President Obama Is Bringing Overtime Pay To Millions Of Workers

The reform is one of the most consequential of his whole tenure. The Labor Department announced Tuesday that it completed one of the most ambitious economic reforms of the Obama era, finalizing a new rule that will extend overtime protections to millions of additional workers. The administration will accomplish that by raising what’s known as the overtime salary threshold. Nearly all workers earning salaries beneath that threshold are entitled to time-and-a-half pay whenever they work more than...

Inside Planned Parenthood’s $30 Million Campaign For 2016

PITTSBURGH, Pa. — Donald Trump may think Planned Parenthood does “good work,” but its members have few nice things to say about the presumptive GOP frontrunner in return.  “Asshole,” “racist,” “chauvinist,” “dangerous,” “unqualified” and “pendejo“ were all words Planned Parenthood volunteers used when asked to share their thoughts about Trump. One woman said she thought a fart noise would be more appropriate than an actual word.  Nearly 1,000 of Planned Parenthood’s most active volunteers gathered in...

So far in this campaign season, Americans have heard about building a wall on the Southern border, banning Muslims from America, changing foreign policy strategy in the Middle East, stopping illegal immigration—and how big Donald Trump’s hands are. Yet they haven’t heard much serious discussion about meaningful entitlement reform. It may not bet be the most exciting topic, but it’s on a short list of the most important. The United States spent $888 billion on Social...

Last year, Michael Smith learned that his middle-class factory job on Chicago’s South Side was headed to Mexico. The news stunned Smith. After all, his factory made an iconic American product: the Oreo cookie. Soon, real estate mogul Donald Trump took an interest in Smith’s plight. Every chance he had, the front-runner for the Republican nomination pilloried Mondelez, the snack conglomerate that produces Oreos, Ritz crackers and other treats, for its decision to offshore the 600...

Female GOP Lawmakers Don’t Want To Talk About Trump’s ‘Woman Card’

Sen. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) can walk very fast when she doesn’t want to answer a question about Donald Trump.  Donald Trump reduced Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to little more than a female human vessel Tuesday night, saying her gender is the only thing she’s got going for her in her campaign. “The only card she has is the women’s card,” Trump said during a victory speechafter sweeping in five state’s primaries. “She’s got nothing else going on. Frankly,...

Hillary Clinton Just Delivered A Brutal Blow To Bernie Sanders

Bernie’s path forward just got a lot harder. Hillary Clinton dominated Tuesday’s Democratic presidential primaries, dealing another significant blow to Bernie Sanders’ chances of securing the party’s nomination. Ahead of Tuesday’s primaries, Clinton had 1,428 pledged delegates, while Sanders had 1,153. (Winning the nomination requires 2,382 delegates, including unpledged superdelegates.) In order to get on track to overtake Clinton in the delegate race, Sanders needed to win big in Tuesday’s contests. That didn’t happen. Clinton easily won...
