Progressives on the Take

The Podesta brothers are the faces of the so-called progressive wing of the Democratic Party that, like the president himself, will talk a good game of reducing income inequality, while catering to the interests of the very corporations that have initiated the problem.

The Republican Mainstream Strikes Back

The unusual display of reasonable behavior by House Republicans this week should be seen as a retreat—a change in tactics—but not a surrender. Democrats had better note the distinction.

Mandela’s Crucial Lesson for America—and the Republicans Who Never Learn

Beyond the eulogies bestowed this week on the late and truly great Nelson Mandela—a visionary, revolutionary and peacemaker—there is much for Americans to learn from the story of his vexed relationship with our country.

‘The Daily Show’s’ John Oliver Celebrates the Budget Deal

Some are calling it a “Christmas miracle,” but most can see the agreement reached by congressional negotiators after four years of living in a budget-less country is much ado about nothing. Except senior political correspondent John Oliver, who argues that the bipartisan budget is comparable to the Civil Rights Act.

The Inadequate, Necessary Budget Deal

It’s a sign of how far to the right House Republicans have dragged governance in our country that the very conservative budget deal reached by Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Patty Murray will need many liberal and Democratic votes to pass.

(Mis)Representations by Gerry Mander

“The Daily Show’s” Jason Jones discusses the “art” of gerrymandering with redistricting consultant Kimball Brace, a man who won’t stop drawing ludicrous new districts even after he’s run the country into the ground. The only thing left to do is honor this artist with a gallery exhibit that shows how he uses color to change the face of American politics.

Why Republicans Can’t Address Rising Inequality

So far, the Republican response to President Barack Obama’s historic address on economic inequality has not veered from the predictable cliches of tea party rhetoric.

Raise the Minimum Wage

Now that President Obama has outlined the crisis in economic mobility, he should begin by pressing his demand that Congress raise the minimum wage—and not by a little, but a lot.

Obama’s Bigger Playing Field

The debate over the Affordable Care Act can stay small, focusing on website failures and other short-term difficulties facing the law. Or it can get bigger, with wider insurance coverage seen as part of a larger struggle for social justice in a nation growing steadily less equal.

AIDS Epidemic Met With Silence and Laughter by the Reagan Administration

Everyone knows President Ronald Reagan ignored the AIDS epidemic, but few know his press secretary publicly chuckled about it; Hillary Clinton hasn’t weighed in on the Iran deal, prompting some to wonder whether there are neocon forces pulling her strings; meanwhile, a $40,000 TV went on sale on Amazon, leading to hilarious comments mocking the uber-rich. These discoveries and more after the jump.

How Rich People Create Jobs

Share
GOP politicians cut taxes for rich people and big corporations. Rich people use the money they would have spent on taxes to hire part-time, low-wage workers. Workers manufacture products for rich people to sell. Products don't sell because low-wage workers have little money, pension or social security. Rich people lay off workers and keep the money.
