Koch Brothers’ Group Uses Health Care Law to Attack Democrats By JEREMY W. PETERS WASHINGTON — Americans for Prosperity, the political group backed by the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, is targeting three of the most vulnerable Senate Democrats who are up for re-election next year. The group’s efforts are part of a new $3.5 million attack advertising campaign that hammers lawmakers for supporting President Obama’s Health Care law. The senators — Mark Begich of Alaska, Kay Hagan of North Carolina and Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana — are all from conservative-leaning states that voted to elect Mitt Romney in 2012. The ads will start running in those states on Wednesday. Americans for Prosperity is also targeting three Democratic members of the House who are in danger of losing next year: Ron Barber of Arizona, Joe Garcia of Florida and Patrick Murphy, also of Florida. With the Health Care law’s flaws now front and center, Republicans and their allies have been trying to ratchet up ...
Chuck Todd: Boehner's Right And The White House Knows It On Morning Joe today, a clip was played of Speaker Boehner rejecting Obama's offer to permit insurers not to cancel non-complying policies for the next year. Boehner said he was "highly skeptical" the President "can do this administratively." NBC's Chuck Todd said the President didn't fix anything, "There's nothing that was fixed because he doesn't have the power to do it. John Boehner is right. And by the way, the White House knows it." On CBS This Morning, former GOP nominee Mitt Romney said "The real problem the President has is a broken promise. Millions of people are losing insurance and they were promised they would not. "It’s not going to be fixed until we fundamentally reshape Obamacare. Either repeal it, reshape it, or reform it.” On Fox, Charles Krauthammer said the press conference was for the benefit of "rebellious" House and Senate Democrats. This was "all about preventing an open rebellion among Democrats, which was provoked by the ...
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Advertisement Politics U.S. government shuts down By By Tom Cohen CNN Published On: Sep 30 2013 08:27:29 AM EDT Updated On: Oct 01 2013 06:41:41 AM EDT For the first time in 17 years, the U.S. government shut down at 12:01 a.m. ET Tuesday after the House and the Senate couldn't agree on a spending bill to fund the government. The two sides bickered and blamed each other for more than a week over Obamacare, the president's signature Health Care law. House Republicans insisted the spending bill include anti-Obamacare amendments. Senate Democrats were just as insistent that it didn't. With the shutdown underway, House members planned to have another vote overnight that would request a conference with the Senate to work out their differences. But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid already said he would not agree to such a meeting until the House presents a clean spending bill. "We will not go to conference with a gun to our head," Reid said late Monday night. "Tomorrow will be a bad day for ...

In fact, Mitt Romney’s Tea Party agenda has already been rejected in the Senate. In the past few months, we have voted down many of the major policies that Mitt Romney has run on, from the Ryan plan to end Medicare as we know it, to the Blunt Amendment to deny women access to contraception, to more tax giveaways for millionaires and billionaires, to a draconian spending plan that would gut critical services for seniors and the most vulnerable Americans. “Mitt Romney has demonstrated that he lacks the courage to stand up to the Tea Party, kowtowing to their demands time and again. There is nothing in Mitt Romney’s record to suggest he would act any differently as president. As governor of Massachusetts, he had a terrible relationship with Democrats, cordoning himself off behind a velvet rope instead of reaching out to build relationships. And in the near-decade that Mitt Romney has spent running for president, both his words and his actions have shown that pleasing the far right is more important to ...
The Wall Street Journal Updated October 28, 2012, 8:36 p.m. Harry Reid's Graveyard Senate Democrats are promising pre-emptive gridlock for 2013. Even if Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan win on November 6, his agenda will be stymied if Republicans can't pick up at least three more seats than their current 47 and control the Senate. That's clear from the last two years, when Harry Reid's not-so-deliberative body became the graveyard for fiscal and other reform. House Republicans won an historic midterm election in 2010, picking up 63 seats. They also gained six Senate seats, but a handful of weak GOP candidates (Sharron Angle, Ken Buck, Christine O'Donnell) cost them control of the upper body. Back in charge in 2011, Mr. Reid proceeded to stop nearly everything that House Republicans passed. President Obama hasn't even had to sweat a veto fight because nothing escapes Mr. Reid's lost world. Consider the record. In 2011 and 2012 the House passed more than three-dozen economic or jobs-related bills and with only a f ...
Senate Democrats pounced this morning on Mitt Romney’s 47% comment, using the Senate floor as a platform to take advantage of what the comment, they say, reveals about the Republican nominee for president. Senate Majority leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said that Romney’s fundraiser comments were a “rare look at the real Mitt Romney,” proving that he “doesn’t deserve to serve any American as president.” And Reid renewed his unsubstantiated charge that Mitt Romney, who likely makes most of his income through capital gains, may not have paid income tax in some years. Romney has said he paid at least a 13 percent tax rate for the past ten years. “For all we know Mitt Romney could be one of those who have paid federal income tax,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “Thousands of families making more than a million dollars per year pay no federal income tax.” The comment was part of a 30-minute speech riddled with controversial statements that was secretly videotaped and posted online this week. ...
Expectations for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are extremely high. Let's get real. They are NOT promising to return our nation to the constitution. They are NOT promising to solve all of our problems. They are NOT going to end the deficits that Senate Democrats refused to cut in half as Obama promised.
Carolyn Buller Let's talk about all the taxpayer money Oblamo has lost to the "green energy" rathole and compare it to all the jobs that Mitt Romney and Bain saved/created with not a single cent of taxpayer money! Let's talk about the fact that Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats have not offered a single budget in 3 years even though by law they must. Let's talk about the fact that 2 Obama budgets got shot down by Republicans and Democrats alike...99-0 both times. He isn't a leader, he is a flop.

