Republicans Block Veterans Bill Over Planned Parenthood Fight

After the release of the heavily-edited Planned Parenthood videos, Republicans all over have been scrambling to score political points with the right-wing by calling for investigations, as well as for defunding the organization altogether. This hatred for Planned Parenthood is nothing new. For decades, anti-choice activists and conservative politicians have made it a target, sometimes literally. […]

Glenn Beck Blasts The Republican Party: ‘I’m Done With Them’

It’s a very rare day when you’ll see me talk about Glenn Beck, let alone agree with him. After all, the guy was booted from Fox News. If your act is too crazy for Fox, that says a lot about the people you’re trying to attract. That’s right, I said it was an act. Glenn […]

Speaker Boehner Is Wrong: The GOP War On Gay Rights Isn’t Over

Speaker John Boehner yesterday stated that he did not expect House Republicans to take up arms and try to fight the decision of the Supreme Court when they issue their ruling on same-sex marriage later this year. It is believed that that their decision will likely be a close 5-4 vote in favor of extending […]

John Boehner’s Tweet Following Overwhelmingly Positive Jobs Report Proves He Hates Job Creation

As most people know, every month the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases a new jobs report detailing what our current unemployment rate sits at and how many jobs we created (or lost) the previous month. And as most people who don’t follow Fox News know, every single month since March of 2010 we’ve created private […]

Senator Bernie Sanders To Introduce Roads And Jobs Bill

I can’t remember a single proposal from Republicans in recent history that would actually create jobs, yet all we’ve heard from them is some variation of the same old talking point about how President Obama is holding back the economy. Once Speaker Boehner or Mitch McConnell repeat their usual “it’s all Obama’s fault” speech, then […]

Are Republicans Planning To Cancel President Obama’s State Of The Union Address?

A story posted on December 6th has been circulating Facebook and elsewhere on the Internet that claims Republicans are planning to cancel President Obama’s State of the Union address next year. While some Republicans would probably like to do it out of spite, this claim is little more than an exaggeration, wrapped in hyperbole and designed […]

Reality Check for Republicans: The GOP Had Over a Year to Act on Immigration, Yet Did Absolutely Nothing

The date was June 27, 2013 when the United States Senate overwhelmingly passed a major bipartisan piece of legislation 68-32 that would have completely overhauled our immigration policies. At the time, both Republicans and Democrats celebrated the passage of this bill because it was one of the few major pieces of bipartisan legislation where both […]

Harry Reid Calls John Boehner a ‘Failure’ as a Leader, Says He’s ‘Spooked’ by Tea Party

I haven’t always been the biggest fan of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, but every once in a while he’ll say something that really hits the nail on the head. Speaking about immigration reform, and the Republican hissy fit they’re throwing because President Obama is using executive orders to do what he can since the […]

New Gallup Poll Shows Speaker Boehner’s Popularity Rating Way Below President Obama’s

Republicans often like to say the phrase, “We’re listening to the American people and they’re telling us (fill in the blank)!”  Which, as we all know, is complete nonsense. If Republicans in Congress were listening to the majority of the American people: Gay marriage would be legal. Background checks would be required on all gun […]

After All These Years, Are Republicans Finally Realizing Liberals Aren’t the Enemy?

Okay, hear me out.  I’m sure the majority of people who read the headline either jumped to a conclusion or simply dismissed it entirely, but it’s a question that deserves to be explored. Following Speaker of the House John Boehner’s decision to push back against the ultra right-wing groups that have been the primary forces […]
