The Next Big Fight

It's clear now that Wall Street reform is the next big fight. The Senate is likely to begin debate this week, and already all 41 Republican senators have signed a letter opposing reform. But there is still time for individual senators to do the right thing, and there is still time to show your support for Wall Street reform.

Add your name now, and stand with the President on Wall Street reform.

Weekly Address: Holding Wall Street Accountable

"Every day we don’t act, the same system that led to bailouts remains in place – with the exact same loopholes and the exact same liabilities. And if we don’t change what led to the crisis, we’ll doom ourselves to repeat it. That’s the truth. Opposing reform will leave taxpayers on the hook if a crisis like this ever happens again."

Find Out If You Qualify for Recovery Act Tax Credits

"The big guys know all the credits and deductions to claim during tax season, but we want middle class families to know just how much is out there for them this year thanks to the Recovery Act – and how to take advantage of it. From help with college expenses to credits for cost-saving, energy-efficiency home improvements, these Recovery Act tax credits not only provide some needed relief for working Americans, but also help them invest in their families’ futures." – Vice President Joe Biden
With Tax Day just around the corner, the White House has put together an interactive tool to highlight tax benefits that are available to families and individuals now thanks to the Recovery Act:

Op-Ed by Vice President Joe Biden: “A Comprehensive Nuclear Arms Strategy”

Op-Ed by Vice President Joe Biden: “A Comprehensive Nuclear Arms Strategy”
Today at 9:05am

Following the release of yesterday's updated Nuclear Posture Review, Vice President Joe Biden published an op-ed in today’s Los Angeles Times, discussing the U.S.'s new comprehensive nuclear arms strategy:

When I joined the Senate in 1973, crafting nuclear policy meant mastering arcane issues like nuclear stability and deterrence theory. With the end of the Cold War and a new relationship between our country and Russia, thankfully these subjects no longer dominate public discourse. Today, the danger of deliberate, global nuclear war has all but disappeared, but the nuclear threats we face from terrorists and non-nuclear states seeking to acquire such weapons are graver than ever.

On Tuesday, President Obama took an important step toward addressing these threats by releasing a plan that will reduce the role of nuclear weapons in our national security strategy while ensuring that our nuclear arsenal remains safe, secure and effective for as long as it is needed. The Nuclear Posture Review outlines a strategy, supported unanimously by the national security cabinet, for greater security from nuclear dangers and implements the agenda that President Obama first outlined in Prague just over a year ago to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and to pursue the peace and security of a world without them.

On the Road to Economic Recovery: Largest Job Growth in Three Years

Big news out today: The Bureau of Labor Statistics just released its March jobs report, showing that the economy added 162,000 jobs last month -- the most jobs added in any month during the past three years.
To put it in perspective, this is a dramatic change from just one year ago. During the first three months of 2009, on average we were losing 753,000 jobs per month. Today, we learned that in the first quarter of 2010, our economy grew by an average of 54,000 jobs per month.
Check out this chart showing the job losses and gains from 2007 to today:
Today's news is promising -- but as President Obama has emphasized, with millions of Americans still looking for work, creating jobs and bringing about a full economic recovery continues to be the administration's top priority.

You can download a .PDF of the jobs chart here.
Unemployment Insurance has run out thanks to Republicans blocking a new extension. I'll remember this come November. As Vince McMahon's theme song says, "no chance; no chance in Hell" could they possibly hope for my vote!

Rot in Hell, GOP! and take your confederate tea party pasties to Hell with you!
