Are you worried about the economy?

With the recent stock market fluctuations, are you worried about the economy? The stock market’s roller-coaster ride in the last may have prompted some to panic and freak out. After all, the market had been quite boring up until that point, with the Dow even hitting an all-time high of 25,000 in early January, only to reach 26,000 seven trading days later.

House Democrats Turn on One of Their Own

Representative Dan Lipinski is a rare find in Congress these days: an anti-abortion Democrat who voted against the Affordable Care Act. Of the 34 Democrats who broke with the party on that most consequential vote eight years ago, just three remain in office. And none have had it quite so easy as Lipinski, a low-key former college professor who in 2005 inherited a Chicago-area House seat that his father held for two decades. He’s escaped any real threat from Republicans; they defeated most of the other anti-Obamacare Democrats but couldn’t compete in his solidly blue district. And the left has been too busy defending the law and fighting other battles… Read More
