The Republican presidential candidate says we need to cut American wages enough to be "competitive" with China and Mexico. He has even laid out a plan to accomplish this. He may have stopped saying that, but ...
We were promised a bold new vision. What we got instead was, with one or two notable exceptions, a warmed-over version of the House Republicans’ standard-issue voodoo economics.
When Donald Trump says we should keep jobs in the U.S., he means he wants to make jobs in the U.S. just as low-wage as elsewhere. Members of Michigan People's Campaign challenge him on that Monday in Detroit.
The Trump campaign has been a test to see if the Republican Party can still win as an essentially all-white party with a platform rooted in racial grievance. All the evidence says it cannot.
There are only two economists on Donald Trump's economic team. But hedge funds are represented. So are fracking, tobacco, guns and steel. So is the guy who ran Chrysler into the ground before it was rescued by the government.
Donald Trump is running an ad that changes a word in a Hillary Clinton speech to make it sound like she said the opposite of what she actually said. Will people fall for that?
Depending on the outcome, when the history of the 2016 presidential election is written, this will be known as the week the wheels fell off of Donald Trump’s campaign.
Imagine if we were engaged in actual "trade," and American factories had $66 billion more in orders in June. (And another $66 or so billion the following month, and every month.)
Here's what Trump said about wind power on Monday:"The wind kills all your birds. All your birds, killed. You know, the environmentalists never talk about that." Trump has birds on the brain. Who put them there?
Republican support poses a dangerous temptation for Clinton. She may see it as a mandate to form something like a unity government with Republicans, a call to tack right toward the failed "centrism" and "bipartisanship" of the past.
Donald Trump has not sown the seeds of anger and hatred so much as he has reaped their fruits in a bumper crop. Their roots go very deep, and they will blossom anew in the wake of a Trump defeat.
The Center for Media and Democracy revealed at AARP is a paying member of ALEC, an organization dedicated to, among so many other things, privatizing Social Security and Medicare. Just wow.
Donald Trump’s brain. It’s an unusual instrument, and a frightening one, even in the best of circumstances. Now someone has “put a bird on it”– a lot of them, […]
After Trump's litany of irresponsible statements, including questioning the legitimacy of the election and considering using nuclear weapons, if Republican leaders don't unendorse Trump, their names will go down in infamy.
Hillary Clinton could help kill TPP by demanding the President Obama withdraw TPP from any possibility of consideration in the "lame duck" session of Congress.
The Green Energy Revolution is coming. The only question is: what kind of revolution it will be? As our economy transitions away from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources like wind and solar we have a choice to make...
Like a slug in the nation’s political “garden,” Donald Trump leaves destruction in his wake, and a trail of slime that we will have to contend with long after he’s slithered off the scene.
Donald Trump says he would borrow the money for infrastructure by selling US Treasury bonds. That is exactly what the US government — and every other government — does, and has done, to fund infrastructure maintenance and modernization.
The newly formed People's Action takes up a challenge framed by Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza: to vote for the terrain that will give progressives the best opportunity to win long-term victories.
If Trump is more associated with populism than Clinton, and then loses decisively in November, populism could be tainted by Trumpism, weakening the left’s leverage over Clinton.
Lobbyists for America’s grandest fortunes may want to raise their rates. Capitol Hill is getting a gadfly who can really sting – the man who exposed the "carried interest" loophole.
A huge number of high school educated white men don’t go to Trump rallies. They aren’t flag waving bigots. These are guys who only carry guns when hunting. They’re angry, all right. They’re angry at being associated with Donald Trump.
Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are talking about increased spending on public infrastructure. Are the plans real? Will our obstructive Congress allow either candidate's plans happen?
Donald Trump’s response to a well deserved rebuke form the parents of a Muslim-American war hero should lead Republicans to ask whether their candidate has, at long last, no sense of decency.
The major issue the public is reacting to isn’t terrorism or racism. It’s the rigging of our economy – the increasingly tight nexus between wealth and political power.
Hillary Clinton's agenda should resonate with voters. But Americans are for good reason in a skeptical mood. Democrats will need to convince voters they really mean it – especially if the bad news keeps coming.
While Hillary Clinton was shattering that glass ceiling, Donald Trump pulled off a first of his own: the first presidential candidate to invite a cyber attack against the United States.
Senate cafeteria workers this week won more than $1 million in wages they were cheated out of by a contractor. Their fight shows why we have to oppose privatizing public services and support a "model employer" executive order.
Rev. William Barber's speech at the closing night of the Democratic National Convention called on delegates to be "moral defibrillators" for a nation with a "heart problem." And he electrified the convention.
Clinton is not selling herself as an agent of abrupt change. She is positioning herself as a conduit of steady change, in contrast to, Donald Trump, who might bring change like a tornado, leveling all in its wake.
Hillary Clinton stepped into history last night, accepting the presidential nomination of the Democratic Party. She reminded Democrats that they were the "party of working people" and set up the choice that voters will face this fall.
Donald Trump seriously thinks he can woo LGBT voters with empty rhetoric about “protecting” us from terrorist attacks. But who’s going to protect us from his religious extremist friends, and his party’s anti-LGBT platform?
Republicans, trapped in denial, wondering how they fell so far, might look toward the Democratic National Convention's capacity to manage the intra-party tension.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) is proposing new rules regulating debt collection agencies. It's about time the government starting acting like a government again.
A group of Bernie Sanders delegates talk in Philadelphia about what they plan to do after the Democratic convention to "keep the Bern," building progressive power in their communities.
Democrats rolled out the big guns last night – Biden, Kaine, Bloomberg, Obama. They posed the choice: experience vs. risk, most qualified vs. least qualified, optimism vs. pessimism. And Obama "passed the baton" to Hillary Clinton.
Clinton says she opposes the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Clinton friend and insider Terry McAuliffe said she will pivot to supporting it after the election. Trump jumped on that, saying Clinton will "betray" us. What does it all mean?
The Mothers of the Movement brought the audience at the Democratic National Convention to its feet, and hushed it with the staggering losses that brought them there. It was one of the most powerful moments of the convention.
In reviewing Democratic vice presidential nominee Tim Kaine’s education policy chops, what’s in his record may not be as important as what isn’t: the current education 'reform' establishment’s policy checklist.
Bill Clinton provided a masterful portrait of Hillary Clinton last night at the Democratic Convention, making the case that she is the "change maker" that Americans are looking for – an image marred only by close allies going off-script.
