The Sin City Express


Is Senator Straight Talk still telling lies about all the rail money in the stimulus bill being earmarked for a train between LA and Las Vegas?  Yes he is.  Of course, you may recall that he was also happy to lie endlessly about Sarah Palin rejecting an earmark for the Bridge to Nowhere during last year’s campaign, so I guess this is no big surprise.  Dogs don’t change their spots.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
