    The Chamber of Commerce and 635 big businesses, including Facebook, sent a letter on Tuesday to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) urging "legislative action to seize this opportunity to fix our dysfunctional immigration system by enacting meaningful immigration reforms this year." Saying they are encouraged by the House GOP leadership's "immigration principles" that they consider "guideposts," the business organizations wrote that they are "united in the belief that we can and must do better for our economy and country by modernizing our immigration system." They also pressed for amnesty by writing about the need to respect "family unity.""Done properly, reform...

    House Republicans are moving quickly on a new bill to strengthen ObamaCare's temporary insurance plan for people with pre-existing conditions.... The Obama administration announced earlier this year that it would suspend enrollment in the PCIP, citing cost concerns. GOP lawmakers have since mounted a push to transfer money from the law's public and preventive health fund — disparaged as a "slush" fund by Republicans — to reopen the PCIP's enrollment.

    Conservative talk host Laura Ingraham expects to be back on the air “in the next several days.” When she does return, the program may be unfamiliar to some listeners. She’s not offering many specifics, but in an interview with a Houston station, Ingraham hints it will be more of an entertainment-based show than what’s she’s done for the past 11 years. “It’s time for a new show and it’s time for a new focus that really embraces the culture and expands the conservative reach,” Ingraham told KSEV host Edd Hendee during an appearance yesterday on his morning show. Ingraham thinks...

    London's socialist mayor signed an agreement Tuesday with Venezuela's state-owned oil company to provide discounted oil for the city's iconic red buses, praising the idea as the brainstorm of the country's leftist leader, Hugo Chavez. Ken Livingstone — a committed socialist known locally as "Red Ken" — met with Chavez last year at City Hall to discuss the deal to provide cheap oil to London in exchange for advice on urban planning in Caracas, the Venezuelan capital. Venezuela has signed similar agreements with cities in several other countries, including the United States. Critics call it "oil diplomacy" — and say...

    Last month, as chilly November winds hinted at the winter to come, Massachusetts received a warm gift from Venezuela via CITGO Petroleum Corporation. It could not have come at a more critical moment as those on fuel assistance faced heating price increases of up to 50 percent. Many low-income families looked ahead to a winter of unbearable options: choosing between heat and food or medication. As a result of the Venezuelan oil program, more than 12 million gallons of heavily discounted heating oil will flow to needy households and social service institutions across the state. Together with local nonprofits Citizens...
