From Frustrated Conservatives, a Call to Take Away the Modern Filibuster

A hand­ful of House con­ser­vat­ives are pre­pared to de­fund Planned Par­ent­hood
and block an Ir­an nuc­le­ar deal by any means ne­ces­sary. There is only one prob­lem;

“You’re ma­jor­ity lead­er, you took over the job Janu­ary 3, 2015. … You are

earlier this week by Rep. Peter Roskam to delay a vote on the disapproval resolution
until the president transmits all “side deals” related to the Iran nuclear agreement.

Federal contractors tell Obama: Stop picking on us

an agenda that’s focused on raising wages and creating safer workplaces.

Since 2009, the President has issued 13 executive orders that have led to 16 regulations
applying to companies that do business with the government.

The directives range from Obama’s announcement of a higher minimum wage for employees
of contracting firms, to new rules requiring companies to report labor violations
as part of the bidding process.
