If the country continues on Obama's path of investment in manufacturing and infrastructure, it is expected that economy recovery will speed up and grow.
For those of you who believe that unions are no longer needed, take a look at the proposal by New Hampshire Republicans to eliminate required lunch breaks.
As jobs continue to be added to the economy, President Obama is presiding over the fastest six month decrease in unemployment since Ronald Reagan in 1984.
Thanks to Citizens United, Mitt Romney was able to buy a victory in Florida, instead of winning it.
In a shot across the bow of the Republicans' attempt to deem President Obama ineffective, US industrial companies have increased confidence in the US economy.
The conventional wisdom is a Romney nomination would give President Obama a run, while a Gingrich candidacy would ensure an Obama victory, but I'm not sold on that. Here's why.
In 1956 the GOP ran a campaign based on extending Social Security, unemployment benefits, increasing the minimum wage. What the happened to the Republican Party?
Now that Romney unveiled he pays less of a percentage in taxes than you tip the waitress at the local diner, conservatives are now changing their tune regarding capital gains and corporate taxes.
We have all heard the lie, that President Obama is the worst domestic energy President ever. Unfortunately, the facts have a progressive biased and run counter to the Republican claims.
If the public sector was hiring as it did under Reagan, unemployment may be 8% or less today, rather than 8.5%. This is why the Republicans do not want to pass the Obama jobs bill.
Obamacare continues to prove the GOP wrong by creating jobs. In December, 23,000 private sector healthcare jobs were added to the economy.
A hidden trigger in ObamaCare may very well pave the road to single payer health insurance system or Medicare for all.
The GOP claims more drilling will achieve energy independence, but for the first time in 50 years, the US exported more gasoline than it imported.
President Obama seems to have a hint of President Theodore Roosevelt in him, here. President Theodore Roosevelt stood with American families and small business when he took on the monopolies and trusts. It seems that President Obama is doing the same with health insurance companies. We must hold these companies accountable.
Main Street conservatives need to wake up to the fact that, the Republican politicians do not fight for you. They fight for Wall Street and Big Corporations who throw your neighbors onto the street. Wall Street has a plan to make working class Americans, whether your liberal, conservative, Democrat or Republican economically irrelevant. The point is, if your working class, Wall Street doesn't need you or better yet DOESN'T WANT YOU and neither does Corporate America.
In a charity campaign aimed at helping school lunch programs in the U.S.A, GAP is promoting FEED USA bags. These bags cost between $19.50 and $39.50. For each bag you purchase, GAP donates $5 to school lunch programs in the United States. It sounds good until you realize that GAP decided to sell bags "Made in China" for just under $40.00 and donate $5 to FEED USA.
A lot has been said about our founding fathers in recent years. The tea party has all of a sudden become historical scholars. They have become the defenders of our Country and our Constitution. Glenn Beck is their proverbial historical professor. Unfortunately their knowledge is fairly limited to specifically what their Fox News comrade regurgitates, which inaccurately represents the true views of the Founding Fathers.
Here is where the problem lies with the conservative argument defending tax breaks for the top 2%. It is causing a greater gap in our income brackets. The disparity of income in this Country has grown to Gilded Age levels.In 1925-26 the top marginal income tax was DROPPED from 73% to 25%. This caused the greatest disparity in income in our history until today.
