Why didn’t seven U.S. Senators — the men responsible for making laws related to the establishment and regulation of corporations — know that Koch Industries is no different than an overwhelming number of businesses here in the U.S. with regards to their tax payments?

Riding the media blitz that followed the DREAM Act’s recent defeat, Senators Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT) unveiled their own comprehensive immigration reform bills just before Congress adjourned last week. The bills are enforcement-heavy, party-line bills that were immediately referred to committee, where they are expected to languish for some time.

The 2010 midterms are not as critical as the Democratic loyalists make them out to be. Progressives are getting dire warning about the repeal of HCR, impeachment of Obama, the death of Social Security, and a host of other right-wing assaults on all that is good and decent should the Democrats lose their majority.

Hello, FDL. My name is Scott McAdams, and I’m the Democratic candidate for Senate in the great state of Alaska. I met some of you this year at Netroots Nation in Las Vegas, back when my candidacy was a tiny blip on the 2010 Senate radar screen. Since then, as some of you might have heard, my race has heated up into an almost unprecedented three-way battle, complete with a nationally televised Republican Family Feud. Follow me below the jump for a little bit of who I am and what I’m all about.
