How do we elect real progressives to replace tea partiers like Senators Pat Toomey (PA), Marco Rubio (FL), and Ron Johnson (WI)? How do we hold Democrats accountable so we don't get a repeat of the 11th hour, must-pass spending bill further undermining our democracy and loaded with gifts to Wall Street? As Russ Feingold would say, we unite. Heading into a stretch where it will be absolutely imperative to get President Obama's back when he opposes bad deals in Congress -- and with so many high-stakes races on the horizon -- Progressives United is the only organization dedicated to uniting us all to make our voices stronger. In order to meet the big challenges progressives face, we must meet Progressives United's $25,000 grassroots organizing goal by the end of the year. Contribute $3 today. Even before we saw the horrible spending bill, Bernie Sanders told Progressives United members that we know what "compromise" will mean now that Republicans control both chambers of Congress: "their way or the highway." ...
Hillary no "Shoe In" The Democratic Party debates among presidential candidates -- expected to start in May or June of 2015 -- pose a serious threat to Hillary Clinton's candidacy. Her ability to suck up all the oxygen in the party's universe so far has succeeded in denying all but the most perfunctory coverage to her opponents. But the debates will change all that. Democrats who oppose deeper involvement in Iraq or who scorn the crony capitalism of the Wall Street-Treasury Department-Federal Reserve-White House relationship will find their views echoed by the likes of former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb; Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent; and Gov. Martin O'Malley of Maryland. These leftist alternatives to Clinton will gain traction, when the average Democrat gets to see and hear them in the presidential debates. David Axelrod, who served as chief adviser to President Obama, made the astute observation that the sense of inevitability surrounding the former secretary of State's bid for the 2016 nominati ...

TODAY IN ONE PARAGRAPH: The Senate confirmed Sylvia Mathews Burwell's nomination as secretary of Health and Human Services with Republican support. President Obama says he won't apologize for the prisoner exchange to recover Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, and the White House reportedly refused to check with Congress about the exchange because the Taliban threatened to kill Bergdahl if news of the deal became public. General Motors fired 15 people over its ignition-switch problems that led to a major recall. Sens. Bernie Sanders and John Mccain made a deal to combine two Veterans Affairs bills into one.

Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): Road Funds: Sen. Bernie Sanders said on Sunday that a bill passed by a Senate panel would bring nearly $1.3 billion to Vermont over six years to repair roads and bridges. The U.S. Senate public works committee passed the $265 billion transportation funding bill Thursday, The Associated Press reported in an article published by the Burlington Free Press, Brattleboro Reformer, Bennington Banner and Valley News. The investment will not only improve roads, Sanders said, but rebuilding America also creates more jobs and strengthens the economy,” WFFF-TV and WVNY-TV reported. VA Health Care: Whistle-blowers claim that up to 40 veterans died while awaiting treatment at the VA hospital in Phoenix and that administrators there, and at seven other VA hospitals, tried to cover up the long wait times.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and much of the left, are praising President Obama's budget today because he has dropped his proposal to cut Social Security via Chained CPI.
Randall, We need you to join us to call on President Obama to keep Social Security cuts out of his budget! Join 50,000 people who have already taken action telling President Obama that we need to expand--not cut--our Social Security system. Thank you, Michael Phelan Social Security Works Take Action Make sure the Chained CPI stays gone. Randall, Last year, President Obama put a Social Security cut called the Chained CPI in his budget. A lot has happened since then. Americans from all political stripes are calling for Social Security to be expanded—not cut. The question is: will President Obama listen? Sign our petition to President Obama: No cuts to our earned Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid benefits in your budget or State of the Union Address. We will join our voices with Sen. Bernie Sanders who said, “I certainly hope that the president has learned a lesson from this whole process.

