Sherrod Brown is facing a real challenge this year. Thirty four-year-old Josh Mandel is Ohio’s Treasurer. Mandel was elected in November 2010, and had promised that he would serve a complete term as treasurer. Not surprisingly, he broke his promise and is running against Brown. Brown is a true progressive and fought hard to defeat Ohio Senate Bill 5, which was anti-labor legislation that was sponsored by Republican Governor John Kasich. Sherrod Brown is and will continue to be a reliable progressive vote in the U.S. Senate.

According to a recent Rasmussen poll, Brown is tied with Mandel. Quinnipiac shows Brown with a 10-point lead. Regardless of the poll, this will be a close race. Outside interest groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, are spending millions to defeat Brown. Only one progressive group has come to Brown’s aid. The loss of Sherrod Brown would be a devastating blow to progressives. For ways to help Brown, you can visit http://www.brown.senate.gov/.

What part we are broke do you not understand? We cannot continue to absorb the outrageous labor costs and pension obligation for public workers. In my state, Maryland, we have teachers bleating because they have to pony up and extra 1% to contribute to their salaries. This in a state where have a billion dollar budget deficit--I find the disconnect between government workers and real world hilarious. Evidently to be a card carrying communist, er progressive you have to leave your brain at the door and hail to a mind numbing orthodoxy that leaves no room for dissent.

Project much? Try following the money. If we are "broke" we need to ask those with all the money to be part of "we." To be a "conservative," you have to be anything but and be an idiot as well. Your posts are absurd.

Did Carrier Fleece Both Trump & America?

Donald Trump took a victory lap in Indianapolis yesterday afternoon, where he and Vice President elect Mike Pence officially announced a deal to keep 800 Carrier jobs in Indiana.

That's 200 fewer jobs than the 1,000 jobs that Trump initially said the deal would save, but that's kind of besides the point.
