Critics of the report say it is propaganda designed to skewer the Obama EPA and environmental philanthropists for "conspiring to help the environment."
It's not just dirty money that earns Congressman Shimkus today's Dirty Denier award, it's his opposition to reducing dangerous carbon pollution.
Why is Congressman Cory Gardner smiling? Maybe it's because in just four years in Congress, he has raised $695,000 from dirty polluters from the oil and gas industry, who happen to be the largest source of his contributions.
Latinos can send a message of their own on November 4th. But to do so, they must get out and vote, not let their voice be drowned out by a small group of extremists that would rather they stay home in silence.

believed that change we could believe in meant a true progressive in office. Obama once famously said, "I'd rather be a really good one-term president than a mediocre two-term president." Yet save for some miracles in his final two years, mediocre, and many times worse, is exactly what kind of a president he has been.
These two bills do not represent a coherent response to our border crisis. They reflect Speaker Boehner's failed leadership as well as the triumph of immigration extremists. While these bills will have zero policy impact, the GOP will likely feel their political impact for years to come -- and not in a good way.