Budget Bill Sent to White House: The Senate on Wednesday evening passed and sent to President Obama a budget that averts another government shutdown, eases sharp spending cuts known as sequestration and spares Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid from proposed cuts in benefits. In what he called a difficult decision, Sen. Bernie Sanders voted with the 64 - 36 majority to pass the budget. He voiced disappointment that it does nothing to create jobs and continues tax breaks for profitable corporations. His decision to vote for the bill boiled down to a choice between the “lesser of two evils,” Sanders said in an interview minutes after the vote with MSNBC’s Ed Schultz. Watch the interview:
Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): NSA is ‘Out of Control’: President Obama is poised to order the National Security Agency to stop eavesdropping on the leaders of American allies, administration and congressional officials said on Monday. Sen. Bernie Sanders called the spy agency “out of control” during a Monday interview with National Public Radio’s John Hockenberry. “How are we going to have the kind of cooperation that we need when there is massive mistrust of the United States for this type of spying?” Sanders asked in response to reports that the agency targeted the cellphone of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and eavesdropped on other world leaders.

Today's news from Sen.

Maxine Waters, Bernie Sanders & you too Ed needs to stop doubting President Obama. This behavior gave us a Republican House in 2010
Sequestration: President Obama and congressional leaders failed Friday to reach agreement on how to avoid the first round of sequestration cuts that will total $85 billion by Sept. 30. Interviewed Friday on The Thom Hartmann Program, Sen. Bernie Sanders called the cuts “a real tragedy” that will hurt education, environmental protection and other important programs. Republicans in Congress, Sanders added, “are absolutely adamant that they will not ask the wealthy and large corporations to pay a nickel more in taxes and the only way they want to do deficit reduction is by cutting, cutting, cutting.” Keystone Pipeline: The State Department issued a revised environmental impact statement for the 1,700-mile pipeline on Friday that makes no recommendation about whether the project should be built but presents no conclusive environmental reason it should not be, The New York Times reported.
I appreciate that Bernie Sanders, among others, continues to speak out against this, but I think unless we hit the White House hard with a phone campaign, the Keystone Pipeline is a done deal. After all, the Secretary of State, John Kerry, is Obama's second nominee to have a severe economic conflict of interest, as he holds shares that will explode with approval of the pipeline. Susan Rice was in a similar position. I think the President's position on this is pretty clear, and the eco-talk in the State of the Union was just so much lip service. Here's what Senator Bernie Sanders has to say about it: “No one who is serious about protecting the future of our planet and reversing Global Warming could support this pipeline project. Tar sands oil is the dirtiest on Earth, and the Environmental Protection Agency has said clearly that tar sands production releases 82 percent more greenhouse gas emissions than conventional oil. “President Obama spoke eloquently in his Inaugural Address and State of the Un ...
President Obama and congressional leaders met Friday at the White House without agreeing on an alternative to $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts. Sen. Bernie Sanders called it “a real tragedy” and said the cuts could “contract the economy in the midst of a terrible recession” and cost the...
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., doesn't think much of a Senate Republican proposal to cancel the $85 billion in automatic sequester cuts and give President Obama the authority to make the cuts himself.
The Week in Review: The need to create jobs and help working families still struggling to recover from a terrible recession are themes that Sen. Bernie Sanders hopes President Obama emphasizes in next Tuesday’s State of the Union Address. The senator discussed his hopes for Obama’s second term in a Monday interview with PBS’s Tavis Smiley. On Wednesday, Sanders said Congress should block a U.S. Postal Service plan to stop delivering letters on Saturdays. And on Thursday, Sanders introduced legislation to help balance the budget and create American jobs by closing loopholes that let businesses shelter income in offshore tax havens. The senator discussed the Postal Service and tax havens in a Friday radio interview. Continue reading here:
Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): Close Corporate Tax Loopholes: Sen. Bernie Sanders on Thursday plans to introduce legislation to raise $590 billion over a decade by closing tax sheltering techniques used by big companies, Reuters reported. The article said Senate Democrats are divided about how to revamp the tax code, which has not been overhauled since 1986. Protect Social Security: Sen. Chris *** has lined up bipartisan support for his proposal to give startup companies a payroll tax credit for research and development costs. *** proposal could face opposition from the liberal wing of the Democratic Caucus.

