Thanks To Democrats, Medicaid Expansion Is Coming To Louisiana

For the past couple of years, many people here in Louisiana have fought to get Medicaid expansion for the hundreds of thousands of folks who desperately needed it. Bobby Jindal turned down the federal funding in hopes that it would score political points with the GOP base for his ultimately doomed presidential campaign. Political experts […]

The Numbers Don’t Lie: Democrats Win When They Show Up To Vote

This past Election Day, Democrats didn’t show up in some states and in Kentucky, a Tea Party fanatic won the governor’s race against the moderate Attorney General Jack Conway. This was a disturbing setback, and it was repeated in local elections like in Houston where an LGBT protection ordinance was struck down by voters. Houston […]

Latest 2016 Speculation Could Completely Shake Up the Democratic Party

As most people who follow me are aware, I’m a Hillary Clinton supporter. I like Bernie Sanders and I certainly don’t believe Clinton is a flawless candidate, but I do actually like her and I think she gives Democrats their best chance to keep Republicans out of the White House in 2016. Honestly, that should […]

Bernie Sanders Could Be Setting Up a Future Presidential Run by Elizabeth Warren

One thing I try to always encourage people to do (especially as it relates to politics) is to analyze the bigger picture. Almost nothing in politics is organic; there’s almost always some sort of “end game” – even when it comes to Bernie Sanders. As much as many people like him (myself included), I like […]

Watch Elizabeth Warren Crush the Senate Republicans Trying to Defund Planned Parenthood (Video)

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is, without a doubt, my favorite politician. Not only does she seem like the most genuine person in Washington, but she’s managed to bring about massive changes to the Democratic party that no other politician has really ever been able to do – and she did it almost immediately upon entering office. That’s what […]

Ready for Warren Is Now Ready To Fight And Has Endorsed Bernie Sanders

For the longest time, a lot of people who were not thrilled about a Hillary Clinton candidacy were pleading with Senator Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016. Some went so far as to start the Ready for Warren super PAC in order to try to convince her to get into the race, something […]

New Hampshire Poll Shows Bernie Sanders Quickly Closing In On Hillary Clinton

The first contests of the 2016 Democratic primaries are still over 7 months away, but Hillary Clinton’s inevitability is suddenly looking not quite so inevitable after all. While the Republican primary field resembles a gathering of political has-beens and religious snake oil salesmen, the Democrats have just 4 candidates in the race so far, with […]

Elizabeth Warren Shreds Clueless Chase CEO For Saying She Doesn’t ‘Understand’ Wall Street

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has based a large part of her time in the Senate on opposing big banks and Wall Street in general. Her belief, like millions of Americans all across this country, is that there are far too many crooks making themselves rich by screwing over the American people. She has been, by […]

For the First Time In A Long Time, I Find Myself Extremely Disappointed In President Obama

I’ll be the first to admit that President Obama isn’t perfect. Then again, who is? History shows us that presidents are most popular during their first few weeks in office, because voters tend to have unrealistic expectations of what they can or cannot do. That’s something that I believe President Obama clearly faced. As our nation’s […]

A New Economic Study Proves Why We Need To Raise The Minimum Wage

If you believe conservative pundits and politicians, you probably believe that the poorest Americans are where they are not because we should raise the minimum wage, but because they’re lazy and don’t want to work. There’s hardly a day that goes by when you don’t hear the talking heads at Fox News parrot the tired […]
