Seven members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus voted NO on making the Bush tax cuts permanent for Americans making over $250,000 a year. In the Senate, Tom Harkin stood up and said that permanent extension of the Bush tax cuts was an absolute deal breaker. They all deserve our thanks.

Sen. Tom Harkin (D IA) schools America: To consider $400,000 to be of middle class status, or even $250,000 is absurd.
Democratic Senators who voted against the recent Deal: Tom Harkin, Michael Bennet, and Thomas Carper.
Only 8 Senators voted against this monstrosity of a budget bill, and only 5 of those were Republicans. Michael Bennet (D-CO) Tom Carper (D-DE) Chuck Grassley (R-IA) Tom Harkin (D-IA) Mike Lee (R-UT) Rand Paul (R-KY) Marco Rubio (R-FL) Richard Shelby (R-AL) Take a good look at those 5 Republican names. Those are your good guys, people, and this list isn’t all that surprising. Rubio, Paul, Lee, Grassley, and Shelby. I'm liking a Paul-Rubio ticket... I've always said I'd like to vote for Rand Paul... משה
Three Democrats voted against the bill: Tom Harkin of Iowa, Tom Carper of Delaware and Michael Bennet of Colorado. They were joined by Republicans Charles Grassley of Iowa, Rand Paul of Kentucky, Marco Rubio of Florida and Richard Shelby of Alabama.
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 ...
“No deal is better than a bad deal.” - Tom Harkin, D-Iowa on the Fiscal Cliff negotiations. Taking door from Wayne Brady Would be better!
God bless Tom Harkin. 1 reason for optimism: in a few days, he'll be joined by Warren, Baldwin. Holding left flank for bad deal gets harder.
No "fiscal cliff" vote tonight Reid said negotiations will continue, but the acknowledgement that they will not strike a deal in time for the Senate to vote tonight comes just over an hour after Senate Republicans said they were dropping a sticking point that Democrats said today was a "major setback" in negotiations to avert the so-called "fiscal cliff" by Jan. 1. Assistant Senate Majority Leader *** Durbin, D-Ill., and Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, told the Wall Street Journal that the most recent offers from the two parties are separated by about $100,000; Democrats propose raising taxes on couples whose incomes exceed $450,000, and Republicans want to extend the Bush-era tax cuts on couples whose incomes are less than $550,000. Durbin said the only new spending in the Democratic offer would be extensions of expanded jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed, and of a current law which allows companies to easily write off equipment investments. Exiting a conference meeting this afternoon, Sens. John Mc ...

Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): An Unvarnished Voice: Washington suffers from the problem “of people who have money not understanding what it’s like not to have money,” Sen. Bernard Sanders said. “Mr. Sanders intends to make people understand,” a New York Times profile declared. “Sanders represents the majority of our caucus” when he fights cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, Sen. Tom Harkin said in the article. Sanders Confronts White House Aide: At a private lunch meeting on Thursday with members of the Senate Democratic Caucus, Sen. Sanders bluntly told White House economic adviser Gene Sperling to make sure that Social Security benefits aren’t cut and that Obama doesn’t raise the eligibility age for Medicare as part of any deficit-reduction deal. Sanders said such ideas would be a “disaster,” other senators told Politico afterward. Asked if Sperling alleviated his concerns, Sanders would only give a one-word response. “No,” he said.

Iowa Democratic Party Chair Sue Dvorsky Announces She Will Not Seek Another Term Sen. Tom Harkin, Democratic Party allies celebrate successful partnership with IDP Chair and Executive Director Des Moines -- The Iowa Democratic Party today announced that Sue Dvorsky will not seek another term as Chair of the Iowa Democratic Party. The final day of her current term will be January 26, 2013. Executive Director Norm Sterzenbach also announced that he will also be leaving the Iowa Democratic Party in the coming months to pursue other professional opportunities. The official announcement regarding the departure of the two esteemed party leaders was made during this morning’s State Central Committee (SCC) meeting in Des Moines. Senator Tom Harkin was in attendance for the announcement. Sue Dvorsky has served as the Chair since 2010, and Sterzenbach has served as Executive Director since 2009.

