Whether a final plan emerges from the House or not, immigration reform has broad public support. Americans agree it is time for action, but are looking to its leaders to resolve the remaining conflicts.
Survival is not a partisan issue. We need all hands on deck.
Putin's invasion of the Crimea is already costing Russia dearly. President Obama is steering the correct course when he strengthens the region to offset Russian 'exercises,' but the real punishment here will be financial and sanctions.
So what draws us to these shows especially at a time when the public has so much disdain for government? Why does there seem to be an inverse relationship between "approval ratings" of the shows and the real-life counterparts of their characters?
Someone, such as Adegbile, would have thoughtfully and aggressively enforced the nation's civil rights and voting rights which are exactly the very thing that the GOP has done everything possible to undermine. Now we can add a troop of timid and self-serving Democrats to that shameful list.
One Senator shut down the entire United States government. Imagine what Cory Gardner could shut down if he is elected to the Senate.
This year, several Tea Party challengers seem to be crashing and burning early in the process. This could be very good news for the Establishment Republican wing of the party. Rather than have a candidate implode in the general election, when candidates self-destruct before the primary then they never become the nominee in the first place.
I was proud to work to require insurance plans under the ACA to cover services vital to new mothers, which include access to breast pumps, as well as lactation support and counseling. Unfortunately, TRICARE, the health insurance provided to members of the military and their families, does not cover some of these same critical services.
Current systems of voting in the Senate and House are not required by law or the Constitution. They are rules and policies which senators and representatives have imposed upon themselves to set their own agendas.

During a time when Congress is synonymous with gridlock and obstructionism, the women are showing we can move past the partisanship, roll up our sleeves and get things done. And we're not slowing down. Women aren't sitting back after they win an election. They're leaning in!
These solutions may not be Uber-perfect, but they would definitely make it more of a sustainable job for a driver than the current situation. Uber needs to treat the N.Y./N.J. area as a separate beast, otherwise they'll find themselves with a massive driver exodus.
More and more American businesses have found themselves tied up in senseless litigation or threatened with extortive threats as patent trolls exploit flaws in the patent litigation system. Because of this, businesses have been forced to spend valuable time and money on pointless lawsuits.
Many legislators are attempting to force the Obama administration's hand on additional sanctions out of a mistaken belief that increasing economic pressure now will strengthen the U.S. negotiating position. It is more likely that this move would provoke Iranian leaders to ratchet up their nuclear enrichment program, which the Iranian parliament has threatened to do in response to increased sanctions.
Who am I? I'm a Montana rancher and Democrat who wants to be the next U.S. senator from Montana. I'm the dark horse running for the open seat to repl...
Call me a cock-eyed optimist if you will, but I couldn't help wondering how different next year's State of the Union speech will be if Democrats have a much better year than expected and not only hold the Senate but win control of the House.
