As far as I’m concerned, Bill Maher’s view of the world is very much in synch with my own. In fact, if ...
  • Can Donald Trump’s Supreme Court Nominee Be Stopped?: “Trump Civics 101” Simple answer:  Yes How? The Democrats in The Senate can “Filibuster” the nomination.  What does that mean?

People used to stand up for many ...
  • Senators Now On The Front Line I am heartened by the opposition of Senators Murkowski and Collins to the appointment of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education.  I hope that signals more independence ahead.  For me, personally, there is a bit of a back story. In July, 2010, President Obama used his recess appointment authority to make me the administrator of the ...
  • The Democratic Party Needs Keith Ellison The American people have faced stagnant wages and rising inequality for decades. Many Americans voted for Donald Trump or decided not to vote at all because Democrats failed to communicate effectively with working people and turn out the vote – end of story.

  • On Radio, Gardner Says He Thinks Gorsuch Wrote about Roe v. Wade Asked by a conservative talk-radio host whether U.S. Senators have private discussions with U.S Supreme Court nominees about cases like Roe v. Wade, U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) said Thursday they “absolutely occur,” but Gardner dodged a follow-up question about whether he’d discussed Roe with Neil Gorsuch, President Donald Trump’s high court nominee. Gardner also said ...

  • It’s Not Just A Muslim Ban, It’s Much Worse With a stroke of the pen on a misdirected and, I believe, malicious Executive Order (EO), President Donald Trump unleashed a dynamic that will, I fear, have consequences as far-reaching and damaging to my country and my community as the Bush Administration’s wrong-headed responses to the 9/11 terror attacks. What the various provisions of the EO ...
  • Trump’s America–A Not So Shining City on the Hill Barely two weeks into the Trump presidency and the United States is already less great and weaker than it was before he took office.

  • Border Tax Adjustability Making Progress on the Hill I’ve been talking to some of the Coalition for a Prosperous America’s lobbyists about the current situation for border-adjustable taxes, i.e. taxes that might help improve America’s trade situation, up on Capitol Hill.
