Ted Cruz and some FACTS …


cruz_redBut as of this moment, Texas Senator Ted Cruz is officially running for president, and if we don’t do everything in our power to stop him, the possibility of President Ted Cruz could become a reality.

So here are three things everyone needs to know about wannabe President Ted Cruz:

  •    (1) He led the GOP’s government shutdown, costing the economy a staggering $24 billion, as part of a personal crusade to take away quality health care from millions of Americans and give control back to the insurance companies.
  •    (2) He has obstructed everything from raising the minimum wage to paycheck fairness to immigration reform.
  •     (3) He would give corporations and the richest Americans huge tax breaks, at the expense of working Americans.

Here’s what you can do to fight back right now — become a Factivist, and commit to spreading the word about Ted Cruz and his fellow Republicans:

Climate deniers … running for President? come on


a repost

marco Rubio’s  abc appearance said: on climate change. “I don’t agree with the notion that some are putting out there — including scientists — that somehow, there are actions we can take today that would actually have an impact on what’s happening in our climate,” Rubio insisted. “Our climate is always changing. And what they have chosen to do is take a handful of decades of research, and say that this is now evidence of a longer-term trend that’s directly and almost solely attributable to manmade activity.”

“I don’t know of any era in world history where the climate has been stable,” he added. “Climate is always evolving. Natural disaster have always existed.”

“But let me get this straight,” Karl interrupted. “You do not believe human activity — C02 — has caused warming to our planet?”

“I do not believe that human activity is causing these dramatic changes to our climate the way these scientist are portraying it,” Rubio said. “And I do not believe the laws that they propose we pass will do anything about it. Except, it will destroy our economy.”

what a successful Presidency looks like


The following sponsored message was sent to you by AlterNet on behalf of DCCC:

To be sure the numbers have shot upward

This is what a successful Presidency looks like:

President Obama Took Office
(January 2009)
Today
7,949 The Dow Jones Index 17,573
7.8% Unemployment 5.8%
-5.4% GDP Growth 3.5%
9.8% Deficit GDP % 2.8%
37.7 Consumer Confidence 94.5

In 6 years under President Barack Obama, we’ve made incredible progress as a country.

Often in the face of incredible obstruction, the President has continued to fight for us and lead us forward.

Will you add your name now and say that you’re still standing with President Obama in his final two years in office?
