Obamacare Repeal Would Swell The Deficit Even Using GOP’s New Math, Budget Office Says

There is no escaping the simple fact that the Republican Party doesn’t want health care coverage to ever be considered a right. It shouldn’t be surprising, they have never considered Social Security to be a right either, the notion that every retiree should have the right to dignity in their golden years or that Medicare […]

Jeb Bush: ‘The Climate Is Changing’ But We Don’t Know Who’s To Blame

Jeb Bush and the other republican candidates may have made some progress by acknowledging that climate change is a reality, however it is so late in the game, we don’t have the luxury of time, we have to act now. What I can’t wrap my mind around is how can the Republican Party ignore a […]

Elizabeth Warren: The Tuition Is Too Damn High

I agree with Senator Warren, the tuition is too damn high, however we need to not only invest in our students by having low cost higher education, but we also need to uncover the many reasons that lie behind the 300 percent increase of college tuition across the board. We need to investigate why universities […]

House GOP Proposal Axes Family Planning Program

The Republican Party argues non-stop that government needs to stay out of an individual’s life, but their rhetoric only applies to a specific demographic, if one happens to be female, the Republican Party finds many ways to insert control in our reproductive choices  with or without federal funding, because withholding federal dollars is just as […]

Americans Aren’t Paying Attention To That Huge Obamacare Supreme Court Case

Elizabeth Warren Explains Obama’s Trade Troubles

I trust what Elizabeth Warren says on all matters, particularly when it involves trade and finance, she is exceptionally intelligent and has integrity, when she joins Bernie Sanders, another lawmaker I deeply admire, I know that what they are either promoting or critiquing is worth listening and following their lead. If Hillary Clinton had really […]

U.S. Poised To Put Heavy Weaponry In East Europe

Do we really need the Pentagon to be throwing proposals and scenarios out into the air for Russia to take in the worst way possible? Our former Presidents and congressional leaders took much time and effort to hammer out treaties in order to save our world from potentially world destroying wars. We owe it to […]

Friday Talking Points — Bernie Sanders Shows Democrats What ‘Family Values’ Should Mean

Whenever I speak about Bernie Sanders, I immediately hear “he will never beat Hillary” I reply “they said those very things about a certain Barack Obama” Back in 2007 I was excited about Hillary Clinton until my son started speaking excitedly about a Senator Obama, who he was going to vote for at his first […]

With Obama’s Trade Agenda In The Balance, Democrats May Mount Last-Minute Revolt

The only parties who want this trade agreement are the multi-nationals,some lawmakers and our President. In this day and age we don’t need free trade agreements, that is code for imposing the lowest wages possible on workers no matter where they live. What we need going forward are Fair Trade agreements especially in this age […]

Jamie Dimon Wants To Mansplain Banking To Elizabeth Warren

Explain to me how J.P Morgan after paying out billions in fines due to illegal activity still employs the same C.E.O? Jamie Dimon might very well be one of those non-violent psychopaths who doesn’t care about rules and regulations, only his own ambition and greed. I wish that we had more lawmakers who were as […]
