The Senate Majority and Minority Leaders are two United States Senators who are elected by the party conferences that hold the majority and the minority respectively. These leaders serve as the chief Senate spokespeople for their parties and manage and schedule the legislative and executive business of the Senate. By rule, the Presiding Officer gives the Majority Leader priority in obtaining recognition to speak on the floor of the Senate.

In 2015 the House of Representatives, under the leadership of House Speaker John Boehner will introduce Articles of Impeachment against Barack Obama, President of the United States. These Artciles will then be passed by a majority vote in the House resulting in a trial in the Senate. A two thirds majority (67 votes) will then be required to convict and remove the president from office. Due to the recent cowardice shown by House & Senate Democrats in a party wide effort to distance themselves from President Obama in the lead up to the 2014 Midterm Elections, an acquittal is no sure thing. It is very possible that enough Senate Democratic senators will join their Republican colleagues in voting to convict to successfully remove President Obama from office. Make no mistake. Regardless of the wording of the charges in these impending Articles of Impeachment, in the eyes of the Republican Party the real crime committed by President Obama is the "crime" of having been born black and having had the audacit ...
Urgent Message for Tea Party Members (National Journal) – Super PACs spent July beefing up for the fall campaign. Many groups filed new disclosure reports this week, leaving a paper trail littered with big checks from big names. Democrats dominate the list of notable July donors, as there have simply been more Democratic dollars flowing to that type of outside group this year. There’s still plenty of conservative money out there; it’s just that more of it is going toward nonprofits, which don’t have to disclose their donors. Here are a handful of July super PAC donations that stood out. STEYER: Climate-change activist Tom Steyer gave the biggest super PAC donation in this month’s reports: $7.5 million to his own group, NextGen Climate. Steyer, who made his fortune as a successful hedge-fund manager, also spread some of that money around. NextGen gave a half-million dollars to Senate Majority PAC, the biggest Senate Democratic super PAC, and $150,000 to the League of Conservation Voters Victory F ...

A pillar is moving... This past Thursday, a Constitutional Amendment to overturn Citizens United, McCutcheon, and the other Supreme Court decision that collectively opened the floodgates for billionaires and corporations to buy our elections and corrupt our democracy passed the United States Senate Judiciary Committee with the support of Harry Reid and the Senate Democratic leadership. Now, Nancy Pelosi will introduce a version of the same amendment in the House tomorrow. We know the House Republicans won't allow it to pass and that this is in large part an effort by the Democrats to position themselves well for the November election. BUT the fact that the top leadership of one of our major parties is publicly, actively committing themselves to an Amendment (however imperfect this one may be) is a big victory for our movement and a sign of our growing strength. *They are responding to a public that we are mobilizing.* This article makes the case well.

The decision by Mr. McConnell, as well as Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn (R., Texas), to vote to advance the bill was a politically risky step because both are up for reelection in 2014. They face primary challenges from tea-party candidates who are sure to use this vote against them, as a sign that they are supporting big government spending. In the crucial procedural vote, 12 Republicans joined all 55 members of the Senate Democratic Caucus to advance the procedural measure. The Republicans were Sens. McConnell and Cornyn, Senate Policy Chairman John Barrasso of Wyoming, Senate Conference Chairman John Thune of South Dakota, as well as Sens. Bob Corker of Tennessee, Susan Collins of Maine, Mark Kirk of Illinois, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Mike Johanns of Nebraska, John McCain of Arizona, Jeff Flake of Arizona and Orrin Hatch of Utah. All 12 Republicans who voted for the procedural vote voted against final passage of the bill.

(HawaiiNewsNow) - U.S. Representative Colleen Hanabusa, who's trailing her Senate Democratic primary opponent, U.S. Senator Brian Schatz, by 2-to-1 in fundraising, got some high-powered help Monday (01/20) when she opened her campaign headquarters along Beretania Street in Chinatown, on Oahu. Former U.S. Senator Dan Akaka and former governors George Ariyoshi and Ben Cayetano joined Hanabusa to endorse her and officially kick off her campaign challenge against Schatz. Hanabusa, who was elected to the State Senate in 1998 and became State Senate vice president during Cayetano's second term as governor, frequently clashed with him. But Cayetano says that brought about a respect for Hanabusa, who says her campaign will benefit from the wisdom of those members of the Democratic Party establishment. She also said her campaign will also be helped by the legacy of the late Dan Inouye, who asked Gov. Neil Abercrombie to appoint Hanabusa to his U.S. Senate seat, but Abercrombie instead appointed his then-lieute ...

