Steven Hall

Is it possible that these are just well meaning people who are reaching out to Americans with shared interests? It is possible. Is it likely? I don't think it's likely at all. . . . My assessment is that it's definitely part of something

Donald J. Trump

Maria Butina

No government official has EVER approached me about 'fostering ties' with any

Tim Farron

But I'm somebody who believes that Britain is better off in the European Union and what the South West is famous for is wanting to be able to be self-governing, to be independent, to be different from those in Westminster who tell them what to do. And the worst thing for the West Country is to be a blanket of blue where the Tories just take you for granted. And that's the thing I think people around the country are beginning to realise. That a Conservative majority is now not in question, but a Conservative landslide means they will take you for granted wherever you

I guess we don't have enough safety force in our city. I feel bad for the kids. To not give them a chance to speak gives them the upper hand. We're fueling their fires. The anarchist thing pisses me off. But I guess the definition of anarchy is

James Buchal

It probably would have been nothing more than 30 to 40 punks wearing masks who could easily be kept at bay. It would have been very easy for the police to have marched along side of us or do whatever they needed to do so the community wouldn't have to lose the whole

Steny Hoyer

Look, you've had experience for 100 days. Your party is a divided party – you found that out. Some things you thought you were going to be able to do you haven't been able to do, not because of Democratic opposition but Republican

Donald J. Trump

Don't forget, this is called the Republican Party. It's not called the Conservative

Chuck Schumer

The Republican plan is just steeped in hypocrisy. For the last eight years, all we heard from our Republican colleagues was that Obama was raising the deficit, and we need to cut programs that benefit the poor and middle class. All of a sudden, now, with a Republican president and a proposed tax cut for the wealthy, we're hearing from the other side of the aisle, Deficits don't

Chuck Schumer

It was out of touch with reality. If there's a shutdown, it falls on their shoulders, I think they know that. Our position has been clear, and it's nothing news. No poison-pill riders. It is good that once again the president seems to be backing off his threat to hold health care and government funding hostage. Like the withdrawal of money for the wall, this decision brings us closer to a bipartisan agreement to fund the government and is good news for the American

Andrew Gurman

This is not the kind of thing you can put off for a while. They're going to need urgent surgery, radiation. They are not going to be able to work. If they lose coverage for more than 60 days, how are they going to afford huge insurance premiums? That scenario is all too common,

Chuck Schumer

We hope that Republicans don't pass it. But if it does, American politics will take its effect. It was out of touch with reality, that

Ed Rogers

The Trump administration’s tax plan has sparked a national conversation with the predictable groaning about tax cuts increasing deficits and adding to the national debt. Even if you don’t believe that growth will compensate for lost revenue, it’s possible to think that the greater good is being served by trying to produce a spike in growth and lifting the economy from eight years of Obama-era stagnation, missed opportunities and fading dreams. Whereas rising debt is like a time bomb set to detonate sometime in the future, low economic growth is a cancer here today, eating away at our nation’s

Mark Hamrick

As we know, the failure of the president and the Republican-led Congress to make good on his promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act was a dramatic swing and miss. The challenge in pushing through a tax reform package of substance might well be even tougher. When discussing health care, we're talking about a segment of the U.S. economy. When discussing individual and corporate tax reform, we're basically talking about the entire economy. The split within the GOP over taxes might well be just as difficult to

Walter Shapiro

When Americans cast their 2016 presidential ballots, the collective emotion could be summarized as: “How did we get this dismal choice? Not since 1956 had there been such profound dissatisfaction with how candidates were nominated for president. The problem was not only the unpopularity of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, but also widespread accusations of [].feedback

Dave Brat

I just think if [senators] have eyes to see how tight this thing is, if they change more than a iota – they know what they are doing, they are rational, they see what it was like to get to the sweet spot here. Any big changes, I don't think it will go over too

David McIntosh

There's still more work to be done on this bill in the Senate and on further health care reforms, but any GOP moderates who stand in the way at this point are proving that they simply don't want to keep their campaign promises to get rid of

Paul Ryan

We think the MacArthur amendment is a great way to lower premiums [and] give states more flexibility while protecting people with pre-existing conditions. Those are the three things we want to achieve. I think it helps us get to

We're pleased he's backing off. We're not opposed to border security. We are opposed to the wall. And we're not going to allow any dollars in any kind of border security appropriation to be used for a wall.

