#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.

North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory and other Republicans will propose Monday to raise base salaries for the least experienced teachers, AP reported.
The move is intended to make those teachers more competitive with Southern neighbours and the nation. The document says the legislature will consider a bill to ensure all public school teachers make at least $33,000 during the 2014-15 school year and at least $35,000 the following year.
Teachers have reportedly had only one raise since 2008, leading to low morale.
#AceNewsServices says GOP Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers faces a possible House Ethics Committee investigation over allegations by a former staffer that she improperly mixed campaign and official funds to help win a 2012 House leadership race.

The Office of Congressional Ethics has recommended that the Ethics Committee conduct a full probe into the case. The Ethics Committee is expected to announce as early as today that it will take another 45 days to review the OCE recommendation. OCE originally forwarded its recommendation to the Ethics Committee shortly before the Christmas holiday.
#AceNewsServices says The Affordable Care Act (also known as “Obamacare”) is one of the most divisive policies ever pushed through by an American president.
Designed to ensure everyone is insured in the event of illness or injury, it’s sent the Republican Party mad with rage—with prominent conservatives calling it “the end of freedom.” Yet the concept of Obamacare was originally proposed by Nixon Republicans in the 1970’s, and fully supported by the GOP while Democrats campaigned against it.

#AceNewsServices says l pick this article up whilst browsing through a number of posts, and thought this sums up “US Political System” it is by a man called F Eric Saunders and was first published on January 16, 2012. What l found so interesting was how right he was ,without knowing how close he was to the #truth.
He writes as follows:
Someone close to me recently remarked that, in his opinion, it is a serious problem that the Republicans in congress are refusing to cooperate and compromise with the President to “get anything done”. He was, of course, just mimicking the latest load of manure being spread by the progressive/liberal media machine. Apparently, the “plan” this time is to propose a bunch of radical legislation that will get us further into debt while doing nothing to alleviate our current problems, quietly refuse to even consider any of the proposed alternatives, and then to cry “foul” and “obstructionism” as often and as loudly as they can. (“If you tell a lie often enough it becomes the truth.”) Propaganda works! But if you really understand what Progressives want to “get done”, then you probably think it would be tantamount to treason TO cooperate with them. Indeed, I am frequently quite annoyed at our Republican representatives for going TOO FAR to compromise with the evil agenda.
A LOT of people, including most of our more recent gaggle of Republican presidential candidates, just don’t get it. They seem to think that one candidate is pretty much the same as another – with just minor difference about how they would “tweek” the system. People think that it is OK to vote for the man (or woman) they like best, while ignoring their underlying agenda. But, in fact the Fabian/Alinsky bunch is trying their very best to take our country in exactly the wrong direction. The “sameness” between the Republicans and Democrats is merely a result of the fact that “progressives” have to move very slowly, else people will rebel at having their freedoms taken away too suddenly – while the “conservatives” have to kowtow to the progressives by compromising with them regarding big government largess, else people will rebel at having their “entitlements” reduced, and then the conservatives would NEVER get elected. After all, candidates get elected by what they promise, don’ they?
