House Democrats

Feb 28, 2013 — The measure's reauthorization showed us again that as much as the two sides of the aisle in the House often can't seem to stand each other, they remain lashed together when it comes to issues that divide Republicans but unite Democrats.

Nov 29, 2011 — So while Pelosi and the head of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Rep. Steve Israel of New York, are duty-bound to keep talking up the possibilities of their party regaining control (it's difficult to recruit candidates and attract campaign contributions otherwise) everyone else is free to state the obvious — it's likely not going to happen.
Comments |
Jul 14, 2011 — If a deal to boost the U.S. debt ceiling is reached between President Obama and congressional GOP leaders, more than likely it will require as many House Democrats' votes as possible to pass since any pact Obama would agree to is probably incapable of drawing much if any support from the House's Tea Party Republicans.So even they're in the minority, what the House's progressives think matters.
Comments |
Apr 1, 2011 — Some critics of Congress might say that every day is April Fools Day in Washington. House Republicans and Democrats seemed intent on proving that Friday during a debate over a GOP bill that a top Republican suggested, wrongly, could become law with only the House passing it.
Comments |
Jan 21, 2011 — Biden, a survivor of brain aneurysms and neurosurgery, spoke encouragingly of Giffords' prospects for recovery. He also told House Democrats he welcomed the effort to tone down political rhetoric. And he thanked the lawmakers for taking tough votes.
Comments |
Jan 5, 2011 — As they watched the GOP take control of the House, Democrats prepared to defend Obama going forward. One of Obama's chief House Democratic defenders will be Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland who said his role is to ensure "true oversight" happens.
Comments |
Jan 4, 2011 — The Constitution reading is a shout out to Tea Party voters from which some Democrats felt excluded. But Republicans are inviting Democrats to join them after members of the new minority party requested as much, not wanting to be out-Constitutioned.
Comments |
Dec 16, 2010 — Some Democrats were unhappy about being made to vote for the Senate bill with its estate-tax piece. They preferred to vote on a liberal version of the estate tax that would be less generous to the rich.
Comments |
Dec 14, 2010 — The leader of the House Democrats' revolt against the tax-cut pact said the fight is over. Though liberals know they can'y stop the deal, they at least hope to be allwoed to vote for the package in pieces to record where they disagree.
Comments |
Dec 9, 2010 — House Democrats want a higher estate-tax and want the payroll tax holiday to be offset with money from elsewhere. They also want no extension for the top two income brackets.
