Bad news for Democrats: New polling numbers put Republicans far ahead in the vote count for the 2014 elections, due primarily to the botched rollout of Obamacare and the broken promise by the president that Americans could keep their current health care plans.
A disconcerting reminder: The federal government is only funded for the next 49 days. The money runs out exactly seven weeks from Wednesday, on Jan. 15 to be exact. But no one is thinking about this as holiday time bustles in — or are they?
President Obama on Thursday expressed strong support for Senate Democrats' move to enact the so-called "nuclear option" and alter congressional rules to clear the way for judicial and other executive nominees.
Although President Obama supported Senate Democrats' argument Thursday that Republicans are treating his nominees unfairly, Mr. Obama was singing a different tune just two weeks ago while raising money from liberal supporters.
There's no do-over of elections. However fervently many Americans might want to turn back the clock to replace Barack Obama with Mitt Romney, they can't. Higher taxes, more spending and Obamacare are with us until Jan. 20, 2017. According to a new ABC News poll, most Americans think Mr. Obama is not a strong leader, that he doesn't understand the problems of Americans, that he's neither honest nor trustworthy, and he's a terrible manager. Mr. Romney, the pollsters found, would defeat the president in an election today. What a difference Obamacare makes.
The tumultuous Beltway fight over Americans who lost their health plans because of Obamacare is shifting to the states, where regulators will decide whether to heed President Obama's proposal to let Americans renew their plans — or rebuff him to preserve the core mission of his signature law.
Tea partyers rejected the notion Wednesday that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will make inroads with the grass-roots movement after his landslide re-election win, saying the tough-talking Republican is another Northeast "RINO" and pick of a corrupt GOP establishment.
So the Democrats took Virginia and the moderate Gov. Chris Christie won another term in New Jersey, but Republicans shouldn't cower under progressives' cheers and take an ideological turn to the middle, said tea party favorite and former Florida lawmaker Allen B. West.
Democrats spent heavily to win the Virginia governorship Tuesday, but Republicans said by making the race far closer than polls had projected just a few weeks ago, Kenneth T. Cuccinelli's campaign showed how much of a weapon Obamacare can be in the hands of the GOP.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie marched toward a landslide re-election victory Tuesday and began setting his sights on 2016 by insisting he was a true conservative Virginia, Democrats pressed to sweep a traditionally red state's top three ticket spots on the coattails of former Clinton money man Terry McAuliffe's campaign for governor.
Senate Republicans on Thursday filibustered one of President Obama's nominees to sit on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, arguing that although the woman is well-qualified, confirmation would allow Democrats to shift the political balance to the left on the country's second most important court.
Chris Christie's ability to win-over blue-state voters has helped him build massive lead heading into his Nov. 5 race against Democrats state Sen. Barbara Buono.
National Republicans are pouring money into the campaign of Republican attorney general candidate Mark D. Obenshain, attempting to salvage at least one of the top three statewide offices they swept four years ago in Virginia.
Sen. Joe Manchin III, a critic of the troubled Obamacare rollout, believes the program can work if everyone gets on the same page and joins "Team America."
Pressure is mounting on Senate Democrats, notably those up for re-election in Republican-leaning states next year, to deal with Obamacare's flawed rollout when they get back to work Monday.
