Adam Green of the PCCC pointed out when Landrieu was handily defeated by some hack GOP nonentity Saturday that the last of the Democrats from the Republican wing of the Democratic Party who prevented the public option in the Affordable Care Act-- the others being Joe Lieberman, Ben Nelson and Blanche Lincoln-- had all been driven from office within 4 years; I think he left out Mark Pryor-- but he also lost his Senate seat last month. Good riddance to all of them. Take a look at the ProgressivePunch lifetime crucial vote scores of the half dozen Democratic Senators who have voted the most frequently against progressive values in the current session: • Tom Carper (DE)- 72.30 • Claire McCaskill (MO)- 72.13 • Kay Hagan (NC)- 70.67 defeated • Mark Pryor (AR)- 66.50 defeated • Mary Landrieu (LA)- 65.42 defeated • Joe Manchin (WV)- 61.75 - See more at:

Local photographer Maria DeForrest has been named Photographer of the Year in Delaware by Delaware Today magazine’s Fashion Awards. Winners were nominated by the public and then chosen by a panel of judges respected in the fashion industry on the East Coast. Based in Milton, DeForrest is becoming known across the country for her innovative, documentary-style wedding photography and lifestyle family photography. “I love to approach my weddings and lifestyle sessions from a documentary standpoint. It allows me to capture the unique qualities of my clients and their families in a more natural way,” said DeForrest. DeForrest’s reputation as an outstanding photographer has led many prominent public figures to engage her services for special events. She has photographed Vice President Joe Biden and Delaware Gov. Jack Markell as well as events with U.S. Sen. Tom Carper. She is also supporting Delaware’s growth of farmers markets and is a founding board member of the Milton Farmers Market. Her photograp ...
Politics Home Executive Senate House of Representatives Defense Judiciary Scandals REGULATION Social Security paid $1.3B in potentially improper disability payments, report says. The Social Security Administration made $1.3 billion in potentially improper disability payments to people who were believed to be employed when they were supposed to be unable to work, according to a Government Accountability Office report released Friday. The Government Accountability Office estimated that the agency made the potential cash benefit overpayments to about 36,000 individuals from December 2010 to January 2013. The numbers represent less than 1 percent of beneficiaries and less than 1 percent of disability payments made during the time frame. But GAO said the overpayments reveal weaknesses in Social Security's procedures for policing the system. The precise number of individuals who received improper disability payments and the exact amount of improper payments made to those recipients cannot be determined without ...
Barack Hussein Obama II (Listeni/bəˈrɑːk huːˈseɪn oʊˈbɑːmə/; born August 4, 1961) is the 44th and current President of the United States, the first African American to hold the office. Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was president of the Harvard Law Review. He was a community organizer in Chicago before earning his law degree. He worked as a civil rights attorney in Chicago and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. He served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004, running unsuccessfully for the United States House of Representatives in 2000. In 2004, Obama received national attention during his campaign to represent Illinois in the United States Senate with his victory in the March Democratic Party primary, his keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July, and his election to the Senate in November. He began his presi ...
Delighted that US Senator Tom Carper stopped by Parke Green Galleries today. I tried to not talk his ear off but...
WHAT A DAY! No walk because of the rain and that kind of makes me blue, but then something great happened. I was able to catch Rodney the Guinea Pig. He is now in a large tub with hay and food and water in the spare bathroom. Now what do I do? It would be nice to fine a family to take him in. Has been through a lot in the last 6 weeks or so, fending for himself outside. Although I provide food and water and a temporary house, I know he was cold and unhappy and probably very frightened. At the Parke Green Gallery things were happening. Senator Tom Carper came by and Mayor Carey and it was nice to see him and tell the Senator about the concept of Parke Green Galleries and The Delaware Store. Looking forward to turkey tomorrow and being busy on Friday. Come on by!

The Postal Service Outrage February 10, 2013 Dave Johnson You are probably hearing that the Post Office is “in crisis” and is cutting back Saturday delivery, laying people off, closing offices, etc. Like so many other “crises” imposed on us lately, there is a lot to the story that you are not hearing from the “mainstream” media. (Please click that link.) The story of the intentional destruction of the U.S. Postal Service is one more piece of the story of crisis-after-crisis, all manufactured to advance the strategic dismantling of our government and handing over the pieces to billionaires. Here are a few things you need to know about the Postal Service “crisis”: The Postal Service is the second largest employer in the United States after Walmart. But unlike Walmart, which gets away with paying so little that employees qualify for government assistance, the Postal Services is unionized, pays reasonable wages and benefits and receives no government subsidies. (Good for them!) Republicans hav ...

Tea Party House Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), the richest man in Congress with a net worth of $448 million, heads the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. (KSBW.com, Dec. 27, 2011) Issa is the congressional pitbull most insistent on passing postal privatization. Issa’s HR2748 bill would end Saturday delivery, replace door-to-door delivery for 40 million homes with neighborhood cluster boxes and eliminate 100,000 postal jobs. The Koch brothers contributed $107,000 to 13 Republican members of the HOGRC — $12,500 just to Issa, who sent staff members to a Koch brothers’ think tank. (Press Enterprise, Feb. 27, 2011) Issa appointed staffers to the HOGRC who are linked to lobbying firms that accepted $1.2 million from Pitney Bowes and $240,000 from FedEx.(opensecrets.org) On Aug. 2, Sen.

