'Generation Wait': Youth Mobility Lowest in 50-Years

A great puzzle for future political scientists is the fact that young people overwhelmingly supported President Obama, even though his policies were economically damaging for them. Facing a sluggish economy, weak job market and student debt, young adults are increasingly staying put and not moving to pursue a job or career. In fact, the mobility of young adults is at its lowest level since 1963. Nov 16, 2013 8:48 AM PT

39 Democrats Break With Obama to Pass Upton 'Fix'

On Friday, the House of Representatives approved legislation sponsored by Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) that would allow insurers to continue to offer policies on the individual market.

Countdown: US Hits Debt Ceiling in 84 Days

Twelve weeks from today, the US government will hit its borrowing limit. When Congress lifted the debt ceiling last month, for the first time ever, it pegged the increase to a specific date, rather than a dollar amount. The current borrowing authority expires in just 84 days, on February 7th. Nov 15, 2013 7:15 AM PT

Obama Is 'Winging It' on ObamaCare

The media profile of President Obama is that he is a brilliant, cool and confident leader. He takes a very deliberate approach to policy and doesn't get flustered by the ups-and-downs of the office. It is a very thin line, though, between calm and aloof, confident and arrogant. Obama's reaction to the disastrous rollout of ObamaCare is anything but deliberate. The White House seems to be responding on the fly. Nov 15, 2013 5:55 AM PT

Obama: People Can Keep Cancelled Plans Until After the Midterms

On Thursday, President Obama unveiled another "fix" for ObamaCare. Americans who had their insurance plans cancelled, because they didn't meet all of ObamaCare's coverage mandates, can renew those policies for another year. Presumably, their plans would be cancelled at the end of 2014, after the midterm elections. Nov 14, 2013 9:51 AM PT

10 Senate Dems Who Should Apologize for ObamaCare

Last week, President Obama apologized for misleading the American public with his false claim that "if you like your insurance, you can keep it." Without this assurance, it is unlikely ObamaCare would have passed. Obama was not the only politician fudging the truth. Most Democrat lawmakers repeated this claim on the campaign trail and in meetings with constituents. If Obama apologized, they should as well, as they are equally culpable. Nov 13, 2013 9:53 PM PT

Just 27k Enroll in Federal ObamaCare Exchanges

The Obama Administration admitted on Wednesday that just over 100,000 people had enrolled for coverage through the ObamaCare health exchanges. The number was one-fifth the number predicted by the Administration in early September. Most of these enrollments, however, were through state exchanges. Just under 27,000 people enrolled through the federal exchanges. Nov 13, 2013 2:19 PM PT

Insurers Will Panic If Obamacare Misses Nov 30 Deadline

The Washington Post reported Thursday that the Healthcare.gov website isn't likely to be fully functional by the White House's self-imposed November 30th deadline. After the site's disastrous launch on October 1st, the Obama Administration promised a "tech surge" and promised that the site would be fixed at the end of November. The White House will obviously be embarrassed if the new deadline is missed. The bigger consequence, though, is that health insurers will starting panicking. Nov 13, 2013 11:23 AM PT

Obama Apologized. When Will Senate Dems?

Last week, President Obama was forced to apologize for misleading Americans with his oft-repeated claim that "if you like your plan, you can keep it. Period." Obama, however, wasn't the only politician reassuring voters with the claim. Most of the Senate Democrats also said people could keep their insurance. When will they apologize?

ObamaCare Cuts Out Consumer, Pays Subsidy Directly to Insurer

Millions of Americans are expressing "sticker-shock" as they learn about the dramatic increases in health insurance premiums, as a result of ObamaCare. The Obama Administration downplays these concerns, noting that many will qualify for subsidies to make coverage more affordable. The subsidies, however, do not go to the individual policyholder. The Treasury will send the subsidies directly to the insurance companies. Its a huge leap towards a single-payer system. Nov 13, 2013 6:48 AM PT

White House, Schumer Scuttled House Immigration Deal

Earlier this year, negotiators in the House were on the cusp of a deal on immigration reform. It had a pathway to legalization Democrats wanted and strict enforcement triggers Republicans wanted. Democrat Rep. Luis Guitierrez, a long-time advocate for amnesty, says he then got a phone call from the White House opposing the proposed deal. Soon after, Sen. Chuck Schumer called to put the brakes on the House deal. Nov 12, 2013 9:56 AM PT

Vulnerable Red State Dem Wants ObamaCare Investigation

The millions of Americans receiving cancellation notices on their insurance policies aren't the only potential victims of ObamaCare. Increasingly, Red State Democrat Senators up for reelection next year worry that the myriad of problems with the rollout of ObamaCare will prompt voters to send them a cancellation notice on their political careers. North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan is trying to inoculate herself by pushing for a sweeping investigation into all aspects of the ObamaCare rollout. Nov 12, 2013 7:42 AM PT

Google Tries to Game Patent Law for Profit

Over the past decade, Google has gone from free market darling to an almost ward of the government. The company, whose relationship with the Obama Administration is well documented has quietly grown its lobbying budget in Washington making it the eight largest lobbying shop in the nation’s capital. We now are getting a glimpse of what they are buying. Nov 11, 2013 9:56 AM PT

Issa Subpoenas White House Tech Chief

On Friday, Rep. Darrell Issa issued a subpoena, compelling the testimony of Todd Park, the White House Chief Technology Officer, at a hearing next week on the failed rollout of Healthcare.gov. The White House had said that Mr. Park was "too busy" fixing the failed ObamaCare website to testify at this time. Nov 9, 2013 10:23 AM PT

National Journal: How Obama Blew 2013

Just a year ago, President Obama, seen as vulnerable since the 2010 midterm handily defeated Mitt Romney to win an historic second term. The GOP still controlled the House, but Democrats kept their majority in the Senate, an outcome that seemed impossible a year earlier. Obama's approval ratings rose and he confidently predicted that his reelection would break the Republican "fever" in Washington. Instead, National Journal, a respected liberal publication, argues he "blew it." Obama lost 2013. Nov 8, 2013 9:41 AM PT
