Democrat Mark Warner voted against Ron Wyden’s amendment to prevent the privatization of Social Security. Republicans Dean Heller, John Hoeven, Mark Kirk, John McCain, and Rob Portman supported the measure. […]
It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection. These are the times when maps fade, old landmarks crumble and direction is lost. Forwards is backwards now, so we glance sideways at the strange lands through which we are all passing, knowing for certain only that our destination has disappeared. We are unready to meet these times, but we proceed nonetheless, adapting as we wander, reshaping the Earth with every tread. Behind us we have left the old times, the standard times, the high times. Welcome to the irregular times.
While Ted Cruz skipped work, these members of Congress introduced a bill to cut spending and reduce the threat created by America’s nuclear weapons arsenal. […]

When Inhofe speaks of the ability to communicate to one another, he’s speaking of it in terms of an unequal, top-down imposition of only one kind of speech by the federal government. That’s not the only way we could move forward together as a nation. […]
The following Senate Democrats chose to join with the Republican Party, to break Barack Obama’s veto, and to allow a dangerous pipeline to carry petroleum sludge from Alberta’s tar sands all the way through America’s heartland. […]
The change in the political party that is engaging in presidential library corruption does not change the consistency of the corruption. Secret Presidential library fundraising is a means for the bribery of a sitting President of the United States. […]
S. 366, a bill introduced by Montana Senator Jon Tester, would require senators to file campaign finance reports electronically with the Federal Election Commission, not on paper with the Senate.
This may not sound like an important distinction, but the practical effect of the current system is to delay the processing of campaign contribution reports, […]
Yesterday, U.S. Senator Richard Shelby, a Republican from Alabama, proposed a new amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.
