Whether you own a business, are receiving government assistance, are involved in theater or a health care nonprofit, live with or care about fighting HIV/AIDS or want to guarantee your civil rights, you have a stake in the results of keeping the nation from falling off the "fiscal cliff."
Familiar faces surround the talks of a fiscal cliff compromise. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.), S...
For Democrats to feel proud of pulling out a squeaker against such opponents should be roughly equivalent to the NFL's Baltimore Ravens exulting over a three-point victory over a high school football team.
Superstorm Sandy was a disaster brought to us by Mother Nature. The fiscal cliff is being brought to us by human nature. Which will be worse? Time will tell.
Although the election is behind us, the Republicans and Corporate America have rolled out a front group that's promoting the proposals of failed GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney as a way to resolve the fiscal showdown.
Contrary to the popular myths, the wild turkey can fly. As the recent election has proven, so can we, if, like that original American bird, we keep close to the ground.
Winning is a habit; so is losing. After the 2012 presidential election, one political party continues their downward spiral into the abyss.
The 2012 election is all good news for the Democratic Party, but it should not be mistaken for a demographic inevitability that will doom the Republican Party to decades, or even years of failure.
We're beyond the mere need for civil discourse. Our minds are askew. We actually believe our own rhetoric as an article of faith. We no longer know how to talk because we no longer know how to think.
On our 100th show, Arianna and Mary debate the post-election Republican re-set and whether new GOP members should be required to watch not Patton but Lincoln.

Steven Spielberg's Lincoln opens in wide release today, after a limited release last Friday -- and with luck, Barack Obama will not only see it but take it as a template for the current lame-duck session of Congress and for his impending second term.
CEO Math is what results after drinking an ideological Red Bull. Suitably buzzed, you then begin to do arithmetic to maximize short-term profits -- regardless of whether your math is legal, ethical, good for business in the long-term
Limbaugh is becoming a spent force. Even Fox News may stop putting that buffoon Morris on the air as a serious pundit. And when a numbers guy like Rove gets the numbers wrong, he has nothing left.
America woke up last Wednesday to find its government essentially unchanged. After a campaign season that lasted for almost a year and a half and cam...
The vast majority of Americans are willing to do their part to support their country. And they expect no special exemption from that responsibility for the nation's richest. They sent that message Tuesday through their ballot choices. John Boehner must have snoozed through that missive.
In our "after report," Reagan and Matalin discuss whether 2012 turned on Messina's GOTV or Obama's views on government and taxes? Did GOP lose because of messenger or message -- both? Or is it, as Chou en lai said of French Revolution, "too soon to tell?"
