House votes to let insurers offer employer plans that dona t comply with Obamacare

The House on Thursday took another swipe at Obamacare ahead of the midterm elections, with about two dozen Democrats joining the Republican majority to pass a bill that lets insurers continue to offer employer health plans that do not comply with the law's coverage standards. President Obama has threatened to veto the measure, which passed the chamber 247-167 but will surely die in the Democrat-controlled Senate.

Elections Poll Explorer: Kansas reset button gets hit once again

Since we started doing the Poll Explorer model, there's been only one really game-changing event: the decision by underwhelming Democratic candidate Chad Taylor to drop out and give well-funded independent Greg Orman a clear shot at Republican incumbent Pat Roberts in the Kansas Senate race.