Caitlyn Jenner

My loyalties are not with Donald Trump. I will come after him and come after Republicans if they come after my community. I've got a voice and they better listen, OK? I will come after them. Here's the deal: yes, I have always had views that lean more towards the Republican party when it comes to politics (as in) less government, believing in the Constitution and all that kind of stuff. But my loyalties and my fights are not going to be with the Republican party. My loyalties are with my community and fighting for my

I'm not the first to observe that a Republican Congress only cares about the deficit when a Democrat is in the White House. It may be that Dick Cheney is right and that deficits don't matter to the public, but they do matter to the

Over the past couple of months, House conservatives have worked tirelessly to improve the American Health Care Act to make it better for the American people. The House Freedom Caucus has taken an official position in support of the current

Nancy Pelosi

Many would lose access to affordable health coverage entirely, on top of the 24 million hard-working Americans who would already lose insurance under the original TrumpCare language. The monstrous immorality of TrumpCare is perfectly encapsulated in House Republicans' plan to exempt their own health coverage from the damage it will do to everyone else. If House Republicans are afraid of TrumpCare for themselves, they have no right to force it on hard-working American

Ben Bernanke - Federal Reserve System

I think the Republican perspective, which I assume Gary Cohn is thinking about, although I don't know, is to go back to the old world before the crisis, where you had free-standing investment banks and importantly, from the perspective of the free-standing investment banks, they weren't controlled. They weren't regulated by the Fed. They didn't have any of the bank

Chris Collins

Chris Coons

I think the main reason they're really struggling to pass the FY17 appropriations is not because of vigorous opposition from Democrats, it's because of internal disagreements. The reality is a Republican president and a Republican-controlled Congress ought to be able to get the government funded and moving

Sam Stovall - Standard & Poor's

It's a pretty interesting pattern, markets get euphoric when Republicans get elected. We think there's going to be a lot of fiscal conservation and pro-economic legislation. What they find is Congress remains Congress and tends not to get anything done, . My feeling is that using a limited observation set, and knowing we've gone 14, 15 months without even a pull back, chances are good we end up seeing at least some stock market softness or a challenge in this May through October

Sam Stovall - Standard & Poor's

It's sort of a consequence of history that we find many Democrats have come into power after there has been a financial or economic downturn, so they usually end up coming in just as the economy is about to recover, and they go along for a ride. That's why Obama had huge gains, Clinton had huge gains and Kennedy did

I am sickened by this incident with dissident republican terrorists placing a bomb close to a primary school in north Belfast.

She's clearly done better than in 2012. But at the same time, the result is below what the Front was hoping for, and what the polls were saying. The Front was unable to get voters on the right.

The evidence convinces me that my president has lied repeatedly, deceiving public officials and the American people. I assumed that in coming out for impeachment I would lose the nomination, which I did. It had absolutely nothing to do with politics. I still resent people saying that

Larry Hogan Jr.

While the travesties of Watergate were perpetrated outside the regular channels of Republican Party organizations, they were all committed by Republicans for the benefit of a Republican president.

Grover Norquist

It is probably going to look a lot like what Trump talked about in the campaign merged with the Republican House proposal, which was co-authored by the Trump people. So, we know Trump in the campaign talked about taking the 35 percent corporate rate down to 15 percent. That will go at least to 20, maybe to 15 – that could be the surprise next week. But at least to 20. It will also include something that both the House Republicans and Trump made a commitment on, and that is the business

Mick Mulvaney

This president should be allowed to have his highest priorities funded even though the Democrats rightly have a seat at the table because of the Senate rules.

The MacArthur amendment makes a bad bill even worse. The only people this amendment will help are the members of Congress scrambling to pass any repeal bill for partisan political reasons, no matter how bad it is for their constituents. Millions will still lose their health insurance. States can still avoid critical consumer protections. Insurers can still refuse to provide basic coverage, institute annual and lifetime caps on the care they cover, and charge people with preexisting conditions more just because they need care, effectively pricing people out of the

So our charge from the electorate – the House of Representatives, we won the popular vote and we ran on an Obamacare repeal and replace plan.

A liberal Democratic friend expressed amazement today that, in light of the Russia scandal and President Trump’s general ineptness, more Republicans haven’t washed their hands of him. There’s no one reason for their reluctance to break free - increasing tribal loyalty, unrealistic hope he could still help them get tax or health-care reform and just plain spinelessness (including fear of the talk-radio mob) all play a

Josh Kraushaar - National Journal

Republicans were able to use their traditional playbook (to force a runoff), painting Ossoff as a down-the-line liberal to stunt his momentum. If that strategy works in the midterms, they'll be well-positioned to hold their House majority. Democrats need to win these types of diverse, affluent Republican districts to regain control of the lower chamber. … All told, it doesn't look as if many typical Republican voters -- even those who don't care for Trump -- were inclined to vote for a Democrat to send a message….feedback
