The White House is eyeing further changes to the controversial provision in the hopes of reaching something of a compromise with nonprofit charities and universities.
Opponents of President Obama's health care law notched their biggest legal win to date Tuesday, when the second-most-powerful court in the country said the administration had unlawfully extended Obamacare subsidies to millions of Americans.
House Republicans may be suing President Obama for executive overreach, but for one day at least, members of the GOP joined the president at the White House Tuesday as the administration announced a sweeping overhaul of the federal government's job-training programs.
Press and public are aware that President Obama will appear at five Democratic fundraisers by the time Thursday rolls around, despite alarming events here and abroad. Initially, the White House reasoned that in times of unrest, business as usual rather than crisis management was the tactic of choice on the world stage. But that's not quite good enough now.
The crossings by family units have increased almost five times faster. This contradicts White House and media efforts to elicit public sympathy by focusing public attention on children.
House Republicans will call Wednesday for decisive action to end the border crisis, proposing a deployment of National Guard troops and accelerated deportation hearings for unaccompanied children inundating the U.S., said a Capitol Hill aide familiar with the plan.
The Obamas are reportedly poised to purchase a custom-built high-class home in the Rancho Mirage section of California for $4.25 million.

Facing emergencies from Ukraine to the Mexican border, President Obama left Washington on Tuesday for a three-day Democratic fundraising trip amid signs that his image-makers are worried about criticism that the president's excursion is an "unsavory distraction."
A journalists' group lodged a complaint Tuesday against the Obama White House, which bills itself as the most transparent in history, for shutting out some members of the press from a meeting between President Obama and the surviving Apollo 11 astronauts.
House Speaker John Boehner warned Tuesday that efforts to fix the border crisis are in jeopardy, blaming President Obama for bowing to the whims of fellow Democrats and failing to seek a bipartisan solution.
Amid increasing violence in the Middle East and questions still swirling around the aircraft shot down over Ukraine last week, the White House is not considering canceling President Obama's upcoming trip to the West Coast for Democratic party fundraisers.
News flash. Today, the White House spokesperson stated that "President Obama is the tallest president in history," adding that he is taller than the current Speaker of the House, Vladimir Putin and Rush Limbaugh. As reporters looked around the room, he threw in a live one. President Obama is also "the most transparent president in history," should anyone be wondering.
President Obama on Monday took executive action to bar discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender federal employees and contractors, but the move already has come under fire by some groups that say it doesn't go far enough and leaves loopholes for religious employers.
With Attorney General Eric Holder at the legal helm, and a pro-amnesty chief executive in the White House, it's hard to know how this whole border fiasco is going to end -- and specifically, whether peace will prevail. Mr. Holder's already defined the issue of immigration in terms of civil rights -- and tame-sounding term to the contrary, civil rights movements generally come with an offshoot attachment of chaotic and even violent resistance.
