GOP Has Built-in Advantage In Fight For The House

I have to give the Republican Party props for long term planning; they are following their overall strategy that was put in place 1970 when a memo written by Supreme Court Justice Lewis Powell and presented to the Chamber of Commerce called for the creation of right wing think tanks and to build a strong […]

Bill Clinton Has An Obamacare Message For Democrats: Don’t Run Away From It

Actually I would advise all elected democrats, progressives and even the President himself to not only take former President Clinton’s advice to heart, but more importantly, they should tune into Bill Maher’s New Rules about winning the message war and owning the Affordable Care Act. I promise these democrat and progressive lawmakers that if they […]

GOP Senate Candidate Explains Why The Uninsured Are Less ‘Educated,’ ‘Sophisticated’

I disagree with his notion that the Affordable Care Act is one size fits all, every state has the flexibility to implement the law according to how they see fit, as long as they adhere to the basic principles; Vermont is seeking to go single payer and I am very excited to see how that […]

House GOP Says It’s Too Late To Pass An Unemployment Extension

Boehner is not telling the truth, if he wanted to, he would make it work. He found a way to get a vote done when the Medicare doctors were waiting to have their reimbursements cuts replaced or offset by cuts elsewhere, he got Senator Wyden on the phone to see how his bill was shaping […]

Christie Report Finds A Culprit: A Scorned, ‘Emotional’ Woman

REALLY?! The results of the taxpayer funded investigation performed by Governor Christie’s own legal team exonerate him by placing all the blame on an emotional woman who was dealing with a break up. They expect everyone to believe that the Governor’s deputy Chief of Staff would or even could independently order the closing of three […]

Christie Lawyers Release Internal Report On Bridgegate

This is quite rich, the taxpayers paid to find out that their Governor is without responsibility in the misuse of power over public egress to a vital bridge linking many people to their places of employment and homes. This put the visual of Governor Christie waving a traffic flag directing his constituents and others to […]

Obama: Romney Was Wrong On Russia, Still Is

Why does it seem to me that Romney and his fellow conservatives are courting more enemies instead of trying to lessen the number that we have? I know that there has been a meme regarding the love(lust)/hate that the conservatives have towards Putin; Jon Stewart has had a fun time with it. But seriously, viewing […]

Envy and Jealousy? Gag Me With a Silver Spoon

These billionaires are reacting poorly because they know that the game is rigged all in their favor and the consequences are similar to a ticking time bomb, something will trigger an explosion and they aren’t sure what it is. The people are restless or they would be, if they weren’t exhausted from trying to figure […]

The Real Truth About Obamacare

I don’t think that we are going to get any serious answers about the overall effect of the Affordable Care Act for at least two years and even then, not every state has embraced the Medicaid expansion, the launch and support of the health exchanges haven’t been done on an equal scale, and the health […]

Koch Brothers Obamacare Ads: New Ones Suggest The Law Is Working

The Koch brothers alone are an excellent reason as to why we must overturn the Citizens’ United ruling. If they want to be in government, then campaign for an elected position; do not use your taxpayer subsidized oil and gas money to pay off congressmen, direct your ALEC colleagues and run your SuperPac campaign organizations […]
