California’s Obamacare Exchange is Running out of Money
It looks like we can add California to the list of states that set up Obamacare exchanges and now are having huge problems with them (alongside places like Oregon and Maryland). Covered California, the Golden State’s exchange was in theory supposed to become self-sustaining this year, but as anyone who has followed the Obamacare rollout knows, it’s not even close to meeting this goal.

Democrats, the Party of Jim Crow, Want Their “House Rubio” to Fetch Them Water
The Democratic Party has decided it is okay to let out their inner racist against and . The New Yorker referred to as “uppity” and MSNBC referred to Rubio as “boy.” Now the DNC has prepared a set of graphics about Rubio and Cruz. For Rubio, the Party of Jim Crow wants their “House Rubio” to fetch them bottled water. Classy.
Harry Reid Unapologetic over Lying about Romney, Because Obama Won
The activist Left has given us ample evidence over the last several months that the narrative is more important than the truth, and all but confirms this in his latest interview. Reid, if you will remember, said the following from the Senate floor prior to the 2012 Presidential election: “So the word’s out that he hasn’t paid any taxes for ten years,” Reid said. “Let | Read More »

Harry Reid won’t seek re-election
This is probably wise on the part of the apparently recently-turned-blues-musician. WASHINGTON — Senator Harry Reid, the tough tactician who has led Senate Democrats since 2005, will not seek re-election next year, bringing an end to a three-decade congressional career that culminated with his push of President Obama’s ambitious agenda against fierce Republican resistance. Mr. Reid, 75, who suffered serious eye and facial injuries in a Jan. | Read More »
The Hill: Yeah, the Democrats Empowering Boehner Now
After caving to the Obama administration as well as the Democrats in Congress and the media by bringing a “clean” DHS funding bill up for a vote, we here at RedState admitted the fact that Speaker now essentially owes his job to the Democrats. Now, the Democrats themselves are willing to go on record as wanting to empower Boehner, because they know he’ll be willing | Read More »
Reminder: Democrats still lust after taking away people’s ammunition.

Sen. Klobuchar (D-MN) Admits Her Staff To Blame for Scuttling of Trafficking Bill
Last Friday, I wrote about how the Democrats were putting abortion before helping victims of human trafficking. The Democrats incredible defense was that they had not read the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act to find the language inserted by the GOP relating to abortion. Now, , a Democrat from Minnesota and the bill’s leading Democratic sponsor, admits that it was her staff, not the | Read More »
Ten Dollars in Cuts for One Dollar in Tax Increases
During the 2012 debates, Republicans were asked a simple question: would they accept a dollar in tax increases for ten dollars in spending cuts? A friend asked them that question. It was not meant as a bullcrap question, but it is. The reason is because it generates a sound bite that advances a narrative that leaves out a whole lot of history. As could easily | Read More »
A 2016 Advantage?
Yesterday, something phenomenal happened. While I dare not call DOOM (1. that’s Moe Lane’s job and 2. I think it would be a bit premature), I do believe Hillary irreparably hurt herself in the race for the White House in 2016. My colleague Leon Wolf updated the Republican Power Rankings yesterday, so you can see where the GOP is in terms of having a series | Read More »
Human Trafficking vs. Taxpayer-Funded Abortion
The Democrats are really working hard to remain genuinely awful, and a bill that fights human trafficking is their latest attempt to do so. Senate Democrats are threatening to pull their support from a bipartisan anti-trafficking bill set for Senate action this week. They are infuriated over an abortion-related provision that Democrats say was slipped in without their knowledge. The legislation passed the Senate Judiciary | Read More »
