    The Keystone XL Veto and the Need for Comprehensive Energy Policy

    in Politics Progressive

    President Obama vetoed Keystone XL - but there are still plenty of dangers from other, smaller pipelines and oil trains that pass through our communities. What we lack is a comprehensive energy policy that would take us off oil, says MOMocrat Karoli -- although we've started to make some progress over the last six years of the Obama Administration.


    Also: Net neutrality, Scott Walker's Wisconsin "Freedom to Work" law, and another GOP lawmaker making laws that restrict women's rights to reproductive healthcare -- who doesn't seem to have a clue about female anatomy.

    Food Stamps for Work; Prostitution Legalization; Keystone XL

    in News

    Chapter 1: Farm Bill and Food Stamps
    Another fight concerning the Farm Bill has erupted over reapplying more stringent work standards for those receiving food stamps. In particular, those designated able-bodied and work capable individuals between the ages of 16 and 59 are expected to either work or perform some kind of job training while they receive assistance. Those requirements have been largely relaxed since the beginning of the recession, but now some legislators want to bring them back calling it a fair deal for those who receive assistance for a longer period of time. However, critics of the suggestion note that, despite the improvement of the economy overall, the unemployment rate has not significant decreased and many who rely on the assistance still lack jobs.  We talk to Rachel Van Dongen , Congressional Editor for POLITICO.
    Chapter 2:  Supreme Court to Consider Whether Government Can Withhold Funding from Anti-HIV Organizations that Promote Legalizing Prostitution
    The United States Supreme Court today heard the case of USAID v. Alliance for an Open Society, in which they are being asked to decide whether the federal government can refuse funding to non-profits that promote strategies they disagree with. In 2003 Congress passed the United States Leadership Against HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria Act which included language that would rescind funding from organizations that promote the legalization of prostitution as a way of curbing HIV-infections. Such organizations filed suit claim this is essentially censorship, a ban of their right to free speech. We talk to Megan Brown, a Partner at Wiley Rein who wrote a brief on behalf of the Rutherford Institute.

    Down The Line: Steven Mufson on the Keystone XL Pipeline

    in Environment

    Are you interested in knowing the facts about the Keystone XL pipeline? Well, depending on the source, the “facts” vary wildly. Proponents tout the Alberta tar sands as the new Saudi Arabia, claim that the Keystone pipeline will bring 100,000 jobs and help get the US off of foreign oil. Critics, on the other hand, say the jobs are more like under 50, that all the oil will be exported, that tar sands crude is highly prone to spills, and that this project would endanger pristine wildlife habitats. So who is right? This week on Sea Change Radio we hear from longtime Washington Post energy correspondent Steven Mufson who has recently completed a book

    GOP Senate fails Keystone override; SCOTUS split on ACA subsidies, What's next?

    in Politics Conservative

    Conversation takes place "In the Pickle Barrel" at 8AM-10AM EST. Join the coversations in the online chat room or Bill live on air by calling  855-236-2486. Your voice is important.


    The so called "GOP controlled Senate" took another 'whup'n' with it's failure to override Obama's veto of legislation approving the Keystone XL pipeline. How did this failure happen? Is the pipeline plugged or is there still a chance to move this project forward? 


    The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has definitely left the ACA (aka Obamacare) "In the Pickle Barrel". Do not expect a quick answer on this very important ruling. When and how will SCOTUS finally address this issue?

    Obama And Koch Brother Spending: It's The Real Thing

    in Politics Conservative

    Mitt Romney did the Elmos a favor in the worst way possible. Who quits because they could have won? Was he ever really considering running?


    Obama suggest that we spend more now that our deficits are so ... um .... low and America is doing ... um .... better. He has waited his WHOLE presidency to tax and spend like his fellow liberal brethren and he has but two years left and LOTS of catching up to do.


    The Smurfs say Koch spending plans are only going to fire up their base. Does anyone believe them? Didn't Prince Harry already make the Koch brothers his whipping boys last year. How did that work out? So much for retooling their message.


    Finally, The Keystone XL Pipeline passes the Senate in bipartisan fashion. Expect quick House passage of the Senate changes and a prompt veto from you know who.
