Is Your Congressman Corrupt?

The Progress Report IS YOUR CONGRESSMAN CORRUPT?

Rigging the Supreme Court Against the ACA.

Brett Kavanaugh could be the final vote to dismantle the ACA. Here’s how: Trump’s animus for the Affordable Care Act isn’t a secret.

Trump’s Own Advisors Shame Him on Russia.

Trump’s national security advisors tried to send a message yesterday by issuing a strong warning about Russian election interference. Too bad the president didn’t get that message.

Scott Pruitt might be gone, but the culture of corruption he helped establish is still open for business under new management: Andrew Wheeler.
