Conservatives in the News

Health Care Major US Election Issue

From Voice of America

President Barack Obama’s controversial health care law will be at the center of the political debate during this year’s U.S. congressional midterm election campaign.  

Despite early problems with implementation of the law, the White House recently announced more than seven million people have signed up for health insurance and that has some Democrats breathing a bit easier about their re-election hopes in November.

GOP’s small-state edge boosts its Senate hopes

From The Washington Post

WASHINGTON — Republican senators are entrenching themselves in small states that elected Democrats a few years ago, brightening the GOP’s future if Americans continue their trend of voting for the same party in Senate and presidential races.

The Senate’s makeup has always given disproportionate power to less populous states. As liberal voters keep migrating to urban areas, many rural states are becoming more consistently conservative, a potential problem for Democrats.

Ten years ago, for instance, all four senators from the Dakotas were Democrats. This year, Democrats are fighting an uphill battle to keep the number from falling to one.

Democrats, as Part of Midterm Strategy, to Schedule Votes on Pocketbook Issues

From The New York Times

WASHINGTON — The White House and congressional Democrats are preparing to step up attacks on Republicans over pocketbook issues like the minimum wage in the most aggressive and coordinated move yet to try to reverse the Republican momentum that threatens their control of the Senate in the final two years of the Obama presidency.

The effort is set to begin within the next two weeks in the Senate when Democrats will call a vote on their proposal to increase the minimum wage to $10.10, and it will continue through spring and summer with additional legislation to eliminate the pay gap between men and women, lower interest rates on college loans and close tax loopholes that benefit corporations with business overseas.
