In 2016, the Republicans argued the Senate should not consider Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, because the vacancy happened just 269 days before the election… Now, with the election just 45 days away, the Republicans seem to fee differently…

I’m sorry that I haven’t been around much this past week, but I’ve had my hands full. I did want to stop by the site today, though, and announce that, even though I’m soon to be on the unemployment line, I’m going to be making a contribution to the Senate campaign of retired US Marine […]

I thought we could discuss Trump’s new health plan today — the one he promised to have signed into law yesterday — but apparently it doesn’t exist yet… In Trump’s defense, he’s only had 3.5 years.

In reality, cases are rising because Donald Trump has purposely slowed testing, pushed states to reopen prematurely, and politicized the wearing of masks. Full stop.
