QUOTE: the House Select Committee on Benghazi issued its final report on Tuesday, finding no new evidence of culpability or wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton in the 2012 attacks in Libya that left four Americans dead. The 800-page report, however, included some new details about the night of the attacks, and the context in which it occurred, and it delivered a broad rebuke of government agencies like the Defense Department, the Central Intelligence Agency and the State Department — and the officials who led them — for failing to grasp the acute security risks...

Jan 07, 2011 In Battle Over Health Law, Math Cuts Both Ways

QUOTE: Much of the health care debate will center on cost — to the government and to employers. On Thursday, Republicans issued their own report, called “Obamacare: A Budget-Busting Job-Killing Law,” which concluded, “The health care law will cost the nation $2.6 trillion when fully implemented, and add $701 billion to the deficit in the first 10 years.” The Republicans’ projections were in contrast to the budget office’s analysis of the health care law, and a related budget reconciliation measure, after they were adopted last March.

Jul 16, 2008 G.O.P. Resistance May Delay Housing Legislation

QUOTE: The reluctance by Republicans to embrace President Bush’s plan came as shares in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac plunged again on Tuesday, raising the chances that the federal government might need to take over the companies — a prospect that some fiscal conservative lawmakers likened to socialism. “When I picked up my newspaper yesterday, I thought I woke up in France,” Senator Jim Bunning, Republican of Kentucky, said at a banking committee hearing. “But no, it turns out socialism is alive and well in America.”
