“Even the aghast and ostensibly economically literate The Wall Street Journal tells [Thomas Picketty] to read Animal FarmAnimal Farm, hmm. Isn’t that Orwell’s political parable of farm animals where a bunch of pigs hog up all the economic resources, tell the animals they need the food because they’re the makers and then scare up a prospect of a phony boogie man every time their greed is challenged? Sounds familiar. Hey conservatives, it’s time to stop the childish Cole War name-calling and deal with facts. Either that or be relegated to the kids and the crazy uncle table at holiday dinners.”

Jay Carney

It’s not good for the people we’re supposed to be serving.”

Bill Clinton

“[Y]ou’ve got to give it the Republicans. They have a much more reliable media base.”

Nancy Pelosi

“In Congress, there can be no more fitting memorial to the lives lost in Aurora, in Newtown, and across the country than a concerted effort to enact commonsense gun safety legislation.

We must uphold our oath to ‘protect and defend’ the constitution and all Americans by expanding background checks and keeping dangerous firearms out of the wrong hands.”
