Gorsuch on Labor: A Soulless Man Cannot Serve Justice

ALEC’s Push for a Constitutional Convention Reaches Wisconsin

A constitutional convention makes for a snappy hashtag, #ConCon. But, as GOP leaders in Idaho recently discovered, it is an impractical idea that could result in a "runaway" convention that dangerously rewrites the U.S. Constitution.

America Can’t Afford Another Gorsuch in Government

Neil Gorsuch is not the first in his family to seek high office. As a teen he watched his mother, former EPA chief Anne Gorsuch, as she oversaw the mishandling of funds and withheld evidence from Congress. He later condoned these actions.

Democrats Should Focus More on Jobs, Less on Russia

Democrats must confront the moral horrors of Trump's policies head-on: jobs, healthcare, civil rights and the Supreme Court are all under attack. We must defend these first, even if there's a 'smell of treason' in the air.

Alaska, Montana & Indian Health Benefits Under Fire

The story of Alaska and Montana is not front and center in the health-care debate in the House, but it should be. Both states get a raw deal under the GOP's plan, and Montana doesn't even get a vote.

GOP Health Bill Endangers the Lives of Trans People

Trans people may lose health care under the GOP, just because they are trans. We need to fight for what we all deserve: health care in which no one fears dying because we don’t have the resources or access to stay alive.

Republican Budget Endangers Americans at Work and Home

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.

We Must Filibuster Gorsuch’s Federalist Society Agenda

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.

Five Reasons Moderate Democrats Should Oppose Neil Gorsuch

Nobody’s suggesting Democrats should behave like Republicans. But it’s no longer “moderate” to pretend the rules haven’t changed. In today’s world, a vote for Gorsuch is a vote for extremism over moderation.

The Return of the Railroad Robber Baron

If you don’t pay me $230 million, the new CEO at railroad giant CSX warns, I’ll walk away, and let your workers keep their jobs. He means it. At his previous CEO stop, Hunter Harrison cut another railroad's workforce by 34 percent.

‘America First’ Budget Is Unworthy of Our Nation

Donald Trump's budget blueprint aims to dazzle, but its hardness of heart is unworthy of the American people. Our country's great leaders of the past would hardly recognize it as American at all.

What DeVos Means When She Says ‘Public Schools’

DeVos has called public schools a “dead end,” but now as Secretary of Education, she’s all for them. Or so she says. But it's likely what DeVos means by "public schools" is different from what you and I think.
