Now they've gone too far. Two Republican judges (on a three-judge panel) just issued a decision that would gut Obamacare by denying subsidies to anyon...
At the Netroots Nation conference this past weekend, I had the opportunity to sit down with Maine senate candidate Shenna Bellows. We didn't have a lot of time to chat, but I definitely had enough time to find out that she has a great and diverse background, and is an incredibly thoughtful person
This past week, as I drove through Central Washington, I came face to face with the horrifying destruction caused by the wildfires currently raging through much of Washington State. The haze was so thick that it was difficult to see.
While I love our country, I'm sad my children and grandchildren won't have the same opportunities their ancestors had to succeed in America.
It seems as if every day, regardless of what's going on in the world, Obama (or "this president" as he is commonly called) is charged with pretty much the same things. So I will simplify the job.

The biggest political event of the week (for Democrats, at any rate) was Nancy Pelosi and the House Democrats rolling out a new campaign agenda -- the "Middle Class Jumpstart" -- in the tradition of Newt Gingrich's "Contract With America."
If low penalties aren't enough, business allies in Congress are busily making it harder to collect penalties once levied -- the House Appropriations Committee just voted to block EPA from garnishing wages to collect fines from recalcitrant violators.
The underlying drug guidelines amendment was approved by the U.S. Sentencing Commission and submitted to Congress for review in April. Provided Congress takes no action to disapprove of the drug guidelines amendment before November 1, 2014, it will take effect on that date.
It appears that the key hurdle to a diplomatic breakthrough is a surmountable one: defining the size and scale of Iran's enrichment program throughout the course of an agreement.
OK, quick, grab your gene gun and shoot tiny DNA-coated metal pellets of "Scandal" into the pitch-dark cell walls of the "House of Cards" and you have...
