    Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.) says that Congress will be prepared to successfully repeal and replace the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), also known as Obamacare, if a Republican president is elected in November. "If a Republican president is sworn into office in only 11 months, we are going to be ready," Upton said. "That is the challenge that Speaker [Paul] Ryan put before us." [...] In laying out the main elements of the Republican replacement proposal, the 15-term congressman also noted that it will remove several key features of the ACA. ...
  • Newt Gingrich vs. Mitt Romney: Will the Republican Please Stand Up?

    Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney make me think of Dorothy Jones. "Aunt" Dorothy, my mom's closest friend, was a warm, smart, comedienne-quick funny woman from a large family. Unlike my mom's other friends, Dorothy was single and remained so until she died. I once asked her, in the rude way only children can, why she never married. "You know," she said while pointing, one by one, at four imaginary men lined up in front her, "if you took the best qualities from all my sisters' husbands and rolled them up into one man -- you'd still come up short." This...
  • Bill Clinton: Weve Got to Deal with Medicare (Even Clinton recognizes Medicare is already bankrupt)

    Former President Bill Clinton, still widely considered one of his partys foremost politicians, said on Wednesday that Democrats should cut a reasonable deal with Republicans on Medicare savings rather than conclude from Tuesdays upset in a special Congressional election that bashing Republicans on the issue is the key to a party comeback in 2012. Mr. Clintons message, while more politically pointed, followed similar comments on Wednesday morning from Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner as both responded to a Democrats victory in a conservative district in upstate New York. The race turned on House Republicans budget plan to replace Medicare with...

    I want to call this a palate cleanser, but it’s so acidic — especially his memory of the sign in Newt’s office on the Hill — that it’s more likely to burn your tongue. Can’t use it as evidence of the upswell in conservative anger towards Newt after his MTP appearance either, I’m afraid: Coburn is a Gingrich critic of loooongstanding, which makes this less of a standard “what happened to Newt?” lament than a bitter “I told you so.” To follow up on an earlier analogy, it’s as if Coburn jumped into the ring, pushed Drago aside, and started...
  • Bill Bennett to Gingrich: Youre Shooting at [Paul Ryan] From Behind! (Testy Radio Interview)

    I would contend Newt Gingrich’s interview with Bill Bennett this morning did not go well for the candidate. I don’t think I’ve ever heard Bennett, one of the most patient and courteous hosts in talk radio, so exasperated with a guest: Bill Bennett: We had some tough comments about you, want to give you a chance to respond. Let me put it this way: Is there anything about this Meet the Press interview that you would like to either take back or clarify today?Newt Gingrich: Yeah, there’s a lot that I would like to clarify, but let me start by...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) on Monday sought to walk back his controversial remarks on healthcare after coming under friendly fire from the right. Gingrich, who's acknowledged that his discipline and judgment would be a key metric of success in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, had come under intense criticism from conservatives stunned by his comments on NBC's Meet the Press." I am completely opposed to the ObamaCare mandate on individuals," Gingrich said in a video posted to his website on Monday. I am for the repeal of ObamaCare and I am against any effort to impose...

    Washington Post “fact-checker” Glenn Kessler awards Rep. Paul Ryan two Pinocchios for statements like this: There’s a lot of misinformation about what we are proposing and what we are not proposing. We’re saying: Save Medicare by reforming it for people who are 54 and below by working like a system just like members of Congress and federal employees have. To claim that Ryan is misleading people about his plan, Kessler takes a page from the Politifact playbook, converting differences of opinion into factual disputes.What’s Kessler’s beef? Under a 1997 law, the government pays a set rate of 75 percent of...

    Dan Webster would be hard-pressed to make himself heard in a library. So the soft-spoken congressman didn't have a chance Tuesday when his town-hall meeting turned into a political food fight. It seems liberal activists learned a lesson from the tea party. They came; they shouted; they disrupted. It worked for the tea party in attacking Democrats over ObamaCare. And it is working for liberals in attacking Republicans over RyanCare. The Webster town hall was covered by National Public Radio and reported not only on our front page but also on the front page of The New York Times.We love...
