  • Montana Republicans Call Bill to Combat Campus Rape a "Mood Killer"

    In California, lawmakers have drafted a bill that would require colleges to adopt an affirmative consent standard to help fight the college rape epidemic. SB 967, the Student Safety from Sexual Assault bill, would also implement prevention and outreach programs to combat sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking.

    In the latest attack in the war on women, two Republicans in Montana balked at the bill, expressing their outrage that sexual consent would be a requirement by law. Republican State Rep. Mike Miller (Helmville) dismissed the bill as an intrusion and as "control" over "what happens in the bedroom." He shared on his Facebook page that the bill would be "tough to enforce" and that sexual consent was likely to be a case of "he said, she said."

    Republican candidate Joe Dooling (East Helena) even went so far as to say that sexual consent from both parties is a "mood killer."

  • California Rising: With Democratic leaders, chronic deficits become surplus

    What a difference a Democrat makes - having a Democrat in the governor’s office and a supermajority in both houses of the legislature, that is.

    In 2010, as California’s Republican Governor was on his way out the door, the state was figuring out how to address a $19 billion budget deficit. Huge deficits were nothing new to the Golden State: they had faced a $16 billion deficit in 2008 and a jaw-dropping $41 billion deficit in 2009.

    Now, California is facing budget surpluses.
