President Obama…This Is Math, Not Class Warfare.

The President quite rightly predicted in his speech that the Republicans will mindlessly fall back on their old worn out rhetoric of chanting ‘Class Warfare’.

A New Effort to Legislate Access to Abortion: You Can’t Be Serious, Right?

This year has witnessed an unprecedented number of attempts by state legislatures and pro-life groups to restrict access to abortion, either by making it harder for women to obtain it, for doctors to provide it, or by imposing ridiculous regulations on abortion clinics that would cost thousands of extra dollars to fund that they simply don’t have.
