    Reform stalls as tariff loopholes return to the House
    By David A. Fahrenthold, Updated: Tuesday, July 3, 11:01 AM

    Back in 2010, House Republicans made a bold promise. To show they were serious about reform, they would deny themselves two well-used — but frequently misused — tools of congressional power.

    In short, they would stop doing expensive favors for the folks back home with taxpayer dollars.

    The House GOP banned “earmarks,” which allow a legislator to dole out taxpayer money for hometown projects. They also banned a lesser-known kind of favor, which allowed a congressman to give a local company a break on its federal tariff payments.

    But now, 19 months later, dozens of Republicans have decided they went too far. They want to bring one kind of favor back.

    ;)

    GOP damage control after Team Romney definition of mandate;)
    By Justin Sink and Jonathan Easley - 07/03/12 05:19 PM ET

    Republicans sought to do damage control for GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Tuesday after a senior adviser’s tap-dance on the healthcare mandate.

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in an appearance on Fox News suggested Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom misspoke when he called the mandate a penalty and not a tax, while other Republicans suggested Fehrnstrom’s comments were merely a trial balloon.

    Chris Collins: 'People Now Don't Die From Prostate Cancer, Breast Cancer':eek:
    GOP congressional candidate
    The Huffington Post | By Elise Foley Posted: 07/03/2012 3:13 pm Updated: 07/03/2012 5:14 pm

    "People now don't die from prostate cancer, breast cancer and some of the other things," he told The Batavian in an interview that was flagged Tuesday by City & State NY. Collins was discussing his desire to repeal Obamacare.

    "The fact of the matter is, our healthcare today is so much better, we're living so much longer, because of innovations in drug development, surgical procedures, stents, implantable cardiac defibrillators, neural stimulators -- they didn't exist 10 years ago," he continued. "The increase in cost is not because doctors are making a lot more money. It's what you can get for healthcare, extending your life and curing diseases."
