Clinton holds big lead on Sanders in Iowa

Hillary Clinton leads Bernie Sanders by 22 points in Iowa, according to a new poll.

Female voters, who favor Clinton over Sanders 61 percent to 27 percent, are bolstering her in the state. Among men, Clinton holds a narrow lead, 47 percent to 42 percent.
While Sanders has a 10-point lead over Clinton among younger voters, she dominates among voters over the age of 50, taking 63 percent support compared with 27 percent for Sanders.

And Clinton’s support comes from those who are more likely to participate in the caucuses on Feb. 1, the poll found.

Among those who have participated in past caucuses, Clinton’s lead expands to 27 points

Sanders campaign: No ISIS questions

Bernie Sanders, who has faced criticism that his campaign doesn’t focus enough on foreign policy, defended the call to not take questions on ISIS.

“Of course I will talk about ISIS, but today what we are talking about is a community in which half of the people don't have jobs,” he told reporters, according to CNN.

“You want to ask me about ISIS? We will talk about ISIS. But what I said, and let me repeat, you can agree with me or not, what I have said is that obviously ISIS and terrorism are a huge national issue that we have got to address, but so is poverty, so is unemployment, so is education, so is healthcare, so is the need to protect working families. And I will continue to talk about those issues."

Senate Republicans get green light for ObamaCare repeal bill


The Senate parliamentarian has ruled that defunding Planned Parenthood can be part of a special Republican package repealing parts of ObamaCare, The Hill has learned.

The parliamentarian on Tuesday gave word that the provision passes muster under the Senate’s Byrd Rule, which means it can be attached to a reconciliation package that cannot be filibustered on the Senate floor.

Reublican presidential candidates are blasting President Obama for rejecting the application to build the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) vowed to approve the project to transport oil sands in Canada to the Gulf Coast if he is elected president.

“President Obama’s rejection of the Keystone XL Pipeline is a huge mistake, and is the latest reminder that this administration continues to prioritize the demands of radical environmentalists over America’s energy security,” Rubio said in a statement on Friday. “When I’m president, Keystone will be approved, and President Obama’s backward energy policies will come to an end.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said in a tweet he would allow the pipeline to be built if he wins the 2016 race.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush called the president’s decision “politically motivated” and said in a tweet on Friday that it will be “a self-inflicted attack on the U.S. economy and jobs.”

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said the president is “once again stopping progress and blocking job creation” with the decision, adding in a Friday tweet that the pipeline “should be approved.”

Senate Republicans open door to weakening the filibuster

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is opening the door to changing the filibuster in response to growing pressure from Republicans angered that Democrats have blocked legislation from reaching the White House.

McConnell has appointed a special task force to explore changes to the filibuster rule and other procedural hurdles — including whether to eliminate filibusters on motions to proceed to legislation. That’s a tactic the minority often uses to shut down a bill before amendments can be considered

McConnell has tapped his close ally, Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), and Senate Rules Committee Chairman Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) to form a task force with Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) and two other freshmen to weigh various reforms. They hope to implement the changes at the start of next year.

“We’re going to take a serious look at whether Senate rules ought to be changed in order to make the Senate work more effectively,” Alexander said.
