    Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ) rose from his seat on Tuesday during a congressional hearing into the Affordable Care Acts problematic roll-out. He accused his Republican colleagues in the House of dishonestly seeking to identify the problems with the ACA because they would prefer to see it repealed entirely. Pascrell began by insisting that, even though Democrats opposed Medicare Part D in the Bush Era, they worked to make sure that the program was a success. He became animated as he said that Democrats put aside their opposition to Bush in order to make a policy objective work for the good...

Ron Fournier, the National Journal reporter, noted that the email linked to an article in the Los Angeles Times that has joined the rest of the usually-lefty publications who have grown tired of defending he indefensible Obamacare healthcare overhaul.

    The U.S. House of Representatives argued over Obamacare in a rare late-night session Saturday, and the late hour seemed to have a strange effect on at least one congresswoman. Politico reporter Ginger Gibson tweeted that a few members reeked of alcohol, but it would seem some of them dont need any liquid courage to make questionable comments. U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore, D-Wis., used a reference to the Bible to make her point against delaying Obamacare. But in paraphrasing Galatians 6:7, she deleted God from the scripture. Mr. Speaker, be not deceived. The people are not mocked, Moore said. In 24,...

Called the Gun Violence Prevention and Safe Communities Act," the bill sponsored by William Pascrell, D-N.J., and Danny Davis, D-Ill., would nearly double the current 11 percent tax on handguns, while raising the levy on bullets and cartridges from 11 percent to 50 percent.

    The Obama administration faced a backlash from congressional Democrats on Friday following revelations that the National Security Agency broke privacy rules and overstepped its authority thousands of times since 2008. The details were reported late Thursday in The Washington Post, based on an audit and other secret documents provided by NSA leaker Edward Snowden. The report challenged claims by President Obama just last week that the NSA was not abusing its authority, and complicated his effort to reassure Americans and Congress that -- with a little more oversight and transparency -- the surveillance programs are nothing to be worried about....

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- A senior Democratic senator who helped write President Barack Obama's health care law stunned administration officials Wednesday, saying openly he thinks it's headed for a "train wreck" because of bumbling implementation. "I just see a huge train wreck coming down," Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., told Obama's health care chief during a routine budget hearing that suddenly turned tense. Baucus is the first top Democrat to publicly voice fears about the rollout of the new health care law, designed to bring coverage to some 30 million uninsured Americans through a mix of government programs and...

None have voted to defund President Obamas golf trips. The amendment, sponsored by Senator Tom Coburn, required 60 votes to pass.

Under the Constitution, the candidate who wins at least 270 electoral votes wins the presidency, regardless of the popular vote.

That GOP motion was approved on a 259-161 vote. More than 20 Democrats voted with Republicans.

Individuals who call themselves liberal tend to have larger anterior cingulate cortexes, while those who call themselves conservative have larger amygdalas. Based on what is known about the functions of those two brain regions, the structural differences are consistent with reports showing a greater ability of liberals to cope with conflicting...

    TYLER, Texas Most political candidates promise to start a new program or policy on their first day in office, but Bill White has different plans if elected Texas governor. The Democrat says his first bold move would be into a mobile home. In another jab at Republican Gov. Rick Perry, who is costing taxpayers $10,000 a month by renting a mansion outside Austin, White vowed during a swing through East Texas on Wednesday to move into a trailer home if elected. The millionaire businessman and former Houston mayor currently lives in a 4,122-square-foot home appraised at $2.1 million, but...
  • 'Outrageous Campaign Ads' by the DEM

    10/18/2010 3:44:52 PM PDT · by Righting · 1 replies
    CNN, a few minutes ago in 'The Situation room" tried very hard to "explain" the democrats in their attack ads... under a title "Outrageous Campaign ads." One of the "chiefs" starring in the attack ads is that infamous Frl. Sentaor (Grayson) trying to "Taliban-ize" his Rep. opponent. My point is that this is one field where Democrats "won," who's more dirty. I wonder if the right can use the entire demonization-campaign-by-the-Democrats, as a theme in and of itself. Meantime I salute Jack Cafferty that (at least in this instance) he did denounce Grayson that this dirty campaign "doesn't work." as...

    And the hits from the heartland just keep coming. In 2006, Democrats swept statewide races in Ohio and declared that they had turned the once solidly Republican state into a Democratic stronghold, led by the duo at the top of the ticket, Governor Ted Strickland and Lt. Governor Lee Fisher. Four years later, the two have gone into free-fall, according to two Quinnipiac polls. First, yesterdays poll shows the incumbent Governor trailing his Republican challenger, John Kasich, by 17 points:

    Democratic Dunkirk? Democrats try to escape Obama, Pelosi, and Reid. BY Fred Barnes September 8, 2010 5:00 PM We are now seeing the beginning of the political equivalent of the evacuation of Dunkirk in 1940. This time, its not British troops escaping Nazi German forces. Its Democrats evacuating Obamaland, desperate to avoid identification with President Obama with their re-election (or election) on November 2 in doubt. Okay, Im exaggerating, but not much. There is indeed a growing exodus of Democrats from Obama and also from their congressional leaders, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi. And its striking for several reasons. For...

    Democratic Rep. Bobby Bright (Ala.) on Wednesday ducked a question on whether or not he would vote for Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) by joking that she "might even get sick and die." Bright, a centrist Blue Dog who voted against the healthcare reform law, made the comments in response to a question about whether he'd support Pelosi to retain the Speaker's gavel. Speaking at a local Chamber of Commerce event, Bright "joked that Pelosi might lose her own election, decide not to run for the speakers job or otherwise not be available," the Montgomery Advertiser wrote. He then suggested "jokingly"...
