A GOP for America's future

Dustin Siggins

Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell have promised that Congress would move on tax reform, the national debt, and repealing the Affordable Care Act. We hope that they follow through -- but given the GOP's tendency to overpromise and under-deliver, we have our doubts.

We have an immigration issue here today. People will risk their lives to get here to become part of the bigger, louder American Family. The problem isn't that these people are coming here -- the problem is we have part of our family who have forgotten what it was like to be Italian (or whatever group YOU come from).

The GOP has taken control of the Senate after winning a handful of red states. This makes Senator Mitch McConnell the new Majority Leader, yet voters have not endorsed McConnell's pro-polluter agenda of dirty air and unlimited climate change pollution.

Boehner's Constitution Of Convenience

Ironically, Speaker Boehner resorted to the American justice system to sue President Obama, the very system he has worked relentlessly to underfund for indigents. Instead of suing Obama, he should start fixing the system he and his colleagues broke.

The problem is that for most circuses, after a couple of weeks, they move on. But in our American Circus, the Republican ideology and clowning will stick around indefinitely unless we hire new performers who want the show to go on!

Windup Toy Monkey Is Metaphor For John Boehner's Life

Republicans are going to be arguing one thing for Perry, and the exact opposite for Obama. This is going to become more and more obvious to all concerned.

Friday Talking Points -- Boehner's 'Keystone Kops' House

Chris Weigant

As I write this, the House has still not managed to pass a bill to deal with the border crisis. They've been trying for a few days now, but have been locked in a serious battle between Tea Party hardliners and Republicans from more moderate districts.

When I learned that House Speaker John Boehner is suing President Barack Obama, I thought about a number of good reasons for something to limit executive actions. For example, would it be to limit NSA spying on its citizens?

By the time you read this, Congressional Republicans will have overwhelmingly voted to violate one of their most cherished guiding principles: A service should be paid for by those who use the service.

Boehner's Laughable Lawsuit

Chris Weigant | Posted 09.15.2014 | Politics
Chris Weigant

The Republicans believe that suing Obama will excite and turn out their base voters, and they're betting that this benefit will be larger than any political blowback. Whether they're right in this political calculation or not remains to be seen. But what is undeniable is that, so far, this lawsuit is nothing short of laughable.

Boehner's History of Inaction on Border Control

Chris Weigant | Posted 09.13.2014 | Politics
Chris Weigant

Boehner has gone from confidently touting his and his fellow House Republicans' upcoming leadership on the issue of immigration, to now doing nothing more than groveling for Obama to solve the problem using his executive authority -- which is an ironic enough stance for a Republican to take, these days.

Hobby Lobby, Climate Change, and the GOP's Women Problem

Heather Taylor-Miesle | Posted 09.10.2014 | Politics
Heather Taylor-Miesle

When did climate change become a women's issue? When women made it clear they care deeply about it. Women in battleground states understand (by a margin of 72 percent to 19 percent) that we have a moral obligation to future generations to make the air safer to breathe and the climate more stable.

You don't need a crystal ball to see that immigration-reform legislation is dead. It is consistently one of the most difficult topics for any country to tackle, and we have the most dysfunctional, do-nothing Congress in U.S. history.

Obama: Will He Cut Deportations or Stand Idle?

Ryan Campbell | Posted 05.13.2014 | Latino Voices

The criticism from the immigrant rights community has been quiet for a long time as they tried to press Congress. Now, pressure on the President is coming to bear as a legislative solution seems increasingly unlikely, and relief is around five years and almost 2 million deportations late.
