Tweet of the day:

Centrist economic plans like Hillary Clinton’s may become a thing of the past: Clinton’s economic plan has her “well-positioned to win both the primary and the general election, but her approach likely doesn’t represent the future policy course of the party.”

US existing home sales tumble in warning sign for housing industry: “The National Association of Realtors said on Monday existing home sales dropped 7.1 percent to an annual rate of 5.08 million units, the lowest level since November.”

Illinois cuts off funding to its public universities: Ah, austerity. It always seems to hit those that actually need it. Since June of last year, Illinois has been struggling to agree to terms on a new budget deal. Consequently, “the state budget impasse, and the resultant lack of funding for all of Illinois institutions of higher education, could potentially cause damage to many other schools. For example, there are anecdotal reports that some university professors in Illinois are being approached by schools in other states, which are trying to lure them away.”
