Budget Vote Proves House GOP Can't Do Anything Big in 2014

April 17, 2014 Last week's budget vote demonstrated why House Republicans are unlikely to accomplish anything significant on the legislative front in 2014. The House GOP this election year is suffering from something of a Goldilocks complex, in which some members dismiss any given proposal as too hot, and others complain it's too...

House Conservatives Plot to Oust Boehner, Put Scare Into Cantor

April 11, 2014 Several dozen frustrated House conservatives are scheming to infiltrate the GOP leadership next year—possibly by forcing Speaker John Boehner to step aside immediately after November's midterm elections.

Will Rank-and-File Lawmakers Accept the Budget Deal?

December 11, 2013 After weeks of closed-door talks, House and Senate negotiators finally unveiled a two-year budget deal Tuesday that attempts to calm the long-fought feud over spending on Capitol Hill.

Everyone Hates the Emerging Budget Deal

December 6, 2013 The details of a potential budget deal are trickling out, and nobody seems thrilled with what they're hearing. Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen.

House GOP Poised to Push Straight Funding Bill to Avoid Shutdown

December 5, 2013 It's crunch time for congressional budget negotiators and House Republicans, desperate to avoid another government shutdown, aren't taking any chances. If Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen.