The House GOP desperately wants this showdown, and President Obama is happy to give it to them.Obama and the Senate Democrats have set a trap for the Republicans. House Republicans are going to dig in on the Bush Tax Cuts, and everyday that this issue dominates the news will be a win for Obama. Voters agree with the president on this issue and the White House will be using using the House Republican opposition to talk about tax fairness, while Mitt Romney refuses to release his tax returns.
Sent to me in an email. "POTOMAC WATCH July 19, 2012, 7:20 p.m. ET . Strassel: Obama's Enemies List—Part II First an Obama campaign website called out Romney donor Frank Vandersloot. Next the IRS moved to audit him—and so did the Labor Department. By KIMBERLEY A. STRASSEL This column has already told the story of Frank VanderSloot, an Idaho businessman who last year contributed to a group supporting Mitt Romney. An Obama campaign website in April sent a message to those who'd donate to the president's opponent. It called out Mr. VanderSloot and seven other private donors by name and occupation and slurred them as having "less-than-reputable" records. Mr. VanderSloot has since been learning what it means to be on a presidential enemies list. Just 12 days after the attack, the Idahoan found an investigator digging to unearth his divorce records. This bloodhound - a recent employee of Senate Democrats - worked for a for-hire opposition research firm. Now Mr. VanderSloot has been targeted by the fede ...
IT'S NO LONGER BUSH'S FAULT! - IT'S ROMNEY'S FAULT Via Politico: AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is out with a scathing statement attacking Mitt Romney and “his Republican allies in Congress” on the June jobs report. “The cruel reality is Mitt Romney and his Republican allies in Congress are willing to sabotage the recovery in the hope of scoring political points against the President,” said Trumka Really ? Those Republican Congressmen have sent 24 ‘Jobs Bills’ Passed By the House to Harry Reid and Senate Democrats that they are holding and not even debating!
Who won the Supreme Court decision on Health Care last week? Mitt Romney. Now he finally has red meat to throw to his audience. The law won't be overturned, it will be enforced, and 35 million americans will be required to pay a tax or penalty they did not have to pay before. I cannot reconcile the Chief Justice's "switch" to his long-standing deference to the Legislative Branch, a deference that was absent in Citizens United, a decision that could have gone the other way simply by reasoning that corporations enjoy some constitutional protections, say the protection against having property seized unlawfully, but not all the protections of a "natural born citizen." Corporations cannot vote, for example. Maybe Roberts is a political player. He helps Obama get the masses stirred up against Obama and Democrats generally, the masses vote out Obama and sufficient Senate Democrats to end debate, and the the law is politically nullified. Maybe he swapped a vote for Obamacare in exchange for a vote against Roe v W ...
Opposing Unconstitutional Wars By Sen. Rand Paul Much has been speculated and written since my endorsement of Mitt Romney for president. Many in the liberty movement and my longtime supporters wondered if, as a result of endorsing someone for office, I would stand up to them when they went astray. The question to me is as strange as the answer is simple: Yes, strongly. Every time. I have always done what I believe and I have never been blinded by party. In my time in the United States Senate, I have opposed the USA Patriot Act, voted against the NDAA over indefinite detention, fought to end mandatory minimum drug sentences, and voted against my party’s official budget because it didn’t cut enough spending. I introduced a resolution against an unconstitutional war in Libya, and tried to repeal the authorization for the unconstitutional war before that in Iraq. I don’t believe any fair look at my record will show blind partisanship — or partisanship of any kind. I have worked with Senate Democrats o ...

Government & Politics A $6 Billion Bribe for the Youth Vote Leftists are to be judged only by a promised future, never by the present or by what has been delivered. Case in point: student loans. With student loan interest rates set to double in July to their normal, un-subsidized rates -- thanks to legislation passed by Democrats in 2007 -- Barack Obama is pushing to extend the current level of federal subsidy as part of his re-election campaign. For his part, Mitt Romney agrees. And why not? Neither are listening to Tea Party complaints that this is not government's role. In any case, the U.S. is nearly $16 trillion in debt, and it can't afford to subsidize student loans. Such facts are unpopular with both presidential candidates because -- so the line goes -- they will alienate a host of young voters who could decide the election. Incredibly, both the White House and Senate Democrats want to pay for the $6 billion, one-year extension with -- wait for it -- yet another new tax on small businesses. House ...

Republican leadership recruit him now so that other like minded democrats will follow. WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin says he’s unsure whether he’ll vote for his party’s leader, President Barack Obama, or the likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney. In a statement Friday, the West Virginia lawmaker said he had “some real differences” with both leaders, finding fault with Obama’s energy and economic policies while questioning whether Romney could understand the challenges facing ordinary people. “I strongly believe that every American should always be rooting for our president to do well, no matter which political party that he or she might belong to,” Manchin said. “With that being said, many West Virginians believe the last 3 ½ years haven’t been good for us, but we’re hopeful that they can get better.” RELATED: ROMNEY DISMISSES POLYGAMY REMARKS Manchin, one of the more moderate Senate Democrats, has broken with his party on several issues as he seeks re-elec ...
