Sleazy lawyer and multimillionaire, Vicente González bought his South Texas congressional seat in 2016 by spending $1,850,000 of his own money against progressive primary opponent Juan Palacios, Jr. González tricked the gullible Congressional Progressive Caucus into endorsing him,...

Before the 1964 Democratic landslide-- resulting in 295 Democratic House seats and just 140 for the Republicans and a 68-32 Democratic majority in the Senate-- conservatives had teamed up with the American Medical Association (AMA) to slime Medicare proposals for SIXTY years. Once...

Drug prices are too high for many reasons, but there is just one person blocking a fix: MoscowMitch

I have to admit that Pelosi’s plan to lower drug costs is more progressive than I-- or anyone else-- expected. It certainly isn't the Lloyd Doggett plan she's kept bottled up in...

From 1905, when it was first introduced, to 1965 when a Democratic landslide the year before than finally allowed it to pass, Medicare had been opposed by conservatives-- of both parties. In its last few years before passage, Wilbur Mills (D-AR), the completely conservative Democrat...

I admit it... gladly, proudly: I've always detested Joe Biden. Loathed the guy-- in the '70s he was an outright racist, not even hiding it-- and then went on to be one of the most conservative Democratic shitheads in the Senate, along with Joe Lieberman (CT), Henry Jackson (WA), John...

Ben Ray Luján is running scared. This week he "broke" with Pelosi, his puppet-master, and suddenly called for impeaching Trump. Over the course of the last month or so, he also broke with her on the Green New Deal and Medicare-for-All. And he says he will no longer accept the...

Many people still don't understand what Medicare-- let alone Medicare-for-All-- actually means. But, despite a barrage of propaganda against it from the Sickness-Industrial Complex, Fox News, Hate Talk Radio and the Republican Party, it polls very well. The brand new EconomistYouGov...

There seem to be so many Republican members of Congress announcing that they're not running next year-- and some in districts that Democrats can win. Yesterday Kenny Marchant, a conservative Republican who represents a district north of Dallas, said he's had enough. He's the 4th...

In 1965, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Medicare Act. Within a year, and without the aid of computers, the United States provided more than 19 million seniors with health coverage. Before the law existed, over half of the elderly in the United States did not have health insurance....

You like Bernie's progressive agenda? Elizabeth Warren's progressive agenda? Even if America elects one of them-- or, hopefully, both of them-- to run the executive branch, without a more progressive legislative branch, much of that agenda will be stymied. As we saw Thursday, Medicare had been...
