Senate. Remember she put party politics over working for Americans by siding with John Boehner and voting over 40 times to do away with the much-needed health-care reform without promoting any plan of her own to reduce health-care costs and provide care for all. To the person who doesnt like national news while watching our local news would you rather hear more from Shelley and Natalie and Rahall? For goodness sakes get off of coal. We have more problems in West Virginia. Why do so many local radio people let their voices fall at the end of every single sentence to make it sound as though they have just conveyed the saddest news ever heard on the planet? Have Rockefeller, Rahall and Byrd spent more money here through grants and federal aid for jobs and roads than all of the Republicans?

10 Things to Know for Thursday – Yahoo News
I am the guy that gets us out of shutdowns,” McConnell told CNN in an exclusive interview Wednesday. “It’s a failed policy,” he said of shutdowns. McConnell: ‘Nothing I haven’t said publicly’ Earlier this month, Politico reported that, if selected majority leader, McConnell plans to tell the president to accept bills reining in the administration’s policies or veto them and risk a government shutdown. Last year’s government shutdown was hardly a popular event, and McConnell’s Democratic opponent, Alison Lundergan Grimes, pounced on the story. “Senator Gridlock’s shutdown promise will hurt Kentucky small businesses,” screamed a Grimes campaign press release. McConnell opposed the last shutdown, fueled by a strategy from his fellow Republican Ted Cruz, R-Texas, to only fund the government by defunding Obamacare, which passed the GOP-led House but had no chance in the Senate. The shutdown backfired on Republicans, and after the government reopened, McConnell made clear he did not intend to go through it again, citing a Kentucky saying on the Senate floor: “There’s no education in the second kick of a mule.” Still, McConnell is vowing to try to roll back Obama regulations that Republicans loathe, especially EPA rules on coal that Kentuckians see as harmful to their coal-rich economy.
