Wasserman Schultz: Millennials Will Gradually Embrace Obamacare And It Will Be "Incredible"

ANDREA MITCHELL: Congresswoman, what about this poll? It shows that, first of all, among the millennials, many of them think that it will be more expensive. Only 13% say they will definitely enroll, 16% will probably, 41% are split. They're also concerned about costs. We see in this poll that 40% think the care will be worse, 37% think care will be

Turley: Obama's "Become The Very Danger The Constitution Was Designed To Avoid"

REP. BOB GOODLATTE (R-VA): Professor Turley, the constitution, the system of separated powers is not simply about stopping one branch of government from usurping another. It's about protecting the liberty of Americans from the dangers of concentrated government power. How does the president's unilateral modification of act of Congress affect both t

Obama: "Growing Inequality" In America "Drives Everything I Do In This Office"

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We know that people’s frustrations run deeper than these most recent political battles. Their frustration is rooted in their own daily battles, to make ends meet, to pay for college, buy a home, save for retirement. It’s rooted in the nagging sense that no matter how hard they work, the deck is stacked against them. And it’s

Krauthammer: Young People Are Going To Walk Away From Obamacare Because It's A Bad Deal For Them

JUAN WILLIAMS: The big question is for people who don't have that, who aren't covered by their parents or anyone else. Those folks who normally would say, "You know what? I don't have insurance. Nothing is ever going to happen to me. I'm young, I'm beautiful, you know, it doesn't matter. I'm so smart, I'm at Harvard. What happens when something ha

Cavuto: Congress Should Get A Gold Star For Doing Nothing

NEIL CAVUTO: It was the headline that caught my eye. Today's New York Times: "Underachieving Congress Appears in No Hurry to Change Things Now." The story goes onto bemoan a Republican House, in particular, that has just two weeks left before, and I quote: "'s likely entry into the congressional record book for underachievement." No grand b

Ted Cruz: Obama "Picking And Choosing Which Laws To Follow" Is "Dictatorial"

SEN. TED CRUZ (R-TX): One of the most disturbing aspects of the Obama presidency is the willingness of this president to disregard the law, to ignore the law. You know, we were talking a few minutes ago about Obamacare. And you mentioned it’s the law of the land. If it’s the law of the land, the president shouldn't keep ignoring the law. He

Obama: Set Aside Belief That Government Can't Fix Inequality

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Third, we need to set aside the belief that government cannot do anything about reducing inequality. It’s true that government cannot prevent all the downsides of the technological change and global competition that are out there right now -- and some of those forces are also some of the things that are helping us grow. And it’

Sen. Reid: Obamacare Will Be "Good" For Democrats In 2014

JEFF GILLAN, KSNV-TV: Let me ask you about the political fallout. How much of a political liability do you think this will be for Democrats in the November 2014 midterms? SEN. HARRY REID (D-NV): I think it's going to be good for them. By that time, there will be a lot of people on it that have already signed up. It’ll be fine. GILLAN: You

Democratic Rep. Reveals He's Paying More Under Obamacare

REP. DEVIN NUNES (R-CA): We have -- theoretically, we have plan and continue to have a plan that covers every American. It just does it in a different way. What they tried to do, what the Democrats tried to do with Obamacare is they tried to nationalize. They basically tried to create a Medicare for all approach. And that is fundamentally flawed

Obama: "Government Is Us"

BARACK OBAMA: But government can’t stand on the sidelines in our efforts, because government is us. It can and should reflect our deepest values and commitments. And if we refocus our energies on building an economy that grows for everybody and gives every child in this country a fair chance at success, then I remain confident that the future st

Obama At Obamacare Youth Summit: "This Is A Big Deal, To Quote Joe Biden"

PRESIDENT OBAMA: There will be other things that come up during the course of the next several months because you're starting off a new program that has an impact on one-sixth of the economy. This is a big deal, to quote Joe Biden. So -- but we're going to keep on working on it and improving it and refining it. If we see a problem we're going to fi

Obama: "This Law Is Going To Work And For The Sake Of Our Economic Security, It Needs To Work"

Obama: Christmas Is No Time For Congress To Tell 1 Million Americans They've Lost Their Insurance

PRESIDENT OBAMA: By the way, Christmas time is no time for Congress to tell more than 1 million of these Americans that they have lost their unemployment insurance, which is what will happen if Congress does not act before they leave on their holiday vacation. The point is, these programs are not typically hammocks for people to just lie back a

Obama: "A Relentlessly Growing Deficit Of Opportunity Is A Bigger Threat To Our Future Than Our Rapidly Shrinking Fiscal Deficit"

PRESIDENT OBAMA: When it comes to our budget, we should not be stuck in a stale debate from two years ago or three years ago. A relentlessly growing deficit of opportunity is a bigger threat to our future than our rapidly shrinking fiscal deficit. So that’s step one towards restoring mobility, making sure our economy is growing faster.

Chris Matthews: Sarah Palin's Appeal Is "She Doesn't Give A Rat's Butt What The Facts Are"

SAM STEIN, HUFFINGTON POST: Sure. Well, I think one of the criticisms that conservatives had, outside of Michele Bachman, has been that the Obama administration has used its executive authority to delay some of these mandates, to tinker with the law in a way they think Congress should have a say. And I understand their concern in that. But some of

Lawrence O'Donnell To Bill O'Reilly: The "War On Christmas" Doesn't Exist

O'Reilly: President Obama Tries To Make A Comeback

BILL O'REILLY: So that's what the White House is selling, that President Obama wants what is best for the folks. And I believe that's true in theory, in theory. He does want what's best for the folks. The problem is his vision is running up against reality. The economy is being held back by his tax policies and by Obamacare mandates on business. T
