AP FACT CHECK: Ted Cruz misstates science of climate change

Yesterday, the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and NASA said that 2015 was the hottest year on record, beating the previous record set in 2014.   Predictably, Republicans like Ted Cruz continue to ignore the scientific consensus about climate change and continue to peddle falsehoods instead of proposing solutions.   Yesterday, the New Hampshire Democratic Party called out Cruz…

Cap and Change: Marco Rubio’s Evolving Position on Climate Issues

Just eight short years ago as Speaker of the State House in Florida, Marco Rubio pushed for legislation to fight climate change by reducing carbon emissions. He wanted to give Florida’s environmental agency a “mandate” to design a “cap-and-trade or a carbon tax program,” – spending thousands in Florida taxpayer money on business regulations in an effort to curb carbon…

Lowlights from last night’s debate in Las Vegas

There’s no other way to put it: last night’s Republican debate in Las Vegas was a complete disaster. At no point did we hear any of the presidential hopefuls substantively discuss how they would move our country forward; instead, Donald Trump set the tone and the agenda, and everyone else followed, proving they’re now in way over their heads and…

The Real Ted Cruz is Every Bit as Extreme as Donald Trump: Typical of GOP This Year

While Politico is reporting that Ted Cruz is taking a different approach with Manhattan donors than what he says on the campaign trail in Iowa, Cruz’s record and rhetoric show he has been every bit as out of touch and extreme as Donald Trump, but worst yet he has been directly responsible for a government shut-down that cost the economy…

Today, President Obama concluded his trip to the United Nations climate change summit, amid news that two-thirds of Americans want the United States to join a binding international agreement to curb greenhouse gas emissions.

Where we’re going, we don’t need Rubio’s outdated policies

Yesterday, Marco Rubio put out a “Back to the Future”-themed attack video. Here’s our response: “If Marty McFly and Dr. Brown time-traveled to an America under President Marco Rubio, they’d probably think they were in the 1950s. Marco Rubio wants to turn back the clock on a woman’s right to choose – even in cases of rape or incest. He…

John Kasich – a different kind of Republican!

This morning on The View, John Kasich said that he’s a “different kind of Republican.” Yes, oooh so different. Let’s take a look: On women’s health: Kasich said Republicans should “fight like crazy to defund Planned Parenthood” and touts his record as “the most pro-life governor who’s ever held this job.” Under his watch, half of Ohio’s abortion facilities have…

Jeb Bush’s energy plan would be disastrous for the American people

There’s no other way to put it: Jeb Bush’s energy plan would be a disaster for the American people. It would weaken safeguards on polluters, let Big Oil run free again, and cut measures important to renewable energy development. By contrast, the Democratic Party recognizes the importance of tackling climate change, and to that end, President Obama has overseen a…