State Lawmakers Object to Social Security Office Move Seven downstate members of the House of Representatives have waded into the ongoing controversy over the pending move of the Social Security Administration's (SSA) Georgetown office. State Reps. Danny Short, R-Seaford; Ruth Briggs King, R-Georgetown; Ron Gray, R-Selbyville; Tim Dukes, R-Laurel; Harvey Kenton, R-Milford; Bobby Outten, R-Harrington; and Dave Wilson, R-Cedar Creek Hundred have sent a letter to Delaware's congressional delegation protesting the relocation of the office serving Sussex County. The lease is expiring on the agency's current office space and SSA officials have reportedly entered into a long-term contract for new accommodations just west of Lewes. The seven state representatives argue that it makes little sense to relocate the office from its central Sussex location to the northeast corner of the county 12 miles away. The letter summarizes the logistical benefits of keeping the office in the county seat, citing the proximity of ...

Call me insensitive, but I just don't think we need to spend money to keep people from getting fat. They argue this will decrease Medicare costs.

From left, Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) confer as the Senate Judiciary Committee meets on immigration reform on Capitol Hill in Washington on May 9. All three were in Congress in 1986, when the last immigration reform bill passed. (J. Scott Applewhite/AP) Fun fact: Twenty-one currently sitting senators voted on the 1986 immigration reform bill, the last comprehensive bill signed into law to include a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. Nine of them were already in the Senate, while 12 were in the House. You can see the 1986 Senate roll call here, and the House one here. So how constant were people’s votes? Well, 13 voted the same way both times: Sens. Tom Harkin (D-Ia.), Carl Levin (D-Mich.), Max Baucus (D-Mont.), and Jay Rockefeller (D-Wv.) voted yes in the Senate in both 1986 and 2013, while Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) voted no both times in the Senate. Then-Reps. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Tom Carper (D-Del.), Bill Nelson (D-Fl.), *** Dur ...

These elected officials has promised to secure the border and unequivocally stated that the 1986 amnesty would be the final amnesty.

Dear madeleine, Last month's election still seems kind of unbelievable. So many progressive candidates and causes won at the ballots. Voter turn out exceeded all expectations. Women will now make up a larger percentage of Congress than they ever have before. So much history was made!

We were happy to support Alan Grayson, Lois Frankel, Paul Tonko, Tom Carper and Sheldon Whitehouse in their successful campaigns. We are delighted that Patrick Murphy defeated Allen West, even though West originally refused to concede despite a clear loss. Tammy Baldwin made history as Wisconsin's first female Senator and the first openly *** Senator. Heidi Heitkamp became North Dakota's first female elected offic ial to represent the state in Congress after one of the most closely watched races in the country. Our support of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Hou ...
The Democratic senator whose committee oversees the postal service wants to finish work by June on legislation to overhaul the service. (Photo: Charles Dharapak, AP) STORY HIGHLIGHTS Carper heads panel that oversees postal service Postal service is losing $25 million a day Saturday delivery a focus of negotiatons WASHINGTON — Sen. Tom Carper has set an ambitious timetable for legislation to help save the financially struggling U.S. Postal Service. The Delaware Democrat, chairman of the Senate committee that oversees the postal service, said he wants to finish comprehensive reform legislation by the summer, before the service tries to cut costs on its own in August by eliminating Saturday mail. "If it takes us that long, we have failed miserably," Carper said. "I'm going to put all of my energy, at least a big part of my energy, in the next several months on getting us to a compromise." Last year, Carper co-authored overhaul legislation that passed the Senate 62-37, but the House did not act on its own v ...

Please share this with everyone.  At the very least read it.  Please.   To be fair, this note includes text from a reply and my thoughts concerning it.  This is not an actual exchange.   I recently sent a brief letter to my United States Senator, Tom Carper, instructing him to vote against gun control legislation.  I have just received a much more in depth reply than I am accustomed to receiving from such a communique.  In it, Senator Carper states, and I do not doubt his sincerity, that (in a nutshell) he is thinking of the families involved in the Newtown, CT murders, that we need to find a balance between our second amendment rights and keeping people safe, that his family produced muskets, that shooting his been a hobby of his and his family’s, admiration for law enforcement personnel, etc.But he goes on to say the following:     “I've long supported common-sense efforts to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the severely mentally ill. In 2004, I voted to renew the Assault Weapons ...

Sen. Tom Carper hops up on table, does 30 push-ups at Kent County campaign event.
"The House, meanwhile, declined to take up two major bipartisan bills from the Senate. ... The other was aimed at reviving the teetering U.S. Postal Service, which is about to default again. “I hear from our Republican colleagues they didn’t want to force their folks to make difficult votes,” said Tom Carper, a lead Senate sponsor." (Gail Collins, NY Times, 9/21) What do the postal workers' unions that endorsed Michael Grimm think about that? From that same column: "Really, there’s no excuse on this one. By the time a difficult issue has been turned into a bipartisan Senate bill, it’s no longer all that difficult. People, if you see a member of the House majority campaigning in your neighborhood, demand to know why the Postal Service didn’t get fixed."

Sherrod Brown voted against labeling food with GMOs in it.

If you're concerned about eating healthy food, you probably know you're choices are under attack again. Last week the Senate defeated, 26-73, an amendment to the Agriculture bill that would permit states to "require that any food, beverage, or other edible product offered for sale have a label on indicating that the food, beverage, or other edible product contains a genetically engineered ingredient." Only one Republican, independent-minded Lisa Murkowski voted to allow labeling.
