GOP could chip away at Obamacare

A Republican-controlled Senate cannot repeal Obamacare, no matter how fervently GOP candidates pledge to do so on the campaign trail this fall. But if they do win the majority, Senate Republicans could inflict deep and lasting damage to the president's signature law.

Democrats Have a Plan to Overcome Obama in Red States

As national analysts say the odds are increasingly against them , Democratic senators and senior operatives remain optimistic the party's most vulnerable incumbents can survive stiff re-election challenges, even in red states where the president's popularity is sunk. With his national approval ratings mired in the low 40s seven weeks out from the Nov. 4 elections, Senate Democrats are well aware of the anchor President Barack Obama is proving to be in the midterms.

Eye on Washington /Congress debates measures going nowhere

Less than two months before pivotal congressional elections, Republicans were set Thursday to muscle legislation through the House that would let insurers continue selling health coverage that falls short of standards required by President Barack Obama's health care law. The measure was sure to pass but then die in the Democratic-run Senate, and the White House promised an Obama veto in any event.

Water Fight: House Republicans Take On EPA

If a ditch fills with rainwater - and nobody's around to see it - can it still be regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency? That's a question at the heart of a skirmish between EPA and House Republicans as the agency seeks to define which streams, wetlands, ditches, ponds and other water bodies fall under its jurisdiction. Once classified as a "water of the U.S.," the water body comes under EPA control and is subject to permits and restrictions under the Clean Water Act.
