A Simple Question About Wages

by: RDemocrat

Tue Jul 16, 2013 at 03:42:23 AM EDT

While issues such as immigration, going "nuclear" on nominees in the Senate, and the NSA program continue to dominate headlines and are important in their own right one issue continually gets overlooked by the media, the politicians and even American people. The fact that Americans are working harder and harder and their wages are not increasing and for many people have actually dropped. To me, the most pressing issue for our country and economy right now is that millions of Americans work and play by the rules and still aren't allowed enough of the fruits of their labors to contribute back to the American economy.

Flexibility the Latest Ploy Against Workers by Republicans

by: RDemocrat

Mon May 06, 2013 at 18:23:31 PM EDT

The modern Republican Party just never knows when to quit. They have already outsourced our middle-class. They have already depressed our wages. They have shamelessly redistributed our nation's wealth to the very top. Even more shamelessly they have forced working Americans to pay for the debt their policies of trickle-down has created. Through it all they have blocked anything that would help create jobs and put suffering Americans back to work.

Progressive Vision Over Austerity Is The Only Hope For America

by: RDemocrat

Fri Apr 19, 2013 at 01:32:07 AM EDT

It is no secret to millions of Americans that career politicians in Washington D.C. simply do not seem to care one bit about the real problems Americans face today. That is evident with their refusal to concentrate on the real crises in America right now namely a jobs crises and an income crises. Instead they are drumming up the "debt crises" as the main problem we face and are telling all of us that we are the ones who caused it. Worse yet, even when it comes to the debt these politicians have it all wrong.

Washington Finally Gets Bi-Partisanship

by: RDemocrat

Wed Apr 17, 2013 at 10:53:50 AM EDT

A funny thing is happening. While not being able to reach a bi-partisan consensus on just about anything like a jobs bill, immigration reform, or fair deficit reduction that would help the American people as a whole and after being in gridlock for so long on so many things Congress and the President finally achieved bi-partisanship. What they agreed on unfortunately should not surprise anyone.

President Obama: Are You Ready to Fight Yet?

by: RDemocrat

Mon Apr 08, 2013 at 15:28:19 PM EDT

For a long time we have been telling the President and all Democrats one thing. There is no need to try and compromise or "reach out" to the modern Republican Party led by such "people" as John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. Indeed reaching out to these folks only leads to one thing. Pulling back a bloody nub. And now for a President that seems all to willing to sell his base and his beliefs down the river for some "grand bargain" to create some sort of legacy to be "proud" of we can only ask this. Ready to fight yet?

Ashley Judd Out Of Kentucky Senate Race, Who's In?

by: RDemocrat

Thu Mar 28, 2013 at 00:19:41 AM EDT

After much hope and fanfare among national Democrats and many in Kentucky Ashley Judd has decided not to run against Mitch McConnell in 2014. While she is definitely an intelligent, compassionate lady that would have made a great Senator it appears as if she probably did not want to go through the meat-grinder that would have been the hypocritical Republican propaganda machine and the millions of dollars of mud that Mitch McConnell would have slung her way.

Mitch McConnell and the Republicans Want You to Pay for Their Habit Once More

by: RDemocrat

Thu Mar 21, 2013 at 19:30:02 PM EDT

One thing we have gotten quite used to around these parts. If Mitch McConnell opposes something you can be sure that it would help Americans as a whole. Also, if Mitch McConnell supports something you know it will be more of the same failed policies that have destroyed millions of lives and livelihoods in our country. It is no big surprise. After being in Washington to spearhead the redistribution of wealth from the working-class to the very few for decades Mitch McConnell has stood in opposition to anything that helps America as a whole because that would mean sacrifice from himself and the very few of his ilk he truly represents. Now once again in the budget arguments Mitch McConnell is clearly using his familiar hypocrisy in fighting to continue destroying our economy.

Whats So "Grand" About This "Bargain"?

by: RDemocrat

Fri Mar 15, 2013 at 02:24:29 AM EDT

President Obama is at it again. In "reaching out" to Republicans he is simply giving them too much power and too much say in deficit negotiations. These are after all the same Republicans who have lost the last two elections on their "ideals" and offer nothing of substance to millions of working Americans. Their only solution is to balance the budget on the backs of seniors, veterans, the working poor, and children. Their goal is to destroy our social safety net and take billions of dollars out of our pockets. Now, not only is President Obama helping them do it he is actually trying to convince Democrats who oppose such measures to back him up.

Amid Drone Strikes and Sequestrations: Agreement

by: RDemocrat

Sun Mar 10, 2013 at 23:08:10 PM EDT

It is on in force again. Whether they are whipping you into a frenzy over being blasted by a government drone or warning you about your world coming to an end because of sequestration Washington politicians are deflecting your attention away from one simple fact. They fully and completely intend on stealing Social Security benefits from as many people as possible.

