3 Ways GOP Could Blow Midterm Elections

Most pundits and political professionals expect the GOP to have a good showing in the midterm elections. Historically, the opposition picks up seats in the 6th year of a President's tenure. Obama's approval ratings are at rock bottom and the ObamaCare rollout continues to cause headaches for Democrats. A number of incumbent Senators, who last won during Obama's wave election in 2008, face heavy headwinds in enough states to give Republicans control. Jan 27, 2014 11:52 AM PT

Dem Rep Warns of ObamaCare 'Death Spiral'

Democrat Rep. Jim Moran appeared on a DC public radio station Friday and expressed his growing fear over the fate of ObamaCare. His chief concern is that not enough young people are signing up for insurance. Critics of the law have said a lack of young people in the program could spark a cost "death spiral," dramatically driving up insurance rates. Jan 27, 2014 8:25 AM PT

The Tawdriness of the McDonnells' Alleged Corruption

Reading the 43-page indictment of Bob and Maureen McDonnell provides a glimpse of the intersection of politics and money. Many of the alleged gifts and actions listed, however, don't seem especially extraordinary in today's political environment. What is breathtaking, though, is how tawdry the allegations are. One almost feels sympathy for the Star Scientific CEO, who the McDonnell family treated as something of a mark. Jan 26, 2014 9:25 AM PT

Dems Discuss 'Income Inequality' at Grammys, Posh St. Regis

Democrats have made the issue of "income inequality" the cornerstone of their platform going into the November elections. In less than two months, the House Democrats will discuss this and other issues at the swanky and posh St. Regis hotel in Manhattan. Rooms start at $695 a night if you would like to join them.

Christie Controls $100 Million to Support Fellow GOP Govs

At the end of last year, embattled NJ Gov. Chris Christie took control of the Republican Governors Association (RGA), which acts as a kind of super-pac for GOP gubernatorial campaigns. In 2010, a cycle comparable to the upcoming elections, the RGA spent well over $100 million to support GOP campaigns for governor. Governors up for reelection in November have been among the first to defend Christie in his current scandal. Jan 21, 2014 3:05 PM PT

GOP Establishment Candidate Hit for Lobbying Past

The GOP establishment got its preferred candidate in a Florida special election when David Jolly defeated state Rep. Kathleen Peters in a Republican primary earlier this month. Jolly is a former staffer for deceased Rep. Bill Young who has been a lobbyist in DC for the past several years. He faces Democrat Alex Sink in the March 11th primary to fill-out the remainder of Young's term. Democrats are seizing on his lobbying past. Jan 21, 2014 4:49 AM PT

House Dems Misspell Their Own Website in Ad

A new ad from the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) looks to have had about as much review as the ObamaCare website. The ad, targeting Rep. Joe Heck, misspells the DCCC's website. Amazingly, considering it is 2014, and not 1994, the creators of the ad left a "w" out of the URL address. Quality control. Jan 17, 2014 8:59 AM PT

Debt Deal May Clear Keystone Pipeline

On Thursday, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said the US would exhaust its borrowing authority in late February, rather than early March as originally estimated. If Congress doesn't lift the debt ceiling by then, the government would have to prioritize its payments to avoid missing interest payments on its debt. Jan 16, 2014 10:25 AM PT

Unions Give $765k to GOP 'Main Street' PAC

Former Rep. Steve LaTourette (R-OH) was one of the more labor-friendly Republicans in Congress. Those close ties are paying off for him as labor unions are a major donor to his "Defending Main Street" Super-PAC, which is targeting conservatives in upcoming primaries. So far, unions have contributed $765,000 to support LaTourette's efforts. The figure represents 86% of the PAC's current cash-on-hand. Jan 16, 2014 8:09 AM PT

House Dems Trash ObamaCare in Campaign Ad

House Majority PAC, a Democrat super-PAC supporting Congressional Democrats, is running a new ad in support of vulnerable incumbent Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick (D-AZ). The ad trashes the rollout out of ObamaCare's health exchanges. Jan 16, 2014 7:09 AM PT

NC Dem Sen Kay Hagan Trails All Republican Rivals

ObamaCare continues to wreck havoc on Democrats' chances this November. A new poll by Democrat firm Public Policy Polling finds incumbent Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) trailing ALL of her potential Republican rivals. This is in spite of the fact that many of the possible Republican challengers have very little name recognition in the state. These polls results are personal to Hagan. Jan 14, 2014 10:09 AM PT

Rand Paul Accuses Obama of 'Lie of the Century'

On Tuesday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), in a speech at the Heritage Foundation said that “It might be the biggest lie of the century to say 'if you like your doctor, you can keep him or her." President Obama made this claim repeatedly on the campaign trail. At the end of 2013, liberal "fact-checker" PolitiFact called it the "lie of the year." It is likely to haunt Democrats in November.

GOP Myths About Conservative Candidates

The pundit class and the GOP establishment currently are engaged in massive "concern trolling" over the possibility that Republican voters will elect conservatives in party primaries. Karl Rove, the US Chamber of Commerce and other special interests have vowed to spend whatever it takes to prevent citizens from nominating the "wrong" candidates. Setting aside the conceit that these interests know better than voters who should represent them, are these concerns even valid? Jan 13, 2014 9:35 AM PT

Congress Scrambles to Finish Budget

On Friday, House Republicans introduced legislation to extend the government's spending authority for three days beyond next week's January 15th deadline. The extension would avoid a government shutdown and allow more time for negotiators to finalize an omnibus spending bill. The omnibus bill will specific exact spending for every government program and function. Jan 11, 2014 9:02 AM PT