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) is exuding confidence over the 2014 elections, claiming that Obamacare will actually help Senate Democrats. Reid told The Hill, “I think for sure it will be a net positive. I think so by then for sure.” He added that because Senate Democrats have offered their input to the White House on the federal enrollment site HealthCare.gov, it has improved. “It’s gotten significantly better, but it was significantly bad so it has a long way to go.” Reid was delighted that Phil Schiliro, a senior White House adviser now in charge of implementing Obamacare, met with Senate Democratic incumbents in danger of losing their seats in 2014. He gushed, “Phil Schiliro … came up today and had a good meeting with my 2014ers. The discussions were led by [Senate Majority Whip *** Durbin [(D-IL)] and it was an extremely positive, good meeting. ...
Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Mobile, has spent the last several days fighting to undo cuts to veterans benefits that are included in the Ryan-Murray budget deal, which was passed by the House last week. The current legislation cuts veterans benefits by $6 billion over the next decade. The Senate is set to vote on the bill Tuesday morning. Both Sen. Sessions and fellow Alabamian Sen. Richard Shelby have said they are opposed to the current bill. Although it sailed through the House on a bipartisan vote of 332-94, Senate Democratic leaders indicated over the weekend that the bill’s passage is far from secured in the upper chamber. “The struggle is still on in the United States Senate,” Senate Majority Whip *** Durbin, D-Illinois, told Fox News on Sunday. But progress was made on Monday, leading aides on both sides of the aisle to predict that they will have the 60 votes needed to pass a procedural motion on Tuesday. They will then move move for final passage later in the week, which requires only a simple m ...
About the only good thing that can be said about the budget deal just patched together by House Republican budget chair Paul Ryan and Senate Democratic budget chair Patty Murray is that it’s opposed by the right-wing Heritage Foundation and the Koch brothers’ Americans for Prosperity. But that doesn’t mean it’s a good deal for the country. It doesn't close any tax loopholes for wealthy, or restore food stamps to poor, or extend unemployment benefits for 1.3 million jobless who will lose them in a few weeks. It keeps the sequester on the books (delaying it only two years). It contains no short-term stimulus, and does nothing about long-term deficit. Yes, it removes the treat of another government shutdown January 15 when the stopgap spending resolution that reopened the government in October runs out -- but this is mostly a relief to Republican leaders who don’t want the GOP to face the wrath of voters in the 2014 midterm elections over another shutdown, and who want to keep attention focused on ...

Ted Cruz Talk Dominates Annual Democratic Dinner Tonight is the Iowa Democratic Party's annual Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner. Iowa is the site of the first in the nation presidential precinct caucuses. Sen. Chuck Schumer (NY), the third ranking Democrat, was the keynote speaker and endorsed Hillary Clinton for President. He said with Clinton at the top of ticket in 2016 “We can vanquish Ted Cruz and his Tea Party Republicans. . . The only good thing that came out of the shutdown debacle was the self-inflicted damage to the GOP. . . "Cruz is guaranteed to deliver the White House to Democrats. If the Tea Party continues its grip on the GOP, they will lose dramatically and we will have a Democratic House. Let’s all stick together and make sure Cruz is the GOP candidate." Schumer said that was necessary to pass union card check and a cap and trade national energy tax. With his endorsement, Schumer joins the 16 Senate Democratic women who have written to Clinton asking her to run. The gathering was also add ...

