Poll: Americans Tuning Out Political Class

A new Politico poll finds 57% of likely voters disapprove of Obama's job performance and essentially split on which party they prefer. Respondents were drawn from areas with competitive House and Senate races this November. The poll also shows that voters are tuning out political leaders, establishment and grass roots, in both parties. Jul 21, 2014 11:10 AM PT

Scott Brown: Obama Policies 'Almost a Magnet' for Illegals

The unfolding illegal immigration crisis at the southern border is likely to change the political calculus of the fall midterm elections. Even in states far from the border, like New Hampshire, the situation is altering the political dynamics on the ground. Former MA Sen. Scott Brown, a moderate Republican, recently criticized his Democrat opponent NH Sen. Jeanne Shaheen and Obama for supporting policies that created the crisis. Jul 18, 2014 9:22 AM PT

GOP Lost at the Border

The central weakness of the Republican's political position in Washington has been on vivid display as the situation at the southern border has devolved into a complete crisis. As tens of thousands of foreign nationals overwhelm the border and render our sovereign boundary meaningless, Republicans in DC are tinkering with legislative fixes they say will address the situation. As if the crisis at the border is the result of some drafting error or a failure to enact some specific law relevant to this precise set of circumstances. It is a fool's errand.

House GOP: Reverse Obama's Home Health Care Cuts

On Tuesday, GOP Reps. Greg Walden and Tom Price introduced legislation to reverse the Obama Administration's decision to cut payments for home health-care services by 14%. The planned cuts, the maximum allowed under ObamaCare, jeopardize health care services for more than 3 million services and threaten to push 40% of home health care providers into bankruptcy.

3 Myths of the Highway Fund 'Crisis'

The Obama White House is preparing the ground for a late-summer fight with the GOP over the "highway trust fund" and infrastructure spending. In the next month or so, the federal "highway trust fund," effectively, will temporarily run out of money. The media will likely inflate this into a "crisis" and finger it as the culprit for bad economic news. This coming attraction, though, is based on three major myths. Jul 15, 2014 9:13 AM PT

Retail Sales Again Miss Expectations

The Commerce Department reported Tuesday that retail sales grew an anemic 0.2% in June, well below expectations. Economists had predicted a 0.6% increase. June's growth in retail sales was the slowest in 5 months. The report indicates that consumers continue to struggle for footing in the weak economy. Jul 15, 2014 9:06 AM PT

Dems Trounce House GOP in Grass-Roots Donations

The DCCC, the campaign arm for Rep. Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats, has raised $22 million more than the House GOP for the fall elections. That result is surprising enough, as Democrats' minority status gives them little political leverage in the House. More surprising, though, is that Democrats have raised almost three times as much money, $46 million v. $17 million, as Republicans from small-dollar grass roots donors. Recent polling would suggest the opposite situation. Jul 11, 2014 11:55 AM PT

Speakings Fees Potentially Huge Tax Deduction for Hillary

Trying to quell a controversy over a $225,000 speaking fee at UNLV, Hillary Clinton told ABC News Friday that all her speaking fees from colleges were "donated" to the family's Clinton Foundation. It naturally didn't occur to ABC News to ask whether Hillary deducted this "pass-through" from her taxes, as would likely be legal under the tax code. Jul 6, 2014 8:56 AM PT

June Jobs Report Confirms Economic Stall

While this top-line job growth is generally good news, a deeper look at the numbers show the economy is far from achieving the breakout growth many economists have been expecting. In the most meaningful sense, the economy is still limping forward. Jul 3, 2014 12:47 PM PT

Business Insider: Economy Needs Crony Capitalism

Now that there are major warning signs that the dismal economic “recovery” under President Obama is faltering, Business Insider, which has seized on obscure data points to cheerlead for an economic “breakout,” appears to be looking for scapegoats. Jun 29, 2014 12:45 PM PT

Sun Setting on Obama's Economic 'Recovery'

On Wednesday, the Commerce Department again revised its estimate of 1st Quarter GDP. Instead of the anemic 01.% growth initially reported, the economy shrank by 2.9% in the first 3 months of the year. The 3-percentage point downgrade was the largest revision in US history. The economic contraction was the biggest since Obama first took office. Jun 29, 2014 9:46 AM PT

Personal Consumption Falls as Weather Warms

On Thursday, the Commerce Department reported that personal consumption, which makes up around three-fourths of the economy, fell in May, further undermining claims that a particularly cold winter was behind the recent economic slowdown. Jun 29, 2014 9:35 AM PT

Recording Industry Battles Online Radio

Allies of the recording industry in Congress have introduced new legislation to change copyright law in the face of a new, online landscape. But the proposal is facing criticism that it would insulate entrenched players in the market from competition, hurting consumers. Jun 23, 2014 6:21 PM PT

Christie-Backed Casino Goes Bust in NJ

The long-stalled project was only completed after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie invested $260 million in tax rebates to help jump-start the failing project. It was part of a government-directed plan to "revitalize" Atlantic City. Now, it appears Christie's bet is bust. Jun 22, 2014 11:06 AM PT
