While it is good that 700,000 jobs were not destroyed last night, America needs to be investing to create millions of jobs, not just to prevent the worst.
The fight to renew unemployment insurance has always been about those who are most affected. This is about the forgotten Americans struggling just to make ends meet. We hear them, we stand with them, and we urge House Republicans to end their resistance to an extension.
Over the past six months, I have had the opportunity to talk to people of all ages and backgrounds as I run to serve in Congress. While jobs and the e...
No, I am not rotting in my parents' basement. However, if I had not moved in with my mother, I would be homeless. I am single and have no children; however, if I had children, I would likely be eligible for additional benefits.
In many ways, an entrepreneur's career is like a football game. Both combine a swift pace with a highly competitive atmosphere. The "game" is divided into four quarters. In the first quarter you assess the other team's strengths and weaknesses based on your scouting report.
