“In addition to the 4.8 million vehicles recalled for a problem with the ignition, an additional 1.3 million are now being recalled due to a problem with the power steering that could cause an accident.” – Ace Of Spades

“Long before the Chevrolet Cobalt became known for having a deadly ignition defect, it was already seen as a lemon. Owners complained about power steering failures, locks inexplicably opening and closing, doors jamming shut in the rain — even windows falling out.” – NY Times

Dear Senator Whitehouse and Congressman Waxman: On March 26, you wrote a letter to David Robertson, President of Koch Industries, about Koch’s ostensible relationship to the Keystone Pipeline. I found this surprising, as it is well documented that Koch has nothing to do with Keystone. It will neither ship oil on the pipeline, nor receive oil from the pipeline at any refinery. In fact, as the very report that you cited in your letter admits, Keystone will damage Koch’s economic interests by creating alternative outlets for Alberta oil that now flows to Koch’s Pine Bend refinery in Minnesota.” – Power Line

It could take years for Congressional committees to get all the documents demanded about the IRS scandal under mandatory subpoenas, IRS’ new Commissioner John Koskinen testified.

“I’d say the odds are 50/50 that, come next year, some unnamed Cruz supporter will tell a major media outlet that Rand has one on his right bicep of Neville Chamberlain. Incidentally, did anyone ever claim responsibility for that Cruz poster in L.A. that made the rounds online a few weeks ago? As funny as it was, it was crudely true to his political brand: He’s the one guy in the prospective presidential field who won’t play by the establishment’s rules, who’s going to do things his way no matter how much contempt is tossed at him. No wonder he’s thinking about making the Winston tat permanent.” – Hot Air

“The Times says the numbers break down like this: 4.5 million previously uninsured people are now on Medicaid; 3 million previously uninsured young people are now covered because of a provision that allows them to stay on their parents’ policies until age 26; and 2 million previously uninsured people have purchased coverage on the Obamacare exchanges.” – Washington Examiner

The House Republican 2015 budget, penned by the Wisconsin Republican, will seek to shave federal spending by $5 trillion by offering changes to social welfare programs, ending government ownership of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and repealing Obamacare.” – POLITICO
