Why Unions Matter

by Eleonora di Liscia

Unions have been under attack from Republican-controlled state governments for the better part of this decade. In the 20th century, unions played a major role in the establishment of a vibrant middle class. Unions are an integral part of our democracy.

The “King of the Iowa Caucuses” Keynotes the Annual Awards Dinner

by Rosemary Heilemann

The Tenth Dems Annual Awards Dinner provided plenty of highlights, most notably from keynoter David Yepsen who provided fascinating insights into the Iowa caucuses – the process and their impact. Read about the event and enjoy an album of more than 50 photos.

Congress Watch:Congress Watch: Double-Talk Dold Sells Himself While Selling Us Out Double-Talk Dold Sells Himself While Selling Us Out

by Laurence D. Schiller

Bob Dold tries to sell himself as a reasonable voice for moderation, concerned only with issues that most concern his constituents. Look more closely, and you’ll find a loyal foot soldier for the Republican agenda.

Unlike Double-Talk Dold, Both Democratic Candidates from the 10th District Have Proven to Be Strong Advocates for Gun Safety

No matter which candidate emerges from the Democratic primary, 10th District voters will be able to vote for a candidate who genuinely will fight for gun safety. Contrast these Democrats’ actions with Rep. Dold’s double-talk and his history as a loyal member of the political party aligned with the NRA.

by Larry A. Marks

This third article in a series analyzes and explains the flawed economic theory that has guided Republican tax policy for decades.

Congressional Candidates to Appear in Voter Forums

Mark your calendars for January 27 and February 10 and plan to spend an evening with each of the Democrats running for Congress in the 10th District.

The Trump Sandwich—A Lot of Baloney, But It’s Not Very Filling

by Michael W. Beatty

The headline says it all: Donald Trump loves to talk, and talk, and talk. But does he ever say anything of substance?
