The economy is growing for the extremely wealthy, but there were 3 million more children living in extreme poverty in 2013 than in 2008
It is likely that Senator Sanders was sending a message to the Koch brothers that regardless they currently control government spending, he intends on appealing to the people for support to invest in America. Something Republicans oppose regardless Americans' lives have been lost and are increasingly in danger due to America's substandard transportation infrastructure.
The problem with the Republicans' argument and lies, and there are many, is that statistics continue to prove that conservative anti-government policies over the past thirty-five years have driven income inequality and degraded society and are every bit as responsible for the events in Baltimore as out-of-control police violence against African Americans.
The same people that apparently hate the libertarian Koch brothers are looking on Rand Paul as a decent human being; a monumental error one expects moronic Republicans to make, but not anyone on the left.
The big plan the new Koch Senate is due to propose this week is cutting food stamps substantially and giving the reduced amounts directly to states in the form of "block grants."
Once in a while, and not very often, one award-winner actually says something worth hearing and as is usually the case, if it is an important social message it will irritate some group.

Democrats have a living, breathing example of privatizing Medicare, and frankly everything in the Path to Prosperity budget, that has done nothing Republicans promise and everything Democrats warned will come to pass. If he has accomplished nothing else, Kansas Governor Sam Brownback has given Democrats and all of America a preview of precisely what a Republican Congress will do to America.
Even though Brat appears to be an extremist outlier in the conservative movement, his outrage that Cantor voted to raise the debt ceiling and end the government shutdown is not outside the mindset of the majority of Republicans in Congress and it is down to Brat's economic ideology.
To put Ryan's face on the new compassionate conservatism is an affront to any American familiar with his contempt for suffering Americans.
As devastating as the food stamp cuts that took effect may be, they are just a preview of increased hunger 48 million Americans are going to face when Republicans led by Paul Ryan decimate SNAP.
With entire swaths of Detroit uninhabited, some white knights are swooping in and buying up empty lots, parking lots and buildings both big and small.
Detroit faces austerity, vulture capitalists, and privatization as right wing ideologues pounce. Of course, no good will come of it.
Republicans are actively pursuing policies that target and punish the poor, or purposely keep them downtrodden as a punitive measure for being poor, and it characterizes the GOP across the nation.
House tea partiers are preparing to celebrate the damage to the people and economy that the sequestration cuts will cause when they begin in two days.
Joseph Farah just can't wrap his mind around a Christianity that includes its Christ, and attacks Jim Wallis for getting Jesus right
Since Ryan was chosen as Romney's running mate, he attempted to distance himself from his devotion to Randian ideology, but his budget and audio tapes remain.
Pamela Geller disengenuously claims she does not hate all Arabs and Muslims despite paraphrasing an Ayn Rand quote which does exactly that
