Think how much economic activity providing all Americans safe drinking water would generate.
Parity: The same government that let the Wall Street bankers award themselves millions of dollars in bonuses while the banks were sucking the Treasury's teat also created a law that lets pension funds cut pensions 50% or more. Why underfunding pensions should punish the workers and not the employers is a mystery lost in a sea of lobbyist money.
You Don't Always Get What You Pay For: If money were the deciding factor in political campaigns, Clinton and Bush would be getting ready for November, not Super Tuesday.
As Always: People protesting the worst methane gas disaster in history have been arrested. The people who let the leak go unrepaired for years have been left to their ill-gotten gains. You'd think they were bankers or some such.
Mr. Rogers: It has only taken Bernie Sanders 50 years to become an overnight sensation.
Clarification: Common Core standards were developed by the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers, not the federal government. Their adoption by the states has been voluntary, not mandated by the federal government. Hey, listen up Kansas, I'm talking to you.
In Like Flint: It's not just Flint or Hoosic Falls or even a small handful of places, lead and other poisons lurk in many of the nation's water supplies. Don't ask, even though what you don't know may damage or kill your children.
Lump Summed: As the recovery continues, American corporations have just reported the worst quarterly earnings since 2009.
