Gorsuch on Labor: A Soulless Man Cannot Serve Justice

The anger public school advocates have for Trump's proposed education budget cuts is well-deserved. But the target for their anger should not be just the extent of the cuts but also how the cuts are being pitched to the public.

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.
