President Obama On VAWA

Missed the State Of The Union address last night?  Well, here’s a guide of some major points for those of you who still want to know where we’re at.  The economy continues to dominate President Obama’s agenda, given how the first 20 minutes were a mixture of economic policies from spending cuts to boosting the middle class.  Though we’re no longer arguing about the Bush tax cuts, bailouts, or the debt ceiling, we have new talking points: sequester cuts, deficit reduction, tax codes. Oh my.

Sam Seaborn, fictional speechwriting dreamboat from “The West Wing,” would argue the SOTU speech is not solely about policy, it’s about noble over-reaching that government should aspire to. So what’s on President Obama’s agenda? Where are we heading in the next four years? Keep reading »

Good News: The Senate Passed The Violence Against Women Act (Again)

Today's Lady News photo
  • The Senate passed the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act by a wide majority of 78-22 yet again.  The measure first  passed in 1994 was up for reauthorization in 2012; however, in April 2012 the Senate passed a similar bill, which failed in the House of Representatives due to measures added to extend protections to Native American women, undocumented immigrants and same-same sex couples.  According to Politico, the 2013 bill has minimal changes besides dropping a portion that would “grant U visas to undocumented immigrant women who had been abused.”  Here’s hoping this finally passes the House! [Politico]
  • Reportedly there is some pressure from Republicans to get VAWA passed:  Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor were sent a letter by 17 Congressmen from their own caucus urging them to “immediately reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act.” [NYMag.com Huffington Post]
  • France’s legalization of same-sex marriage moved one step further: a measure extending marriage and adoption rights to gay couples passed the National Assembly 329-229. [CNN] Keep reading »

Attention party people, tonight is a pretty big night!  No, I’m not talking about Mardi Gras.  I’m referring to another excuse to drink on a Tuesday: President Obama’s first State Of The Union Address of his second term.

The annual address made by the President at the invitation of Congress not only produces some candid facial expressions (The Boehner Smirk, The Biden Grin, The Alito Head Shake), and spontaneous outbursts (“You lie!”), but it is also the President’s chance to explain how far we’ve come as a nation and where future policy is heading.

At the top of the list will probably be continued efforts to strengthen the economy, which according to NPR “remains the most important issue to voters, judging by what they tell pollsters.” Potential battles include “sequestration” and the deficit.

Here are six other slightly sexier issues the pundits are predicting: Keep reading »
