It highlights an important poll showing the perspective on Iraq and Afghanistan wars from those who have seen them firsthand - recent veterans. Veterans' perspectives as a group are rarely shared and these findings deserve to be more widely known. The story is slightly flawed by the second paragraph ("the findings pose a dilemma for the Obama administration and Congress..."), which is unsupported by any evidence. It seems to be a combination of option and speculation rather than fact.

Highlights a significant trend and provides context and implications. Could have used more background explaining how the food stamp program works (eligibility requirements, restrictions on use, etc.) and some more statisticially or numerically supported analysis to balance out the anecdotes and individual quotes.

The individual mandate (requiring every American to obtain health insurance) combined with lack of a real public option would effectively be an enormous subsidy to the insurance industry at the expense of the public. There is simply no rational argument to be made that a public option would somehow undermine the workings of the free market when the individual mandate is handing insurers a captive market.

Interesting topic but too dependent on a few anecdotes - could have used a broader look at mothers in different situations and more data on family finances.
