Once again on the third Monday in January, much of the nation marked the anniversary of the death of the late Rev.

Does Democratic takeover of the house mean the ACA is safe?

November 30, 2018

“I’m signing it for 11-year-old Marcelas Owens, who’s also here. Marcelas lost his mom to an illness. And she didn’t have insurance and couldn’t afford the care that she needed. So in her memory he has told her story across America so that no other children have to go through what his family has experienced […]

Democrats must address voting irregularities

November 21, 2018

In the days after midterm Election Day, November 6, 2018, you could not turn on a television or even have a conversation without hearing about aspects of voter suppression, voting irregularities, or merely extreme voting inconvenience.
