Former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, who bested Mitt Romney in more than 10 state contests in the battle for the Republican presidential nomination, ripped into President Barack Obama on Thursday after the Supreme Court of the United States upheld most of the federal health-care law. Santorum unleashed some very strongly worded attacks against Obama, calling him a "very dangerous person" who "believes he is above the law."
U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fl, weighed in on Thursday after the Supreme Court of the United States upheld most of the federal health-care law that President Barack Obama signed in 2010.
With the Supreme Court upholding most of the federal health-care law on Thursday, Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC), insisted that the only option left to repeal the law was by throwing President Barack Obama out in November.
"Today's Supreme Court decision sets the stakes for the November election,” Priebus said in a statement released less than an hour after the decision was released. “Now, the only way to save the country from ObamaCare's budget-busting government takeover of health care is to elect a new president.
Justices on the Supreme Court of the United States have an odd history of not doing what they are expected to do. After George H. W. Bush appointed David Souter, the justice from New Hampshire turned into a fairly liberal member of the Court. It happens--FDR’s choice of Felix Frankfurter did not turn into a liberal justice and Earl Warren certainly was not as conservative as Eisenhower thought he would be.
Even as gas prices continue to drop across Florida, Republican Senate hopeful U.S. Rep. Connie Mack continues to hammer the Democrat incumbent -- U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson -- for opposing the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Mack’s latest salvo against Nelson came late Wednesday when the congressman released a statement attacking the senator over the pipeline.
Running in a crowded Republican primary to replace U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, Florida state Rep. Gary Aubuchon, R-Cape Coral, has taken to the airwaves to launch his first commercial of the campaign. Aubuchon does not hammer one of his numerous primary opponents in the new ad. Instead, he focuses on the national debt and pledges to help rein in federal spending if he is elected to Congress.
With the second quarter of 2012 winding down -- and the important June 30 deadline looming on Saturday -- the team behind President Barack Obama’s bid for a second term is turning up their fundraising efforts calling on supporters to forgo birthday and wedding gifts to back their candidate.
U.S. Rep. Connie Mack, the favorite to win the Republican nomination to challenge Democrat incumbent U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, unveiled his team in Hillsborough County on Tuesday.
“Having a strong and active team representing our campaign is invaluable,” Mack said in a statement. “With the help of these great activists we will continue to get our campaign message out in the Tampa Bay region. I am thrilled these talented individuals are dedicating their time to retaking the U.S. Senate and defeating liberal Bill Nelson."
Ron DeSantis, an attorney and veteran who is running for Congress in a new seat representing a district going from St. Johns County south to Volusia County on the Atlantic coast, continues to garner impressive national support. Earlier in the week, DeSantis unveiled the backing of U.S. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah. On Tuesday, DeSantis announced that the Club for Growth PAC is backing his congressional bid.
With the Supreme Court of the United States expected to rule on Thursday over the constitutionality of the federal health-care law that President Barack Obama signed in 2010, Florida Gov. Rick Scott doubled down on his opposition to it on Tuesday. Scott was a prominent opponent of the federal health-care proposal and has been a staunch backer of the constitutional challenge from Florida and more than 20 other states to the law.
