The Washington Times' political blog.
Puff, puff ... nah, I'll pass: That's apparently the sentiment of half of likely voters in the country as Colorado begins the public sale of marijuana for recreational use this week.
Six in 10 likely U.S. voters say the federal government should cut spending to deal with the nation's current economic problems, a new poll shows.
It appears both gun control and gun rights activists in Washington could have a say at the ballot box on whether the so-called "gun show loophole" that allows private dealers to sell guns without conducting background checks should be closed.
Dr. Ben Carson's weekly opinion column in The Washington Times will now be syndicated nationwide with Creators Syndicate, the newspaper announced Friday.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the country is headed in the wrong direction, and 70 percent aren't confident the federal government will make progress on important problems and issues in the country in 2014.
Though the Obama administration hasn't provided specific demographic details on who has signed up for health insurance through the president's health care law, it's clear from heavy advertising campaigns that so-called "young invincibles" are among the most coveted.
President Obama eventually embraced and used the term "Obamacare," a word opponents of his signature health care law — formally called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act — began employing during the legislative debate and after it passed in 2010.
New Hampshire state Rep. David Campbell has apologized for running over some ducks that didn't get out of the way of his BMW on Dec. 23, saying that the incident was accidental and unintentional.
Calling attention to a crime that affects one out of six American women, President Obama on Tuesday signed a proclamation observing January as "National Stalking Awareness Month."
Sen. Bob Casey, Pennsylvania Democrat, said that if extending unemployment benefits for an estimated 1.3 million people who were cut off on Dec. 28 requires finding spending offsets elsewhere, Congress "can and should" ferret out the savings to do it.
Sen. Tim Kaine, Virginia Democrat, says his New Year's Resolution for 2014 is to improve an area of what he called his own "dismal performance" in 2013: baseball trivia.
Two new polls show President Obama's approval rating remains below 50 percent, but that it's ticked back up after plummeting in the wake of a string of terrible news for, and missteps by, the administration, notably the botched rollout of his health care law and new revelations about National Security Agency surveillance.
New Hampshire state Rep. David Campbell has admitted to smashing into a group of ducks — reportedly killing at least one — and leaving the scene before police arrived.
Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean said Monday that the mandate in President Obama's health care law stipulating that virtually all Americans must buy health insurance or pay a fine wasn't necessary.
Former Rep. Ron Paul, Texas Republican, said in his weekly column that "raising the minimum wage actually harms those at the bottom of the income ladder" and raising it by "government decree" "appeals to those who do not understand economics."
