an era defined by vitriol and division, Cummings,…
