'Holy tax scams, Batman': Kansas Democrat speaks truth to 'school choice' grifters

Republicans in Kansas always have a good plan—well, a good plan if you have more than $500,000 you don’t want to see taxed. This year, Kansas HB 2048—brought to the table by state Rep. Adam Thomas—offers a new twist to Kansas residents who’ve got a lot of money and taxes to dodge: Commit that money to a charity that funds private education and we’ll...

Right-wing terrorism fueled by Trump doesn't only focus on Democrats. Republicans are also targets

Some in the news media seem to be prematurely jumping all over themselves to declaim Donald Trump’s alleged “weakness” going into the 2024 GOP primary. Others, perhaps to avoid ending up with egg on their faces in a few months, have taken a more cautious approach. The latest assessment from The New York Times is typical of the latter: “He remains the...

Don Jr. railed against 'political elite' who never worked in low wage jobs like he did

Donald Trump Jr. is still a thing. He uncomfortably sells Trump steaks and stuff. He also has a podcast or something resembling a digital interview show called Triggered. The title is a reference to how he triggers people. It is also the name of his sad attempt at being noticed by his narcissistic father. In a video uploaded two days before publishing...

Republican governor who vetoed anti-trans sports bill signs anti-trans health care bill into law

Republican Gov. Spencer Cox signed an anti-trans bill SB 0016 into law on Saturday, making Utah the first state in 2023 to ban safe and age-appropriate gender-affirming health care for trans youth so far, as reported by CBS News.

Congress failed to renew child tax credits. Now, we need these 15 states to lead the way

In 2021, Democrats in Congress expanded the child tax credit when they passed the American Rescue Plan Act to provide critical resources for American families.

HuffPost reports that the chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, Rep. Steven Horsford of Nevada, said Sunday that Nichols’ mother, RowVaughn Wells, and stepfather, Rodney Wells, had accepted the...

Biden admin fights back on Republicans' blatant window shopping of anti-immigrant judges

The not-so-secretive tool in the anti-immigration force’s toolbox sabotaging immigration policies and related changes by the Biden administration has been its use of the federal judiciary. It’s simple, but effective. Republicans, frequently led by very corrupt Texas attorney Ken Paxton, shop for GOP judges, often those appointed by the insurrectionist...

Iowa House Republicans introduce bill to ban abortion pills in state

Iowa House Republicans are attempting to make abortion drugs illegal to “manufacture, distribute, prescribe, dispense, sell or transfer” in the state after the Biden administration announced its efforts to support and protect patients, providers, and pharmacies that want to access such pills. The bill, titled House File 146, will not include penalties...
