    The proposed merger between cable giants Comcast and Time Warner is a hotly contested issue in Congress, and angers flared again at a recent Senate hearing on the merger last week. Most of the senators seemed  ambivalent about the merger and wouldn't say whether they supported or opposed it, but one senator in particular stuck out from the rest: Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.). "I don't like this revolving door," Franken said in an April 13 interview with CNN. "I don't like this revolving door between regulators and Comcast.

    This month, the Senate Banking Committee is set to consider a bill to overhaul the mortgage finance system, most notably by getting rid of the government-owned mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac over five years.That would significantly shift the risks of mortgages, as well as the entire mortgage market, away from the government and toward the private sector. And with a wealth of lobbying cash as well as connections with the bill's crafters, the financial sector (including the insurance and banking industries) could play a serious role in shaping how those risks and rewards turn out in…

    Today OpenSecrets.org added a new section for joint fundraising committees, the fundraising partnerships between candidates, committees or party committees that allow participants to pool their efforts and split the proceeds. While JFCs are not new, they've becoming increasingly prominent in recent years. With the McCutcheon v. FEC ruling, many campaign finance experts believe they will become even more prevalent.The benefit of a JFC to participants is that it streamlines the process of fundraising. The participants in the JFC can't accept more from a single donor than they can on their own,…

Contributions to Democratic candidates drove this gender gap. Donors to Republican…

We already had a prototype, but we needed volunteers to conduct tests on each and every Congressional website. We expected the project would take about two weeks to complete, but feared it might take a month or longer. We worried that web developers wouldn’t want to spend hours working on a boring, frustrating, often technically complex task. Instead,…

  • In the One-sided Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, It's Hard to Get The Whole Story

    Kurt Opsahl and Nadia Kayyali
    16 Apr 2014 | 11:06 am
    While most courts in the United States are adversarial—each party presents its side and a jury, or occasionally a judge, makes a decision—in the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), only the government presents its case to a judge. While typically two opposing sides work under public review to make sure all the facts are brought to light, in the FISC the system relies on a heightened duty of candor for the government. As is illustrated all too well by recent developments in our First Unitarian v. NSA case, this one-sided court system is fundamentally unfair. In March, after we…

    A year ago today, 15 Americans were killed and 200 injured in a fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas that also destroyed surrounding schools, a nursing home, and residential buildings. The disaster raised serious questions about managing the risks that facilities can pose to local communities. A year later, we ask ourselves, are we any safer? The unfortunate reality is that the West, TX accident is not an isolated occurrence. Explosions and spills involving toxic chemicals have occurred almost regularly, injuring or killing workers and community residents, forcing the evacuation of…

His 90 years of life spanned tumultuous times for the nation and were filled with violent repression and astounding advances, but Randolph never stopped fighting for structural change. As many despair the past three years of gridlock in Washington, it may be useful to remember the broader arc of history that Randolph helped to bend toward justice. Born in segregated…

    In the early part of the 20th century, polio ravaged America. Caused by a communicable virus, polio can devastate the central nervous system and lead to paralysis that makes breathing and walking difficult. Many young victims spent long periods of time encased in metal tubes, known as iron lungs, which helped them to breathe. Others were consigned to leg braces to help them walk. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was America’s most famous polio patient. In 1952, an epidemic of polio was spreading through the nation, killing 3,145 people and leaving more than 21,000 with some form of…

  • History of 1953 CIA Covert Action in Iran to be Published

    Steven Aftergood
    16 Apr 2014 | 7:15 am
    In 1989, the Department of State published a notorious volume that purported to document U.S. foreign policy towards Iran in the early Eisenhower Administration. The volume triggered an avalanche of criticism because it omitted any mention of the CIA’s role in a 1953 covert action that helped overthrow the government of Iran. Later this year, after the passage of more than two decades, the State Department will rectify that error by publishing a supplemental volume of declassified documents in its Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS) series that is expected to fill in the…

But in an obvious conflict of interest, the review is expected to be performed by the CIA itself. “The report exposes brutality that stands in stark contrast to our values as a nation. It chronicles a stain on our history that must never again be allowed to happen,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the chair the Senate Intelligence Committee, in an April…
