At the core of the debate between liberals and conservatives is a dispute over whose policies are better for economic growth, and particularly for the middle class. A new studyby Bryan Dettrey and Harvey D. Palmer suggests one way to test this question — by examining how economic growth differs under Republican and Democratic presidencies. Their finding might not be too surprising: Under Republicans, growth boosts the stock market, while under Democrats, it reduces unemployment.

Republicans are terrible for anyone who’s not a millionaire or richer

Popular local business review and search site Angie’s List is canceling its expansion plans in response to Indiana’s “religious freedom” law.

I think the free market has spoken pretty god-damn clearly and it’s only been a few days. To be honest, I don’t think it’s possible to be more proud of how quickly the reactions are happening. Time to fix your fucking face, Indiana State Government.

As a residents, we fucking reject you.

Charles Barkley And Reggie Miller Condemn Indiana Anti-Gay Law, Urge NCAA To Move Final Four

Charles Barkley And Reggie Miller Condemn Indiana Anti-Gay Law, Urge NCAA To Move Final Four

Indiana Governor Mike Pence and his fellow Republicans are facing one hell of a backlash over the anti-gay law passed they passed on Thursday, and now former NBA greats Charles Barkley and Reggie Miller are blasting them for it.

Charles Barkley has made many ignorant statements on the issue of racism over the last few months, but he may have redeemed himself at least a little bit by slamming…

In thirty-six years in the United States Senate, I cannot recall another instance in which Senators wrote directly to advise another country — much less a longtime foreign adversary — that the President does not have the constitutional authority to reach a meaningful understanding with them. This letter sends a highly misleading signal to friend and foe alike that that our Commander-in-Chief cannot deliver on America’s commitments — a message that is as false as it is dangerous.

The people of Michigan could soon see their public schools transformed into nothing more than conservative Christian indoctrination centers if Republican lawmakers have their way.

In response to Governor Rick Snyder’s surprisingly sane viewpoint that public education should be a workforce development program combined with Common Core standards, Republican state Rep. Gary Glenn introduced a bill…

Under the guise of “religious freedom” Indiana’s Republican governor, Mike Pence has legalized discrimination against LGBTQ people. 

And filed under: No, “both parties are NOT the same” - the nearby Republican governor of Arkansas, Asa Hutchinson, is about to pass a similar anti-gay bill. Yes, that would be the same Arkansas that refused to pass the Martin Luther King holiday and eventually acquiesced, but not before giving confederate “hero” Robert E. Lee Day a state holiday…on the same day as MKL Day.

Finally, but no less important, it should be noted that Indiana also has a “FETICIDE” law (which only applies to women) that imprisons a woman if she “endangers” a fetus, or gives birth to a stillborn child.

Ted Cruz is running as a "courageous conservative." Which is why he's announcing his candidacy at an exclusively fundamentalist Christian university where he will courageously call for tens of millions of people to have their health insurance taken away; women to be deprived of their right to reproductive health care; immigrants to be stripped of any chance of attaining permanent legal status; and repealing sensible environmental laws. All while making children cry.
