Progressives Introduce The People's Budget

Republicans have unveiled their latest austerity budget, but, that's not the only budget that the media should be focusing on. While it's important that we all fight back against the Republicans' proposals to further the destruction of our social safety net, we need to be pushing hard to support the Progressive budget as well.

The Brutal Winter That Wasn’t

It was one of the coldest, harshest winters in history…or was it?

This past weekend, the city of Boston officially set the record for its snowiest winter ever. That city has received a staggering 108.6 inches of snow this winter and it could be seeing even more snow tomorrow, just in time for the start of spring. But Boston wasn’t the only city that faced snowstorm after snowstorm this winter.

Lessons from China About Fighting Oligarchs

If you want an example of a country that’s actually taking action against corporate corruption, look no further than the People’s Republic of China. Seriously, I’m not kidding.

Right-to-work-for-LESS is about MORE than unions!

Last week, the thirty-year war on unions scored another victory, and Wisconsin became the 25th right-to-work-for-LESS state in our country. In addition to being bad news for unions in one more state, that new law has broad social and political implications as well.

Republicans Want to Turn Back the Clock on the Constitution

Tehran Tom Cotton has done it again.

Global warming is about to speed up...

Last year was the hottest year ever recorded, and there's a good chance that this year will be even hotter. In fact, new research from the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory says that the rate of human-caused global warming is going to soar in the next decade.

Is it time to disband the Republican Party?

What’s happened to the Republican Party?

Why Unions Are the Seeds of Democracy

Scott Walker has struck another blow against democracy.

On Monday, the Republican Wisconsin governor signed into law a bill that made Wisconsin the nation’s 25th right-to-work-for-less state. For Badger State workers, this is nothing short of a disaster. Contrary to what you might hear on Fox So-Called News or read in The Wall Street Journal, right-to-work-for-less laws are not a recipe for economic success.

Putting Americans Ahead of Defense Contractor Profits

America is exceptional…when it comes to war profiteering. Ever since the Supreme Court said that defense contractors can buy off politicians left and right, business has been booming for the defense industry.

Talking About Climate Change Banned in Florida?

There’s a common rule of thumb in the news business that if you hear a story that sounds too good or too ridiculously weird to be true, it’s probably from Florida. This is true of stories about politics, it’s true of stories about sports, and it’s most definitely true of stories about crime. But it’s also true of stories about climate policy.

Will the ACA survive SCOTUS?

It's anyone's guess as to whether the Affordable Care Act will survive it's latest challenge. This week, the Supreme Court heard arguments in the case of King v. Burwell.

Our planet's lungs are dying...

Trees are like our planet’s lungs. Every second of every day, they’re absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere, and converting it into energy.

In fact, according to a study by researchers at NASA, each year, tropical rainforests absorb a staggering 1.4 billion metric tons of CO2 from Earth’s atmosphere.

Welcome to the New Corporate Feudalism

Feudalism is back, with a vengeance.

Right now, the Wisconsin legislature is considering a bill that would make Wisconsin the nation’s 25th right-to-work-for-less state. All signs point to this bill becoming law. The state senate passed it by a margin of 17 to 15 last week, and Republican Governor Scott Walker, who supports right-to-work-for-less laws, said he will sign it if it reaches his desk.
