Washington, DC - United States Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) today introduced the Equal Employment for All Act with Senators Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.). The legislation would prohibit employers from requiring potential employees to disclose their credit history as part of the job application process. It was previously thought that credit history may provide insight into an individual's character, but research has shown that an individual's credit rating has little to no correlation with his or her ability to be successful in the workplace. "A bad credit rating is far more often the result of unexpected medical costs, unemployment, economic downturns, or other bad breaks than it is a reflection on an individual's character or abilities," Senator Warren said. "Families have not fully recovered from the 2008 financial crisis, and too many Americans are still searching f ...
I keep confusing Sherrod Brown and Sheldon Whitehouse, but then, I'm not sure they're really all that different.
Jewelz May 13, 2013 at 11:26 am I am looking forward to the joint press conference between president Obama and prime minister Cameron. I think it will be epic to watch the president school these *** without mercy. What time is the presser? I’ve read on this site and some other democratic sites where people questioned why we don’t often see democrats on TV defending this president or his policies. Well, based on my observations, there are a lot of people in the Democratic Party that are extremely jealous of PBO and his accomplishments. When then Senator Obama decided to run for president, some democrats were okay with him running but they never thought he had much of a chance against Hillary Clinton to win the nomination. Only a handful of democrats in congress believed that he could do it, and they mostly consisted of *** Durbin, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Bob Casey, Claire Mccaskill, Jack Reed, Ken Salazer, Sherrod Brown, Sheldon Whitehouse, Jesse Jackson Jr., Jan Schakowsky, Neil Abercrombie, and ...
Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): 113th Congress: Vice President Joe Biden administered the Senate Oath to Sen. Bernard Sanders during a swearing-in ceremony Thursday on Capitol Hill in Washington, The Associated Press and WPTZ-TV reported. Senate Progressives: The progressive movement sees the 2013 class of liberal senators as a historic opportunity to shift the Democratic Party to the left. Four progressive incoming senators join Sherrod Brown, Sheldon Whitehouse, Sanders, Jeff Merkley and Al Franken, CBS News reported online. Elizabeth Warren is “left of Bernie Sanders on some issues,” Politico’s Jonathan Allen said on MSNBC. Fiscal Fallout: Sen. Bernie Sanders was critical of the compromise despite voting in favor of it. “It’s not a good piece of legislation by any means,” he said. “I gave some thought to voting against it, but upon reflection, it’s clear to me that the alternative would have been a lot worse.” At the very least, Sanders said, the compromise spared middl ...
If it's good enough for Bernie Sanders, Sheldon Whitehouse and Sherrod Brown, it's good enough for progressives all.
Forget John Boehner's "mandate" - I'd say the senate democrats can claim the mandate instead!!! Claire Mccaskill won by 12 points, Bill Nelson by 14 points Sherrod Brown, Sheldon Whitehouse, Ben Cardin, Bob Casey and Bernie all declared winners as well! (Bernie's at his highest % to date at 74%!) Jon Tester is leading in Montana. not enough of the vote counted yet. Tammy Baldwin is up by 4.2% with 79% of the vote in! North Dakota is incredibly close but Heidi is 1.6% up with 94% of the vote in! Nevada is still in play - too early to tell. Indiana, Maine and Massachusetts are now in Democratic hands. Imagine Elizabeth Warren as a Senator! And we have re-elected Barack Obama! All in all, a good night!
Sherrod Brown, Sheldon Whitehouse, and Bill Nelson projected to win. George Allen clinging to narrow lead in VA. Solid night for
I support Sherrod Brown as Senator. I've talked to him personally and he understands where the problems lay for local communities and states. I supported Sheldon Whitehouse as Senator when I lived in Rhode Island. They get it. Something these young republicans don't get. Even many of the older republicans don't get. Goverment is not like a checking account on your home budget where you have to pay your bills every month. Goverment is not a business. Without a federal goverment state and local communities can not survive and grow. When they fail many things fail.
On Monday, the Senate will vote to decide whether billionaires and massive corporations can keep dumping unlimited money into races across the country without ever disclosing their identities. A broad coalition is forming, including my fellow Senators Michael Bennet (CO), Barbara Boxer (CA), Sherrod Brown (OH), *** Durbin (IL), Al Franken (MN), Claire Mccaskill (MO), Jeff Merkley (OR), Patty Murray (WA), Bill Nelson (FL), Chuck Schumer (NY), Jeanne Shaheen (NH), Jon Tester (MT), Tom Udall (NM), Sheldon Whitehouse (RI), and Progressives United. We're joining together to make sure voters know who's pumping money into their airwaves. Will you join us? Click here to sign the petition in favor of the DISCLOSE Act before Monday's vote. Groups like Karl Rove's Crossroads GPS are currently flying under the radar by calling themselves "social welfare" groups. That's not what I'd call an organization dedicated to running vicious attack ads, but that's what they're claiming. They're using this loophole to conceal t ...
