by Elizabeth Regan | August 31, 2015 5:30am

File Photo With ads that harken back to the political and social tumult of the late 1960s, former senatorial and gubernatorial hopeful Ned Lamont has embarked on a campaign to rally support for a nuclear non-proliferation agreement with Iran as the deal awaits congressional approval.

OP-ED | To Improve Democracy, Lower the Voting Age

by Kiernan Majerus-Collins | August 28, 2015 9:00am

Why is our political system so shortsighted? On so many issues, from global warming to fiscal responsibility, our government seems focused on short-term benefits, while it ignores long-term consequences. Our infrastructure is falling apart, our schools are underfunded, and all the while special interests make out like bandits. Why?

DC NEWS JUNKIE | Blumenthal Says His Heritage Isn’t Playing a Part in Decision on Iran

by Jordan Fenster | August 28, 2015 5:30am


Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal said Thursday that he’s been listening to both supporters and opponents of the multi-national, nuclear non-proliferation agreement that’s been struck with the government of Iran.

by Jordan Fenster | August 24, 2015 5:30am

When President Barack Obama first announced a deal to monitor Iran’s nuclear capabilities, members of Connecticut’s congressional delegation expressed cautious support, pending a thorough review of the agreement. A vote has not yet come to the floor, but that cautious support has turned into explicit approval for all but two of Connecticut’s representatives in Washington.

OP-ED | Connecticut’s Congressional Delegation Cautious On Iran Deal

by Terry Cowgill | August 14, 2015 5:30am

Back when George W. Bush was president, it was always interesting to see where members of Connecticut’s congressional delegation would position themselves on Bush’s initiatives. Seemed like most of the time, Democrats stood uniformly in opposition — with the notable exception of Sen. Joe Lieberman, who showed his independence from them by supporting Bush’s Iraq war resolution and giving the commander-in-chief a peck on the cheek at the 2005 state-of-the-union address.

OP-ED | Will HUD Punish The Land Of The Haves And The Have Nots?

by Terry Cowgill | July 24, 2015 5:29am


As longtime observers can tell you, Connecticut can be slow to respond to commands from on-high. Whether it’s the court-ordered Sheff vs. O’Neill decision to end “racial isolation” in the state’s public schools or the federal Fair Housing Act — both well intentioned, to be sure — we independent-minded Yankees don’t especially like being told what to do.