This just in: WARNER, KAINE HIGHLIGHT SHUTDOWN IMPACT ON VIRGINIA, URGE HOUSE LEADERS TO RE-OPEN GOVERNMENT, PAY OUR BILLS, AND NEGOTIATE WASHINGTON, D.C. – Speaking on the steps of the U.S. Capitol today, U.S. Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine highlighted the ongoing negative impact of the government shutdown in Virginia, and again urged House Republican leaders to re-open government, pay the nation’s bills on time and negotiate on a long term budget. Kaine and Warner were joined by fellow members of the Senate Democratic Caucus. Sen. Warner highlighted the impact of the shutdown at the National Science Foundation, which funds 20 percent of America’s university-based research and employs 1,600 people in Arlington, and on the 3,500 workers at NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, who were sent home without pay beginning Oct. 1. “The piecemeal approach adopted by the House, where we reopen selected government functions in response to embarrassing media coverage, makes absolutely no ration . ...
Jake Miller — Government shutdown drags on; Congress to take Sunday off Oct 5, 2013 3:45AM EST With much of the federal government shut down for the fifth day, Congress has its hands full trying to reach an agreement on reopening the government, but one brief spot of compromise emerged on Friday, with Republicans and Democrats both voicing support for a proposal to restore back pay to federal employees who have been furloughed during the shutdown. The House will vote Saturday on the measure before recessing until Monday. The vote is expected to pass with bipartisan support. Senate Democratic leaders have not commented publicly on the proposal, but the White House has signaled its strong support. "Federal workers keep the Nation safe and secure and provide vital services that support the economic security of American families," a statement from the White House read. "The Administration appreciates that the Congress is acting promptly to move this bipartisan legislation and looks forward to the bill's swi ...
CRUZ STAYS AT CENTER OF FIERY SHOWDOWN By Gary Martin, San Antonio Express News October 1st, 2013 WASHINGTON -- Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas remained squarely in the center of a fiscal firestorm as Congress battled over a budget bill late Monday before the government was shut down. Critics brought up the issue of Cruz's own health insurance on the Senate floor. According to multiple reports, his insurance policy is through the employer of his wife, Heidi. She is a Goldman Sachs executive. Democrats quickly seized on the fact that Wall Street firms have some of the most generous health care plans for their executives, plans that are not available to most Americans. Cruz sought to sidestep the criticism and instead blamed Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid for failing to consider House-passes resolutions to keep the government open by defunding or delaying the Affordable Care Act. For the remainder of the story see the Express News or the Houston Chronicle.
Becoming Two Countries in 2014 Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at 4:40PM Tom Hayden in Domestic Policy, Politics, Social Movements United by the flag, but divided by its colors. (Photo: Getty 2013)The logic of voter turnout data all but guarantees right-wing Republican congressional victories in 2014 and a sealing of the divide of America into two countries for the foreseeable future. White House operatives privately acknowledge that GOP gerrymandering plus low turnout make 2014 a war to keep the Senate Democratic and show gains while losing the House. There are eight battleground Senate seats where Mitt Romney won the popular vote in 2012 and incumbent Democrats are either retiring or vulnerable to defeat. Even if Hillary Clinton manages to win in 2016, the battle for the House will favor the GOP since the current gerrymandered seats will remain intact until 2020, or even 2022. Assuming continued Democratic control of the White House and Senate in 2014, the opportunity to take back the Roberts Supreme Cour ...
Yellen Chances Grow as Obama Aides Test Senate Support The prospects of Janet Yellen becoming the next U.S. Federal Reserve chairman increased as White House officials began gauging lawmakers’ support and she won the backing of a top Senate Democrat. Senator Charles Schumer, the chamber’s No. 3 Democrat and a senior member of the Banking Committee, yesterday called Yellen, currently the Fed’s vice chairman, an “excellent choice” to succeed Ben S. Bernanke when his term expires on Jan. 31. President Barack Obama’s aides, meanwhile, have begun making calls to U.S. Senate offices to discuss the process of selecting the next central bank chief, mentioning Yellen by name, according to three Senate Democratic staff members. The developments suggest that “the appointment of Yellen is coming and it’s coming soon,” Sarah Binder, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution who studies the relationship between the Fed and Congress, said in an interview. “Given they said they’d limit themselves ...
Sudden plan: Syria to dispose of chemical weapons? WASHINGTON (AP) — In a rapid and remarkable chain of events, Syria welcomed the idea of turning over all of its chemical weapons for destruction on Monday, and President Barack Obama, though expressing deep skepticism, declared it a "potentially a significant breakthrough" that could head off the threats of U.S. air strikes that have set the world on edge. The administration pressed ahead in its efforts to persuade Congress to authorize a military strike, and Obama said the day's developments were doubtless due in part to the "credible possibility" of that action. He stuck to his plan to address the nation Tuesday night, while the Senate Democratic leader postponed a vote on authorization. The sudden developments broke into the open when Russia's foreign minister, seizing on what appeared at the time to be an off-the-cuff remark by Secretary of State John Kerry, appeared in Moscow alongside his Syrian counterpart and proposed the chemical weapons turnov ...

Where Have All the Liberals Gone? By Dana Milbank, The Washington Post 15 June 13 here have all the liberals gone? President Obama, who as a Democratic senator accused the Bush administration of violating civil liberties in the name of security, now vigorously defends his own administration's collection of Americans' phone records and Internet activities. Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid said he thinks Congress has done sufficient intelligence oversight. His evidence? Opinion polls. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi defended the programs' legality and said she wants Edward Snowden prosecuted for leaking details of the secret operations. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairwoman of the Senate intelligence committee, accused Snowden of treason and defended false testimony given to her committee by the director of national intelligence, who in March had denied the programs' existence. With some exceptions, progressive lawmakers and the liberal commentariat have been passive and acquiescent toward the sec ...

Below is an excerpt from my most recent constituent update email. The question is whether to pay or not pay the 38 Studios bonds. Right now I lean toward no but am open to a convincing argument as to why we should. Perhaps my friends from outside the state can weigh in with a neutral perspective. In any event, if anyone feels some of my comments toward those responsible for this mess, of both parties, were too harsh I tend to think they were not harsh enough: 38 Studios Bond Repayment One of the key issues that we may see in the budget has to do with repayment of the 38 Studios bonds. That debacle, which lies entirely at the feet of former Governor Carcieri, the old EDC, and the House and Senate Democratic leadership which surely knew exactly what the money was going to be used for at the time they misled the rest of the legislature about the purpose of the EDC funding bill that led to the loan guarantees, has the state theoretically on the hook for anywhere from $50-$100 million depending on w ...
