FROM Chuck DeVore
Assemblyman Chuck DeVore Seeks US Senate Seat Last week, we spoke with Tom Campbell , regarded as the "moderate" Republican in this year's race to challenge Democratic US Senator Barbara Boxer . The other candidates are former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina and three-term Assemblyman Chuck DeVore from Irvine. He's a former aerospace engineer and an intelligence officer in the US Army Reserve who served in the Pentagon during the Reagan Administration.
The 'Big Five' Make a Deal: A Painful Budget in Sacramento The Governor and four legislative leaders have reached agreement on how to make up California's $26 billion shortfall. The deal calls for $15 billion in cuts, taking almost $4 billion from local governments and speeding up tax collections. Now legislators of both parties have to decide whether to support or oppose it. Democrats have the majority in both houses, but not enough to provide the necessary two-thirds for passage, so Republican votes will be required.
Proposition 1C: Housing and Emergency Shelter Trust Fund Act of 2006 More and more Californians can't afford to live here any more, but there's heated debate about what to do. Affordable housing bonds on next month's State and Los Angeles City ballots are aimed at the elderly, low-income families, the homeless and battered women. Governor Schwarzenegger and the legislature want approval of $2.8 billion in bonds to provide affordable housing for seniors and low-income families, as well as shelters for homeless people and battered women. Can California afford the new debt and the money to pay it off?

White House budget proposal slashes and burns President Trump's first budget request is considered dead on arrival in Congress — a familiar development in Capitol Hill. We hear what it reveals about the priorities of the new administration. What's likely to die… and what might survive?
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
Trump plays scolder-in-chief with NATO allies At the opening of NATO’s dramatic new headquarters in Brussels today, President Trump acknowledged that Article 5 — promising that “an attack on one nation is an attack on all” -- has only been invoked one time: in the aftermath of September 11. But the President failed to provide what 27 other Alliance members have been waiting for: a re-commitment by America’s new leader to Article 5. Instead, they got a scolding.
