After ranting and posturing for months about cutting spending and killing earmarks, the House this week will consider a bill that will shred services to poor people - including Head Start, nutrition programs for infants and heating subsidies this cold winter.

These people are shameless.

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
