Schumer grabs new power

Greg Nash

By Alexander Bolton (The Hill)…Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) is all but certain to become the next leader of Senate Democrats after the 2016 election, completing a rise to power that began more than a decade ago. Schumer spent Friday calling fellow Democratic senators to win their support to succeed Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (Nev.), who personally endorsed Schumer after announcing he would not run for reelection. He believes he has the votes to win an overwhelming majority of the caucus, a person close to Schumer said. If Democrats recapture Senate control next year, Schumer would become the first Jewish…

How Boehner, Pelosi surprised everyone with a $200 billion deal

Greg Nash

By Peter Sullivan  (The Hill)…A few days after the chaos of a failed vote to fund the Department of Homeland Security, Speaker John Boehner asked for a meeting, alone, with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. Compromise was on his mind. With automatic cuts to doctors under Medicare set to take effect at the end of March, Boehner (R-Ohio) wanted to explore the possibility of a deal that would end the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR), and with it a problem that has dogged Congress for nearly two decades. The March 4 meeting in Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) office on the second floor of…

Feds push to inform public about ObamaCare tax breaks

By Sarah Ferris The federal government is taking extra steps to help the millions of people who qualify for ObamaCare tax breaks this year but may not know it. The Treasury Department released fact sheets Friday about five of the most common types of exemptions related to a person’s income level, job status, Medicaid eligibility and other scenarios. For example, people who have incomes below a certain threshold are exempt because the coverage would be considered “unaffordable.” People can also seek a “hardship” exemption if they had costly medical expenses, were victims of domestic violence or lost a family member. People…

Reid backs Schumer for leader

By Alexander Bolton Retiring Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) is endorsing New York Sen. Charles Schumer to succeed him as Democratic leader. His backing cements Schumer’s status as the strong favorite to replace Reid and might quash a possible leadership race. “I think Schumer should be able to succeed me,” Reid told The Washington Post Friday. Schumer’s aides and allies have long made clear that he would seek to replace Reid when he retired. They say he has broad support among his colleagues after helping to engineer the Democratic takeover of the Senate in 2006 and the filibuster-proof majority in 2008 during his…

Obama endorses Medicare deal

By Sarah Ferris and Jordan Fabian (The Hill)…President Obama signaled Wednesday he’s prepared to sign a bipartisan deal on Medicare that is emerging in Congress. “I’ve got my pen ready to sign a good bipartisan bill,” the president said during a speech at the White House. “I love when Congress passes bipartisan bills that I can sign. It’s very encouraging,” he joked to applause. The emerging “doc fix” deal would repeal a Medicare rule known as the sustainable growth rate, which triggers automatic cuts in payments to doctors. The package would also extend for two years federal funding under ObamaCare for community health…

EU gears up for propaganda war with Russia

(Reuters) – The European Union is set to launch a first operation in a new propaganda war with Russia within days of EU leaders giving formal approval to the campaign at a summit on Thursday. Officials told Reuters that a dozen public relations and communications experts would start work by the end of March in Brussels with a brief to counter what the EU says is deliberate misinformation coordinated by the Kremlin over Moscow’s role and aims in Ukraine and elsewhere in Europe. It is the first stage of a plan that leaders want EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini to finalize by June,…

Italy’s Silvio Berlusconi ends community service term

AP

(BBC)…The former Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, has served his final few hours of a community service sentence for tax fraud. Berlusconi, 78, has spent four hours a week with elderly dementia patients since May last year. He told reporters at the care home near Milan where he has been working he intends to “continue the experience” in his free time. The three-time Italian leader remains embroiled in several legal battles. He looked cheerful as he arrived for his final visit to the care home. “The time spent with the sick, with the volunteers, with the health and social workers,…

Ex-CIA chief in federal charge plea

Reuters

(BBC)…David Petraeus, a former CIA director and four-star general, has reached a plea deal with the US Justice Department in which he will admit to mishandling classified materials. It ends a long investigation into whether he provided secret information to his mistress. He resigned from his post at the CIA in 2012, after it emerged he was having an affair with his biographer. A Justice Department statement said a plea agreement had been filed. The deal means that Mr Petraeus will plead guilty to one count of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material, but could avoid an embarrassing trial….

Judd Gregg: McConnell aims to restore the Senate

By Judd Gregg – Of all the atrocities that have been committed on the body politic over the last six years — and there have been many, arising from both sides of the aisle — the dismantling of the purpose and the role of the United States Senate is the most significant for the long-term health of our constitutional system. When our founders gathered in Philadelphia in 1787, one of the things they most wanted to correct was the tyranny of the King and of the English parliament. They wanted to be confident that, in this new government they were creating from…

France: Quels pays les voyageurs français doivent-ils éviter?

Une Française a été enlevée mardi 24 février au Yémen. Isabelle Prime, 30 ans, travaillait comme consultante pour une société spécialisée dans la protection sociale et était responsable d’un projet pour le Fonds social yéménite, une institution gouvernementale. Le Yémen, à la situation politique chaotique et aux conditions de sécurité très précaires, est sur la « liste rouge » du ministère des affaires étrangères français, qui « déconseille formellement » à ses ressortissants de s’y rendre. L’ambassade de France à Sanaa avait été fermée le 11 février, « provisoirement et jusqu’à nouvel ordre », après le coup d’Etat des rebelles houthistes. Au 25 février, la liste des « conseils aux voyageurs » du Quai d’Orsay comptait 25 pays entièrement « formellement déconseillés » (Yémen, Syrie, Irak,…
