According to Mitch McConnell, many Kentuckians are getting “permanent pay raises” because of the Republican tax bill… Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a one

Earlier today, I got sent a tweet from Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. He wanted to let me know that, because of the big corporate tax-giveaways that he and his fellow Republicans passed at the end of the year, a lot of folks, including “many” in my home state of Kentucky, had gotten “significant bonuses” and […]

When news first broke a few weeks ago that Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for Senate in Alabama, had been not only accused of pedophilia, but also banned from a local shopping mall because of his aggressive pursuit of young girls, a good number of Republicans did the right thing.

Flake News…. Republican Jeff Flake, announcing his retirement from the Senate, declares “I will not be complicit”

While I certainly respect and appreciate what Arizona Senator Jeff Flake had to say this afternoon about Donald Trump’s “reckless, outrageous and undignified behavior,” and the need for members of Congress to stand up against him, I think it would have carried significantly more weight had he said it several months ago. Trump’s “reckless, outrageous […]
