“SENATE ADVANCES ‘LET’S QUIT BEING DIRTBAGS’ BILL – Mike McAuliff: “The Senate advanced a bill Monday that aims to curb potential insider trading by Congress. The Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act, or STOCK Act, easily passed a procedural vote 93 to 2, clearing the way for a debate and amendment process that insiders expect will end with passage of the measure by the end of the week. The measure would require members of Congress and higher ranking staffers and federal employees to specifically abide by insider trading rules that apply to everyone, with the added protection of requiring members of Congress and their top aides to reports significant financial transactions within 30 days.” [Huffington Post]

“Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus criticized President Barack Obama, comparing him to “the captain that fled the ship in Italy, that’s our own president who is fleeing the American people.”
- THE HUMAN HEART
Reince, this is a human. How do you Republicans Survive with one? And, how can an incumbant get re-elected if he doesn’t campaign?
It’s no secret that one of the key issues in this election is jobs — and the Republican candidates are banking on people not knowing the truth about the President’s record.
Mitt Romney told Time that President Obama “has not created any new jobs,” and told ABC News earlier this month that the President has “lost 2 million jobs.”
The facts tell a different story: Under this president, we’ve seen more than 3 million private-sector jobs created in 22 consecutive months of job growth.

Auction 2012: 30 Million Jobs and the Election
This week, I’m pleased to bring you an important discussion about what we should be talking about this election season. Corruption. The Huffington Post, the Dylan Ratigan Show, and United Republic will be holding a weeklong series on the costs of our bought government. We’ll look into corruption in banking, energy, health care, trade, and education. We’ll show you how much corruption is costing you, personally. And we’ll trace the money behind it all.
Why are we doing this? Because this is what American elections should be about, not SuperPACs and trivia. During the financial crisis, a US senator asked me, “does the government regulate Wall Street, or does Wall Street, with their billions and billions of dollars, regulate the government through lobbying and campaign financing?” This question is at the root of what ails us as a nation… READ ENTIRE ARTICLE .

No equal opportunity to marry the one he loves and no opportunity to have a family raising adopted children. Santorum’s and Romney’s America: Land of the free, home of the brave. Full happiness and rights…for heterosexuals, only!