Bill Clinton Nomination Speech 1992: Such a GREAT Speech! Governor Richards, Chairman Brown, Mayor Dinkins, our great host, my fellow delegates and my fellow Americans, I am so proud of Al Gore. He said he came here tonight because he always wanted to do the warm-up for Elvis. Well, I ran for President this year for one reason and one reason only: I wanted to come back to this convention and finish that speech I started four years ago. Last night Mario Cuomo taught us how a real nominating speech should be given. He also made it clear why we have to steer our ship of state on a new course. Tonight I want to talk with you about my hope for the future, my faith in the American people, and my vision of the kind of country we can build together. I salute the good men who were my companions on the campaign trial: Tom Harkin , Bob Kerrey , Doug Wilder , Jerry Brown , and Paul Tsongas . One sentence in the Platform we built says it all.

Why Would Mike Lee, Pat Toomey And 35 Other Senators Send A Letter To Harry Reid Asking To Delay A Vote On A Treaty That Surrenders Our Sovereignty To The United Nations? You don't need to be a Washington insider to figure it out. Even though there are supposedly 47 Republicans in the Senate, Lee and Toomey know that they still lack the paltry 34 votes in the Senate needed to stop this threat to our sovereignty. And Lee and Toomey aren't the only ones who know it. Late last week, Senators *** Durbin and Tom Harkin, utilizing a parliamentary trick, tried to sneak the so-called UN Convention of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Treaty (UNCRPD) onto the floor of the Senate for a quickie vote. Why did they do it? Just as Lee and Toomey knew that they still lacked the 34 measly votes to stop UNCRPD outright, Durbin and Harkin moved because your 14,000-plus faxes and righteously irate calls were starting to have the desired effect and that support for UNCRPD was steadily eroding. But Durbin and Harkin's ...
I like Tom Harkin! Iowans, please get rid of Republican Rep. Steve King. Among other things, he sees nothing wrong with dog fighting!
Why would Democratic Senator Tom Harkin vote against a bill stopping foreign aid to the countries of Egypt, Pakistan and Libya until they release the identities of those involved in the attacks on our embassies and the release of Dr. Shakil Afridi, the man credited with a huge sum of intel in identifying Osama's final location? Even Grassley who I dislike voted to stop the aid, showing that he has some spine left. Tom Harkin on the other hand needs to reevaluate his priorities. In fact, not a single Democrat Senator voted for the bill. Sad.
A harmful bill (S. 3525) was just introduced in the Senate that, if passed, would undo years of protection for polar bears, and would continue to put millions of animals and people at risk for lead poisoning. The so-called "Sportsmen's Act of 2012" seeks to indulge a small group of wealthy trophy hunters who want to import sport-hunted polar bear trophies from Canada just to have a head or hide of this threatened animal in their living room; and strip the Environmental Protection Agency of its ability to protect wildlife and people from lead poisoning. This dangerous and costly bill would encourage more killing of endangered and threatened species around the globe, and would block wildlife professionals from making decisions based on sound science. This bill could be voted on as early as today. Please make a brief, polite phone call now to your Senators Chuck Grassley (202) 224-3744 and Tom Harkin (202) 224-3254, and urge them to oppose S. 3525. And don't forget to send a follow-up message.

