John Trasvina: Ending Pregnancy-Related Lending Discrimination Is a Priority for HUD and America's Families
Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, Department of Housing and Urban Development
Lenders certainly have the right to verify income and determine creditworthiness. But they may not single out women on maternity leave for special guarantees, ignore their resources or assume that have no income or will not return to work.

Political Advice to Republicans on Medicare
Dean Baker, 06.07.2011
Co-Director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research
The Republicans are very upset that their vote for Representative Ryan's plan to end Medicare is being used against them. But they actually have a rare opportunity for a do-over.

What if Weiner Was a Woman?
Nina Burleigh​, 06.07.2011
Author, "The Fatal Gift of Beauty"
We can only hope for the day that a U.S. Congresswoman is caught sending boob and crotch pictures to boy-fans, but no woman who leaves the second button undone on a blouse can get elected dog catcher in America.

The Sex Lives of Political Figures
James Love, 06.07.2011
Director, Knowledge Ecology International
There is no evidence that the best leaders have the most monogamous or boring sex lives, nor can one argue the reverse. It is both unrealistic and stupid to insist that politicians "tell the truth" about their sex lives.

On the Anniversary of the Bush Tax Cuts, Let's Reinvest in the Future
Michelle Chan, 06.07.2011
Economic policy director, Friends of the Earth
We must end corporate polluters' ability to pawn the true costs of their pollution off on the rest of society. The health care, environmental cleanup, and other costs created by pollution ought to be paid by the polluters.

Occupying Iraq, State Department-Style: A Frat House With Guns in Baghdad
Peter Van Buren, 06.07.2011
Author, 'We Meant Well: How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People'
To the extent that any attention is paid to Iraq here, the debate over whether eight years of war entitles the U.S. military to some kind of Iraqi squatter's rights is the story that will undoubtedly get most of the press in the coming months.

Romney Will Duel Obama on the Economy -- but Can He Win It?
Earl Ofari Hutchinson​, 06.07.2011
Author and political analyst
The White House protests that it inherited the economic wreckage from the Bush administration and has prevented wholesale collapse through bail-outs, the stimulus, and spending cuts. This hasn't had much resonance with a majority of voters.

For Less Weiner, Elect More Women
Joanne Bamberger​, 06.07.2011
PunditMom, Author, Mothers of Intention: How Women & Social Media are Revolutionizing Politics in America
For most political women, it was hard enough to get elected in the first place; they're not going to jeopardize what they worked so hard for by flashing the internet with some bikini shots.

Blame Grover Norquist for Dismantling Financial Services Reform, Democracy
Jane White, 06.07.2011
Author, "America, Welcome to the Poorhouse"
If you need evidence that this country has been hijacked by special interests, look no further than the hell that compromised politicians are putting Elizabeth Warren through.

Don't Tread on Me? Not All States Think Health Care Reform Threatens States' Rights
Elizabeth B. Wydra, 06.07.2011
Chief Counsel, Constitutional Accountability Center
Contrary to the claims of the state plaintiffs who have sued over federal health care reform, many state leaders think that the Affordable Care Act is not only constitutional -- but also a great step forward for their states and their citizens.

Five Progressive Tax Increases That Washington Won't Talk About
Daniel Marans​, 06.07.2011
Policy and Legislative Associate at Social Security Works. Views expressed are his own.
Did you know that millionaires and billionaires only make payroll tax contributions on earnings of $106,800? If you didn't, it could be because you are among the 94% of American earners who make less than that amount.

AZ Ethnic Studies Showdown: As Teachers Heal Tucson, Will Extremist Officials Escalate Crisis This Week?
Jeff Biggers​, 06.07.2011
Journalist and Author of 'Reckoning at Eagle Creek" and "In the Sierra Madre"
Soundly debunking the state's charges that the program teaches children to "overthrow the government" and promote ethnic chauvinism, university scholars and administrators explained the widely accepted approach of culturally relevant curriculum.

Sarah Palin the Entertainer vs. Sarah Palin the Politician
Lincoln Mitchell​, 06.07.2011
Harriman Institute, Columbia University
Occupying the grey area between politics and entertainment has helped Sarah Palin turn what should have been her greatest vulnerability, a lack of familiarity with the basics of American history or policy, into something of a strength.

Why I Support "The Ronald Reagan Tax Reform Act of 2011"
Michael B. Keegan​, 06.07.2011
President, People For the American Way
In 1986, Ronald Reagan explained that "vanishing loopholes and a minimum tax will mean that everybody and every corporation pay their fair share." It's time for the GOP to take a page from their hero's playbook.

The Conversation to Lead
Brian Till, 06.07.2011
Research Fellow, New American Foundation
This country often feels utterly incapable of political conversation; it's an axiom of American civility, after all, "no politics or religion at the dinner table," right?

Celebrating Estelle
Cecile Richards​, 06.07.2011
President, Planned Parenthood Action Fund
Chances are you've never heard of Estelle Griswold. But she radically changed the lives of women in America. Forty-six years ago today, her courage secured a basic right of women to use birth control to plan and time our pregnancies and to keep our families healthy.

Medicaid: The Next Battleground
Ethan Rome, 06.07.2011
Executive Director, Health Care for America Now
If the Republicans get their way and turn Medicaid into a so-called block grant, millions of seniors would be thrown out of nursing homes and middle class families would be slammed with crushing health care costs.

Fact Watch: Sarah Palin's Twist on Paul Revere
The Center for Public Integrity​, 06.06.2011
Original investigative journalism
Sarah Palin's much-ridiculed story of Paul Revere isn't entirely wrong, but it's badly twisted. How does Palin's version compare with, say, Paul Revere's? Not very well.

Time to Tuck Weiner Back Into the Nation's Pants and Move On
Andy Ostroy, 06.07.2011
Political & pop culture analyst
While people like Anthony Weiner violate their marriages and abuse the trust they have with their wives, they've broken no laws. Their fates belong to their wives, families and to voters -- not to Congress or the media.
