  • Senate Democrats who will lose re-election and why: Part Two

    This analysis of Democrat Senate seats being lost to Republicans, is built on the assumption that voters will see every Republican candidate as Donald Trump; and the election is the referendum on Trump’s record as he has framed it. Bob Casey junior will lose his seat. Democrat Bob Casey junior of Pennsylvania is not particularly popular in the Keystone State. In the leftist Morning Consult survey of 1st quarter 2017 compared to the 4th quarter of 2017 in-state support of all Senators, Bob Casey dropped 9 points in approval. Bob Casey junior was elected in 2012 with 53% support based...
  • Investigate the Senate Democrats’ Planned Hit on Kavanaugh

    How did we get here? The Kavanaugh Supreme Court nomination circus didn’t happen by accident. The emergence of incredible — and by “incredible,” I mean the literal Merriam-Webster definition of “too extraordinary and improbable to be believed” — accusers in the eleventh hour was no mistake. It is my contention that this grand unearth-and-destroy spectacle was planned, coordinated, and facilitated by Senate Judiciary Committee Democrats and their staffers. After the FBI finishes its Freshmen Booze Investigations, Federal Barfight Interrogations, and Fraternity Barfing Incidents probe of every last Yale and Holton-Arms acquaintance and publicity hound ever photographed with Judge Brett Kavanaugh,...
  • Republicans Should Not Have Delayed the Kavanaugh Vote

    They gave Democrats exactly what they wanted. You have opponents whose first and only objective is delay. From the start of the confirmation proceedings on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, those opponents, Senate Democrats, have thus pushed for delay. At every turn. Of course they never come out and say that’s what they’re doing — they never come out and say, “We’ve abused the confirmation process and dropped a bomb at the eleventh hour, an uncorroborated, 36-year-old allegation of sexual assault, because we’re trying to delay the vote until after the midterms.” But delay is what they...

Isadore Hall (D-Compton) to the Agricultural Labor Relations Board on a party line vote.

    "Tax returns?” We ain't got no tax returns. We don't need no tax returns. We don't have to show you any stinking tax returns! “The top Senate Democrats on several committees will launch a push Thursday to require President-elect Trump’s Cabinet nominees to provide their tax returns to committees before their confirmation hearings. “Sens. Debbie Stabenow of Michigan, Patty Murray of Washington and Ron Wyden of Oregon will hold a press conference at noon to press for a Senate rules change requiring all Cabinet nominees to submit three years of their tax returns to the panel charged with reviewing their...

    Senate Democrats have opened a rare public feud with President Barack Obama over a congressional effort to discourage America's trading partners from targeting Israel with politically motivated boycotts and sanctions. Minority Leader Harry Reid and other Democrats voiced their objections to Obama's decision not to implement provisions in a trade law that instructs U.S. negotiators to protect Israel from being punished economically for its treatment of Palestinians. [...] Obama is opposed to the boycott movement and has pledged to fight it "as long as I am president." But his administration took issue with part of the bill that it said...

    American Thinker ^ | November 19, 2014 | Bruce Walker
    Recently I wrote about the prospects of Democrats facing a long minority in the House of Representatives. The same is true of the Senate. Democrats have tried to put a brave face on the 2014 results, noting that in 2016 the Senate map will favor their party, when the Senate Class of 2010 – the Republican landslide midterm – face voters. A review of those races, however, suggests that some states may in a good year be able to gain three seats – Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – but the other imagined “tough race” for Republicans would require a Democrat...

    Associated Press ^ | Sep 8, 2014 6:52 PM EDT | Alan Fram
    Senate Democrats started their campaign-season drive Monday for a constitutional amendment aimed at curbing special interests’ financial clout in elections, a doomed effort the party hopes will help them make a populist appeal to voters. The measure would allow Congress and the states to limit the money raised and spent in election campaigns by outside groups, candidates and others, curbs that the Supreme Court has weakened in recent years. It has no chance of winning the two-thirds majority needed to clear the Senate, let alone even being considered by the Republican-run House. Democrats brought the measure to the Senate floor...

    When the Obama administration declared Healthcare.gov "fixed" earlier this month, the announcement spawned a flurry of media reports about Congressional Democrats' fears being allayed by the news. As an aside, the website's technical troubles are hardly a thing of the past, for reasons we'll discuss below -- but the front end experience has been substantially improved. Ron Fournier wondered just how long jittery Democrats would be appeased. The detente appears to have lasted less than one week: Senate Democrats facing tough reelections say President Obama has not done enough to fix the botched rollout of his healthcare law and are...