The Democratic Party’s 2012 platform calls for raising the minimum wage and pegging it to inflation — and a wage bill already introduced by congressional Democrats could cost at least 256,000 jobs, according to a new report. Sen. Tom Harkin of Iowa and Rep. Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut have proposed raising the federal minimum wage in three stages to $9.80 per hour — an increase of 35 percent over the current level — and then annually raising the wage based on inflation. The bill also stipulates that employers should pay 70 percent of the full minimum to workers who receive tip income, an increase of 200 percent. “Earlier studies have projected at least 467,000 lost jobs following a wage hike of this magnitude,” according to the report from the Employment Policies Institute (EPI). “Accounting for the smaller labor force post-recession, job losses in the range of 256,000 to 768,000 are projected based on results found in earlier economic literature.” The EPI is a nonprofit research organizat ...
Tom Harkin on Senate floor lying about Paul Ryan's budget. He also said ever since PR came to Congress he wanted to get rid of Medicare.
I wish there was some way we could "pin down" the democrat senate and house members who are Catholic. I'd love to know how they voted on the 3 votes taken to put God back in the platform. How about Pelosi? Kerry? Here is the list of D's in the senate who are supposedly Catholic: Roman Catholic -Mark Begich (D-Alaska), Maria Cantwell (D-Washington), Bob Casey, Jr. (D-Pennsylvania), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Richard Durbin (D-Illinois), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York), Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), John Kerry (D-Massachusetts), Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana), Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia), Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri), Bob Menendez (D-New Jersey), Barbara Mikulski (D-Maryland), Patty Murray (D-Washington), Jack Reed (D-Rhode Island). I have no idea how many in the house, but even this list... how can we pin them down to find out how they voted?

Following a two-year investigation, the U.S. Senate Committee on Health, Labor, Education and Pensions [HELP] yesterday released a dense and damning report on the for-profit college industry. While the committee, chaired by Sen. Tom Harkin [D-Iowa], acknowledged the changing face of post-secondary education, and the need for flexible schedules and coursework, it concludes that for-profit colleges are asking “students with modest financial resources to take a big risk by enrolling in high-tuition schools.” The report is thousands of pages long and investigates 30 for-profit colleges. It’s packed with statistics and information gleaned from internal documents.

With millions of aging baby boomers wringing their hands over their meager savings, Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, has come out with a plan to give all Americans access to a defined benefit pension.
For all you lovers of Obama. Hope you are proud that he wants to add a 1% charge on all bank transactions after the elections. Notice the word ALL. Deposits, withdrawals, everything gets taxed at 1%. Oh wait. I forgot. The new word used now is a fee, not a tax. They will tax your SS check, your paycheck when you deposit it and as you spend it. They already tax the dead as well, so dying don't get you out of taxes either. Why not take it all and let the government give us what they think we need. WRONG WRONG WRONG. Check it out people. HR 4646 introduced by two Democrats; US Rep Peter deFazio D-Oregon and US Senator Tom Harkin D-Iowa. Don't you just love it. One party wants to tax and fee us to death and the other wants the rich to ride on the backs of the working class. You want to be rich, do the work to get that way. I just want to be comfortable and enjoy my life. So Washington, get your hand out of my *** pocket.
I'm currently writing an article about how, according to some politicans (Tom Harkin), for-profit colleges largely feed into national student loan debt and force many students to drop out because of expensive tuiton prices.

Or do you know anyone personally who has faced student loan debt? Thanks :)

First we had Mayor Bloomberg trying to lock up infant formula so mothers would nurse their children "because it's better for them" and now we have Democrat Senator Tom Harkin pushing the Obamacare bill for the following reason: “There are many women who take birth control pills, for example, because they have terrible menstrual cramps once a month, some of them almost incapacitated, can’t work,” said Harkin. “I know of young women myself who, because of this, aren’t able to work and be productive, and it’s prescribed by their doctor.” Well, thank heavens Tom Harkin is unafraid to play women like checkers in his argument for socialized medicine and his attack on freedom of religion. I don't know how women would deal with breastfeeding their children or their menstrual cycles if old men like Bloomberg and Harkin weren't there to guide them. (This is Dana Loesch's take on this which I say is pretty funny!)

The COINS Act would require Federal Reserve Banks to stop issuing the $1 note four years after enactment of the legislation or when circulation of $1 coins exceeds 600 million annually – whichever comes first. The companion bill to the COINS Act in the House was introduced by Congressman David Schweikert of Arizona with the bipartisan support of fourteen co-sponsors.
