Latino Congressmen Take a Gamble with Health Care Reform

March 17th, 2010 · 11 Comments

Joe Baca Loves Lenders

January 20th, 2009 · 32 Comments

As President Obama places his hand on Lincoln’s Bible to be sworn as the 44th President of The United States, history is clearly being made: it is the first African-American to occupy the office.
