    The tax cut debate may be nearing an end…and it looks like progressives are going to get screwed. Over the weekend – Vice President Joe Biden met with top Democrats in the House of Representatives to discuss a way forward on a tax cut compromise with the Republicans. While much of the focus has been on the Senate - and whether or not they can secure 60 votes to pass tax cuts legislation – the real test will be getting enough progr

    You need to know this. After Amazon kicked Wikileaks off their servers last week – thanks in large part to pressure from US Senator Joe Lieberman – the website received another blow over the weekend. PayPal is no longer offering its services – which could affect the whistleblower website’s ability to raise funds through donations.

Students at Columbia University’s school of Inter

    You need to know this about the tax cuts debate. The House yesterday passed legislation to extend the Bush tax cuts for ALL Americans on their first $250,000 of income per year. In response – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is planning on holding two similar votes tomorrow – extending tax cuts for everyone on their first quarter-million in income, but no tax cuts above that. However – all of this – may be for naught. News is emerging from the White House that a deal has been made to extend the Bush tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires in return for an
