The next time your right-wing family member or former high school classmate posts a status update or tweet about how taxing the rich or increasing workers' wages kills jobs and makes businesses leave the state, I want you to send them this article....
The NFL players’ union has come out against Wisconsin’s right-to-work legislation on Tuesday and went after Gov. Scott Walker in a statement to the press. “The NFL Players Association stands together with the working families of Wisconsin and organized labor in their fight against current attacks against their right to stand together...
Some people may errantly conclude that Republicans, as typical conservatives, are so set in their ways they are naturally unwilling to change, but although that is a very accurate conclusion, it is not the case when it comes to the nation's deficit.
A debate is underway about how the United States should tax foreign-source, corporate income. Currently, the United States allows domestic corporations to defer tax on the earnings of their foreign subsidiaries and also gives credits for foreign taxes paid, while most other developed countries exempt the active earnings of their multinational corporations' foreign subsidiaries from domestic tax.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said on Sunday the Republican Party needs to be more than the Party of No. “The GOP, to earn the right to be a governing party, we can’t just be the Party of No, we have to be the Party of Solutions, not only repeal but also replace Obamacare. We need to offer detailed plans for energy independence, manufacturing...
“The American people deserve a political system that is fair, transparent, and accountable. This legislation would help do that by ensuring that people know who is bankrolling the ads designed to influence their votes. I urge my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to support this legislation – if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear from the DISCLOSE Act.” - Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD)
It's time to get the freeloaders, bribe-takers and inside traders in #Congress out of Uncle Sam's wallet. This is a good start.
John Boehner's decision to invite a foreign head of government to address Congress without first consulting the sitting president has no precedent in U.S. history. For a simple reason: Its unconstitutional.
Lobbyists and trade groups have pumped huge sums into the coffers of super PACs and nonprofits connected to Speaker John Boehner, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ever since the Citizens United decision. (P...
it is worth taking stock of the current President for two specific reasons. First, what Barack Obama accomplished that will cement his place in history as one of the country's greatest Presidents, including his greatest accomplishment of all.
Because Obama was elected president, Republican politicians across the nation have devoted their efforts to undermining him and bringing misery to honest, hard-working and law-abiding voters. The GOP leadership shows no shame in their disloyalty, and no interest in making our great nation the best it can be. They are pitiful indeed.
For campaign finance reformers and ethics watchdogs, Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL) is the gift that keeps on giving. Last week, the Washington Post reported that Rep. Schock recently finished an extravagant renovation of his House office, modeling it after the hit PBS show “Downton Abbey.” The office’s new look comes replete with gold sconces, fancy mirrors and a crystal chandelier.
Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) blocked a Senate resolution that would have simply stated that climate change is real, citing various reasons and conspiracies. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) provided a thorough debunking.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s strategy of blocking a vote on President Barack Obama’s attorney general nominee until the White House relents on immigration executive actions ran into a brick wall Wednesday: his own GOP colleagues. Republican senators dismissed Cruz’s proposal for denying Loretta Lynch a confirmation vote in the Judiciary...
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) today introduced far-reaching legislation to rebuild America’s crumbling network of roads, bridges and transit systems and other infrastructure projects. The five-year plan would invest $1 trillion and create or maintain at least 13 million decent-paying jobs, said Sanders, the Senate Budget Committee ranking member.
I stands for Infrastructure: The guaranteed job creator ignored by the GOP leadership. It also stands for independent: The way many citizens will vote if Senator Sanders runs for president in 2016. Go Bernie! :-)
