The Obama administration's all-out public relations push to sell its health care reform law increasingly is targeting individual governors, who will bear much of the blame, the White House says, if millions of poor Americans remain uninsured.
The lousy sign-up website cost a bundle, a fact that will not disappear no matter how much the White House pivots from one issue to the next to deflect public interest away from Obamacare.
With America's mainstream media taking the week off for the Thanksgiving holiday, the nation's lonely and underworked pollsters stepped up to feed the beast. Not surprisingly, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was a big winner, even if the 2016 election is three years away.
"Smaller, simpler, smarter. Believe in America." That was the official motto of "Office of the President-Elect," a website launched by Mitt Romney's campaign in late October 2012. It was publicly visible for a time, but quickly deactivated after Mr. Romney lost the election. Now the public appears to have had a Romney renaissance of sorts.
So much for President Obama's convoluted announcement that offered home remedies for the big ills of health care reform, plus a one year sign-up reprieve for those who have lost their insurance. For a president who enjoys golf, the big news teed up Republican outrage to perfection. Oh, the irony.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stiff-armed questions about a possible 2016 presidential run while sidestepping several hot-button issues and declining to wade into what he called "the Washington, D.C., game" days after his landslide re-election in the Garden State.
For decades, liberals have dreamed of a "universal health care" system in America. On Wednesday night in Dallas, President Obama used that rare phrase and told a group volunteers that, under his leadership, it has become a reality.
A federal judge son Monday struck down a new Texas law that would have required abortion providers to have hospital-admitting privileges, but declined to block a new rule on abortion-inducing drugs.
Gentlemen, start your engines and let the FOIAs begin. Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus already has filed a Freedom of Information Act request to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services asking for information on the number of Americans who have enrolled in Obamacare. Now comes another request, with an interesting demand.
In another early sign that the 2016 Republican presidential nomination field may be crowded with big-name contenders, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is in Israel — again.
Immigrant-rights activists say New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie reversed himself Saturday and endorsed giving illegal immigrants in-state college tuition rates, and said he will try to get the issue through his legislature in a lame-duck session.
If New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has any chance of securing the Republican presidential nomination, he just might have to thank such darlings of the tea party movement as Rand Paul and Ted Cruz for an unlikely path to victory.
"The nation is looking for a change in leadership. Many Americans wake up every day wondering if we are descending rather than ascending as a nation. And most of our citizens want to rally behind hopeful alternatives to our current path," American Conservative Union Chairman Al Cardenas tells Inside the Beltway.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday accused Democrats in his state of punishing Republican opponents by misusing prosecution power and the courts because Democrats "can't get what they want at the polls."
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, on a planned mission to woo businesses away from Maryland, has also scheduled a last-minute meeting with the state’s Republican Party leaders.
Mr. Perry insisted that such an assurance is prohibited by his state constitution.
"It is unfortunate that Washington continues to play partisan games with Texans' tax dollars and the very future of our children," Mr. Perry said in a statement. "Texas will not surrender to Washington's one-size-fits-all, deficit-spending mindset or let Washington do to the Texas budget what they have done to the federal budget."
