Fooled Yet?

The news on the prospective Republican presidential nominee this week has been fast and furious and has nothing to do with a Darrell Issa bogus investigation even though it does seem contemptible.  Dribs and Drabs it isn’t, a new story, angle, article or accusation seems to be popping up almost […]

Facts not Slogans

And this sense of responsibility — to each other and our country — this isn’t a partisan feeling. This isn’t a Democratic or Republican idea. It’s patriotism.

The purpose of the American Jobs Act is simple: to put more people back to work and more money in the pockets of those who are working. It will create more jobs for construction workers, more jobs for teachers, more jobs for veterans, and more jobs for long-term unemployed.

Get To Work for the People!

The entire world is watching. So let’s seize this moment to show why the United States of America is still the greatest nation on Earth –- not just because we can still keep our word and meet our obligations, but because we can still come together as one nation.
