House Republicans have now voted 37 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act, aka, "Obamacare." (source)
37 times. Even though repeal has no chance of passing the Senate, and certainly no chance of being signed by President Obama.
There is real work to be done, and yet Boehner and the House Republicans have chosen to focus instead on appealing to their lunatic fringe through a series of "Groundhog Day" votes. Enough is enough.
45 Senators were gutless when it came to gun background checks, but...
Let's give a shout out to the ones who DID do the right thing, and who had the guts and principles to take a tough vote.
Send a message, tell them thanks, and... share, share, share.
The latest, from Left Action:
Want to defeat Michele Bachmann in 2014? Click here, tell her to "take a hike," and get ready to make it happen. The DCCC is making defeating her a top priority, and so are we. She is an embarrassment and a danger to America at the same time. Enough is enough. Tell Michele Bachmann to take a hike -- and help defeat her in 2014.
The "gentlemen's agreement" Reid agreed to at the beginning of this term has been a colossal failure. Republicans have not reduced abuse of the filibuster, they've increased it.
It's time for Harry Reid to stop being played for such a fool. It's time for real filibuster reform.
On average, sealers make less than 5 percent of their income from killing seals. So what brings in the other 95 percent? Seafood.
Here is how your boycott of Canadian seafood can help: Canada's Department of Fisheries and Oceans says it will shut down the commercial seal slaughter when Canada's fishing industry asks it to do so. Since more than 60 percent of the fishing industry's seafood exports is to the United States, this gives us a lever.

Sometimes it seems like Donald Trump really must stay up nights, figuring out ways to be an even bigger clown:
Back in October, everyone's favorite businessman who needs to fire his hair stylist challenged Barack Obama to present his college transcripts and passport records in exchange for a $5 million donation to the charities of the president's choice. Needless to say, the POTUS never took Trump up on his offer.
President Obama has just asked Congress to take a series of steps to fight gun violence, and has taken immediate action himself by signing multiple executive orders.
Spread the word by sharing this, and let's keep up the pressure. Reasonable people can differ on the exact steps needed, but if we (once again) take no action, we should be ashamed.
