The Federal Communications Commission says a controversial study of the nation's newsrooms is being reworked, but House Republicans aren't taking any chances.
Rep. John Dingell, who played a key role in some of the biggest liberal legislative victories of the past 60 years, said Monday that he will not try to add to what is already the longest congressional career in history.
Rep. John D. Dingell, the longest-serving congressman in history, announced Monday he’s so fed up with Washington politics that he’s retiring, ending a storied career that’s lasted nearly six decades.
The Federal Communications Commission finds itself on the defensive over a proposed research project that critics say directly threatens First Amendment protections for the news media.
President Obama's top health official said Tuesday that 2014 marks a "new day in health care for millions of Americans," with more than 2 million people having enrolled in a private plan as of Saturday and nearly 4 million finding out they're eligible for Medicaid or the Children's Health Insurance Program through the end of November.
Amid all the news coverage of the ill-begotten Healthcare.gov website and other Obamacare problems, it would have been easy to overlook a recent announcement from two leaders of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The announcement is too important to go unnoticed.
The Obama administration changed the new health care law in midstream once again Thursday, this time by tweaking deadlines and leaning on the good graces of insurers to help people who risk losing health coverage in the new year.
President Obama's top health official said Wednesday she directed her agency's inspector general to investigate the flawed rollout of the federal website tied to Obamacare, which has cost $677 million and is gaining enrollees after an extensive effort to patch up software problems and add capacity.
In 2009, a House Republican amendment to the Affordable Care act would have codified into law that Americans who liked their plan could keep it, but the amendment was killed in committee by Democrats, National Review Online reports.
A new report from a consulting firm indicates the White House was warned of Obamacare rollout glitches as far back as the spring — a significant claim, given the administration's insistence that the president wasn't aware of any problems until after the enrollment website went active.
Apologies are inexpensive, even when delivered with a lollipop. President Obama says he's "sorry" about the Obamacare fiasco, but what he's mostly sorry about is the damage done to his credibility. Mr. Obama acknowledged, belatedly, that the health care takeover with his name on it has caused millions to lose their insurance coverage despite his ironclad assurances that they never would.
House Republicans hope President Obama will follow up his apology late Thursday to Americans losing their existing health plans by supporting a bill they are offering that will let these same people maintain their coverage for another year.
President Obama’s top health care official apologized Wednesday for the broken Obamacare website and said it would take another month to fix — but even as she defended the law as a good deal for most Americans, she said there was no reason for her to have to purchase coverage from the exchanges.
President Obama's top health official admitted to Congress on Wednesday that Obamacare's main website faces a litany of problems, including the delivery of inaccurate data to insurers and glitches that do not allow uninsured Americans to enroll, resulting in a "miserably frustrating experience for way too many Americans."
The endgame all along has been single-payer, government-run health care
