It's been an interesting week in Washington.  Democrats went along with extending the same tax cuts that they have spent the better part of the last decade criticizing, and Harry Reid had to give up his attempt to push through an omnibus spending bill that would keep the government on an Obama spending track for the next year.

So what gives?

As for the tax bill, it passed because Republicans went along with extending unemployment benefits for another thirteen months.  As almost always seems to be the case, the benefits were set to expire around Christmas, as the newly empowered...

Several new pieces of legislation are being introduced that aim to end any taxpayer funding of abortion and/or groups such as Planned Parenthood.

The "No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act" is being introducted by Republican Rep. Chris Smith (NJ) and Democrat Rep. Dan Lipinski (IL), which would institute a government wide ban on any federal funding for abortion, as well as provide conscience protections for health care providers.  (By the way, Lipinski was one of the rare Democrat incumbents that was re-elected in November, largely because he remained pro-life and voted against ObamaCare).

Indiana Republican Rep. Mike Pence will be introducing a bill that would...

For the first time ever, a Rasmussen public opinion poll shows more Americans self-identifying themselves as Republicans as opposed to Democrats or independents.

The survey shows 36% of adults identifying themselves as Republicans, with 35% calling themselves Democrats, and 29% independents.  What makes this numbers even more interesting is that the poll applies to "all Americans", not just "registered voters", or "likely voters", (which are almost always more Republican in their responses that the general public).

After the 2008 presidential...

Over eight months after the passage of ObamaCare by a super-slim majority, party line vote, 57% of Americans still favor the outright repeal of the law, according to the latest survey from Rasmussen.  Further, about half of the public believes that the law will eventually force them to change their own insurance plan or cause them to lose it, which is of course what Obama (...

A no-brainer for bipartisanship

By Michele Combs and Timothy Karr

As he prepares to take on the role of House Speaker, Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) has pledged to bring a new era of bipartisanship to Congress. "I think the best leaders are very good listeners," said Boehner in October. "Because if you are not listening, you cannot lead."

President Obama responded in kind: "Let's go ahead and start making some progress on the things that we do agree on," he said, "And we can continue to have a strong and healthy debate about those areas where we don't...

Congressional Republicans wasted no time putting Marco Rubio front and center, giving him the honor of giving the first post-election response to President Obama's weekly address this past Saturday.

The video clearly shows why so many liberals were worried about Rubio winning the Florida Senate race and being given a place in the national spotlight.  He's effective.  Very effective.  In fact, he's immediately one of the most effective conservative communicators on the national stage.