    Within months of Democrats ramming through Obamacare without a single Republican vote, the American people responded, pummeling the president's party at the polls. Republicans gained 63 seats in the House, six United States Senators, six governorships, and nearly 700 seats in state legislatures nationwide. Conservatives had their temporary political revenge, we were told, but Democrats would get the last laugh because Obamacare was sure to become more popular once Republicans' scurrilous smears against the law were shown to be false. How's that working out? Democratic senators, at a caucus meeting with White House officials, expressed concerns on Thursday about how...

    Political and policy fiasco alert: The GOP Chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee is gearing up to waste the House Republican Majority's energy, time and political goodwill on a doomed-to-fail scheme that conservative realists know cannot emerge from Congress. The price of pursuing this strategy will be the loss of many good and necessary initiatives that could get done, initiatives that could unify and energize the voting public behind an expanded GOP House majority in 2014 and gains in the Senate as well. The consequence of this strategic blunder could be the loss of the House majority. Everybody...

    The Republican-held House of Representatives has passed Paul Ryan's FY 2014 budget, as well as the final version of a "continuing resolution" that will fund the federal government through the end of the current fiscal year.  The latter item locked into place the reduced spending baseline established by the sequester.  It does not defund Obamacare, although the GOP FY 2014 budget does.  As I wrote earlier, the House rejected a trio of Democratic alternative budgets yesterday, including the Senate Democrats' offering -- which raises taxes by $1.5 trillion, increases overall spending, adds $7 trillion in new deficits and never balances....

    Yesterday, Paul Ryan, Republican Chairman of the House Budget Committee, unveiled his plan that would balance the federal budget within one decade. Considering that the nation’s debt (not including the huge future cost of major entitlement programs) is now approaching $17 trillion, one might think political leaders in Washington, D.C. would consider such a proposal. On the Democratic side of the aisle, however, there is no interest whatsoever in taking such a constructive approach. Democrats in both houses of the Congress and the Obama Administration, along with many media-based pundits, began to loudly criticize the Ryan proposal even before it...

    Raise your hand if you're surprised by any of this:   Senate Democrats are drafting a federal budget blueprint that would raise nearly $1 trillion in new taxes over the next decade and slice roughly $1 trillion more from projected spending, according to Democratic aides familiar with the document. But the framework would never bring the budget into balance, potentially putting Democrats on the defensive as Washington enters a new phase in the ongoing battle over the swollen national debt. This week, both parties are scheduled to unveil competing visions for the 10-year period that begins Oct. 1. House Republicans...

    The last time Democrats in the United States Senate adhered to the law and put forward an annual budget was back in calendar year 2009, just after the last presidential election.  Now that another major national electoral contest is in the rearview mirror, it appears that Harry Reid's motley crew is preparing to make good on their magnanimous pledge to actually do their jobs this year.  Via a senior Republican source at the Senate Budget Committee:   We expect to mark up a Senate Democrat budget next week. We don’t have a date, we don’t know details such as whether...

    We've known this failure was forthcoming for some time, but it's still worth flagging for several reasons, which we'll get to momentarily.  First, the basics:   Monday marked the deadline set in law for President Obama to submit a budget, but he missed it — making this the fourth time in his five years in office that he's failed to submit the blueprint on time. That makes his record equal to the three previous presidents combined, who spanned 20 years in office. This year, Mr. Obama blamed the late passage of his tax increase deal early last month. "Because these issues were not...

    Last week, Republicans proved they are not a governing party. Next week we will see whether Democrats are. A governing party would have, reluctantly, passed Speaker John Boehner's Plan B, which would have preserved the current tax rates on everyone with incomes under $1 million. Passage would have put Senate Democrats on the spot, since they voted for a similar measure in 2010. They might have engaged in negotiations with Boehner that could have been more productive than his negotiations with Barack Obama this month and in the summer of 2011. Then, as Bob Woodward reports in his book "The...

    What a pity.  If only someone had demonstrated the foresight to warn against the destructive consequences of Obamacare's medical device tax, they might have helped turn public sentiment sharply against the law prior to passage.  Oh, that's right, conservatives did -- and the American people rose up in opposition.  Now, the very actors who are most responsible for ignoring public demands and jamming through Obamacare are trying to "delay" or repeal a major element of their law, warning that it could stifle medical innovation and kill jobs.  Welcome to the party, guys.  You're about two years too late:   U.S....
