It is dawning on the GOP that snatching health insurance away from millions of helpless victims is not quite as rewarding as expected.
Last summer, two Republican-appointed federal judges ruled, against the furious dissent of the Democratic appointee, in favor of what had theretofore been viewed as an outlandish lawsuit designed to blow up Obamacare. The unexpected progress of the lawsuit, hatched by anti-Obamacare activists at a right-wing think tank, filled conservatives with sudden Schadenfreude. They...Read more
Fox News is hurting the Republican Party, according to a study conducted by a top official in the first Bush administration.
The study, authored by Bruce Bartlett, who worked in the Treasury Department under George H. W.

President Barack Obama's job approval rating is positive for the first time in two years, according to a WSJ/NBC poll released Monday.
The survey finds that 48 percent of Americans say the president is doing a good job, while 47 percent disapprove of his performance.
The Wall Street Journal warns that "Obama shouldn't celebrate too much," considering a one-point net positive score is within the margin of error. Still, it marks the highest approval that WSJ/NBC has...Read more
The glass ceiling in Silicon Valley is pretty hard to crack for Asian-Americans, a new study shows, with Asians only representing 13.9 percent of executives at five Silicon Valley-headquartered companies.
