What’s happening with Obamacare repeal, you ask? That is a fantastic question. But at this point, it’s quite clear that Republicans who campaigned on repealing the ACA have zero intention of doing so now that the opportunity has presented itself.

Should be a bumper sticker for those who oppose immigration amnesty and voted last night to defeat Eric Cantor.

Alternative national headline: “I’m against lawlessness, and I vote”

That lawlessness is reflected at the border where tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors are crossing over in anticipation of amnesty, or at least being...

No, I didn’t see it coming.

We didn’t even plan on live coverage of VA-07, instead focusing on whether Lindsey Graham would avoid a runoff (he did).

Noticed the trend of legislators going beyond issuing press releases and fully embracing social media to distribute and market their point-of-view?

Rep. Darrell Issa has been especially active in marketing himself and his committee’s activities, including design-heavy graphics and an active twitter account.

Today Rep. Eric Cantor’s office launched a new website, Cosponsor.gov,...

The Politico has an article detailing the Obama administration’s targeting of Congressman Eric Cantor. According to the article, Obama’s political advisers are coordinating a campaign in the media and through unions “to introduce him to voters before he can introduce himself.”
