senate-planMuch like the House version that tanked earlier this year, the Senate version of the health care bill intended to replace Obamacare is nothing more than a huge tax break for the rich and a gift to insurance companies and Big Pharma. It is cruel and inhumane to the most vulnerable in our society.  Read More and Comment

secret-plotThe GOP complained endlessly about the democrats and how there wasn't enough transparency back in 2009 when Obamacare was passed. Frankly, that is a myth. There was far more meetings and hearings and compromise with that bill. Now, the hypocrites are creating their own draconian health care bill in secret. Nice.  Read More and Comment

caesarTrump supporters protested a rendition of Julius Caesar in Central Park. They were upset that the lead role was a Trump-like character. The Right is jumping on this as an example of left-wing Trump-hating. To be fair, in 2012 the company also produced a version with Obama as Caesar.  Read More and Comment
