Five Ways Republicans Have Sabotaged Job Growth

Jeff Spross, ThinkProgress: "Republican intransigence on economic policy has been a key contributor to the sluggish recovery. As early as 2009, Republican fear-mongering over spending and their readiness to filibuster in the Senate helped convince the White House economic team that an $800 billion stimulus was the most they could hope to get through Congress. Reporting has since revealed that the team thought the country actually needed a stimulus on the order of $1.2 to $1.8 trillion. The economy’s path over the next three years proved them right."

Con Ed Locks Out 8,500 Workers as Summer Heat Wave Hits

Mike Elk, In These Times: "On Sunday, after the 8,500 members of Utility Workers Union of America (UWUA) Local 1-2 in New York City refused to agree to concessions, Con Ed responded by locking them out of work, creating one of the largest lockouts in recent memory. But it will be a real test for Con Ed to see just how long they are able to keep their workers locked out as a massive heat wave hits the city and its power system threatens to buckle."

California Legislature Approves Resolution Opposing Citizens United Ruling

SACRAMENTO, Calif. /California Newswire/ — California today became the largest state in the nation urging Congress to draft a constitutional amendment to overturn the U.S. Supreme Court’s controversial Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission ruling. AJR 22 by Wieckowski and Allen seeks to restore balance to campaign finance spending.

The state Senate voted 24 to 11 to approve Assembly Joint Resolution 22, authored by Assemblymembers Bob Wieckowski (D-Fremont) and Michael Allen (D-Sonoma). The 2010 court ruling ignored long-standing precedent and allows corporations and unions to spend unlimited amounts of money to support or oppose candidates. The state Assembly passed the resolution in March.

Mr. Romney Changes His Mind, Again

 

Massachusetts residents who file a state tax return have to provide proof that they have health insurance. If they can afford insurance but don’t have it, they must “pay a penalty through their tax returns,” according to the state Department of Revenue’s Web site.

This is all thanks to former Gov. Mitt Romney, who set up the system — the best of its kind in the country — and is now trying to pretend he doesn’t remember how it works. On Monday, his campaign said Mr. Romney believed the identical requirement in President Obama’s health care law was a penalty, paid through the tax system. Two days later, Mr. Romney rushed to the cameras to contradict the campaign and insist the mandate was a tax.

Why the switch? As he has on so many issues, Mr. Romney caved to Republican conservatives who want him to campaign on the falsehood that the mandate is a vast tax increase on the middle class. The Supreme Court’s decisionthat the law is constitutional was disastrous to their cause, so they distorted its basic reasoning. Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. wrote that the mandate is legal under the Congressional taxing power, which Republicans took a step further, saying the mandate must now be a tax. And not just a tax, but a huge, oppressive tax, one of the largest in history.

New Hampshire Strikes a Blow Against the Sovietized Amerikan ‘Justice’ System


When New Hampshire Governor John Lynch signed HB 146 into law on June 18, the Granite State became the first in the nation to enact a measure explicitly recognizing and protecting the indispensable right of jury nullification.

New Hampshire’s jury nullification law reads, in relevant part: “In all criminal proceedings the court shall permit the defense to inform the jury of its right to judge the facts and the application of the law in relation to the facts in controversy."

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and his government has been “shameful and disgraceful” in its response to the carnage in Syria, US Senator John McCain said Sunday, slamming Washington’s inaction on the issue.

“The fact is that the United States has played no leadership role,” McCain, a veteran senator and former Republican presidential candidate, told CBS television, referring to efforts to halt Damascus’s crackdown on opposition.

“Fourteen thousand people have been massacred by (Syrian President) Bashar al-Assad. The United States of America’s performance so far has been shameful and disgraceful,” said McCain.

Americans may feel more distant from war than at any time since World War II began.  Certainly, a smaller percentage of us —less than 1% – serves in the military in this all-volunteer era of ours and, on the face of it, Washington’s constant warring in distant lands seems barely to touch the lives of most Americans

 

And yet the militarization of the United States and the strengthening of the National Security Complex continues to accelerate.  The Pentagon is, by now, a world unto itself, with a staggering budget at a moment when no other power or combination of powers comes near to challenging this country’s might.
