#AceNewsReport – Sept.22: Republicans want President Obama as a negotiating partner when it comes to budget talks, something Democrats are determined to avoid.
With a little more than a week to prevent a government shutdown, the GOP thinks the talks should be between them and Obama since they now have control of the House and Senate.

#AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – A new GOP bill would specifically grant the Obama administration limited Title X authority, which would allow it to establish a centre to train and equip members of the Syrian opposition.
The measure includes several provisions intended to satisfy Republicans and Democrats worried about giving the administration blanket authority to arm and train rebel groups, who would be used in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

#AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – July 25 – House Republicans are moving toward a vote on a slimmed-down border bill that would provide President Obama with less than $1 billion in funding to deal with the influx of child migrants.
While the details are still being finalized, Republicans emerged from a private meeting Friday saying that there was an overwhelming sense that the House should pass some sort of legislation to address the border crisis before the August recess.
“Our Republican conference carefully and thoughtfully considered where the country is, what needs to be done, and I believe that we will act,” said House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Texas). “There’s no one in there that didn’t recognize that we have to address this problem.”

#AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – July 25 – Senior White House advisor’s are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations.
Dan Pfeiffer, a senior advisor to Obama, said Friday that White House is taking the prospect of impeachment in the GOP-controlled House more seriously than many others in Washington, who see it as unlikely.
Pfeiffer noted that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who has a large following among Tea Party conservatives, has called for Obama’s impeachment and a large block of the GOP’s base favours it.

#AceBreakingNews – UNITED STATES (Washington) – July 16 – Senate Democratic candidates have kept up a torrential fundraising pace, giving several in top races a key advantage as they fight to hold the upper chamber this fall.
But the GOP’s advantage in super-PAC spending forced some incumbents to spend heavily, narrowing their cash edge over their Republican challengers.

The Koch brothers and their wealthy allies pledged to spend $400 million on the 2012 elections — and it looks like they did it: Tax filings from an array of Koch-connected non-profits show that the Kochs’ political coalition raised over $400 million during 2012, an analysis by the Washington Post and Centre for Responsive Politics shows. The Koch network alone raised nearly as much as the Romney campaign, and tens of millions more than GOP presidential candidate John McCain raised for his entire 2008 campaign.
#AceBreakingNews says just in Senate Democrats got enough Republican support to move ahead with a bill to extend unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed for three months. The bill still has some hurdles to clear in the Senate, and significant opposition remains in the GOP-controlled House. A half dozen Republicans voted with Democrats to move forward with the legislation.
