    Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) says, current gas prices have gone down and the government is "missing an opportunity" to increase the gas tax. At a press conference in Chicago on Friday Durbin said, "Two weeks ago I paid $1.51 a gallon for gasoline in downstate Illinois. Clearly, the price of gasoline has gone down dramatically, as has the price of a barrel of oil -- which I think is below $30." "I think we're missing an opportunity here -- a 5-cent increase in the federal gas tax can really fund an infrastructure program that can help create new jobs in...
  • Hillary: Halt all fossil fuel extraction on federal lands

    If you enjoyed paying $1.59 a gallon for gas this past weekend, understand a few things. To the extent domestic production affects this, the oil industry is mostly gettings its resources on private lands. That's because Obama, while he's happy to take credit for the increased productivity and lower prices, is fighting new leases on federal lands wherever he can. That's how he can reassure his left-wing base he's an enemy of the oil industry while also taking credit for the low prices. But there is some oil being extracted on federal lands, and if that stopped all at once,...

    Vice President Joe Biden said Saturday that if upcoming negotiations fail and no political solution to the civil war in Syria is possible, the United States is prepared to step in with major military force. "We do know it would better if we can reach a political solution but we are prepared... if that's not possible... to have a military solution to this operation in taking out Daesh," Biden said following a meeting with Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu.

    Fox News' Greg Gutfeld really tore into Sarah Palin for her endorsement of Donald Trump today because to him, it reeks of opportunism. He snarked that "Palin's endorsement is massive, because it will definitely get Palin's vote." As the hosts of The Five talked about Palin going for Trump over Cruz, Gutfeld said the fact that a strong religious conservative has abandoned another in favor of Trump shows "the opportunism of a lot of top conservatives who, when they saw the bandwagon, they jumped."

    Republican lawmakers reportedly laughed at House Speaker Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) after he told them he had been given a promise from Senate Democratic Leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV). Lawmakers were amused at Ryan's naiveté for thinking that Reid is someone their party can trust. "I know, I know," Ryan replied with a smile, according to The Hill. Reid and Ryan just finished working together to help pass a $1 trillion dollar spending bill, which many argue contained far more liberal policies than conservative ones. Reid has promised Ryan that he will return to regular order in the New Year....

In a press conference in the Philippines on Tuesday, he continued the anti-Republican narrative he set on Monday by mocking Republicans for talking tough, but running scared from widows and orphans. “First, they were worried about the press being too tough on them during debates. Now they’re worried about three-year-old orphans,” he said. “That doesn’t sound very tough to me.” Obama appeared personally disturbed by political conversation going on back in the United States, condemning Republicans for contributing to...

    Jeb Bush told reporters in Orlando on Monday that the Republican National Committee should still hold a planned primary debate with Miami-based Spanish-language broadcaster Telemundo. "We should have the debate," Bush said in both English and Spanish. "I think we ought to have a Telemundo debate, or a Hispanic debate. It happened four years ago. Telemundo's not part of the problem of CNBC. They (CNBC) just didn't keep their word."

    <p>Jeb Bush borders on creepy talking about how much he cares for his father, who, luckily, "is no longer watching CSI" because he is following the election campaign so closely. "I'd go to prison for him because, I love him so much. Thankfully I haven't had the need to do that."</p>

    Jeb Bush doesn't understand how hoodies work. And for some reason, Jeb Bush believes, apparently, that publicly demonstrating his lack of understanding of hoodies with a SF-based tech company schwag hoodie will somehow benefit him in the polls. When the younger Bush brother came to San Francisco last July, the presidential hopeful made a concerted effort to show plugged-in San Franciscans that he, too, understood the disruptive power of technology. This manifested in predictable ways, such as when he hailed an Uber on his way to visit SF-based Thumbtack. He also, it seems, took advantage of the classic tech-job perk:...

    EXCERPT Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush had an awkward response Wednesday during a Q&A at the Libre Forum in Las Vegas when he was asked to name his favorite superhero. The answer: Batman. The addendum no one asked for: Bush has eyes for "Supergirl" star Melissa Benoist. "I saw that "Supergirl" is on TV, Bush, the former Florida governor, said at the event, sponsored by the Koch brothers-backed Libre Initiative. I saw it when I was working out this morning. There's an ad promoting Supergirl. She looked kind of -- she looked pretty hot."

    According to Donald Trump, Janet Yellen's decision to delay hiking interest rates is motivated by politics. This is a political thing, keeping these interest rates at this level, Trump, the billionaire Republican presidential candidate, said in a Wednesday interview with Bloomberg Television's Stephanie Ruhle. Janet Yellen for political reasons is keeping interest rates so low that the next guy or person who takes over as president could have a real problem. That problem spurred by raising rates, Trump argued, could be a recession or worse. On the other hand, Trump faulted the Federal Reserve for not having acted sooner. Yellen...
