Joe Biden quietly has the best plan to take on income inequality since the New Deal

Joe Biden quietly has the best plan to take on income inequality since the New Deal

The question is… why so quiet? There was a bit of a justifiable freakout this week when Ted Kaufman, the long-time Biden aide who is running Joe Biden’s transition team, was reported as saying, “When we get in, the pantry is going to be bare.” This sounds a lot like the kowtowing to phony deficit whining that plagued Democrats during […]

The stock market wants to make sure Republicans get their greater depression

By ignoring the horrors of Covid-19, Wall Street will guarantee no real relief for workers before or after the election In his latest essential thread, Andy Slavitt — who you know ran Obamacare, Medicare and Medicaid under President Obama — nails a point I’ve been trying to get at all week: Trump — and thus, the entire Republican Party — […]

Republican Senate candidate John James ignores Michigan but galavants around the U.S. for super-conservative endorsements & cash

It’s been many a moon since Michigan Republicans have put up any sort of legitimate candidate for U.S. Senate. In 1996, Ronna Romney, the mother of RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel, got crushed by Carl Levin who had trounced Bill Schuette six years before.

Michigan Organizing Together 2020 is going to defeat Donald Trump’s agenda

To date, over 398,000 Americans have contracted COVID-19 and almost 56,000 have passed away. Trump has shown that he is incapable of protecting Americans during a crisis. He has continued to engage in racist rhetoric during his press briefings and makes claims that hydroxychloroquine will be a “game changer”, despite there being no medical evidence.
