Battleground Georgia: Newcomers Playing Key Role In Overall Race For Senate ControlOct 24, 2014sbfriedman02132
In a state that has been reliably red in the last decade's worth of elections, this mid term Georgia Senate race has some newcomers that can really shake things up, and give an all important tally win, either red or blue, in the battleground for overall Senate control. Historically, its true that the President's party doesn't do well in the mid-terms.
New Hampshire Should Disown Brown for Senate Before He Beats Them to ItOct 23, 2014jaredsxtn12292
How difficult is it to remember what state you work in and who your current employer is? My guess is that nearly everyone in this country knows the answer to these two simple questions, but you can add Scott Brown to the list of individuals who has difficulty answering them. Brown, who is currently running for Senate in New Hampshire, recently filed a document with the Federal Election Commission stating that his current occupation is that of a Massachusetts state senator.
Congressional Hopeful Humbly Omitted His Decorated PastOct 22, 2014Zach F232290
After Seth Moulton beat out sitting Representative John Tierney in the primary for the Democratic spot on Massachusetts’ ballot for the 6th District House Seat last month, reporters started to dig into to the past of this relatively unknown candidate and ended up with a refreshing surprise. Moulton, who achieved the rank of Second Lieutenant during the Iraq War, was awarded the Bronze Star medal for valor and the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation medal for valor for his service in 2003 and 2004.
Scott Walker Will Lose This Election If This One Simple Thing HappensOct 21, 2014sbfriedman22374
What will it take to oust Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker in the upcoming mid-term election? In short, female voter turnout. Because, you see, there's a gender divide on the two running candidates when it comes to the polling, and its significant.

Senator Udall Has Earned Six More Years; Here's How we Can Make That HappenOct 20, 2014jaredsxtn33363
Colorado has a choice to make in 2014. Will they go with a reliably liberal Democrat who has been instrumental in fighting for marriage equality, women's rights, clean energy, and a fair tax code? How about a Senator who helped make sure that all Coloradans were able to access affordable health care, regardless of preexisting condition or other factors? And you can't forget that he helped lead the drive to repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' back in 2010.
And In This Corner, Gov Rick Scott: The Master of Doublespeak And NonsenseOct 17, 2014sbfriedman23775
"Governor Scott... I'm not sure I got an answer to the question.." That was a remark from one of the moderators at the gubernatorial debate between incumbent Florida Governor Rick Scott and his Democratic opponent, Charlie Crist. Rick Scott was asked a very straight forward question on discrimination with gay marriage: "Governor Scott, you say you are against discrimination. But the courts have said that Florida's ban on same sex marriage is unconstitutional because it is discriminatory.
Push Through the Political Headwinds and Reelect Senator LandrieuOct 16, 2014jaredsxtn03319
Of all the Senate Democrats up for reelection in 2014, Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu may have one of the toughest hurdles to overcome if she is going to claim victor this November. The three term Senator represents a state that is tilting heavier to the right than ever before, having overwhelmingly voted for Mitt Romney in 2012 and electing big Republican majorities in both the state house and senate.
A Social Compact For 21st Century AmericaOct 14, 2014jaredsxtn03242
Of all the pieces of legislation that came about to help dig America out of the Great Depression, none had a greater impact than the Social Security Act. This single piece of legislation and subsequent amendments expanding the eligible number of recipients dramatically rewrote the social compact between the federal government and the citizens it governs.

04/16/14The Census is Being Manipulated to Skew Obamacare Numbers Obamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
President Obama's critics are claiming that the Census Bureau has changed its annual survey's questions to determine the amount of individuals who have health care coverage so the Obama Administration will be able to report that more American's have health coverage than actually do.

2013Small Businesses Dropping Majority of Employees Due to ACAObamacare (Affordable Care Act)0

2013 NOVMedicaid Expansion Will Bankrupt StatesMedicaid & Obamacare (Affordable Care Act)0
Many Republican states have claimed they rejected Medicaid expansion because it would have bankrupted their state.
