'Settled' Science on Saturated Fats Revised

For decades, Americans have organized their diet in a way to minimize their intake of saturated fats like butter and red meat. Vegetable oils and carbohydrates became a bigger part of our diet, because, we were repeatedly told, animal fats led to heart disease. May 3, 2014 11:12 AM PT

Obamacare Slashes Senior Home Health Care Services

In early April, the Obama Administration delayed cuts in the Medicare Advantage program mandated by the ObamaCare law. These plans, used by 30% of Medicare beneficiaries, supplement traditional Medicare coverage. The planned cuts to the MA program risked a political firestorm just months before the midterm elections. While MA received a short-term pardon, the Obama Administration is going forward with dramatic cuts to home health care services for seniors. Apr 23, 2014 7:59 PM PT

Poll: Democrats in Worse Position Than 2010

A new Fox News poll goes a long way to explaining the growing anxiety among Democrats about the upcoming midterm elections. Not only is support for Obama and his signature ObamaCare law underwater, both are more unpopular than they were at this point ahead of the mid-term elections in 2010. Support for the Democrats and ObamaCare, in fact, is less than it was on the eve of the 2010 election, when Republicans routed Democrats up and down the ballot. Apr 22, 2014 9:08 AM PT

Senate Democrats Forced to Defend More Seats

In even a neutral political environment, the 2014 midterms were going to be a challenge for Senate Democrats. They are defending 21 seats to the GOP's 15, with only two of the Republican seats at any kind of risk of flipping to the Democrats. Moreover, Democrats were defending many freshman Senators who first won office in in Republican states in Obama's wave election in 2008. This isn't a neutral political environment, however.

Obama, Greens Undercut Landrieu Reelection on Keystone Pipeline

Embattled Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) has made her position as Chair of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee a center-piece of her reelection campaign. The first ad of her campaign, in fact, touted this position and claimed she would be able to expand oil and gas production that is so vital to her state's economy. Her argument that she can deliver for her constituents was severely undercut when the Obama Administration announced late Friday that it was again delaying a decision on approving the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

HHS Moves to Cancel More Insurance Plans

The Department of Health and Human Services is proposing a rule that would, if implemented, guarantee that even more Americans who like their health insurance plans cannot keep them. Apr 18, 2014 9:20 AM PT

Illinois Taxpayers to Give $100 Million for Obama Library

On Thursday, a committee in the Illinois Legislature approved a plan to spend $100 million in taxpayer funds to help build a presidential library for Barack Obama. While libraries for Bill Clinton and George W Bush were entirely funded by private donations, the Illinois proposal would, perhaps fittingly, build the Obama library on a foundation of public funds.

Democrats Hope Pot Gives Them Boost in Florida

Democrat operatives are openly touting a medical marijuana ballot initiative in Florida as a means of helping Democrats win elections in 2014, saying the move, which will likely help bring young voters to the poll, is necessary for the greater good. Apr 14, 2014 6:59 AM PT

Sebelius Resignation a Nightmare for Democrats

On Thursday, less than two weeks after telling the press she was going to "stick around," HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced her resignation from the Obama Administration. The announcement caught Washington by surprise, as the chattering class had only recently convinced itself that the troubles for the health care law were in the rear-view mirror. The resignation, though, now triggers two words that could prove a nightmare for Democrats and their hope to stave off disaster in November: "Confirmation Hearing". Apr 11, 2014 8:16 AM PT

Reagan Recovery Was Double the Obama 'Recovery'

As the US approaches the 5th anniversary of the end of the "Great Recession," data from across the spectrum continues to show a weak economy. Whether sales, earnings, or jobs, the data can be best described as mixed. Apr 9, 2014 10:14 AM PT
