Violence Against Women Act: John Boehner, Eric Cantor Pressured By Republicans To Act


I hope this is an indicator that the Republicans will finally kick the Tea Party and Moral Majority to the curb and start rebuilding the Grand Old Party.

Elizabeth Warren Wins Senate Banking Committee Seat: Sources


This is some of the best news that I have heard all day. This woman helped create the Consumer Protection Agency to fight against the corruption that has befallen our banking industry. Wall Street’s worst nightmares are coming to life in a very real way. All of that money they spent to keep her out of the Senate was for nothing.
