In Hudson Valley, Dems Crowd Primary to Challenge Freshman Hayworth

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

The Hudson Valley’s redrawn 18th Congressional District stretches across farms, tony vacation communities, and struggling post-industrial cities.

As Tri-State Rebuilds Post-Irene, Politics of Disaster Relief Come Into Focus

Friday, September 02, 2011

Right now FEMA is being suffocated by this stupid idea that the more you cut will solve our problems. We're cutting and losing jobs. Our people need help immediately. They don't want to hear a debate between Democrats and Republicans about when should we cut and when shouldn't we.

—U.S. Congressman Bill Pascrell (D-NJ 8th), who serves on House Budget and Ways and Means Committees, on The Brian Lehrer Show.

Right now we don't have an incentive that is based appropriately in the consumer world. There are no incentives to bring those costs under control, and yet we are faced with a situation in which those restraints will be forced upon the public through mechanisms like [the Affordable Care Act].
