So he put the bill before the House GOP and began whipping up votes to back the legislation. A vote was scheduled, but conservatives in the House rebelled, arguing that his legislation didn’t go far enough to satisfy their demands. Lacking the votes, the bill was pulled and Boehner released a statement punting responsibility to the White House. Yes, of course I’m talking about Boehner’s embarrassing and incompetent handling of the border crisis legislation yesterday. But I’m also talking about B

Some of the things being said about SNAP recipients by Republicans to justify their cuts are beyond callous and mean-spirited. I bet they wouldn’t dare tell veterans on food stamps to their faces that they are lazy, undeserving of help and need to embrace a work ethic. No, they will do the next worse thing. On this issue, they will pretend “our veterans” don’t exist.

Ted Cruz, one of the Koch Kids.

87% of people getting food stamps are children, elderly, veterans, and disabled. Sen. Patty Murray: The four-term Democrat from Washington and first female chair of the Senate Budget Committee received food stamps as a teenager. Her father had gotten sick and couldn't run his five-and-dime store on Main Street in Bothell, Wash.

But this election wasn’t a victory for women’s rights, because Republicans—the party that opposes abortion rights and opposes many forms of birth control—gained a lot of power last night. Not only did they take control of the Senate. They also took over a record number of state legislatures. And that’s where they’ve managed to do some of their greatest damage lately.

The participants represented the bulk of the Republicans’ 54-member senatorial majority, vesting their petulant, condescending stunt with the coloration of an institutional foreign policy statement. They are an embarrassment to the Senate and to the nation.

Even for a Republican White House that was badly stumbling through George W. Bush’s sixth year in office, the revelation on April 12, 2007 was shocking. Responding to congressional demands for emails in connection with its investigation into the partisan firing of eight U.S. attorneys, the White House announced that as many as five million emails, covering a two-year span, had been lost.

If you can afford to buy a senator, you don't need a tax break!

Republicans presidential ticket for 2016 Many republicans are in cahoots with foreign leaders and brazenly asked Netanyahu to speak to congress against our Presidents wishes. Republican members of congress are now working to sabotage the current negotiations with Iran! At what point will republican followers wake up?!!

more than 235,000 people had signed a petition asking the Obama administration to pursue federal charges against the senators, accusing them of violating an 18th century law. The petition states: "Forty-seven United States Senators committed a treasonous offense when they decided to violate the Logan Act, a 1799 law which forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments." It concludes: "This is a clear violation of federal law. In attempting to undermine our own nation, th

The propaganda machine is so strong - wow - millions of Americans did not realize they are getting screwed everyday. Three different pieces highlighted how the GOP is grinding just about every sector of the federal government to a halt. And it is doing it through a cynical combination of obstruction, saying no and failing to have viable alternative proposals worthy of national debate. Whatever political gains Republicans achieve in the short-term come at the long-term expense of the country. Tha

That's the Teabag Ignorance we have to contend with.

That will disappoint the history-challenged right-wingers whose patriotic posturing is limited to speaking in their odd pseudo-military lingo, that echolalic Esperanto for fantasy revolutionaries. They don't realize that war is a tactic, not a system of values. And "independence"? Today's "Tea Party" wasn't named for the tea-dumping patriots of Boston, but for some self-entitled commodities traders shrieking "losers!" on cable television. They were sneering at struggling homeowners, mocking midd

Appearing on Neil Cavuto’s Fox News show, Giuliani shared his thoughts on Russia’s invasion and de facto annexation of the Ukrainian province. Rather than blasting Putin for ignoring international law, the sovereignty of an independent neighboring country, and the rights of Ukrainians to decide their country’s future for themselves, Giuliani praised Putin for being what he called “a leader.”

It is no wonder why the Koch brothers always hold their political retreats with their fellow billionaires and multimillionaires in highly secretive sessions, the things they say and the agenda they lay out, while "inspiring" to Mitch McConnell, is repulsive to most Americans. They believe the minimum wage leads to Nazi-ism, Stalinism, Maoism, and suicide bombers. They believe the homeless should be dismissed by telling them to get off their ass. They compare Democrats to the leaders of North Kor
