Latest Rob Portman Items
He's the only member who voted against last week's debt deal, and also the only one who wrote his own individual budget this year - both of which make Sen. Patrick J. Toomey the wild-card selection to the 12-member deficit supercommittee charged with finding $1.5 trillion in deficit cuts by Thanksgiving.
The 12-member supercommittee tasked with straightening out the country's fiscal mess is long on lawmakers who have already whiffed in recent months on chances to strike deals and short on those who have shown a readiness to make the compromises that all sides say will be needed.
The Obama administration is under growing pressure from both parties on Capitol Hill to wrap up work on a package of long-delayed, Bush-era trade pacts, with lawmakers saying the United States continues to lose market share to China, Canada and others without the deals.
President Obama says the economic recovery will stall if Congress can't agree on spending cuts and avoid a government shutdown.
He may have passed over Cleveland as the site of next year's Democratic National Convention, but President Obama continues to pay extraordinary attention to Ohio, on Tuesday making his 13th trip to a key state in recent presidential elections.
The Senate yesterday shot down an attempt to ban congressional earmarks by a 56-39 vote. At first this would appear to be a significant setback to the fiscal-responsibility movement building over the past year through Tea Party activism. A closer look offers hope that the message sent by voters in the midterm congressional elections may actually be sinking in. The prospects for a bit of change - real change, this time - are looking better than ever.
A few poll-watching pundits have claimed recently that Americans are turning their backs on free trade. You sure wouldn't know it from this week's election results. The next Congress, when it meets in January, almost certainly will be more supportive of economic engagement with the world than the outgoing Congress has been.
President Obama will announce on Monday a plan to spend at least $50 billion on long-term investments for the country's transportation infrastructure, another attempt to stimulate the lagging U.S. economy ahead of the November elections.
Frustrated, discouraged and just plain mad, a lot of people who have lost jobs — or know someone who has — now want to see the names of Democrats on pink slips. And that's jeopardizing the party's chances in Ohio and all across the country in November's elections.