A Victory? That Remains to be Seen

by: RDemocrat

Tue Jan 01, 2013 at 15:54:02 PM EST

With the "fiscal cliff" deal that was reached and passed by the Senate many are claiming both victory and doom and gloom. While I definitely think that we could have had a better "deal", I will concede that I definitely believe we would get much worse. However, one thing that is certain at this point. Nobody can breath a sigh of relief or declare victory or defeat until the looming debt ceiling debate is over.

Hey America Lets Go Cliff-Diving

by: RDemocrat

Sat Dec 22, 2012 at 01:14:33 AM EST

It is probably the best thing that has happened in the whole "fiscal cliff" fiasco. The Prince of Orange John Boehner suffered a humiliating defeat to his own radical caucus and left Washington without doing his job in disgrace. And while the Republican "Plan B" was shot down in flames the President and his post re-election ideas are just about as bad. And of course since its best for America that both Boehner and Obama's latest "compromises" are rejected the Senator for Communist China Mitch McConnell is calling for something he hasn't wanted for four years. For the Senate to pass a bill.

My Message to Democratic "Leaders": Again?

by: RDemocrat

Wed Dec 19, 2012 at 02:59:44 AM EST

The news today if true about the "fiscal cliff" negotiations is not only quite disturbing, but equally as much perplexing. I guess it should not be. The modern Democratic Party with a few exceptions has long been very good at this. Through cowardice or complicity or whatever reason you might believe the Democratic Party always seems to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. No wonder they can never keep power for too long and can never enact an agenda to stop decades of trickle-down economics. Americans believe they talk a good game but are too cowardly to do anything about it. And you know something? They are for the most part spot on.

On "Fiscal Cliff" Washington Ignores America Again

by: RDemocrat

Tue Dec 18, 2012 at 15:38:56 PM EST

No matter what party controls the White House or Congress one thing is ringing true time and time again. The politicians in Washington care little about the will of the American people and instead hope to impose their own elitist will upon the rest of us. These "fiscal cliff" negotiations are becoming the latest example of the "screw you" attitudes of politicians in both parties. Because although the American people have spoken, and continue to speak loud and clear on this issue Washington politicians simply refuse to listen.

Democrats Draw a Line in the Sand on Medicare

by: RDemocrat

Thu Dec 13, 2012 at 21:21:40 PM EST

Despite the continuing stalemate some good seems to be coming out of the "fiscal cliff" negotiations. While we appear no closer to a bad deal it appears one thing is finally happening. Democrats are banding together against "compromise" with Republicans. Compromise that included the stealing of Medicare and Social Security from younger generations.

Make That Call For Us All

by: RDemocrat

Mon Dec 10, 2012 at 19:41:30 PM EST

Even with our big election victory Progressives have much to fear. Democrats have long been good at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory and managing to capitulate in the name of "bi-partisanship" even when a vast majority of Americans want them to fight for what is right. Sadly, in the fiscal cliff negotiations Progressives must again be very afraid. Will Democrats sacrifice Social Security and Medicare to "compromise" with Republicans??

The Tax Argument in a Nutshell

by: RDemocrat

Thu Jul 26, 2012 at 00:21:43 AM EDT

As always for working Americans when something good happens, something bad is always waiting in the wings to shoot it down. Such is the case today. While Democrats in the Senate barely mustered the votes to end the Bush Tax Cuts for the very wealthy one thing is certain. Certain death awaits in in the Republican controlled House. Even worse, Republicans are determined to hold tax cuts for all Americans hostage to keep the very wealthy from paying more and no lie is too big to tell you about why the 2% of people they really represent should not pay their fair share.

Paycheck Fairness Act Defeat Is Part Of A Greater War

by: RDemocrat

Wed Jun 06, 2012 at 00:26:32 AM EDT

It is not hard to see all that is wrong in this country today. Everyday, everywhere you look it is easy to understand why this country has gone to hell if you want to accept the truth. The truth is no matter what happens working Americans can depend on one thing. Anything that levels the playing field with Corporate interests for them will be defeated. Sadly, anything that allows the 1% to continue robbing and raping our country blind will always be enacted as well.

Plea to Wisconsin Democrats: TURNOUT!!

by: RDemocrat

Mon Jun 04, 2012 at 19:14:44 PM EDT

While the war on the American worker has been waged nonstop for the better part of three decades, one of the newest fronts in that war was opened in Wisconsin. All of us remember Scott Walker and his war on workers and their rights in Wisconsin. It led to much drama and now tomorrow a recall of the sitting Governor. Now polling is showing this race up in the air and it appears as if turnout will be the key to who will win.

Tax Cut Argument Shows the Sorry State of American Democracy

by: RDemocrat

Tue May 01, 2012 at 14:12:32 PM EDT

The Republicans want to portray themselves as "deficit hawks". They constantly maintain that slashing spending on the social safety net millions of Americans depend on and lowering taxes on themselves and those they represent will bring the deficit down and help the economy. After thirty years of this failed "trickle-down" idiocy on thing is clear. Due to the definition of insanity we should be fitting the whole Republican Party and many of the Democrats for a strait jacket.
