Senator Kay Hagan (D., N.C.) has released a new radio ad (see below) accusing her potential GOP challenger, Thom Tillis, of hypocrisy. The ad is ridiculously dishonest.
According to the ad, Tillis has attacked Hagan for calling the unpopular healthcare law, once known as Obamacare, “a great idea.” Hypocrisy!
The Democratic Party’s obsession with income inequality and “the one percent” is misguided, science has found.
Over the weekend, leading academic professor Mark R. Rank discussed the findings of a recent scientific study on income inequality in the New York Times. It turns out that, according to scientific data, the Left’s horror stories about a rigid class structure in the United States fueled by nefarious, wealth-hoarding one-percenters is false.
This is awkward. Alison Lundergan Grimes’s campaign sent out a fundraising email on Monday suggesting that given the “gaffes” of her GOP opponent, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, it’s no surprise that she is leading a recent poll (conducted by a Democratic firm). Unfortunately, her campaign gaffed:
The Associated Press reports that the Democratic Party’s Big Money juggernaut grows stronger by the day. According to early filings, Democrats “seem to have a roughly 3-to-1 advantage over Republicans in cash raised and banked through independent groups.”
Senate Majority PAC, a Democratic group run by former aides to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) has been particularly adept at convincing The One Percent to buy our democracy with large sums of sweet cash:
Gallup has a poll out today ahead of the April 15 tax-filing deadline showing that, when it comes to paying taxes, independent voters are far more likely to agree with Republicans than they are with Democrats:
Democrats have begun their annual push for “paycheck fairness” legislation, which is less about achieving an actual policy result than it is about teeing up an issue for Democrats to run on in the midterms.
However, if passed, this legislation would be a financial boon to some of the Democratic Party’s largest and most loyal donors—trial lawyers—by making it easier for employers to sue their employers for discrimination, facilitating the filing of large class-action lawsuits, and making it harder for employers to defend themselves in court.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) reacted swiftly to revelations that his campaign had purchased $16,786 worth of “holiday gifts” (for donors) from his own granddaughter, announcing that he would personally reimburse his campaign for the cost of the trinkets. Reid also angrily rebuffed a reporter’s question about the questionable campaign activity, chiding him for describing the amount as $17,000. “Sixteen [thousand dollars], but whatever,” Reid snarked.
