SORT BY Relevancy
The elections yesterday have left everyone buzzing. Tonight our Capitol Hill Insider Elizabeth Letchworth gives us her take on the runoff election in Mississippi, New York Democratic Rep. Charlie Rangel's win, and other state results.
35,000 Dems Carried Thad to Victory?
Black vote used...
Flier 'that got Cochran elected'...
The latest on the border crisis and whether Congress will get a bill thru before their upcoming month long August recess.
The Court said the four words in the law that mean what they say are: "established by the state":
If you bought insurance from an exchange NOT established by the state, then you aren't entitled to a federal subsidy.
36 states refused to set up state exchanges. However the IRS made a ruling that every exchange can offer a subsidy...Not just those "established by the state"
4.6 M Americans receive subsidies. Two of largest states That dole out OBamaCare subsidies are FL and TX. The Average subsidy is $269 per month going to OBamaCare recipients who signed up for insurance to help pay their premium. The obvious assumption is that Without the subsidy from the Feds people wouldn't have signed up. Health care would be too expensive, so they would have just paid the fine for not having insurance which is set at $95 first yr.
Elizabeth Letchworth has the details, the back story and her predictions.
Federally, among the illegal aliens coming into this country, is about 65,000 unaccompanied minors. Many believe the flood of incoming illegal immigrants is orchestrated, seeing it as child abuse by the federal government.
These illegals are being specifically shipped into conservative areas in California, Texas, Arizona, and Oklahoma, a strategy that some believe is designed to change the complexion of the electorate, as well as influencing the ratio between republicans and democrats in the House of Representatives.
Tonight, Elizabeth Letchworth, our Capitol Hill insider, gives us her take on what Congress can and must do about this -- if they can do anything about it at all.
Did yesterday's primary race results in Michigan and Kansas send mixed messages? Is the Tea Party still viable?
A WSJ/NBC poll shows that seven in 10 adults blamed their dissatisfaction more on Washington leaders than on any deeper economic trends, and 79% expressed some level of dissatisfaction with the American political system.
What impact will this have in November? Some political commentators are saying "not much". First, because Americans voting behavior doesn't reflect their anger. It is far easier to indict an abstraction, i.e. Congress than it is their own representative, who many feel IS doing the job they were sent to Washington to do.
And secondly, unless you are someone with keen political interest and involvement in your local/national races, you simply don't bother to vote. Mid term turnout is expected to be low in November -- past averages have been only 40%.
Tonight we take a look at all of this with our Capitol Hill expert, the Hon. Elizabeth Letchworth.
What's Congress up to?
Headlines say the Rpublicans are working on getting amnesty passed for children of illegals. Really?

Congress was off this week - a "spring break" for the creatures that inhabit Capitol Hill.
Codels? (Congressional delegations) are underway. Sen. John McCain is leading several other senators on a Codel to Ukraine.
Obama is said to be "poisonous", "toxic" to those Democrats trying to get reelected to the senate - 21 of them - and they're jittery. They can't run away from Obama, their party's standard-bearer, fast enough. Scott Brown has thrown his hat in the ring to take on Sen. Jeanne Shaheen of NH. Shows you how precarious the Democrats are.
