    Three leading House Energy and Commerce Committee Democrats are calling for an oversight hearing on the Federal Communications Commission's Lifeline program, a phone subsidy for the poor that has been disparagingly referred to as the "Obama phone" program. The program, which began long before President Obama took office, has been notorious for waste and abuse. The FCC enacted reforms last year aimed at trimming billions of dollars from the program, but recent reports indicate that people who are ineligible for the program are still receiving subsidies. The program gained more attention last year when conservatives seized on a viral video...

    Democrats in House of Reps. joined J Street in supporting Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions Seventy-four Democrats in the House of Representatives have joined the dovish J Street organization in supporting the Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions to the Palestinian Authority. “In our view, support for a two-state resolution is inseparable from such support for Israel, its special relationship with the United States, and its very survival as a democratic homeland for the Jewish people,” the letter said. Seven Jewish members signed the letter, including Reps. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), John...

    Congressional support for controversial online piracy legislation eroded dramatically on Wednesday in the face of an unprecedented online protest supported by tech titans such as Google, Wikipedia and Facebook. Several key senators withdrew their support from the Senate's Protect IP Act (PIPA), including Tea Party favorite Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), an elected member of his party's leadership. Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), who leads the Senate GOP's campaign team, said the legislation should be put on hold, while Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), a sponsor and the ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, retreated from the...
  • Senator Gillibrand Thinks PROTECT IP Is About The Internet Kill Switch

    Last week, we wrote about how Rep. Anna Eshoo (whose district covers much of Silicon Valley) is apparently so incredibly out of touch on what PROTECT IP is about (despite it having a huge impact on the economy of her district) that she thought it was really about immigration. We were willing to chalk it up to a busy staffer sending out the wrong form letter, but there's growing evidence that our elected officials simply don't know what PROTECT IP is about at all. David Segal from Demand Progress was kind enough to pass on that they've been watching the...

    Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-CA) claims secret activities occurred under the watch of former Vice President Dick Cheney. Rep. Eshoo says she can't think of a better way to spend the money of taxpayers than to investigate if Cheney ran a secret assassination ring. "This must be investigated," Eshoo said.

  • Pelosi Labeled Pragmatic, Inclusive (AP Alert)

    Filed at 5:46 p.m. ET WASHINGTON (AP) -- Rep. Nancy Pelosi will try to unify fellow House Democrats with an inclusive style and a willingness to confront Republicans on the issues, her supporters say. Opponents say the party needs a new and more moderate generation of leadership. Pelosi, 62, from San Francisco, is on the brink of becoming the first woman to serve as a leader of either party in the House or Senate, provided she prevails over a late and decidedly long-shot challenge from Rep. Harold Ford of Tennessee. She is trying to move up from Democratic whip, the...
