Quit SAYING that! People will think things are getting better.The Romney campaign wants Florida Governor Rick Scott to quit talking about how great the economy is in Florida right now. Knowing that an improved economic picture kills Romney's only talking point in this election, they simply can NOT have that kind of talk.
I am trying to break your heart
On either Thursday, June 21 or Monday, June 25, the Supreme Court will issue its decision on the Affordable Care Act, which I’ve grown to enjoy calling ObamaCare. National treasure Jonathan Cohn describes likely scenarios for how the Court will rule, and the prospects are grim. Likely, some—if not all—of the bill will be struck down.
Watching this epic achievement for working people being erased summarily by a Court increasingly tainted by conservative politics makes me want to holler. Health care in the United States was actually socialized in the dumbest possible way through a law signed by Ronald Reagan.…

Surprise, surprise: Ryan plan that Romney supports taxes the middle class, gives tax breaks to the rich (updated)
Government by the wealthy, for the wealthy
I realize that this is going to come as a huge shock to many of you. Perhaps you’d like to sit down for this:
The budget plan put forth by Paul Ryan will raise taxes on the middle class and give huge tax breaks to the super wealthy.
That’s the plan that Mitt Romney said this about:
They just can't help themselvesJust one day after thousands gathered at the Michigan state Capitol to decry the denigration and diminishing of women in the legislature, Republicans continue to show themselves for the utter pigs that they are. This time, it's State Rep. Wayne Schmidt from Traverse City on Michael Patrick Shiels' radio show who continued their blatant war on women.
Well this doesn't happen every dayMy mother was an early feminist in the late 70s/early 80s. She marched on Washington, D.C. for the Equal Rights Amendment. My first "activism" action was to join her and a handful of other ladies on a road trip for a similar march in Chicago where Bella Abzug and Gloria Steinem and many other leading feminists spoke. And we always had Ms. magazine hanging around. When I was around ten years old, I read Ms. magazine all the time. It had a significant impact on my perceptions about women and how they are viewed and treated in society. Yesterday, a post we put up was linked and photos we took were posted at Ms. magazine's website in a piece titled "The War on Women, Michigan Front". She would have been very proud of that. But there's something she would have been even MORE proud of, I think.

We believe that women should have access to reproductive medical services and professional advice when they need it. We pledge our support for reproductive freedom, giving a woman the right to make her own choices in this matter. But we respect the individual conscience of each American on this difficult issue. We strongly support family planning, child care, and adoption programs such as those in Governor Granholm’s pregnancy reduction initiative.
However, on a vote last week on legislation that will limit Michigan women’s right to choose a safe and legal abortion, six Democrats actually sided with the Republicans and voted for H.B.…
