Trump's budget doesn't make us secure. It slashes and burns protections to our environment, labor and education. Americans sickened by pollution are weak. Workers threatened by explosions on the job are less safe, not more.
Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch shows every sign he supports the Federalist Society's pro-corporate, far-right agenda. Democratic senators must filibuster his nomination, or face primary challenges in their home states.

Medicaid block grants proposed by Republicans will force states to either kick old folks out of nursing homes, or kick poor folks off health insurance. Is this really what Trump voters were hoping for?
The Republicans' plan to overhaul health care cuts programs that help black and brown people to pay for giveaways to the wealthy. People ask if this is accidental or deliberate. Does it matter?
Trump’s first weeks in office have been horrifyingly erratic. But the bipartisan foreign-policy establishment's conventional wisdom is, in many ways, even more disconnected from reality than the president’s tweets.
Both sides in the current education debate assume real progress can't come from schools themselves, but must be imposed by outside folks who aren't professional educators. What if that assumption is wrong?
Jobs may have increased in February, but our challenge as a nation is to create good jobs that provide dignity for all. Senator Sherrod Brown's insightful new report - Working Too Hard for Too Little - shows us how to get there.
Who could be against rules that protect workers from civil rights and labor law violations, having their pay stolen and their health and safety put at risk? Republicans, that's who.
