The Republican party's national approval rating is at its lowest point since 1992 - about 32%, compared with 46% for Democrats. As pollster Stanl...
The Republican Senate just voted to reject plans by President Obama and the EPA to dramatically reduce emissions from coal power plants. This is reactionary politics. It is also political theater that plays right into the hands of the President.
Considering the Republicans' inability to see the irony of holding a nativist attitude in a country built by immigrants and inhabited by people with ancestry of foreign dissent, the Democratic Party is proud to unveil an updated immigration platform.
If the full extent of the budgetary problems are not well understood, how can we be in a position to address the problems?