Sen. Bernie Sanders continues to be one of the stand-up guys in the Senate with telling it straight when it comes to the fact that Social Security does not add a dime to our deficit and that if President Obama wants to do something about the deficit, he needs to be cutting that corporate welfare, in...
Ok, let's get a few things straight. This is what happened today. President Obama, through Joe Biden, began the day working toward a deal with Mitch Mcconnell that would avert the cliff, but in so doing would up the tax rate cutoff from $250,000 to $400,000 or so dollars. The immediate reaction from the left (Dems in Congress, pundits, Huffpost, Paul Krugman, Bernie Sanders, etc) was that President Obama was caving to the Republicans. And he was. But, that's what he decided was best, and he had to get Democrats in Congress to fall in line to get the compromise deal pushed through. So he called a press conference with what was termed Middle Class Americans standing behind him, and he talked up how important it was to those standing behind him that we get a deal passed. That press conference was directed toward the Democrats in the Congress who were objecting to the deal that had been cut (Tom Harkin had voiced opposition and said that he'd oppose a vote in the Senate. The Senate runs based on unani ...
The Week in Review With spending cuts and tax increases set to take effect on Jan. 1 unless Congress acts, the Senate made plans to return to Washington two days after Christmas. Members of the House of Representatives streamed out of the Capitol on Thursday after Speaker John Boehner was confronted with a conservative revolt by his own extreme right-wing troops. The speaker scrubbed plans for what would have been a doomed vote on his plan to extend Bush-era tax cuts for all incomes up to $1 million. “The Republican caucus is in chaos,” Sen. Bernie Sanders said Friday on his weekly radio and Internet program. It was unclear what would become of a tentative agreement that emerged earlier in the week from talks between President Obama and Boehner. A provision in that tentative deal would cut benefits for Social Security and disabled veterans. Sanders was a leading voice in opposition to that proposal. “The American people are saying let's do deficit reduction, but do it in a way that is fair,” the s ...
It's good that small business is beginning to realize that the multinational corps and chamber of commerce are not on their side-they're using the Fed to game the system. Likewise, the rules put in place so that Too Big Too Fail can exist are crushing small local Credit Unions and banks, who were never the problem, but must deal with the massive and complicated rules the globals lobby for, even though they'll never be able to employ the loopholes the globalists want. "Advocates for small businesses are challenging the motives of chief executives from major U.S. firms who will meet Wednesday with President Obama to discuss efforts to avert the "fiscal cliff." Small businesses worry that the CEOs of General Electric, Honeywell and IBM may sell them out. Some conservative lobbyists are even circulating documents that criticize the corporate chiefs as "tax dodgers" on the grounds that their companies avoid paying federal corporate taxes." Bernie Sanders. Patriot much? Or only for show?
The best that Boehner could come up with last Friday was more vagary of the kind that trademarked Mitt Romney's no-details plan to cure America. 'I don't want to box myself in and I don't want to box anyone else in," Boehner said. No different than he did before the election, the speaker is opposing tax increases, saying they would slow a struggling economy. He also argued that a temporary agreement should be discussed in the lame duck Congress. The only independent candidate in the U.S. Senate, Bernie Sanders who caucuses with Democrats, took on Speaker Boehner directly, saying the notion that because Republicans still control the House that's a mandate to protect the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy is a ludicrous argument. "Well, I think the objective facts disagree with that assertion. The Democrats gained two seats in the Senate, did better than anyone dreamed. The Democrats gained more votes in the House, gained a few seats in the House. President Obama won a resounding electoral college victory and wo ...
I would like to thank Al Gore, Ed Schultze, Bruce Springsteen, Nate Silver, Chenk Uynger, Bernie Sanders, Matt Damon, Bill Clinton, Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, NPR, Elizabeth Warren, the People of Ohio, the People of Pennsylvania, Tom Morello and every strong, intelligent woman who saw the writing on the wall and voted down oppression in favor of progress! I would also like to thank President Obama and his Family for tolerating and rising above the offensive and insulting, derogatory and racially motivated vitriol with a class and poise befitting a First Family!

