It's amazing how some politicians are quick to support the troops in patriotic-themed photo ops, impassioned speeches and effusive press releases — only to forget about the very same people used as political props once they emerge as political rivals.
The new year brings bad tidings to corn. The Midwestern states have been harvesting bushels of cash from the 2007 congressional directive requiring gasoline refineries to adulterate the fuel with corn, but the good times may soon end. This reform is possible now that certain liberal dreamers acknowledge that the scheme serves neither an economic nor environmental purpose.
Hundreds of high-volume private gun dealers are transferring tens of thousands of firearms every year over the Internet without conducting background checks, according to a report from the gun control advocacy group Mayors Against Illegal Guns based on an investigation conducted from August to October.
The Senate voted Monday to extend a ban on undetectable plastic guns for 10 years just hours before the act was scheduled to expire, but advocates lamented that it didn't go far enough and vowed to push forward to expand it in the near future.
After sidestepping the issue for weeks, President Obama on Thursday apologized to Americans who are losing their health insurance despite his repeated and emphatic promises that it wouldn't happen.
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."
Besieged by the Obama administration and its host of new environmental regulations, the U.S. coal industry is beginning to fight back.
The rollout of healthcare.gov has been a complete disaster ("Embarrassing Obama," Comment & Analysis, Oct. 11). Stories of the site malfunctioning are being reported everywhere. Regular Americans are having extreme difficulty signing up. Even liberals such as Sen. Joe Manchin III, West Virginia Democrat, and TV entertainer Jon Stewart think a delay of the individual mandate would be a good idea.
Congress approved a bill Thursday that guarantees death benefits for families of service members killed in action during the government shutdown, and President Obama signed it despite the White House having said it already had found a solution and the legislation isn't needed.
Two weeks ago President Obama's nominee to head the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission tried to walk back an earlier statement that natural gas is a "dead-end" fuel. Ron Binz's flip-flop didn't change any minds, and now it's his nomination that's hit a dead end.
Washington loves the blame game, and President Obama most of all. He woke up Tuesday morning with his finger primed to point at "one faction of one party in one house of Congress" for the partial government shutdown. He was, of course, talking about the conservative House Republicans he can't criticize often or harshly enough, but his words apply more accurately to the red-state Democrats in the Senate.
With passions running high over the fate of Obamacare, President Obama said Thursday there's "no widespread evidence" his national health care program is hurting jobs, even as the administration announced another delay in implementing the law.
President Obama's nominee to a top energy post is hanging on by a thread after a poor performance last week at a confirmation hearing where he failed to win over key supporters and even appeared to have misled a Senate committee about his record of support for a coal-fired energy plant.
On the same day that lawmakers acknowledged that any attempt to crack down on firearms stands virtually no chance on Capitol Hill, President Obama made his strongest plea to date on the need to confront gun violence.
Three months after President Obama vowed to get tough on climate change, the Environmental Protection Agency on Friday begins that mission by announcing long-awaited rules for new power plants that, while slightly watered down, will be tough on the beleaguered coal industry.
Sen. John Barrasso, Wyoming Republican; Sen. Joe Manchin III, West Virginia Democrat; and Sen. Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican, released a statement at the time saying the Interior Department “cannot discard the economic analysis because it does not like the results.”
Mr. Manchin says next year — an election year — won't be any easier.
