The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has run commercials accusing Republican Tom MacArthur of profiting off the misfortune of others as the former owner of an insurance firm that has settled lawsuits from disaster victims who claimed they were not paid for all their losses.

Lawmakers press Supreme Court on pregnancy rights

More than 120 members of Congress have urged the Supreme Court to recognize that pregnant workers are entitled to reasonable accommodations such as light duty, saying it's needed to ensure that expectant mothers are not forced out of their jobs. In a friend-of-the-court brief, the Democratic lawmakers - 99 from the House, including Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi , and 24 senators - said UPS delivery driver Peggy Young of Lorton, Va., was treated unfairly by her employer when it asked her to take unpaid maternity leave rather than provide a less strenuous position as her doctors advised.

Why Republicans Should Never Play Nice with Democrats

Democrats routinely deride Republicans as extremists bent on coarsening the discourse. In January 2014, in the same interview in which he infamously claimed that ISIS was a "jayvee" team, President Obama blamed conservative media for polarizing the country: The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I'm not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh, but I'm somebody who is interested in solving problems and is pretty practical, and that, actually, a lot of the things we've put in place worked better than people might think.

Now, California's version of Obamacare faces a threat from the left, personified by backers of Proposition 45, a far-reaching initiative on the Nov. 4 ballot that would regulate health insurance but also disrupt the nascent program that has provided health care coverage to millions of previously uninsured Californians.
