Hillary is better than anybody the GOP has to run. Romney lost because the TEA PARTY screamed thatRead More most Americans are lazy, greedy users. You can't slander the voting public and expect to win. You can't tell black people that they live on the plantation, or that young people are stupid, you can't call gay Americans the worst names and threaten to put discrimination in the Constitution, you can't force a women to maintain a pregnancy after they are raped, you can't call people wetbacks, scream about English being national language with the insinuation that immigrants are not welcome, you can't scream that our first President of color is not American and push wild conspiracy theories, and you can't call Muslim Americans ragheads & terrorists. Compared to the other clown-car characters in the GOP primaries, Romney wasn't even a bad candidate, by GOP-standards. He lost for the same reason the last GOP candidate lost. He was leaning to far right, without need. He should have been more open and should have not so shamelessly pandered to the right-wing GGG (God, Guns,and Gynecology) crowd, He also should have picked a different running mate. Romney was the poster child for plutocracy, but it only fair to admit that he, at one point, has introduced more liberal legislation than Obama. His health care reform and his assault weapons ban (hello, NRA, he was the anti-gun candidate) went far. The GOP has to learn that the USA is no longer a center-right country, and has to do some house-cleaning. Do away with the old concrete-heads like McConnell, Priebus, Ryan, and Boehner, who have been reanimating the same idiotic talking points even after an epic defeat. The GOP needs to move a little to the center, compromise more, stop suppressing women and immigrants, and stop the pseudo-religious hate-lingo, or they'll just keep losing.

That Newsmax article constantly says this is a way to circumvent the Constitution. But since theRead More Constitution grants states the right to award their EC votes any way they want, this is perfectly legal. A state could decide to award its EC votes based on a contest. Have the Democratic nominee and the Republican nominee guess how many jelly beans are in a jar. Closest one gets the EC votes for their party.

Steve Israel should be ashamed of himself. Ever since he became head of the DemocraticRead More Congressional Campaign Committee, he has moved further and further left. I cannot believe this man is a suitable representative for the electorate of his district. I look forward to voting for his opponent in November.

I would like to thank everyone for supporting Congressman Israel. If he is not re-elected, I willRead More lose my unemployment insurance, free health care for my family and will need to find work. By the way, does anyone know if Obamacare covers braces?

EXTEND!!!! It's pathetic that we as citizens allow the people who have never had to use socialRead More benefits decide whether we should be allowed to use what we all pay for every week of our labor out of our paychecks. Tell me one person on Capital Hill who has ever lost a job and had to use the Unemployment System until they found another? I bet its very small number. Yet we give them the decision making power to rule on our lives? Why? They receive full medical coverage,lifetime jobs for some,insane pensions that the working man/woman could only dream of, yet they do not work a full year like the rest of us? These are the people who we want representing our everyday issues? Not in my opinion. Time for this country to ORGANIZE!!! It's us against them it seems. Very sad day to be an american when you see our government coming off the rails and there is no answer in sight.

Deb- I think you make excellent points and capitalism is the only economic system that works.Read More However we haven't seen capitalism in this country in years. Too big too fail.

On Wednesday, the Democrat-led Assembly passed a bill that would delay parts of the Common CoreRead More standards, including preventing Common Core testing from factoring into teacher evaluations...........

Hop aboard the LIRR and visit the Met or MOMA. You can easily spend an entire day at either ofRead More them. Another good trip in nice weather if Fort Tryon and the Cloisters, with lunch or dinner at the New Leaf Restaurant in Fort Tryon Park. Or go downtown, take a walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. Or check out Battery Park, or rent a bicycle and ride up from the Battery to the GW Bridge along the Hudson River, turn around and pedal to Central Park, drop off the bike, take the subway to Penn and the LIRR. The last one we did was the 911 Memorial, Trinity Church & Cemetery, the NYSE, the Federal Building (where Washington was sworn-in as President and where the Bill of Rights was written; cap off this trip with a meal at Fraunces Tavern.
