Congress Watch: Dold Mailers Exemplify Republican Double-Speak at Its Best
Protecting Medicare has been a priority of 10th District Congressman Robert Dold, or so a recent mailer he sent to 10th District residents would have you believe. The truth? Well, that is something altogether different. Welcome to this month’s Congress Watch.
Dold Works to Reverse Dodd-Frank
Congressman Robert Dold seems to be working hard… to undermine vital protections for hard-working American families. His efforts to weaken the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act provide us with yet another example of his true priorities.

by Ron Levitsky
Republicans have been invoking God’s name for political gain all the way back to the founding of their party. The author contrasts their methods today with those employed more than a century and a half ago.
by Jack Altschuler
The Occupy Wall Street movement has been attacked far and wide by Conservatives. The increasing ferocity of those attacks is good news, says the author. It means some of the one-percenters are getting very, very nervous.
