A Republican Autocracy in Michigan

Elected officials removed and replaced with a non-elected official. Laws passed illegally by ignoring one party’s votes. Autocracy meets Michigan.

Ohio Primary Endorsements

We all know how important primaries are, they give us the opportunity to choose strong progressives as our candidates for November.  Progressive Majority is excited to announce our  first endorsements of 2012.  Each of these candidates is in a highly competitive primary in the critical battleground state of Ohio.  We need these candidates to win their primary on March 6 and their election in November so we can take back control of Ohio and move forward with progressive values.

We've got to beat this guy

Are you kidding me?  Women and women’s health have been under vicious attack lately and it isn’t stopping anytime soon.  Anti-choice zealots are coming out of the woodwork to run for office and it seems like the ones in office are putting up crazy anti-women’s health bills by the day.  Take Bob Gray in Michigan for example.    Bob Gray is a right-wing, anti-choice conservative who wants to prohibit women from making their own health choices.  His website says, “Does God approve of what will take place at 1625 N. Opdyke Road and what Planned Parenthood will be doing if we don’t put a stop to their madness?”

Let's be fair

Women’s health is under attack by conservatives. Whether it’s Congressman Darrell Issa blocking women from testifying on women’s health in front of his committee or the Virginia House of Delegates passing a law forcing a woman to have an ultrasound before she is allowed an abortion, women’s health is under relentless attack.

Well, women legislators are fighting back.

Gov. Kasich blinks in Ohio

Ohio Gov. John Kasich just blinked and everyone saw it.  On Wednesday, Gov. Kasich said he wanted to come to a deal with public sector unions on his anti-worker bill SB 5, or as it’s now known, Issue 2 on the November ballot.  It certainly looks like the governor and his anti-worker allies are getting nervous and they should be.  The people of Ohio spoke loud and clear when they turned in 1.3 million signatures, more than four times they needed, for a repeal referendum on this bill.
