It’s painful to watch someone who has so completely lost the narrative As Emma pointed out yesterday, Terri Lynn Land is on a one-woman crusade to ensure that we’re fully aware that she doesn’t support income equality for women by repeatedly bringing up the “War on Women” topic. Yesterday it was a comical video that is getting trounced all over […]Read more ›

Terri Lynn Land apparently thinks we didn’t spend enough time talking about her record on equal pay over the last couple of weeks, so she’s airing a snarky ad defending herself.
So let’s talk about it again. For the record, Terri Lynn Land does not support improving our equal pay protections. Gary Peters does. Even though she wants being a woman (and her apparently legitimately decent record as an employer of women) to insulate her from attacks here, the fight about equal pay is a legitimate policy disagreement and one that women (and men) in Michigan are entitled to hear the candidates address.Read more ›
Terri Lynn Land, we need equal pay AND more flexibility
Terri Lynn Land (deservedly) caught a lot of heat last week over her suggestion that women would prefer flexibility over equal pay. And Senator Stabenow slammed Land again in a strong op-ed in the Free Press yesterday, bringing home the tangible impacts of lost wages.
Stabenow and others are right that it is unjustifiable for women to be paid less than men for doing the same work. But there’s a kernel of something worth addressing in Land’s comments, something that points to another ongoing inequality in the U.S. – inequality at home, linked in a vicious cycle to lower pay at work.Read more ›
Refusing to debate fair pay is one more way Republicans are trying to marginalize women — and their votes. It should come as no surprise that Senate Republicans have blocked the Paycheck Fairness Act for the third time. On Wednesday — the day after Equal Pay Day — they blocked a vote to simply open debate on the bill. Republicans […]Read more ›
Terri Lynn Land has “solutions” for Michigan manufacturing that are as empty and false as the rest of her campaign
Not. Ready. For. Prime. Time Republican Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land recently released her “solutions” for strengthening Michigan manufacturing. More accurately, she’s calling them “solutions “. However, they are so blatantly empty of content and, in some cases, downright wrong that calling them “solutions” strains the bounds of the definition of the word. You can find her “solutions” HERE, a […]Read more ›
12 million success stories and counting… You have to admire Ted Cruz’s honesty. Dude wants to repeal Obamacare and do pretty much nothing about the nearly five million uninsured Texans, except point to their bootstraps. He’s proud that his state rejected Medicare expansion, which could have covered about one million of his constituents. He does not like the ACA in […]Read more ›
Yes, this is the best Republicans have to offer Chris Christie’s Bridgegate scandal has not been shut down and it’s only getting closer to the governor. Questions about his administration’s willingness to inflict traffic on taxpayers and a tangled web of conflicts of interest involving the governor’s associates at the Port Authority remain unanswered. Now, reporting by The Nation‘s Lee […]Read more ›
David Nir at Daily Kos points out how big a flip-flopper Republican stealth candidate Terri Lynn Land is: For the second time this campaign, Republican Terri Lynn Land seems to have no idea what her position on Obamacare is. On Thursday, Land said she “applauds” Michigan’s decision to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, which might seem like a […]Read more ›
Actually, it’s more like the Koch brothers’ campaign… Terri Lynn Land can best be described as the U.S. Senate candidate in absentia. Unlike her Democratic opponent Gary Peters who has been touring the state talking to voters, Land hasn’t made public appearance in months, not one where she could be asked direct questions since she began her tepid campaign to […]Read more ›
New polling by Clarity Campaign Labs shows Democrats Mark Schauer and Gary Peters with sizable leads over Republicans Rick Snyder and Terri Lynn Land in the statewide races for Governor and U.S. Senator among likely voters. Snyder’s approval rating is now less than 40% (39%) while nearly half of the voters polled (46%) disapprove of his performance. Schauer leads him […]Read more ›
When millionaire Republicans run… Terri Lynn Land has emerged from her self-imposed exile where she isn’t required to answer any questions to speak with the voters of Michigan through a YouTube video where she isn’t required to answer any questions. The last thing Land wants is to have to answer hard questions or take firm positions. If you want to […]Read more ›
