If you watched Sunday’s Democratic debate, you learned something interesting about Bernie Sanders: he voted for the Commodities Futures Modernization Act, something Hillary Clinton was all too eager to point out when the two of them got to talking about Wall Street reform.

For more than a year, President Obama has been calling on Congress to pass legislation to guarantee all workers can take time off when they're sick.

Thomas Piketty, the world-famous French economist, has ran the numbers on American income inequality. And, his analysis confirmed what many of us already know – low taxes on the rich have made them much richer, and have left the rest of us trying to catch up.

After 7 years in the White House, President Obama still hasn’t learned his lesson about Republicans.

A dead heat.
