President Obama's "To Do" List for Congress

8 President Obama has put together a "to do" list for Congress that, if acted upon quickly, will create jobs and help restore middle class security. These initiatives all have bipartisan support, and the President believes that they will help create an economy built to last that supports secure American jobs and makes things the rest of the world buys - not one built on outsourcing, loopholes, or risky financial deals.

Beating Kesha Rogers

By Steve Brown

What if I told you that a candidate in the Democratic Primary would like to have President Barack Obama impeached? What if I told you that she’s a thirty-something, photogenic and articulate African American woman? Finally, what if I told you that two years ago she actually won the Democratic nomination for Congressional District 22, and went on to enter the general election by viciously attacking our President?

“When he demanded to see video tape of her having sex, that crosses the line into fantasizing about pornography and violence," NOW president Terry O'Neill said.

End the Free Ride!

Working families pay our fair share of taxes every April while the ultra-wealthy and large corporations are paying less and less. In fact, many outsized firms and their executives pay a lower tax rate than their workers.

It’s an outrage. And it got us wondering, if General Electric paid its fair share in taxes like the rest of us this April, what could our communities do with the $2.67 billion in lost revenue?