Way to go Sherrod Brown. Way to go Maria Cantwell and Washington state (for voting to allow same-sex marriage and to legalize marijuana for all uses). Way to go Claire Mccaskill (for shutting that whole Todd Akin thing down).
Sept. 18: Mitt Romney is digging in his heels over the comments he made at a high-priced fundraiser earlier this year. President Obama addressed the comments on camera for the first time. Ed Schultz talks with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., to explain what this tells us about Mitt Romney.
Bernie Sanders shared a link. Yesterday. Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): Health Center: The health center added a $1.2 million building that will house more mental health services. "We don't have enough psychiatrists getting into rural America. We gotta work on tha t, but this clearly is a step forward in dealing with what is clearly a serious issue especially in the middle of a recession," Sen. Sanders told The Associated Press. Homeless Shelter: The Good Samaritan House in St. Albans will re-open today. Last year, Gov. Shumlin announced the housing shelter received $600,000 for renovations. Rep. Peter Welch and Sen.

Sen. Bernie Sanders: "My hope is to make Vermont a model for what a progressive grass-roots campaign can be." "Please donate today to support our progressive grass-roots campaign! Let me say a word about the national campaign. In the midst of all of the campaign hoopla, media superficiality, negativity and downright lies, it’s important for progressives not to forget what this election is all about. Today we are confronted with a Republican Party which, in the last few years, has become a right-wing extremist party. This is a party which, as a result of the disastrous Citizens United Supreme Court decision, is significantly financed by a small number of extremely wealthy individuals. Billionaires like the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson have pledged to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to defeat President Obama -- and Senate and House candidates throughout the country who are fighting to protect middle-class and working families. These billionaires own coal companies, oil companies, gambling casi ...
In a week with more political rhetoric than usual, Sen. Bernie Sanders offered facts to counter the fiction in Republican assaults on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. At the Republican National Convention, wealt hy donors hobnobbed Wednesday on a yacht flying a flag of the Cayman Islands, the tax haven where Mitt Romney and other wealthy individuals shelter their fortunes to avoid paying U.S. taxes. President Obama weighed in on Wednesday for a Constitutional Amendment to undo Citizens United. In the Senate, Sanders is the sponsor of an amendment to reverse the Supreme Court decision that let business and billionaires bankroll (mostly Republican) campaigns. Meanwhile, several states (with Republican governors) have put new laws on the books to discourage voting by young and old and poor people. A federal court on Thursday struck down one such an anti-democratic law in Texas. A Government Accountability Office investigation, which was requested by Sanders, is looking at similar laws in other states. ...
Winning the Middle Class "Given Mitt Romney's business record as an outsourcer and tax avoider, and his desire to continue the failed economic policies of George W. Bush, President Obama should be 20 points ahead in the polls right now, not struggling to stay even," wrote Sen. Bernie Sanders in an op-ed for USA Today.
Sen. Bernie Sanders is praising President Obama's support for his Constitutional Amendment and movement to overturn Citizens United.
"I applaud President Obama for expressing support for a serious effort to restore the democratic foundations of our country that are under severe attack as a result of the disastrous Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United," Sen. Bernie Sanders said on Thursday.
President Obama made some big news today by announcing that he supports a Constitutional Amendment like the one proposed by Bernie Sanders to overturn Citizens United.
You'll hear a lot of Romney supporters (including Romney himself, as he is his own biggest supporter) say that President Obama could have gotten any laws he wanted passed in his first two years as he had a super majority in both chambers of Congress. A super majority in the Senate is 60 votes and is needed in order to avoid a filibuster*. Take a look at the chart below and tell us just when Obama had 60 Democratic votes all locked up. Tell us when he could have counted on the two Independents (Lieberman and the awesome Bernie Sanders) to fall in line. For that matter, tell us when he could have gotten all of the Democrats to fall in line (and then tell that to John Boehner who's had a bit of difficulty with his own party "faithful."). Tell us that Teddy Kennedy should have gotten in to vote when he was dying of brain cancer. Tell us that Robert Byrd, who was near death years before the 111th Congress even started, should have done the sam e. (They both passed away during the 111th) And then tell us that w ...
From Joe Biden and President Obama to Bernie Sanders, Harry Reid and Alan Grayson the new tough talking Democrats who won't stand down or apologize are truly impressive and are giving me new hope for a party that used to sit back and watch as the Republican thugs walked all over them. The game HAS changed and the Democrats are winning in the war of words mostly because they have substance, reason and common sense to back up their tough talk. The Republicans have nothing to offer except ill will for the common people and special treatment for their aristocracy - good luck with that.
