I'll be taking an 'unpaid leave of absence' from my job at the Global Network from December 15-March 15, 2020 in order to help my friend Lisa Savage on her campaign for the US Senate in Maine. She's running as a Maine Green Independent Party member and needs to gather 2,000 petition signatures of registered Greens during that period. I'll be back to GN after March 15.

A BAD DEAL IN WASHINGTON



Looks like Obama and the Democratic Party leadership have agreed to a deal with the Republicans to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and leave the rich alone. No tax increases for the fat cats at the top. No "shared sacrafice".

The deal does not even allow temporary tax cuts on the rich to expire. Nor does it defund any wars. Yet it requires cuts of $1.2 trillion now and $2.5 trillion over a decade.

Once again the magician sells out his "base". He talks nice but always, always, always, moves to the right and plays with ball with those who are out to destroy social progress.

If you happen to be one of those who still support Obama, please tell me why?
