TARP troubles afflict Republican incumbents in primary fights

When the House and Senate approved the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) in the fall of 2008, it was widely cast by leaders of both parties as a necessary step to keep the economy from tumbling into disaster. Fast forward 18 months, however, and that TARP vote, which passed the Senate 74-25 and the House 263-171, has become a political millstone for a handful of House and Senate Republicans who voted for it.

Dan Coats, the anti-Obama

Ask Dan Coats, why he decided to come out of political retirement to seek the Indiana Senate seat he vacated in 1998 and he offers just two words: Barack Obama.

What we know (and what we don't) about the politics of health care

Roughly 72 hours have passed since the House narrowly passed President Barack Obama's health care plan and it's been less than a day since he signed the legislation into law.

Assessing Organizing for America through the health care lens

Is a Republican-controlled House better for President Obama in 2012?

In the run-up to Sunday night's House passage of President Barack Obama's health care bill, the chief executive repeatedly urged Members of Congress to focus on the long term legacy of the vote not the short term politics.
